Taylor Swift and Harry Styles broke up, and you know what that means: Revenge. Single. And just in case you think we’re being melodramatic, check out the ominous tweet that Taylor posted yesterday. What caused the breakup? Well, if you believe this horrifyingly dumb article, the couple parted ways because Taylor is an asexual “Antiques Roadshow” addict and Harry is a cougar-chasing nymphomaniac. Obviously we won’t know the full thinly-veiled truth until Taylor releases the breakup song, but for now, let’s do some speculating, shall we? Read on for a few potential song titles and sample lyrics… Keep reading »
This morning, I told you that Justin Timberlake hinted he would be making a very very very important announcement this afternoon. And he did. He posted this video to YouTube and to his personal website which, like, basically features him talking about people wondering when he’s going to put out a new album and then blah blah blah, something about the creative process, and then: “I’M READY.” For what? He doesn’t say. Instead we’re shown a clock counting down till sometime on Sunday (I’m sorry, I can’t figure out exactly when, I haven’t had lunch yet) when another announcement will be made. So, basically, Justin’s big announcement was that another big announcement will be made on Sunday, presumably about what he’s ready for. If it’s not a new album, and is instead something to do with his involvement in MySpace or another shitty rom-com or a finger in his butt, I will throw a fit. Just saying.
For much of the mid-2000s I had a side gig playing records. I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a DJ, in that I can’t scratch or really beat match, but some friends and I had a lot of fun DJ-ing a regular weekly party for a while. It was in Philly at a club that flaunted the smoking ban. We usually had a pretty packed house, and there was lots of dancing, usually started by me. This playlist is a ton of the songs that I used to play from that era, so feel free to play it for you own dance parties!

Save some room in the time capsule for this YouTube video from Tasia Ann Thomas, who performs the best pop hits of 2012 in this nearly seamless mashup. Check it out above! [YouTube]
Ready for a mega musical flashback in mashup form? DJ Earworm combined all of the biggest hits of 2012 into one 4-minute song called “The United State Of Pop,” and the result is surprisingly–or perhaps predictably?–catchy. A quick word of caution: if your end-of-the-year goal was to finally get the chorus of “Somebody That I Used To Know” out of your head, well, you might want to skip this video.

Over the past few years, Taylor Swift has become the queen of love songs, writing lyrics about relationships that everyone seems to relate to — the good, the bad, and the teen angsty. To celebrate her 23rd birthday, we’ve chosen a Taylor Swift tune to suit every kind of relationship, pointing out why her lyrics may seem to hit so close to home.

I am an unapologetic Britney Spears superfan, so I welcome every musical endeavor of hers with open arms, even if they include collaborations with lame dorks like Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas. Brit and Will.i.am debuted the video for their single “Scream & Shout” last night, and I have so many feelings about it. First of all, it’s a great, fun, if completely soulless club song. Second, Britney Spears sing-talks with a posh British accent, why? Third, she looks amaaaaazing. Fourth, less Will.i.am, more Britney please. It’s no “Toxic,” but I’m happy to have Britney flexing her pop muscle again.
You need some new music? Me too! I’d love to hear about what you’re listening to in the comments. But in the meantime, I’d like to share with you an oldie but goodie mix I made, of mellow-ish chillwave-y songs. Maybe you like? Listen up, after the jump! Keep reading »
If you’re in the path of Hurricane Sandy and are hunkering down at home, you’re going to need some tunes. I’ve put together this handy Hurricane playlist, filled with songs about, duh, hurricanes and rain. This is not to make light of a serious situation, of course, but we can at least add some background music as we all cross our fingers that the power doesn’t go out, our windows don’t break, and the shit is over soon. Take a listen, after the jump! Keep reading »
