Only just finished watching Claire Richards (former Steps front-woman) sing her new single These Wings on the TV, I’m just going to say now that even though I’ve never been a fan of hers I have to confess I liked her tonight. These Wings is quite a heartfelt song that definitely has that drive to it as it gathers momentum not long after it starts. Wings is one of those type of songs where it carries emotions and has that intimate feel to it. As a singer all I’ll say is that, despite not being a fan, she is quite talented and can hit the high notes required for such a track. On the whole it had a stage musical feel and added a bit more energy and power performance, also it was nice to see Claire perform with a collective of musical individuals who weren’t steps.
Also on the sofa providing banter and gossip were former James Bond actress Judi Dench (the 90’s M), Cuckoo star Greg Davies, Kenneth Branagh and boxer Anthony Joshua
Musical legend Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus have got together and have made a new song and, Nothing Breaks You Like a Heart, is the result. As an open fan of Ronson but not quite of Cyrus I just found myself liking this song within the first few seconds. Miley’s voice fits the song perfectly and adds just that little bit extra to the music though there is a slight southern-state twang to her voice. Oddly enough it actually works really well. As for Ronson, what can you honestly say about him that’s not already been said? the guy’s a musical genius who just will not let you down. The chorus itself ‘Nothing, nothing, nothing gon’ save us now’ is both catchy and addictive. I’ve a feeling this’ll quickly grow on me. The song is off the album Late Night Feelings.
TV chief Jamie Oliver, actress/singer Hailee Steinfield, actor Matthew McConaughy and wrestler-turned actor John Cena were also on the sofa adding banter and discussing upcoming projects.
Just finished watching Take That performing one of their hit singles Greatest Day and I have to say that even though I was never a fan, both in their 90’s heyday or now, I thoroughly enjoy listening to it. Gary Barlow just lives and breathes front-man material as he just possess an incredible voice as he sang with Mark Owen and Howard Donald. They’re great to, I’m not denying it. I think that for any fan of the band either from their original heyday and/or since their comeback you simply cannot deny that they’re like a good wine; they just seem to get better with age. Also, Greatest Day is just another example of Gary’s talent not only as a singer but also as a song-writer.
