I recently looked over my "Favorite Songs" list, and I realized something: My list contains very few rock songs. Now, if you know me, you'd know that I enjoy a good rock piece, such as "Human" by Carpark North. This song provides a rare, supernatural feel that you don't often get from pure rock, showing that - ironically - rock rolls.

Yep. Candy rapping. So simple, yet so complex. Can you make a rap with names of more than 20 candies? DeStorm can with 40, and the story in the song makes sense. So, be a Smartie and click the "Read More" button!
After The Voice last Wednesday, the entire world was rocking to "Moves Like Jagger". It was #1 on the iTunes charts until earlier today, when it was taken off its pedestal. However, was its incredible showing strong enough to take the #1 spot away from a fading Adele in "Rolling in the Deep", or did another song take away the top spot?

That's right! Class clown Weird Al Yankovic's most recent album, "Alpocalypse", was released earlier this week. As always, it's filled with funny parodies of songs from many genres, including rock, pop and hip-hop. However, one song stands out as the ultimate topper from "Alpocalypse". What is it? Read on to find out!
Adam Levine's recently picked his game up a notch. With The Voice, "Moves Like Jagger" and "Stereo Hearts", he's successfully become a face in the music industry. However, will he be able to keep that streak alive in the future with "Never Gonna Leave This Bed"?

Britney Spears has successfully pushed "I Wanna Go" into the limelight with a great video. Don't get me wrong - it's no "Last Friday Night" - but the video for "I Wanna Go" has carefully been crafted with insight to Britney's past, among other things. Wanna watch it? Read on!

Hey, guys! Right now, the power keeps flashing on and off where I live, so I may be a little late posting this. Why is it doing this, you ask? Well, a powerful thunderstorm is crashing through my neighborhood, mauling everything in sight. Not to worry, though - it's only given me motivation for this week's "Favorite Song", Kaskade and Adam K's "Raining." This song "melts in your ears", and is a great, enjoyable piece for anyone and everyone!
It's finally here! The complete version of "Talk Talk Talk" was released worldwide hours ago. Although it's destined to become nowhere near popular in America (leading to a 1-week stint on the Fab 50, most likely), this should be heading on a path to success in the UK and Australia. Did the song live up to the 4 years we've been forced to wait for a new Darren Hayes song? Read on to find out!

I personally believe that this is the greatest song Gareth Emery's ever worked on. Providing the perfect mix between a soothing, soft entry to the song and an extravagant, powerful, hip electronic instrumental, "Sanctuary" is sure to be loved by any fan of electronica.

This week's YouTube video is a little different. Rather than being an artist's song or cover, this is actually a mashup of some of the greatest hits in the UK from the last year. Featuring everyone from Example to Jessie J to Far East Movement, this video really packs a punch, and definitely shouldn't go unnoticed!

You've seen The Voice, right? Since American Idol's lost Simon Cowell and turned country, The Voice has become one of the most popular music talent shows. Much of its success is attributed to the coaches (Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera), who are all extremely good artists in their own right. Proof of this comes from Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera's song "Moves Like Jagger", which is set to premiere on The Voice later tonight.

Katy Perry has been living a "Teenage Dream" since even before her album came out. She's recorded her fifth top 40 single from the album with "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)", and it looks destined to become her fifth #1 single from the album. However, has it already hit that hallmark rate on the Fab 50? Read on to find out!

You heard it here first... Well, probably not. Anyways, the folks at Glee realized something: "All of our kids are supposed to graduate next year!". How do they make up for that? To start a reality TV show, of course! The winner earns a 7-episode arc on Glee, with their stay hopefully lasting longer! Who will win? I'm probably wrong, but see my predictions after the "Read More" button!
OK. Blogger, screw you!
Now that I got that off my chest, I would just like to explain why I'm throwing out curses left and right. Well, I was trying to clean up my draft pages in the new Blogger Draft. UNDER DRAFTS, I clicked "Select All" and clicked "Delete". Lo and behold, it deleted EVERY SINGLE POST except for my most recent 10!
If anyone would like to help or has info from any previous articles, please reply here. Thank you for reading, and I hope that you stay coming to my page and won't be affected by the changes too horribly!
That's right, Eminem and Royce da 5'9" have reunited again for Bad Meets Evil! With a song featuring Bruno Mars' velvety voice in "Lighters", this song is an unexpected win for both rap lovers and haters. Disagree? Feel free!

The title really says it all. I already thought this song was going to become a #1 hit, but now "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) is destined for eternal stardom after one of the best music videos ever created, capitalizing on the craziest things in pop culture from now and in the past!

After the 2008 Gym Class Heroes album "The Quilt" bombed, Travie McCoy went on a semi-successful solo run let by hit song "Billionaire", which featured Bruno Mars. However, that has since come to an end, and Travie and two-hit wonder Gym Class Heroes are working on their next album, "The Papercut Chronicles II". Their first single since reuniting? "Stereo Hearts", featuring The Voice judge Adam Levine, which was released earlier this week. Will this song propel Travie and GCH back into the music mainstream?
Hey! Don't write this song off yet! My local radio station, although incredibly crappy, played this song nonstop, along with Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" and Sheryl Crow's "Soak Up the Sun". I'm serious, it's like they'd never heard R&B in their life! Anyways, their incessant playing of the song made me fall in love with it while going to and from school. Everything in this song makes the rebel in you cry out - which I've always loved, such as in the Kaiser Chiefs' "Never Miss a Beat"!

Adele charges to the top of the charts again, after somehow retaining both the #1 spots in airplay and sales in America. Will anyone else have anything for Adele anytime soon?

Bravo is the king of reality TV. Some of the best shows have come from Bravo, including Top Chef and Project Runway. They have recently come out with the songwriting reality TV show Platinum Hit, and trust me; it doesn't disappoint! My predictions are after the "Read More" button, and watch the show at 10:00 P.M. EST in the US!
Wow. That's the first of many things you'll be saying after you hear this song for the first time. In a freaky mashup of Cascada and Barbie Girl, Ultraviolet Sound pulls out an awkward, yet endearingly catchy and infectious song that you won't be able to stop listening to for days on end.

Of all of the Disney stars turned music artists, Selena Gomez may be the one that's most professional. Too bad that hasn't been reflected through her music as of recent, after her single release of "Bang Bang Bang" has yet to surpass sales of "Who Says" on any given day.
