Friday Face-Off: Songs For Lovers!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Aw shucks, we’re just feeling so ooey gooey inside that we decided to share some heartfelt love songs with you.

Friday Face-Off: t.A.T.u. Vs. Pussy Riot

Game time! The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics are well underway, and we think it’s pretty cool. Yeah, that was a winter “cool” pun. Since Russia is already in the spotlight this week for their celebration of sports, we’ve decided to branch out the Russian achievements and look at their musical success. t.A.T.u. and Pussy Riot are two marvelous (and outspoken) bands that have emerged from this  chilly country of borsht and blinis, and we thank them for all they’ve donated to the sphere of melodic madness. So vote now and tell us whether t.A.T.u.’s video for “All The Things She Said” or Pussy Riot’s “Punk Prayer – Mother of God, Chase Putin Away!” is your favorite.

Friday Face-Off: Jessie J Vs. Rihanna

Hey boys! Can you hear us ladies?! Jessie J and Beyonce are two fabulous female artists who give guys a shout-out in their music (and a feisty shout-outs at that). Sometimes the lyrics are ferocious, and other times they’re simply controversial (give a good listen and you’ll know when you blush). But whichever way you want to spin it, the songs are unbelievably addictive. Do you think Jessie J’s video for “Do It Like A Dude” or Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” is the catchier male call-out?

It’s no secret the weather has been a hot mess recently. Heh, we mean – cold mess. The polar vortex (yep, we’re getting technical on you) is moving cold air all across the USA, and baby we can feel it. But just because these frigid temperatures can be a bit of a buzz kill, doesn’t mean we can’t go on partying in the warmth of the indoors. And while we’re at it, let’s pretend we’re on the beach with some bootylicious bikini-clad ladies. Sound good? Read more…
