We quite enjoy when love songs aren’t about true love. Props to Whitney Woerz for not defining a relationship status in “Love Me Not”. Not only does she have consignment-store-chic, she has tons of subtle confidence.
While we love love, just enjoying some lovin’ is fine, too.
But if you decide to label things, Whitney, write a song about it. We’re probably gonna love it.
She’s a Disney star, which means she sings, too. We’re okay with that. Meg Donnelly’s “Smile” makes us, indeed, smile.
Just come back and watch this video if the weather is disagreeable and your disposition is gloomy.
Ah… all better now.
We usually want to roundhouse-kick a Disney "starlet" (ie: pain in the booty) in the head. But not this time. So... way to go, Meg!
“Bones” is a song from Culture Wars. Cool song. We hear actual instrumentation, a real guitar, and the lead singer’s voice works. But let’s watch the video:
Crack Wise has three takeaways from this video:
One: This chick is gonna get a lot of ball grease on her. And then more later if dude plays his cards right. Wink, wink.
Two: Why don’t we ever see a hot chick dancing like this during our bowling league? All we get is some two-tons-of-fun female in a four-sizes-too-small t-shirt with nacho cheese sauce stains, and her whale tail hangin’ out while dancing around to “Pour Some Sugar on Me” like she’s Demi Moore from Striptease.
Three: R&B artists Bell, Biv, DeVoe warned us to “Never trust a big butt and a smile.” In the alt music world, never trust a skinny chick in army boots.
Oberhofer (short for: Brad Oberhofer) has this new tune out called: “Dreamt I Was Gonna Be Your Man.”
“Usually, musical ideas come to me through observing the light in darkness, the darkness in light, and sometimes through observing the darkness in darkness. Not often enough do they come from observing the lightness in light, and the potential chaos that lies within it. This song is about a dream that came true,” said Oberhofer.
Sometimes, we believe artists just say things like the above to sound cool. Cuz we don’t know WTH he really means. What we do know, is that we find this song quirky. And the video—you’ve got to see it and get that retro vibe.
Oberhofer is like some sort of superhero, and since we’re accident-prone-- this is awesome.
Personally, we think Oberhofer is The Hoff’s younger, alter ego. Both musicians; both got some type of German-lovin’ going on; both with questionable hair….
FYI: We saw this same fuzzy/furry coat at Target… so we need to have it so we can channel our inner pop star.
OMG! Christmas arrived early! We might be shedding tears of joy. Do you know how much we love William Shatner's spoken word records?!?!
Shatner Claus: The Christmas Album is a MUST for your holiday mood-setting. He’s recruited an all-star musical cast to accompany his epic narration: Henry Rollins, Billy Gibbons, Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren, Brad Paisley, and so many more.
Just listen to this:
The only good shat that exists…
The holidays are 50-50 for people. They either love this time of year, or hate it. And there are reasons to support both sides. With the challenges that some people feel at this time, Brandon Heath’s song “King of Kings” provides both hope and joy for the holidays.
Maybe you’ll connect to the spiritual message of this song, or just the seasonal side. But either way, may you realize that you are loved and there is hope.
Okay. We can’t stand being this sweet. We think it’s all out of our system…
We got excited when we saw the single “Seventeen” cross our desk. We thought it may be a cover of Winger’s “Seventeen” from the late 80s. But no. “Seventeen” from Welles is quite different. It’s a moody and introspective tune about the magical age of 17.
You can watch the video here, if you’re wanting an alt-pop vibe. We can take it or leave it.
He's got Kip-esque hair, but we prefer Winger. And for those of you hatin’ on Kip, he is a classically trained musician. Don’t hate him cuz he was pretty in the late 80s. We don’t hate him. We like him. A lot.
Bye-bye, Welles. Allow us a few moments to swoon over Kip Winger. That hair. That face. That chest hair... Who cares if he was possibly felonious.
Who doesn’t love (even if it’s secretly) “Who Let the Dogs Out” from Baha Men?
Their latest fun tune is “Bumpa”. True to style, you’ll feel like dancing around with a tropical adult beverage in your hand. And with these ingenious lyrics, who could blame you:
“I wanna see you shake your bumpa, shake your bumpa
I wanna see it clap like thunda, clap like thunda”
We're not sure we can make it "clap like thunda" unless we have digestive issues. Otherwise, it sounds painful. We can make it jiggle like Jell-O, though.
Now go and listen to the wisdom of Baha Men and do what they say. Shake yo bumpa until you can’t shake no mo!
If you ever played an instrument back in school, you had a certain “look.” Usually, glasses, braces, some pimple-action, and slightly greasy hair.
But you loved being a band geek, because music is neato.
You may have even dreamed one day of growing up and playing music for a living and looking half as cool as Lindsey Stirling while doing it.
We admit—we have a complete girl crush on Lindsey. I mean, seriously, she’s a total bad-ass. Like, she looks smokin’ hot playing her violin. And, she could probably use that violin to beat you. Even better!
Check out her latest: Carol of the Bells.
We’re sad we haven’t heard, literally, of Metric. The Canadian indie poprocksters have been around since the late 90s. Our ears are quite happy with their latest single, “Now or Never Now.”
We feel like skipping around the house in a snazzy pair of Skechers and cold-shoulder sweatshirt. And look cool like Emily does in this pic.
But instead, we’re livin' somewhere between Target chic and Walmart cheek.
Put your eyes on this instead:
