A new song I've heard was Darkness Round The Sun by Alez Johnson. A friend of mine Laina just introduced me to her. I love this song because of the way it's written and what it's saying.

I have an obsession with Taylor Swift and this gave me an excuse to browse through the songs I haven't heard. I know all of the Taylor Swift published songs and the unpublished songs are just as good. Check out Lucky You, from when she was a little younger, and I'd Lie, which I hope is going to get published. I like both of these songs because Taylor is country but she is pop country and all of her songs are new and very true. I love how she is what she is and she's true to herself.

The new song I discovered is Metric's "Help I'm Alive." It's super catchy with a great hook of "beating like a hammer" (seriously, you'll be humming it all day without even realizing you're doing it). I also like that they're headed by a female :)

Well I recently saw the movie Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist - and fell in love with the soundtrack. One of my favorite songs was Riot Radio by The Dead 60's. It's so catchy and I always get it stuck in my head after listening to it. If you like indie/alternative music you should definitely check out that soundtrack! (:

My sister in-law lent me her Enya CD, "A Day Without Rain." I like Enya, but hadn't heard some of the songs on that CD yet. Now "One By One" is one of my favorite Enya songs.

The new song that I heard is the Jonas Brothers song "Black Keys"...My best friend is a big fan and she really wanted me to listen. The song was slower than other Jonas Brothers songs that I have heard and I like the meaning behind it. It was touching and I can see why my friend is a big fan of theirs.

A new song that I heard is called Full Moon by The Black Ghosts. It's a song that I found on the Twilight Soundtrack. I like the song because it's fun to sing in the car (in the summer I tend to go on a lot of road trips).

My best source for new {ish} music is So You Think You Can Dance! My new favorite obsession is Winter Song by Sara Bareilles - it is so beautiful!

I just listened to a song that I had never heard by Clay Aiken. I don't listen to a great deal of music but I thought this was beautiful. It is called On My Way Here. He talks about seeing the best and the worst, that he would rather try and fail. That in the end it all works out On the Way Here. Wonderful words, great voice.

I always get new songs recommendations from my older brother. Half the time I don't like them but sometimes he knows what he's talking about. Today he recommended Paranoid by Kanye West. It's not my favorite but it is a pretty good song.

My fiance just told me about this song from a group called Hailstorm - a chick band I think, not sure. It's called I Get Off - which sounds a bit like a rock-ier Christina Aguilera song. I really liked it!
