I’m really digging Groove Armada’s indie rock take on Madonna’s classic 80s love song. WHich version do you like best!?

I just got a new dance cover of Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’, and was surprised that’s it’s not that bad. It also made me think of the version ex-Sugababe Mutya Buena did for the big Radio 1 anniversary cd last year, which brought in some pop and gospel-lite flourishes. The somber folky tune stands up to varied interpretations, so I’m sharing what I got with you! What do YOU think!?

Tracy Chapman – Fast Car
Mutya Buena – Fast Car
After 6 ft Angela Dennis – Fast Car (Radio Edit)

I try to space out talking about the same thing over and over again. However one of my new favorite musicians, Jay Brannan has posted a cute new video of his travels in UK to promote his excellent album, ‘goddamned’. Since I was just in London a few weeks ago, this video makes me all giddy. Plus he’s cute & funny. Maybe I’ll make him my imaginary boyfriend.

Favorite Duets!!
Kylie Minogue & Ben Lee – The Reflex
Kylie Minogue & Just Jack – I Talk Too Much
Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams – Kids

I’m seeing Kylie Minogue live in concert tonight for the first time EVER at the O2 Arena in London. It’s the cherry on my best vacation ever. To celebrate (and to avert your jealousy) I’m sharing 3 tracks a day, each with a theme. Enjoy! Can’t wait to tell you all about the show… after the tour is over!

Favorite Live Tracks!
Kylie Minogue – Butterfly (Live in Sydney)
Kylie Minogue – Shocked (Live In Manchester)
Kylie Minogue – Breathe/J’taime (Live in London)

I leave for London tonight with my best friend in the whole world!! I’m beyond stoked!! Can’t promise I’ll be very present on the blog until August, but I might get some pre-blogging in. Have fun everybody! Don’t be too jealous!

Usually solo material by an ex-Destiny’s Child is cause for a little ridicule. Especially when we’re talking Michelle Williams, the red-headed stepchild of the group. Her new single is pretty damn cute though. Check it out!
