Ariana Grande Shares Mac Miller Song Featuring the Lyrics ‘We Gotta Find a Way’

Ariana Grande is continuing to remember her ex Mac Miller.

On Saturday, one day after the 25-year-old singer penned an emotional tribute to the late rapper, she shared on her Instagram Story that she was listening to “Ladders,” one of the tracks from his most recent album, Swimming.

On the personal track, Miller raps about how no matter what surprises life has in store for you — be they good or bad — “somehow we gotta find a way/no matter how many miles it takes.”

Above the album artwork, which shows Miller sitting on the ground in a pink suit, Grande added rain cloud, heart and various bird GIFs.

Minutes later, the singer also shared that she was listening to another track from the album, “Dunno,” which many fans have speculated to be about Grande.

Perhaps referencing a line from the chorus — “let’s get lost inside the clouds” — Grande posted the photo alongside multiple moving cloud GIFs.

During an interview with Vulture, which was published just one day before Miller’s death, he opened up about how perseverance is an underlying message in his music.

“You’re in your head and at some point you have to decide to either f— move forward and go or just stay in this space. At some point there has to be the decision to get on with it,” he remarked. “That’s probably a reflection of how my mind works maybe. At some point I’m just like, ‘Shut the f— up and go.’ There is always that moment of release and I always want that.”

On Friday, the “No Tears Left to Cry” singer — who is engaged to Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, 24 — opened up about how much her ex-boyfriend meant to her.

“I adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a throwback black-and-white video of the pair laughing together.

“I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore,” she added in the emotional post. “I really can’t wrap my head around it. We talked about this. so many times. i’m so mad, i’m so sad i don’t know what to do.”

Continuing, she wrote, “you were my dearest friend. for so long. above anything else. i’m so sorry i couldn’t fix or take your pain away. i really wanted to. the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. i hope you’re okay now. Rest.”

Grande also went on to post a photograph of a dreary grey sky on her Instagram Story.

Whitney Port Sings Along to The Hills Theme Song — Without Missing a Word!

Whitney Port can still feel the rain on her skin!

Even though it’s been eight years since the series finale of The Hills, Port, 33, still knows all the words to the reality show’s theme song.

On Friday, while taking a drive with her 11-month-old son, Sonny SanfordThe Hills alum shared a video on her Instagram Story of herself singing along while Natasha Bedingfield’s 2004 song “Unwritten” played in the background.

After belting out the chorus behind the wheel, she addressed her son, who was not visible in the video.

“Sonny, this is mama’s song,” she cheerfully told her son.

Earlier this year, Port opened up to PEOPLE about how she and husband Tim Rosenman are adjusting to life as parents — including one of her biggest (and wettest) parenting fails.

Is Harry Styles Addressing His Sexuality in New Song ‘Medicine?’ Twitter Thinks So

Harry Styles surprised fans with two new songs recently, and has sent listeners straight to Twitter with questions about his sexuality.

The singer and former One Direction member, 24, performed in Paris on Tuesday night at the AccorHotels Arena as part of his current European solo tour when he debuted the previously unreleased tracks “Anna” and “Medicine,” the latter of which caught the attention of many due to its lyrics.

“The boys and the girls are here I mess around with them / And I’m okay with it / I’m coming down/ I figured out I kinda like it / And when I sleep I’m gonna dream of how you tasted,” Styles can be heard belting out in a fan-recorded video from the concert.

Though the singer has yet to confirm the inspiration behind the song, many on social media have dubbed “Medicine” a “bisexual anthem.”

“@Harry_Styles can you verify whether or not Medicine is you coming out,” one fan tweeted.

While another follower referenced his former bandmate Zayn Malik’s split from girlfriend Gigi Hadid after two years of dating: “Ok ok yeah zayn and gigi broke up but let’s talk abt harry styles new bisexual anthem medicine.”

In addition, attendees spotted Styles’ reported flame Camille Rowe and his mother Anne in the crowd at the Paris venue.

RELATED: Proof Harry Styles Has Always Loved a Bold Suit

Styles — who was romantically linked to Taylor Swift in 2012 and Kendall Jenner in 2015 — touched upon his sexuality in May 2017, telling The Sun about how he has “never felt the need” to define his sexual orientation.

“I don’t feel like it’s something I’ve ever felt like I have to explain about myself,” he told the British outlet. “Everyone should just be who they want to be. It’s tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that.”

Later that same year, the star waved a massive pride flag during his first solo tour show in San Francisco, California, in September.

Styles previously shot down rumors that he was bisexual in a 2013 interview with British GQ.

“Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’m not,” he told the men’s glossy at the time.

In the same interview, he called rumors and speculation over his sexuality funny, ridiculous and annoying.

“I don’t want to be one of those people that complains about the rumors,” he told British GQ. “I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, ‘This isn’t true!’ It is what it is, I tend not to do that. The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you. Then it can get annoying.”

Lana Del Rey Says She’s Facing a Potential Radiohead Lawsuit Over Song Similarities

Lana Dey Rey has claimed that Radiohead may sue her over similarities between her 2017 song “Get Free” and their hit 1992 song “Creep.”

“It’s true about the lawsuit,” the 32-year-old singer wrote on social media on Sunday, responding to rumors that began circulating after British tabloid the Sun claimed that the band was considering suing Del Rey for copyright infringement.

Addressing the matter on social media, Del Rey went on to claim that her song was not inspired by the band’s hit single.

“Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing,” she wrote, adding that she had “offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100.”

“Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court,” she continued.

PEOPLE’s request for comment from Radiohead was not immediately returned.

Newscaster Sneaks Taylor Swift Song Titles into Her Traffic Report — and the Singer Loves It

This newscaster’s reputation certainly won’t suffer after getting approval from Taylor Swift herself.

Laura Hettiger, who works for St. Louis’ KMOV station and serves as co-host of Great Day St. Louis, decided to put a musical twist on her morning traffic report, Friday, in honor of the 27-year-old songstress dropping her new album.

Hettiger incorporated Swift’s song names and lyrics into the broadcast, like advising viewers that there was plenty of “Blank Space” on the roads heading downtown and to be “Fearless” as they headed out to clear highways.

Swift herself saw the report thanks to her family members in the area and made sure to alert Hettiger to her approval via social media.

“My cousins in St. Louis sent this to me,” the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer wrote on Twitter Saturday. “I LOVE YOU @LauraKHettiger.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The Grammy winner dropped her new album, Reputation, shortly before midnight on Thursday, and it appears to be everything her Swifties have been hoping for.

While many of the songs reveal intimate details about her secret relationship with boyfriend Joe Alwyn, Swift — who spent most of 2016 in hiding — also tells her side of the story on her past relationships and her feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West.

RELATED VIDEO: Taylor Swift Slams Kanye West In New Song On Her Reputation Album

She additionally wrote a heartfelt letter to fans in Reputation‘s album booklet. “Here’s something I’ve learned about people,” she wrote. “We think we know someone, but the truth is that we only know the version of them they have chosen to show us.”

She continued, “We are never just good or just bad. We are mosaics of our worst selves and our best selves, our deepest secrets and our favorite stories to tell at a dinner party, existing somewhere between our well-lit profile photo and our drivers license shot.”

“I’ve been in the public eye since I was 15-years-old. On the beautiful, lovely side of that, I’ve been so lucky to make music for a living and look out into crowds of loving, vibrant people. On the other side of the coin, my mistakes have been used against me, my heartbreaks have been used as entertainment, and my songwriting has been trivialized as ‘oversharing,’ ” added Swift.

“Let me say it louder again, louder for those in the back… We think we know someone, but the truth is that we only know the version of them they have chosen to show us,” she concluded. “There will be no further explanation. There will just be reputation.”

Bride Serenades New Wife With An Elvis Song During Their First Dance

These newlyweds are starting their marriage off on the right note.

On April 28, bride Heather Ni Chearnaigh surprised her new wife Lauren O’Sullivan during their first dance with a beautiful rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”

Halfway through the song, the rest of their guests joined in for a sing-along at the Cork, Ireland wedding.

“I have always expressed myself through music and what better way to express my love for my wife than through a song with such meaningful lyrics!” Heather, a piano teacher and wedding singer, told HuffPost in an email.

The performance was a complete surprise to the Lauren and their guests. Before the wedding, Heather had been practicing with Lauren’s Uncle Mick, who plays guitar in the video, and also arranged for printed lyrics to be handed out to their other family and friends. 

