MDP On MusicVids: ‘Radioactive’ by Imagine Dragons

MDP On MusicVids: 'Radioactive' by Imagine Dragons

'Welcome to the New Age ...' Such a magnificent music anthem! There are a few versions of Radioactive floating around YouTube, but my favourite is definitely Imagine Dragons Live at the Joint. It's a song that swells under the power of a live gig, complete with big drum sound and crowd ...

MDP On MusicVids: “This is What it Feels Like” by Armin van Buuren feat.Trevor Guthrie

MDP On MusicVids: This is What it Feels Like by Armin van Buuren feat.Trevor Guthrie

I really like this song. A lot. It has that D.J. dance beat that characterises club music of the last five years; Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, blah, blah... But I don't think I've been irritated by a video clip so much in a long while. Two men boysing ...

Review: Heaven is a Place on Earth by Graham Storrs

Graham Storrs doesn’t answer these questions, but he touches on them and attempts to reveal the morality of all-encompassing change. Heaven ...

MDP ON TV: The Bridge

MDP ON TV: The Bridge

First thing I have to say is, that The Bridge has the most exceptional theme song. Hollow Talk by The Choir of Young Believers is a moody, delicate, depressing song. Perfect for a series, which is all of the above. The Bridge snuck up on me. I had it in the ...

MDP ON TV: Being Human

MDP ON TV: Being Human

The UK series premiered in 2009 and I heard a lot about it back then. As often happens with me, I watched a half an episode on TV and got distracted and never got back to it. Then I bought series one, but that languished on my shelves for a ...
