What's the worst word in the English language? It's not what you think. It's not four letters, but nine - "malignant". One month shy of her 36th birthday, my wife Carolina handed me the results of her biopsy, which indicated advanced breast cancer. I felt like the earth was swallowing me up. It was October 11, 2011.

The idea of living a hermetic subterranean life has its appeal. What if an enforced existence in a bunker became a positive thing - it's a large leap of the imagination but then that is the point of art - what if a post-nuclear dystopia became a post-nuclear utopia.

Tame Impala's 2012 debut album, Lonerism, was a modernized psychedelic infusion of experimental prog rock and 60's emulation. Elephant captured their unique sound and remains the Australian band's biggest hit. The band has now returned with their second studio album, Currents.

Best song? Couldn't say, that would be cheating. Although I will admit, Pink Glove has a certain bite and drive that is irresistible, and who could resist that incendiary, bitchy, gleefully observant chorus?*

Being partly responsible for one of the UK's biggest dance music movements, Benga is one of the forefathers of Dubstep. Creating earth rattling bass lines and heart stopping drops, he leaves a trail of destruction not only with the music he creates but the crowds he plays to.

Turn Off Your Mind and Float Upstream - 50 Years on From 'Love Me Do' Can We Listen to The Beatles Objectively?

Danny Myers | Posted 04.12.2012 | UK Entertainment
Danny Myers

If you can clear your head, you'll hear that 'Love Me Do' is tight and tidy enough but unremarkable, maybe even a little dull. Of course, it's now associated with four sweating Beatles thrashing away in The Cavern, unaware of what was about to hit them. As such 'Love Me Do' is a great 'once upon a time' but it is not a great song.
