Let’s face it: the world is full of love songs. Full of them! There are countless ballads about unrequited love, scores of tunes about the very first kiss and, of course, tons of painful break up songs. You know what’s far harder to find: love songs about long-term relationships.
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. But don’t worry – they’re not too mushy, they’re just totally awesome. Do you think Mary Lambert‘s video for “She Keeps Me Warm” or Paramore‘s “Still Into You” is the better song for lovers? We love them both (and you!) so we need your help to decide. Hurry chocolate is running out! We mean time. TIME is running out. Sheesh, someone better get us a chocolate heart ASAP.
Ahead of Paramore and Fall Out Boy‘s summer tour, Hayley Williams and Pete Wentz play a little game of “Who is most likely to…” The musicians were put to the test when VH1 challenged them to answer questions related to eating craft services, quitting music to live on a farm, starting a Twitter feud, or getting left behind on a tour stop. Apparently the last one has happened a few times. Has either band ever heard of the buddy system?!
After spending Monday evening in Queens with J. Cole and Tuesday night in the Bronx with Janelle Monae, night three of VH1′s Super Bowl Blitz made its way to the borough of Brooklyn. Temperatures outside of the Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg last night dipped into the single digits, but things could not have been ANY hotter inside as emo warriors Fall Out Boy frenetically worked their way through 12 high energy songs in the course of an hour, including one that featured a very special guest.
Hey, Paramore fans: Want to be first to hear a special announcement from Hayley and the band tomorrow?
It was a big week for country acts in the wake of the Academy of Country Music Awards, but Paramore still managed to snag the No. 1 spot. Here’s a look at this week’s Nielsen SoundScan sales figures:
After a turbulent couple of years, Paramore is officially putting the past firmly behind them with today’s release of Paramore, the band’s first album since the acrimonious departure of the Farro Brothers. The patron saints of the Warped Tour generation (as our own Jim Shearer dubbed them) have already knocked Justin Timberlake off the top of the iTunes charts, as their massive fanbase has been downloading their own official copy of the album in droves today. Before the band taped their segment on Big Morning Buzz Live, we were able to grab a few minutes with Hayley Williams, Jeremy Davis and Taylor York in a quiet conference room where we talked about everything from shadow puppets to Black Flag tattoos to their current “weirdly emotional” state of mind.
Is Jessica Simpson ever going to marry beau Eric Johnson? Is Adele going to give us a glimpse of her baby boy? What else besides singer, songwriter and actress is Kate Nash adding to her resume? All this in today’s Last Lap.
What’s in the new version of One Direction‘s “Kiss You” music video that wasn’t in the original? Which legendary rock band is Dave Grohl reportedly going to jam with? All this, plus a tease of Paramore‘s new album, in today’s Last Lap.
One of the most amazing things about the evolution of the music industry is that music is suddenly more accessible than ever. The days of having to go out of your way and make a special trip to a record shop are long over.
