The last 15 of the best for 2010.

So continuing on from the other blog, here are my top 15 from the 30. I liked these albums. You should too. With the exception of the last two, the last 13 are in no particular order.

Matt Morris – When Everything Breaks Open. This former Mouseketeer (don’t hold that against him) was quite the surprise this year. This being his first major album, he left no stone unturned with how he felt about life, love, and the country. “Money” delivers the idea of how money doesn’t solve really anything and makes people turns the best to the worst. It’s a jazzy tune with a slight sample of a Lil’ Kim oldie but goodie. Nice job Matt. Then he can turn around and write a song called “Love” where he says “is plenty enough.” This is a grab bag of an album. Something for everybody. However the opening track “Don’t You Dare” is my favorite and quite possibly the weirdest song on the album. He’s a musician and a singer and a songwriter. But DYD is a loud percussion driving song with clashes and bangs and pops and machine sounding samples pushing him to overpower what’s behind him. It sounds like a Nine Inch Nails song honestly. And he delivers his voice hard with the banging and clashing. I didn’t know at the time that the rest of the album would be such a departure. But a good departure. When Everything Breaks Open is a great introduction to a singer who has many levels to him.

The Adventures of Bobby Ray. Yes. “Airplanes” was killer. Yes he salutes women in “Nothing on You” with Bruno Mars. But there is more to this album than that. “Ghost in the Machine” is a tale about leaving all that is behind because he’s tired of feeling like a ghost and no one notices him. And he wants the audience to see him and see what he sees. It’s really a beautiful song. “Past My Shades” illustrates to the listener that you might be able to understand his mind but never what is past his shades because he won’t let anyone really try to figure him out, a defense mechanism if you will. His eyes lead to his soul and he’s not ready for anyone to see past his shades. Perfect. “Kids” illustrates that kids will go wrong if they have nothing but negativity around them. They don’t stand a chance. Perfect. Very true. There is something for everyone here. Key Songs: the singles released, and the ones I just stated.

Local Natives – Gorilla Manor Heavy on the percussion, harmony, and good songwriting are the keys to a good album. And these guys have it. That’s it. That’s all I have to say. They have it. The drums draw me into every song. They keep it straight forward. Never stray away. Very good stuff. You an listen to this album and drift away. No complaints here . Very good indeed. Key songs: Airplanes, World News, Cards and Quarters, Stranger Things.

Buke and Gass – Riposte. I am always amazed when I hear heavy sounding music from just two people. It never ceases to amaze me. Bird and the Bee, Black Keys, and now Buke and Gass. I wonder if it’s because all the bands have B as the first letter in the name. No, just a coincidence I guess. But again, an album that delivers. Sleep Gets Your Ghost is a sing along boppy bop song. That’s the only way I can explain it. But it differs from the rest of the album. It’s chaotic sounding and it sticks in your head like flies to flypaper. It gets quiet in the middle of the song, and then takes off again. I love that. And the music is so want to break something. So does “Page Break.” There is some slow stuff on here which I won’t get into but it is also good. “Horse Head Nebula” sounds like something musically has gone awry with a screeching guitar beginning. It’s kind of funny actually. Check the whole record out and see for yourself.

Salem – King Night. I can’t even describe this album. It’s gothic. It’s electronica. It’s angry. It’s just weird. But I can’t stop listening to it. I’m going to let you all just listen for yourself. That’s all I can say about it. I tip my hat off to Sound Opinions in Chicago for the heads up on this one. Wow is all it left me saying time after time. Just. Wow. I can’t even pick a song. It’s just so..weird.

Underworld – Barking. For all the electronic heads out there, this album was pretty sweet. Underworld never really disappoints with the genre. It was good to hear vocals on this album too. I love elctronica but I would like to hear more vocals on songs. The challenge is to be able to find the right range for such a beat heavy bass heavy genre of music. So Underworld heard my prayers. Or read my mind. Most notably, “Grace.” Nice vocals. Nice beat. Simple. It’s a win win. No complaints here. My body gets chills in listening to “Always Loved a Film.” So so good. Makes my foot tap. I love how it builds in the first minute and then explodes into high energy 1:13 seconds in, cools down, brings the vocals but still doesn’t deter the listener. So so good. Key Songs: Always Loved a Film, Grace, Moon in the Water, Between Stars

Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Say what you want about Kanye. But his albums are just amazing. He is a great producer. A great great producer. He has made one of the most captivating sounding landscape albums of the year. I can’t stand to hear him speak personally, but man the music and the samples and the choirs he chooses are just absolutely breathtaking. The best thing about Kanye is that he knows he’s a prick. He says it in his lyrics. And he doesn’t really know what to do with himself. He has no idea what to make of himself but he’s not going to stop what he’s doing because of his attitude. It just fuels his fire and you hear it in the music. For that as an artist, I respect him totally. I just wouldn’t listen to him in interviews. But musically, keep it comin’. Key Song: MONSTER.