“As a wedding singer, I am used to singing in front of crowds and nerves would never be an issue, but singing to my wife, the most important person in my life, and my biggest critic, now that was nerve-wracking,” Heather told HuffPost. “Tears streamed from Lauren’s face as I started to sing. Immediately after the first dance Lauren hugged me and said, ‘You get more amazing every day.’” 

The couple first met online four and a half years ago and have been inseparable ever since. Below, more photos from the couple’s special day.

The Absolute Worst Song Ever Is More Terrible Than You Ever Imagined

Here’s yet another reason to hate the media: We’re making you listen to the worst song ever recorded.

This past weekend, a HuffPost writer found a ditty called “Fast Food Song,” which rose to No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart in 2003 for a group called the Fast Food Rockers.

Music is a subjective thing, but we’re pretty certain that no one can listen to this and not realize it’s a recording so terrible that playing it to others without warning might constitute a violation of the Geneva Convention.

The song’s chorus is annoyingly catchy ―“Pizza Hut, Pizza Hut/ Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut/ Pizza Hut, Pizza Hut/ Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut/ McDonald’s, McDonald’s/ Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut.” 

We guarantee that anyone who hears it is going to have this earworm stuck in their noggin for the next 24 hours.

Although this song was a pretty big hit in jolly old England, the Fast Food Rockers were never foisted on Americans ― yet another reason to appreciate our British allies.

The British trio (four people if you count “Hot Dog,” a non-singing person in a giant blue dog suit who joins in the video romp) freely admitted to the BBC its music was cheesy. So much so, that the follow-up single was called “Say Cheese!” 

We haven’t listened to that one yet. We don’t have the guts. If you’re more daring, here’s the link.

Please forgive us. “Fast Food Song” is the musical equivalent of the Mealbreakers gallery below.

Jewish A Cappella Group Remixes ‘La La Land’ Song Into Passover Anthem

If you love musicals and are gearing up for Passover, then look no further for your seder-prep pump up song.

Jewish a cappella group Y-Studs is celebrating “that day when the entire Jewish nation puts their bread away” with a Passover-themed cover of “Another Day of Sun,” the opening song from the 2016 musical “La La Land.”

Passover, which falls between April 10-18 this year, is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt. Over the course of the eight-day festival, many Jews partake in a seder dinner ― a ritual meal marked by an assortment of symbolic foods, songs and stories. 

For their song and accompanying video, Y-Studs focused on the preparation that goes into hosting a seder meal. Staged at a supermarket, the singers grab matzah, wine and other foods frequently found on the Passover table as they belt out the theatrical number.

“Grab a cart/there’s matzah left and right/and all the kinds of wine you like/and when the sun goes down/our families gather ‘round/a people so renowned/and it’s how Passover is done.”

Check out Y-Studs’ “La La Passover” below:

Selena Gomez Debuts Emotional New Song For ‘13 Reasons Why’

Selena Gomez is a co-producer on the new Netflix original drama series “13 Reasons Why.” While she will not be acting in the show, she will be a part of the show’s soundtrack.

On Wednesday, Gomez tweeted a teaser video which features a cover of the ‘80s hit “Only You.” 

Gomez says the song choice is inspired by the relationship between two characters on the show, Hannah and Clay. 

“13 Reasons Why” revolves around 13 tapes left behind a student who died by suicide, each targeted at a different classmate who contributed to her decision to end her life.

Comedian Releases Song To Find Her Own Rachel Maddow

Sure, Rachel Maddow has plenty of fans (and haters), but one particular fan has written a special song about her.

Comedian and musician Lane Moore tweeted a roughly two-minute ode to the host of MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” on Monday afternoon.

“Don’t care if you’re a girl or a guy; you could look a little like her,” Moore croons. “Just want to hear your political opinions and ride off into the night. Be my Rachel Maddow, be my Rachel Maddow … ”

Of course the song references Maddow getting access to President Donald Trump’s tax returns — at least, a 1040 form from 2005 — which dominated the news last week.

“There’s so many things I would like to tell you, but I can’t find the words. We could spend our weekends with you, analyzing tax returns,” sings Moore.

Moore told Mediaite that she wrote the song last Friday “after the hook popped into her head.”

“I just wanted to make something sweet and catchy and fun because it’s 2017 and we need more of that,” she told the publication. “I also liked the idea that your own personal Rachel Maddow could be a man or a woman or anywhere in between because it’s more about the idea of wanting to be with someone super smart, funny, and capable, who also happens to look really A+ in menswear.”

If you dig the Rachel Maddow jam, you can download the song here

Impeachable: A New Kind Of Protest Song

People have been wondering what folksinger/activists, some of them septuagenarians like Noel Paul Stookey and me, might be doing in the face of the current cataclysmic challenges to our democracy and our nation.

The answer is simple: we are going to keep on keeping on. We inherited a legacy from Woody, Pete Seeger and the Weavers and many others who inspired us. They never quit, never stopped and never stopped advocating. Doing so is “in our blood” and it’s a great gift to both Noel and me, as it would be to Mary – were she still to be with us. She would join, even (or maybe especially) at our advanced age, the current advocacies that “hammer out a warning”, “ring out danger” and “sing about the love between our brothers and our sisters”.  No, we’ve not “gone away”. We, and others who also come from the folk music/activist tradition, are solidly committed to using our music to generate community and consensus at our concerts and at gatherings and demonstrations to confront the most dangerous of challenges now threatening our country.

I have written, and currently perform, two songs that have come out of the presidential campaign and its results, one being The Children Are Listening and the other being, Lift Us Up.  I am grateful that, in a limited context (for sure) both of these songs have become rallying points for efforts to assert what is good in ourselves and what is reprehensible and frightening in the face of the recent election. 

By far the most important effort yet, by either Noel Paul or me – in terms of its reach and, in my opinion, its brilliance – is Impeachable, a parody Noel wrote of the song Unforgettable, which was a huge hit by Nat King Cole from the early 1950s.  Impeachable was just released on the internet and went viral with, currently, over 800,000 hits.  (Please share this link with your buddies and help us spread the message.)

Impeachable is an example of Noel’s extraordinary ability to write a super-funny, very surprising yet also, highly nuanced, lyric. He is, and has always been, an amazing songwriter. In its first public performance last weekend Impeachable brought the audience at our concert in Thousand Oaks, CA to its feet with a prolonged standing ovation. There were screeches of delight the likes of which I have never before heard at a Peter Paul and Mary concert.

Noel has clearly struck a hugely resonant chord amongst those who heard the hammer strokes warning of a grave danger to our nation, our democracy and, in fact, the whole earth.

Impeachable is a new twist on the kinds of songs that Peter Paul and Mary were singing that helped to mobilize Americans at the time of the Civil Rights Movement and the Anti-Vietnam War Movement.   Blowing In the Wind and If I Had a Hammer written by Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger & Lee Hays, respectively, were anthems that brought folks together in ways that let them recognize, in very personal ways, their collective strength as well as reassert a commonly held ethical/political perspective. Such was also the case with Where Have All the Flowers Gone and a myriad of other songs. With their repetition at rallies, marches and on the radio, these songs inspired many newcomers to the world of activism who asserted to us that our music, and that of our fellow folk musicians, became the “sound track of their political awakening”.  (In our view, this is one of the greatest compliments we ever received.)

Today, of course, the dominant transmission of such advocacies comes through social media, though in-person efforts such as The Women’s March on Washington, and the demonstrations at Standing Rock that electrified the nation are still, I believe, the most powerful tools for social/political mobilization.

Also, there is another new aspect to a musician’s, or an actor’s, or any artist’s efforts in the realm of advocacy. In this time, humor, as offered by the likes of John Oliver, the gifted cast and guests, such as the amazing Alec Baldwin, on Saturday Night Live, Samantha Bee, Melissa McCarthy, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah, to name just a few, has played a huge role in inspiring and activating the spirit of our nation. It cuts through the extreme “noise” in tweets, frightening pronouncement and actions emanating from the current administration,

Please take heart my friends. From my travels, I have found that there has been a huge call to action heeded, even (and emphatically) in my and Noel’s elder demographic. Be assured that a large body of former artist-activists is mobilizing now with their songs, their poetry, their heart-rending videos, their humor and their visual work on signs and memes that spread across the internet with ever more amazing directness, humor, and determination.  As long as this continues to build, we’re walking together and gaining strength.  Let’s carry it on, my friends.

In solidarity and love,
Peter

Impeachable
By Noel Paul Stookey

Impeachable, that’s what you are…
Impeachable, and yet so far…
You’ve avoided closer scrutiny
And even though Vlad-i-mer Putin, he
Opens many doors, it only makes you more…

Impeachable, and when, some day
We can say ‘you’re fired’ and you go away
You may have thought you were unreachable (but) history makes some moments teachable:
Someday Pence may be impeachable too

God Gave Me Visionary Song Writings

God Gave Me Visionary Song Writings


Martha L. Alvarado Inspirational Book: GOD GAVE ME VISIONARY SONG WRITINGS were conceived in 1979 and by 1982 God began giving her writings to the songs. They are powerful and anointed lyrics that were conceived through dreams and personal experiences. The music was downloaded into her spirit and the songs are accompanied with scriptures from the King James Version. Her oldest sister said to her “get the songs published” as Martha waited “For the appointed time. While waiting to deliver what God gave her in “songs,” she also waited for God’s timing. In 1983, the spirit of God said “speak my words,” Martha replied: “I don’t know how, the spirit of God said “I will teach you how, you will be Like Jeremiah and Ezekiel, just speak my words!” Martha replied: “Lord you have to be with me. In 2002, the spirit of God spoke to her, out of her belly and said “You’re pregnant with child;” she replied how can that be? The voice of God said “when you birth Joshua, you will sing.” In her new book, she imparts faith and twenty seven years of service into the hearts of the readers across the country and around the world. She shares with the readers the words that God gave her, in hope of restoring others to reach their potential in life by using what God gave you even in the face of limitations. A Spirit to Love was the first song that God gave her in a dream. These songs “reach beyond friends to enemies and persecutors.” Matthew5:44 Go Through…was downloaded into her spirit while she was ironing and packing her luggage one day; as God leads you, he will show you things to come and take you through doors you never dreamed of. “Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.” 2CO.4:10 Hold On was also given to her in a dream. In the dream she stretched herself out on the earth, and held on to the foundation while pulling souls up out of the pit. “Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with h

A Song For The President-Elect: Donald J. Twitter

Some folks spent January 1, 2017 nursing hangovers and watching college football. I spent it writing a song about President-elect Donald J. Trump and his increasingly dangerous Twitter habit. I’m not sure that my song, Donald J. Twitter, will land me a spot on the bill with Ted Nugent and Kid Rock at Trump’s upcoming inauguration, but one never knows.

DONALD J. TWITTER
(M. Farmer)

CHORUS
Hey, Kellyanne, give me my phone
I’m gonna need some time alone
You know I always do my best work on the shitter
And I don’t need Meet the Press or my own Gettysburg Address
When I can climb upon my throne
And get on Twitter

VERSE
Let’s go to @realdonaldtrump
Where my old brain can take a dump
And talk about the issues of the day
From pathetic SNL to amazing Israel
When I’m on the stump
Just watch me fire away

You know it’s anybody’s guess
As to when some global mess
Is gonna overwhelm my short attention span
Oh, but I’ll be there to tweet; I’ve gotta give my base red meat
That is unless
I switch to Instagram

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE
Well, my favorite way to tweet
Is to pick on some elite
And call him lots of kindergarten names
If he’s a third-rate loser clown, well, that’s the way I’ll take him down
Just bring the heat
Until he goes up in flames

And women ain’t immune
From the wrath of this tycoon
I’ve got 140 characters of hate
So if some beauty queen gets fat, I don’t grab her by the cat
I just lampoon
Her ever-changing weight

REPEAT CHORUS x2

Old Familiar Song

Old Familiar Song


Back in college, Larry Carson played drums in a friend’s band and fell in love with the lead singer, Geoffrey Mason. But all that’s in the past. Larry’s now thirty-five, divorced, and father to a precocious thirteen-year-old daughter. One day, when Larry picks Crystal up from school, a song comes on the radio by a new rockstar climbing the charts. Larry recognizes Geoff’s voice immediately, though Crystal calls him Geo and claims he’s the hottest new singer on the scene. Just hearing him brings back a flood of memories, reopening wounds Larry thought long healed. The more he listens to Geo’s music, the more Larry falls in love with his former boyfriend all over again. Partly to prove to his daughter that he used to know Geo back in the day, and partly to reconnect with his old friend, Larry buys tickets to an upcoming concert and manages to score backstage passes. But there was a reason Larry and Geoff lost touch – and stayed out of touch for so long. Will Geo even want to see Larry again after all this time? Or will the magic of their old familiar song bring about a harmonious duet?

Paul McCartney, Fergie, Other Stars Record ‘Love Song To The Earth’

Music superstars have come together to stress the importance of protecting our environment. 

A group of artists, including Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi and Sheryl Crow recorded “Love Song to the Earth” — a new song dedicated to rallying people to climate action and supporting the U.N.’s efforts to get nations to agree on a universal climate agreement. 

The song was released on iTunes and Apple Music on September 4, but will have a wide release a week later, according to a press release. Apple, as well as artists, producers and directors involved in the song plan to donate their proceeds to environmental organization Friends of the Earth U.S. and the United Nations Foundation. 

Toby Gad, who helped write the star-studded track — which comes out months before December’s climate conference COP21 in Paris — says he hopes the song will open people up to the importance of fighting climate change.  

“When the U.N. asked me to write a song about climate change I felt honored and inspired. So, my friends and I wrote ‘Love Song to The Earth’, focusing on a positive message about how precious our only planet is,” Gad said in a statement. “I hope this song will broaden the audience for this urgent message and give the politicians emotional support for meaningful climate agreement in Paris 2015.”

Other stars who were featured in the song include Fergie, Colbie Caillat, Natasha Bedingfield, Leona Lewis, Sean Paul, Johnny Rzeznik, Krewella, Angelique Kidjo, Kelsea Ballerini, Nicole Scherzinger, Christina Grimmie, Victoria Justice and Q’Orianka Kilcher. A video is set to be released on September 11, and will include celebrities, scientists and others holding up messages of support for our environment. 

While the artists want to convey a sense of urgency in fighting climate change, Bedingfield, who also helped write the song along with Gad, John Shanks and Sean Paul, says the song is ultimately meant to uplift others in regards to the subject. 

“We wanted to write a song that is about how when you love something, you look after it,” Bedingfield said in a statement. “While we know about the environmental issues, we’re unsure if there is any hope. With this song we wanted to talk about the environment in a way that would help people feel empowered to do something rather than be paralyzed by fear.”

Watch Cute Kids Sing John Oliver’s Song For DC Statehood

A group of cute kids gathered in front of the U.S. Capitol on Sunday morning to advocate for statehood for the District of Columbia, singing comedian John Oliver’s D.C. statehood song. 

On last Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” Oliver dedicated a segment to explaining the fight for statehood in Washington, D.C. At the end, Oliver led kids in a rendition of the famous “50 States Song” — with new lyrics.


Alabama and Alaska,
Arizona, Arkansas
California, Colorado
Connecticut and more
There are 50 states in total
And we’ll sing their names with glee
But there’s one place that gets shafted
And it’s Washington, D.C.

All the rest of us can choose a path

That we think is best

But any choice that D.C. makes

Is easily suppressed

‘Cause some asshole with a rider
Who might live in Tennessee
Can destroy a needle program
For preventing HIV.

The District of Columbia has no voting representation in Congress, but Congress has substantial control over the city’s budget and laws. Congress has frequently blocked or changed measures that D.C. residents voted to approve, such as marijuana legalization and needle exchange programs. While the District has a representative in Congress, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D), she has no formal powers.

“She basically has pretend power, like a child watching ‘Dora the Explorer,'” Oliver said.

Oliver’s segment has inspired a renewed fight for D.C. statehood among the city’s residents and elected officials. A community group called The Hill Is Home organized Sunday’s singalong.

John Oliver Has An Unforgettable New Version Of The ’50 States’ Song

John Oliver has a new version of the “50 States Song,” sung by adorable schoolchildren who want to know — quite explicitly — why Washington, D.C.,  is getting the shaft. 

On HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday, Oliver took a look at the long and strange history of our capital city’s rights and representation at the federal level. Or, more accurately, lack thereof. 

Congress has final say over the city’s rules, regulations and budget and has blocked or interfered with everything from marijuana legalization to needle exchanges. While Washington does has a representative — Eleanor Holmes Norton – she’s not actually allowed to vote on key issues.

Or as Oliver said, “she basically has pretend power,” like a child watching “Dora the Explorer.” 

