Jesse McCartney – Crash and Burn
Speaking of Ms PosterGirl, she also had the inside track on Jesse McCartney’s bonus tracks, and after a brief “warming up” period, I’m right on board. This guy’s gonna be around a while.
Girls Aloud – Untouchable
Okay…who HASN’T been talking about the “abomination” that is the single mix of GA’s current single? The single mix doesn’t offend me…the sci-fi, low-budget video does.
Pitbull – I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)
Here’s one of my guilty pleasures, Mr 305, with potentially one of the big party records of the year as we move into the summer. The track may sound familiar to you, as it’s the same sample from Chicago used by the Bucketheads on “The Bomb”, but this version comes directly from “75 Brazil Street” by Nicola Fasano Vs Pat Rich.
Kings of Leon – Use Somebody
“Sex On Fire” finally got these boys on the map here in the States, but I am really hoping that “Use Somebody” gets them their first Top 40 hit (no doubt Melismatic agrees). Love this live version.
Madcon – Beggin’
I loved it last year when it was Top 5 in the UK, and I’m loving it all over again now that they’re making a run at the pop charts here in the US. Honestly, if Black Eyed Peas were still making fun records like this, I’d still care about them.
