Will's Life Christmas Playlist

Last year I burnt a Christmas cd with mostly recent Christmas music on it, and I think that all of you will enjoy it. I have the songs on individual download for everyone so that they don't have to redownload songs if they already have them.

Here is the tracklist:
Poll Update!!!
First off, thank you to everyone who has voted. I'd like to get as wide of an audience for this as possible. So far, Gimme More is still in first with 8 votes. Umbrella is in 2nd place with 7 votes, and Girlfriend in 3rd with 6 votes. Potential Breakup Song is in 4th with 1 vote, and last, and most certainly least, Beautiful girl is in last with zero votes.

The Veronicas - Hook Me Up; poll update

This album has been around for a while, but I love it, so I'm posting it. The Veronicas's first album was a huge success, and its lead single was featured in the soundtracks of several movies including She's The Man. Here's their sophomore album, which has a slightly more electronic sound.

Download Album: Here

Download Everything (Bonus Track): Here

Download Insomnia (Bonus Track): Here

Poll Update!

So far, Gimme More is winning with Umbrella and Girlfriend tied for second. If you know people who are into music blogs and such, tell them to stop by and vote, because I'm trying to get a large opinion sample.

Single of The Year

Here's a new thing that I'm doing. Each week, I'm going to post a poll with about five singles this year that were reasonably successful. I'm also going to upload the singles for everyone to download and listen to before they vote. After each week, I'll take the first and second place singles and put them in another list with three other singles and let the voting begin. At the end of the year, I'll post the album of the artist with the most successful single on it.

This weeks entries:

Umbrella by Rihanna

Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne

Potential Break Up Song by Aly & AJ

Gimme More by Britney Spears

Beautiful Girl by Sean Kingston

Let me know what you guys think, and if you have any suggestions, let me know.

Within Temptation: Somewhere

A group with a sound similar to Evanescence, Within Temptation has been around for a while, but are less known. They have a few amazing songs here and there, and this is one of them. From their album, The Silent Force, the song Somewhere sounds out the most to me.

Britney Spears: Outta This World

Possibly one of the last Bonus Tracks from her album, Britney rounds it out nicely with Outta This World. It's not my favorite song from her, but it's far from horrible. I like it better than I like Why Should I be sad. Enjoy.

Download: Here

Cascada: What Hurts The Most video

I recently posted the radio edit to What Hurts The Most. Now the music video is out, and I love it. Enjoy!

Cascada: What Hurts The Most (radio edit)

Cascada is one of my favorite dance groups, and they are coming out with a new cd later this year titled Perfect Day. Anyways, their first single has leaked, and it's a cover of the song made famous by Rascal Flats: What Hurts The Most. Personally, this is amazing cover, and I'd listen to it over and over in a heartbeat.

Britney Spears: Blackout With Bonus Tracks

So, the Princess of Pop is back with an amazing cd. I have all of the songs up here to download invidually. I also have my reviews of the songs by them.
1. Gimme More: 4/5. Its her first single, and an awesome song. Gotta love it. Its catchy, its hot, and I love it.
2. Piece of Me: 5/5. Easy single material, this song goes on about her life and how she's been in the news a lot lately. Basically, she's saying, "I can take whatever it is you can throw at me." I love it.
3. Radar: 4/5. Another easy single. Its got a great dance beat to it, and can easilly be played in clubs anywhere. The only reason that this song is 4/5 instead of full points is that it can get old if you listen to it too much.
4. Break The Ice: 5/5. Slotted to be the second single, this song is HOT. It's my current favorite on the album. The only complaint I have about it is that they don't bring back the drum beat at the end of the song.
5. Heaven on Earth: 4/5. Still a dance tune, but not necessarilly quite like the other songs. This one isn't quite as slutty as some of the others. Its almost like a love song, dance style. I really like it.
6. Get Naked (I Got A Plan): 1/5. Not the worst song on the album, but close to it. It just gets really annoying after a while. Danja in the beginning is okay, and the background music is okay, but the whole song is just to Paris Hilton-y for me.
7. Freakshow: 5/5. Not necessarilly single material, and apparently, not too many people like it, but I love this Song. It is a little repetative, and it reaks of paris, but its upbeat, its fun, and even though the whole thing is computerized, its catchy, and great to listen to in a car.
8. Toy Soldier: 3/5. Again, not the worst song on the album. Actually, the chorus is the only thing that ticks me off. The whole synthesized snare drum thing just irritates me to no end. Everything else is okay.
9. Hot as Ice: 4/5. It is much improved after the demo, which was just irritating. This version is a half pitch lower, and just sounds better all around. Its uptempo, but can't compete with Freakshow. Still, its a good song.
10. Ooh Ooh Baby: 4/5. It's a Radar clone with acoustic guitar. Still, I like the song. Could easilly be a single, however, the same warning applies to this as does Radar: it gets old quickly, and since is sounds so similar to Radar, you get tired of them. Still, this one has some interesting things in it.
11. Perfect Lover: 4/5. I liked this song when it was released as a demo, and not much has been done to it since. It's a decent song, but definately not single material. Kind of like a better Get Naked really.
12. Why Should I Be Sad: 1/5. Possibly the worst song on the album. Honestly, it just annoys the crap out of me, I don't know why. Possibly because it sounds like a highly breathy Janet Jackson or Ciara. It's about K-Fed (pig), and there are so many other songs she could have done about him.
13. Get Back: 5/5. At first, I didn't like the song, but now I do. It is catchy, and an easy dance song. Honestly, this could have replaced a few songs on the album or be a single, but who knows. The demo of this song has undergone a slight upgrade, including a hot new intro.
14. Everybody: 4/5. As my brother said, the intro makes it sound like some bad 80's chinese thing, but whatev. This song is good, and was one of my favorites as a demo. Uptempo, and another dance song, I like it.
Overall Album rating: 5/5. Britney's done it again. She has an amazing album that will sell many copies.
