Radiohead have been back in the studio since late August, and though details on the new disc remain sketchy, the band has been posting updates on radiohead.com. "Jonny [Greenwood]'s stepping over guitar leads and pedals and a laptop as we demo yet another new tune," Thom Yorke wrote about the song "Rubbernecks," which includes the anti-paparazzi lyric, "It's creeping up the car park/It's coming up the drive/Rubbernecks with cameras/Petrol and bonfires."

“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."
