Last Minute Xmas Shopping List
Some people just don't know how to plan properly, do they? We all know when Christmas is, it's always in the same place in the calender. So how come there's all these late entries into the race for the Christmas No.1? Could it be they're relying on first-week sales alone to get their song up to the top spot? It COULD? Well! How very cynical we all are...
Anyway, according to sources close to the music biz, there's a grand total of seven new songs in the shops as of today, and an extra one joining them as of Wednesday...
THE 'MAGNIFICENT' SEVEN...
|MARY J BLIGE||'MJB DA MVP'||Website|
|GIRLS ALOUD||'I THINK WE'RE ALONE NOW'||Review||Website|
|McFLY||'SORRY'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH'||Review||Website|
|JAMES MORRISON||'THE PIECES DON'T FIT ANYMORE'||Review||Website|
|QUEEN VS THE MIAMI PROJECT||'ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST'||Review||Website|
|RAZORLIGHT||'BEFORE I FALL TO PIECES'||Review||Website|
And the eighth is the offical CD release of 'A Moment Like This' by Leona (she won the X-Factor, donchaknow). Which gives her officially even LESS time to make her way up the charts than everyone else. Bet she hasn't even STARTED her Christmas card list either...
And she's not even the worst. This lot haven't even bothered to get their records in the shops before Christmas Day. That's just plain tardy, in my book.
