    Today's update is one for the gays. Constant Craving is a massive gay anthem from out-and-proud k.d. Lang with lovely layered vocals and a catchy chorus. We also have the opening number from the 1970 Sondheim musical Company, you kinda gotta know the concept musical to get a full appreciation of the song, so if anyone's got a spare 2 hours, here's the 2011 show with Neil Patrick Harris, Martha Plimpton, Stephen Colbert, Patti LuPone etc.:

    "Caught in a Moment" is sublime. I think the only two songs in their catalogue superior to that one (that I know of) are "Push the Button" and "Follow Me Home". "Clarity" is nice. It's very chorus-centric.

    "Come Clean" is okay. It definitely sounds better now than it did the first time I heard it and rated it 6/10 (I think it was 6/10 I gave it). I'd give it 7.7/10 now. "Commander" is one of my favourite songs of the decade actually. It's the best thing Kelly Rowland has ever done. (I think you like "Stole" more).

    "Constant Craving" is quite relatable. "Company" is lovely! I will never need context to appreciate opera-esque high notes, speed-singing, and melodrama.

    EDIT: So that was "Getting Married Today" that I was raving about. I just listened to the actual "Company" and...um, yeah, context might help for this one. Well, honestly, when they're not screeching for Bobby, the track's pretty nice. It's good enough that I added both real and fake "Company" to my Spotify library.

    There are verses in Clarity?
    Yes, you know my Rowland loving so well.
    Once you get over the "Bobby" shouting, the music to Company is flawless. Glad you like Getting Married Today, such a great patter song.

    Cool Kids by Echosmith is one of the more modern songs on my list, a cute little radio song but it's so damn catchy. The chorus is one of my faves of the 2010s. Baby Spice finds a track from her awesome Maybe album - Crickets Sing For Anamaria - a Latin-infused pop song with basic lyrics but such a catchy beat that you can't help but love it. She's had better songs but this one is quirky and cool.

    'Cool Kids' is great, both the melody and the lyrics.

    Onto a bit of D. Stereophonics' Dakota is the only song of theirs that I'll actually listen to - that's not to say that they don't have other good songs but this is the only one that I really like. While Electric Six's Danger High Voltage (which boasts one of the strangest music videos ever) is a catchy tune which doesn't get enough love.

    They should be back up working now, I've tried a new uploader.

    I've checked it out and I like it. Nothing ground-breaking but pleasant to listen to.

    One of Imagine Dragons' first and finest hits was Demons. Apparently it was overplayed on the radio but I don't listen to the radio so I couldn't care less, it's a great rock song. One of the Sugababes' more underrated singles Denial is a great Xenomania pop affair from their finest era IMO and definitely off their best album.

    I love 'Denial' as well, it's very underrated indeed! It's my second favourite Sugababes song after 'Push the Button'.

    A one-hit wonder for a 2000s dance track, Destination Calabria, is a saxophone infused bop that excels from having a really basic beat. The other song is a Rihanna classic - some of her tracks haven't aged well at all, but Diamonds still sounds as good today as it did when it was first released and is certainly one of her finest.

    Diamonds is great, one of Rihanna's best songs.

    "Cool Kids" is good! It just screams Glee, so it was a foregone conclusion that the show would utilise it at some point. "Crickets Sing for Anamaria" is interesting. I'll revisit it since it sounds like it could be a grower.

    "Dakota" is okay. "Danger! High Voltage" is solid! It lived up to its title.

    "Demons" is brilliant! Before "Whatever It Takes" came along, it was my favourite Imagine Dragons song. "Denial" is lovely. I'm realising that I like or love most Sugababes songs.

    "Destination Calabria" was enjoyable. I was thinking ahead to my 2010s decade-end songs chart about which songs would be contending for #1, and "Diamonds" was one of the songs that I determined would be. It's a winning combination of mellow and empowering that I can have on repeat for hours without getting bored.

    Sugababes have so many awesome singles, I'm glad you're enjoying them. I agree on your analysis of Diamonds, and I only discovered Cool Kids because of Glee.

    Two singles that I don't expect to be very well known on here. Actor Cheyenne Jackson released this upbeat, summery number a few years ago and I recall getting a few members invested in Don't Wanna Know so I was pleased about that. The other song comes off one of my favourite albums by 3OH!3, Double Vision is a great pop-trash song that is infectious as hell.

    "Don't Wanna Know" is lovely. It has a cute video, too. I don't know what it says about our music tastes that we like 3OH!3 so much.

    "Don't Wanna Know" is freaking lovely, catchy and cute. I always forget that bop exists... need to listen to it again. Good choice!

    "Diamonds" is one of Rihanna's finest singles!

    Yeah, he's been on Broadway and released a solid album of original tracks a few years back.
