[Music]: Click to Play - Songs from Around the Web

One of the biggest reasons I spend so much time on the internet "doing nothing", is that I get carried away clicking on all the links within the posts.
I forget how I ended up on a page, because I was led there by a series of "read more" links...and then I forget what I was interested in in the first place.
Tumblr has been the main click-to-play culprit this past month, but I don't hate it: I have a few new "favourite songs" thanks to those reblogs...

Ziyon, one half of the popular Liquideep, has released a solo album, Audio Alchemy. The song One in A Million shows that he will definitely have the same success away from the group, but I don't believe that it's one of the best songs on the album. I can't wait to hear what comes next.


Goapele, whose 2001 single Closer is still a well-loved soul and R&B classic, is back with Strong As Glass. The album includes collaborations with Snoop Dogg and Eric Benet, and the title single is a trademark soulful ballad driven by bass guitar and Goapele's quietly powerful vocals.





Moving from soul and R&B to house/dance (because there is no logic to the click-to-play playlist...)
I have been intrigued by a lot of MNEK's remixes of the chart-topping hits of the moment - my favourite is this Bastille/Snap! mash-up.
The British-Nigerian producer, songwriter and singer (real name: Uzoechi Osisioma Emenike) is only 19 years old, yet he has already made quite a mark on the music scene in London and other parts of the world.
Wrote A Song about You is off of his upcoming and as yet untitled debut album is a testament to the Craig David/Luther Vandross modern-pop-with-an-urban-twist reviews he has been getting.


I now need to go and re-evaluate my life plans...

Here are two songs recommended by Sammi (aka The Beauty Crush) on YouTube:

Tove Lo - Stay High (Hippie Sabotage Remix)




This video is a little disturbing. The parts where she's in the club drinking and being groped in particular...but I think it's a fair representation of the aftermath of devastating break-up.


Destiny's Child - Say My Name (Cyril Hahn Remix)



One of the best Destiny's Child songs remixed almost to perfection.
