This Guy Can Sing “Let It Go” In The Voice of 21 Different Disney Characters

The best "Let It Go" cover yet?

When 22-year-old Brian Hull heard about a gift card contest that asked competitors to contribute their own cover of the song  ”Let It Go” from “Frozen,” he got to work on recording one — in the voices of 21 different Disney and Pixar characters. The vocal performance major at Dallas Baptist University brings the voices of Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Sebastian The Crab, Tigger, Goofy and many others with impersonations you have to hear to believe. It’s almost scary how many voices he can do in rapid succesion!  If this kid does not have a voiceover contact already, Disney doesn’t know what it’s doing.  [USA Today]

Please Enjoy Jonah Hill & Maroon 5 Singing This Awesomely Bad Song About Handjobs

Handjobs, Handjobs, Handjobs

Who would’ve thought a rock song about handies would include such awesome riffs? And who knew there were so many creative lyrics about them? Before Jonah Hill became the star of “Superbad,” he was music producer “Slick Rubin” in this several-years-old Maroon 5 video. (How young does Adam Levine look here?) The skit is pretty hilarious, but the song itself is surprisingly fun to listen to. Something tells me that if Jonah actually wrote lyrics for the band, we’d be hearing something a bit more creative on the radio these days … if it wasn’t bleeped out. [Gawker]

The “Breaking Bad” Theme Song Gets An A Cappella Cover

"Breaking Bad," A Cappella-Style

Admittedly a cappella is not for everyone. For those of you who are suffering from “Breaking Bad” withdrawal (all of us), have a listen to this a cappella cover of the show’s theme song. The Warp Zone, the group of comedians behind the video, have done the same for theme songs of shows like “Doctor Who” and “Game of Thrones.” And they do it in costume! Have a listen?

Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Hip Hop” Version Of “Achy Breaky Heart” Is Literally The Most Terrible Noise To Be Recorded In History

WARNING: Ears May Bleed

Everything about “Achy Breaky 2″ — the “hip hop” version of “Achy Breaky Heart” by the rapper Buck 22 and Billy Ray Cyrus — is an embarrassment to vibrations we call “sound.” I don’t think anyone would call this monstrosity “hip hop.” Or country music. Or a song, really. From the sexy alien ladies twerking, to the appearance by Larry King, to the reference to his daughter Miley’s song “Wrecking Ball,” it’s more like a cesspool of poor decision-making. Watch — and listen! — at your own risk. The Cyrus family might be a greater threat to the quality of American pop culture than originally thought. [YouTube]

Watch This Throwback Of Lorde Singing With Her Middle School Band

The hippest 12-year-old EVER.

What were you doing when you were 12? Most days, I was at the mall with my friends trying on too-big formal dresses for “someday” and browsing Build-A-Bear. Lorde, on the other hand, was already acting like a rockstar. This video of her performing with Extreme, her former band at Belmont Intermediate School in New Zealand proves that some people really do skip the awkward phase. Who has hair that good when they’re in middle school!? Check out how she works the crowd. The girl is already a star in the making, and her bandmates aren’t too shabby either. This cover of “Man on the Silver Mountain” by Rainbow is from the 2009 Intermediate Schools Battle of the Bands Finals. Not surprisingly, they won. [Jezebel]

Guy Talk: 7 Songs I Refuse To Listen To During Sex

timeout

I remember the first time I went back to Jessie’s apartment after a pretty awesome date. Like most first times, I felt excited and more than a little nervous. I already knew I liked her more than anyone I’d met in a long time, so the stakes were high. Also, we’d both eaten more cheese that evening than I consider ideal for hot sex.

I figured she was thinking along the same lines when she stopped me in the middle of wrestling with her bra clasp. (I’m about raw passion, not fine motor skills.) Instead, she crossed to her dresser, flipped her laptop open and punched up a Spotify playlist. I couldn’t help laughing a little when I recognized the beginning of Kelis’ “In Public,” one of the sillier sex jams of the early aughties. But the extra sway in her hips as she walked back to the bed shut me up.

I later found out that the playlist was straightforwardly titled “Sex Songs” — an ever-growing and evolving beast of a thing she’s been gradually adding to for years. It still forms the background to most of our bedroom-bound sex and I’ve come to regard it with considerable affection. Keep reading »

This Is What 28 Beyoncé Songs In 6 Minutes Sounds Like

A Cappella Beyonce

How could we have missed this? An a cappella group called Pentatonix (yes, people do a cappella outside of college) filmed a medley of 28 rapid-fire Beyoncé songs in only six minutes. All your favorites from the Bey ouevre make an appearance. “Say My Name”? Duh. “Survivor”? Check. “Single Ladies”? Yup. “Halo”? Obviously. Okay, some of these songs are from Destiny’s Child, but it still counts! The video was posted on YouTube in October, so it misses all the songs from Beyoncé’s latest album, BEYONCE. Maybe Pentatonix will do another one?  [YouTube]

Lea Michele Releases “Cannonball” Music Video

"I'll Fly, I'll Fly, Like A Canonball"

I generally find Lea Michele profoundly annoying. But you got to hand it to her: the girl can sing. Lea’s new song, “Cannonball” (from her solo album), is a total earworm. Even though she still belts out songs in her Broadway star voice, it works for her on this song like it wouldn’t for, say, Pink or Katy Perry. “Cannonball” has got a catchy hook and it’ll do really well in mashups. What do you think? [YouTube]

Listen To 56 Pop Songs In Just 10 Minutes

The Mashup Of All Mashups

2013 was a pretty memorable year for pop music, especially if you had lots of opinions on blurred lines and riding a wrecking ball naked. In case you need a recap of pop radio in 2013, musician Robin Skouteris made a mashup of this year’s top 56 songs and their videos. It exhaustively clocks in at just under 10 minutes! IMHO, the Katy Perry “Roar”/Taylor Swift “Trouble” part is the best. (Thanks, commenter LR52185!) [YouTube]
