Can't find a reason why I shouldn't try

With a hat-tip to EQ, while we're on the subject of this blog's icons, Blake Lewis performed some of his new songs at LA Pride. I'm pleased to say that, though the instrumental of "Please Don't Stop" does sound dance/spiky electronica-influenced, it sounds like the overall product is much more pop than I thought independent Blake would go.



I can't really judge the song without hearing that backing in higher quality, but this does up the (to be fair, already very favorable despite concerns) odds of me getting the album, due out in October. My fears have not all been allayed, though.

(There's another song, "Rapture Of Love," here; h/t to Yuri. More of a ballad, and less interesting to my ears.)

That's my vid! you can't really hear it all that well in the video, but the mix is great. He had recorded it previously for ADD but it didn't make the cut, this time around he re-did it with Dave Aude (i believe) it's 1000x better than the previous cut (that leaked out a while back or just youtube Love or Torture). I'm not really sure what to expect since those two songs are SO different.

i'm still excited for Blake to bring his new album out, even if i do listen to ADD more than those random dance singles he released later on. A mixture of both those styles would be fairly satisfying :)

Not overwhelmed by either of these, esp the first one :(

Sigh. Turn it on, Blake.

Paul's onto a winner with what formula he should go for next.

I am still having nightmares over that video blog he did though.
