your love is the bullet, my love is the gun...
After the brilliant success of the A-Z of music, The Art of Noise has recently started a new series: "In the Dock". Every week something musical is put on trial, cases are put for the prosecution and for the defence, and then votes are cast in the comments.
So far, not only did our very own Lord Bargain do a great job of prosecuting The Beatles, but the Eurovision song contest and songs with associated dance moves were both acquitted and the Levellers were found guilty of all charges (and were hopefully executed in a slow and painful way).
This week, R'n'B is in the dock. I'm prosecuting and Del is defending.
Usher - it's all about the music, ladies, not the crochet hat
Go and have a look and please cast your vote. I'm not asking you to vote for me.... just go and read the arguments and make up your own mind.
.....all I ask is that as you do make up your mind, please do have Mariah Carey, R.Kelly and Usher records playing on a loop in your head.