“The people of D.C. clearly deserve a greater voice in their own affairs, and they’ve actually come tantalizingly close to getting a voting representative in Congress,” Oliver said. “In 2009, a bill to give D.C. a vote was introduced in the Senate, and the Senate did the most dickish thing imaginable: passing it, but with a little addition.” 

That addition was an amendment that would have repealed all gun-control laws in the city. As a result, the bill was dropped, and D.C. still doesn’t have a vote. 

Now, Oliver is calling for full statehood for Washington, D.C., and his plea comes in the form of an unforgettable tune. 

Check it out in the clip above.

Kendrick Lamar To Geraldo Rivera: ‘How Can You Take A Song That’s About Hope And Turn It Into Hatred?’

Kendrick Lamar’s opening performance of his new single “Alright” at this year’s annual BET Awards sparked some debate over at Fox News last week.

During a June 29 episode of Fox News’ “The Five” co-hosts Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino, Eric Bolling, and Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera took aim at Lamar’s performance, saying that the song’s lyrics are “not helpful at all” in improving police relations in the black community.

Rivera stated:

“This is why I say that hip-hop has done more damage to young African-Americans than racism in recent years. This is exactly the wrong message. And then to conflate what happened in the church in Charleston, South Carolina with the tragic incidents involving excessive use of force by cops is to equate that racist killer with these cops. It’s so wrong. It’s so counterproductive. It gives exactly the wrong message.”

Rivera’s claim that Lamar “conflates” police violence and the June 17 massacre of nine black Americans by a white gunman misrepresents “Alright,” which appears on Lamar’s sophomore album “To Pimp A Butterfly” released in March. Following Rivera’s comments, Lamar responded during an interview with TMZ Live in which he clarified the song’s message.

“How can you take a song that’s about hope and turn it into hatred?” he said. “The message, the overall message [of ’Alright’], is, ’We gon’ be alright.’ It’s not a message of ‘I want to kill people.’”

After asked by TMZ Live host, Harvey Levin if the symbol of Lamar performing on top of a vandalized cop car validates Rivera’s claim of “sending the wrong message,” Lamar said the problem has more to do with the reality of the police killings and than his BET Awards performance.

“I think his attempt is really diluting the real problem, which is the senseless acts of killings of these young boys out here. And I think for the most part, it’s avoiding the truth,” the Grammy Award-winner said. “This is reality. This is my world. This is what I talk about in my music. You can’t dilute that.”

kendrick lamar reality
Lamar went on to explain how he hopes to influence change among young people through his music.

“Hip-hop is not the problem. Our reality is the problem of the situation…This is our music. This is us expressing ourselves. Rather [than] going out here and doing the murders myself, I want to express myself in a positive light the same way other artists are doing. Not going out in the streets, go in the booth and talking about the situation and hoping these kids can find some type of influence on it in a positive manner.”

Take Down the Flag: Peter Mulvey’s Growing Song of Tribute a Call to Action

We know these names: Clementa Pinckney, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Cynthia Hurd, Susie Jackson, Ethel Lee Lance, DePayne Middleton-Doctor, Tywanza Sanders, Daniel L. Simmons Sr., Myra Thompson. A week ago, they were alive.

A week ago, during the hour of the night in which they were studying the practice of peace and love, a young white man fueled with racist ideology and its historical narrative of hatred entered their church and shot them dead. This man carried more than a gun — he carried in his mind a controversial symbol of the South: the Confederate flag.

This past week, flags have been lowered to half-staff. But not all of them. “Every flag over Charleston is at half-staff today — except one.” This is the first line of a new song, “Take Down Your Flag,” by singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey. On tour with Ani DiFranco last week, he saw the news of the Emanuel A.M.E. Church massacre and decided to write a song. He wrote it Friday night in the basement dressing room of the Calvin Theatre in Northampton, Massachusetts, right before his set. Then he performed it. This isn’t just any song. It’s one with a mission.

In a Facebook post, Peter writes, “In Charleston, the United States Flag and the South Carolina state flag are at half-mast for nine days, for the nine victims. But the Confederate battle flag is flying at the top of its pole. News outlets are reporting that lowering it can only be done by a vote of the state legislature. I submit that lowering it can be done by two hands and human decency.”

The song ends:

It will take all of the love in all of our hearts,
but it will also take something more.

Take down your flag to half-staff.
Take down your flag to half-staff.
Take down your flag to half-staff
And then take it down for good.

The Confederate flag has been flying high, a finger poking into a centuries-old open wound. Peter’s song demands that the flag at least be lowered to half-staff this Wednesday, when the body of Reverend Clementa Pinckney will lie in state at the South Carolina Capitol. “The thing that I’d most like to see,” he says, “is the Confederate flag at half-staff while Pinckney is lying in state underneath it. That would take just a small bit of the edge of the pain so many (including myself) are feeling.” The song also gives tribute to and remembrance of the nine people lost in this horrendous attack.

Peter uploaded the original version of “Take Down Your Flag” to YouTube on Saturday. It includes a verse remembering Susie Jackson. Someone asked if he’d write verses for all nine who were killed; by that time, two musicians had already covered the song, and Peter asked if they’d re-write their own verses in remembrance. This started a domino effect of musicians covering, re-writing, recording, and uploading their own additions.

Ani DiFranco sings a verse for Tywanza Sanders, Anaïs Mitchell gives tribute to DePayne Middleton-Doctor, and Erin McKeown sings about Sharonda Coleman-Singleton. Pamela Means‘ lyrics include: “Clementa Pinckney worked tirelessly for justice, peace, and love.” Vance Gilbert, speaking to the symbolism and historical residue of the Confederate flag, wrote a verse about alleged gunman Dylann Roof. Peter Mulvey most recently added a lyric for Reverend Pinckney: “Clementa Pinckney will lie in state on Wednesday afternoon. Please do not fly that flag over his body.”

In a matter of days, “Take Down Your Flag” has become a living song. Peter has just uploaded a video containing the chords and framework in hopes that more people will continue to grow this song and commemorate those we’ve lost.

Musicians, please think about recording this song with a new verse and sharing it with the world. It’s become a chain song of love, remembrance, and honor, and, most importantly, it’s a call to action. In a time like this, the world needs songs like this.

Chris Martin Performed Coldplay Song At Beau Biden’s Funeral

Chris Martin paid tribute to Vice President Joe Biden’s son Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer last week, during his funeral Saturday.

Martin volunteered to perform at Biden’s funeral service in Wilmington, Delaware, when he found out that the former Delaware attorney general was a big Coldplay fan, according to a White House official. Martin performed an acoustic version of Coldplay’s “Til Kingdom Come” near the end of the service. Afterwards, Martin hugged the vice president and his wife, Jill Biden.

Earlier during the ceremony, President Barack Obama gave an emotional eulogy, praising the former attorney general. “Beau Biden was an original,” Obama said at the St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church. “He was a good man, a man of character, a man who loved deeply and was loved in return.”

Joseph “Beau” Biden III was first diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013, three years after suffering a minor stroke. He died at age 46.

Paloma Herrera’s Swan Song

2015-05-28-1432845875-8265406-gherrerabows2gs.jpg

She entered the stage to a roar of applause, pausing on the tips of her toes, exhaling and taking in the cavernous Metropolitan Opera House. Was this the title character Giselle, breathing in a new day and unaware of the tragic fate before her, or a veteran performer relishing her final moments on a stage? The music continues without her, she skips ahead, catching up with an easy smile. This is home.

So began the first of American Ballet Theatre’s farewell performances this season. Paloma Herrera, the first of three star ballerinas who have defined a generation of artistry, bid her farewell to New York with minimal fanfare at the Wednesday matinee of Giselle. She started dancing in her native Argentina at age seven at the Teatro Colón, winning a slew of ballet competitions, before being invited to enroll at the School of American Ballet at 15. After performing the lead in Raymonda Variations at the school’s workshop, she auditioned for ABT and received a contract on the spot. “If Herrera continues as she has begun, she could become the outstanding American ballerina of her generation.” said dance critic Joseph Mazo, echoed by his colleague Anna Kisselgoff as “the spirit of rebirth” at ABT. At 19, Herrera became the youngest Principal Dancer in the company’s history, a prodigy in the tutu-and-tiara ballets that are the staple of ABT’s repertory.

2015-05-28-1432846524-7434259-gherrerabolle3gs.jpg

Paloma Herrera and Roberto Bolle in Giselle. Photo by Gene Schiavone.

