If you haven’t downloaded the new SSION album BENT yet, I really don’t know what you’re waiting for. It’s one of the best albums of the year! Maybe the best. If that doesn’t convince you, it’s also a free (scroll way down).
Perfect pop music. Yes, she did it.
*** Favourite line: “Don’t be a queen, just be a dragon” vs Lady Gaga’s “Don’t be a drag, just be a queen”
*** Top 40 hit: My Love Grows in the Dark
*** Only song to skip: Blonde With U

*** Und die Punk Zöpfe sind abgeschnitten
*** Ke$ha, Madonna, Prince, Hole

And here is a clip from last year when Cody performed at Hotnuts.
