...And one bạn should give a một giây chance.

I've been known to have âm nhạc tastes that aren't for everyone. People tend to be a little crazy about what âm nhạc they do and don't like but if it makes bạn feel good who really cares, right? I was up last night watching âm nhạc video for one of the artists on here and I was thinking to myself "Why aren't they thêm popular? Why does nobody I know talk about them?" Then I answered my own câu hỏi and decided to inform the masses! So lets get started!

Lets start with the one bạn should give a một giây chance...Carly Rae Jepsen. Of course bạn know her, whether bạn want to hoặc not. You're probably thinking "I already know her and I don't like her, so why should I give her another glance?" but I have an answer for that, like I do to 22% of life's other questions.

The answer is that if bạn tình yêu 80s âm nhạc like I do, and the fabulous synth sounds that accompany it, bạn quite possibly would tình yêu her third album Emotion. An album that I'm still mad about that didn't get nominated for ANY Grammy's. The same năm that a certain someone else's not-so-aptly titled "80s throwback" album actually won Album of the Year. Not đắng, cay đắng about that at all. Nope.

In Short: When bạn can get your boyfriend with vastly different âm nhạc taste than bạn to listen to this on his own, it's pretty special.

Now onto the five!


Why bạn May Not Know Him: He's from England, and not that mainstream over there anyway.

In Short: He's one of my all-time yêu thích artists, and as far as I'm concerned the best modern synthpop artist. Lately he has been producing and putting out his own stuff, and it's still as good (occasionally even better) than his mass produced âm nhạc from early in his career.

Why bạn May Not Know Her: bạn might actually. "Habits (Stay High)" and "Talking Body" were pretty big hits and she was big enough to tour with Katy Perry. But bạn might not have listened to her outside the hits.

In Short: Her latest album Lady Wood was an instant hit with me and her catchy beats and meaningful lyrics make her a sleeper hit.


Why bạn May Not Know Her: She's never actually released an LP, and doesn't really have any mainstream hits.

In Short: Drummer, singer, song-writer hoặc Victoria's Secret model? bạn decide. Just don't sleep on my girl!


Why bạn May Not Know Her: I'm not sure why. There's really no excuse.

In Short: After being a "featured" artist on many hits, she released her first very aptly titled album Glorious was just that - glorious. From start to finish, I don't skip a single song. Please please don't sleep on my beauty!


Why bạn May Not Know Them: bạn probably do, just not bởi name. Their first big hit "Brokenhearted" has a hook that I guarantee you've likely heard before, but never associated it with them.

In Short: I don't know who to be thêm jealous of - Nick hoặc Amy. I'm gonna go with Nick bởi a smaller margin. Amy is gorgeous, can rap and dance and sing and did I mention gorgeous? 😍 They have such a massive amount of talent I feel is being wasted bởi their covers.