Tracey Thorn – Love and its Opposite. I’ll keep this short. Tracey Thorn has captivated my listening ears ever since Everything But the Girl. This album, like her previous solo effort, is recorded and executed in her own way. Smooth vocals stand out over the music. And so it should be. It’s a good album from beginning to end. Very minimalistic. Her instrument is her voice and it upstages every instrument she used in the songs. Key Songs: Swimming, Kentish Town, and Why Does the Wind?

Robyn – Body Talk. Surely anyone that has been heavy into dance music this year has got to know Robyn. She released three eps this year, with this last one, Body Talk, being a culmination of the other two plus new songs. I have to say it’s quite ballsy to do. But anytime a woman who was on the brink of stardom in the 90s hangs it up and disappears for many a year, come back and do well in the underground dance scene and now resurfaces in clubs around the country is definitely a star in my eyes. She pretty much could do no wrong. She is the perfect mix of electronica and pop. Your speakers will thank you. Your butt will thank you for shakin it like a polaroid shaker, and your ears will thank you for turning them on to her music. Key Songs: Hang with Me, Don’t Fucking Tell Me What to Do, We Dance to the Beat, Get Myself Together

Stone Sour – Audio Secrecy. Corey Taylor and his comrades make another quality rock album. Period. End of discussion. Move along… “Hesitate” is a standout to me. He really can sing and not just shout like many rockers seem to live by. It’s nice to hear some harmonies on a heavy rock album. “I see you but I can’t feel you.” Great line. There really hasn’t been a lot of rock albums this year that has grabbed my ear. And I think rock is definitely is kind of going through a blah blah blah moment. So when Stone Sour released this one, based on their track record, I definitely wanted to give them a good listen. And it’s good to know in the fake, autotuned, pro tooled way of music today there is a band that can bring it and still have melodies that stick in my head. Rock melodies at that. Key Songs: Hesitate, The Bitter End (killer drums on that one), Hate Not Gone

Dead Weather – Sea of Cowards. Jack White is just the man. He can play the hell out of a guitar AND a set of drums, as evident in this album. It doesn’t stray from the formula behind the first Dead Weather album. This second one is more of the same using Allison Mosshart as the driving force with vocals. It’s not a friendly album. It’s unapologetic. It’s loud. It’s dirty. It’s rock. And you won’t be disappointed. Key Songs: Hustle and Cuss, I’m Mad, Gasoline, and Jawbreaker

Janelle Monae – The ArchAndroid. This woman. What can I say about her? She is just amazing. This is a wonderful album from beginning to end. Janelle crosses many boundaries music wise and she feels like no one should be put in a nice little convenient box with a label. This album delivers and then some. It’s an album for the clubs. It’s an album for the headphones. It’s an album for your car. “Dance or Die” is a club banger. She sings so fast I have no idea what she is saying. And if you can leave me baffled with lyrics, than you’ve done something. She is definitely a force to be reckoned with and she carries herself with such finesse it’s wonderful. Women in the music business for the most part seem to conveyed as sex symbols with nothing to say. They just want to shake and shake and shake. Well Janelle shows them differently, never compromising who she is and the music she makes. Even the album cover is a throw back to the movie Metropolis. It’s a cover you don’t see everyday. Key songs: THE WHOLE THING

The Bird and the Bee – Interpreting the Masters, Volume 1. I will tell you what they are interpreting. Hall and Oates. And it’s good. I’m an H&O fan. Always have been. Don’t judge. They have more blue eyed soul in Daryl’s pinky finger than Justin Timberlake will EVER have. So I was very much on the defensive when I heard they had released this album. So I decided to cut them some slack and listen to them. And they are goooood. They don’t mess it up. They don’t overproduce it. The album is very dancey. And these two from B&B don’t try anything fancy. Her voice is very very whispery but not in an annoying Mariah Carey way. It carries the song as much as the music does. My favorite cover: “I Can’t Go for That.” So please, before you dismiss me with this selection, give it a listen. As much as I despise albums that are under 40 minutes, this is a perfect little addition at a little over a half an hour. Very easy to listen to and thumbs waaay up.

