There is no more horrific feeling than waking up with a massive hangover. Except maybe being woken up outside after sleeping on the steps of a public monument a group of Norwegian men in suits circled around you singing at the top of their lungs.
That’s what happened to this young man, and he looked very confused as he slowly realized what was happening. Actually, he looked like he was going to lose his lunch (or more likely his midnight drunk snack). Still, watching him take in the scene is pretty hilarious. Let’s just hope if he did get sick, he aimed away from the lederhosen.
It may not feature a silly horsey dance, but PSY’s new single “Gentleman” will have fans imitating his new move: pelvis thrusting.
With the beat sounding a bit like “Gangnam Style”, the South Korean superstar’s new song doesn’t take itself seriously. As the video shows a very ironic turn of events, it shows PSY performing some “un-gentlemanly” tasks like speeding up a woman’s treadmill and causing a ruckus everywhere he goes.
This song is slowly creeping up on me. I think with a couple more listens in, I’ll be obsessed.
What do you think?
P.S . Be sure to check out appearances by the yellow-outfitted guy from the “Gangnam Style” video!
What happens when you fuse two of my favourite British groups of people together?
A classic sing-along of ’What Makes You Beautiful’, that’s what!
Personally, I’d never thought I’d see these two completely different things put together but I’d like to thank the genius who created this video. While I’m sure the charming boys of 1D would have no problem sweeping the daughters of Lord Grantham off their feet (especially Edith, she deserves happiness!!!), I don’t know if Countess Violet Grantham would approve. She’s a conservative type, and she would definitely be appalled by the boys’ hair!
And P.S.: “The way that you do your hair gets me…flabbergasted.”
While it wasn’t “Gone” or “This I Promise You”, ‘N Sync’s JC Chasez surprised a group of sorority girls in a surprise appearance during a University of Southern California Tridelta formal dinner.
Singing a rendition of The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey”, Chasez definitely makes the song his own, and I can’t believe I’m saying this…it’s actually quite good.
While Justin Timberlake is finalizing his next album The 20/20 Experience, it’s random times like these that I miss ‘N Sync. Can they have a reunion already? Just for one performance, pretty please?

If you were just as confused as I was when you heard about Manti Te’o's hoax girlfriend, then this song by the Gregory Brothers will certainly help clear a few things up.
Mashing up a recent interview with journalist Katie Couric, this video features the Notre Dame football player and his family breaking it down for audiences through song. Who knew Manti had such a wonderfully smooth Samoan baritone voice? And who knew his father had such hardcore rapping skills? He needs a record deal immediately.
It has only been a couple days since Haylor reportedly broke up, but one singer has already made light of the split with a new “unreleased breakup song” called “I’m Alright.” Of course, it’s not actually Taylor Swift but it sure sounds like her. In the song she sings about calling it quites with Harry Styles:
“Those green eyes/ And that contagious smile/ and those lips and the way they verbalize/ You looked at me and smiled/ Everything was perfect/ Everything was great/ I was on a fairytale/ It’s a dream while I’m awake.”
She goes into spending time with him in New York City and revelling in his smile as he sang to screaming girls on stage. The actual singer is15-year-old Jersey Green and you can find her on SoundCloud.

