The other day while watching The X Factor I made an interesting discovery. There I sat thoroughly enjoying a ballad (great job Danie, even if they did vote you off) when it hit me which song the girl was singing... Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus. It was too late I had already opened my mouth and announced to my husband that I liked the song, and we both burst out laughing when we realized it was a Miley Cyrus song! But I must admit, even though she's having a Britney-Spears-lost-her-mind moment, the song is good. The song only, not the video, or all the other antics she's up to! Sometimes it takes someone else covering a number to open your eyes and ears to a decent song. To be honest, I probably never would have given the song a chance... and it's easily avoidable considering I rarely listen to the radio or watch music videos. So I guess, thank you X Factor, because I've listened to the song over and over again.
Besides Miley Cyrus' new number there's also another decent ballad in the charts right now, a nice surprise... Rihanna's Stay with Mikky Ekko. Rihanna seems to be able to do it all, dance numbers and touching ballads, did you know she already has 12 #1 hits!
So what's on my playlist these days besides Wrecking Ball & Stay... other numbers I can't get enough of right now and you should definitely give a chance... Bruno Mars : When I Was Your Man and Pink & Nate Ruess : Just Give Me A Reason and some older ones... Plain White T's : Hey There Delilah and Radiohead : Creep My playlists are generally highly influenced by one of two things, exercising or writing, and right now I'm working on a romance novel so my playlist is full of emotional ballads at the moment.