I remember first seeing Herrera perform ten years ago when I first moved to New York, and since then in every classical warhorse ballet imaginable. She possesses a crystalline technique paired with a natural lyricism and ease about her movements. She is also dynamic, whipping off turns and blazing through jumps at lightning speed. The best place to see this is her as Kitri, the ballerina in Don Quixote, which catapulted her to international stardom in her early days in the company when she was still in her teens. I remember seeing ABT’s Don Quixote last season shortly after Paloma’s retirement was announced. With the ballet not in repertory the following season, some of us in the audience realized midway through the performance: Oh my God, this is Paloma’s last Don Q. She looked dazzling, holding her balances on the tips of her toes as long as possible to the growing cheers from the audience. And then just like that, it was over.

Herrera moved up her retirement performance from her original exit in ABT’s new production of The Sleeping Beauty to Wednesday’s Giselle, because “I don’t feel comfortable with [The Sleeping Beauty], I wanted to do something that I’ve done a lot with ABT.” Performing alongside Roberto Bolle as her Albrecht, Herrera has chosen a production which she has danced season after season to great acclaim, compared often to Hamlet in terms of its dramatic demands.

The performance was different than other performances of Giselle – much more was at stake. Instead of Albrecht experiencing one last encounter with the spectral title character, it was in fact that audience who found themselves grasping to take in the final moments of Herrera’s interpretation. While more appropriate in Don Quixote, she lingered in her balances in the first act solo, a final tease to an expectant audience. A woman behind me gasped “What?!” as Herrera finished the devilishly quick turns to finish. Her mad scene was jarring, Herrera’s eyes darting around the stage, hearing the calls of the Willis in her head.

In the second act, Thomas Forster as a sympathetic Hilarion was the first victim of the ghostly Willis, condemning men to dance to their deaths. Devon Teuscher, replacing Veronika Part, was ethereal as Myrtha, Queen of the Willis. Bolle replaced Albrecht’s series of brisés with 32 entrechat six, a more and more frequent substitution for male dancers, squarely punctuating the most rhythmic and driving section of Adam’s luscious score. The ballet ends with Albrecht reaching for Giselle as she vanishes back into the mist, her soul finally at rest. She no longer has to dance. Bolle reaches for Herrera in those final moments, in this performance, he is us, grasping the last visual pictures of this great performing artist on stage. The curtain closes on Bolle, a proxy for the audience, delicately holding a single white lily and in awe of what he just experienced.

2015-05-28-1432846284-6805094-gherrerabows1gs.jpg

There were tears and muffled sobs from the balletomanes around the theater, interspersed with tourists bustling out, unaware of the special nature of the performance. The fans that stayed were treated to a parade of American Ballet Theatre’s dancers and crew, who came out to greet Herrera as she took her final bows. A zigzag of corps girls dropped flowers on a growing pile at center stage, and one by one the Principal artists of the company came out to pay their respects to a colleague under a slow but constant trickle of confetti. From the audience, a sea of glowing cell phones bubbled up to record the moment, as choruses of “PA-LO-MA! PA-LO-MA!” reverberated through the Metropolitan Opera House. Within ten minutes, the bows were over, and the audience spilled out of the air conditioning and onto the baking concrete sidewalks of New York. And just like that, it was over.

A Real Live Country Song

A Real Live Country Song


A Real Live Country Song” was written in November 1987, inspired by a song that Mike Johnson had written in October of that year, which was in turn inspired by some barroom tales by some of his drinking buddies. The story is told in the first person by young Kyle Richards who lives in the little town of Travis Texas, just west of Houston. He starts out with a glimpse of life with his rather congenial family, his desire to travel the country on his Harley-Davidson Sportster, and one day record country songs in a Nashville studio with his father. After a holiday fishing trip with his Deputy Sheriff father went south because of trouble at the Houston County Jail, Kyle decides to throw in some extra hours at Clancy’s General store, where he works as a delivery boy. The morning starts out routinely, deliveries, drooling over Jan, Clancy’s daughter and store manager, and washing the pickup truck. While taking a soda break on the front porch a glimmer of light bouncing off the highway catches his attention. Soon a figure wearing a cowboy hat tops the last of the rolling grades before it levels out and passes the store, and it becomes apparent to Kyle that the person is wearing mirror sunglasses. The cowboy is trying to thumb a ride and eventually works his way into Clancy’s lot and plops down on the stairs. Kyle silently sizes him up and slowly works up the nerve to engage him. Intrigued by the strange paw print design on the cowboy’s tote bag and guitar’s headstock, as well as the fine looking guitar, Kyle eases in by seeing if the cowboy was thirsty and hungry. A casual conversation about the paw print, the cowboy’s guitar and their own music choices slowly melts the ice and soon the cowboy is singing some of their favorite country songs. With each passing song vignettes of the traveler’s experiences unfold, leading Kyle to suspect that maybe this cowboy isn’t so ordinary after all.

Sweden Wins 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

VIENNA (AP) — Sweden won the 60th Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday, finishing ahead of Russia, whose contestant received some boos as the Ukraine conflict spilled over into the continent’s largest songfest.

Italy came in third. Australia, which was given a wild-card entry for this year due to its enthusiastic fan base and took part for the first time, was a dark horse, with many hoping candidate Guy Sebastian would triumph and secure a place for the country next year.

His failure to do so, placing fifth, means Australia will probably not be back next year.

The race between Russia and Sweden went back and forth for most of the evening as jurors from 40 countries cast their ballots, along a worldwide audience voting by phone and app.

The win by Mans Zelmerlow and his song “Heroes” marks a record seventh time that Sweden has taken top honors in the contest.

His win comes 41 years after that of Swedish group Abba, whose triumph in 1974 with “Waterloo” launched their world career.

About 200 million people watched on TV Saturday as the 27 finalists battled it out musically. Approximately 10,000 people followed the contest live in Vienna’s mammoth Stadthalle.

Last year’s win by bearded cross-dresser Conchita Wurst vaulted the contest into even greater worldwide popularity.

Wurst, who co-hosted the show, was critical of the scattered boos that met Russian contestant Polina Gagarina and her pacifist-themed song “A Million Voices,” calling the reaction “incomprehensible.”

Eurovision Song Contest To Be Signed For Deaf Viewers For First Time In History

Cue the signing!

In light of Conchita Wurst’s barrier-breaking win last year, the Eurovision Song Contest has decided to include sign language interpreters during broadcasts of the massive competition. A team of six interpreters will help translate the songs into International Sign, a broad-ranging version of non-spoken language that can reach a majority of deaf viewers.

The annual competition, now in its 60th year, attracts around 180 million viewers worldwide. An estimated 750,000 deaf or partially deaf people live in the European Union, according to the European Center for Modern Languages.

“We always say that music is a language which is understood by everyone,” a spokesperson for ORF TV, the Austrian network broadcasting the contest, said. “We felt that we should make this [a] reality, and to offer music to everyone, including deaf people.”

A preview video of the contest’s signers already looks pretty epic.

Earlier this year, a video of interpreter Tommy Krångh performing a song during a Swedish singing competition went viral, thanks to his gusto and spot-on signing.

Despite that signer’s enthusiasm, Kathrin Zechner, managing director ORF TV, said the Eurovision interpreters were there to supplement the contest, not steal the spotlight, the BBC reported.

“They are supporting and interpreting for the artist and the viewers,” she said. “They are stars but they are not ego-centric; they’re spreading the emotion.”

The finals of the Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast on May 23. Nine countries — Austria, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Latvia, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Slovenia — will broadcast the sign language translations, which will also be viewable online.

The Chrysanthemum and the Song


Music helps form and nurture ethnic identity for large populations of people of Japanese descent in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, and Paraguay. In a story never before told, Dale Olsen offers a musical history and ethnography of this vibrant Asian diaspora, the largest population of overseas Japanese in the world and one of the most successful subcultures in South America. An early immigration of Nikkei – people of Japanese heritage – landed on the coast of Peru in 1899. Hundreds of thousands more arrived in the first half of the 20th century, most seeking work as agricultural laborers. Olsen argues that music became essential for nourishing their ‘Japaneseness,’ perhaps second only to speaking the Japanese language. Music making, music listening, and dancing all express the soul of the people and tell others who they are, he says. Communicated and transmuted through the intricate workings of collective memory, music has the power to reconstruct and manipulate cultural identity; it helps immigrants maintain strong connections to their ancestral home and to forge new ones in their adopted culture. Olsen provides a history of Nikkei emigration and music from the Japanese homelands, comments on the contributions and the roles of song contests and karaoke in shaping their new social life and identity, and discusses Nikkei aesthetic values. His research sources include interviews, memoirs of immigrants and their children, newspaper accounts of Nikkei musical experiences and thoughts, and observations of musical events. Olsen also documents and interprets his own performances with and for the Nikkei on the Japanese shakuhachi flute. Covering five generations of Nikkei over more than a century, this ethnomusicological investigation makes an original contribution to Japanese diaspora studies. It will be of special interest to scholars of the sociology of immigrant cultures and identity formation, Asian and Latin American studies, and ethnomusicology. It offers a model.

