I love a bit of Bruno Mars
There are two dreaded words that pretty much decide everything you ever watch on British television. And no, those words aren't "Jeremy Clarkson". They are words you may not have heard before, but words that make every TV producer, commissioner, presenter and advertiser shake with fear. I'm talking about "The Overnights"
The overnights answer all the questions that can sometimes leave us baffled about television. Why did that show I love get axed? Why does that show I hate keep returning? How does Piers Morgan keep getting work?
I like a bit of country. I'll tell you what, exploring the back catalogue of Kenny Rogers is not a bad idea to do. He's got some cracking tunes there
Kanye West has become a slight figure of fun in recent years but "Through the Wire" and "Jesus Walks" are two sensational tracks, absolutely brilliant tracks.
