Adele – Set Fire To Rain
There is something to be said about seeing a performer live – it brings the music alive and creates another dimension. This was the one song from her outstanding 21 album which has haunted me even more since seeing her at the ACC a couple of weeks ago. I cannot get it out of my head. If you see me on the TTC or walking down the street alone, this most likely is the song I am singing in my head.
Keren Ann – My Name is Trouble
This is probably the most poppy track off her sixth album, 101. I am loving her bowl cut. She’s currently touring North America and will be playing at The Drake Hotel on June 28th.
Kassidy -Stray Cats
There are very few bands which have come out of my home town of Glasgow that I haven’t gotten along with, Kassidy is no exception. These bearded hippy-looking lads are that perfect mix of catchy, folk-pop that I love.
Lady Gaga – Bloody Mary
I didn’t have high hopes when I first listened to Gaga’s second full-length album, but it is growing on me super fast as are Born This Way and Judas. (Darn her knack for writing such catchy tunes.) Surprisingly on first listen, I would never have guessed that Bloody Mary would have been the song that stood out for me, but I enjoy it, guilt-free.
Sia – You’ve Changed
I love this woman so much. She always creates some truly creative and unique videos. (Watch one of my faves, The Girl You Lost to Cocaine.) I saw her at the Opera House a couple years back and she’s coming to the Phoenix at the end of July. I cannot wait.
