Everything Changes by Peggy Seeger 22/12/2015
It’s funny how your appreciation of a piece of art changes once you know more about the artist’s inspiration for that piece. I watched a wonderful BBC Four documentary about Delius last night. I knew very little about Delius before the programme, and although I had heard a few of his pieces and liked them, I wasn’t familiar with a lot of his repertoire. The documentary made me think that I should certainly seek out more of his work: he was a fascinating character (if not always a likeable person), and his music was rather avant-garde for the time. 7/7/2012

I’ve loved this song for a while (particularly for Eliza Carthy’s wonderful voice, but also for the 1950s ‘spacey’ sounds), but this compilation of women in sci-fi TV shows and films makes it even better. You can have fun spotting the clips, too. I was glad to see some Blake 7 clips as well as Farscape. 12/6/2011

I am very fond of The Wurzels. They have been going forever, and they seem to have an absolute blast when they perform. Bonus points to them for deflating any pretentious hipsterism by appending a series of “Ooo Arrr Ooo Arrr’s” on the end of the Kaiser Chief’s “Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby” chorus. 27/6/2010

As with a lot of Morrissey’s latter-day solo material, its target market appears to be people who heard the Smiths and thought: if only this stuff was less beautifully nuanced and original, a bit more ungainly and predictable, then we’d really be getting somewhere. 11/3/2009
Had a sudden hankering to hear this again, you know how it is. 1/3/2009
I detest the music of Britney Spears — particularly this song, because Mr. Bsag knows that he can irritate me by singing the hook in a falsetto register, over and over again… 28/1/2009
