Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars genre: Tuned Out

I first heard music from the British band Snow Patrol while in London. Their debut CD in 2004 was called Final Straw and I liked the song I heard and made a note to listen to more of their music when I returned to the States. It now appears that they have hit it big in the US as well. The following music video is for a song on their new CD titled Eyes Open and the song title is Chasing Cars. It's one of my favorites from the CD.

The Fray - How To Save A Life genre: Tuned Out

The Fray is a Denver based band that early on garnered huge attention on MySpace. The band eventually received mainstream radio play, appeared on David Letterman, and also became the recipient of industry accolades.

I like this video...especially the use of light and how it creates a mood and a feeling throughout.

Jennifer Hudson vs. Jennifer Holliday genre: Tuned Out & Video-Philes

Jennifer Holliday was in the original Broadway version of Dreamgirls and she played the part that is now being played by Jennifer Hudson in the movie. As expected, there has been an immediate attempt to compare the two singer's performances to determine which is better. I would suggest that the viewer simply enjoy both performances...but if you're determined to pick a favorite, video of both singing And I am Telling You follows:
