A friend of mine took this picture at the American Ale House in State College, PA, and all I can say is I 100 percent understand the sentiment. I used to DJ pretty regularly, and people would come up to me all the time with requests. Sometimes they were nice, and sometimes they were pushy (a rock and punk DJ is probably never ever going to play that dubstep jam you really like). And sometimes — a lot of the time — they requested Michael Jackson. One time, a girl came up to me and requested a Guns ‘N’ Roses song and offered me $25 to play it. People are crazy (and really like to throw their money around).

But really, lay off the “Margaritaville,” okay?

A couple of weeks ago, we started talking about what version of the Rolling Stones’ song “Wild Horses” was our respective fave. Ami is partial to the recent “Voice” contestant cover, while I really love The Sundays version. I decided to put together a playlist with some of my favorite covers, alongside the originals (or at least an earlier version, in some cases) for comparison. The cover versions go first, with the original tracks following them, in the same order. Take a listen, and share with us in the comments your favorite cover song version.

Kelly Rowland Airs Her “Dirty Laundry” About Beyonce, Domestic Abuse, Fame

kelly rowland dirty laundry

Pause your Spotify and listen to Kelly Rowland’s new song “Dirty Laundry” (after the jump) — not only is it intense, but it’s really good. She sings about how hard it was for her to watch her “sister” Beyoncé get A+++-list famous while Kelly was “going through some bullshit,” mostly, it seems, an abusive relationship: ”Meanwhile this ni**a puttin’ his hands on me, swear y’all don’t know the half of this industry. She sings about lying to her mother and her friends about the abusive relationship, classically being isolated from help. “Kinda lucky I was in her shadow / phone call from my sister, what’s the matter / she said ‘oh no, you gotta leave’ / I’m on the kitchen floor, he took the keys / I was mad at everybody, I mean everybody, her her her her everybody,” she sings, adding that it took five years to finally get her life together. “I was trapped in his house … I was battered / He hit the window like it was me, until it shattered,” she sings. “He told me nobody love you but me, not your mama, not your daddy, and especially not B. He turned me against my sister, I missed you.” Keep reading »
