What? Don't talk to us right now. We're all in pieces because of...certain events. And frankly, music is all we've got keeping us going right now.
You know what it's like when you're down in the dumps. Sometimes a really sad song is what you need, sometimes it's something a bit more lively and upbeat, so you can pull yourself together. Of the selection on display here, it's tough to pick an out-and-out favourite, because it's so dependent on mood. SO, how about for one week only we pick two faves? One for the sad times and one for the happy? OK then.
So, really, I'd have to say BOB and Bruno have aced the happiness with 'Nothin' On You'. It's not as brutal as Mr Cool J's shoutython, or as all-over-the-place as Chiddy Bang. Plus that tune is summer in a can.
Meanwhile, over in Sadville...although 'Bleeding Love' is hard to argue with, and the Jonsi songs are just beautiful...Scott Matthews has to win. Because good cover versions of songs by the Smiths are hard to come by - Session 1, you are exempt from this point - and he's done a marvellous job.
Oh, and in case you thought I'd forgotten, here's the Spotify version, so that a small part of your life will be forever Olive.
PS: Now tell me your favourite/s..
