I've had Lily Allen featured here before for her song The Fear and I liked it so much I finally bought her album.
Lily is kind of like Amy Whinehouse without the rats nest hairdo and drugs. And when I say like, I mean Lily is way better! I love Lily's voice when she sings because she sings with an accent.
You know when you hear a singer talk for the first time you are surprised that they have an accent because when they sing you can't tell. Well Lily is the only one I've seen that actually sings with her accent.
I love it.

Home grown right here in Utah. Orem in fact! Imagine that, Orem must be so proud!
I love The Used and not just because they are Happy Valley misfits, their music rocks. I've had this CD for a while, the only thing I don't like about them is when they scream in their songs.
Hello? That's not singing.
But I sill love them! This is the album cover:

I'm sorry people but I can't stand this song. The lyrics just drive me crazy! They are just so stupid. I'm a hater and my husband is a lover. He blasts it in the car and even sings just to annoy me.

This band was actually introduced to me on X96. Keifer Sutherland actually came to Utah to promote the band, he is their producer. Isn't that interesting? Keifer Sutherland coming to lil ol' Utah to promote his band. Well nobody heard of them before Keifer came here and now they are huge. That happens a lot with X96, they can make no name bands huge!

I love the beginning of this song, it's a slow pulsating and pounding opening with the echoing first line:
Sung by the lead singer, a chick, Emily Haines. You know I love a chick lead singer! (Tori Amos, Paramore, Shiny Toy Guns, Gwen Stafani, etc etc) I've actually never heard of Metro before until I heard this song but I hear the whole album, Fantasies, is great!
Apparently Mark from Blink 182 is a huge fan of Metro and raves about their new album on his blog constantly.
