This split EP finds two Omaha, Nebraska, bands making indie-folk prettiness out of all the depression that can befall a twentysomething. Neva Dinova acquit themselves with Gram Parsons-y ballads, but the star, predictably, is Bright Eyes' boy genius Conor Oberst, who's so adept at shambling tunefulness that he can make even levelheaded skeptics want to sing alongwith his emoting about "a comedy so dry and black it makes my stomach hurt."

    “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."
