Popular Music

I just thought I'd share some of the music I hear over and over here... Mostly, I watch the music channels on tv. There are at least two VH1's and MTV's and Musicbox, and a few others...

Here are links to some of the most popular songs now.. some I am sure are played in the US, but not all.

Inna "Hot"

Oceana "Cry Cry"

Bisso na Bisso

Basic Element "Touch you right now"

Helmut Fritz - Sa M'enerve

Jay Sean "Tonight"

Lady Gaga - Poker Face

Enrique Iglesias -Takin back my love

And I'll throw in some former eastern Russian republic rap just to give you some culture....

One thing that really fascinates me here is the muslim/middle eastern influence. I took advanced European History classes in high school and college, but they really do not teach much about Russia. Quite embarrassing for me. I am thinking at some point, I really want to go to Tashkent and Samarkand in Uzbekistan - that is the heart of the Silk Road - connecting Asia to Europe - but we shall see!
