On The Floor

Back to the sound of the 90's with J-Lo with the release of On The Floor which features Pitbull doing what he does. Jennifer Lopez was never a stranger to using a sample of an older song in her own singles and I can't decide whether I like On The Floor in it's own right or the fact that the original song that it samples; Lambada by Kaoma was actually a very catchy song back in 1989. How could it be 22 years old!

Stan Walker

Stan Walker won Australian Idol in 2009. His debut single was Black Box which was a number one in New Zealand and it got to number 2 in Australia. He has had 4 other solo singles since then but this is the one I like the most.

Stuck Like Glue

Stuck Like Glue by Sugarland has been around for months now but I only discovered it recently. The video always makes me smile.

Getting Nowhere

In 2010 Magnetic Man had two top 20 hits in the UK chart. I need Air got to number 10 and the follow up single Perfect Stranger made it to number 16. Their newest single Getting Nowhere features John Legend on vocals and is released in February. John Legend has had three UK top 40 singles, the most successful being Ordinary People which got to number 27 back in 2005. The video to Getting Nowhere is one of the more interesting ones released at the moment. It also reminds me of the nuns in the 70's TV series Tales of the Unexpected.

Back To Old Fashioned Pop

The single version of Alexis Jordan's Good Girl is very good pop indeed but the Freemasons remix makes it even better and that made it my favourite song of all week. I was too tired to post my chart yesterday evening so it made me smile to see both the video and Freemasons mix featured here on Popjustice this morning. I do hope her record producers don't decide to send her down the Rihanna/ Ke$ha road in relation to both her music and image. Other songs that caught my interest are Going Nowhere by Magnetic man featuring John Legend and The Last Dance by Clare Maguire. I'm already bored of Britney's Hold it Against Me but I think On The Floor by Jennifer Lopez could become one of those songs I'll either love or hate. I dislike Pitbull with a passion and I think the song would be better without him.
