Sorry I haven't posted for a couple of weeks. :) Today's video is by the Finnish gothic/symphonic metal band Nightwish. They've been together since 1996 and the original members were songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, singer Tarja Turunen and guitarist Emppu Vuorinen. Bassist and male vocalist Marco Hietala joined in 2002, replacing the original bassist Sami Vanska.  Tarja was basically kicked out of the band in 2005, in a letter which was also published on the website and  later replaced by Anette Olzon. Tarja has gone on to have a solo career and released three albums, a Christmas album called Henk√§ys Ikuisuudesta, My Winter Storm and What Lies Beneath. I prefer Tarja's vocals to Annette but I think Annette sounds alright. However I've just read that she has also left the band and they currently have a subsitute vocalist, Floor Jansen who used to be in the band After Forever. Nightwish have released 7 albums and their latest one is Imaginareum (2011). …

Top 10 Jennifer Lopez Songs

I thought it was time for another Top 10 list. Jennifer Lopez is one of my favourite singers, so here's my list of my Top 10 favourite J.Lo songs!

1. If You  Had My Love

This is Jennifer's debut single and my favourite of  hers. I remember I bought it in Paris in 1999 when I was 15, so it reminds me of that time! It's from her debut album On The 6 (1999).

I've posted about Korean boy bands before, so now I'm going to post about a girl band! This week's video is of Korean girl group Girls' Generation, also known as SNSD. They've been together since 2007 and there are 9 members, Tayeon, Jessica, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona and Seohyun. This is the video for their song Run Devil Run, which was a single from the repackaged version of their album Oh! and released in 2010.

Talking of K-pop, there were K-pop videos on UK TV today! They had a Top 10 K-pop groups list (including Girls' Generation and Big Bang) on Clubland TV. That Gangnam Style song is making Korean pop more popular here! lol. But that will be a good thing if Korean (and also Japanese and Asian in general) music is more accessible in the UK.
