We have literally lived through one of the most epically sucktastic winters in recorded history, between the heavy snowfall, rivers of slush, piles of ice and, um, rain (boo hoo, Los Angeles).

Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s “Runaway Daydreamer” Video Finds The Singer Looking More Beautiful Than Ever

Robbie Daw | March 7, 2014 - 10:19 am

It’s been a true pleasure seeing Sophie Ellis-Bextor have another hit album in the UK with Wanderlust, as previous efforts like Make A Scene and Trip The Light Fantastic were woefully overlooked by the music-buying public at large.
