Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably well aware of what is undoubtedly the song of the summer: link

It’s got catchy lyrics, a great vibe and the video offers a nod to a 1970’s James Bond mood.

I recently caught up with model and actress SAYO, who stars in the video, to find out more about the experience.


Tell us about your appearance in Saint Motel’s popular video MY TYPE.

SAYO: My agent told me about this project. When I heard it was for a music video, I was hesitant. I’ve appeared in music videos in the past and it’s not something I do anymore at this stage in...

Who has the most beautiful golden voice?
Who has the most beautiful golden voice?
This was a really hard list to figure out and it took a LONG time to finally come together. There are just so many amazing voices that it was hard to figure it out. Most of the singers here are female because for some reason they appeal more to me than male singers do. Anyway, please comment because I've worked really hard one this and will be mad as hell if I don't get a good amount of comments after all this time I spent on this article. However, please be polite and realize that it's just my opinion. I will provide links to all of the singers singing, for those of you who haven't heard a...

Just a small town girl
Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train
Goin' anywhere
Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train
Goin' anywhere

A singer in a smokey room
The smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching
In the night
Streetlight people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin' somewhere in the night

Workin' hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win
Some will lose
Some were born to...

I thought that I'd been hurt before
But no one's ever left me quite this sore
Your words cut deeper than a knife
Now I need someone to breathe me back to life

Got a feeling that I'm going under
But I know that I'll make it out alive
If I quit calling you my lover
Move on

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
Shaking, falling onto my knees
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
Tripping over myself
Aching, begging you to come help
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

Just like a moth drawn to a flame
Oh, you lured me in, I couldn't sense the pain
Your bitter...

Uooh Oohh celebration

All this talk about being in love
I could never get into the party
Never really understood what it was
Like what's the big deal anyway?

Oh, but I decided I should give it a try
The very moment that you gave me the invite
I've never seen anything like it before
Once you open the door
See I was like...

Oh yeah yeah don't get any better
Oh yeah yeah wish that this was forever
Your heart calling
Feels like confetti falling
And it's a celebration,
Feels like a celebration
Cause your heart calling
Feels like confetti falling down, down, down.

And everybody's gonna make an appearance
Even the butterflies...

As a sequel to my previous article about my top 100 best singing voices of all time, this time I'll be talking about my top 20 WORST singing voices of all time. Why only 20? Because why would I want to torture myself with having to listen to 100 horrible singers? These singers are absolutely HORRID and can't sing to save their lives. I will be providing links to them singing, if you're brave enough to listen to them. Please keep in mind that this is all just my opinion, so don't be rude. Enjoy!

This guy is absolutely HORRIBLE! First of all, his lack of teeth from all the drugs he does...

On the music reviewing/ cataloguing site rateyourmusic.com, a reviewer of Taylor Swift's first album commented that it was "Almost like a country girl version of the early Beatles." When I first saw that review, it made me angry- how dare they disrespect a legend like The Beatles by comparing them to someone like Taylor Swift. I like both but The Beatles are one of my favourite artists whereas Taylor Swift is more of a guilty pleasure for me- but at the time I read this she wasn't even that. When I first read that review, it was before Lover but after reputation, which probably partly explains...

...And one you should give a second chance.

I've been known to have music tastes that aren't for everyone. People tend to be a little crazy about what music they do and don't like but if it makes you feel good who really cares, right? I was up last night watching music videos for one of the artists on here and I was thinking to myself "Why aren't they more popular? Why does nobody I know talk about them?" Then I answered my own question and decided to inform the masses! So lets get started!


Lets start with the one you should give a second chance...Carly Rae Jepsen. Of course you know her, whether...

Backsmacking, for those who don't know is when you take a song and put it in reverse. Some artists of course decide to put reversed lyrics in their own songs. I always found those to be interesting and so I decided to make a list of these songs. In the parenthesis are the lyrics. And yes, I did have to reverse some of these myself lmao so some of the lyrics may not be exactly correct (and some I couldn't understand at all). I'll probably add more as I find them.

- Utada Hikaru's Sanctuary (I Need More Affection Than You Know)

- Crystal Castles' Femen (They literally took Scala & Kolacny Brothers'...

Now, Arab sheikhs on the burning sands,
Come into their harems and clap their hands,
Said, "Come on, girls, are you ready to play?
Let's have a little more of that swingin' today."
Now, in the land of Fu Manchu,
The girls all now do the Suzie-Q,
Clap their hands in the center of the floor,
Saying, "Ching, ching, chop-suey, swing some more!"

