All things media and comms related

Latest tunes you’ve just gotta love!

I just have to blog about the chart music at the moment that I just cannot stop singing along to. It definitely feels like winter is ending and those summery, driving in your car with windows down, tunes are making their appearances…

This song is definitely being played the most on my Iphone right now. Love it! I predict it is going to be so massive! My only complaint is…girls why are you still called the Sugarbabes? With a song like that a new name, new image, new brand could be launched and be so successful. Just a suggestion!

I just can’t get enough of Cheryl Cole! She just doesn’t stop and I’m glad of it. Who needs Ashley and a status as a WAG when you can be just as successful on your own. I loved the comment she made just before her recent split with the Chelsea football player: “I’m not a WAG, Ashley is a popstar’s husband!”

What an amazing performance at The BRITS! Florence has such a unique voice and really makes Candi Station’s song her own.

[This song is really growing on me. I’m not convinced it’s quite as good as ‘Whatcha Say’ but I do still really like it! Catchy rhythm and lyrics… Another top 10 hit from Jason Derulo?

Alicia Keys has such a beautiful voice and she is so talented. Another song to be left on repeat!

Sarah Mason’s quickfire Q+A interview


Undergraduate Student Sarah Mason

In a Twitter style interview, Sarah Mason is challenged to answer my questions in under 140 characters. I discover why she chose to study at Bournemouth University, her career prospects and who she will be supporting at tonight’s BRIT Awards….

Why did you choose to read BA Communication and Media at Bournemouth University?

I wanted to study something media related and BU’s Media school has such a good reputation.

And what exactly is your course?

My course  covers a range of media practices such as journalism, pr and marketing. Over the three years you can focus it to the area that interests you.

What career are you looking to pursue after graduating then?

I’m interested in writing and have just started a blog. So possibly a career in journalism or publishing.

On your blog you have a link to your twitter account. Who are you following?

Yes, I’ve only just signed up to Twitter but so far I’m following BBC News, NME and Q Magazine.

Oh, so if you are interested in music I bet you are looking forward to the BRIT Awards tonight?

I am so looking forward to seeing British talent recognised by the music industry. Although, I do get annoyed that only the big names win awards and small bands are looked over.

Who will you be supporting?

Florence and The Machine! I love her album as she has a genuinely good voice. She’s nominated for 3 awards.

Anyone else?

Also, Muse ‘coz I’m going to see them this year.

So, possibly a career writing for music magazines?

Maybe. I do always have an opinion whether it’s the right one or not!
