Christmas Music That’ll Make You Dance

In: Donovan, Music

Hope everyone is having a very MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS. Even though, we’re taking the day off today, I thought I’d share this podcast with you. If you’re like me and been listening to Christmas music since the last week of November, you might be looking for a change. Sure, the classics from Ann Murray, Elvis Presley, Brenda Lee and the multitude of artists we all grew up listening to are great, but something different would be nice especially after almost a month of yuletide music. Perhaps something a bit more upbeat? If you said yes, then this one is for you.

The draglicious music maestro decided to remix some of your favorite Christmas tracks and created the ultimate Christmas dance party. Titled “Big Gay Yuletide“, the podcasts boasts 22 dance remixes ranging from Boney M, Mariah Carey, Bananarama, Natasha Bedingfield and many more. Check out what else is included in the mix below.

Top 5 Holiday (Christmas) Tunes

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

Before I begin, I want to state that I hope not to offend anyone with this article by referencing Christmas songs as I ramp up my Holiday spirit. Growing up sans religion, my family still took part in celebrating Christmas largely stemmed from our family’s religious background, eons ago. Yes, eons.

Now that we are less than a week away from Christmas 2009, and there isn’t a second of media our ounce of advertising space that isn’t spewing this messaging, I thought I should embrace the holiday season for another year. Naturally it’s Sunday, I’m at home with a Snuggie (thanks Alex) keeping me warm, I decided to YouTube my favourite Christmas songs and see the staged videos that go along with these gems.

Honourable mentions before I jump into my list go out to Rob Thomas and BeBe Winans’ duet My Christmas Prayer and Christmas Wrapping sung by The Waitresses.

List to my Top 5 List after the jump…

If this is what winning the $100,000 grand prize of NBC’s “The Voice” gets, I can’t wait to see what Melanie Amaro’s “X Factor” $5,000,000 grand prize yields. Javier Colon who beat out Dia Frampton for Season 1 honors recorded a duet with the fabulous Natasha Bedingfield for his first post-Voice album. IMHO, Bedingfield can do no wrong, so Javier is already off to a good start.

Before appearing on “The Voice“, Javier released a couple of albums for Capital Records in 2003 and 2006. Neither did particularly well which brought him on the reality singing competition. Having recorded R&B albums in the past, along with his performances on Season 1, I was expecting more of the same for his third studio album, “Come Through For You“. Instead, we get more of a poppy Jason Mraz meets John Mayer with an edge vibe. And you know what… I’m not hating it.

For his first ever music video for the album, he teamed up with Bedingfield. Both recorded their vocals in separate studios and never had an opportunity to meet in person. Thankfully, these two finally got to see each other when they filmed the music video. Here’s what Natasha revealed about the music video’s storyline and working with Javier:

“It’s a story about people who’ve fallen in love at a young age. It’s kind of like years later, when there’s more responsibilities — a house, a car, a dog. Sometimes you can lose sight of what really originally drew you together.”

“You never know when you do a duet what it’s going to sound like, but I feel like it’s a nice understanding and love of music that somehow makes us blend.”

The Cataracs Keep It “Undercover”

In: Music, Tyrell

This week, one of my favorite production duos, The Cataracs released a new song. To be fair, it’s not all that new as it was heard on the Usher tour this past summer. However, the Cataracs themselves stated on Twitter that this is one of their favorite songs they have ever put their soul into. After you listen to the bouncy track, you’ll agree that they really put some care into this one.

While the song doesn’t match anything we’ve heard from Campa and Cyranizzy in the past, it showcases a new sound that I hope continues to the powerhouse duo. The track definitely pulls in some funk influences while still remaining true to the production style that they became famous for.

I also adore the lyrics for this track – another departure for The Cataracs. Leaving bottles, booze and sex behind, the duo opted to sing to a former lover just to let them know they’ll always be by their side. I am hoping this track will be included on the duo’s forthcoming studio album titled 12 which I’m assuming refers to the year “2012″. Give Undercover a listen below.

Listen to “Undercover” after the jump.

Okay, I have spent the better half of the morning listening to the same song on repeat thanks to @mitchmckamey who sent me the first song released from the upcoming The Hunger Games film soundtrack. I am eagerly anticipating the official release of the upcoming movie in March and hadn’t even THOUGHT about the soundtrack until today! Naturally I was wildly excited when I logged into Facebook today and saw that Mitch had posted the first track on my wall, aptly stating, “This is perfect, no?”

My instant response (before even listening because I’m crazyballs like that) was YES! I have now listened to the song ten times in a row and quickly realized I need to share this gem with every other fan! The artist came as a bit of a surprise, being one of the biggest female pop musicians of the year. I definitely thought the movie would have an indie/hipster feel to its soundtrack, or even a harder, rock/metal sound. Imagine my surprise (and unbelievably glee) when I heard this stripped down artist performing a duet with an up-and-coming band…

Rihanna Drops “You Da One” Video

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

It’s finally arrived! After the track dropped as the second official single from Talk That Talk all the way back in November, You Da One has finally received it’s accompanying video. Rihanna had leaked a few pics from the shoot prior to it’s release but none of it lived up to what we were about to experience with this video.

Pulling a little bit of inspiration from her Rude Boy video and capitalizing on the popularity of the lyric video, Rihanna delivers once again, a unique video to compliment the single. Directed by Melina Matsoukas (who also directed her video for We Found Love), the duo shot the video in Northern Ireland almost a month ago.

The video features Rihanna channeling some Clockwork Orange and images leaked from the set earlier this month of her rocking a blonde bob and holding a black cane infront of a pink background. Too bad the resulting video is all done in mostly black & white. The motif of newspapers rings through as well which was the design of most of her Talk That Talk deluxe edition linear notes. Check out Rihanna’s new vid below.

10 Most Watched Music Videos On YouTube In 2011

In: Donovan, Music

The other day, Patrick wrote about the most viewed videos on YouTube in 2011. As you probably noticed, that list didn’t include music videos from artists from major music labels. Ergo, why Rebecca Black’s “Friday” topped that list and the likes of Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez were nowhere to be seen in that Top 10 list.

As luck would have it, YouTube has a separate list for established artists or as they officially refer to it as, “Most Watched Videos From Major Music Labels Globally“. Man, that’s a mouthful. On this list, you’ll find most of your favorites and surprisingly a few notable omissions. Even though, Adele, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears have topped several year-end lists from Best Song to Best Artist to Best whatever, the trio are MIA on this one.

So who made it? Since it’s a global list, some entries may surprise you. For instance, Pitbull shows up in three spots. WTF, dude must have a huge following in all the Spanish-speaking countries. I was also a bit stunned, yet happy, to see Jessie J’s “Price Tag” on this list. Love that song. See what other music videos YouTube watchers watched over and over and over and over again in 2011 below.

If you haven’t seen a Jenna Marbles video before, get to it! She’s a hilarious web comedian (with two very cute dogs) that says and does the most ridiculous things.

A couple days ago, she released a NSFW music video called, “Bounce That Dick” where she raps some dirty (and funny lyrics). Essentially, the video is in response to all of the songs that tell girls to shake their asses.

Marbles has flipped the script and is now calling all guys saying, “Baby show me what you’re workin’ with and make that dick twirl. Drop your hammer like Thor, and shake it till it’s sore. I want penises galore, in this bitch like Jersey Shore.” LOL. Yeah, you shouldn’t expect this song to be classy. The video was created & directed by Michael Gallagher
