A Bridge over You for Xmas Number 1!

Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 17.22.02

A charity single by The Lewisham And Greenwich NHS Choir which includes doctors, nurses and physios is hoping to make this year’s coveted Christmas number one spot.

The song, “A Bridge over You” features a mashup of the smash hit by Coldplay and Simon and Garfunkel, and is an emotional celebration of the thousands of NHS staff who go the extra mile every day.

Caroline Smith who is an alto voice in the Choir, spoke to Jason McCrossan and Kyra Cross on 106.9 SFM Saturday breakfast show.  Caroline told Jason that as it’s a charity song, all proceeds will be shared between Carers UK and Mind (including Mind’s sister charities in Scotland and Northern Ireland), and in the new year a smaller percentage will also be distributed amongst smaller charities in the New Year.

A number of celebrities have been linked to the charity single and you are encouraged to download the song and tweet or post #loveyournhs – as Jason, Kyra and Jan did!

The song is available from Itunes, Amazon and google.

For more information or support, the NHS 4 Xmas website is here.


Coldplay’s Swansong


Coldplay have announced its farewell album ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ will be released in December. They shared a new song, a track listing, and an intriguing set of collaborators for the new set. To help you get ready for Coldplay’s seventh studio album, we’ve complied a handy run-down of everything we know so far about the latest offering from Chris Martin and company.

The album was recorded in Malibu, Los Angeles, and will include a world tour in 2016 (dates and locations are yet to be announced.

They have released the first song from the album – ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’ which is upbeat, poptastic and really has a good hook.  I hope the rest of the album lives up to this track.  I will be playing it on my 9th November 2015 Monday Matters show on www.sfmradio.com.

The full tracklist for A Head Full of Dreams:

1 A Head Full Of Dreams
2 Birds
3 Hymn For The Weekend
4 Everglow
5 Adventure Of A Lifetime
6 Fun
7 Kaleidoscope
8 Army Of One
9 Amazing Day
