Music 10 C’s: Coldplay to Chandelier

1. Coldplay
They are one of the favorite bands. They had a lot of hit albums and singles as well. My favorite album from the band was “Parachutes” because of its melancholic and emotional sound.

2. California Gurls
The first single from Katy Perry’s album “Teenage Dream”. It featured rapper Snoop Dogg. Katy Perry dropped her pop rock sound to purely pop in this song.

3. Can’t Buy Me Love
One of The Beatles’ most notable songs. I often hear this song back then since my brother always play the compilation album of The Beatles.

4. Christina Aguilera
One of the top female artists who emerged in 1999. She had a lot big hits. It was also the title of her first album which generated four top 3 hits on Billboard Hot 100.

5. Can’t Feel My Face
One of the biggest hits during the recent year. It was a song by Canadian singer The Weeknd. It reminded me of Michael Jackson upon hearing the song with such a funk on it.

6. Cher
She is one of the most successful female artists which her career spanned decades and still relevant. Her most successful single was “Believe” in 1998.

7. Champagne Supernova
One of Oasis’ signature songs. It is one of my favorites from the band which was released during the mid-1990’s. It was taken from their biggest album “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?”.

8. Cassie
She is a R&B singer who was known for the hit “Me and U”. However, she can be considered as a one-hit wonder after the success of that sole single. She is one of the half-Filipino and half-American singer.

9. Chris Brown
He was known for a lot of hits, either R&B or EDM tracks. His most widespread successful album was “Exclusive” which generated the international hit “With You”.

10. Chandelier
This was sang by one of the best voices today, Sia. Aside from scoring hits, she wrote and produced hits for other artists today. By the way, “Chandelier” has been a global hit and even reached more than a billion views on YouTube.
