This week's playlist: keep it together, try to keep this thing alive

Alive - Mondotek: massively successful anthem of the current tektonik boom in France.
My Cool - Adam Tensta: what a week it's been for him. Namechecked by Perez Hilton, performing at the Rockbjörnen and a first appearance in my playlist! World domination now inevitable.
Until I Die/Can't Get Over - September: Still enjoying her good old fashioned dancey-pop.
Jij Bent Zo - Jeroen van der Boom: faithful Dutch-language reworking of David Bisbal's rather good "Silencio".
Early Winter - Gwen Stefani: interesting departure for her, a song written by Keane's main songwriter, and is a real grower.
Homecoming - Kanye West & Chris Martin: great collaboration. Catchy piano hookline and Chris Martin sounds refreshed. Hopefully this might have given him some ideas for the next Coldplay CD...
Tell Me What It Takes - Soulsister: For no other reason other than my iPod decided that (although it's on shuffle mode) I would want to hear this twice in one day. And why not.
Aqua Playa - Afro-Dite: another long forgotten Melodifestivalen gem which I always liked. And yes, I was one of those people who liked "Never Let It Go" as well.
Miss Blue/Farewell/Cool Me Off - Vincent: Already enjoying his CD, and will review it on here very soon.

I read recently that they were reforming. Well they might as well do so - everyone else is, after all!!

Brandon - that would be "Alive" by Mondotek, currently very big in France.
