I never thought that 2006 will have another refreshing pop masterpiece after Corrine's Put the record on!! The lyric is quite clever… the tune is very different from what I've heard before. The single is not out in the UK yet i think… I heard it on the radio for the first time ever today.
Apparently this single was released in 2005 and it was unheard of. Now its back and it will chart in the top 5!!!!
Quote from amazon.co.uk:
From the Label
The girl that webcast from her basement in Tooting to thousands of people across the globe now releases her debut single ‘I wish I was a punk rocker (with flowers in my hair)’. Too broke to go on the road, 24 year old singer/songwriter Sandi Thom decided to set up a webcam in her South London flat and staged a three week world tour from the basement. She spread the word about the ‘21 Nights from Tooting’ tour via Myspace.com and her own site, inviting fans to watch the tour live on the web or in person at the very modest underground venue of her basement. Pulling in an audience of 70 on the first night, news of the gigs spread like wildfire on the internet and by the end of the ‘tour’ she had 100,000 web viewers from as far afield as Russia, the USA and Pakistan.
Drawing on a musical palette that varies from Bob Dylan and Jeff Buckley through Carole King and Stevie Nicks to Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin, Sandi Thom joins the dots between black and white music. The album Smile… It Confuses People seamlessly blends folk and soul strains and influences

Gosh, Ive been a big fan of Conner since his classic Earthbound LP.. he's just fantastic.. the vocal thrills and the emotions in his songs… this new effort from him is absolutely fabulous!!! Very soulful and it features his falsettos. Its a must buy.. i bought mine off amazon but am sure you can get it from Virgin megastores under new releases. Hope that he will stay for good this time… and by the way, he's been writing for the likes of Joss Stones and Tina Turner.
You can hear the single: oughtabealaw, on this link: link

Being a fan of the ever so clueless Mariah since her first ever album, I'm utterly happy that she makes it back to the top of her game. Being the best selling female artist in 2005 proves that in what ever situations you're in, you just have to believe that God will bring you through. She did it and it is very inspirational.
This new edition of the multi-platinum album includes 4 new unreleased songs. Don't forget about us – uses the same We belong together formula and hey, who's complaining!! Making it last shows that Mariah can still groove like her Fantasy era.
Ive bought the first release of this LP but I will get this one as well.

Thanks to AOL..I am able to indulge in this new release from the Queen of Reinvention. If you are into her Ray of Light album, which I think her best album yet, you will love this album. The main concept is dance but some of the tracks are beautifully haunting and poppish rather than hard core dance.
If you dont fancy her first single Hung Up, dont fret. This album is quite eclectic in the Dance sort of way. I have a few favourites on this album:
1. Isaac – beautiful… absolutely haunting. Its a cross of Enigma and Frozen. And the Yemen singer featured on here is wonderful. Well done , Madge!!!
2. Push – Its like having Kylie's Fever track on the Fever album. Its totally different from the other tracks… very poppish and catchy. The chorus reminds me of Like a prayer.
3. Like it or not – my third favourite – sounds a bit like Goldfrapp + Garbage.
Some of the tracks such as Future Lovers sound like Ray of Light, Erotica and Justify My love. Get together sounds a bit like Kylie's Love at First Sight. Nice to see Madge back to her dance root.
Madge will definitely go far with this album!!!! I hope that she will release Isaac and Push.
