Last night, I was bored, so I just meandered around on YouTube, listening to new music.  I had read a lot about Katy Perry, and how she is supposed to be the “next big thing”, but I don’t usually follow what’s popular.  I’d seen pictures of her, and liked her retro style (even if she may be ripping off Zooey Deschanel).  But, in my curiousity, I typed in her name to see what all the fuss was about.  The first song I listened to was “I Kissed A Girl.”  I hadn’t ever heard it before, but I liked it.  The lyrics were stupid, but I liked the music and the beat.  It is a fun summer song that you can sing along to mindlessly.  I went ahead and listened to the rest of the Katy Perry songs that were posted.  It was very hit or miss.  Some I liked, some not.  I really liked “Lost” and “Broken,” but this one really hit home.  It’s called, “Wish You The Worst.” 

What are y’all diggin’, music-wise right now???  (And I mean other than Neil Diamond, Miss Penelope!)

    Jamie Lidell. His new album, “Jim” is amazing. It’s very Sam Cooke meets Jamiriqoui. He’s gonna be big – you can quote me on that one.

    I listened to some of his stuff off the “Jim” album. I really like “A Little Bit of Feel Good”. He’s great. Such a throwback sound with the instrumentation and backup singers. GROOVY! Thanks for your suggestion.

    I’m the quintessential 80’s chick. But I love me some Counting Crows. Adam says my music should be titled “Complaint Rock” because all the artists I listen to whine about their lives! HA

    Yeah, I’ve been listening to Fiona Apple, too.