Big Boi – Sir Luscious Left Foot, Son of Chico Dusty. It’s a shame that this album sat and sat and sat and he had to go to a different label to get it released. But now that it has been released it was worth the wait. Big Boi brings some of his friends along for the ride of dance and clubbing. The one thing about Outkast that made them who they are was the music that was behind them. This album continues the tradition with heavy basslines and high hats. Mixed with Big Boi’s braggadocious lyrics, the album is a gem. My favorite line: “All the shit you rappers lack, we got plenty here’s a snack. Gon’ ruin their apetite cuz your shit is really wack.” Ouch. He knows how to get the booties shaking and is proud of it, especially in a song called “Tangerine.” I can easily see the dancers lining up for that one. It’s a shame Andre 3000 couldn’t have made an appearance (record label reasons). A particular favorite of mine is “Be Still” featuring Janelle Monelle. the chorus is sung at the beginning, letting Janelle bring in the listener slowly saying “never let it fall apart, be still my heart.” It’s a great song and quite the standout in the land of booty shaking. He’s not out to change the world. He just wants to make good dance rap music. Hats off to Big Boi. Key Songs: Be Still, Tangerine, and Hustle Blood

And my number two:

Black Dub-Black Dub. Daniel Lanois, producer extraordinaire (U2, Neil Young most notably..), has put together a fantastic album for the ears. It combines, r&b, rock, reggae/dub together all in one piece. Trixie Whitney is a Joss Stone soundalike  with a voice that is strong and relaxing. My ears continued to stand on edge, and my head continues to bop. It’s nothing over the top. It’s just a straight up vibe record where you can relax and chill out and do whatever come may. The album opener “Love Lives” is an r&b track where Whitney hails, “I wanna live where love is. Where’s the field where I can work in.” Don’t we all? The drums are loud and haunting thanks to the phenomenal Brian Blade. And Whitney harmonizing with Lanois is simple and sweet. I can listen to that song everyday. “Nomad” is easily a road trip song. “I may fall from this trapeze but I’m a land down on my knees..the way the nomad rolls.” Great line, followed by a guitar riff by Lanois. It’s an excellent album. Stellar in fact and I can’t understand why this record didn’t pop up on more lists. But it’s truly a great find. It WAS going to be my number one album. Until a tiny man with a big voice stole their thunder.

My number ONE:

Cee-Lo The Lady Killer. Yup. SURPRISE!! You thought I’d choose Linkin Park. Sorry but no. I LOVE my LP and all, but they didn’t make the cut this year. Cee-Lo holds a special place in my heart since he was in one of my favorite rap groups, Goodie Mob in the 90s. And you all probably know him as one half of Gnarls Barkley. But his solo album is absolutely one of the most catchiest sounding albums in years. He’s a singer as well as a rapper. This album he pours his heart out vocally. It’s almsot as if there are two Cee-Los.. One that’s the questioning rapper, and one that is the playboy stud charming women with that Al Green/Cab Calloway voice. All vocals. There’s more to this album than just “Fuck You” which is a good song, but there is so much more to him than just a Lady Killer. FU is a song about women who have broken his heart. He’s so passionate about his heart being broken and so upset, there is no other way to describe his frustration than to say “Fuck You.” And haven’t we all been there? I will say despite this song, this is an album for the ladies. He loves the ladies, and proves it in various ways. And he romances ladies. And in a time where women are not really put up on a pedestal in music, he makes a notion to change that. His voice is refreshing and inviting. He’s not trying to hurt anyone despite being called “A Lady Killer” he is a gentleman. One of the few. My particularly favorite song is “Bright Lights, Bigger City.” It sounds a lot like MJ’s Billie Jean in the beginning…except for LOUD LOUD synths. That just killed me, no pun intended.  And “Wildflower” a standout track in trying to show the value of woman who’s been hurt time after time. It’s wonderful. I won’t go on and on over every song. But trust me. This is a winner of an album. For a gentleman of a generation. Get it. NOW. NOW. NOW. NOW.

