That's gonna mean reduced hard copy sales. Songs of Innocence came into the album chart today at no 6 though. The songs as played on Graham Norton sounded much better than the album.

I watched her on that as well. I thought the songs lacked any character.

Apocalypse Now along with Platoon are probably the best Vietnam movies. I don't think The Deer hunter is as good.

Dr. Strangelove is an excellent cold war movie satire. And Schindler's List would...

Might make a good video though if she did?

Gaga is an intelligent woman as well. I love someone who causes so much disruption and polarises opinion. Sign of a great artist.

It's interesting but the IFA ( the original Governing Body) actually represented all of Ireland from 1880 to 1950 and the FAI from 1936 to 1946. So there has been 'united' teams in the past. One of...

You could add Lord of War, Joe, 8mm, The Weather Man to that list. There are others where Cage was good but the movie was disappointing. There is no comparison with Steve Seagal, there is a range of...

If 'In the Ghetto' is cheesy, that's probably more to do with Mac Davis, who wrote the song than Elvis who performed it very well. 'In the Ghetto' is part of the sessions that also produced...

Yes the song is about body image but it is not about an athletic body image. It was a silly song choice for one of the few acts I thought worth listening to on XF.

Not quite sure about life but you are right about the song and the singer.
You kind of miss the point if you dislocate the singer from the song.
Can we blame XF for this?

I think it would help if the two songs hadn't been combined. They should just have done Jailhouse Rock for example. It's become karaoke but it is also part of the roots of modern pop. If the band...
