“I Got More Than a Feeling”

October 8, 2009

The perfect pastiche of pop past and present. Just a little pick me up for you Thursday afternoon.

“I Got More Than A Feeling” – Boston vs. Black Eyed Peas by Mad Mix Mustang.

“Three is a charm/Two is not the same/I don’t see the harm/So are you game?”

The original queen of blackout is back in the zone and out of control. I don’t know if it’s the new “Womanizer,” but it’s pretty catchy, the bridge is a strangely reminiscent of every Cascada song ever made, and the bass is infectious. If parents thought that “If You Seek Amy” was controversial, I’m sure that the PTA will love this gem.

Keeping it classy since 1981.

*If this video is taken down briefly, you can also catch a clip of the song on Perez Hilton’s website.

Don’t pretend you aren’t excited for Where the Wild Things Are.

Arcade Fire – Wake Up is the music in the trailer. The movie hits theaters October 16th.

Between Kanye’s interruption of Taylor Swift’s Best Female Video acceptance speech, Janet’s MJ Tribute, premieres of the Fame Music Video, “Twilight”‘s Extended Trailer, “This is It“, Michael Jackson’s unseen rehearsal footage doc, Lady Gaga’s suicidal performance and the ever obnoxious Russel Brand (no one wants to get in those pants mate), MTV’s 2009 VMAs was full of excitement. My favorite part bar none though was the finale duet by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys (minus Lil Mama…). Empire State of Mind is an infectious surefire hit blending rap, RnB, and classical music flawlessly. I’m not big into rap, but this song is seriously smooth.


“Hide & Seek”

August 16, 2009

In the beginning, Imogen Heap created “Hide & Seek.” She was not very well known at the time. And Josh Schwartz, creator of The OC said, “Let there be Hide & Seek in our season 2 finale,” and there was Hide & Seek in the season 2 finale. SNL saw that the season 2 finale was good, and they spoofed it. They called the spoof “hilarious”, and they called the original “shit.” And there was hilarious, and there was shit-the first year.

Since Imogen Heap released Hide & Seek, there have been several iterations of it. From its popularization by The OC, YouTube is besieged with SNL Dear Sister spoofs. Earlier this year, Love is a Story released an acoustic cover of Hide & Seek that was popular for awhile on electronic charts. Most recently, Jason DeRulo has sampled it for his track “Whatcha Say.” It’s got a distinct R n B flavor, and thanks to Imogen Heap, it’s extremely catchy. Check it out a clip of it after the jump.
