Click to listen to Raw Geronimo's 'Role Play'

Indie sextet Raw Geronimo have recently released their latest 7", which features the upbeat surf-pop track "Role Play." Singer Laena Geronimo's vocals may be cheery, but she insists that the track has a darker nature despite its poppy sound. "'Role Play' is a super cynical, but also fun, song about people pretending to be other people on the Internet," she says. "Musically and lyrically it goes through a lot of different moods and perspectives, from whimsical to psychotic to happy-go-lucky pop and back again. It's a fun song."

“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."
