Ice King, Adventure Time

British Pop, Me Mate!

I've been spending the last few days revisiting some things I used to do all the time. Namely, one video game and listening to British rock bands from the 1960's. I don't know what about The Seekers that is interesting, but Georgy girl just hits me as a cool song. I'vealso been listening to other groups/individuals like Dusty Springfield, The Foundations, Ringo Starr and Neil Sadaka, who I think is American. Anyways, that songs are kind of carefree and just fun to listen too.

While reminiscing about said musicians, in the back of my head, I remembered another British (methinks) musician that I saw on Google Current (I'm a HUGE fan of GC) a few months back. She won the best music video award on YouTube, and her talent really shows it. The song that popularized her is "Say It's Possible". While modern, folky, and acoustic, there is just something about it that is just sticks in my head. She is releasing her first CD next week, and I listened to the version on Myspace, and it's definately less acoustic, and honestly....I prefer the acoustic version better. I can't believe I said that. It's true, though.

Watch the music video from YouTube and tell me what you think.