With only eight contenders left in the competition, it is only appropriate that this week’s theme is “songs that hit number one on the music charts.” The X-Factor also gave audiences a special treat by premiering the new music video for Will.I.Am and Britney Spears’ new song “Scream and Shout,” which had Britney Spears speaking in a British accent for some reason. Everyone stepped it up this week, even CeCe Frey (above) with her version of “Lady Marmalade.”
Here are the top three performances you definitely need to see:
Carly Rose Sonenclar – “Rolling In The Deep” by Adele
How adorable was her oversized fedora? I felt the hat really matched the old-school, bluesy sound of her unique version. Fashion aside, Carly Rose champed the tempo of this usually fast-paced and melodic song and slowed it down for us in the beginning. While I don’t think she sang the song as powerfully as she has been singing in recent weeks, she still kept her fierce stage persona and made the song her own. LA agreed with me: “I didn’t think it was your very best,” he said. “But even your second best is better than everyone’s first best.” Simon joked and said while she can definitely sell records, she’s not human and may have to be disqualified because aliens are not allowed to enter the competition.
Paige Thomas – “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley
As the weeks have gone by, her mediocre performances made me give up on Paige, and I felt her passing every week was a fluke. But this performance showed that she really has potential. While most people think “Rick Rolled!” when they hear “Never Gonna Give You Up,” I don’t think that thought stuck in anyone’s mind as she turned the song into a haunting and slow rendition that was so melodic I could totally see it on someone’s heartbreak playlist. She also seemed a lot more confident and sexy this week as she swayed her hips and moved across the stage (Love it!). Even LA Reid, who has been harsh on her the past few weeks, tweeted: “Finally, @PaigeAva just turned a page in this competition”
Tate Stevens – “Somebody to Love” by Keith Urban Read more…
Melbourne Metro Trains experienced an unexpected hit with Tangerine Kitty’s PSA “Dumb Ways To Die,” and now the song has a real life edition. The compilation combines a YouTube fail video for every dumb way to die — setting fire to your hair, eating expired medicine and teaching yourself to fly.
It’s unbelievable how many videos there are online for such specific fails as using your clothes dryer as a hiding place or your genitals as piranha bait.
The campaign was created to discourage Australian passengers from doing erratic things around trains, such as ignoring signals. It has received 19 million hits since Nov. 14. What’s the dumbest risk you’ve taken?

The countdown for The Weeknd’s next album Trilogy is still going strong, with only five days left until it’s released. Although the album will feature mostly old stuff (and by stuff I mean beautiful, lyrical genius type of deals), the singer is also adding three new tracks to the mix. The Weeknd (born Abel Tesfaye) made an appearance on BBC Radio 1 to debut one of these news songs, “Twenty Eight.” It literally sounds like heartbreak and magic all wrapped into one mp3 file. But what else can we expect from the master of heart wrenching lyrics?
In “Twenty Eight,” the singer’s soothing voice is accompanied by the constant beat of a piano. Usually a heart breaker himself, The Weeknd seems to reverse roles in this song. The singer opens the song with the words, “this is house is not a home to you/but you decide to go ahead and lay down, lay down.” Hmm, to me that sounds like a lover taking some serious advantage of The Weeknd and all that he has to offer. Poor guy. At least his heartbreak results in some awesome music. (Sad but true).
Listen to a snippet of “Twenty Eight” here:
The boys of One Direction may already have adoring fans around the world. But let’s remember that they wouldn’t be here without their parents.
So rather than letting the boys take most of the credit, a duo who goes by the name Big Clown Little Clown have released a song dedicated to the mums of One Direction. And due to its popularity, the two are even releasing it to the public to help raise money for a charity that benefits sick children.
Having listened to the song, Harry Styles’ mom Anne Cox is already a fan.
“I first heard the song when Luke & Dave sent it to me a while back, I love it!” she said. “The guys have a brilliant sense of fun, and it’s very tongue-in-cheek.”
“I know myself how hard it is to raise funds for a charity and the help that this will bring to Believe In Magic is wonderful. It’s hard to ask people to ‘give give give’ all the time, so this gives people a chance to help whilst getting something back,” continued Cox. “It’s fantastic and I’d personally like to thank the guys on behalf of BIM.”
How cute!! Now how about some love for the 1D dads??
Yes, the headline of this article may look deceiving but I assure you that it’s real.
While auditioning for Thailand’s Got Talent, this woman shocks crowds for not singing amazingly as a woman…and also as a man.
That being said, my mind is blown. You should try closing your eyes to listen to this song. It could very well be a duet!!
I thought we were done with these mashups? Psy’s “Gangnam Style” has become one of THOSE songs. You know, one of those songs that must not be named and that plays on the same playlist as “Call Me Maybe” and “Macarena.” The type of song that comes on and 80-year-olds are like “What is that diddy?” while the hip young-ins sit down and roll their eyes.
The only redeeming factor is that the mashup is with the theme for Ghostbusters. So yes, I’ll listen to it. It’s actually the perfect tune for Halloween.
Okay, so the song definitely isn’t even anywhere near the same vicinity as Kelly Clarkson’s past hits (Miss Independent, anyone?), but “Catch my Breath” is damn likeable. The American Idol winner pretty much nails it with this song, because she perfectly captures where she is right now in her career. The single, which is supporting her upcoming Greatest Hits — Chapter 1 album, explains how Clarkson sometimes needs to take a chill pill and realize how far she’s come. I think that Clarkson totally deserves to give herself a pat on the back (or several) for all of the awesome work she’s done in the past. Let’s take a look at the singer’s career so far, shall we?
Five awesome moments in Kelly Clarkson’s career:
Who can forget this instant blockbuster hit, “From Justin to Kelly?” The film captures the awesome rapport between Clarkson and fellow American Idol contestant/dreamboat, Justin Guarini.
Remember the song, “Because of You?” If you don’t, I question your dedication to heartbreaking songs 101.
First winner of American Idol!
I wonder if Kelly knew that she’d be the first winner of the show that would become a cultural phenomenon.
The group recently posted their cover of “Titanium” by David Guetta ft. Sia. Their rendition is moody and mysterious, blending beautifully with their outdoor setting.
The video was filmed in Bryce Canyon National Park, however the guys considered copper mines, steel mills, and industry factories before that. We’re glad that ThePianoGuys went with the national park for this epic and visually stimulating video.

