    Mr Brightside is the most British song that isn’t actually written/sung by a British artist. You got to any house party in England with 20 something year old lads, if enough of the lads have had a bit to drink and the song comes on, the shirts are coming off and we’re jumping to the beat and belting it to the night. Enough people know the lyrics by heart that we jokingly call it our proper national anthem. 🤣👌🏼

    80s mega producer Trevor Horn does concerts most summers with a huge band. He often does Kiss From a Rose and versions of most of the other songs he co-wrote or produced with my main man, Matt Cardle, doing the vocals. Although Seal does perform with him occasionally, Matt has become Trevor's go to vocalist because he can sing anything.

    I remember hearing Kiss from a Rose before it was in Batman Forever. I was 2 1/2 when it first came out. But I definitely remember hearing it in 1995. I used to be in the car a lot growing up and I remember my mom listening to a top 40 radio station. I think Lizzo is highly overrated though.

    That’s so true a floppy song that is thrown into a movie soundtrack makes it popular because Twilights song Full Moon was one of my favorite songs that a band had made before the movie was ever made. I originally found Black Ghosts CD in Amoeba, a really popular music store in Los Angeles. Black Ghosts were not popular at all and the CD that had Full Moon had two singles on the CD, I love that other song too. It’s too bad they aren’t really making music anymore.

"You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain Baby, to me, you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny" If you read between the lines it just seems a little fishy.
