A realllllly old TIOJ post to remind you that Bieber’s “Never Say Never” is on Netflix!

The best Mean Girls quotes, just because the other day was October 3.

So ready for all the SNL political spoofs coming this season!

{THROWBACK} "suga suga"

Songs that are half cover/half modern pop song are, in a word, my jam. Enter: up-and-comer Francesco Yates (called it) and Robin Schulz whose take on the R&B classic "Suga Suga" is the stuff of weekend dance party dreams. I dare you not to copy the dance moves in the music video for "Sugar":

And if you're anything like me, this has you craving the Baby Bash original. Take a listen and reminisce about listening to this as you put on glitter eyeshadow before the Freshman year homecoming dance (just me?).

new music roundup!

This week has been such a good week. The air is crisp yet not too cold, pope-a-palooza chaos has died down, and new music has come flooding in! Here are some of our fave new releases this week. 

"Weak" - Wet
Goddammit. We didn't think songs could get much better than Wet's "Deadwater" but they've done it again with their latest single "Weak." For a pleading song about a crumbling relationship, it's a gorgeous track.

"The Love Within" - Bloc Party
You know those friends you don't see for years and then when you finally do, you realize how much you love them? Well, that's Bloc Party for us. So happy to have them back in our lives.

"Runnin' (Lost It All)" - Naughty Boy feat. Beyoncé
Because what kind of friends would we be to not share awesome new tracks featuring Queen Bey?

"A Brand New Life" - Panama Wedding
Much like Bloc Party, we forgot how happy this bands' infectious pop makes us and they've come back onto our music queues just in time. (With an upcoming show in DC to boot!)

What other new jams have you been digging?

the saint johns are my jam

I need to get myself to Nashville ASAP. Every time I find a new band from Music City, I kick myself a little because I still have never been. The Saint Johns moved Nashville up a notch or two on my must go list -- I keep playing "Shadowplay" over and over and over again, especially because I feel like it should be featured on Nashville.
