In the Seventies, James Taylor and Carole King practically invented the sensitive singer-songwriter. Nearly four decades after first singing together onstage at L.A.'s Troubadour, the pair returned in 2007 for three nights of concerts to adoring audiences, performing note-for-note renditions of their classics: Taylor's sweet lament 'Fire and Rain' and wistful 'Carolina in My Mind,' King's brooding hit ballad 'So Far Away' and an acoustic version of her Sixties girl-group standard 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow.' It's a nostalgia fest, but a good one.

    “Promiscuous”

    Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

    This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
