I'm always keeping my ear to the ground looking out and listening to as much music humanly possible. So, today, I'd like post my 5 HOT songs for the week.
1. Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake: Love Never Felt So Good
Taken from the upcoming Michael Jackson CD, Xscape, this is a brilliant disco song. Yes, you've read it - disco! It reminds me of MJ songs like Don't Stop Til You Get Enough and Can You Feel it. Magic!
2. Steyn de Wet - Maanligwandelaar
Local rising star Steyn de Wet suprises us with a brilliant song and video for his killer hit, Maanligwandelaar. The soft rock song is becoming a fan favourite at his gigs. WWE wrestling fans might enjoy this video as it features some nifty wrestling moments!
3. Coldplay: A Sky Full Of Stars
This sounds somewhat off, but it works. EDM hero Avicci playing piano on a Coldplay album, but hey, it's awesome! A Sky Full Of Stars, taken from the band's new CD Ghost Stories, is a club anthem wrapped in a deliscious Coldplay ballad.
4. Basement Jaxx: Unicorn (working title)
Electro UK outfit Basement Jaxx are one of the best live acts to see. They performed in South Africa a couple of years ago and they were AM-AZING! But lately, they've been a bit on the quiet side, until we heard this! Retro house filled with beats and dance soaked synths. Brilliant!
5. Kasabian: Eez-Eh
Seems like the rockers have gone back to their electronic experimentation that characterized their self-titled debut album way back in 2004 with Eez-Eh. A great tune that will have you humming along in no time.
