Battle of the Songs!
Congrats to "Airplanes" by B.o.B that has won 2 weeks now! Marina and the Diamonds just wasn't catchy enough for you all.  Here's the next challenge with a new song by the laid-back Jack Johnson.  Vote your favorite!

Music Review I've listened to B.o.B.'s new album "The Adventures of Bobby Ray" several times.  I think it's the most exciting release of the year so far.  The hype has already preceded the April 27th release, with "Nothin' on You" topping the charts since February and more recently, "Airplanes," doing very well.  I should have known that pitting any song against the sure-fire hit "Airplanes" was a bad idea. Good luck Marina & The Diamonds. 

While "Airplanes" is the standout for me, "Lovelier Than You" and "Past My Shades" are soon becoming favorites.  I hope that this debut boosts the 21-year-old rapper's long term career because it seems that this young musician (he plays Guitar, piano, trumpet, a little bit of harmonica) has true songwriting talent.

Grade: A

It took 3 years (10 flowers a day) and 10,000 origami flowers to make this art installation.  Check out the artist, James Roper.
