I've noticed that Cannonball is being spun frequently on all the local and regional radio stations (well the local Cork stations anyway). I hear the remix about 5 times today! It's in 96fm's 'Top 20'.
I never really thought the day would come when it would be so widely received on such a mainstream level. This remix has obviously achieved what the record company, or management or whoever was pushing the remix set out to do.
I know that all this exposure can bring its down sides, they've all been discussed a million times before, but I think the more people that hear Damien the better, for them anyway.
My only hope is that they'll buy the album and hear the real cannonball.
Speaking of the album, it was number nine about 2 weeks ago in the Irish charts, has anyone any idea what it is now?





If you haven't read all that blabbing cos i didnt paragraph it nicer or didnt use any smilies..the whole point was 'yay damien's on the radio' [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

"O" is number 10 on the album charts and "Cannonball" is number 40 in singles in UK charts.

I heard the album version of Cannonball on Radio 1 today, a refreshing change from the remix.

I heard them say on 96fm that they are getting bucket loads of requests for the Cannonball remix every day!

Irish Top 5 Albums:
1. B-Sides - Damien Rice
2. Final Straw - Snow Patrol
3. Anastacia - Anastacia
4. Songs About Jane - Maroon 5
5. O - Damien Rice

Isn't Damo in a way going against all his anti mainstream ideals by releasing a radio friendly remix?


This is in no way a criticism, just an observation!

I've heard people saying they love Cannonball, buy O cos they thinks it's on it and hate the original version. It'll be interesting to see how many new fans this attracts. I don't know if Damien's "usual" music is going to appeal to all the Cannonball remix lovers.

The second album will... many people don't like 'O' cos it's too slow and quiet... the new stuff will really excite people!

I went to cardiff today (where I finally managed to get a Frames album!) And cannonball was being played everywhere, EVERYWHERE!!!!


Its really weird coz I've had O for well over a year, and I was the only person I knew who had it, but today I was walking through shops and people are there singing along to cannonball, its strange.[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]

yup the damien love is certainly spreading - my little sister tells me she heard it played this weekend by the DJ at our local nightclub here in thurles. if theyre playing it here in the middle of nowhere, at a club that usually plays crap then its definately a good sign of the times!