There you have it folks. My top 15 of my top 30. Quite the cosmic slop, no? Check two blogs back for the other 15. Have a great new year.

The First 15.

As I embark upon next year… new music… more space must be made on my pod, I started to think about what music really stirred my dandruff. And which made my juices bountiful. This year was a topsy turvy one for my tastes. Some cds I was wholeheartedly disappointed with and some were unexpected surprises. I have to say it was a rollercoaster. I managed to fill a 120 gig AND a 160 gig ipod and I still yearn for more. It’s quite frustrating to have to delete some artists. You kind of feel like you are cheating on them with others. But it has to be done. Playlists were made way too much this year. And I have a schitzophrenic way of listening to music. I must listen now now now and if I don’t have it, I must get it. So needless to say to go back and make a list of standouts is really really hard for me. REALLY. HARD. Sometimes I go by beats, sometimes I go by musicians and vocal ability, sometimes I go by melody. But if you stick in my head for more than a day, you’re pretty much made it in my pod for an infinite amount of time. Rock has never been more cheesy this year. R&B yo-yo-ish with vocal gymnastics being used instead of singing. Country shouldn’t have been called country but more so pop rock, and rap was just meh with the exception of a few which you pretty much KNOW. Shouldn’t be a shocker. But here is my list of Everything Music for 2010:

And these are in no particular order…except for #1. So when I backtrack they are listed numerically but really they aren’t for any particular reason. I just wanted a top 30.

Keri Hilson – No Boys Allowed. What a sneaky chickie this one is, making her way on my best of at the end of the year. But I commend you Keri for displaying positivity in your music. A lot of women don’t. And no I don’t hate you because you are beautiful. I commend you. You all should support her. She’s the perfect package – she sings, AND writes her lyrics. Imagine that. I know, it’s hard in the world of ghost writers and all. Her beats are on point too. Get it. She has the club songs, the hip hop beats, and the radio friendly tracks. Key songs: Pretty Girl Rock, Lose Control/Let Me Down, Hustler, and Won’t Be Long

The Black Keys – Brothers. These guys can do no wrong. With their scratchy chord progressions, to Dan’s falsetto mixed with the drums, you think they come from the south and they don’t. Ohio is their claim to fame. But their music has been consistently good for years now. Brothers is the icing on an already well orchestrated band. I don’t think there is a bad song on this cd. “Everylasting Light. Next Girl. Tighten Up. Black Mud, Howlin’ for You is a standout as well as Too Afraid to Love You, a slow mover with organ music that could easily pass for a creepy song in a vampire movie that doesn’t have Kristen Stewart in it. Trust me, these guys are the real thing and they are music to my ears. Key songs: The whole damn album.

Toby Mac – Tonight. Christian Music has always been weird for me. I have trouble listening to people sing about a God that I question. BUT this guy. Toby Mac. His album Tonight, is a very uplifting gem. God isn’t mentioned just so you know. But he is a ray of sunshine in a world of music that is just bad. He’s not about spreading the word like many Christian artists. He’s just about spreading positivity, trying to help out people who kinda sorta down in the dumps, ie ME. So anyone who can try to spread a little joy without it being over the top is fine with me. And while I’m at it. This is a party record. You can play most of it at a party and you don’t even KNOW what he’s really getting at because the beats are so loud. I leave listening to his album with a smile on my face. And I’m sure that is what he wants. Key songs: Tonight (loudest rock/dance song ever), Captured, Changed Forever

Caribou-Swim. This is a dance record. Very much a departure from the previous Caribou record. I used to not be able to make heads or tails of this band. You have to be, or I have to be in a certain mood when listening to this band. But nonetheless this album has such an overwhelming feel of atmospheric sonic landscapes that you just have to sit back and listen and dissect. Every song is intriguing, taking you on a trip through an imaginary world of sound and rhythm. It’s really just a cool record. From the opener which could easily be in a Guy Ritchie movie,  to Leave House, which could easily be in a Volkswagon commercial then ending in Jameila, which is…just..amazingly good. Take my word for it. Even though I always cringe when I purchase an album with 9 songs (Why not ten guys really? How hard is it to add another song?), this one was pretty much a well received album from start to finish. Key Songs: Jamelia, Odessa (PS..check out Caribou’s remix album. JUST as good.)

