That Other Singing Aussie Soap Star Who Isn't A Minogue

It's been a while.

I bloody well can't get this out of my head. Been in there since yesterday morning.

Feckin' Antipodean soap actresses!

There appears to be a problem with embedding on this blog. I think it like it's occassional authors, it is falling apart. So instead of the video, you can download the track if you desire to do so.

Stay/Go Dilemma Solved

(This has been out for two weeks and has had twenty-eight million views).

(This has been out for twenty nine years. It has had considerably fewer than twenty-eight million views).


Edit; typical. Nothing gets posted here for 6 months and when it does the fucking Youtube embedding code thing doesn't seem to be working.

You Do Something To Me, Something Deep Inside

Hello? Is this thing on?

This blog celebrates sturdiness, booze and decline. Paul Weller has known all three at various points. That vest itself is pretty sturdy. Now I love and admire his work as much as the next man (depending I suppose on who the next man is, but still I would defend much of his output, Style Council and solo work included) but this song is utter tripe. Mystifyingly popular, one for 'the ladies', and a hit single off Stanley Road which I found generally disappointing after his opening brace of solo albums. Even worse, you can watch You Do Something To Me here on Later. Weller threatened violence against a journalist who compared this song to Eric Clapton. But the thing is, it does sound like Eric Clapton. In particular the guitar solo does do something to me, something deep inside. It turns my stomach.
