Coldplay - See You Soon

This is the best COLDPLAY song...the acoustic stripped back sound is AMAZING!!! I can't believe how many *really good* covers you can find of this on Youtube!! So many talented people out there: Well done!!

Mika-Happy Ending

So this would have to be one of the most surprising fav albums of the year..."disco bubble gum pop" isn't usually my thing but it's actually a pretty good album!

No favourite song I just picked this one cos hopefully that is how I am hoping my exam tomorrow will go ;) LOL...of course I could have posted that song "Relax(Take it Easy)...but if anything I think I have been waaaay too relaxed in my preparation for this exam :P

Massive Attack - Unfinished Sympathy


A little dated esp in terms of sound quality but definitely in my top few BEST MASSIVE songs ever...apparently the clip is directed by David Lynch...

The Church - Under the milky way

If you're not familiar with Aussie music(and this is a CLASSIC song), you might recognise this song from the movie "Donnie Darko", at least.

Feist - 1 2 3 4

Wow!!...Turns out this huge hit(Ipod Nano Song) on Feist's new album "The Reminder" is written by non other than Melbourne local, Sally Seltmann of New Buffalo(the one with the sweet voice)!!

I saw Sally play earlier this year at The Factory and I don't know if the crowd was really offputting or what but her performance was the most UNCOMFORTABLE I have ever seen...like she just wanted the ground to open up and swallow her...

When I first found out about her (courtesy of JB Hi-Fi mag) and heard her awesome and unique voice I knew she was something special...and promptly went out and bought the 2 albums of hers that were in stock...if she were an extrovert and bothered to really market herself she'd be a lot more well known by now!!
