BLOOMED: Spring 2008, Vol. 2
I've been bursting at the ears with new music for y'all to enjoy. Never before have I had to put out TWO compilations for spring, but here we are. From Madge to MIKA, I proudly unveil these must-downloads of the season...and if you're lucky, you may just get a live sample at this Friday's HOT MIX 2:
1. "Four Minutes" by Madonna featuring Justin Timberlake & Timbaland
2. "Hometown Glory" by ADELE
3. "Time After Time" by Quietdrive
4. "Fascination" by Alphabeat - I've become obsessed with this irresistible dancerock-pop group from Denmark. The beat echoes back to Bowie's "Modern Love," and the adorable video is a retro-tastic burst of Crayola-enhanced fun:
5. "Come On Girl" by Taio Cruz and Luciana - Sick beats from this R&B newcomer drive this juiced-up club track featuring the chick who lent her vocals to last year's dance hits from Bodyrox:.
6. "Denial" by Sugababes
7. "Love is Something" by Mozella
8. "Damaged" by Danity Kane
9. "Better in Time" by Leona Lewis - The latest from the belter who bled "Love." If she didn't get you the first time, let her hit you with her second best shot:
10. "The Heart of the Matter" by India.Arie
11. "Here's My Hello" by Blake Lewis
12. "If I Never See Your Face Again" by Maroon 5
13. "Something Good '08" by Utah Saints
14. "Delayed Devotion" by Duffy
15. "6 Of 1 Thing" by Craig David
16. "Tiny Dancer" by Marco Demark
17. "Stop and Stare" by OneRepublic
18. "Speakerphone" by Kylie Minogue
19. "American Boy" by Estelle featuring Kanye West - The British songstress develops a fondness for boys from across the Pond, and Mr. West is her groove guide through this funky jam.
20. "Shake It" by Metro Station
21. "Ching-A-Ling" by Missy Elliot
22. "Stuck in the Middle" by MIKA
It's one of the biggest music video tropes that's rarely explored in pop culture. The public laundromat has become a go-to loca...
When one nostalgically binges on all seven seasons of The Golden Girls like me (I swear I have a life), you pick up on a few things. C...
Earlier this year, when the trailer for the most recent Murder on the Orient Express remake was dropped, I was hoping that someone at 20...
