You'd think the fact they weren't headlining would be a tip off

Dappy is a far bigger star than Little Mix. Dappy is the Bowie of our times.

Who in the blue hell is Cascada, I can't even remember. This is like when seeing someone from school and they're moderately excited to see you and you've not got a strawberry floating clue who they are.

I have literally no recollection of her whatsoever.

The songs all sound very Eurovision.

Saw an ad for a Ministry of Sound Happy Hardcover compilation the other day, my strawberry floating god who actually still listens to that gooseberry fool in 2019.

I suppose it'd be useful for the US government to torture the inmates in Guantanamo Bay with.

Yes. Of course we will.

I mean...I still listen to Len - Steal My Sunshine regularly and it's just a random hit from the millenium. It's not that great, but I strawberry floating love it as it takes me back to a time and a place. People will do that with Adele, Gaga, and Sheeren that's for sure.

So sorry guys, but for the rest of your life you will hear 'the shape of you.'

May as well continue with that global warming to make the pain stop.

It's surprising how fast EDM went to gooseberry fool in the mid-00s, the golden age seems to be the mid-late 90s with the likes of Moby, Daft Punk, The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers Underworld and Chicane.

The only current DJ that's doing anything good is Deadmau5, the likes of Aviici, Calvin Harris and Skrillex are Alice Deejay levels of trash.

I don't even like Deadmau5.

The only recent ish EDM (I hate that term) act I've heard that I like is Kavinsky but even then most of his output sticks to the same Synthwave sounds and just gets boring after a while, there's just no real variety to it aside from the one track with someone rapping over it which doesn't work.



There's something about this track that always makes me skip it.

Love Len - Steal My Sunshine, it's on my Spotify playlist, but to be fair the only time I hear it outside of there now is on Absolute Radio.

It's strange which songs stay remembered and which don't. Is it due to chart success, or is there more to it such as a catchy melody.

If you buy any of Len's albums the line notes talk about how pissed they've gotten between albums.

A Catchy melody applies to these songs from the 90's & early 00's also they still sound good even now imo.
Breakfast at Tiffany's by Deep Blue Something
Kiss Me - Sixpence None The Richer
Chumbawamba “Tubthumping
Lovefool - The Cardigans
OMC - How Bizarre
Coolio, Gangsters Paradise
2pac feat Dr.Dre - California Love
Dr. Dre - Still D.R.E. ft. Snoop Dogg

This is something i've also noticed, a lot of late 90's/early 00's stuff still sounds really good and hasn't aged much at all.

Some of my favourites...

Craig David: Rewind/7 Days
Crazy Town: Butterfly
All Saints: Pure Shores
Stardust: Music sounds better with you
Modjo: Lady (hear me tonight)
Avril Lavigne: Sk8er Boi
Justin Timberlake: Cry Me a River

...and not forgetting this all time classic which is probably one of the finest pop songs ever created...

The first one of those still sounds good because the main riff is from RHCP's Pretty little ditty, which is superb.



The second one is heavily rumoured (possibly confirmed) to be a Daft Punk side project.

That explains why the guitar riffs sounded similar to Californication (which i also really like, the video was fun too though it was very much of it's time).

There are a number of stories from Canadian music ITKs to suggest that LEN are a collection of wankers. Which would be a shame if true, because Steal My Sunshine is an absolutely banging song.
