“Silver Springs” — Lykke Li
Lykke Li’s recent cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Springs” puts a new spin on the emotional classic. While Lykke Li may not have as strong a personal connection to the song as Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, she manages to give the song new life with her expressive vocals pounding with reverb and a slow buildup to that heart wrenching chorus. Move over Adele, I think I just found my new breakup song. You can catch Li’s version of “Silver Springs” on the upcoming Fleetwood Mac cover album Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute To Fleetwood Mac, released August 14.
“Mean Girls” — Rachel Crow
Finally, an up and coming pop star who doesn’t rely on sex and partying to sell her first single. Fourteen-year-old ex X-Factor contestant Rachel Crow is a breathe of fresh air in the bullying themed music video for “Mean Girls,” off her debut self-titled EP. The video features candid shots of young girls who have been victims of bullying, and Crow gives a heartfelt performance urging her audience to stay strong and never give up. The girl is extremely talented and seems to have a good head on her shoulders. Hopefully future pop stars will learn something from Crow.

And yes, that could be potentially dangerous, but only if you haven’t created the appropriate safety protocols.
To enjoy yourself during the zombie apocalypse, you must first heed the messages of people who have pondered the notion of the non-living much longer than we ever have. I’m talking, of course, about the film and T.V. writers who have played out zombie-themed scenarios countless times, and have incidentally uncovered survival strategies that work.
Here’s what Hollywood has to teach us:
1) Create a plan
Once you get past the initial shock and panic brought on by the thought that everyone you love is probably dead, you’ll be ready to have fun in your new zombie playground. Take a moment to sit and jot down a couple basic rules to help prevent any zombie from getting the jump on you. Caution is the key here. If you’re not careful your game could come to an end, and you don’t get any extra lives.
