Mary, Queen of Shops
Mary Portas returned for a second series of being awesome and sorting out failing fashion businesses. There was a slight sense of having seen it all before this time round, but that hasn’t stopped Gordon Ramsay yet, has it? And Portas is amazing. Maybe she needs a sexcond vehicle for her amazingness in 2009, though, as this one can’t run for ever.
Mystery Jets feat Laura Marling – Young Love
Sweet and just about managing to avoid being twee, the Mystery Jets enjoyed a lot of airplay and marginal chart success earlier this year with ‘Young Love’ and ‘Two Doors Down’ tales of very simple everyboy/girl love. This was the best though, as Laura Marling’s vocal elevated it above your standard indie singsong.
