Today's Tedious Link:

Blur - Parklife

Tedious Facts:

This featured the vocals of actor Phil Daniels, most famous for his role in Quadrophenia. Leslie Ash was in it too but thankfully without the rubber duckie lips. This was the pinnacle of Blurs career. Parklife hit 10 in the chart but more importantly stayed around the album chart top 40 until their next release came out, the very commercial but underrated The Great Escape. You could buy the best of if you want Song 2 along with this but i would instead tell you to buy the album Parklife instead.

The Key, The Secret by the Urban Cookie Collective

Tedious Facts:

Ahh the smell of my favourite compilation that I bought in 2002. Its the welcome return of the long winded title Breakdown - The Very Best Euphoric Old Skool. Dave took from it this 1993 track.

Today's Tedious Link:

All Saints with Never Ever

Tedious Facts:

We all know about The Appletons are up to now but nothing about the other 2, considered the talented ones. Melanie Blatt seems to have disappeared only resurfacing with singing duties with Artful Dodger and with a UK rap group whose name i've forgotten but it did get to number 43. Shaznay Lewis was last seen on the acclaimed Brit film Bend It Like Beckham. Best place to get this is Hits, released last year as a cash cow.

Boom! Shake the Room by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince

Today's Transcript:

All Saints got their name from All Saints Road, where they used to live in London. London is a capital city, as is Oslo. If you add the letter 'N' to the word 'Oslo' you get 'Onslo', who was the scruffy brother-in-law in 'Keeping Up Appearances'. The actor who played Onslow also played Twiggy in 'The Royle Family', which launched the career of Ralf Little. Ralf Little shares the same surname as Mark Little, who played Joe Mangel in 'Neighbours'. Neighbours become good friends, and 'Friends' is a hit American TV series starring Jennifer Aniston. 'Aniston' is almost the same as 'Ariston', who make washing machines. If your washing machine was to blow up it would go "boom" and may even shake the room, which links to DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince and 'Boom! Shake The Room'.

Flaws:

Adding an 'N' to 'Oslo' doesn't make 'Onslow', as it requires an extra 'W' at the end.

Uglybob's Tedious Facts:

Before Will Smith became crap and immersed in his own ego, he had todays singalong anthem for which I entertained my classmates 10 years ago by rapping the whole tune. Their greatest hits was released in 2001, which also includes the whole theme tune to the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, if you're an anorak.

A Tribe Called Quest with Can I Kick It

Tedious Facts:

Possibly the only song to sample Pete Tong's voice. Supremely recommended is the Anthology released in 1999. If you like this, try out the special price solo album released by Q-Tip in 2000.

Today's Tedious Link:

Lenny Kravitz and Are You Gonna Go My Way

Tedious Facts:

I always say this is my favourite track ever. I could possibly dispute that in years to come bearing in mind he's a bit of a Jimi Hendrix wannabe. This was his highest charting song up until 1999 when he hit the top spot with Fly Away in February of that year. Best place to get link track is from his greatest hits released in 2000.

A Canadian Rap Duo - Yes words that go together like Peaches and Chips. These fellas however carried off where De La Soul left off in 1990 with this track and with their other big hit My Definition (which was also a Tedious Link). You can get it on Now The Legacy Begins released in 1991.

Chumbawumba and Tubthumping

Tedious Facts:

One hit wonders is probably what you're thinking. You'd be nearly right. Amnesia, the follow up did go top ten. They opened the 1998 Brit Awards, the same year band member Danbert Nobacon chucked that bucket of Water over Prescott. They are still about, somewhere. Answers on a postcard.... no i'd rather not know.
