Corrine Bailey Rae Back On The UK Charts
My favorite discovery of the year is the delightful Corinne Bailey Rae. She's been a steady presence on the UK charts, but this week sees her delicate new song "Like A Star" debuting at #32, which pushed her album back into the Top 10. Norah Jones-like success should definitely be hers, though Rae is a very different, less mellow talent. (And hey, I just noticed she's gone gold in the US. Hurrah!) The #1 single is by My Chemical Romance and the #1 album -- despite mixed reviews -- is by The Killers.
