T-minus five days until “Mad Men” is back on-air and this will get you pumped! Video artists Elisa Kreisinger and Marc Faletti have remixed the ladies of “Mad Men” singing a kickass mashup of The Supremes song “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.” You’ve probably heard the song before — but you’ve never heard it like this.

Just Because: You Needed Some Sade Today

So it turns out that Sade — yes, Sade — was the highest-earning British music act in the United States last year, beating out even Adele. We figured you could use a pic of her whipping her hair in the wind. Why not?

A few days ago, NPR’s “Talk Of The Nation” featured a psychologist named Vicky Williamson who specializes in earworms. That might sound like a particularly gnarly kind of parasite, but it’s actually the term for songs and melodies that get stuck in your head.  According to Williamson, 90 percent of people experience an earworm at least once a week, and she’s studying the phenomenon in the hopes of better understanding human memory. In the process she’s collecting data on the most common earworms along with potential cures (apparently reciting the British National Anthem will clear your head in no time). I am often plagued by awful commercial jingles, Nickelback choruses, and Jeff Buckley’s “Hallelujah” (yep, my life sucks). How about you guys? What songs always get stuck in your head? [NPR]

Pop Stars Now And Then

Well, this pretty much sums up how our modern musicians came to be. Skrillex was heavily influenced by the late, great Dial-Up Modem. Man, that guy was amazing.  [Pleated Jeans]

Dear BennyTheJukebox,

Thank you for learning to play rock anthems by Led Zeppelin, Gun N Roses, Deep Purple, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison and more on your melodica and posting your medley on YouTube. I think you might be my nerdy, musical soul mate. Let’s make beautiful music together. I’ll sing, and you can back me up on melodica. Maybe you can teach me how to play keytar? We can start that band I’ve always wanted to. We’ll call it Epilady Epidemic. And we can audition for “The Voice.” What say you?

Yours,
Ami

They could have had it all! But instead of rolling in the deep, Adele’s ex-boyfriend (this goofball) is releasing an album of his own called Dan 21 featuring sure-to-be-chart-topping hits like “Someone Like Me” and “You’re Welcome.” Sigh. It has just occurred to me that I could have monetized my breakup with Ex-Mr. Jessica much, much better. [Mirth Mag]

Fans of “Grey’s Anatomy” have long been captivated with the pixie-voiced Anya Marina, whose  song “Miss Halfway” wowed everyone on the show’s very first soundtrack. In the past seven years, Anya’s relatable lyrics have been featured everyone from “Twilight: New Moon” to “The Real World” to “How I Met Your Mother.” Oh, and if you’re haven’t heard her cover of rapper T.I.’s song “Whatever You Like,” you’re seriously missing out.  

Anya Marina’s next album comes out on March 13 and The Frisky has a 24-hour exclusive on her single “Notice Me” before it hits iTunes. So give it a listen after the jump and check out our Frisky Q&A with Anya Marina, which she was kind enough to do via email while she’s on tour!

“The Boy Is Mine” is a hard act to follow, but the new duet by Brandy and Monica is the very definition of underwhelming. “It All Belongs To Me” is their first song together in 14 years (do you feel old now?), but in all that time the best they could come up with is meh. But at least they’re singing about Facebook for cultural relevancy, right? I’m going to go listen to “The Boy Is Mine” on YouTube for some brainscrubbing. [Dlisted]
