It’s over to Adele

They both sell shed loads of albums but when it comes to naming those albums, Adele and Ed Sheeran lack a certain amount of creativity.

Adele names her albums after the age she was when the album was recorded, 19, 21, 25. Ed names his after mathematical symbols and not even the most interesting ones, x, +, now ÷.

I suppose, if nothing else, if you combine their work you almost get a maths question.

                                              19 x 21 + 25 ÷ (over to Adele)

Songs of irritants

Hola. Hope you are well.

I’ve decided it’s time to out myself. It’s something I’ve known for many years but I have never shared it with the world, until now.

I quite like U2!

I know it’s not fashionable to say this but I feel like I have to admit it. I’ve got many of their albums, I’ve seen them live and I think they have a great back catalogue of songs. I even like their more recent songs, such as Ordinary Love from the Mandela film Long Walk to Freedom.

But today their name is mud (not the band Mud) and all because they decided to give their latest album Songs of Innocence away for FREE, to all those with an iTunes account.

You’d think free would be considered a good thing, yet people complained it was invasive, with only 5% of the iTunes customers choosing to download the album. It seems to me that these people are being a little precious.

I don’t have an iTunes account (I thought I did but now I’m not too sure) but if Bono had come round and put a free copy of the album in my letter box (not a euphemism) I wouldn’t have complained. I would have listened to it, maybe listened a few more times, lent it to friends and then kept it in my record collection. I certainly wouldn’t have been using words like invasive.

Perhaps the more important issue is why a band as big as U2 are having to use gimmicks like this to get their music out.

Til next time, stay safe!

A Bumblebee(e) off

Hola. Hope you are well.

Kasabian‘s new album is called 48:13 after the length of the album, 48mins 13secs. For consistency I think they should have named every track on the album in this way. So instead of first single off the album being Eez-eh, it should have been called 3:00.

Talking of tracks on the new album, Kasabian have a song called Bumblebeee (4:01) [watch here] as does my friend’s band, Stage Door Guy [listen here]. This makes me think they should have a Bumblebee(e) off.

Feel free to listen to both songs and decide which you prefer.

Til next time, stay safe!
