I know Dan made his post about Lady Gaga the other day, and it received mixed reviews--naturally. Personally, I don't like her voice, but some of her music is good. I just thought that, while the door is open, I might introduce you to some Pop music that actually deserves your attention. Those of you from Norway probably already know of it...

Donkeyboy

You're probably having a difficult time getting past that name, but give this Youtube video a view. I can't imagine everyone here disliking it. Some most definitely will, maybe even most of you, but I'm certain someone else will probably appreciate as much as I do. Their album, "Caught In A Life," is constantly played through my speakers, and everyone I've recommended it to loves it.

This is their huge hit:

Yep, with some unknown Canadian Pop singer. While I've been enjoying this track, I hope they don't go too mainstream with their future material.

The latest album, Lost, dropped a few months ago, but it took me a while to get it. It's definitely the weakest of the three albums, but it still has some great tracks.

 

Dollar (love this tune!)

 

Triggerfinger (we all know this one by now)

 

Crazy Something Normal (the other single from years and years ago)

 

Smooth Lover (I love the Trop House vibe in this one)

 

Look Inside

 

Rocket Gave the Sky to Her

 

Downtown

 

Hero

Just for a While (this is easily the song I like the least, and the only one I might skip)

 

Lost (I love that they always close with a melancholy track, and this one does not disappoint)

 

Overall, the album is too short, especially when you factor in that almost half of these tunes we've been listening to for years already.

I'll have to listen to some of these newer tracks to see if they pique my interest further.....just something about them that's not that appealing. Some songs were ok...some were just not...lol I dunno....

Oh.

 

I would have thought the first album would be most appealing for Synthpop fans.
