Amy Winehouse Was “Freaked Out” By Adele’s Success, Mark Ronson Reveals

[Amy Winehouse and I] spent a little time together and talked about [working together]. But, what little time we had, well, it was tense. She was in a bad state, God knows why.

Winona and I recently made a very important discovery: There is no foul mood that can’t be cured by a ’90s dance anthem. It’s like the music of the decade was specifically created with funk-busting in mind. Whenever you’re having a crap day, all you really need to do is find the appropriate ’90s tune… More »

Skip directly to 2:19 for the “Muppet scatting” portion of Karmin covering “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster The People. Thank you, Amelia, for the term “Muppet scatting”, by the way.

New York DJ Scott Melker wanted to make a remix of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” that would stand out, so he decided to mash the softspoken Australian artist with the late Brooklyn rapper Notorious B.I.G. “Everyone has remixed Gotye.
