Songs That I'm Diggin' Now

Lets start off with something great shall we?

Beyoncé - Run The World (Girls)

I gotta be honest, I kinda detest this song when I first heard it but damn, it has grown on me immensely. Those Jamaican influenced beats really got some wicked voodoo magic thingy going on. LOL. Too bad most of my peeps don't dig it as much as I do. The 1st song that I really like from Bey (apart from Irreplaceable) and suddenly everyone doesn't want to be on her team :( Did you see her Billboard Awards performance? MEGA. The goodies starts at mark 3:00.

And then I found out about this.
Major Lazer's Pon De Replay.

Swedish House Mafia's Save The World

Don't you love the doggies and puppies in the video? LOL. And it's strike no. 3 for SHM. I don't think they can do wrong in my book. One is mindfuck the 1st time I heard it. Miami 2 Ibiza is pure class. And now, Save The World is one of the best song I've heard so far this year apart from the really fantastic Calvin Harris' Bounce. (video below, gotta show him tons of love!)

The Strokes' Under Cover of Darkness

Heard this yesterday while I was channel surfing. And was hook by the time the chorus kick in. Something that draws me in. Great stuff.

The Decemberists' This Is Why We Fight

I don't get it at first but I decided to give it another go after J showin' some massive love for them. I love the lead singer's vocal in this, it's so laidback lazy but so powerful at the same time. No backin' out now. I am sold.

f(x)'s Pinocchio (DANGER)

Don't ask me what is this song about. I have no idea. I don't care about the lyrics. I just care about the highly addictive quality of this song. It got stuck in my head. End.

Nicole Scherzinger's Right There feat. 50 Cent

I am seriously beginning to warm up to her. And god knows how obvious she wants a freaking solo career during her PCD days. Don't Hold Your Breathe is a great pop song and this is surprisingly good as well. But seriously, what happened to 50 Cent? Anyway, she's more than half naked again in her video (what's new?) and I love the way she move her booty in the video. Oh la la~

Lady Gaga's Edge of Glory (Live on American Idol)

How great is her vocal in this live performance? Sometimes she doesn't need all the crazy dance moves to put on a show. Love it so much. BTW what's wrong with the Sax player? LOL. I love how she fall into "edge of glory" at the end of the performance. Sweeeet.

I'm with you on Run The World! It's a mess of a track, but a hot one.

The Edge of Glory. Basically amazing. I'm not exactly a Gaga fan but this song might change that. I just hope the sax interlude doesn't become a fad in pop music. I'd hate for it to get abused.

Yay! I influenced somehing! I just thought it was a great song from a great band that deserved more attention.

I still can't get behind that Beyonce song. It just sounds like reptitive racket. In fact I haven't really liked anything I've heard from 4, including Till the End of Time and 1+1.

Gaga's just doing everything perfectly.

@Kat It will be terribly stereotypical of me to say "One hot mess". LOL. And to my surprise, you're NOT a lady gaga fan before this? OMFG. Anyway, welcome to the club! :)

@J YUP! I am diggin' the Decemberists track each day.
Aw man, I am lovin' most of them! 1+1 is kinda endearing, Till the End of Time's military style thingy going on is pretty sweet. What is happening? :/ And I second your opinion about Gaga. Born This Way is definitely one of the best album this year.

@wwadh Hey, thanks for asking. I'm okay here. Just too damn busy with work these days :)
