Firstly, thanks, glad you like the charts :)

 

As The_Rock_Band_King mentions, a lot of the other tracks were charted. It might be worth PM-ing him to see if he can send them over.

 

I don't have any immediate plans to chart more Muse songs, but they're always on my radar. I'd probably be more likely to do stuff from the first couple of albums, though.

 

 

I had the rest of the album uploaded here but not revolt and also [Drill Sergeant] and [JFK] (There nothing much :P)

 

But they got copyright so i had to remove them.

 

Thanks guys for the answer, I'll try.

Alan Partridge & Gina Langland - ABBA Medley

 

Preview video

 

Alan Partridge is a broadcaster who, at his peak, hosted a chat show on BBC television called 'Knowing Me Knowing You with Alan Partridge' (or KMKYWAP). Unfortunately for him, the show was not a critical or commercial success and was cancelled after one disastrous series, which culminated in him fatally shooting his final guest live on the air. Since then, he has faded into relative obscurity. A fly-on-the-wall documentary entitled 'I'm Alan Partridge' chronicled his return to radio in his native Norfolk. Since then, he has become one of North Norfolk's most successful and long-lived radio DJs, although his national fame is long gone. He gained some attention in 2013 when he was embroiled in a siege at his radio station, being heavily involved in negotiations with Pat Farrell, a former colleague of Alan's who took many people hostage. This garnered Partridge some national attention which he failed to capitalise on.

 

This song is from his 1994 chat show. One of his guests was the American pop superstar Gina Langland, and the two of them performed a medley of ABBA hits on the show. Gina, too, has faded into obscurity since her peak in the mid-90s - the very same night as the performance on KMKYWAP, she performed a sell-out show at London's Earls Court, but has not returned to those heights since.

 

This, then, is a unique opportunity to recreate that seismic performance, which features such ABBA classics as Thank You For The Music, Take a Chance on Me, Voulez-Vous, and snippets from a whole host of others. Partridge and Langland are backed by the show's house band, Glenn Ponder and Ferrari.

 

Okay, full disclaimer. This is a spoof performance by Steve Coogan and Rebecca Front, two fantastic British actors/comedians. Alan Partridge is Coogan's most successful creation. As for the custom, it's a lot of fun on vocals and Pro Keys, but fun just listening to it on any of the other instruments. This is one of my favourite TV moments ever - enjoy :)


I'm charting again! Check out My Customs - featuring Muse, Coldplay, Oasis, Kings of Leon, Blur, Snow Patrol, RATM, Death Cab, New Radicals and more!

One Direction - Steal My Girl

 

First update for a while and something a little different. This is a really catchy song which I find very enjoyable despite it arguably being slightly misogynistic (why they went with 'She belongs to me' rather than 'She's in love with me' or something, I'm not sure). Good fun on all instruments and it's with full multitracks too. Enjoy.

Hope of the States - 66 Sleepers to Summer

 

I'm in the process of charting this whole album, but thought I'd share what I've done so far. Hope of the States are a (sadly) defunct band from the UK, who released two albums. These are the first three tracks from their debut, which received a lot of attention on release for good and bad reasons. Good, because it was their first release after an intense bidding war from a range of major labels, and bad because founder-member Jimmi Lawrence tragically committed suicide just as the album was being finished.

 

The album gained a lot of critical acclaim, including a 9/10 rating from the NME, and generated three top-30 singles, but sales were lower than hoped. The band released a second album, Left, in 2006, but disbanded shortly afterwards.

 

The Lost Riots remains one of my favourite albums of all time, if not THE favourite. The band is somewhere between Godspeed-style post-rock and feel-good indie. A lot of their songs have a certain sombreness (although unrelated to Jimmi's death, as all the first album's lyrics were completed before he died) but nearly all have an element of hope. The band's message could best be summed up by the coda of Enemies/Friends: "Come on people, keep your friends close, your enemies won't matter in the end".

 

I'll be adding more from this album, and others from their discography, in due course, but I really hope you enjoy these for now.
