    Emmie is really a brilliant addition. I was sure it was there a few years ago but I might have just downloaded it

    All stars the thriller of our time :D

    Bump In The Night has been a NOTABLE omission for some time. And one that I can actually see performing reasonably when Halloween rolls around. Great work!

    That Emmie cover was so random but SO BRILLIANT. Very much enjoyed streaming it on Spotify this morning :disco:

    Thanks. AllSTARS has been a long time coming. Really happy on the Emmie one - love that track.

    Another biggie due next week making its streaming debut.

    The Emmie track is such a banger. Good work.

    I've been having to MAKE DO with the original in lieu of Emmie.

    Emmie has sent me on a right Spotify spiral of one of my favourite early 00 micro-genres - coffee table dance music.

    Adored this bland and reductive cover of Ordinary World at the time. (Still do TBH)



    What a terrible music video :D

    That Aurora album was really good, it’s so 2002 in all the best ways

    I was obsessed with 'Dreaming'. This must be the first time I've heard it in a cool 15 years.

    After the dance ones, and the gorge Day it rained forever, I thought Dreaming was a weird turn for what I assumed was a dance act, but the album is a quite mellow mix.

    Hear you calling loses a bit of something as a slow track, but To Die For with Marcella Detroit is so good

    I’m shocked that some of these were no longer available before.

    Anyway, talking in the Big Reunion topic, I don’t think we’ll be seeing EYC and MN8 albums anywhere soon.

    The majority of probably little interest but the headline one for today is


    CRW's Lovin' and Like A Cat and the radio edit of Mauro Picotto's Lizard (Gonna Get You) are all online.

    S Club 7's Sunshine returns to streaming


    And whilst this isn't me, Stardust's Music Sounds Better with You makes its streaming debut

    If you’re doing bigger diva albums may I request The Comfort Zone by Vanessa Williams please?

    A few this week with Universal rushing Stephen Gately's album out for Pride season









    Strangely three of the four Sarah Brightman albums are not on Spotify (but all other platforms)

    This is a mildly embarassing request but have you ever enquired about the back cats of David Sneddon and Sinead Quinn?

    I quite enjoyed the latter’s album, and I love Don’t Let Go by Sneddon. Also it always annoys me when a UK #1 isn’t on Spotify.

    Sneddon fell off Spotify and I’ve flagged with Universal.

    Smoke 2 Seven no idea. I doubt it will appear for a few months.

    @aquaplex One to add to your list (I hope you get paid for this) - Reach by Judy Cheeks is AWOL.

    Someone should break it to her gently. Death by gay lifestyle syndrome can come as a huge shock.

    Këllē was thrilled that the solo single by Kęll€ Bryan is now online!

    Afraid it’s now looking like a fairly lean period in pop activism now. Only a couple of releases upcoming and lots of unanswered emails... 26 chasers sent on Monday - 3 replies!

    How good are Island records at getting back? The Natalie Imbruglia album “Come to life” is sadly missing :(
