Ahhh, I know, I never really got into her. I think I was too consumed by grief when Michael died, and then I distanced myself from him as a coping mechanism in the year after he passed :( It should be okay by now, but I guess it never occurred to me! I'll have to give some of her music a chance :)

ooh this looks great :D I barely listen to English music these days, but this is bringing memories of my favourites back. we have a lot of fave songs in common!

some suggestions - One Republic (Secrets, Apologize), The Script (Breaking Even), Hedley (Perfect, For the Nights I Can't Remember), Lucy Hale (Run This Town, Make You Believe, Bless Myself, Extra Ordinary)...hmm, I'm sure I have more but I can't think of any right now.

Out of curiosity, what language do you listen to? :D I've really been wanting to get into Spanish, Portuguese, and German music, but... I have no clue where to even start with that haha. I should get around to Shakira's Spanish albums eventually, but I know she'd only be the tip of the iceberg considering how widely spoken Spanish is. Gah.

Omg, I've been meaning to listen to The Script for... forever now, and I never remember that when I feel like adding new stuff to my library, so thank you for the reminder :D I'll definitely be sussing out the other suggestions, too!

Korean ^^ I love kpop; it's my biggest addiction after football. (excluding ice cream.)

Shakira's Spanish version of songs sound really nice. Granted, I haven't listened to that many, but I like a lot of the Spanish versions better than the English versions (e.g. Waka Waka, Gypsy). I think European languages sound beautiful, especially Spanish.
