Fireflies has been cancelled before it even had chance to begin, and Leona’s team has finally chosen the best song as the next single from Glassheart - Lovebird! Apparently this is the radio edit, but to be quite honest it’s been a while since I listened to the original, so I’ve no idea what is different here. The fact remains, it’s a strong and catchy ballad, perfect for the season - but will radio pick up on it after the disaster of Trouble and will it find any place in the chart? I will believe it when I see it.
Pet Shop Boys are pulling out the big guns in an attempt to actually make the UK Top 40 with a single from recent album Elysium by calling in Stuart Price to craft the official radio edit for Memory Of The Future and releasing it on the very last day of the year. On paper, that looks like a great idea, but unfortunately the new remix is a disappointment and they should have just gone ahead with the original. If you haven’t heard the album yet, don’t let this put you off, because it’s a misunderstood masterpiece for sure.
