Tori Amos’ New Song “Trouble’s Lament” Is Pure Tori

*** Fans Self ***

If you were a certain type of teenaged girl, your inner emotional landscape was set to a channel of all Tori Amos, all the time. As someone who still has deep emotional connection to Little Earthquakes, I’m already losing my shit over the first song from her new album. “Trouble’s Lament” is CLASSIC TORI and gives me hopes for her upcoming album, Unrepentent Geraldines, out on May 13. Give a listen: I think you’ll love it as much as I do. [YouTube]

“This Is A Trent Reznor Song” Is An On Point Parody Of Nine Inch Nails

Trent Reznor Song Parody
Are We Sure This Is A Parody?

You guys, I love Trent Reznor and am a huuuuuge Nine Inch Nails fan. Like, I have stopped being friends with people because they said something mean about Trent once at a party when they were drunk and “Capital G” started playing on the host’s iPod shuffle. And despite my fierce loyalty for Trent (or perhaps because of it?), I cannot stop laughing at this amazing NIN parody song/video from comedian Freddy Scott. Everything about it — from the music to the lyrics to the strange, dark video — is absolutely perfect. [Rolling Stone]

Postmodern Jukebox’s Klezmer Cover Of Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” Is Actually Great

"Talk Dirty"

Jason Derulo and 2 Chainz’s song “Talk Dirty” is a corny and vaguely racist ode to fucking women all over the globe, London to Taiwan. Leave it to our favorite cover band, the unbelievably talented Postmodern Jukebox, to give it a klezmer remake that actually makes the song more listenable. The best part is when the singer Robyn Adele Anderson starts singing in 2 Chainz’ part in Yiddish, which she apparently translated herself. All pop radio forever should just be these people.

A New Twist On The Song

There is no such thing is too many excellent covers of Pharrell’s hit song “Happy,” and this jazzy, acoustic cover proves it. Enjoy the instrumentals by David Wong, Clerida Eltime, Bryan Mulholland and Josh Kinzler! I dare you to listen without smiling. (And then listen — if you haven’t already — to this adorable children’s choir from Detroit cover “Happy” with vocals. I think we have 2014′s new “Call Me Maybe” and “Somebody That I Used To Know”!
