Five songs for the week of June 7th, 2010

Cicada - Love Don't Come Easy
This band was a personal reommandation from none other than Scissor Sisters singer Jake Shears, mind you. As you could suspect he's a man of great tastes, as proved by this amazing song that's gonna stay in your head for quite some time I suppose...

Katie Melua - Twisted
While her new album The House is not entirely the sonic reinvention it was supposed to be, there are a few great tracks on it. Twisted is a dreamy mid-tempo marvel on which Katie's voice does wonders.

Christina Aguilera - Vanity
Now that you know what I think of Bionic (see previous post) I can confess my complete love for this song. It's silly, hopefully ironic and it's got at least 428 great things in it. The pom-pom-pom-pom wedding song thing is among them. If the shoe fits, wear it bitch!

Macy Gray - Kissed It
This awesome rocky track comes as a real surprise from Macy Gray, just as I wasn't expecting much from her anymore (was anyone?). I saw her perform it live and she did quite well, proving that she's not a lost cause just yet.

Gabriella Cilmi - Hearts Don't Lie
I know I already wrote about how much I love this Xenomania track, but as it is out as a single in the UK this week and it will bomb hard, I thought I'd remind you of how fantastic it it. Pop at its best, with killer verses and chorus. An absolute must-have for 2010.
