Old School Flashback: Mya’s Best Five Tracks

In: Donovan, Music
mya-greatest-hits

I love me some Mya and was a huge fan back in the day. The 34-year-old singer was a fixture on the Billboard charts during the 2000s. So much so, the publication placed her at the 97th position on their Hot 100 Artists from that decade.

You might be asking yourself what brought on this bout of nostalgia? Is Mya coming out with a new album. Hopefully so. Rather, a bunch of us are heading to check out the Grammy-winning entertainer’s show in Vancouver this Wednesday. It’s going to be an old school party. I can’t wait.

I thought it was the perfect time to honor the woman who’s sold seven million albums worldwide and provided the soundtrack to some really memorable times. I’ve selected and ranked what I think Mya’s best hits are. Obviously, “Lady Marmalade” makes the cut, but exactly where. Find out below.

True Blood: Top 12 Hottest Hunks

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The series finale of True Blood airs tonight and I thought it was the perfect time to re-publish this post which was originally published a couple of years back and edited several times since then.

While most of us watch the show for the storylines and plot twists, there are a few who tune in to watch the True Blood hunks drop trou. There’s so much homoerotism and hot naked asses during most episodes, its like watching a soft-core porn flick. Thank you HBO for all the “fangtastic” memories.

Over the years, I’ve swapped out actors such as Kevin Alejandro (Jesus) and Todd Lowe (Terry Bellefleur) for newbies joining the cast. In honor of all the hotness that the supernatural series has given us over the years, I thought I’d update the list one more time. Check out my revised True Blood Hotties list below. Let me know if you agree and be sure to place a vote in the poll.

top-videos-youtube-2014

YouTube recently compiled the most-played music videos for the first half of 2014. Not surprisingly with the entire planet having World Cup fever, a couple official anthems by Pitbull and Shakira for the sporting event cracked the Top 10. The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer also snatched a second spot thanks to her collaboration “Can’t Remember To Forget You” with Rihanna.

Frozen‘s “Let It Go” sing-a-long version, Chainsmokers viral “#SELFIE” and Iggy Azalea also made the cut. The honor for most-played video though goes to Katy Perry. Her “Dark Horse” visual has amassed a staggering 485 million plays. Check out the Top 10 below.

Clearly FOX 2000 Pictures know what they’re doing. On the heels of rumors that the studio is working on a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire, the 1993 hit movie tops a recent report by IHS Technology. The cross dressing Robin Williams vehicle was the most aired movie on basic cable the past year. According to the research firm, it was played 66 times. I can honestly say I didn’t watch it once during the report’s time period. Did you?

The remainder of the Top 10 is a hodgepodge of beloved movies from yesteryear. There really is no rhyme or reason. While Sleepless In Seattle making the cut makes perfect sense, I’m shocked that the poorly-received Catwoman landed on the list. I’m guessing it probably didn’t cost much to purchase the rights to air the Halle Berry stinker. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

out-magazine-power-50-list-2014

For the past several years, Apple CEO Tim Cook was top dog on OUT Magazine’s annual Power 50 list. For the 2014 edition, the 53-year-old has to settle for the runner-up slot. Ellen DeGeneres has reclaimed the most powerful title from the publication. The daytime talk show host stood at numero uno back in 2010.

“Everybody loves Ellen, and that’s one of the reasons she’s regained the top spot,” OUT writes. The magazine also cites DeGeneres’ epic Oscar selfie which broke the record of most retweeted post ever and briefly crashed Twitter.

For the past eight years, the publication has ranked powerful and prestigious gay men and women who have tremendous influence. The list is compiled of Hollywood power players, publishing magnates, political figures, web entrepreneurs and everything in between. It’s worth nothing Ellen Page who came out recently makes the list for the first time at No. 29. Find out who the LGBT cream of the crop are below.

greatest-rap-singles-ever

Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart turns 25 this year. For those who thought the genre was just a fad back in the 80s, I’m sure they also picked Beta or VHS ;) To celebrate the chart’s silver anniversary, the publication counted down the Top 100 hip-hop songs of all-time. Definitely a difficult feat. Rap has certainly evolved since the days of Ice-T and Salt-N-Pepa, but is still as dominant a force as ever. Believe it or not, even PSY’s “Gangnam Style” made the cut at No. 42.

