Ten Ideas for 2010
1 Greg (Lily Allen / Little Boots) Kurstin collaborates on songwriting for a new Human League album. Little Boots joins Joanna and Susan for vocals on one track.
2 The record industry finally gets off its ass and deals with trade issues surrounding digital purchases across borders. Charge me a small tax per song so I can buy from iTunes around the world.
3 Lucky Soul covers (for a b-side) a Kirsty MacColl song like Free World, A New England (well, that's Billy Bragg) or maybe even the later Angel.
4 The United States government calls a halt to the merger of LiveNation and Ticketmaster.
5 When Rihanna releases the inevitable Christmastime deluxe Rated R, she makes it a Gaga affair with no less than 6 new songs.
6 Vanity 6 is released on CD and The Sundays RETURN.
7 With the gradually improving economy, record labels begin to fund proper music videos once more. doubtful
8 Britain produces two good Britpop bands.
9 Madonna knocks Gaga on her ass with a monolithic ballad.
10 I hit London and meet up with my friends in a pub for an evening. In turn, some of them finally meet for the first time as well.