Drop the Hobbit, Go with the Selkie: Hour of the Wolf Movie Review of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armiesand& Song of the Sea

2014-12-26-Hobbit_HBT3066511r_410.jpgThere’s a bit of OCD that goes along with genre film fandom — once you’ve signed on to a franchise, you’re kind-of obligated to follow it wherever it will take you, for good or ill. Thus the sullen air hanging over screenings of Revenge of the Sith or any of the Wolverine spin-offs — it really does sap the energy out of an auditorium when attendance is more dutiful than enthusiastic.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the final installment of Peter Jackson’s latest J.R.R. Tolkien trilogy, and to say it’s long-awaited is to say that fans of fantasy have been eager to get this bloated, unnecessary epic over with and move on to better things. I give my thoughts on how Jackson wraps up this prequel tale in my review for Jim Freund’s Hour of the Wolf, and also give my verdict on the much more engaging, Irish animated fantasy, Song of the Sea.

Almost 100 years old! Joyce said to me, You are so cute. Me cute? I was never called cute when I was a little girl, and now that I am almost 100 years old, I am cute? This really gives me a chuckle. I am sitting at my daughter s home in my own recliner that was brought from my house. They took me kicking and screaming from my home, not literally but inside. Someone took my most prized possession, my sewing machine, which, even if it is a treadle sewing machine, it has brought me much joy. I sewed many of my dresses on it and when I started making cloth dolls it served me well. I made over 100 cloth dolls and for each doll I made dresses, bonnets, booties and bloomers. I gave them to anyone who wanted to have a cuddly doll to hold. I taught the little girls next door how to sew doll clothes, a skill they can take into adulthood, I hope. I have written my childhood memories many times. I still like to go back in time in my mind. I can t get around as fast as I used to, even if I walk often for exercise. I can still read and pray and think of the dear friends I left behind that met in my home most Sundays for fellowship. I always brought my sweet rolls to the potlucks we shared. We had good visits and laughter. I love remembering the ministers who I had in my home through the years. What a privilege it was. The spirit they showed by their life encouraged me in my faith. I have had a good long life. The sad times I can t forget, and it makes me almost cry. I will never forget when my baby died, waking up and finding her cold. Or the terrible time my son got run over and died. There was much horror and sorrow when my daughter and her family were burned in a plane crash. I lost my three grandchildren and dear Ginna was burned so badly. It has been 30 years since my husband died suddenly. Ruth lived with me for eight years, but her heart gave out and she died.

First Nighter: Amusing “Billy & Ray,” Affecting “brownsville song (b-side for tray)”

The Billy & Ray of the vague title Mike Bencivenga gives his play at the Vineyard are Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler. By practically sheer accident the two men–and only after director Wilder had a rift with longtime partner Charles Brackett–collaborated in 1943-44 on the screen adaptation of James M. Cain’s steamy novel of the same title.

While censor Joseph Breen was breathing down their necks, they focused on making the film version even steamier. It was an aim that film noir fans will cheer them for achieving with innumerable subtleties but not without much friction along the way.

The daily battle didn’t go without notice at the time, although apparently no one recorded it in its entirely–or filmed it. But Wilder spoke about it and, in particular, to James Linville for a 1996 Paris Review interview. He also allowed Charlotte Chandler, no relation to Raymond, to write the 2002 biography Nobody’s Perfect.

It’s likely those are at least two of the sources for what is a highly amusing, highly polished comedy about the several months the temporary partners hashed out the seven-Oscars-nominated classic.

Less than comic, however, is the worry Jewish immigrant Wilder (Vincent Kartheiser) had about the family who’d stayed behind in Europe and are reported missing or the secret drinking Chandler (Larry Pine), supposedly on-the-wagon to elderly wife Cissy, slowly allowed to get out of hand during the pair’s sessions.

As Wilder baits Chandler, who’d never been on a movie studio premises before (let alone attempted a screenplay of his works or the works of others), Chandler refuses to get over his disdain of the $ 750-weekly assignment and continually objects to Wilder’s quirks. The director-writer’s handy-dandy secretary Helen Hernandez (Sophie von Haselberg) tends amiably to the two men’s demands and neophyte producer Joe Sistrom (Drew Gehling) hovers about wringing his hands over seeing no pages.

Billy & Ray–which has little in common with David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow about two Tinseltown execs working on a script and aided by a secretary and more in common with Neil Simon’s Sunshine Boys–wouldn’t be half the fun it is without the players, swinging into it under Garry Marshall’s first piece of Manhattan stage direction. (The opus was initially produced at Burbank’s Falcon Theatre by Marshall, Kathleen Marshal LaGambina and Sherry Greczmiel.)

No regular Manhattan theater regular will be surprised by Pine’s impersonation of the Ivy League-ish Chandler, who looks and behaves nothing like his Philip Marlowe. After all, Pine–who recently played the brittle title character in An Unauthorized Biography of Walt Disney and then cross-dressed for Casa Valentina–makes everything he takes on seem as if he’s simply doing it off-the-frayed–cuff. Pine is especially funny on author Cain’s deficiencies, one dishy quote verified in the Paris Review chat.

The welcome surprise is Kartheiser, best (and perhaps only) known as the ambitious Pete Campbell on the soon-to-wrap Mad Men. What he offers here is a complete transformation. Speaking loudly in a Viennese accent (no dialect coach mentioned in the program) and carrying a big stick, he says ungrammatical things like “What did he did?” He also says about the groundbreaking he wants to do with Double Indemnity that “It’s time the pictures grew up.” Nosirree, Mad Men freaks, Kartheiser looks nothing like Pete Campbell, and bravo for that.

Gehling does completely right by the anxious Sistrom, a New York transplant afraid he’s about to be sent right back where he started from. Von Haselberg is so good at what she’s asked that she should soon cease to have it mentioned that her mom is Bette Midler. She does have a bit of the wonderful Divine Miss M strut.

Her blocky ’40s shoes are a big help, as found by costumer Michael Krass. As a matter of fact, all the duds look authentically ’40s–especially Helen’s ensembles and the casual wear Wilder affects. Chandler’s outfits resemble any professor’s who might have been crossing a campus in the last several decades, and in his blue suit Sistrom gets to be the suit.

Billy and Ray–that’s how Wilder insists they address each other to Chandler’s chagrin–carry out the ultimately extremely successful bellicosities in a sleek Paramount office designed by Charlie Corcoran, who may not have read the Linville interview and its mention of the man’s digs. Apparently, Wilder had hung a prominent sign featuring the question, “What Would Lubitsch Do?”–Ernst Lubitsch being a strong Wilder influence. Also, there are photograph of Wilder with fellow director-writers like Akira Kurosawa, John Huston and Federico Fellini. Corcoran has a Picasso and a Lautrec on the walls he puts up, along with portraits of various Paramount pretties.

At one moment, Wilder steps out on the walkway leading downstairs and spots Bing Crosby in white collar for the filming of Going My Way. Things were certainly going Crosby’s way, since all the 1944 Oscars for which Double Indemnity was nominated, went to Der Bingle’s release. Nice that Wilder and Chandler get a bit of a payback with Bencivenga’s entirely satisfying entry.

Kimber Lee’s brownsville song (b-side for tray)–the all-lower-case letters are Lee’s stipulation–starts out at a tough level with gray-haired Lena (Lizan Mitchell) angrily declaring that the story about to unfold should not begin with her. While insisting, she does get across that the subject matter is a grandson, Tray (Sheldon Best), who was shot four times and killed as an innocent bystander in a local shoot-out.

Thereupon the dead boy’s story gets underway, and it’s an upsetting one, as Lee intends it to be. Clearly, she has in mind putting forth one ghetto youngster to stand for all of the promising young men and women done in by stray bullets and who then turn up in the kind of news coverage that never seems to stop.

