Appreciating Music from Some of My Sistas of the UK

I've been taking a bit of a break from listening to pop music, preferring mostly "old school" hip hop, and my beloved "adolescent music" from the '80s. But, I have to say that some of the black and multi-racial ladies of the UK are slowly drawing me back in. Corrine Bailey Rae, Estelle, VV Brown, and Rox (Sade is always there in the mix) have been putting out some really interesting and fun music. They remind me of the days back when I was all about Sade, Loose Ends and Soul II Soul.

Dina Carroll! A voice, a face, a talent from the UK we overlooked.

Her version of "The Perfect Year" is stellar.

I'm just sayin'...
