After scoring a worldwide hit with his debut single "Cooler Than Me", MIKE POSNER is ready to go ahead with the second track from his 31 Minutes To Takeoff album. The title is PLEASE DON'T GO, a song written and produced by Posner himself in collaboration with mega producer/songwriter Benny Blanco.

You can stream the song here:

Posner must be really bad with the ladies, cause almost ALL of his songs are about how a girl has left him or is going to and he wants them to stay...anyway, still a great track! =)

"Back To December"
is the latest piece of music we've heard from Taylor Swifts' latest album Speak Now. Personally, this is my favorite song from the new record. It features a lush arrangement that borders on orchestral towards the end and during the chorus, it actually sounds like a Lady Antebellum song!

Swift admits that the song is “almost word-for-word” a conversation she had in real life with a boy whose heart she broke. Fans are tending to believe that she’s referring to Twilight hottie Taylor Lautner, with whom she was linked earlier this year.

Check out the song below, and decide for yourself!

These guys are currently storming the music charts particularly in the US Billboard chart. They bring something unique to the music industry because of their ethnicity (the members are all Asians!) hoping to breakdown the stereotypes using hip-hop, pop and electro-dance with their music.

About the band: The FAR EAST MOVEMENT (also known as FM), hailing from the clubs and streets of Los Angeles, are one of the freshest crews representing the next generation of artists and “fly music.” Members Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman (half-Filipino) have created a huge industry buzz with major companies, radio stations, and club djs worldwide through their international appeal, energetic live shows, and collaborations with top street wear companies.

Check out their first #01 hit LIKE A G6 featuring The Cataracts/Dev.

This is Maroon 5's latest single GIVE A LITTLE MORE, off from their latest cd Hands All Over. The song is perhaps the 'Makes Me Wonder' on the album...A little bit funky, a little sexy and a lot catchy!

Try also to watch this: A video that i uploaded in my Youtube channel, the band's awesome performance of Wont Go Home Without You. Enjoy!

Akuztik Pick 17: PAULA COLE

Remember singer PAULA COLE?...she's the voice behind the theme song to Dawson's Creek I Dont Want To Wait and yez- she's returning to the music scene with a new album called ITHACA. The new record is simply solid, mature and a very good album from any perspective.

The first track MUSIC IN ME is enough proof that her superb voice is still there and shows her talent as songwriter.

Of course, who would forget the song WHERE HAVE ALL THE COWBOYS GONE that won Cole a Grammy award for Best New Artist back in 1997?...this rare performance is one of her best!

An old song favorite from one of the best album (but underrated!) in the 1990's, Joan Osborne's Relish. Fans of good music, taste and style must own this album!

Come and wrap around me
Take me through the snow

Eve took a train, eve took a train
Went to see her man
Melting inside, melting away
Like butter in the pan

Come and wrap around me
Take me through the snow

Eve took a fruit, eve picked a fruit
Juice ran down her chin
Babies will put things in their mouths
Never heard of sin

Open like the sea
Sing me in the dark

Eve had to ask, eve had to ask
What is wrong with this
Here is the place, now is the time
Let’s invent the kiss

Come and wrap around me
Come and wrap around me...

Happy Birthday John Lennon!

Legendary music icon John Lennon would have celebrated his 70th birthday today!...Can you IMAGINE
what life would have been like if John hadn't been killed at such a young age, what else he might have done or said or written or sung? Hard to believe he has already been gone so long.

His music will live on with us forever. Happy Birthday John!

The GOO GOO DOLLS are back!!!

It's been awhile since the GOO GOO DOLLS have been in the spotlight. But now. they're back with a new album called Something For The Rest Of Us. The lead single HOME proves that the band still have what it takes to make incredible music. Watch their live performance here:

Frontman Johnny Rzeznik without doubt one of the worlds if not the world's best songwriter and live performer. Most of their previous hit was written and composed by him. Here's some of them:

officially the first GGD's hit. This is my favorite track from their 1995 album A Boy Named Goo.

IRIS probably the band's best known song. It was written for the soundtrack of City Of Angels and later included on their sixth album Dizzy Up the Girl. Personally, this is one of my favorite song of all-time.

Akuztik Pick 16: ALEX BAND

Singer ALEX BAND (born Alexander Max Band) is the former front man of The Calling, best known for their smash hit single "Whenever You Will Go" in 2001.
Now on his own musically, Band released an EP in 2008 followed by his full length debut album We've All Been There in June 2010 which contains the carrier single TONIGHT.

This melodic rock ballad displays a slightly more mature and bigger sound when compared to that of The Calling era, but the vocals in it are typical of Alex: strong, compassionate and pleasantly haunting.

Another solo recording from Alex is his collaboration with SANTANA, a song called WHY DON'T YOU AND I, and you can stream his solo acoustic performance below:
