Looks like the summer of the Ig to me and franly I am surprised that she is doing this well, though not shocked. Both “Fancy” and “Problems” are as good as modern dance mash Hip Hop gets and look as though they are settling in for a long stay at the top. As long as “Blurred Lines”? Maybe not though…

Can I pick em? No, not at all. I could’ve sworn both Coldplay and Michael Jackson were gonna bomb and bomb big and they both hit the charts in the first week. Avicii produced by the Coldplay song, I just assumed it was Eno!

Billboard doesn’t lie or at least money doesn’t lie and so even if your taste doesn’t coincide with the members of the zeitgeists, well here you have what the zeitgist is really like. Or was in 2013. I admire a lot of these names. And am happy to concede Timberlake as the artist of the year if not Katy Perry as best female artist.

That run from DJ Snake to the end is the best I’ve seen in months and months and months, all of it is good and Timberlake’s “Not A Bad Thing” is one of his greatest moments ever. As pure and as perfect a pop song as you will ever hear plus? It isn’t connected at the hips with a dog as it is on the album

They both entered the public conscious around the same time and both have distinct personalities while remaining essentially unknown qualities. You never get to the bottom of these guys, all the charm is a layer of finesse to help maintain complete privacy, every action a modulated concern of career and counter career, every event a non event, every story a scolded subtraction.

Justin Timberlake and the Tennessee Kids take to the stage with Pusher Love Girl. The backdrop is white with shadows of JT and the band with streaming white lights – simple, sexy. What I love about Justin Timberlake – he is a contemporary artist with ‘real’ sophistication

It’s 2:30A and I am wide awake. What I really want to do is go back to sleep but I know myself too well. I’ll lay here for an hour or so and not fall asleep until about 4A which typically would be okay but I really want to go to the gym and Spin at 5:30A

Early Days – Paul McCartney – The strange thing about this terrific song is how old Paul sounds, he sounds every inch his 70 plus years and the effect, as he reaches for a note out of his range, is less elegiac and more wearied – A

I am losing interest fast in Justin, not entirely, but really only one great song. Haim are a real bore and Alter Bridge (the guys who wrote the music for Creed – wow, that’s some kinda credentials) are hard pressed to be worse

Unvarnished – Joan Jett And The Blackhearts – You know what you hope it sounds like? That’s exactly what it sounds like; glam rock, power rock, street anthem, soccer game top of the terrace at the top of your lungs singalonga – B+
