  1. Is “Green Light” still the John Legend single being pushed? Great song, but it’s taking a little while to take off, no? Well, still quicker than “Just Dance,” I guess. Have you heard the album? I’m not sure whether to get it or not.

    “Rehab” is infinitely better than “Take A Bow” (for me)–I would’ve much rather been forced to listen to that on the radios all summer.

  2. Oh, wow, I’ve only just remembered that you said the whole album was great–I knew I’d heard it that from somewhere. OK, put it on the to get list for next Tuesday…

  3. Lady G’s album does come in quite respectably after being leaked (lewdly) all over the inna’nets. I wonder how much steam the single’s going to have since it’s been on the chart forever it seems? In any event, “Just Dance” is probably the best song other than the title track so perhaps Top 10 is not so crazy, eh?

  4. I can’t help but think that Lady GaGa’s album would have done MUCH better if it would have been released many months ago; as planned. Especially after they know it leaks, I wonder what makes them wait so long to finally release it? Oh well, I BOUGHT IT!

  5. Aidan, thanks so much! Glad you found us, and I’m even more glad you like what you found.

    Ah, Poster Girl. It’s like you were implanted with the musical taste of gay men from all over the planet. I will warn you that I’ve talked to a couple of people who loved Legend’s first two CDs, but aren’t crazy about this one. So I’d scope it out first. And “Rehab” is a quality song, even with the gratuitous Justin bits.

    Paul, I will now refer to you as “my muse”, because I’m going to take your advice and run with the “shoulda been a hit” feature. How much do I owe you?

    Yuri, it’s got a shot. Never say never, and all of that. I’m just wondering if it’s a coincidence that GaGa finally starts climbing the charts as her label president Akon hits the airwaves in a big way with his new record. Coattails, perhaps?

    Duane, you’re probably right, although the label seems to have known how to set up the single quite nicely. Kudos to them for positioning some decent bonus tracks on the different international releases, too.
