I posted about her earlier, but now that her NINTH album is out, I'm going to repeat this. Sinead O'Connor, my favorite artist for as long as I've lived, is known pretty much in the older generation and those who were raised on her, in the States at least. It's called How About I Be Me (And You be You)?. My favorite however, is a song that was heard by many Americans, but not identified by many. From the movie The Waterhorse, Sinead sang Back Where You Belong, which played during the credits. It is a beautiful song, and I'm so proud of her!

Girl Talk isn't a recent song of Ultraviolet Sound's, but I'm putting it up for a few reasons. One: Their name is just so great, I've known I had to put them up. Two: This song is so true! I like songs that aren't necessarily about love, but are still relatable. So this song, which is very electronic, is, in my opinion, a great study song. Not a dance song, but more of something that's good for background.

BONUS: I already have five songs for my Swag List, i just want to give a short shout-out to Allison Iraheta and her song Friday I'll Be Over U. And to her great hair.

Shane Harper is releasing his debut album tomorrow! Not because its Valentine's Day, but because its his birthday. I especially love One Step Closer, but that tune is suspiciously familiar...Of course, the album is called Shane Harper since its a debut album, but Shane has some really great stuff going on, and I am pumped for this.

If you're looking for an artist with a beautiful voice, look straight at Yasmin.  I like her song Finish Line, and even though she could really do better song-wise, her voice is just so beautiful without being a ballad. So what can I say?

Swag list:
Pia Toscano - This Time
Aatyn Doyle - What It Takes
Nadine Coyle - Insatiable
Cheryl Cole - The Flood

Although they are a huge hit in the UK, they aren't even on the radar in the United States. I present, Cover Drive. I really like their name, though I have NO idea where they got it... but they are so good, that we'll pass by that! They're a Bajan group, releasing their first album, Bajan style, in 2012. So I am so pumped for that! Hopefully they will actually release in the US, because they are so good but still unknown here! And the majority of the listeners are here, so it would do them a good turn. My personal favorite of theirs reached #1 on the UK charts, is Twilight. And the best thing is, their voices are actually that good! Let's go Cover Drive!

Whoever likes Natalia Kills is sure to find love when listening to the unfortunately unknown Adam Tyler. His recent song Like A Drug is very similar to her whole style of pop. It's sort of dancy, and has a serious beat. The music videos are intense, but the music is way looser without the accompanying images, and deserves to be on the radio.

Swag List
Anjulie - Brand New Bitch
Enrique Iglesias - Tonight I'm Loving You
Jade Ewen - My Man
Kristine Elezaj - Warpath
Kayle - My Love is On Fire
