We are already at one of the last letters of the alphabet, and I am quite looking forward for V now. It is going to be interesting ;)

My friend Giulia told me about this band and also gave me their album to listen to. I actually liked them. Their music sounds very light, fun and easy-going. Although I don’t listen to them so often, I still wanted (had) to include them in this Challenge ;) Here is a good reason.
Other Songs I like: Giving Up the Gun, The Kids don’t Stand a Chance, Horchata,…

I love the sound of this band. The voice of Lou Reed is unique and so special. Their lyrics are beautiful and match the atmosphere of that time. Even their band name is awesome, somehow mysterious. They are justifiably one of the best Rock bands of all time. Here is another reason.
Other songs I like: Oh! Sweet Nothing, Run Run Run, Femme Fatale, Heroin,…

The Vines rock! First heard of them in the movie Freaky Friday, back when Lindsay Lohan’s movies were actually good, and Chad Michael Murray looked hot :’D The music of the band sounds wild and awesome. Everything is in its right place. Nothing is too much nor too less. See for yourselves.
Other songs I like: Get free, outthataway, highly evolved,…
This was fast, right? Another letter is done, and you have 3 more new – more or less – artists to listen to. Hope you enjoyed it.

Thanks for reading!
