Get Your Rocks Off: John Hughes’ Hot Jams

The late (tear) writer/director John Hughes had great taste in women and music. The two go hand-in-hand, no? His soundtracks were jam-packed with tunes to rock out or get felt up to. Clearly, he was a genius! So, let's celebrate his life with a dance party of our favorite hits off the soundtracks for "Weird…

Get Your Rocks Off: Love Songs To Stop The H8

Last May, after the California State Supreme Court’s groundbreaking civil rights decision that same sex marriage bans were unconstitutional, 18,000 couples, including Ellen and Portia, were finally able to tie the knot! However, in November, Proposition 8 passed by a narrow majority, putting all those wedding bands in jeopardy! Luckily, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger listened to…

Get Your Rocks Off: The Ultimate Sex Mix

A study by the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine claims “degrading sex lyrics" inspire impressionable, virgin teens to hump for the first time. While we thought this whole debate was put to bed back when Elvis thrusted his pelvis, the doctors wanted to test today’s hottest Billboard tracks on teens. To their credit, the…

Get Your Rocks Off: Happy Birthday Bowie!

Forget Christmas. On this day in history, the glam messiah, David Bowie, was born. Although it isn’t one of those official holidays recognized by the Post Office and the bank, January 8, 1947, was, in fact, a day that literally rocked our world! While we have no confirmation that Bowie danced himself right out of…

Get Your Rocks Off: Gringo Star Rocks On

Atlanta-based quartet Gringo Star released their debut album All Y’all last month, and it’s a good thing they did because our iPod needed an injection of “Big Beat/Psychedelic/Southern Rock” music, as they classify their sound on MySpace. We’re not really sure what that means, but we’re fans of it. Not only will their jangly music…

Get Your Rocks Off: The Postelles Get Happy

When you listen to the Postelles, you want to start dancing, and not in a bump-and-grind kind of way. I was listening to "White Night" as I walked home one night, and I almost starting doing the Twist right there on the sidewalk. I was able to hold back, but you might not be able…

Get Your Rocks Off: Rhett Miller’s Perfect For Some Love

Rhett Miller doesn't just have a pretty voice. He's also quite a looker. So it's inevitable to not get that weak-in-the-knees feeling when he sings, whether it's with his prolific alt-country band, the Old 97s, or on his solo pop albums. Here, Rhett's picks for songs to get it on to. Although Rhett cautions, "Don't…

Get Your Rocks Off: The Filthy Youth’s Breakup Mix

We've already endorsed Ed Westwick, the lad who acts the role of playboy Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl. So, when we heard that he's in a UK-based band called the Filthy Youth, he became too perfect for words. Ed aside, the Filthy Youth's indie punk beats are the kind that make you want to drink…

Get Your Rocks Off: Girl Talk’s Songs To Send To Your Ex-Girlfriend…

Girl Talk is a DJ with a misleading name -- there's nothing feminine or cutesy about him. He does, however, happen to be a handsome lad by the name of Gregg Gillis. Gillis' songs are no less than genius. He manages to sample dozens of artists in a single track. On his latest album, "Feed…

Get Your Rocks Off: a’tris’ Love Is An Emotional Rollercoaster Playlist

Boston-based band a'tris got their early musical inspiration from an unusual source -- Sesame Street. Lead singer and pianist Mason Taylor started his musical career pounding away at one key on his Sesame Street keyboard, that of Oscar the Grouch, conveniently our favorite Muppet as well. Since then, the collaboration between music and what's o…

Get Your Rocks Off: Ohbijou’s “Frisky On Land & Water” Playlist

The perfect Sunday, in my opinion, would involve eating a delicious breakfast of freshly made waffles, exchanging a few kisses, and reading the newspaper (all without leaving bed, of course). The soundtrack to this perfect Sunday morning would be the Toronto band Ohbijou. The seven-piece group plays delightful music that's quiet but not too quiet…

Get Your Rocks Off: Craig David’s Favorite Sultry Booty Jams

Remember Craig David? He was that hot, suave soul singer from the U.K. who had a huge hit in 2000 with the song "7 Days". He hasn't been big in the U.S. since, but his star has continued to rise in his native country. His newest record, Trust Me, which critics are seriously buzzing about,…

Get Your Rocks Off: The Heavy’s Playlist Of Songs For The Pissed And Broken-Hearted

This British soul band has been described as sounding "like Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Pusherman’ resurrecting Led Zeppelin and the exiled spirit of Cassius Clay" making it hard "not to fantasize about Pam Grier fighting off her pimp with a broken bottle." Heavy, indeed. Their debut record, Great Vengeance & Furious Fire came out in the U.S.

Get Your Rocks Off: Nina Persson’s Heartbreak Hymns Playlist

Chances are, you probably remember Nina Persson as the angelic front woman for the band The Cardigans -- remember their hit "Lovefool"? That was some goodness. Nowadays, Nina is still a member of The Cardigans (who released Super Extra Gravity last year), but she's also got an amazing side project called A Camp, described a…

Get Your Rocks Off: The Frisky’s Single Gal Date Mix
