The Dave Matthews Band has been documenting its shows long enough to know what translates to the screen, and this disc, culled from 2002 tour stops at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington state, is a shining example of how live-concert DVDs should be shot: Viewers get not simply the house video-screen feed or endless close-ups but a mix of perspectives, edited in sync with the flow of the music. The sets are fairly straightforward, with the usual handful of DMB highlights. The highest: a dastardly rendition of "Pig."

    “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."
