It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin. This week’s got glitz, global appeal, and rock ‘n’ roll. Retro Reigning Sound, rockabilly Imelda May, emo Cavo, neon-tastic Cobra Starship, Swedish singer/songwriter Anna Ternheim, and glam god Patrick Wolf are our all-stars. Get into their groove, after the jump. Keep reading »
Taylor Momsen isn’t the only “Gossip Girl” star to be exercising her vocal chords. Leighton Meester (aka Blair Waldorf), has just made her voice known on a new track with Cobra Starfish called “Good Girls Go Bad.” Leighton only sings a few chorus lines, but she’s not bad! She’s got a bit of an engineered sound, but nevertheless, we’re all ears. Oh, and she looks gorgeous in this video. Jealous yet? ‘Cause we are. Oh, and you can forget sex videos now.

Do you remember what was playing when you lost your virginity? Someone at The Frisky lost hers to Willie Nelson [Oh, heck, it was me. -- Editor], which is an interesting choice, no? Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan lost his to Warrant’s “Cherry Pie,” and Cobra Starship’s Ryland Blackinton was listening to the Home Improvement theme song. In a Virgin Mobile survey, 25 percent chose “It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as the best song to lose your virginity to, which is just too sweet. But, like, how many guys have that in their iTunes? That song beat out “Feels Like the First Time” by Foreigner, “Like a Virgin” by Madonna, and “Give It To Me” by Timbaland. Basically, those choices make us want to vomit, they’re so clichÃ©.
