- Lorraine - I Feel It: An all-male band called Lorraine; must be some Nordic humour that I'm missing. But a killer sing-along chorus.
- Elin Sigvardsson - Where to Start: Scandinavian folk, should give US folkies a few lessons in melody.
- Tina Dico - In The Red: Beautiful yet weary voice, and the song just lingers well after it's done.
- Snow Patrol - You're All I Have: With Coldplay on hiatus, Snow Patrol fills the vacant position of "safe rock band with big sound". They'll do for now.
- Juanes - La Camisa Negra: This Colombian superstar as big as Shakira in his home country, and this is his first international hit.
- Ladytron - Destroy Everything You Touch: Dedicated to the Power Trio.
And this week's classic pick is the mindless rock smash My Sharona by one hit wonders The Knack.
