Christine Aguilera

 Christine Aguilera

Not Myself Tonight 

I'm dancing alot and I'm taking shots I'm feeling fine
I'm kissing all the boys and the girls
Someone call the doctor cause I lost my mind

Five-time Grammy winner Christina Aguilera is set to release her latest album, Bionic, on June 8.Aguilera has also recently completed production on her first film, Burlesque, co-starring Cher, Stanley Tucci, and Kristen Bell, and due out in fall 2010.
Bionic will be Aguilera's first studio album since 2006's Back to Basics, which went platinum in more than a dozen countries, earned a Grammy Award for Best Pop Female Vocal Performance, and was named iTunes' Best Pop Album of the Year.

By age six, she began performing regularly in local talent shows, working her way to an appearance on the nationally televised competition Star Search. This was the true beginning of Aguilera’s professional career, leading her to joining Disney Channel’s reboot of The Mickey Mouse Club in 1992. Christina joined a cast that also featured future stars Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake.

  California Girls 

Lyrics I Kissed A Girl
Us girls we are so magical
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist so touchable
Too good to deny it
Ain't no big deal, it's innocent

Born on October 25, 1984 in a strict Christian family, Perry was later known for her song "Ur So Gay".Her parents were pastors and there was always gospel music in the family. In an interview Perry said that her mother used to ban her from listening to what they call "secular music" .
    Thus, young Perry was apt in gospel music until one day during a slumber party she heard the voice of Freddie Mercury. Inspired by the Queen frontman's style of singing she was metaphorically 'opened' to another possible side of music, although it was not until much later that this side of her will come out as her main music style.

Trivia Song of the Week

Leonard Cohen

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

This song was the debut single for Alexandra Burke, the 2008 winner of the UK X Factor show. Her version broke the record for Europe's fastest selling download and topped the UK chart. Its success prompted renewed interest in Jeff Buckley's rendition and as a consequence his version of Leonard Cohen's spiritual epic reached #2 just behind Alexandra Burke.

   It also prompted renewed interest in Leonard Cohen's original version. As a result the Canadian singer-songwriter got a look in on some chart action, gaining his very first UK Top 40 hit at the age of 74.
  Something that I wanted too say is how can you even go close to selecting Sheryl Crows version of Tomorrow Never Dies over K.D.Lang for the bond movie they must have rocks in their heads.
  Just listen too Crows version of Hallejulah, Lang makes her sound like an amateur. Sorry if it may sound harsh but it's the truth.

Eminem New Music

sing with me, sing for the years
sing for the laughter, sing for the tears,
Sing it with me, just for today, maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away...

Eminem will join a very elite club tomorrow when the new Billboard Hot 100 singles chart is unveiled.
The hip-hop king's new single, "Not Afraid," will be just the 16th to debut at No. 1 on the nearly 52-year old chart.
Released digitally last Monday (May 3) just four days after its radio premiere, "Not Afraid" has had 380 000 digital downloads.

 Black Sabbath

Revolution in their minds - the children start to march
Against the world they have to live in
Oh! the hate that's in their hearts
They're tired of being pushed around
and told just what to do
They'll fight the world until they've won
and love comes flowing through

Ronnie James Dio, solo artist and former vocalist for Black Sabbath, died yesterday following a battle with stomach cancer at the age of 67.

Black Sabbath formed in Birmingham, England in 1966 under the name Polka Tulk Blues Band , and later Earth. Initially a blues-rock band, Earth moved in a darker direction when Geezer Butler, a fan of the black magic novels of Dennis Wheatley, wrote an occult-themed song titled "Black Sabbath" (the song name was apparently inspired by a 1963 Boris Karloff film). When the band found themselves being confused with another local band called Earth, they adopted the song title as their new name. 

Lady Antebellum

You wear your smile like a summer sky
Just shining down on me and you
I swear your heart is a free bird
On a lazy Sunday afternoon

 As predicted, Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" seems set to return to No. 1 on next week's Billboard 200 albums chart, thus earning its fifth non-consecutive week at the top of the tally.

   Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" hits No. 1 next week with less than 60,000, it will mark the lowest-ever sales week at the top of the Billboard 200 since Nielsen SoundScan began powering the chart with its sales data in May of 1991.

  Music Trivia

    Mellow Yellow

"Electrical banana" is referring to a vibrator that was sent through the mail. Donovan originally wrote this as a singalong at parties.
   The 45 version had the lyrics "I'm just mad about 14-year old girls and their just mad about me" as the lyrics. Most stations stopped playing it and the 45 was re-released with "I'm just mad about 14 and she's just mad about me". This little fact has been swept under the rug over the years.

 Stevie Nicks

Nicks started writing this after reading the book Triad by Mary Leader. It is about a woman who believes she is being possessed by the spirit of a woman named Rhiannon. There are themes of mythology and the occult that Nicks used in her song along with the name.
  Rhiannon is the name of a Welsh goddess. According to myth, Rhiannon shuns a God and marries a mortal man. That God then frames her for the murder of her own son, and she is forced to stand at the entrance to a city and tell everyone entering that she killed her child.

 Yorke says this is about being in love with someone, but not feeling good enough. He describes the feeling as, "There's the beautiful people and then there's the rest of us."
Yorke based this on a song called "The Air That I breathe," which was written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood in 1972. After "Creep" was released, Radiohead agreed to share the songwriting royalties, so this is credited to Yorke, Hammond and Hazlewood.

Ga Ga Music News

Living on the edge, out of control,
and the world just wont let me slow down,
But in my biggest picture, was a photo of you and me.
Girl you know I tried, I work hard to provide all that material things
that I thought would make you happy.

                Usher has become only the 3rd artist to have a number 1 song on the Hot 100 in 3 consecutive decades, when his latest track, “OMG,” ft. Will.I.Am hit number 1. The only other two artists who have done that were Madonna and Janet Jackson, so Usher is in the company of legends.  His first number one was “Nice and Slow,” in 1998, 8 number ones in the 200s, and “OMG,” in 2010. Congratulations to Usher.

    Today was a Fairytale

    You pull me in and I'm a little more brave
    It's the first kiss,
    It's flawless,
    Really something,
    It's fearless.

       Fearless is the only album in history to win the all-genre Album of The Year GRAMMY, plus Country Album of the Year Awards from the GRAMMYs, the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music and the American Music Awards.

To date she has sold more than thirteen million albums and is the top-selling digital artist in music history. Her second album, Fearless, has spent more weeks in the top spot on Billboard’s all-genre Top 20 chart than any other album this decade. The GRAMMY Awards, the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, and the American Music Awards all named Fearless the 2009 Country Album of the Year and, this year, the album won the all-genre GRAMMY Award for Album of the year. Last year, Swift earned the American Music Award for Artist of the Year and was the youngest artist ever to win the prestigious CMA Award for Entertainer of the Year.

         MILEY CYRUS

        There's always gonna be another mountain
        I'm always gonna wanna make it move
        Always gonna be a uphill battle
        Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

        Ain't about how fast I get there
        Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
        It's the climb
         Miley Cyrus hot new video for her killer new single 'Can't Be Tamed'!
          This single is the first off Miley's forthcoming album (also called 'Can't Be Tamed') which is due to be released worldwide on June 25 and will no doubt introduce us to a new, more grown up side to Miley, who will celebrate her 18th birthday this November.

          The 'Can't Be Tamed' video features Miley in plenty of sexy (and er... birdlike) outfits and dark smoky eye makeup flapping her animated wings and getting into some choreographed dance moves!
