Yes, it is unfortunate that we can predict what will be ‘popular’ so far in advance, but lately it’s only been a matter of reading the right notes taken by a few wealthy music execs. Allow me to introduce you to some of the music that will saturate the summer airwaves:

Bent Fabric is an 81 year old musician who won a grammy back in the sixties. I’m not certain if his latest album is out yet in Canada or the US, but you’re sure to hear the first single, jukebox, on the radio shortly.

What does it sound like? Imagine Elvis having a little less conversation with Fatboy Slim in a jazz club. That’s pretty much it with one exception: “Keep on Rising” is a carbon copy of Fatboy Slim’s “Praise You”

Apart from Jukebox, the second track that’s sure to get a bit of airplay is “Haven’t You Noticed” with vocals by Liv Lykke who is Hillary Duff’s Scandinavian twin sister.

I’m not saying it’s good or bad, all I know is that it’s classier than Eminem:

Hum, was about to post a link to a lyric page like I did for my last post, but I couldn’t find one at all. Google has failed me. Humph. Perhaps it’s because there are only four lines.

I’m like a jukebox baby
and i know you’ll be following me
you’re gonna raise your hands and go crazy
yeah i know you’ll be following me
just keep your ear to the ground
and keep you ear to the ground
just keep your ear to the ground
and keep your ear to the ground