I’ve only highlighted the magazine’s Top 10 tracks below, but here’s just a sampling of my favorite cuts to rank on the list but miss out on the top tier of the countdown:

Loungin” – LL Cool J (97), “Heartless” – Kanye West (95), “C’Mon N’ Ride It (The Train)” – Quad City DJ’s (90), “Jump” – Kriss Kross (76), “I’ll Do 4 U” – Father M.C. (72), “Funkdafied” – Da Brat (66), “Rump Shaker” – Wreckx-N-Effect (65), “Around The Way Girl” – LL Cool J (64), “Dilemma” – Nelly feat. Kelly Rowland (60), “I Got 5 On It” – Luniz (57), “Da’ Dip” – Freak Nasty (51), “In Da Club” – 50 Cent (37), “One More Chance / Stay With Me” – The Notorious B.I.G. (35), “Knockin’ Boots” – Candyman (34), “Treat ‘Em Right” – Chubb Rock (31), “Me So Horny” – The 2 Live Crew (28), “Drop It Like It’s Hot” – Snoop Dogg feat. Pharrell (21), “Lean Back” – Terror Squad (20), “Best I Ever Had” – Drake (14), “Whatever You Like” – T.I. (13)

Earlier this week, Katy Perry notched her 9th career chart-topper. After a slight misstep with “Unconditionally,” the 29-year-old bounced back with “Dark Horse.” To be fair, “Unconditionally” did peak at No. 14 which is respectable and a number most artists would die for. Truthfully, I’m surprised the track didn’t fare better considering its gorgeous visual. Meanwhile, “Dark Horse” still doesn’t have an official video but managed to reach pole position on the Billboard Hot 100. Go figure.

Perry is now tied at 10th place with Elton John, the Bee Gees, Paul McCartney and Usher on the all-time list. Just ahead of her are Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder (10), Whitney Houston (11), Madonna and The Supremes (12), Michael Jackson and Rihanna (13), Mariah Carey (18) and The Beatles with a whopping 20 No. 1 hits.

I thought it was the perfect time to look back at her career and rank all her chart toppers. For me, “Teenage Dream” is by far her best. Like leaps and bounds. No matter what version, remix or cover by another artist, the track is a winner. I never thought, Perry could release a more irritating single than “E.T.,” but she has. While clearly millions have warmed up to “Roar,” I still find it utterly irritating even after all this time. Not surprisingly, it’s my least favorite track by Katy. Check out how all her other hits rank.

Which Kylie Minogue Album Cover Is The Best?

In: Donovan, Music
kylie-minogue-kiss-me-once

Kylie Minogue just unveiled the album artwork for her twelfth studio album. The cover for Kiss Me Once is everything you’d expect from the diminutive dance diva. It’s flirtatious, sexy and flawless. It features Minogue putting her signature pout front and center behind water-splattered glass. I’m loving the dramatic red lips. As gorgeous as it is, I much prefer the artwork for her new single, “Into The Blue.” Talk about sexy. YOWZA!!!

With over 68 million worldwide record sales to her name, it’s clear the 45-year-old Aussie legend is beloved. Of course, more so in some territories than others. While North American masses have been hot or cold with Kylie throughout her career, the UK and her native Australia have remained loyal to their Queen Kylie.

As we await her 12th studio opus, it’s the perfect time to walk down memory lane and check out all her album covers. For the sake of this post, I omitted her numerous remix albums, compilations etc.. and just included official studio LPs. Check them all out below, along with my top five out of the bunch.