Beach House – Teen Dream. No, not to be confused with Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” but Beach House. This band makes me so relaxed. Every song eveeeery song is just a mind fuck but a good mind fuck. My favorite song has got to be “Norway.” It’s just so beautiful. The whole ablum is a beautiful mind trip of peace and tranquility. I don’t think I have ever been so in love with an album before. I can’t believe there is great music by this band, and so many many people haven’t even heard of them. It’s a travesty. Yet auto tuned nitwits can hit the top of the charts. It baffles me. THIS is the band that should be nominated numerous times at various award shows. Teen Dream is a clean sounding record. There are no gimmicks. Just swooping strings, pianos, organs, and beautiful vocals. In my book…an A. Key songs: Norway, Lover of Mine, Walk in the Park, Real Love

Superchunk – Majestry Shredding This album is definitely a return to crunchy guitar rock form. They took a long break after the last album. And I can understand why. They wanted to get this down pact. And they did. I particularly enjoy listening to “Digging for Something,” “My Gap Feels Weird,” and “Winter Games.” Three killer tunes with loud chompable rock that can be blasted from the car to the stereo. It’s a great trip from beginning to end. I find the song “Hot Tubes” humorous simply for the “Ohhhh. Yeaaaah” that is kind of on the emo tip in the way it’s sung. But overall it is a good solid comeback from a band we all missed. Key Songs: …oh just pick one and listen for yourself:-)

Memomena – Mines Let me say first off this is a weird band. It’s just bizarre. The beats are like annoying ticks that stay in your head even when you are doing something as simple as taking out the trash. I find myself humming a tune or two. It’s a cosmic mess, with dance beats and interesting little quirks that you don’t listen upon the first listen but moreso like the 10th. You hear something new and intriguing each time. With the song “Sleeping Beauty”, you hear a guitar riff over a very bizarre swirly sound effects. The drumbeat is minimal at first, but 3:45 into the song there is a resounding clash effect. It’s just bizarre but I can’t stop listening to it. “Dirty Cartoons” makes it’s living by just an acoustic guitar and the lead vocalist singing with ever the hint of a piano and a heavy bass beat and drum beat. Very simple yet definitely heavy. The contrast of music in the songs is overwhelming, but worth a listen. Key Songs : Dirty Cartoons, Queen Black Acid, Five Little Rooms, and Sleeping Beauty

Vampire Weekend – Contra. I feel like this album got slept on this year. Everyone went so bitchcakes over the first one, and it was good. I’m not saying it wasn’t. This album finds more of the same. I put it on the list because it’s a simple album. It’s not over the top. It’s not laced with auto tune and sampling. It’s simple. Despite the fact I hear “Holiday” in not one but TWO commercials, it is a decent and solid album. And that’s all I have to say about it. It’s just good. Is it fantastic? No, but if you want an album to relax to and just chill out, then this one is a fine selection. Key Songs: All of them

LCD Soundsystem – This is Happening Aaah yes. James never lets us down. It’s a solid release. After a hiatus, James and the gang return in a BIG way. The opening track, “Make Yourself Clean” is just his voice with a series of tapping and little drumming. It’s cute. It’s welcoming. There’s even a chant. THEN. A little over halfway through the beat completely changes, noise comes to the surface and it makes you want to stand up and take notice. The first single, “Drunk Girls” could easily be a throwback to the 80s with a synth beat and cowbell. And c’mon, who doesn’t love a cowbell?  “I Can Change” is the LCD Soundsystem we know and love. It’s a dance song that is semi upbeat with the high hat playing an important role in getting my foot to tap. It’s a winner. So is this cd. Nice job guys. Key Songs: “Drunk Girls,” “One Touch,” and “I Can Change”

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings – I Learned the Hard Way. It seems like Sharon came from out of nowhere when in actuality Sharon has been rocking around for many a year. But she herself is an event to been seen and not just heard. This album gives you just a taste of the goodness in music that I LOVE. Her voice reflects joy, rock, the struggling, and the love of human emotion. Sharon has the kind of voice that can lift you up when you’re down and then make you pay for dinner later lol and you’re willing because she is just. That. Powerful. The title track is filled with regret and pain but triumphant in the end. The Dap Kings stand on their own for sure. This could be a two cd with instrumentals and one with her vocals. “She Ain’t a Child No More” is a song about a young girl who has been forced to see things and experience things that no kid should have to see. Without A Heart, despite the title, is an upbeat song about no matter what you have, if you don’t have a heart, you have nothing. This woman. With that band. Can do no wrong. It’s like a revival you don’t want to leave. Key songs: Title Track,  Give It Back, Money

