    I detect an anti-Scandanavian bias.

    Stuff you need to get on includes:

    The Similous – All this Love

    Marit Larsen – Don’t Save Me

    Bertine Zetlitz – 500

    Linda Sundblad – Oh Father

  2. Lisa Says:

    Love the album picture you chose for this post. I’m really digging Christina’s new album – – though, Stripped is still on top as my favorite of hers. Her voice simply rocks.

    Great list, too. Happy New Year Dave!

  3. Dave Says:

    Happy New Year, Lisa! Lot of great pop songs on the latest Christina. Also some really silly songs. If she kept it to an album and cut out the silly stuff, she’d really have something. Regardless, the voice is great.
