Last time I was there I had a major delay due to weather (luckily they used to be a week apart) and don't want to risk it if it's on the day before the Sydney leg. I know MAB did it this(?) year and I'm glad he didn't experience those delays :P

Basically what I'm trying to say is come to Sydney

1. Memory Tapes - Walk Me Home

It's spoopy and you can dance to it.
This song is for the guy who keeps yelling from the balcony, and it's called "We Hate You, Please Die".

Top Five Pop Divas (in order, to solve the argument in the other thread):

1. Madonna (sure, the last couple of albums have been dance, and not as good, but when she sticks to pop, no one comes close).
2. P!nk
3. Katy Perry
4. Swiftie
5. Lady Gaga

(I suspect Ariana Grande will climb this list over the next two years).

I've given them both a few good listens, just never got into either of them.
Gaga seems to have fallen into the abyss lately, I did like Bad Romance though. (her best single)
The last album didn't seem to do too well.

I'm using "Pop Diva" as a synonym for "Pop Singer". It's probably wrong of me to do so.

1. Lady Gaga
2. Fiona Apple
3. Lily Allen
4. Taylor Swift
5. Tori Amos

HM: Sky Ferreira, Beyonce et al.

I meant, of the big, superstar pop singers, who are your five faves. I had a moral dilemma about Nicki Minaj, and decided she didn't qualify.

...then I realised I forgot Kylie, and decided that I'm an idiot.

There's something really likeable about Pink. I reckon we'd be mates.

Also, interesting that there's no love for Christina.
