K'naan's Troubador. K'naan is a Somali hip-hop artist. Very cool.
Once, I asked my imaginary friend,
"Are you real?"
She thought on this, and then sat
down upon the beach. She poked
her finger into the sand; it left a
hole. Ten times she did this, and
nine holes she left.
"Mostly," she concluded, and I was
forced to agree.

Sounds cool.  Any samples or mvids online or something that we could listen to?

True story. Most singles aren't hardly worth the money, but this one was well worth it.

Listening to Eurovision 2009 music.  These are all available on YouTube.

My favorites (somewhat in order-ish):

Urban Symphony - Rändajad (Estonia) - A haunting piece with vocals & strings, new agey with ethnic/folk elements, but just a touch more uptempo than might be expected from this description
Waldo's People - Lose Control (Finland) - I'd probably describe it as "hard trance", vaguely reminiscent of Scooter.  A nice dance song
Alexander Rybat - Fairytale (Norway) - A very fun, up-beat song combining elements of pop and folk-rock.  The mvid includes some cool Norwegian traditional dancing.  FYI:  Alexander's violin playing is majorly faked (even the frets—suggesting he can't play).  This song won Eurovision 2009, however
Marko Kon & Milaan - Cipela (Serbia) - kind of a funny song with an accordian and a guy in a deep voice who is speak-singing half the time.  Strangely addicting
Sasha Son - Love (Lithuania) - Piano, Voice, orchestra, & a very mild electric guitar.  It's a pretty song, generally pop with some jazz/R&B elements
Inga & Anush - Jan Jan (Armenia) - a fun dancy song with some ethnic instruments.  Vaguely reminds me of some punjabi stuff, but with a more Western pop feel overall
Krassimir Avramov - Illusion (Bulgaria) - Countertenor singing pop.  Some versions of the mvid are rather NSFW
Christina Metaxa - Firefly (Cyprus) - a fairly standard (soft) soft rock song.  Definitely on the pretty side, though
Chiara - What If We (Malta) - Somewhat similar in style to some Josh Groban stuff, but sung by a female vocalist, and with more "umph"
Regina - Bistra Voda (Bosnia & Herzegovina) - acoustic rock, a bit like a march, with a slightly folk twist.  Extra points for offering the song for download at their website

Also worth mentioning is Sveltlana Loboda - Be My Valentine (Anti-Crisis Girl) (Ukraine) - this is a very weird song, noisy, dancey, and employing a lot of brass.  The mvid is very weird and risqué.  While I don't really like this song, it's addicting

OK, so I finally got my CD player up and running yesterday?and since then I've been listening to pretty much nonstop West Side Story. Seriously. It's ridiculous. I've used it so much that my battery's almost out.

But I love the musical; it's my favorite ever, so.?

Because of my  mom, I've also listened to a bunch of Leonard Cohen in the last few days.?
