Dolly + Miley + Pentatonix = My Favorite Jolene

I am obsessed with this version of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.” This is Dolly, Miley Cyrus, and Pentatonix performing an acapella version of “Jolene” on The Voice the other night. When we first started dating back in 2007, Jay and I used to debate whose cover of this song was better. He always insisted that the White […]

Ironic: 2015 Edition

Alanis was on “The Late Late Show” with James Corden last night. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of my favorite album of all-time, Jagged Little Pill, she performed “Ironic” (actually probably my least favorite song from that album actually), with updated lyrics to reflect the year 2015. I recently learned that Jagged Little Pill was originally released […]

Meghan Trainor at Crabtree Valley Mall

So today, I took Zachary to his first “concert.” Jay is obsessed with that song “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor and played it several times during our drive to and from Long Island last week. As luck would have it, when he returned to work on Friday, he noticed a sign at the […]

642 Things to Write About Challenge: Week 48

I have wanted to do this topic since I first looked through this book way back in December 2012.  In high school and in college, I wrote about this song.  My dad played it for my sisters and I when we were younger and we couldn’t get enough of it.  I’ve always been fascinated by songs […]

Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience Tour in Raleigh

On Wednesday, November 13, 2013, Jay and I saw Justin Timberlake perform his 20/20 Experience World Tour in Raleigh, NC at the PNC Area.  It was absolutely awesome.  He performed songs from all of his solo albums for three solid hours, with one intermission.  Supporting him was his very talented back-up band, the Tennessee Kids. I’ve […]

Let’s Talk About ARTPOP

Every once in a while, I decide to be a music critic. I’m not very good at it, but I give it my best shot. Last weekend, I managed to acquire a copy of Lady Gaga’s album “ARTPOP” (ugh, why all CAPS?), due out November 12, 2013. I was a huge Gaga fan after her […]

“We Can’t Stop” as Doo Wop

I’m not ashamed to admit that I LOVE Miley Cyrus’s admittedly not-that-great song “We Can’t Stop.” I do. I have it on my iPod and it’s part of a playlist I listen to daily. It reminds me of when Christina decided to be Xtina and entered her “Dirrty” days. Man, it sucks to get older. […]

‘N Sync at the VMAs.

This. May have been 45 seconds long, but it made my entire night. I want that ‘N Sync reunion tour to happen. More than I want fetch to happen.

Lady Gaga’s “Applause” is Out…

Well.  I guess another song from Lady Gaga’s upcoming album, ARTPOP leaked and unlike “Burqa”/”Aura” (I don’t know what the official title is) that leaked last week, this one is thankfully a return to that straight up pop sound that she does so well.  I already like it better than 80% of Born This Way.  There’s […]
