Hours before his concert last Sunday, US singer-songwriter Jason Mraz preached the importance of 'song karma' - or treating music with respect.

A true lover - of the E word

Doo-Wops and Hooligans Bruno Mars (CD)

As a Hawaiian, Bruno Mars could have filled his debut with Jack Johnson-like ukulele melodies and island vibes. But the 25-year-old has greater ambitions.

1. What Are You Asking Me - James Newton Howard

Of all the M. Night Shyamalan movies with James Newton Howard soundtracks, The Village is my favourite, especially What Are You Asking Me. I love its subdued lyricism and Hilary Hahn's haunting violin.

2. Imagine - Eva Cassidy

Hong Kong: cultural hub

It seems Hong Kong has finally become a hotspot for international artists. Over the last fortnight, we've played host to J-rock heavyweight X-Japan, mastermind of Talking Heads David Byrne and Scottish post-rock giants Mogwai. Granted, these acts were probably more appealing to your parents, but if you think there's nothing for Young Post readers to enjoy, think again.

Outtakes

Bright Sparkes turnaround

Many hip hop artists like to boast of a criminal past, regardless of whether it's true or not. One of the best such tales involves Clinton Sparks, a US radio DJ and producer making another return to Hong Kong.
