  • Gay Happening Presents Greatest Dance Hits Nonstop
    Okay, I’ll admit it: I only reviewed this record because the title is HI-larious. If you want to test yourself to see if you’re a generic gay man, buy this record chock full of Madonna covers and early-’90s dance jams.
  • Ferry Corsten Twice In A Blue Mon
    This trance DJ from the Netherlands makes me wish I had a glow stick handy. Plus, his remix of The Killers “Human” is almost better than the original.
  • Leona Lewis Run
    The songstress sings her catalog of ballads and sappy pop songs. Nice voice, wussy music.
