La musique

Just thought I’d share some tunes that have been on my recent playlists. A little bit of Big Bang and Epik High satisfy my Asian music palate, but other than that, it’s been mostly Western. In no particular order:

T.I. ft. Young Dro – King On Set

Totally awesome beat. Random: Is T.I. out of prison yet?

Little Boots – Remedy

Little Boots is this adorable, instrumentally-gifted British newcomer to the mainstream scene. This one’s a pretty dance-y track. Her style reminds me of Lady GaGa, except with sufficiently less crack. Also check out New In Town, which I believe was her breakthrough single.

Jay-Z ft. Young Jeezy – Real As It Gets

Really liking Jazzy’s latest album, The Blueprint 3. My other two favourites are Empire State of Mind and D.O.A (Death of Auto-Tune). I think this track should actually be the intro on his album.

Boys Like Girls ft. Taylor Swift – Two Is Better Than One

Boys Like Girls is reminiscent of Good Charlotte and Sum41, so when I first heard their single Love Drunk (also the name of their latest album), it didn’t really appeal to me. But I am a sucker for this track. It’s like one of those slow dance songs they play in chick flicks.

Ashanti ft. Flo Rida – Let’s Do Something Crazy

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

This has actually been on my playlist since July, and I don’t know why it’s not more popular – I find it totally addictive.

Mariah Carey – I Want To Know What Love Is

Good to hear MC can still belt it out. Kind of a homage to her ballad days.

James Kinney – Therapy

This James Kinney guy just sort of came out of nowhere, but I do like the piano part in this song. Somewhat infectious?

Ke$ha – TiK ToK (aka Dolla)

Just a fun track, with fun lyrics. Yea, Ke$ha is the girl who did Right Round with Flo Rida.

Open your ears

This is not a review – it’s just some tracks that I’ve been listening to and liking lately.

James Morrison ft. Nelly Furtado – Broken Strings

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

I found this song very randomly, but it’s been on repeat on my playlist for the past two months. If you talk to me on MSN, I have probably tried to shove this song down your throat onto your hard drive.

Leona Lewis – Run

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

I love nearly all of the songs on Leona’s album, Spirit (which is very rare) because her voice is absolutely amazing.

Sarah Connor – Fall Apart

Here’s a more upbeat song (albeit somewhat angry).

Hayley Taylor – No More Wishing

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

I first heard this song at the end of Season 4, Episode 12 of How I Met Your Mother. It was love at first listen (?), so I Googled around and found Hayley’s MySpace. She’s an indie artist; at this point I believe her music is not widely available.

Mariah Carey – Always Be My Baby

Yes, this song is superrrr old, but I’ve re-discovered how fun it is. It always makes me feel happier :)
