For the majority of my life, I’ve never really lived in the country. I’ve always been in urban environments, where the nearest green space is a local park, and the […]
My /Tuesday Ten series began in March 2007, initially as an attempt to round up the best tracks of each month for my friends, but swiftly gained a life of […]
For the first of my subject-based /Tuesday Ten posts in 2022, I’m picking up on a suggestion thread that I did in the weeks before Christmas, and had got me […]
A new year, and a new look for my posts on /amodelofcontrol.com, for the most part, a case of tidying up things and getting a cleaner style.
This week marks the end of /Tuesday Tens for 2021 (they will resume in the new year), as I prepare to round up what has been a very busy year […]
Over recent posts in the past month or so, I’ve been working with the shortest one-word song titles we could think of. There was only one way I could go […]
…and just like that, this is the last /Tracks of the Month roundup for 2021. I’ll be beginning /Countdown/2021 in less than a month, looking at the best music of […]
I conclude – well, kinda – the short song title series with four-letter-word song titles, and this one took a lot of work.
Back on my current series this week, as I move onto three-letter song titles. This was where things got easier.
Another one a week later than usual, but then, life is weird and really damned busy right now. Here’s the latest slab of tracks of the month – with a […]
Following on from last week, we’re onto two-letter word song titles. And, it turns out, this was possibly the hardest of the lot – certainly going on the suggestions, there […]
A certain friend suggested recently that I open a suggestion thread for songs with four-letter titles (that were actual words – no punctuation, no abbreviations, no numbers). It spawned something […]
We’ve got one last blast of summer here this week, before we begin the tumble down into the cooler climes of Autumn. Clubs seem to be back in full force […]
Lockdown might be “over” in the UK – insomuch as the Government seems to have washed their hands of responsibility for it – but there are a lot of people […]
This was one of the first suggestion threads where many of the responses really frustrated me. What is a landmark? Let’s check the definition of a landmark: /Tuesday Ten/462/A Time […]
As many of my friends will know, my wife and I have become infamous for our adventures in cocktails. Be that hitting the bars of pretty much any city we […]
A week later than usual, thanks to a busy summer, but I got there in the end – here’s this month’s tracks of the month.
There are times when I ask questions for this long-running series that turn out, well, differently to how I might have expected, and this is one of those times.
We’re halfway through the year (already!), and into a new month, thus it is time for another wrap-up of the best new music of the past month on /amodelofcontrol.com.
While I’ve alluded to it before, and indeed perhaps referenced it in the odd song in this series – now over fourteen years old, and 457 posts in – I’ve […]
