On his recent trip to the G8 summit in Northern Ireland, David Cameron thought of another way to appear hip and in touch with society. What do we all give our friends as presents when we're a bit strapped for cash? Why, a carefully thought-out mixtape of course.

Except Cam-Dog's mixtape wasn't carefully thought out. Potentially taken from the line-up of a middle-class family-orientated music, literature and street food festival in sunny Herefordshire, he chose what could be some of the world's least likely candidates for "capturing the nation's sound".

Featuring bafflingly popular honky-voiced guitar strummer Jake Bugg, the James Blake for the uninspired Tom Odell, Birdy's version of 'Skinny Love' (why not the original, D-man?) and weirdly, Rudimental crowbarred in at the end, it's a family BBQ playlist at best and we'd be embarrassed to be Sarah C right now, smiling and nodding as each world leader grimaces, claiming "Oh yeah, 'Feel the Love'...I'm never going to get sick of that tune."

Thank god 'Tesselate' was on there - a small island of Oxbridge art-indie in the midst of the mire.

Stick to your war on the poor David, even Dermot O'Leary's got a better grasp on contemporary popular culture these days. Seriously - he had Snow Ghosts on two weeks ago. Stunned.