Now, geisha girls in old Japan,
Wink behind their peacock fans,
Since they learned to say, "Yeah!
Let's swing it like Amelican's swing swing dance!"

Now, Gypsy caravans have changed their mode,
They truck down the Romany road,
With their hi-de-hos, and their hey-hey-diddle,...

"Work"
(feat. Drake)

[Chorus - Rihanna:]
Work, work, work, work, work, work
He said me haffi
Work, work, work, work, work, work!
He see me do me
Dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt!
So me put in
Work, work, work, work, work, work
When you ah gon'
Learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Meh nuh care if him
Hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurting

[Verse 1 - Rihanna:]
Dry!... Me a desert him
No time to have you lurking
Him ah go act like he don't like it
You know I dealt with you the nicest
Nobody touch me you nuh righteous
Nobody text me in a crisis
I believed all of your dreams, adoration
You took my heart and my keys and my patience...

Whilst typing my top 25 songs article (which as of 1/20/2015 is not done yet) I decided I wanted to do a more in depth interpretation of a few of the songs on the list. (One of which being Our Farewell). The lyrics well be in italics and the interpretations left in standard text. I do hope to continue these, that said I think some songs will have more clear messages than others--some songs will be more heavy on personal interpretation as opposed to being so clear cut.

Overall I think this song is about the passing of a loved one. So if you are not comfy with discussions of death/suicide I wouldn't...

Before He Cheats lyrics
By Carrie Underwood

Right now he's probably slow dancing with a bleach blond tramp,
and she's probably getting frisky...
right now, he's probably buying her some fruity little drink cause she can't shoot whiskey...
Right now, he's probably up behind her with a pool-stick, showing her how to shoot a combo...
And he don't know...

That I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seats...
I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...
Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.

Right now,...

Uh huh, uh huh (yeah, Rihanna)
Uh huh, uh huh (Good Girl Gone Bad)
Uh huh, uh huh (take three, action)
Uh huh, uh huh (Hov)

No clouds in my stones
Let it rain, I hydroplane in the bank
Comin' down like Dow Jones
When the clouds come, we gone
We Roc-A-Fella
We fly higher than weather
In G5's or better
You know me (you know me)
In anticipation for precipitation stack chips for the rainy day
Jay, Rain Man is back
With Little Ms. Sunshine, Rihanna, where you at?

You have my heart
And we'll never be worlds apart
Maybe in magazines
But you'll still be my star
Baby, 'cause in the dark
You can't see shiny cars
And that's...

I've been collecting (kay at this point its more like hoarding) CD's for a long time now and so I wanted to try my hand at doing some album reviews. Basically I'll be rating the cover art and each song on the album. Naturally I'm going to start with my all time favorite album. So without further delay, here's a review of the Mother Earth album.

The artwork for this album is what drew me in. At the time I had purchased this album, I was having trouble deciding which Within Temptation album I wanted more; Mother Earth or Heart Of Everything. In the end I went with this one Mother Earth because...

This was the last one I typed, a while back. Here are some more wonderful underground bands, in no particular order. link


Blvck Ceiling

Genre: Witch House

Blvck Ceiling is an American band formed in 2011 by a man named Daniel Cuccia (aka Dan Ocean). The band has a variety of variations to it's name that includes BL▲CK † CEILING, BL4CK C3ILING, Black Ceiling, and even Blvckceiling. There isn't too much other information out there on the one-man band, because it is so underground and Dan himself admits that he likes being able to produce music with a sense of anonymity. Like a lot of Witch House...

Here's part two of the last article.

The Lovecrave



Genre: Gothic Metal & Alternative Rock

The Lovecrave is an Italian band formed in 2004. Francesca Chiara, the lead vocalist had actually created a computer generated alter-ego for herself that she named Rain—the cool thing about this is that her entire album (The Angel and The Rain) comes with this booklet that is basically the story of this character, and this story is actually built around the songs! Super cool and unique to Lovecrave. As for the band’s overall style they mix the whole Goth and rock thing with some electro and...

MAY 31ST
On MAY 31st 2008 hundreds of MCR fans stood up for the band, The Sun Times a British tabloid had falsely printed that their music made someone commit suicide. On MAY 31s these fans joined together in protest of their bands' persecution. Friends, our band is persecuted no more but I think it's time we paid them all a proper tribute.
In the video Kids from Yesterday they thank us but I think they have it backwards. It is us who need to thank them. On MAY 31st 2012 we will let them know how much we care! Gerard and the rest of the band have said some amazing life-supporting...
