Four songs you may have missed

Oh hi there. Apologies for the total lack of updates since Friday. If it's any consolation, every time you hit the refresh button, I was busy throwing up. Not pleasant.

Anyway, I'm not about to let my recovery get in the way of a blog post. Here are a couple of videos that found their way onto the internet while I had my head down the toilet.

1) Taylor Swift - I Knew You Were Trouble
Should songs be allowed to be this catchy? Maybe, but at the very least the UN should have some sort of monitoring set-up. If this power got into the wrong hands, we'd all be in trouble.

2) Jessie Ware - Sweet Talk
Because kids dressing up as successful pop stars and miming to a backing track is the music video trope that refuses to die.

3) Girls Aloud - Beneath Your Beautiful
Top marks to the Aloud for this cover of the Labrinth / Emeli Sande song in Radio 1's Live Lounge last week. And bonus points for sneaking in the chorus to their latest single, Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me.

It's 100% less ridiculous than the ITV1 documentary on the band's tenth anniversary, which aired last weekend. "During the three-year hiatus, Cheryl had three platinum-selling solo albums, and the rest of the band were busy with projects that were personally important to them as well."

4) Charli XCX - You (Ha Ha Ha)
How Charli XCX isn't on the various "sound of 2013" lists is beyond me. Her latest single, You (Ha Ha Ha) isn't her strongest - a monotonous chorus rescued by a yelping Gold Panda sample - but it's still better than anything on the last Saturdays album.
