Simple Kid - The Road

Posted on 25 February 2012 in Music (7 comments)

I don't often blog about music. I should because I absolutely love music. But, for whatever reason, I don't.

I'm going to make an exception for this track. It's by a bloke called Simple Kid and it's a track called The Road. It's an absolutely excellent track that I absolutely love and adore.

Oui, c’est tres bonne!

Posted on 12 May 2011 in Music, Transport (No comments yet - be the first!)

A couple of months ago I was doing a daily project meeting with one of my teams when I received a text message on my phone. Our French project manager turned around, momentarily confused as in a moment of audio branding-meets-railway geekery, my phone had uttered the SNCF's corporate jingle which is less well known as a mobile ringtone, and better known as the ditty they play on French railway stations before making an announcement.

She wasn't particularly enthusiastic about my ringtone selection, however I've now got another version to equally perturb here. Step forward, and courtesy of Adam and Joe's 6music show on 7 May, enjoy this techno remix of the SNCF jingle. Have fun!

Taking a trip back in time to see what 6music was playing back in 2002.

It’s very easy to be negative about Eurovision, so lets accentuate the positive

Fairy Tale of Censorship

Well Radio 1’s decision to censor The Pogues’ Fairytale of New York has now been reversed now, but sometimes I just want to throw a dictionary at some people.

Protection Racket

I don’t often comment on news stories but I loved the Media Guardian article about the fact that 90% of entertainment companies are failing to protect their products from illegal online use, and that only 50% of products have any protection.

Music Player Stats

Posted on 16 May 2005 in Music (No comments yet - be the first!)

Nearly three weeks since getting it, I’ve been rather haphazardly ripping CDs and uploading them onto my new MP3 player, getting so far 64 albums on it, with a total of 851 tracks and using 2.9Gb - only 16Gb to go.

Into the Digital Age

Posted on 28 April 2005 in Music (No comments yet - be the first!)

When I worked at Bush House, it was a daily ritual. Just before going out, pick up a CD, bung it in my CD player and run out the door. One CD would generally last me door to door. But not any more.

Singles, Space and the Compilation

Posted on 13 March 2005 in Music (No comments yet - be the first!)

I’ve been slowly digitising many of the singles I haven’t heard for years. It’s been quite a wonderful process - there’s 600 odd singles I haven’t listened to for goodness knows how long.

There is one song that I just can’t get enough of since I first heard it on 6music last weekend. Ladyflash by The Go! Team.

Flashmob - The Opera

Okay I’ll be honest. When it comes to opera… well. And as for flashmobbing… well the phrase ‘new media wanker’ is what usually springs to mind.. So you can perhaps see why something called ‘Flashmob - The Opera’, well… might not really work in my mind…

Music, sweet music

Ever sat down and listened to a song and it was just so beautiful, so wonderful, so utterly amazing, that it made you want to cry? Just cry. For no apparant reason beyond the fact that it’s just so… so… so utterly fantastic?

Bods tries to use myCokeMusic.com

I’ve read a lot about myCokeMusic.com - yet another bandwagon jumping music download site - so I thought I’d try it out. And this being my blog, I’d better tell you how it went…

No Win for Token Folk Album

Unsurprising the token folk album didn’t win the Mercury Music Prize this year…

CD Copy ‘protection’

Posted on 7 September 2003 in Music, Shopping (No comments yet - be the first!)

Record company attempts to tide the stem of illegal downloading of MP3s, will do little more than increase it.

Fopp-tastic

Fopp are a small chain of wondeful record stores who manage to persuade me to part with money far too easily…

Eliza Carthy - Anglicana

There’s always a smug satisfaction about owning an album before it gets nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

Eurovision 2003.

It’s Eurovision! For some reason…