Trombone Shorty – Backatown Jazz has never been a great thing for me. It takes a lot for me to sit down and listen to a jazz album. But this one has completely changed my mind. This is truly a gem of an album. It sucks you in from jump with the song “Hurricane Season.” It is a fast paced uplifting horn treat. There is no way no one can not dance to this. It sounds like it could easily be heard in a movie somewhere during a chase sing. “Something Beautiful” is a song with Lenny Kravitz, one of a few collaborations but this song is just what it is called.. something beautiful. From the lyrics, to the melodies, everything. Just beautiful. “Backatown” is heavy on the organ and percussion, but that is a good thing. I swear this man is the real deal. “Neph” focuses on his skills alone and he doesn’t disappoint. Another toe tapper. Trust me when I say, and this is coming from someone who doesn’t listen to a ton of jazz–GET THIS ALBUM. NOW. The WHOLE. ALBUM.

The Drums – The Drums This band is definitely an 80s throwback to synths and just dancey pop rock. Most notably the song “Me and the Moon.” “I Want to go Surfing” is also a 60s throwback. It’s just nice good music to pass the time to listen to. It’s fun. And music is missing fun. They sound like a culmination of Duran Duran, English Beat, and Tears for Fears. They make simple songs and like to rock out. Where exactly are the minuses here? None really. It makes me want to grab a tambourine and join with them. “We Tried” is a song revealing the attempts on making a disasterous relationship work over a curling guitar lick. “The Future” is quite a double take song because the lead singer sounds like a dead ringer for Morrissey. Basically. A win win. Key Songs: Whole Album

Crystal Castles – II. This is just a continuation of the first album, also called Crystal Castles. They didn’t really consider it an album so this one arrives as a complete piece. Well they don’t disappoint. Don’t be distracted by the first track, Fainting Spells. It’s a song with no shortage of screeching yells. I know, I was annoyed by it too. But the song rescues itself by the hip hop beat. It was quite a relief to the ears at least. This album is a lot like the first, complete with a cover of a Sigur Rios song, “Years of Silence.” This was a pleasant surprise with Jonsai’s voice. It is a dance track, no dobut, but with Jonsai’s melodic voice, it adds to the greatness. It’s a crazy album with dizzying sounds, heavy bass, screeches, quirks, and twists and turns. But I loved every minute of it. Key Songs: Years of Silence, Baptism, Suffocation

Eminem – Recovery Well this certainly is a comeback. His last album, Relapse, was just a mess. It lacked focus and was more of the same. If I had to hear ONE MORE song about his mom I was going to scream myself. With Recovery he gets it right. It truly was a recovery. Sober and clean, he returned with a mind focus on reclaiming what made him a household name from jump. Not Afraid was his I’m back calling card. His album is a perfect culmination of street smarts with smart pop, utilizing Rihana and Pink in “Love the Way you Lie,” and “Won’t Back Down.” It’s a great pop rap album and something that was truly missed from him. He even pays tribute to his best friend and comrade Proof who was unfortunately gunned down “You’re Never Over.” He was wearing his heart on his sleeve and the fans ate it up. Em, welcome back. Key Songs: Seduction, Cold Wind Blows, Not Afraid, Cinderella Man, and Talking to Myself

Sade – Soldier of Love. Oh. My. Gurd. Sade is the only person…the only person who can go away for more than half a decade and come back and sell out the wazoo. Her voice is angelic. And this album is no real departure. She sticks with what she knows. Minimalistic music and let the voice do the job of luring the listener in. Her voice is just sweet and quiet and silky and smooth. It’s been missed over the years. Her first single, the title track, was really a departure with the amount of percussion that is used but it worked so well with how her voice delivers. The producers don’t try and over do it with her style. Less is more. Again, a real gem for those who want to know how REAL singers do it. She brought it and then some. It was a very nice comeback. Key Songs: The Whole Damn Album

Well, that’s the first 15… still want the last 15? Stay tooned. More to come.
