Lego does Bonnie Tyler: Total Eclipse of the Lego



Sign of the Apocalypse #7: Real Housewife Kim's new single

So this is what we've come to. This is what the culmination of thousands of years of human culture and advancement and philosophy and science has resulted in. A tone-deaf living nightmare of a cougar warning us not to be late or something - a terrible, terrible something - will happen.

If it were anyone other than "Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak" it would just be a not-horrible RedOne knockoff but it is "Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak" so instead it is a cosmic sign that baby Jesus will soon be coming back to lay waste to the Earth with fire and water and rapture all the Girls Aloud fans up to Heaven where Xenomania does the soundtrack and no one is ever over-lit


Hockey's new 'Song Away'

It may come as a surprise to some that ScopiSat has a soft spot for a good guitar-indie jam. This is a pop blog, though, and so we don't get many chances to spotlight that kind of thing. Luckily a song came out this week that straddles the line between VERY GOOD POP and VERY GOOD ROCK and has a melody and a chorus and things that pop songs are supposed to have and really indie songs aren't. The song in question is called 'Song Away' and is by Hockey the band. We say Hockey the band because Hockey is also a sport and that could get confusing.

We would show you the video but Capitol Records feels that videos are to be made and not seen and does not allow embedding. So instead here is a picture to look at while a song plays.

'Song Away' is out now for download in the UK on Capitol.
