I am an equal opportunity listener (well, kinda)

I'm always up for hearing the latest and greatest music from across the pond. Agnes is by no means NEW, she is just new to me! She's like Shakira but a tad less annoying because she doesn't shake her hips 99% of the time. Anyhow, she's from Sweden, and I love this song. One last fun fact, she won Swedish Idol in 2005. Enjoy!

It's a small (boy band) world afterall

Last night on American Idol, a guy named Travis Garland performed. Most people were probably like, "Who?" but let me tell you! Travis Garland used to be a member of the boy band NLT (stands for Not Like Them (boybands), i.e. not like Nsync or not like the Backstreet boys, haha and not successful like them either apparently). Anyhow, I don't mean to rip on NLT because they actually can sing but singing, dancing, boybands are just not gonna happen right now. Anyways, NLT went on this tour with V Factory and Menudo and my favorite band ever, Mark & James were the hosts of the tour. So I knew of Travis only through my love of M&J.

First Vid: Travis is singing "Karma" (a song I really like), Mark is on guitar

Second Vid: Travis doing a clever boy band melody, James on guitar. Glee fans, recognize Kevin (at the end) ? I bet 99% of Glee fans don't even know Archie was in a boy band. And it's sad to me because if you check out video 3 (below 2) you shouldn't have someone who can dance so well play a character confined to a wheelchair. Just sayin.

The Official Karma video: If you're the impatient type, you can skip the first 50 seconds as it's just dialog.

The Band Perry

I am so excited about this new band. I love the lead singers voice. I love their unique songs that they write themselves. I love it all, well, except the hairdos of the guys, but I am assuming that once they become more successful, they will be forced to conform with a less horrific hairstyle and sadly this will make me happy.
