I don’t know how I missed this video and want to thank my friend Joe for sharing this classic. The video’s title, Single Ladies Gone Wrong, really sums this up best. I promise this will give you a good chuckle.
It is now Friday afternoon on the east coast in the United States, and I thought I’d share this post before I sign off for the day. I hope this makes you smile and gives you a good chuckle.
A few weeks ago Late Night talk show host, Jimmy Fallon, broadcast a video with his band, The Roots, and Mariah Carey singing All I Want for Christmas. Check out Alex in the UK (possibly Mariah Carey’s biggest fan) watching the performance for the first time.
If Fallon’s video made you laugh check out Alex watching the song from start to finish here. Its hilarious.
Probably the best mash up I’ve seen for pop music from 2012. Was this a good year for you? Hearing these songs will probably make you smile and remember some of those happy memories. Enjoy the mash up.

It’s Monday morning and I’m in need of a smile, but none are to be found so I thought I’d add this song from the Happy Mondays to get me going.
Hallelujah – 1989
Catchy or Annoying – What do you think?
Move over Carly Rae Jepsen, your catchy pop tune from the summer Call Me Maybe has been supplanted by an equally catchy, although unlikely pop song from Korea. This unintelligible song by PSY has climbed to the top of the charts in the USA, and the rather odd dance moves from this video are inspiring many, funny spoofs.

Idina Menzel’s tour Barefoot at the Symphony comes Boston this week when she performs at the Wang on Saturday night, September 29th.
Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to see Idina perform part of her show when she was a special guest on the Western Caribbean Sea Atlantis Cruise. Although the sets are the same, I’m inclined to think that her comments may have been a bit more raw knowing she was performing in front of an entirely gay audience. If you are going to the show in Boston we can always compare notes after.

I like the Kat Graham’s song and a catchy tune on a Friday afternoon can help time pass. Can you name the notorious designer who used this song in his risque video?

AdverBlog, Producer Joel Little created the music, musician James Hayday broke the track down and Paul Sanderson built the tech to control the music. The result is a fully functional musical instrument that can be played live, triggered virtually by a dancer.
Have you seen the music video for The V Motion Project’s song, “Can’t Help Myself”? According to
The video was shot in Auckland, New Zealand, against a warehouse. Check out the faces in the crowd – they are clearly enjoying the show.
Matthew Mitcham, 2008 Australian Olympic champion in the 10M platform, used some of his down time during the London Olympic games this week to make a cute video of him singing Single Ladies on his ukulele. Could Matthew be any more adorable or likeable? I don’t think so.
