I don't give a stuff about the charts these days. For fear of sounding old I have to say I can't bear all these manufactured bands like JLS and the awful cheesy, pseudo dance tunes that get released (not to be confused with GOOD dance music, of course!). The majority of the music that's in the charts today makes me feel sick. There are some great bands out there but gone are the days when I worked in a record company and knew exactly what was going on in the music business, I have no clue anymore. However, I do still know what's good and what's not.
I have always liked Adele very much as a person and an artist, she has great natural talent. I blogged about her a while back HERE.
I first listened to this track properly yesterday after reading about it on Jeanne's lovely blog and immediately bought the album 21 on iTunes. Adele's new album is produced by Paul Epworth (Florence and the Machine, Friendly Fires, Plan B and Primal Scream). It's great! I wish I'd signed it! According to the midweek figures it will be number one on Sunday, hopefully knocking off some of the absolute dirge that's out there.
Wouldn't it be good to have someone who can actually write their own songs, sing without a vocoder AND has some musical taste in the charts? I hope so. Or I really will have to go away and feel like an old dear!
I'm off to try and think of seven things I haven't already shared about myself for the Stylish Blogger Award (I don't want to bore everyone rigid!)
