A few weeks ago, Donovan and I were discussing how lyric videos are our new favorite thing. What’s a lyric video may you ask? Well, when a singer releases a new single, instead of just have the song play over a picture of their face, the newest trend is to have your lyrics play out on the screen in a choreography of colors and backdrops. There have been some pretty awesome ones out there, but Cobra Starship has now topped the pyramid with their newest addition to the craze.

What makes this so unique is that instead of words just playing out on backdrops or photos of the artist, the video was created and then projected on to random surfaces throughout the city; bricks, garage doors, cardboard boxes and even an overturned couch.

Aside from the amazing production of this simple lyric video or really, music video, the song is quite a different flavor for the Cobra Starship but still stays true to their campy, lyrical style. The lyrics ring out, “Your daddy always said you should stay away from a fool like me, a fool like me / And when your mama sees me calling on your telephone, she hangs up on me, the bitch hangs up on me.” So great. Check out the track and video below.

Apparently, today is the official day for American Idol Season 10 contestants to release their debut music videos. We just don’t get one, not two but three alums from the past season showing off their first post-Idol offering. Winner Scotty McCreery, runner-up Lauren Alaina and gone-too-soon Pia Toscano go head-to-head-to-head trying to become the most successful singer from Season 10.

Based on the quality of the visuals, I would have to give the upper hand to Pia Toscano. Hers seems to be the most polished and financially-backed. That being said, the other two are targeting country listeners, so having a glitzy glamorous video isn’t exactly of the utmost importance. Check them all out below and see which one you like the best.

Everyone’s favorite 90s Saturday morning sitcom seems to be experiencing an resurgence lately. Whether it was Jimmy Fallon’s public plea for a “Saved By The Bell” reunion or Urban Outfitters selling Kelly Kapowski t-shirts that have been worn by Justin Bieber and our very own Rich, the Bayside High crew is as popular as ever. Admittedly, I’m a huge fan of the shows and all of it’s acid wash awesomeness. Long live Buddy Bands.

In a very unique marketing move, a short parody music video was filmed to promote “Final Destination 5″ hitting theaters this week. Not sure if it’s an official viral video sanctioned by the studio, but it’s certainly a creative way to promote the horror flick.

The music video, titled “New Romance“, re-imagines the teen sitcom as a cheesy horror flick. It was directed by the lead actor in the latest Final Destination flick, Miles Fisher. Watch as the characters of the show are maimed and killed in the halls of Bayside High or at their favorite diner. There’s even an awesome reference to Jesse Spano’s caffeine pill addiction. Watch the clip and I guarantee you’ll get a chuckle or two.

It seems that 2010/2011 has been the season of the comeback. From comeback tours to artists from the 80′s and 90′s releasing new singles, we have been treated some triumphant returns (and some serious flops). However, the newest early millennium comeback has got me real excited. Remember Evanescence and their smash hit Bring Me To Life. I owned that record and must have played a hole in it.

Returning with their new single What You Want, the band couldn’t be more excited to share with the world and more importantly their fans. The track belongs to a self-titled album that will hit shelves on October 11th. Lead singer Amy Lee had this to say about the first single:

“So, the song that I think is the first single is the song that wraps it all up. It’s got a cool meaning, a lot of great lyrics going on, it also just smacks you right in the face and it’s heavy and it’s great … I think that there’s a couple songs that meet that same criteria.”

The band has stated that this song has a different vibe for them but they really wanted it to be a it. I’m stoked for some new material from the group. This album has had multiple release dates which all got changed dating back to 2009. The reason? Production kept changing hands. Luckily, the group finally agreed on a producer and it sounds like the result was magical. Never settle is the lesson learned here.

HORRAY! It has finally arrived. The official video for my favorite song so far this summer, Moves Like Jagger. After the two met on the set of their hit show The Voice, judges and coaches Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine teamed up with his band Maroon 5 for a pop music smash hit. From the lyrics, to the harmonies, to the amazing concept, this song was destined to be a hit from it’s conception.

The video is a lot of fun as well. Between the multiple Mick Jagger impressions, we are treated to the also sexy Levine singing into the lens making all of us swoon (especially when his shirt is off). When Christina hits the scene, the party really begins. She looks fabulous and it’s obvious she is having a lot of fun. While the video might not be the most elaborate, I think it absolutely matches the style of the song. But, I will let you be the judge. Check out the new video below.

It seems like life is a drag for one, Mother Monster. On Twitter along with the message “You will never find what you are looking for in love, if you don’t love yourself,” Gaga debuted the look of her new single cover art for You and I. However, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Lady Gaga in drag as her alter ego Jo Calderone. He first appeared in September’s Vogue Hommes Japan.

Leaving her motorcycle rocker chick look behind, Gaga opts for a more rugged and mugshot-like looking photo op for her drag personality. I wonder if Jo makes an appearance in the upcoming video release. Gaga stated on Twitter that her 1,000th tweet would be the premiere of the You and I video. She is currently at 992. Only 8 more tweets to go! Are you looking forward to a new Gaga video? If you haven’t heard the song yet, give it a listen below. It’s actually one of my favorites from the album. It has that late 80′s/early 90′s rock feel.

Katy Perry is so close to tying Michael Jackson’s Billboard record, she can taste it. For the past couple of weeks, Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” has stalled at the runner-up spot on Billboard’s Hot 100. LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” has so far, kept Perry from scoring her fifth consecutive No. 1 track. Knowing that the window is closing in on her chance to make history, Katy is going to try anything to achieve a feat no one has done besides the King of Pop.

In order to boost up “Last Friday Night (TGIF)’s” airplay requests and single sales, she’s releasing a remix. Much like Rihanna did when she had Britney Spears guest star on “S&M”. In this instance, Perry is adding a completely superfluous rap to the track. I love Missy Elliott but think it’s highly unnecessary and brings nothing to the single. That being said, I gotta give Perry credit for chasing this record hardcore.

Speaking of records, Perry added another accolade last week. She became the first artist to spend 52 consecutive weeks in the Top 10. Before her, Ace of Base held the record by having singles in the Top 10 for 48 straight weeks. Perry’s “Teenage Dream” album is certainly living up to its title.

Jessica Sutta Sizzles In “Show Me” Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

A few days ago Tyrell shared my girl Jessica Sutta’s latest single, “Show Me“. As mentioned in his post, Jessica Sutta is my favorite former Pussycat Doll. That ain’t no lie. Even though Nicole Scherzinger is growing on me with her last couple of tracks, Sutta will always and forever be my PCD goddess. The fact that I’ve met this stunning beauty in person twice and she’s been nothing but down-to-earth and pleasant to me, has endeared her to me always.

Pushing my obvious bias aside, I’m absolutely loving Sutta’s new track “Show Me“. It’s the calibre of music I expect and hope for her, now that she’s embarking on a solo career. The busbee-produced track is steps above her last single “I Wanna Be Bad“. Being signed to Hollywood Records probably helps getting dibs on high-quality songs. It’s dance pop at its best. The label obviously agrees, since they greenlit a decent budget for the music video. Love Jessica, but her video for “I Wanna Be Bad” was a tad budget. I know it was made with friends and such, but still.
