As previously mentioned, has been off to a rocking good start (not necessarily referring to the genre of music), and we thought it a good time to "take stock" of two noteworthy occurrences...


With "Decide" reaching #1 this past week, PET SHOP BOYS achieve their twentieth (!) #1 on Blue-Box....!
In doing so, they equal ROXETTE s number of #1s this week... Together they trail behind only A-HA now (with their 24). The way things are going for them, it seems likely they might make it "twenty something" soon?


And then we had the incredible good fortune ~ that so soon after ALAN WALKER and AVA MAX walked away from the 2019 Gloves as Male and Female Artist of the Year ~ they released a duet with "Alone, Pt. II", and debuted straight in at #1!



Can you believe that makes it already NINE #1s for Alan since only 2016? (And gives Ava her second, following last year s "So Am I".)

Excitement in the air this week about the brand new STACEY Q album "Jet Town Je t aime"!



Released internationally under the moniker "SSQ" (like "Miami Sound Machine" if we were talking about Gloria Estefan.... Exactly the same thing), here on the Islands we are getting Stacey Q.



Though it may not be the strictly synth-dance outing some people are accustomed to getting from her and her team, it is a DELIGHTFUL album, expertly written and put together ~ mixing said synth-pop sounds with styles like folk and even a little jazz.

"Dance Love Play" is among the initial standouts... but it is especially the delectable "Surrender To The Groove" which is looking to make a big impact in the Top 10 this week!

Welcome back, Stacey, we missed ya!

Ok, it was time... to make up our minds... and so we have decided......
Since here on the Islands we are not very taken with the new PET SHOP BOYS single "Monkey Business" - we are rather going with.... "Decide" (originally the B-side of "Burning The Heather" released the tail-end of last year...) ~ specifically the brilliant CYA Remix of it, and more specifically the new Ultra-Pop Radio Edit which has injected new life into it!!






Many thanks to our good friend Popmaster at our sister-country WALDIA, for providing said edit!

Another year... another great night! The BLUE GLOVE AWARDS once more showed appreciation for the greatest happenings in this corner of our world.



So the big winners of the night were Finnish band BEAST IN BLACK ~ grabbing 4 awards on the night!
Furthermore it was a big year for RAMMSTEIN, walking away with 2, and 1 each for ALAN, AVA and GIGI. The Lifetime Achievement award, with a moving tribute deservedly went to Swedish icons ROXETTE. For all the details, you know where to go!
