AILBHE MALONEis hopped up on serotonin over the Good Natured
TRACK OF THE WEEK:
5HT by The Good Natured.
Look at goth-poppers The Good Natured, using their clever brains. They must have been down the Science Gallery, as the title of this track refers to the serotonin receptors in one’s brain, which control moods.
Scientific! But basically this track is all about love making you happy and all that. Ten points for the hook which goes “you kill the pain, my opiate”.
Seriously though, this is produced by Richard X (Annie, Kelis) and co-written with Hannah Robinson (Lana del Rey, Icona Pop).
What we’re trying to say is that with raw ingredients like this, even if the cake is burnt, it’ll still be delicious.
Ten years of Girls Aloud means 10 years’ worth of reflection. And times weren’t always rosy, remembers Cheryl Cole. “It was intense and crazy hard work, there was always a drama of some description. There were five girls, there was always a drama. If someone’s on one for some reason you know to avoid that person. We never exploded, though.”
Meanwhile, Nicola recalled the group’s less traditional publicity methods. “We were driving around and when we stopped at traffic lights, we would wind down the windows and shout at people to buy our single.” Seems to have paid off, eh girls?
Taylor Swift in basing music on real-life experiences shocker! Taylor told MTV News that I Knew You Were Trouble came from an encounter with a past beau.
“I had just gone through an experience that made me write this song about like knowing the second you see someone, ‘Oh this is going to be interesting, it’s going to be dangerous, but look at me going in there anyway’.” She went on to explain the artistic process behind the video.
“My favourite thing [about the video] is that this girl not only gets sucked into this relationship with him but she loses who she was before and that’s the saddest part of losing him, is that she can’t remember who she was before she met him.” Chin up Taylor!
