Nicola Roberts – Gladiator
Vacuum – Tonnes of Attraction (Maxim Andreev Electro Mix)
So I admit it, I Googled Maxim Andreev and found the LiveJournal of a sexy Russian man. I uncovered this post, and listened/watched it. I haven’t heard the original version of this song, but this Electro mix is far beyond the Adele remix I recently posted. It’s not just the source song is freaking catchy as hell, but also it’s the backing track that highlights the song really, really well. I’m glad I found this, give it a solid listen. What do you think of this song?
Nicola Roberts, “Disco Blisters & a Comedown”
Why do the lights in the kebab shop
Make this guy look less hot?
He’s looking like John Prescott
It is a pop song about partying way too late and then going home with a dude who really does not look all that great when the lights turn on and you’ve begun sobering up; in fact, he looks like the former Deputy Prime Minister of England. This is what brilliant pop songs should sound like.
I completely agree, I’m glad I tumbled across this song. Very infectious.
Selena Gomez & the Scene – Love You Like a Love Song (Happy Hotdog Club Mix)
If you’re been watching my Last.fm stream, and I’d be surprised if you were, you’d see I’ve been listening to the original song quite a lot. It’s that catchy repeat-peat-peat-peat-peat part that hooks me in to listen yet another time. It’s infectious.
Anyways, here’s a good club remix of the song. Enjoy!
Britney Spears – Piece of Me (Alternative Video)
This alternate video of Britney Spears‘ Piece of Me from her album Blackout was uploaded hours ago. This has been one of my top Pop songs for a long time. It was catchy and something I immediately wanted to dance too. And the dance sequence inside the bathroom is very memorable to me.
I’m impressed with Britney’s splash of releasing alternative content of her music. I was totally in love with the dance video version of Till the World Ends. In the era of Web 2.0, this is a simply brilliant strategy to keep yourself in the mindspace of music listeners. Go Brit, Go!
Way back in 1995 when Avril Lavigne was still in grade school, there was another feisty Canadian female burning up the charts. Her name was Alanis Morissette, and her hit single “You Oughta Know” turned her from a little-known L.A. transplant into a girl power icon and ’90s poster girl overnight.
The first single off her first album for an American record label (Maverick, the only label that didn’t pass on her), “You Oughta Know” quickly gained national popularity, going into heavy rotation on MTV and inspiring a generation of young girls to get angry (like, fling your hair around menacingly and scream in your car angry) at the men who’d wronged them instead of just sitting around moping. The high contrast video of Alanis freaking out in the desert helped underscore the song’s emotional rawness, as did bitter, explicit lyrics like the oft-censored line about you-know-what in a theater. The weird rumor that the song was about actor Dave Coulier, best known as Uncle Joey from family sitcom “Full House,” only increased the song’s notoriety.
Alanis went on to release five more singles off Jagged Little Pill, staying on the Billboard charts for more than a year. She also cleaned up at the 1996 Grammy awards, taking home nods for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance and Best Rock Song (both for “You Oughta Know”), as well as Best Rock Album and Album of the Year. Although nothing she’s done since has matched the insane international success of Jagged Little Pill, she’s done pretty well for herself, releasing four more studio albums, recording a great episode of “MTV Unplugged” (which she later released as an album) and acting in various movies and TV shows, including Dogma (in which she literally played God), “Weeds” and “Sex and the City.” Not too shabby!
A fresh new song by Alanis Morissette, written for her one year anniversary with her husband. Enjoy!
