Potentialy Predictable Future
2012 is in full swing now, what's gonna happen this year:
Adele's gonna be around for a long time yet, Emeli Sande's a hot tip for this year (see below) she's been flirting with some concrete people fixed firmly in the recording scene. The Soul/Bashment-style-Rap sound created by Eminem 10years ago has blossomed and is flowering, Capital Radio's Johny Vaughan has been turfed out of the morning seat to be replaced by Dave Berry - smart move Capital, Vaughany's a very good DJ but he's got a Club DJ sound to his voice. Replacing The Great Tarrant was always gonna be hard, Berry does it better.
Little Mix ......... where do we go from here... Little Mix are getting bad reviews everywhere, they're not the best singers, and yet another X Factor winner badly covering a tune from the past was not the greatest first step. If our paths happen to cross we should talk, we could work very well.
There's not enough Guitar Bands around, that's what's wanted a band to produce future classics. Jimi Hendrix, Guns'n'Roses, Nirvana, REM, errr... The Darkness (?) They are the sorta sound that's needed in the charts, wouldn't a tune titled Coldplay Meets Clapton sound brilliant? 12:01:12
Maroon 5's latest offering (released last September) is going to be hard for them to follow up, it's got to be their biggest tune yet. The ingredients are all there: easy to remember catchy lyrics about a character everyone knows, the video manages to keep your attention, dancy beat that even your grandma can enjoy (she'll remember Mick too), an overall good song. Mick Jagger was blessed with what can ensure guaranteed achievement: self confidence. 13:01:12
Well summer 2011 has been and long gone now, there's been lots of great tunes to remember it by though. This page needs a good rinse-down for Christmas, that's the next Big Event worldwide. 2012 will be swamped with Olympomania, everyone trying to take a slice of the Olympic Pie so expect to hear some predictably awful Cheese-Choons in the Spring.
The greatest tune of 2011? There's still time for something else but my opinion so far is Mr Saxobeat, that'll be fillin' floors for a few years yet. 09:11:11
