Chariots of Fire - BWO: Commercial and radio friendly pop from the one and only Alexander Bard. The video for this is now on "The Box".
All I Want Is You/Absolutely No Decorum - The Ark: From what is already a contender from my album of the year. They have produced yet another effortless collection of strong songs, and these are two of them.
Tokyo - Danny Saucedo: Swedish "Idol" finalist proving that his 15 minutes aren’t up yet.
Shine - Booty Luv: Will not have the longevity of "Boogie 2 Nite" but this is a fine dance effort, cheekily sampling Chic along the way.
Valerie - Mark Ronson featuring Amy Winehouse: From an astonishing collection of cover versions, this one sees Amy jazzily stomping all over the Zutons’ hit. Say "Yes, yes, yes" to this.
Bones - The Killers: Took me a long time to get into this previous single but now I rather like it a lot.
Poison Arrow - ABC: One of those random play songs on my MP3 player which keeps coming back again!
Cupid’s Chokehold - Gym Class Heroes: Utterly daft sampling of Supertramp’s "Breakfast in America" which gets away with it.
Today/Throw It All Away - Zero 7: Jose Gonzalez and Sia work their magic.
Kiss The Bride - Christophe Willem: Not the Elton John song, but Nouvelle Star’s king of the geeks with a new English-language song from his excellent debut CD.
Makes Me Wonder - Maroon 5: Very classy return to form, even if it does include an f-word; the video is nice and Adam looks very good in a suit indeed.
