It’s Spring Cleaning Week here at The Frisky, and in addition to tips on how to organize your makeup and clean out your dating life, I thought it would be an excellent time to pay homage to the movies, TV shows, music, and podcasts that we like to absentmindedly watch and/or listen to while we straighten up the living room and scrub the kitchen floor. After the jump, check out The Frisky staff’s preferred cleaning soundtracks and shows (including two votes for “The Real Housewives,”) and please share your own in the comments! Keep reading »

"It'll never be Manhattan."

Cat Power, she of the haunting vocals and paralyzing stage fright, is back with a new video for the song “Manhattan.”  Aside from a newish cropped ‘do, Ms. Power (Chan Marshall) seems like she’s got a new, more positive attitude. And for what it’s worth, those guys dancing in the subway are everywhere and they always seem to find the car I’m in. [MTV]

Watch her rock out to "Boogie Wonderland"!

This is Ronan, a three-year old sea lion living at the University of California at Santa Cruz, and she loves to dance. She first bobbed her head to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Down On The Corner,” and since then has rocked out to songs by the Backstreet Boys and Earth, Wind & Fire. Aside from being adorable, Ronan’s dance moves are actually kind of a big deal from a scientific perspective: researchers previously believed that animals could only keep a rhythm if they were able to mimic the sound vocally (which is why certain birds can “dance” to pop songs). “It may be that rhythmic ability is more widespread in the animal kingdom than previously thought,” says Peter Cook, one of the researchers who has been working with Ronan. Personally, I can’t wait for “So You Think You Can Dance: Animal Edition.” Ronan will be a tough act to follow. [YouTube via Huffington Post]

Here’s a shocking surprise: The Frisky staff are a bunch of total pervs. And even though I don’t write a ton about sex, I basically have the mentality of a 12-year-old boy, where I think butts, boobs and penises are super funny all the time. This morning, in a haze of cold medicine, I started thinking about my long-held theory that tons of supposedly clean pop songs are actually just thinly veiled missives on boning. Like come on, just what are Hall & Oates referring to when they sing “I can’t go for that, no no, no can do”? It’s definitely about anal.

After the jump, we ruin some of your favorite songs.

Science Says “Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye” To Songs That Get Stuck In Your Head

Science, always out there doing things like landing car-sized robots on the moon and then making twitter accounts for them, or discovering the particle responsible for matter having mass and then shutting down for “upgrades.” What has it ever done for you, personally these days?

It’s good to see some scientists tackling the important issues, like how to get rid of a song that’s been stuck in your head.

Unsurprisingly, researchers have found that the most effective way to get a song out of your head is to perform a mental task like solving a puzzle. Specifically, they used anagrams and Sudoku. You’ve got to hit something of a sweet spot, though. Read more…

Dear Jacek Korolko AKA The Guy Who Was Fined For Blasting Celine Dion Songs,

My love for Celine Dion is well documented, but it’s tough for me to find men who appreciate her majestic vocal stylings as much as I do. My current boyfriend, for example, could sum up his feelings about Celine Dion with a shrug and a “meh,” which upsets me to no end. You, on the other hand, obviously share my passion for Queen Celine, because you were recently fined £1,300 (nearly $2,000) for blasting her songs at high volume at your apartment complex in Bristol, England. Apparently your neighbors have been “very distressed at the unreasonable volume of music played often late at night,” but let me tell you something: your neighbors are idiots. Move in with me, and we’ll crank up the volume to “The Power Of Love” until all the windows shatter.

‘Cause I’m your lady,
Winona
