Well 2007 is a new year after all. So it's time to experience new things! I couldn't think of a better fit for this month's rotation than to expose you all to the newest, most current music. But if it were all from the US or Japan, there'd be no point... So these songs are all NEW, but what's more is they stand out as the most popular in their respective countries right now, currently. These are the world's CURRENT best-selling singles. Enjoy!!

Currently #1 best selling single in Greece
Laura Pausini - Io Canto

Zero Assoluto - Sei Parte di me

And now... THE MUST DOWNLOAD OF THE LIST!!!
Nevertheless - The Real
This isn't a best selling single, but it is a new release from a new artist. Besides the obvious amazing, catchy music, this song has great, uplifting lyrics, which is refreshing, cause to be honest I'm SO TIRED of hearing about how you're too good for your ex-boyfriend and how your ex-girlfriend played you in lyrics. I really think everyone who downloads this will be pleased they did. It just has an all-encompassing sound that everyone will dig.
New PVs for Grabs!
L.M.C. - OH MY JULIET
There's another song / video I like very much with this same title! But it isn't new. So sticking with the new theme, this is a new release from L.M.C. As you can see it's just L.M.C. rocking out!! This song's fun and I like videos with good, solid rocking out, but this one has the perks of good, solid rocking out + fab editing.
Utada Hikaru - Boku wa Kuma
This is a song about a bear, literally. Boku wa Kuma translated is "I'm a bear." This is a such a cute video. Lets pretend the bear is the Snuggles (that laudy detergent?) bear and he's starring in Utada's video. I have to share this because the cuteness of it all demands me.
YUI - Rolling Star
So far I like all of YUI's videos. They're very escapist and each have their own flare (Life moves fast, Rolling Star moves both ways). In this video objects around YUI will move in slow motion, or YUI herself, and then suddenly move fast and pumping with the music. This PV has an all-encompassing awesomeness to it both in style and song, so, I think everyone will genuinely enjoy it.
That's it for this rotation! Next one will be Valentine's Day themed (to an extent). Remember, it's not required that you leave a comment with what you take. I'm more interested in knowing if you liked the music! Leave me a comment if you liked something! With this rotation, it was important to remind listeners that not all music is American or Japanese. If you're willing to listen, good! If not, that's a very bad habit and I'm afraid you're depriving yourself of really good music. Also, if you've liked the last two rotations, please spread the word about Sugar Virus! Thank you!
