Annie Lennox and The Circle Receive #ChangeTheCulture Award

Examining the many movie songs of Bryan Adams

Paul Childs Feb 12, 2018

After Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves - and that song! - hit big, the song work of Bryan Adams was in high demand at the movies...

Last month, this site ran an article about the power of feel good pop music to lighten our mood. As soon as I read it I rushed home and put on some Bryan Adams. This wasn’t just a sudden whim. I’ve been a huge fan of his ever since 'that bloke who sings about the best days of his life' released 'that song from that film'.

Hard Sun episode 2 review

Louisa Mellor Jan 13, 2018

Renko and Hicks pursue a serial killer in episode two of BBC action thriller Hard Sun. Spoilers ahead in our review…

Please note: although the entire series is available now on BBC iPlayer, our reviews will appear weekly. Please keep spoilers for future episodes out of the comments section, thanks!

See related Inside No. 9 series 4 episode 2 review: Bernie Clifton’s Dressing Room Inside No. 9 series 4 episode 1 review: Zanzibar Inside No. 9 series 3: “We’re not sadists!”

This review contains spoilers.

After an opening hour that chucked a kilo of cooked plot-spaghetti at several walls to see what stuck, Hard Sun settled on an identity in episode two. It’s going to be The X-Files, but instead of conspiracy aliens investigated by Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, it’s conspiracy truthers investigated by Danny Dyer and Annie Lennox.

There’s the potential for countless case offshoots from the central government cover-up.

Spotlight: Annie Lennox's Charity Work

Annie Lennox has come a long way since fronting the Grammy Award-winning Eurythmics in the 1980s. Since then she has become a successful solo artist, sold more than 80 million records, and become renowned for her charity work with organizations such as Amnesty International, Greenpeace, and Nelson Mandela’s 46664 Foundation.

The singer, who received the British Red Cross' Services to Humanity Award in 2008, dedicates much of her time to raising awareness of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.

Lennox released a special fundraising single called Sing, which featured a 23-member choir of female celebrities, including Madonna, Faith Hill, Pink, and many more. Proceeds from the single went to the Treatment Action Campaign (Tac), an organization that that provides much needed support in the continent’s struggle against the deadly virus.

Among them, Annie Lennox plays an extraordinary role; her commitment and passion are simply unique.”

“I have something to say about the word ‘sustainability,’ which lies at the crux of every single aspect of life around the planet,” said Annie during her speech. "The very existence of our human species is totally dependent on the healthy sustainability of all the other forms of life.

“Everything is connected, so when one animal, plant or insect species is affected by human predation, exploitation or pollution, there is a knock on effect and everything else is impacted.

With a ‘Film Stars’ Song in Contention, Rock Star Elvis Costello Reflects on Moonlighting for the Movies

With a ‘Film Stars’ Song in Contention, Rock Star Elvis Costello Reflects on Moonlighting for the Movies
Elvis Costello wrote the closing song for the new movie “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” but it’s a classic from his own canon that director Paul McGuigan planted as an Easter egg for music buffs. Costello’s “Pump It Up” is heard early on in the film to establish the late ’70s time frame, right before a scene that has the American actress Gloria Grahame (played by Annette Bening) meeting her younger Liverpudlian boyfriend (Jamie Bell) for the first time. Just after “Pump It Up” is heard on the soundtrack, the two lovers-to-be dance to “Boogie Oogie Oogie” — a cheeky nod to one of the silliest awards upsets of all time, when the ephemeral disco group A Taste of Honey famously beat Costello for the best new artist Grammy.

“You know what? It didn’t register,” admits Costello, who didn’t get the embedded joke when he first saw the film, and whom the

Strictly Come Dancing: week nine – as it happened

The dancers were in Blackpool this week – so who rocked the Tower Ballroom, and who took the first bus home?

8.01pm GMT

Jonnie and Oti take a final turn around the dancefloor to “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”. Bit dusty in here.

On that sad note, this year’s Blackpool Special is over! Service will resume as normal next week, with only seven dancers left fighting for the four places in the Grand Final on 16th December. Kick off is at 6.50pm, so join me then for another sparkle-filled Saturday night. Thanks for joining in, and have a great week! Hx

7.58pm GMT

All the judges vote for Debbie and Giovanni, which means Jonnie And Oti are leaving the Strictly dancefloor.

He thanks the judges for judging him as an equal, and hopes the next person with a disability who performs on Strictly can tuck their bum under better than him.
