"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.

I Don't Know About You, But I'm Feeling 32

Don’t get me wrong, I love that Taylor Swift song “22.” I just don’t remember what 22 was like anymore. Breakfast at midnight? Who is still awake at midnight? “It seems like every day my newsfeed is crowded / too many newborns / uh uh uh” … yup, that’s my life. [YouTube]
