San Diego indie rockers Crocodiles are about to follow up their 2010 record Sleep Forever with their third LP, Endless Flowers, which is out on June 5th. The group's first LP for new label Frenchkiss is filled with hooky, fuzz-bombed cuts like the title track and "Sunday (Psychic Conversation #9)," as well as standouts like the peppy, swooning ode "No Black Clouds for Dee Dee" and the grit-flecked sweetness of  "Bubblegum Trash."

“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."
