Chris Moyle's Parody Album
Steering away from this weeks more serious releases such as Rihanna and Lady GaGa. Out this week is BBC Radio 1 DJ, Chris Moyle's Parody Album (check out the cover, reminiscing Take That's Circus above) a hilarious re-working of recent popular pop songs and surprisingly, considering he's not a singer, he sounds pretty good on most of these tracks. Out of the lengthy 20-track set, highlights so far include "Lorrydriver" (Britney Spears "Womanizer") "Meat Again" (JLS "Beat Again") "The Boy Does Plenty" (Alesha Dixon "The Boy Does Nothing") "Waterproofs" (La Roux "Bulletproof") arguably the most funny track on here, which is a tough call.
Features are intact as Calvin Harrison makes an appearence on his own re-working of "Dance Wiv Me," and Ricky Wilson on "I Predict a Diet" (Keiser Cheif's "I Predict a Riot"). Fairly, there are some original numbers, such as the annoyingly funny "Nana Window," the cheesy traditional piano and orchestration ballad "Funeral Song" (although not as cheesy as his morning show anthem) and christmas anthem "Never Gonna Snow," the '60s sounding trumpets and jingles remind me of the music from Family Guy.
