The Monkees sing uplifting music, while The Ramones do not. So when Micky Dolenz Tweeted this picture of him and bandmember Peter Tork with Marky Ramone at the Chiller Convention, I just had to share it with you. Even in music opposites do attract!
Maybe Marky would consider touring with The Monkees since they are still on the road sharing their tunes with the world. You know maybe we can a Monkeeified version of I Wanna Be Sedated or a Rock’n'Ramoned version of I’m a Believer. How awesome would that be? I would pay the big bucks to see that. A girl can be a Daydream Believer, right?
In a word…no! Psy’s new song and dance to Gentleman is a like a boring Gangnam Style. It was such a yawner, I struggled to make it all the way through. What do you think? Do you think he is a one hit wonder?
Head Like a Hole is one of the most angry songs out there (at least the way I sing it) and it has been mashed up with one of the happiest (Carly Rae Jespen’s Call Me Maybe); and it strangely works. It will f*ck with the hole in your head, so much so your black sole will see the light!
Thanks to PomDeterrific coming up with the most unique mashup that works just as much as it messes with you!
Now when it comes to Nine Inch Nails, I am sure they won’t be bowing down to him, but I am! Take that NIN for putting on sh!tty concert and messing up this song when I saw you all those years ago. A girl never forgets a horrible concert!
If you are like me, then you are so sick of Gangnam Style. Well Psy told MTV News that he is ready to let the song gallop into the sunset. He said, “Being in Times Square on New Year’s Eve is already special — it’s the biggest stage in the universe — plus it’s my birthday, so, with all that, it may be the ending of ‘Gangnam Style,’” Then he added, “I mean, what better way to do it? It’s my biggest and most meaningful birthday.”
While it won’t be the end of him performing the song completely, it is in its final lap so he can work on some more music. He doesn’t want to be a one hit wonder like those other bands whose songs we dance to at weddings and Bar Mitzvahs like the Macarena, the Electric Slide and so on.
Michael Stipe continues to walk red carpets with the most depressing expressions, and yesterday he added another sad picture to the collection at On The Road premiere. I am not sure if it was his normal sad face, or it is because he heard how he sounded at the 12-12-12 concert. The haunt in voice was gone and that made me hurt.
Michael Stipe was out yesterday for an event and he looked like he needed to hear his song Shiny Happy People ASAP. What’s the Frequency, Stipe? Why do you look like It’s the End of the World as We Know It? It’s OK to smile, we won’t think any of less of you.
Dear Susan Boyle, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, You have all been dethroned by PSY on YouTube. His Gangnan Style music video now holds the title of Most Watched according to NDTV. That horse riding dance has been viewed over 805,055,375 times. OK so now that almost everyone in the world has seen that dance, can we please please please move on to the next musical fad?
After 35 years of being together, the death of their voice in 1997 and a reality show to find a new singer, INXS has finally decided to call it quits. Yesterday at a concert in Perth Jon Farriss announced that that would be their last show together as a band according to Sidney Morning Herald. No reason was given for their sudden split, but if you ask me it was 15 years too late. They should’ve ended the band after Michael Hutchence died. Without him they were never ever the same, he made them. He was a presence that could never be duplicated, no matter how hard they tried. I saw them in concert with him once and he really knew how to put on a show. For the encore he called the audience, and I do mean the audience, on to the stage and it was crazy. I never saw anyone do that before and never saw anyone do it again. Sadly a short time afterwards he was no longer with us. It was such a tragic loss to the music industry and still is.
3Penny Chorus and Orchestra has done their version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe and I hope that is the final version of her hit because no one can top this take of it. I mean seriously how do you do better than an orchestra and chorus? You just can’t.
I thought Glee would be the final nail in that song’s coffin, but I think 3Penny has officially nailed that coffin shut.
So now that I have declared the end for Call Me Maybe, can we make it official because I am so sick of that song.
The Monkees announced today that for the first time since 1997 Michael Nesmith is joining his bandmates on the road. The three surviving band members Mickey Dolenz, Peter Tork and Nesmith will play 12 dates starting in November and you get can get tickets to one of the dozen shows starting on August 18th. And you are going to want to get them because they will be playing their classic hits and some songs that they haven’t played together since the ’60s. Besides playing their groovy music, the night will also feature rare films and one-of-a-kind photographs for the fans to enjoy.
So go bananas for The Monkees all over again and get your tickets for one of the below dates! This Daydream Believer can’t wait for them to take the Last Train to Clarksville, I mean LA!
And I’m a Believer that Davy Jones will be there in spirit with them.