Tray is a skilled boxer, who’s also a candidate for a college education and a caring brother to younger sister Devine (Taliyah Whitaker). He’s being tutored on his required college essay by Merrell (Sun Mee Chomet), who’s his and Devine’s estranged mother, a woman who lost her bearings after her husband died. By horrific coincidence, the dead husband and father was, like Tray, also killed by four bullets.

The admirably and unfailingly good Tray holds down a Starbucks barista job, where Merrell, needing work, lands a position. Tray helps her learn the ropes, and he tolerates his pal Junior (Chris Myers), who’s constitutionally sullen and doesn’t get Tray.

Kicking off the drama as robustly as Lee does, she can’t resist allowing sentimentality to slip in before the final fadeout. It’s her commitment to showing the great loss to society suffered when young people disappear in a violent society doing little to improve itself. Who can blame her, when, for instance, she reveals the essay Tray writes that qualifies him for no less than a hefty grant he’ll never claim?

As directed with understanding by Patricia McGregor, the actors are impeccable. Andromache Chalfant’s set gets the point across. It’s dominated by a corrugated garage door with Tray’s face painted on it over the insistent word “Memory.” The same goes for Asa Wember’s evocative sound design.

The enterprise has the feel of a rap song made stage-ready. Perhaps that’s the explanation for the “b-side” in the title, although if records with what used to be widely known as b-sides (as opposed to the more commercially-intended a-side) still exist, I’m caught off guard.

Oh, I see, Lee may be implying that boys like Tray are unfairly regarded as no more than b-sides. If so, how damning is that?

Listen To ‘South Park’s Fake Lorde Song, ‘Push (Feeling Good On A Wednesday),’ In Full

“South Park” has released the full fake Lorde song, “Push (Feeling Good On A Wednesday),” from the recent episode in which it was revealed that Lorde is actually character Randy Marsh in disguise. Lorde expressed her love for the caricature, praising the episode’s humor and “message of transgender acceptance.” While the song was recorded by Sia, that didn’t stop Lorde from taking a crack at the chorus herself. Further, “South Park” is giving the song away for free, so now there’s nothing stopping us from singing, “Now we push, push to stand together / Because I am Lorde, ya ya ya,” everywhere at every moment.

Jimmy Fallon, will.i.am Debut ‘Ew!’ Song And Music Video

Jimmy Fallon and will.i.am have united for a music video, and the result is definitely not “Ew!”

The pair dressed up as teenage girls as part of Fallon’s recurring “Tonight Show” segment, “Ew!”

Fallon, as usual, plays Sara, while will.i.am becomes mir.i.am. Together, the two create a musical manifesto of all things “Ew!” — including bread bowls, duck lips and “impleggies.”

One listen, and “Ew!” will probably be stuck in your head for all eternity, or at least for the rest of the day. But if you want more, the song is for sale as a digital download on iTunes.

Cost is $ 1.29, which is seriously not “Ew!” because the cash is going to the SeriousFun Children’s Network and the i.am.angel Foundation.

‘Frozen Fever,’ An Animated Short With An All-New Song, Will Debut In 2015

The kingdom of isolation just got another inhabitant. Disney will release “Frozen Fever” in the spring of 2015, a new short film featuring characters from “Frozen.” Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will return to direct the short, which will include a brand-new song from Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the Oscar-winning duo behind “Let It Go.”

“It’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk,” reads a plot description for “Frozen Fever” provided by Disney. As the studio noted, Olaf, the snowman voiced by Josh Gad in “Frozen,” will also appear. No word from the studio if Gad or stars Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Jonathan Groff (as respectively, Anna, Elsa and Kristoff) will reprise their voice roles for the short.

Released on Nov. 22 of last year, “Frozen” grossed $ 1.274 billion worldwide. It won two Oscars at the Academy Awards back in March: Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (for “Let It Go”).

For reference, the films Disney has set for release next spring include “Tomorrowland” with George Clooney and Pixar’s “Inside Out.” The studio will also release “Cinderella” in early March.

The Guy Perfectly Impersonating 29 Celebrities While Singing An Original Song Is A Fake

Remember this incredibly impressive video that popped up all over your Facebook feed earlier this month? You know the one, where one guy does 29 celebrity impressions while singing his original song, “Perfect.” The one that amassed nearly seven million views in under two weeks.

Well, this guy, with all his mighty talent and Billie Holiday imitation, is a fake. Yup, just like that flammable Worst Twerk Fail Ever video, the Epic Note-Passing on Delayed Flight sensation and the Human Barbie: FAKE. (Actually, scratch that last one.)

Rob Cantor, the man behind this well-orchestrated Internet hoax, posted yet another YouTube video Wednesday, July 9, explaining the workings behind the scenes.

“’29 Celebrity Impressions, 1 Original Song’ was created with the help of eleven impressionists and one trumpet player,” Cantor writes in his description. In the video, he admits he “cannot do a single celebrity impression.” His gift, apparently, is that of lip syncing.

Consider all our dreams shattered.

Love Song

Love Song


She’s a rock star, he’s not. That doesn’t stop them from making beautiful music… The lights, the crowds, the shows—the success that comes with topping the rock charts seems bright and glittering. For Ami, lead singer of the mega-hot band Haunted, it’s anything but. She’s tired of being “on” every waking second. There’s never any time to breathe, and the pressure is driving her toward becoming a dangerous cliché—the drunken musician. Desperate to regain control of her life, she runs, looking for space. For peace. For herself. What she finds is Edward. Having a famous rock star staying in his home, Edward is enchanted and stunned. How could a woman like her be drawn to his simple, down-to-earth lifestyle? There’s only one thing he can offer her: a willingness to help with no strings attached. Slowly, in Edward’s arms, Ami gets back in touch with the woman she remembers. The one who loves music. Laughter. The touch of a lover’s hands on her body. But the real world won’t let her hide forever. The consequences could cost her her hard-won peace…and her muse.

The 10 Most Shamelessly Obvious Song Lyrics Ever Written

Listen: We’re not here to bash the simple pleasure of listening to pop songs. There’s a certain joy that comes with being up all night, partying hard, throwing your hands in the air like you just don’t care, and saying baby just one more time.

But often, our favorite pop songs are so catchy that we tend to scan over some of the more head-scratching lyrics. In partnership with Virgin Mobile, we’re counting down the most obvious lyrics in recent memory.

Scroll all the way down for the complete playlist, and please, please tell us what we missed in the comments.

1. Most Obvious Award
Avril Lavigne – “Sk8er Boi”

THE LYRIC:: He was a boy / She was a girl / Can I make it any more obvious?

I don’t know … can you?

Making it more obvious, Avril continues: “He was a punk / She did ballet / What more can I say?” Spoiler alert: she says more, and true to the alternagirl pop trope, Girl gets Boy who was passed on by Popular Girl, who is pretty but undeserving of companionship and maybe dumb and by mid-song, a single mom (“she sits at home / feeding the baby, she’s all alone”)? We never do find out what happened to our Girl’s burgeoning ballet career.

2. Well, You Might As Well Just Say It Award
Beyonce – “Ego”

THE LYRIC:
It’s too big (big) / It’s too wide (wide)
[Ed: We get it.]
It’s too strong (strong) / It won’t fit (fit)
[No, really.]
It’s too much (much) / It’s too tough (tough)
He talk like this ’cause he can back it up
He got a big ego / Such a huge ego
I love his big ego

Look, DON’T GET US WRONG, we love Beyonce, but sexual innuendo ceases to be so when it’s this, well, obvious.

HONORABLE MENTION goes to Robin Thicke for not specifying what rhymes with “hug me.”

3. Thanks for Elaborating, We Weren’t Aware You Were Talking About Your Romantic Feelings Award
Next – “Too Close”

THE LYRIC: The way that you shake it on me / Makes me want you so bad … sexually

This does not change the fact that this song is still a total jam.

4. Most Assertive Ownership of Appendages Award
Jewel – “Hands”

THE LYRIC: My hands are small I know / But they’re not yours / They are my own

Not yours! Mine! Like a growing infant, Jewel expresses new layers of self-awareness vis-a-vis her own hands. The movie equivalent of this song portrays our leading lady or man soul-searching by leaning over the sink and staring into the mirror. Subtle!

5. Cutest Threat Ever Award
Metallica – “Enter Sandman”

THE LYRIC: Close the door, shut the light, heavy thoughts tonight! / And they aren’t of Snow White!

In case you didn’t note the thundering drum beat or chugging guitars, this is an Angry song best used to intimidate an opponent in sports. This song is a “metaphor” about nightmares, i.e., NOT dreams of Snow Whiii-ee-iiiiite or other members of the Disney family. [Ed: Snow White is actually kind of terrifying?]

