In lieu of anything particularly good being released this week, here is Willy Moon's 'I Wanna Be Your Man', which isn't being released this week. It's quite the début. And it's probably best for you to just watch it, as someone presumably says, 'straight off the bat', rather than having read a hackneyed description of it beforehand. Done? Amazing? Amazing. At the moment it doesn't actually have a defined release date (although it was originally scheduled for September, then the end of October) but given that Moon is scheduled to feature in a variety of self perpetuating Tips For 2011 lists, it would be a good idea to get this 'buzz single' out sooner rather than later ie hopefully probably maybe this month.
JLS - 'Take A Chance On Me' Which will probably be Number One, off the back of an X Factor performance.
Fron Male Voice Choir - 'Granddad' A brilliant cover choice because a) obviously no-one doesn't love this song and b) it's not like the Fron Male Voice Choir's granddad's are all dead anyway. Ho hum.
13th November: A bit boring, let's gloss over this one.
20th November: Emeli Sandé - 'Daddy'
Well this is a packed week - Adele's 'Rumour Has It', Alexandra Stan's 'Get Back (ASAP)', Britney Spears' 'Criminal' (if only nominally), Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull's 'I Like How It Feels' (amazing), Kelly Rowland's 'Down For Whatever', Lady Gaga's 'Marry The Night', Olly Murs' 'Dance With Me Zzz', Will Young's 'Come On', the X Factor Finalists' harrowing 'Wishing On A Star' and many, many more. Hey, 'The Record Industry' - here's an idea: how about releasing more songs at other points in the year, rather than all in the same week?
27th November: Rebecca Ferguson - 'Nothing's Real But Love'
Rebecca, the people's Duffy, is the last X Factor contestant from last year to get round to releasing some music this year (at least if we're discounting Wagner's planned Christmas offering, 'I'd Do Anything For Loaf (But I Won't Do That)'). And was it worth waiting for? Well, yes and no. It's good but it needs another version with a donk on it. Hopefully the single itself will provide a remix by one or more of the following: Hex Hector, Almighty, Moto Blanco, 7th Heaven, Jason Nevins, Cahill, Wideboys, Freemasons, Hi-Bias, Loverush UK!, Club Junkies. And that is the In At Number 40 review.
Jason Derulo - Fight For You The man that epitomises lamazing has produced yet another corker. Following on from his previous efforts in stealing from Robin S, Harry Belafonte and Imogen Heap, 'Fight For You''s hook line is lifted right from Toto's 'Africa'. Congratulations, Jason.
Patrick Wolf - 'Brumalia EP' This could be interesting.
And there we have it.
