Charley says VIDEO! Youth Olympic Games 2010 – Everyone

August 11, 2010

So apparently there’s such a thing as the Youth Olympic Games and like any self-respecting sports event, you’re going to need a theme song.

Host country Singapore got five singers from five continents together on ‘Everyone‘.

The song itself isn’t anything groundbreaking, but is pleasant enough. Its real merit however is featuring Charley says POP! favourites Jody Williams and Jessica Mauboy on the same track, while introducing us to Tabitha Nauser.

If neither of those names ring a bell, below is, from left to right, a short guide to the five popstars featured on ‘Everyone‘!

Name: Jody Williams
Continent: Africa
YouTube: Kiss Of Life
Who: The youngest South African Idol winner ever. With ‘Just Gonna Be Me’ she released one of the best talent show debut albums ever. Be sure to also check out her pop stomper ‘Wind It‘.

Name: Steve Appleton
Continent: Europe
YouTube: City Won’t Sleep (Moto Blanco Radio Edit)
Who: Cute California surfer looking British singer whose guitar pop sounds perfectly pleasant with a Moto Blanco remix on top of it.

Name: Tabitha Nauser
Continent: Asia
YouTube: Halo (Live)
Who: Singapore Idol 2009 alum who seems like she’s on her way to be proper popstar.

Who: Sean Kingston
Continent: America

Who: Often annoying, very occasionally amazing singer from Jamaica.

Name: Jessica Mauboy
Continent: Oceania

Charley says LIST! Now That’s What I Call 2009!

February 22, 2010

A couple of months ago I compiled my very first end of year list ever. What I did was take my 50 most played songs that were released in 2009, pick out my favourites and rearrange them for the perfect flow. I tried to not go for the usual suspects, so that I’d end up with a list that’s very… me.

You may have seen this list before, but I thought it would make for a perfect first post that indicates what you can expect here in the future.

Enjoy!
