VIDEO: HELPING HAITI – ‘EVERYBODY HURTS’

February 2, 2010 Leave a comment

Music mogul Simon Cowell rounded up a bunch of caring singing superstars, who then went on to re-record the 1992 R.E.M hit ‘Everybody Hurts’ for charity.

This single will help to raise money for Haiti’s earthquake survivors.

It will also bring on the sudden urge to overdose on antidepressants…

UK MUSIC: DADDY’S GIRLS – FRIDAY NIGHT

February 2, 2010 7 comments

Check the debut single ‘ Friday Night’ from new female Hip Hop trio Daddy’s Girls.

‘Friday Night’ isn’t really my cup of tea but I can see it being a hit with young girls (12-16 year old demographic).

Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

VIDEO: JEDWARD FT VANILLA ICE – UNDER PRESSURE / ICE ICE BABY

February 2, 2010 4 comments

John and Edward need to stop!

And why Vanilla Ice agreed to this collaboration I will never know.

From what I hear unlike MC Hammer, Vanilla here invested the millions he made back in the early 90s wisely so he doesn’t need the money. 

Anyway in a recent interview with Heat Magazine the duo said,  

Vanilla’s so cool. I know we say cool a lot, but he’s really cool for a rapper guy. Even our grandad knows who Vanilla Ice is.

“We’re trying to get the whole gangsta feeling – a P Diddy element.”

There aren’t enough words……

Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
