Last week’s Top 5 was dominated by single-leaked-heaven – you know, those singles that leaked and were subsequently released early? Lady GaGa’s “Applause” and Katy Perry’s “Roar.” This week, it’s lookin’ a lot like a good ol’ country takeover!
1. “Young To See” by Charlie Worsham (country) – “Young To See” is Charlie Worsham’s 20-something anthem about taking risks – and living your life in the now – to reach for and achieve your dreams.
2. “Rubberband” by Charlie Worsham (country) – “Rubberband,” the title track from Charlie Worsham’s debut album is a contemporary country song that infuses a little life into the often over-bland world of country music.
3. “That Girl” by Jennifer Nettles (country) – Nettles takes a breather from her career as part of Sugarland to release “That Girl,” a single about not wanting dirty love – and not wanting to be “that girl.”
4. “Frames” by Lee DeWyze (alternative) – Didn’t Lee DeWyze win American Idol? How many years ago? Who is he? Exactly. His debut album under-performed and now DeWyze appears as an afterthought. Until now. DeWyze’s new album and new songs (including my favorite from his album, “Frames”) should ensure more success than his previous trial.
5. “Clouds” by Travis Garland (pop) – Travis Garland returns with a should-be hit pop song. His career should take off from this point. That is all.
