82. See It In A Boy’s Eyes – Jamelia
Co-written with the Blessèd Chris Martin (*) out of Coldplay (peace be upon him), but don’t let that put you off. In a notably thin year for decent R&B (so what happened there then?), it was left to plucky Brits like Jamelia to show the Stateside lot how to do it properly.
(*) Say what you like about the “special relationship” between U2 and iPods this year, but at least none of them went so far as to name their children after the f***ing company. Did Chris & Gwyneth get special trademark clearance for that, one wonders?
