SONG OF THE DAY: MICHAEL JACKSON – CAN’T LET HER GET AWAY

I think ‘Dangerous’ might just be my favourite Michael Jackson album. It houses my all-time favourite MJ song which is ‘Remember The Time’, plus so many other great songs (but yes, one or two sickly sweet ballads). In particular I love ‘Can’t Let Her Get Away’.

SONG OF THE DAY: ALICIA KEYS – IN COMMON

When I started this blog I decided I would focus on the music I like rather than trashing the music I don’t, even if the latter is by an artist I’m a fan of and want to talk about.
