I think I feature every song that Calvin Harris releases but, oh well. I like 'em.
Listen, I know it's not cool or hip to like Maroon 5 but I can't help it -- I love this song and it makes me smile like a goof when I hear it at the gym.
I've been a little under the weather today and it's nearly Wednesday, but before I forget, here's a super fun song by British popster Olly Murs.
Great Britain keeps producing stellar soul singers -- the late Amy Winehouse, Adele, Emile Sande, John Newman, Sam Smith ... I could go on, but here's the latest powerhouse voice, in a stripped-down version of her radio hit.
This was one of those songs I found by sticking my phone in the air at Starbucks and hitting the SoundHound app. Folk-rock was my jammmm! when I was in high school, so I know all about the musical pedigree of the Thompson family. British folk legends Richard and Linda Thompson are Kami Thompson's parents so it's no surprise that she's got the chops.
This song is all over the radio right now, and I haven't gotten sick of it yet, especially for walking at a brisk clip. I found a cool, live version of it from French TV:
So many good new songs stuck in my head this week! But I thought I'd feature the new Imagine Dragons song that was introduced during Sunday's Grammys.
This was me today. The weather was in the upper 60s and beautiful so I took the workout outdoors in the sunshine.
Heard this one last week while chilling with the teenager and a soy latte at Starbucks. I used SoundHound to find the song and was mortified by the name of the band, but I found this version of the name on YouTube. Super-chill song, perfect for a slow jog.
I've already featured the original version of this song but I stumbled upon a BBC Radio 1 video of Fall Out Boy covering the superhot song, and, hey, any opportunity to play this song! (BTW, BBC Radio 1's YouTube channel has a lot of great covers in its video archive.)
