I’ve always said that this place would be far poorer if it wasn’t for the views, thoughts, contributions and postings from others,  Here’s some evidence from back on 19 February 2014:-

In recent weeks, in response to what has been posted on T(n)VV, a number of readers have made suggestions about tracking down some songs. Here’s what I mean:-

“Heard CHVRCHES version of Bela Lugosi?” : from London Lee on 5 February

“On the other hand, Lightspeed Champion has made some pretty good records. I loved ‘Madame Van Damme’.” : from The Robster on 31 January

“Last year, Kylie sang vocals on a track called ‘Whistle’ by Icelandic electronica meisters Múm. It’s probably my favourite thing she’s ever done, even topping that Nick Cave duet and her Dr Who appearance. I very strongly urge you to check it out.” : from The Robster on 29 January

“The Flaming Lips have a pretty good version of I Can’t Get You Out of My Head” : from Brian on 29 January

“Frank Sidebottom did a tremendous Kylie tribute track which is worth tracking down” : from Charity Chic on 29 January

So as The Chemical Brothers once chanted on a hit single of theirs (but, as pointed out to me by acid ted, who is my oldest non-Glasgow based blogging mate, it was originally on “The Roof is on Fire” by Rock Master Scott & the Dynamic Three)……..

……HERE WE GO!!!!!

mp3 : CHVRCHES – Bela Lugosi’s Dead
mp3 : Lightspeed Champion – Madame Van Damme
mp3 : Mum – Whistle
mp3 : Flaming Lips – I Can’t Get You Out Of My Head
mp3 : Frank Sidebottom – I Should Be So Lucky

Thanks again everyone for keeping the faith this week (he types optimistically before seeing the responses these past few days).  I’m hoping normal service will be resumed next week.



  1. I was hoping you’d come full circle and finish with Kylie’s version of Bela Lugosi’s Dead… if only it existed! I like The Flaming Lips, but their cover of Kylie is pretty pants. Frank Sidebottom’s version, on the other hand, genius. Love the Lightspeed Champion and mum tracks.
