Songs heard lately
Obsesion by Aventura
Infinitely danceable sound from a bachata band from the Dominican Republic. Currently number one in at least one world music chart I saw.

All Nite by Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson may no longer be Beyonce hot as she was in the eighties, but she still has her groove. Definitely bigger than Michael Jackson now. Wardrobe malfunction was a good career move.

Let's get it started by Black Eyed Peas
Weeks ago, I was talking about Black Eyed Peas with a fifty-year-old man. I was surprised Black Eyed Peas has such a huge fan base. Apparently, the man was fascinated by the life story of Apol, which he saw on Maalaala Mo Kaya ( or magpakailanman? ). He said he couldn't help but listen to the band because his son, a huge fan, is practicing some dance steps for school. I suspect even Digs Dilangalen is a fan.

Burn by Usher
Usher has given the phrase kiss and tell a whole new dimension. And only a genuine megawatt superstar can get away with such a girlie dance sequence (as Usher can be seen executing at the end of his Burn music video).

If I Ain't Got You by Alicia Keys
Keys seems to me a Mary J. Blige wannabee, but in this song at least she pulls it off.
