Song: Life After You

Artist: Daughtry

In 2009, Daughtry released their sophomore album “Leave This Town” and with it, came the hit single “Life After You”.  Although the single was released in November 2009, my first time hearing it was only this past summer and immediately, it was added to my iTunes library.  What I love most about this song is the lyrics along with Chris’s lead vocals, they make for an incredible song.

Song: Haven’t Met You Yet

Artist: Michael Buble

This hit song by singer Michael Buble has been a top favorite of mine since I first heard it last fall.  While the song is not your typical “pop” song, its upbeat tempo and catchy lyrics will keep you hooked, along with Buble’s Sinatra-like voice, which I love.

Song: You Ruined Me

Artist: JC Chasez

In 2003, like his fellow band mate Justin Timberlake, JC began working on a solo album that was released in 2004.  Although the album was very popular with his ‘N Sync fans, Chasez’s solo effort did not become the instant success that many had hoped it would be.  About two years later, Chasez released “You Ruined Me”, which was penned to be one of the first singles off his second solo album “Kate”.  Unfortunately, due to lack of promotion and other issues with his record company, the album was never released, preventing Chasez from receiving the true recognition that he deserves as an artist.  “You Ruined Me,” which is rarely known by most music listeners and can only be found on YouTube or his Myspace page, shows off Chasez’s amazing vocal ability and his great talent as both a songwriter and a producer.  Like me, if you were a JC fan back in the days of ‘N Sync, I highly recommend checking out this song.  You will not be disappointed.

Song: Billionaire

Artist: Travie McCoy featuring Bruno Mars

When I first heard this song this past summer, I did not like it.  It was one of those songs that I would catch half-way through on the radio and turn off after a mere thirty seconds.  Eventually, when I finally heard this summer hit in its entirety, the song became an instant favorite.  “Billionaire” is one of those songs that can get stuck in my head for hours after listening to it and I do not believe that I could ever get sick of it…. well, maybe.
