Resolution in HMV 

Without wanting TiaPL to turn into a Siobhan Donaghy fansite, we would like to take the oppurtunity to remind you that her new album Revolution in Me is out now in all good record shops. Now, clearly the reason that her last single failed to set the charts alight was because you were all saving your pennies so that you could afford to buy the album. Right? Please let that be the reason. It's the only one that makes sense, after all, the other idea that people simply didn't like the single is just ludicrous.

Also, while you're buying your copy, you could do worse than pop into your local Virgin Megastore where you'll find a copy of the ponymously titled debut album buy allSTARS*. This is a lost classic and deserves to have pride of place in anyone's record collection. Yes, even yours. Just remember the majesty of Land of Make Believe and Bump in the Night and let pure, simple common sense do the rest. And there's never been a better time to buy it as it's on sale for £2.99, which is, quite clearly, a bargain comparable to buying the moon for 2 Curly Wurly's and a copy of the Beano. Oh, and if you're feeling charitable, the one in Edinburgh has a copy of Everybody by Hear'Say for a quid. We were almost tempted, but then we remembered that Hear'Say were absolutely dire and dropping our pound coin down the drain would be a far more entertaining use of our cash, so we did. It went 'plop', much like their career.
