This month I must recommend the album Waking Up from OneRepublic (Yeah, they spell it as one word). They exploded onto the music scene when hip-hop artist Timbaland remixed their song “Apologize” from their debut album. Since then they have written several hits for other artists such as Leona Lewis, Rihanna, Beyoncé, and more. Released in 2009, their second album, Waking Up contains the songs “All the Right Moves” and “Good Life,” the latter was featured in the advertisements for the movie Eat, Pray, Love. The album’s sound can be described as rock/indie/soul. The melodies are infectious, and will have you dancing all day.
