Sarah McLachlan is one of my favourite music artistes from Canada; one of the songs that I like from this multiple Juno Award winner, singer, musician and songwriter is: Fallen; which is, the first single from her album, Afterglow.

Back in 2003, Sarah McLachlan's Fallen, was at number 12 on Billboard's Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks.

Also, the following year (2004), Sarah McLachlan's Fallen was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the Grammy Awards. 

Here is her memorable video for Fallen. Enjoy!

I Love Jhené Aiko's "Spotless Mind"

I love Jhené Aiko's voice; it is so beautiful, soulful and soothing.

I also have to admit that she is one very gifted singer and songwriter.

One of the songs that I like from her is called: Spotless Mind; which is, one of the tracks from off of her debut album, Souled Out.

This PBR&B song of hers managed to climb all the way to number 24 on the US Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart.

Here is her video for Spotless Mind. Enjoy!

A Classic Jam From Donna Summer

The late Donna Summer was one of a kind; there will never be a singer quite like her again on the planet.

Also, the seventies would not have been the same without her; she was given the honorary title, Queen of Disco by her beloved fans.

One of the songs that I like from this American singer and songwriter is: Hot Stuff; which was the first single to be released from her album, Bad Girls.

Donna Summer's, Hot Stuff is, a lovely fusion of disco and rock (Which is, probably what makes it so interesting to listen to).

Back in 1979, Donna Summer's, Hot Stuff, was at number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

I hereby dedicate this song to all of those people who are fans of Donna Summer on the world wide web. Enjoy!

A Cool-Sounding Deep House Track From Sharam

In a past post, I mentioned my love for the deep house genre of music and many of you probably know by now, that I love electronic dance music.

Recently, a DJ based in Washington DC, that goes by the name of Sharam caught my attention; when I heard his deep house track, I had no choice but to pay close attention to it.

And, what deep house track of his that I am referring to?

The deep house track of his that I am referring to is called: August House.

What I like about that particular dance track of his is, the fact that it is simple and a DJ with a very creative mind can use the track's bass-line structure to create a remix of their own on the spot.

Sharam's August House is, one of those dance tracks that is perfect for playing at the beginning of an EDM set.

Also, it is nice to know that Sharam has associated himself with Spinnin' Records.

Here is the video for Sharam's, August House. Enjoy!

A Hot Classic From Katy Perry

I have been following Katy Perry's music for many years and I have to admit that her music is great.

Back in 2008, she released a track called: Hot N Cold; which is one of her fabulous-sounding singles from off of her second studio album, One of the Boys.

This pop song of hers was co-written by herself (Katy Perry), Max Martin and Dr. Luke; it was produced by Benny Blanco.

It doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to figure out that the song is, about an unstable relationship — one where the male counterpart is, the person going through those severe mood swings.

Katy Perry's, Hot N Cold was number 36 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, number 23 on the UK Singles Chart and number 13 on the Finnish Singles Chart.

Without further ado, here is the video for Katy Perry's, Hot N Cold. Enjoy!
