Desktop Girl of the Week: Hayley Williams


I don't listen to the radio at all, and I haven't since about 2002, so I tend to miss out of a lot of things in music. One of the groups I let slip under my radar was Paramore, fronted by lead singer Hayley Williams. In fact, it wasn't until I picked up the B.o.B. album back in December (also about 6 months late on that one!) that I really heard Hayley Williams for the first time. Sure, I'd seen her before that, and I'd probably heard some Paramore songs in passing, but I'd never really taken the time to actually listen to her music until "Airplanes".

Well, you don't need me to tell you that it's good. It is. And you don't need me to tell you that she's attractive. She is. I'm still not entirely sure that Paramore's overall sound is something I'm in to, but her voice is almost hypnotic at times, and (my Britney Spears obsession aside) I'm a sucker for a great female voice. I'm definitely going to be giving the past Paramore albums more of a listen over the next few days, and I'll definitely be sure to pick up the new one -- with the new lineup -- right when it comes out, not 6 months (or 6 years) later.

As always with DGOW, I’ll provide a widescreen (1680x1050) image for downloading. If you want to see past DGOW, then just check the archive album.
