The 4th, the 5th, the minor fall and the Major Lift...

Well, I've always been a fan of the late Jeff Buckley, I'd advise everyone to go and buy "Grace" if they haven't already. This is the song he's probably most famous for covering (Hallelujah). The program is an interesting listen, aired on Radio 2 last weekend and hosted by Elbow's Guy Garvey. There *is* always the danger that you will get truly sick of the song after hearing so many different versions of the Leonard Cohen classic. Catch it now before it expires:

The Kings of Leon have also finally clicked with me although for some reason it is "Because of the Times" that I'm listening to at the moment. Maybe next year I'll be listening to their current album...I don't go to Glastonbury anymore but I was quite jealous when I saw these guys on TV, almost made me want to get covered in mud and brave the "toilets" all over again...

"Fans",

and "Arizona", the best song on the album: (IMHO)
