Make It Right – Armin Van Buuren – Typical trance trance, very melodic, very MOR popness, Angel Taylor just the right touch of indistinct to the vocal – B-

Me And Your Mama – Childish Gambino – The TV star returns with a song pretty darn left field, a 60s style soul and psychedelic freak out six minutes in length… but good value for money because the final coupla minutes take years – C+

Me And My Money – Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Ty Dolla Sign – Like Fat Joe rapping over a Drake track, provided by Ty’s inspired steal, and Remy in the background – C+

Life Goes On – Fergie – Soul dance pop, catchy as hell, “You can go, you can stay, who cares anywhere…” I’m thinking – B-

We Should Be Friends – Miranda Lambert – The drums are too strong, the mood for moderns, and the twang what you’d expect but it is a catchy mo fo. The instrumental break is a goodie  -B-

Show Me – Neil Young – I’ve been listening to Time Fades Away for the first time in living memory. If he could write the soprt of jaunty genre bender he did on the title track, he might sell more people – C+

Harry Patch (In Memory Of) – Radiohead – Strings by Jonny, somber for no real reason singing by Thom, this dreary tribute to the last man standing (who lay down in 2009) from WW1 is an honorable snooze – C+

On Hold – The xx – “Yup, that is a pitch-shifted snippet of “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” anchoring the xx’s comeback single” -wow those Pitchfork youngsters have great ears – B-

I Would Like – Zara Larsson – Euro electro popstar up to nothing much – C+
