Listen Up! "Light Years"
This is Amber Davis. Amber is a halfie (half American, half Filipino) trying to gain an audience beyond the Philippine Shores. "Light Years" is her latest attempt at that feat and to be honest I find it to be fairly generic by U.S. standards. With that being said, a U.S. sound, even a bland one, is a great leap forward for a song coming out of the Philippines where the music industry seems to be mired in soft cheesy love ballads. Besides, in America, generic typically spells HIT so you might like it. That came out wrong. What I'm trying to say is that most of you have bad taste in music so something mediocre yet polished like "Light Years" might sound amazing to you. Give it a listen.
