Track of the Day: 'Raining Diamonds'

More

Past TracksRickie Lee is an Australian pop singer and media powerhouse who sprang forth from the second season of Australian Idol. (No, she didn't win.) But she is getting ready to hit the big-time with this slab of broad-brushstroke arena pop. I don't usually gravitate towards this kind of music. But if you like the occasional huge chorus and some lightly soulful vocals, this lady deserves your time. You'll know whether it's for you within 15 seconds, before she's even finished the "whoooaaa"s that set up the first verse. Recommended if you have been known to occasionally dance around singing loudly into a hairbrush.