About discovering love in an unexpected place, the song features bouncy synths and a quick tempo. This song was also produced by Steve Mac, who also worked on ‘Glad You Came.’
What do you think of the new tune? While it sounds a lot like their first single, my prediction says they’ll do well with this new single. Because really, who doesn’t like a catchy tune to dance along to?
There you go again X-Factor, making me look like a crazy person sitting in an office full of guys, trying to block the tears welling up in my eyes. Contestant Bella Ferraro auditioned for Australia’s The X-Factor with an emotional performance of “Skinny Love” by Birdy, originally by Bon Iver.
Bella left high school to pursue music. She nervously auditioned for the judges on her eighteenth birthday.
There are several reasons why her performance is so touching. First, she doesn’t realize how damn talented she is. Hands shaking at times, Ferraro seemed genuinely shocked when the audience applauded her within five seconds of starting. Her supportive mom looked on from the audience, tearfully proud. All the judges, including hard-to-please Mel B, gave the contestant a deserved standing ovation.
Yesterday the UK edition of The X-Factor made me angry when I saw Pink cover artist Zoe Alexander storm off the stage upon receiving constructive criticism. But you’ve reclaimed my love, X-Factor, with Bella Ferraro.

Uh…I’m feeling hot and bothered now.
Proving the world that he can sing just about anything and make it sound original, Ed Sheeran does it again with another amazing cover.
While Ed’s style is usually along the lines of acoustic, folk, alternative and pop, he is also a huge Hip-Hop and R&B fan. So while he was in New York City promoting his debut album ‘+’, he did an impromptu cover of Ginuwine’s sexy tune “Pony” while rehearsing for his sold-out gig.
If that was just an random performance, I am SERIOUSLY IMPRESSED.
And can I just mention how he just picks up his phone and gets up the second he was done?
Oh you know. It’s not like he just made everyone swoon over his voice.
A bit of an oldie, but you wouldn’t expect this all-girls prep school choir do a killer cover of Dr. Dre’s “Bitches Ain’t Shit.”
Looking dressed and just about ready to go play some tennis at the country club, it’s hard to believe how these girls look so calm and collected while busting out a pretty dope-ass cover.
If there was one element the song was missing it was most definitely a little more
cowbell bark. It also proves a hypothetical theory I have that the song is not only universally loved by humans around the world, but also by other species. [Source]
