Only pop music can save us now

This post may cross some line of consistency or common sense given the Flea's devotion to Kylie Minogue, Madonna and all sorts of nonsense. The Lair of the Flea resounds with KylieFever2002 as I type this and it is with a yearning for London matched only in the heart of William Blake that I look across the spectral sea of the internet to the lost shores of British pop culture. The Flea's speculum chanced upon Sophie Ellis-Bexter and hopeful thoughts of a new diva to worship came close behind.

The Flea's chains rattled in glorious anticipation as Ellis-Bexter's music clips prepared to play, the music started and... the horror! This is awful. Truly terrible. But worse was to come... could it be this pop music star could not sing all that well but was getting by on her looks?

You...you...

You

I dig Sophie's (we are on a first name basis) music! And she's hot. Er, and cool...I'm too old to know all the lingo: perhaps I should just wear a silk sports jacket and grow a ponytail...and buy a Porsche.

Seriously, they've got a good beat, easy to remix, and, if you're into videos, hers are quite creative and funny.

She's also a great cook.

Mmm. Cooking. Perhaps I should give this some more thought.

Who's up for Sophie Ellis-Bexter Week at the Flea™? Time to install one of those blog-poll things.
