Another Way To Die – The New 007 Theme

Posted in Music Downloads, music news, Single Reviews with tags , , , , , , on September 22, 2008 by kv

Alicia Keys and The White Stripes’ frontman Jack White have teamed up to come up with the first ever duet in the theme songs of James Bond films. The track is titled “Another Way To Die” which premiered its first ever radio airplay on Jo Whiley’s BBC Radio 1 slot in the UK. 

The single will be available in a 7″ vinyl CD to become available on US stands on September 30, 2008 while looking at an October 6 release in the UK.

Sources say that the song is a bit quite a mess. The song has garnered mixed reviews from listeners according to NewsBeat. It is not comparable to past bond hits such as Diamonds are Forever but is a bit resemblance to the effort done by Chris Cornell in Casino Royale. Well, it’s up for you to decide wether its a mess or not.

 

James Morrison – You Make It Real

Posted in Music Downloads, Single Reviews with tags , , , , , on September 19, 2008 by kv

Last August 10, 2008 I posted the news that James Morrison is releasing a single off from his sophomore album titled “Songs For You, Truths For Me”. His single “You Make It Real” is going to be released September 22, 2008.

“You Make It Real” is still a proof that James is still in his element. Strings, soulful vocals and of course, appreciative lyrics. It isn’t quite a bad song but not the same as the ones he did in the past like “You Give Me Something” and “Wonderful World”. It’s a husky, squeaky clean ballad that reminds every guy how wonderful to have a girlfriend or somesort. The disappointment of the song is that it lacks the big chorus that just storms every radio station and the girls fall in love with.  But still, let’s wait for his sophomore album when it hit stores a week after the release of Morrison’s 6th single.

Nonetheless, James is still in his distinct element that made us fall in love with his first releases. For some, it still maybe just some sleepy stuff that you want to hear to make you sleep. But he ain’t going to sell like 2 million albums if all of the buyers want is some sleepy shit.

Christina is just keeps on gettin’ better

Posted in Music Downloads, Single Reviews with tags , , , , , , on September 10, 2008 by kv

For those who watched the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards last September 7, 2008, you may notice that Christina’s new song is just addictive as it may seem to be. Well, she gave an astonishing performance on last Sunday’s VMA’s with her spankin’ brand new song titled “KEEPS GETTIN’ BETTER”. The song was actually her first single off from her much anticipated GREATEST HITS album to be released sometime in 2009. 

KEEPS GETTIN’ BETTER is a sign that Christina is back on track and will just keep getting better into giving her fans and us the music that we want to hear. The track is produced by Linda Perry and is a sassy-electro pop song with an infectious chorus is another sure-fire hit for Christina. The only problem is it may not be a #1 song kinda tune that we have heard from in the past. 

The song also has some serious catchy lyrics with her singing “Sometimes, I’m a super BITCH” which is really funny when you first hear it but trust me, this song is a proof that Christina’s comeback will be fabulous and much awaited with aplomb. 

If you haven’t heard it yet, the song was leaked last September 5 and was available for download on iTunes in Australia and Canada yesterday, September 9. The song will be released on US mainstream radio starting September 22, 2008 according to Billboard magazine.

The problem with “Girls”

Posted in Music Downloads, music news, Single Reviews with tags , , , , , , , on August 25, 2008 by kv

Have you heard the newest single by the Sugababes? Well, it premiered on a UK radio station last August and fortunately I saw it on the net and have given it a first listen. I actually thought it wasn’t as clever or good as the previous singles released by this 3-piece British girl band. I mean, they manage to get a #1 for “About You Now” but unfavourable success followed from “Change” and “Denial” which only charted in the top 20 or below.

David Archuleta has a CRUSH!

Posted in Music Downloads, Single Reviews with tags , , , , , , on August 4, 2008 by kv

 

I for once thought that David Archuleta will win American Idol season 7. I think this way because I know the massive fans supporting Archie. I somehow didn’t like some of Archie’s performances to be honest. But I think I’m going to be stand corrected because of his brand new song titled “CRUSH”.
