  1. Um, I was trying to think of something nice to say but I hate all of these except The Gossip. If I had to choose a song of the winter (down here in the southern hemisphere) I would probably go for BEP’s “I Gotta Feeling”. I hear it every time I leave the house!

    • I’m a bit burned out on BEP, but fortunately my list doesn’t have to follow my local radio station overplaying songs every 2 hours.

  2. Hmm, well i think Jordin honestly could’ve done better and I do like Mini Viva but i’m sadly not sure they will become household names 😦 The Gossip though – what an incredible album! The only reason they are not on my singles chart is because i can’t pull one track out without listening to the whole thing!

    • I’m sure the Gossip appreciate your full support in any way you can provide it. And I agree on Mini Viva, but it’s still fun.

  3. I love “S.O.S.”!! I just wish her album was more of that instead of the down-tempo numbers. This should do for Jordin’s career what “S.O.S.” did for Rihanna.

    Oh, I had no idea Mini Viva was Xenomania. Interesting!

    • Fingers crossed on this breaking the new CD wide open. If this is as big as you say it may be, I think it would be safe to say that the next record will be a bit more upbeat.

  4. Yay — someone who gets how I feel about “SOS”. I really thought it was a bad idea on paper, and yet I keep listening to it…

    I need to listen to the full Gossip album. I adore the first single…

    • You definitely need to check out the full CD. It’s one of the funkiest rock records I’ve heard in a LONG time.

    • Yup yup! They may be a flash in the pan, but I am enjoying them the same way others are enjoying Dolly Rockers.

  5. I want to say that I am happy for you that you are seeing the Gossip, but I am too bitter that I am not to do so. HMPF! 😉

  6. I heard the Mini Viva on Radio 2 (UK) yesterday, it sounded great, love the video too, that’s the pop that should be in the chart now instead of the same songs for months,

    love Gossip too,


    • No argument on MV, David. There’s no chance they will get airplay over here, so enjoy it. I’ll settle for hearing it on Radio 1 if it ever gets added. And give Jordin a chance…I think it will grow on you.
