The Best Music to Lose Your Job To

Grant Feller | Posted 13.03.2014 | UK Entertainment

A year ago I lost my job, felt sorry for myself for 48 hours and then got back on the bus and started my own phenomenally successful (almost) media consultancy. My latest playlist selection was, I thought, entirely random. But today I realised it's not - it's all about me. Or at least me and work - losing, winning and everything in between.

'Born to Be Wild': The Golden Age of American Rock - Welcome to the Jungle

James Hale | Posted 22.03.2014 | UK Entertainment
James Hale

By the 1980's, mainstream American rock music had moved far away from the protest and revolution of the 1960s and was more concerned with sex, drugs, partying and having a good time. All the time. Hey it was the 80s so it was allowed, apparently.

He speaks rapidly, words tripping over each other to get out, but when Alex Lipinski sings it's with the poise of someone naturally immersed in the songwriting medium.

Bruce Springsteen's new album's title may be steeped in promise, but a sizeable portion of his devoted fanbase have considerably lower expectations for High Hopes.

'High Hopes' for Springsteen's Future

For all those who think Bruce Springsteen is "Dad music that sucks" (a statement that is probably based solely on Dancing in the Dark and Born in the USA), I ask you to search beyond the only two songs you're likely to hear on the radio, because that's when you find the really good stuff. Delve into your parent's record collection and pull out something by Springsteen, because the chances are, you've still got time to make it to a pretty incredible show.

Rhythm Nation

On this day in 1989, Janet Jackson started a four-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with Rhythm Nation 1814, only one of three albums to produce seven top ten US singles (the other two being Thriller by Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen's Born In The USA).

In the age of instant streaming and catch-up TV, who on earth bothers with box sets anymore? Clunky, brick-like things destined to take up far too much room on your sagging shelves. Er, well, the answer seems to be - a lot of people.

First Aid on the Front Line

Seeing for myself the good work that St John volunteers perform day in, day out was exceptionally rewarding. Their presence is reassuring, and you know that if you attend a concert, rugby match or outdoor event, that they will be there to provide a high standard of care.

Elton John Joins Pussy Riot: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Live Aid

Neil Durkin | Posted 21.09.2013 | UK Entertainment
Neil Durkin

The new 100-strong musicians' letter on behalf of the still-jailed Pussy Riot members Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova is a wholly good thing. And it is. It's not about whether I'd listen to music from this enormous body of artists (though I would in a few cases), but ... well, you know what I'm saying. It ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it.

Springsteen and Us

Springsteen's role as the last great bastion of true, no frills rock is doubtless a root cause of his iconic status, but there's so much more to it than that.

Why Bruce Springsteen Will Always Be Cooler Than Facebook

Who wants my precious spare ticket to this weekend's Bruce Springsteen gig? Really. Because I desperately need someone to tell me I'm not a boring, uncool, faded jeans, slightly-paunched, greying, 40-something rocker whose refusal to grow up is no longer charming but worrying.

Sport will inevitably be the true home of the Olympic stadium. But while contracts are negotiated and decisions made, live music needs a change in London from the unsatisfactory venue of Hyde Park.

The Best Albums of 2012 30-21

Joel Durston | Posted 18.02.2013 | UK Entertainment
Joel Durston

At the ripe old age of 63, Bruce Springsteen returned (if indeed he ever left) for his seventeenth album this year, a massive Hyde Park show, and a lot of campaigning for Obama's re-election. For a man who almost self-parodically sings of the hard-working heart and soul of America, he could certainly never be accused of not practising what he preaches.
