Tween Bro And Sis Show The Foo Fighters How It’s Done

Irish brother and sister Dylan and Lauren McBride really like the Foo Fighters track “Everlong.” They also happen to be gifted musicians — and in this clip from 2010′s Oxjam Electric Picnic, the pair manage to win over a crowd of opinionated adult music fans with their cover of the hit song. This is so good it makes us want to (finally) learn how to play acoustic guitar. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Florence + The Machine Get “Addicted To Love”

Florence + the Machine‘s cover of “Addicted to Love” has been a regular on, oh, pretty much every mix CD I’ve made in the past six months. Something about Florence Welch’s voice just turns this classic ’80s track inside out. And then today, PopWrap posted a photo showing Florence in front of the iconic Robert Palmer girls. It’s not just a Photoshop job—the women are still in black with red lips and white guitars, but their styling has been updated for 2010, complete with Snooki poufs and strapless dresses. Which leads me to think: maybe a video is in the works for the Florence version? I am crossing my fingers that this is the case. After the jump, the original “Addicted to Love” video. Just because.

Jorge Garcia Joins Weezer On Stage

Rivers Cuomo and the dudes of Weezer aren’t just obsessed with unraveling sweaters—they’re also big fans of “Lost.” Hence, why they decided to call their new album Hurley and to use the character’s face as the album cover. Well, at an event last night, the band was actually joined by none other than Jorge Garcia. He helped them sing “Perfect Situation.” We say put that large man in stripes, get him a pair of glasses, and make him a permanent part of the band! [EW] Keep reading »

We Like: Rap Songs Celebrating Smart Ladies


Let’s face it: rap and hip-hop are not known for being particularly lady-friendly. (Ludacris’ “Move Bitch,” anyone?) That’s why we especially love Flavorwire’s collection of rap odes to smart women. Like The Roots’ track, “You Got Me,” featuring Erykah Badu. In it, Black Thought praises his girl: “She taking classes abroad/She studying film and photo flash focus record/Said she workin’ on a flick and could my clique do the score/She said she loved my show in Paris/At Elysee Montmartre.” Check out the other selections at the link.
