Soko



Soko
SoKo (born St├ęphanie Sokolinski) is a French singer and actress. She was born in Bordeaux in France to a Polish family and has been called SoKo as far back as she can remember. She has appeared in several French movies, and got her start as a singer after she asked the director if she could sing on screen. In 2007 and 2008 she got a big hit in a number of countries, including Denmark, Austria and Belgium. At the moment SoKo isn’t signed by a (major) record label. She says; “I don’t want to sign now because I think it’s really rushed.” At several festivals she mentioned an album might be released in autumn 2008.
You say you love me more, than all the girls you have had before
Even more than music, even more than yourself
Even more than everything, but it's just a lie
So I will never love you more, than anything
I Will Never Love You More
Ill Kill Her
Take My Heart

Today's Random Song...

Gonna Getcha Good - Shania Twain


Original version is the best.

Love is a Mystery



Joshua Radin
Joshua Radin is an acoustic singer/songwriter. When close friend and actor/film-maker Zach Braff heard a demo of Radin’s song “Winter,” he was immediately interested, and got the song onto his show Scrubs in the episode “My Screw Up.” The song received an overwhelmingly positive response and gave Radin substantial exposure with the show’s demographic. The songs “Today”, “Closer”, “Don’t Look Away” and “These Photographs” were also used on the show.

Since, Joshua’s songs have been further featured on the FOX Television drama North Shore, and the ABC medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. His song “Star Mile” is on The Last Kiss movie soundtrack. Most recently his song “What If You” was featured on soundtrack to the movie Catch and Release.

The album “We Were Here” was released in 2006, containing many of the songs featured on the various television shows. The album is made up of heavily acoustic indie Folk/Pop, and is especially reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel, Elliott Smith, Damien Rice and Iron & Wine.
I know you're scared that I'll soon be over it,
thats part of it all,
part of the beauty of falling in love with you,
is the fear you wont fall....
And I know its easy to say, but its harder to feel this way.
And I miss you more than I should, than I thought I could,
I can't get my mind off of you.
The Fear You Wont Fall
Closer
