There are some songs that encourage you to slow down, take a deep breath, pull up a plush over-stuffed chair and contemplate life. And then there are songs that just want to make you leap up and down and fist pump, briefly pause to order bottle service, and then repeat. Rarely do these two kinds of music overlap -until now! Thanks to the magic of beat mixing machines, amateur and professional DJs are turning yesterday’s chill-out tracks into today’s party anthems. Read on to hear a few of the most unique and hilarious, featuring Fleetwood Mac, Dave Matthews’ Band, Enya, Michael Buble, and more!
All next week, VH1 will be counting down a list of the 100 Greatest Women In Music. Each weeknight at 10 p.m. ET/PT beginning on Monday, February 13, a new hour-long episode of The Greatest will air on VH1, each show focusing in on the merits of the best female artists of the last 20 years and change.
As a precursor to the next week’s reveal, we thought that we’d kick off the discussion by revealing this list of 14 women who ALMOST made the list. They’re all terrific artists in their own right, which just goes to show how amazing the full list is going to be next week. This list of the Almost Greatest goes, as follows (in alphabetical order, natch):
Christina Perri, Ciara, The Corrs, The Cranberries, Danity Kane, Duffy, Enya, Jessica Simpson, Lily Allen, Michelle Branch, Selena, Sinead O’Connor, Sugarland, and Vanessa Carlton.
To find out who DID make the list, be sure to watch VH1′s 100 Greatest Women in Music special (brought to you by Summer’s Eve) all next week on VH1! And be sure to make your voice heard by tweeting your support for your favorite female musician by voting in our new poll, Who Is The Greatest Female Artist of ALL TIME?
