It's Monday, I don't have a specific blog entry in mind, so here's a random mix of music stuff for a Monday Music Moment.
I. First off, this performance is currently blowing my mind.
If you're a dummy (if don't nobody want you, don't nobody need you) and don't wanna watch the whole thing, just fast-forward to around 5:00.
DIDN'T WE x 3 = AMAZING!
II. Brooke Hogan, I'm happy for you and I'mma let you finish, but Adam Lambert has the worst album cover of all time.
OF ALL TIME. (Is this joke played out yet?)
Even though Jeremiah likes to bother me and defend Glambert by saying that the cover is purposely over-the-top or whatevz, it's still ugly. You can have aims to be 'purposely (fill in the blank)' and still come out with something good. Drag Me To Hell is a horror movie that is purposely campy and it works out perfectly. Rhonetta is purposely ghetto fab and we love her for it. This album cover just sucks.
III. I think music videos are snoozefests lately, and I rarely find myself watching a video more than once. But I actually really like the video for Shakira's new single, "Did It Again." Based on this video and her last video for "She Wolf," I think Shaki is one of the few contemporary musical artists who is making interesting videos.
IV. Here's the thing I would change about Glee.
I really wish the show incorporated more music that actually had something to do with the storyline. Rachel singing "Take A Bow" (1,000x better than Rihanna) was one of my favorite moments of the series, even though I hated that song before it appeared on the show. Another of my favorite moments was when Mercedes sang "Bust Your Windows."
Know what those songs have in common? They were related to the storyline and were performed in a more traditonal 'musical' fashion. I like some of the songs that are performed just... for fun (?), but overall, I think the show has too many of these songs. Mr. Schuster is cool, but I don't need to see five solos of him dancing around the room awkwardly. Also, I'm still waiting for "Papa Don't Preach."
