The list of songs we’ve picked as our favorites of the year nicely depict what types of songs made up the year’s chart toppers. Cool indie songs, a smooth R&B track and a bumping hype song all helped us get through the year as we traveled to and fro.

If you’re a fan of Kimbra then you’ve probably heard her perform Nina Simone’s “Plain Gold Ring,” many times before. The New Zealand singer performed the song, which is also featured on her debut album Vows, once again for Billboard, this time taking the time to explain her fascination with the tune. It’s not my favorite performance, but it’s nice to hear her talk about her connection to the song.

“And there’s no conspiracy, behind the way two hearts meet, when love is a two way street,” Kimbra sings in her new single “Two Way Street.” Today the New Zealand released her first US video for the new single. The video is full of fun colors, speeding cars, fireworks, and long runs through the forest. Not as meaningful as some of her previous videos, but it’s appropriate and cute!!
Seriously, I can’t get enough of her! Watch the video for “Two Way Street” below!! Continue reading
Kimbra (the girl who sings with Gotye on “Somebody That I Used To Know” is preparing to take over the US. Earlier this week the New Zealand songstress performed her single “Settle Down” on Jay Leno and today she released behind the scenes footage from her new video! “Two Way Street” will be the first single to get a US video, and from the looks of it it’s going to be really glamorous and fun!
Over the past few days I have completely fallen in love with Kimbra after watching the video for her single “Settle Down,” as well as a few live performances where she builds the entire song onstage with loops and a sampler. Imagine my excitement when I heard (thanks, Kid Fury) that she performed that very single on Jay Leno last night!!!
Watch the performance below and let me know what you think!! Continue reading
Before he hit the stage at Coachella this past weekend, Gotye took to the SNL stage to perform his hit single “Somebody That I Used To Know” with Kimbra. Proving that he could also make fun of himself, the singer also allowed Andy Samberg and and Taran Killam to spoof the popular video, which uses stop motion photography. I enjoyed the performance and thought the spoof was pretty hilarious! You can check them both out below!!! Continue reading
Glee is returning to television tonight with a brand new show full of drama and covers of our favorite popular songs! One of those songs is Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.” The producers switched it up and had Darren Criss (Blaine) and Matt Bomer (Cooper) sing the hit song, making it about a familial relationship instead of a romantic one. Did they outdo Gotye and Kimbra?? Listen below and tell me what you think!!! Continue reading
