November 16, 2009

Forty-four years after the Beatles first played Shea Stadium, Paul McCartney returned to Queens to play the first concert at Citi Field. Withan exceptionally well-preserved voice, Macca plows through Beatles andWings hits, plus solo gems. This is McCartney's sixth live album since 1990 — most with a nearly identical version of "Hey Jude" and "Live andLet Die." Skip to a blazing version of "Day Tripper," which hadn't beentouched since the 1960s. Best is "A Day in the Life," featuring McCartney singing both his and John Lennon's parts.

    “Bleeding Love”

    Leona Lewis | 2007

    In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
