PoP TV

Time to get a little heavier on PoP TV.

Parkway Drive – Sleepwalker (off new album, Deep Blue)

Slash – By the Sword (off the eponymous solo album)

Avenged Sevenfold – Nightmare (off upcoming Nightmare album)

PoP TV – LADY GAGA

Gaudy costumes, stark images and “controversial” content. Yes, boys and girls, its the new Lady Gaga video of her single, Alejandro. The song itself is pop fluff, of the Scandinavian ilk. No wonder they also gave us Black Metal. Nuff said.

EMINEM Not Afraid (off upcoming new album, Recovery)

The bad boy of Rap (now that’s an oxymoron, kids) is back with a new album, Recovery, and a new single, Not Afraid, which suggests that Eminem is going all touchy-feely on us, with kubaya-like lyrics and a video that has him flying around like a super-hero! The album should be a doozy (out, 21 June).

1960

What was the music scene like in 1960? Well, it seemed that rock ‘n’ roll had come and gone and the popular songs were ballads. Here are some of the hits from half a century ago.

Elvis Presley – Are You Lonesome Tonight

Roy Orbison – Only the Lonely

The Miracles – Shop Around

The Shadows – Apache

Will any song from 2010 still be remembered in 2060?

I have been getting quite a few music video links in the last couple of weeks and I would like to share the ones I liked with you.

Katia – Girl Like Me

Cute song, cute girl! Video reminds me of McCartney’s Coming Up. From Katia’s new EP, available from iTunes.

008 JT and the Clouds from Kyle Obriot on Vimeo.

Old school soul pop coolness from Chicago-based JT and the Clouds with Low July off their new album, Caldonia. More info here.

Here We Go Magic – Collector (off new album, Pigeon)

Loads of cuteness abounds as hyperkinetic music clashes with motionless band members. Heh! More info here.

Rebroadcast of Free Energy’s gig on the Roof in NYC. Nuff said!

Marianne Keith – Meant To Be An Angel (off new album, Carthatic)

Country-folk pop sweetness. Does not hurt that Keith sings a bit like Chrissie Hynde…More info here.

…still there’s more…
