Since 1978's Music for Airports, Brian Eno has been releasing instrumental records that imagine electronic music as an opium den, leaving rock to his production clients (U2, Coldplay). Small Craft is something different: a rhythmically aggressive Brian Eno album. "Horse" features fearsome electric guitar, and the thrashing end of "2 Forms of Anger" reminds you that Eno helped invent glam, punk and No Wave. Awesome to hear him get rowdy again. Now, is a tour too much to hope for?

    “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."
