In 2005, Australian songstress Delta Goodrem paired with former Westlife member Brian McFadden to release Almost Here, a sort-of-ballad, that managed to do considerably well in the countries where it was released. The song, however,

would only mark the start of Goodrem and McFadden’s professional and personal (the two are engaged to be married) collaboration. After writing Together We Are One, a song Goodrem performed at the Opening Ceremony of the  Commonwealth Games in 2006, they went on to write several songs for Goodrem’s third album Delta. 

Now in 2010, McFadden has released his third solo album, entitled Wall of Soundz, a distinctly electro-pop offering that diverts from what he’s been known to offer. Despite that, the third single,  from the album, Mistakes featuring his leading lady, should not be missed. (more…)


The second day of the Round of 16 wasn’t  as exciting as the first, with both games being one sided  from start to end.

The day started off with Slovenia playing Australia, and once again, the European basketball showed its dominanace over the rest (well, not the North American just yet) andas the Slovenians bombed away for 16 3-pointers out of 33 tries and created a huge deficit in the first half that the Australians could never recover from, after an all around performance from the Slovenian team, led by Jaka Lakovic (19 points), Primoz Brezec (12 points) and Goran Dragic (10 points, 8 assists). Patrick Mills had 13 points for Australia.

In the late night game, the hosts Turkey welcomed the French team and overcame an all around game delivered by Boris Diaw (21 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists) and set up a clash with earlier winners Slovenia by beating France 95-77. Dominating the second and third quarters, Turkey left no hope for France to come back, despite the French trying to come back into the game by winning the 4th quarter. Hedo Turkoglu was Turkey’s star with 20 points, helped by Sunan Guler’s 17 points.
