1. Christina Perri
I first heard of Christina Perri on "So You Think You Can Dance" almost two years ago. My best friend and I watched the dance and instantly asked each other, "Who sings that?" It was such a hit that the producers brought Christina Perri in the next week to perform "Jar of Hearts" live. She was amazing. Her album "Lovestrong" is filled with some powerful songs, including The Lonely, which I've linked to below.
"Two am, where do I begin / Crying off my face again..." Yup, that about sums up last Aug/September for me. No worries. I'm better now. :)
About the same time I bought Christina Perri's album, I also heard this song. I couldn't figure out who sang it or where I could find it. I remember waiting for the song to end on the radio one morning when I was already late for work in hopes they would say the name of the song, or better yet, the artist. I scribbled down a note that said "Look up Poison and Wine" and the rest is history. The two artists who make up The Civil Wars have such amazing harmony with a dose of bluegrass that it makes me feel like maybe I could someday sing. Don't worry, I can't. But I like to think that if I someday was graced with the talent, I'd sound like them.
3. "Champagne Supernova" by Oasis
Listen, here's the deal. I heart Oasis. Big time. Straight up fangirl over here. I've seen them in concert at least four times and when Liam and Noel get over their current pissing contest (read: when they run out of money and need to make some ASAP) and get the band back together, I will gladly put the money down for floor seats. Until then, listen to the song that takes me back to my senior year in high school. And don't worry, there will be more Oasis throughout the month.
How about you? Any "C" artists or songs I need to know? To the comments!
