#2 - Put On the World's Headphones [Jan. 17th, 2007|01:11 am]
Sugar Virus
[Current Mood |calmcalm]
[Current Music |Nevertheless - The Real]

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!!

Despina Vandi - Kalanta
  Currently #1 best selling single in Greece

Laura Pausini - Io Canto
  Currently #1 best selling single in Italy
Zero Assoluto - Sei Parte di me
  Currently #2 best selling single in Italy

Silbermond - Das Beste
  Currently #3 best selling single in Germany (there's a song called "Shame" by Monrose that's beating this one - and it's a shame, literally, cause their voices sound horrible)

Fatal Bazooka - Fous Ta Cagoule
  Currently #1 best selling single in France
Holly Dolly - Dolly Song
  Currently #5 best selling single in France (very catchy - you might have heard this song before)

Jan Smit - Cupido
  Currently #1 best selling single in the Netherlands
Frans Bauer feat Ali B Lange - Die Leipe Bauer Flavour
  Currently #8 best selling single in the Netherlands

Infernal - Self Control
  Currenty #13 best selling single in Denmark

Take That - Patience
  Currently #2 best selling single in the UK
Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars
  Currently #6 best selling single in the UK (gorgeous song)

Raghav - Lets Work It Out
  Currently #5 best selling single in India (note - India's charts are usually behind in music from elsewhere. Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" is the #1 best single over there for instance, while here's its been out for well over a year)

Eva Avila - Meant To Fly
  Currently #1 best selling single in Canada (Eva Avila is the winner of Canadian Idol)

Beyonce - Irreplaceable
  Currently #1 best selling single in the USA (This single is also #1 / #2 / #3 etc on many other countries' charts)

Papas da Lingua - Eu Sei
  Currently #1 best selling single in Brazil
Tania Maria - Se Quiser
  Currently #2 best selling single in Brazil


Mr.Children Shirushi single
  Currently #1 best selling single in Japan

KAT-TUN Bokura no Machi de single
  Currently #2 best selling single in Japan

Mika Nakashima NANA single (Hitoiro)
  Currently #4 best selling single in Japan

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!

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!

Boku wa kuma is such a terribly cute pv!!! I didn't really care for the song when I first heard it but after seeing the pv, I like it alot better & it fits really well! This is my first taste of YUI but I like what I'm hearing/seeing so far. I'll have to go search for more of her stuff. The #1's from 'round the world were hit or miss with me. Dolly song is super catchy & I'll definitely have to look out for more of from them as well. I already have Mika's single because I'm a huge 'NANA' fan but I don't really think this song fits the series. It just doesn't have that 'punk' feeling that I thought I would get from Nana O. I like Nevertheless but their sound is a little bland. Good lyrics though. I took just about everything so thanks! It was fun =^_^=
