The mp3-blog snob consortium doesn’t approve of Robin Thicke’s Lost Without You, but YouTube is one with the people, it doesn’t care, it knows a perfect pop song when it sees it. So, instead of the song, a video to tease:
As an obsessed podcasting fan of Mark Ronson’s Authentic Shit radio show (knowing my own trajectories, I should burn out in a month or so), I’m excited for Ronson’s new album, soon to appear, so I can toss my teased pirate version. His record is a pile of covers, and one I’ve liked the most is the roadhouse stomp Valerie, originally by the Zutons. Wino-house covers it for Ronson’s album in her best Vaughn tribute, but the original’s a keeper.

This first appeared on my radar yesterday, but it was a good companion for work, and it made me look up several artists: Counterstream Radio, music by American composers. Thankfully there’s an iTunes link so you don’t need to keep the browser player open.

Pop pop pop pop new new new new: Fanfarlo, You Are One of the Few Outsiders Who Really Understands Us. I will have forgotten both the band and the song name by dinner.
