Passenger All The Little Lights Track-By-Track

The British troubadour Passenger is the latest addition to the You Oughta Know family, and it’s no wonder why. The plaintive poet’s song “Let Her Go” has already gone to #1 in sixteen countries, and is just starting to gain momentum on the charts here. His latest LP, All The Little Lights, has been championed by fellow YOK alum Ed Sheeran, and we got the chance to discuss all of the tracks on the album with Mike Rosenberg himself when he swung through NYC recently for the latest installment of our series Track-By-Track.

Everyone knows by now that Rihanna is just the kind of person who just simply doesn’t give a phuck. That’s why it’s not that much of a surprise that there are tons of pictures of her partying her ass off at the Kadooment Day Parade in Barbados; after all, why should this day be any different than any other day? However, one thing IS a bit different about this particular display of her bejeweled bikini bod — while we’re frequently treated to pics of a scantily clad RiRi on her Instagram, it’s fairly rare that she’s adorned with baubles so shiny and a headdress so feathery that Liberace himself just might be compelled to rise from the grave and demand that he get to try on her outfit.

With hundreds of thousands of fans roaming around Lollapalooza it’s easy to lose friends (especially in the service unfriendly Grant Park, Chicago). A few people came up with hilarious ways to keep track of each other: holding signs or objects in the air. While they were ridiculous looking, it also became a fun game of Where’s Waldo while trying to find the signs throughout the weekend.

Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of fans flocked to Grant Park in Chicago for the 2013 Lollapalooza music festival. The show, in its eight year at the Windy City, continues to be one of the best festivals. This year was no different. Headliner acts brought down the house, the weather managed to hold despite threats of rain, and outside of two acts, everyone showed up to the party. But with so much going on, it was hard to take it all in. There were tough music choices, characters of every kind running around and Shaun White to deal with.

On Saturday night we were lucky enough to catch Beyonce‘s headlining debut at the  Barclay’s Center as part of the ongoing Mrs. Carter World Tour! Obviously, she brought the goods. Big time. That goes without saying! But despite the epic coronation video that opened the extravaganza, and the fact that she essentially owned the place (along with Jay Z, obvs), the diva managed to keep things chill. She was the perfect host, putting her 18,000 guests at ease as she welcomed us to her family arena. Here are 15 of the ways Queen Bey kept it real in her home court!

Mumford & Sons Enlist Hilarious (And Famous) Stand-Ins For “Hopeless Wanderer” Video

by (@unclegrambo)

Mumford & Sons enthralled tens of thousands of fans in Chicago this weekend when they headlined Day 2 of Lollapalooza, a set that was met with near-universal raves. The band has pretty much accomplished it all over the last few years —winning Grammy awards, headlining festivals the world over, joining the You Oughta Know family, convincing megababe Carey Mulligan to enter a state of wedded bliss with lead singer Marcus Mumford—but that didn’t stop them from turning their gaze inward in an attempt to improve themselves. After doing some soul-searching, the band apparently recognized that there was one area in which they didn’t quite excel: Comedy.

Passenger All The Little Lights Track-By-Track

The VH1 You Oughta Know family is proud to welcome the British troubadour Passenger (aka Mike Rosenberg) into the mix. His song “Let Her Go,” one of a dozen tracks that make up the All The Little Lights LP, has already gone to #1 in sixteen (!) countries, including Australia, Ireland and Sweden, and is poised to become a major hit here Stateside, too. Passenger’s body of work is already drawing comparisons to fellow UK-based singer-songwriters like Ed Sheeran and James Blunt, and we has the privilege of sitting down with him a few weeks ago to discuss the stories behind each of the songs on All The Little Lights as part of our ongoing series, Track-By-Track.
