Nobody listens to the lyrics any more, do they? London Calling being used to encourage people to visit the English capital? Presumably we'll use Ballboy's I Hate Scotland during the commonwealth games?
There was a list made of the sexiest songs of all time. Needless to say, it's weird. Oh, and we've spared no budget to bring you the Will.I.Am random lyric generator.
Releases shown: R Kelly - Share My Love (out now); The Offspring - Days Go By (out now); Will.I.Am - This is Love (out now); Metric - Youth Without Youth (from Synthetica, out now); Birdhead - Tourist (out now)
*Musical note: the Scotch Snap technically consists of a stressed (ie on the beat) sixteenth note, or semiquaver, followed by a dotted eighth note or quaver. Usually dotted rythms have the longer note first; it is that reversal of expectation that makes the snap so distinctive. It is a key rhythmic signature of Scottish traditional music.
