    I’ve been struggling to find songs/artists that sound like “Whatever You Do”… in fact I haven’t really found any, but perhaps a-ha comes closest…

    a-ha is of course one of the all-time great pop bands. 

    The band formed in Norway in 1982, broke through on the world scene in 1985 with their landmark song and music video “Take On Me”, and went on to release 9 studio albums over the following 25 years, finally calling it quits in 2010.

    Paul Waaktaar-Savoy (pictured, center) is the main songwriter and possibly driving force behind a-ha.

    Morten Harket (pictured, left) is the voice and face of the band, with his distinctive falsetto, wide vocal range and enduring boyish good looks.

    Magne Furuholmen (pictured, right) completes the formula on keyboards and guitars.

    a-ha songs always have beautiful melodies, often bitter-sweet, moving, full of nostalgia and emotion.  The brilliant songwriting is served by immaculate production, grand arrangements – combining synthetic and organic elements – and of course Morten’s unique, beautiful voice.  The videos are often set in equally grand and awe-inspiring open spaces.

     I have made a list of my favorite a-ha songs, and a video playlist which you can watch below or on my YouTube channel

    Cassie is hot!  That’s an understatement… Easily one of the most beautiful women on the planet!  Well, the good news is: Cassie’s back!

    Her 2005/6 debut single “Me & U” was a gem of understated R&B production by Ryan Leslie.  There was the album, a few follow-up singles and featured appearances… but not much since 2006… Not sure what happened…

    Then 2009 and the rad new “half-shaved” haircut… not many could have pulled that one off.

    Anyway… There’s a new album coming out early 2012 and the trailer for the first single “King of Hearts” has just been released – it’s more dance and sounds promising.

    I’ve put together a playlist of Cassie’s sexiest videos, including:

    the “King of Hearts” trailer,
    “Me & U”,
    “Long Way to Go”, and
    “Official Girl” (feat. Lil Wayne)

    Watch it here below or on my YouTube channel: pure hotness!   You’ll thank me later…
