VARIOUS BITS AND PIECES:
Well, today seemed like a good day to mention some of my favourite new songs (albums), some that I'm really enjoying on the new iPod Touch and while driving in the car, so here goes.
Donkeyboy - Caught In A Life
This is a great album by Norwegian band who have been opening up for a-ha recently. Favourite tracks are: 'Stereolife', 'Ambitions' and 'Sometimes'. The video for 'Ambitions' is below.
Erik Hassle - Hurtful (Penguin Prison remix) . I really like this remix of a great track, audio below.
Fenech-Soler - Lies, video below.
Monarchy - Gold In The Fire. Not much seems to be known about this U.K. duo, like this demo quite a bit, listen to it on their MySpace page or below.
Nic Chagall - This Moment. Mia Michaels used this track for a Top 10 group routine in the season finale of 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada', watch below. Features the vocals of New Yorker Jonathan Mendelsohn.
Darin's cover of 'Viva La Vida' may not be everyone's cup of tea but I like the take on it and it sounds great cruising along the highway.
Imogen Heap's acoustic cover of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' is quite a nice take on the track.
Honorable mentions to Starsmith's remix of 'Bad Romance' by Lady GaGa, 'A Funny Thing' by Penguin Prison, Ola's 'Sky's The Limit' and Simon Curtis with his single 'Delusional'.
