The second song from Bruno Mars we’ve featured on this site! We first featured “Marry You”, and now we’re featuring his first single from his debut album. This happy love song is simple yet it means so much to tell a girl that she looks fine just the way she is, especially in today’s world of super skinny supermodels and plastic surgery perfection!
Released in 1984, “Hello” went on to become Lionel Richie’s signature song. Most famous for its line “Hello, is it me you’re looking for?”. The wonderful slow piano music really sets the mood along with the powerful lyrics that truly describe how one feels when they see the one they love every day but he or she doesn’t seem to know they even exist.
Originally to be released on Akon’s 2008 album Freedom, “Hold My Hand” by Akon and Michael Jackson is an anthem like R&B love song. It’s really uplifting and powerful and it’s a shame that Michael Jackson passed away before it was fully complete and released in 2010. A handwritten note by Michael Jackson himself revealed that he wished for the song to be the first single released on his next [...]
A bit of a different love song today, Darren Hayes’ “Insatiable” is a song about a man who is obsessed with an actress. Well at least in the music video anyway, if you take away the music video and just listen to the lyrics, it’s a more adult orientated love song.

I stumbled upon this beautiful piece of music recently by Amel Larrieux (French I think it is). Her voice is so soft and soulful that truly brings the words of this song to life. If you read the lyrics to the chorus: Cause your eyes are the windows to heaven Your smile could heal a million souls Your love completes my existence You’re the other half that makes me whole [...]

Released as the second single from their debut album, “Stickwitu” is a slow, soft and down tempo song, taking a step away from their upbeat first single “Don’t Cha”. The music video shows the Pussycat Dolls travelling around on tour, and I can’t help but wonder whether this song was a dedication to their boyfriends to let them know that they [Pussycat Dolls] love them? Who knows Download Pussycat Doll’s [...]