6. Most Obvious Product Placement Award
Britney Spears – “Perfume”

THE LYRIC: I’ll never tell, tell on myself / But I hope she smells my perfume

Britney doesn’t pull any punches here. She has perfume, and she really hopes you buy it at your nearest department store smell it.

7. Can You Leave My Cousin Out Of This Award
Drake – “Shut It Down”

THE LYRIC: Yeah, baby, you finer than your fine cousin / And your cousin fine

Drake adds insult to injury by telling you that you’re finer than your fine cousin — you know, the fine one, he says, helpfully. Drizzy, this is not a way to give a girl a compliment.

8. Worst (Best?) Dad Joke
Barenaked Ladies – “Pinch Me”

THE LYRIC: I could hide out under there / I just made you say ‘underwear’

Womp. We saw this painfully obvious joke coming from miles away.

9. Most Educational Award / Most Obvious Crossover Ploy
Pitbull – “I Know You Want Me”

THE LYRIC: One, two, three, four / Uno, dos, tres, quatro

“So, I’ll count in English. And then … I’ll count in Spanish. Crossover! Double money! Woooooo!” — The Tao of Pitbull

HONORABLE MENTION goes to U2 for teaching us how to count to catorce, the Black Eyed Peas for teaching us the days of the week, and Gwen Stefani for teaching us how to spell “bananas.

10. Most Well-Groomed Feet, Feet Award
Ke$ ha – “Tik Tok”

THE LYRIC: I’m talking / Pedicures on our toes, toes

We could single out any number of lyrics from Ke$ ha’s oeuvre, but this one wins for giving us helpful advice on where one should put a pedicure.

Some things are so obvious that we shouldn’t have to spell them out. Switching to Virgin Mobile is one of those things. (But that’s V-I-R-G-I-N M-O-B-I-L-E if you didn’t get it the first time.)

Is ‘Let It Go’ a Protest Song for the Toddler Set?

At any given moment in America right now, thousands, perhaps millions of children are belting out the platinum hit from Frozen, “Let It Go.” Some of their moms are singing along, mainly because it’s impossible to get this tune out of your head.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great song. I liked the movie. Idina Menzel has some serious pipes, as she will prove once again when she performs “Let It Go” at the Oscars on Sunday. But I worry that I’ll have a hard time sitting through her big number, because if I hear that song one more time I might stick my head in the oven. My daughters sing it, my niece sings it, my friend’s two sons sing it. A kid on the subway sang it at the top of her lungs on my 3 train the other day, all the way from Clark Street in Brooklyn to Times Square. Her father looked stricken and glassy-eyed. The song has been streamed 25 million times; the sheet music is sold out and on a three month backorder. It’s the show-stopping climax of the sing-along version of Frozen, in theaters now.

You have to ask yourself why “Let it Go” has imprinted so strongly on kids. Why is this hit bigger than other good ditties, like “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid or “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast? Here’s my theory: It’s a protest song for the under-12 set. They’ve had it up to here with our modern parenting methods in general, and our approach to discipline in particular. They don’t want to sit under the “peace tree” or earn another good-behavior sticker on yet another chart, and they especially don’t want to take a freaking time out. Just look at the lyrics of “Let It Go” and tell me Elsa isn’t in a time out (aka a “kingdom of isolation”), enraged and defiant and subverting the dynamic by embracing her exile.

“Let it go, let it go,
Can’t hold you back anymore.
Let it go, let it go,
Turn my back and slam the door.
Here I stand, and here I’ll stay.
Let it go, let it go…
The cold never bothered me anyway.”

Like so many parents of my generation, I practiced the time-out as a sensitive, well-reasoned response to naughtiness. So much better than spanking, right? My dad used to spank me when I was really, really bad. It always went like this: He would get home from work, hear about my crime, set me up at the end of a hallway that ran the length of our apartment, and give me a good swat. Then I was free to run down what I always thought of as The Spanking Hall, screaming at the top of my lungs. But after that, it was over. I’d come back and everyone would sit together, a little red in the face, eating dinner. We all felt bad, but no one was banished.

Just so we’re clear, I’m not advocating a return to corporal punishment. But perhaps we’re overusing the disciplinary alternatives in our quest to make sure our kids share, behave in restaurants, sit still at circle time and never go bonkers with a Sharpie. Should we give our kids a little more slack, before this songfest becomes a full-on revolt? Next time one of my daughters legitimately screws up, you know what I’m planning to do: [Sing it with me] Let it go.

Lea Michele Releases Song, ‘You’re Mine,’ For Cory Monteith (AUDIO)

Lea Michele has released a moving new song dedicated to her late boyfriend, Cory Monteith.

The “Glee” star said the song had been one of Monteith’s favorites before his death last year of a drug overdose at the age of 31.

On it, Michele sings:

And I told you all my dreams and fears
And you looked at me and your eyes filled with tears
And you said those three words I’d been waiting for
You became a part of me, yeah

“It makes me so happy, this song. It makes me think so much of Cory,” she told Elle in November. “It was ours. When I think of him, I play this.”

The song will be featured on Michele’s new album, “Louder,” which drops on March 4. But on Monday, she took to Twitter to tell fans they could listen to it now.

“Louder” also contains a song called “Cannonball” that Michele said helped her cope with Monteith’s death, MTV News reported last December. Another tune, “If You Say So,” refers to the last words she heard from him.

“It’s a very personal and it’s a very intense song for me,” she told MTV News.

Ironically, “You’re Mine” almost didn’t make the album. Michele told Elle that when the label asked if she wanted to add anything else to the album, she realized she had to include the song.

“I was like, ‘I might regret it if I don’t,'” she said.

Golden Globes Highlights: From Amy Poehler’s Win To Diane Keaton’s Song For Woody Allen

The 71st Golden Globe Awards featured many moments worth their weight in gold.

From Amy Poehler winning Best Actress for “Parks and Recreation” (after making out with Bono) to Emma Thompson walking out onstage with her high heels and martini in hand, the night was full of surprises and fun.

Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler owned the night. From their funny opening bit (“Tam Honks,” anyone?) to Poehler dressing up as Fey’s “son,” Randy, but it was Poehler who ended up being an actual winner. She took home the Best Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on “Parks and Recreation.”

In addition to love for Poehler, the Hollywood Foreign Press were obviously big fans of “Breaking Bad,” which won Best Drama Series and Best Actor in a Drama Series for Bryan Cranston.

There was a double surprise for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” in the TV Comedy categories when series star Andy Samberg won for Best Actor and the show itself won Best Comedy Series.

Some of the stranger highlights included Jacqueline Bisset’s perplexing acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Movie or Miniseries, and Diane Keaton ending her acceptance speech for Woody Allen’s Cecil B. DeMille Award by singing the Girl Scouts song, “Make New Friends (But Keep The Old).”

The Golden Globes continued with its annual tradition of having the stars let loose, giving the audience a show to remember — and plenty to talk about until next year.

A Two-Year-Old’s Surprisingly Satisfying Song Requests, From Rob Base To The Replacements

Before you have children, you hear a lot of horror stories, mostly from people who raised a kid forty years ago. There’s the standard stuff about never sleeping again, eating discarded, unappreciated food, and watching your home and possessions subject to random destruction and vandalism.

But the scariest thing for a music fan (and writer like myself) was the prospect of being inundated with corny kids’ songs ad nauseam.

Maybe my priorities were out of order but for a while there, it did seem as though I might lose my mind. Raffi rules and the Wiggles mean well but there’s only so much a man can take before he wants to take a trip to Belize. But then something special happened with my boy.

He turned into a complete sponge who wants to experience and appreciate everything we do. (Our most recent and likely fleeting victory has found him wanting to watch “Fantastic Mr. Fox” every day instead of “Team Umi Zoomi.”)

We’ve almost always sung to our son and one day early in his life, during our regular rotation of “Baby Beluga” and the ABCs, I snuck in Bob Dylan’s “The Man in Me.” I remember him staring at me, captivated by the flurry of new words housed in this foreign melody. When I finished singing the last “la la las,” he said nothing.

And then, quietly, “Again.”

Ever since, I’ve fearlessly sung or played my boy almost whatever was on my mind and when something elicits a coveted “Again,” he hears it again and again. The following is a list of songs my two-and-a-half-year-old requests the most.

In virtually every case, we’ve discovered that he knows all of the words and will just randomly begin singing each one when the mood strikes. There are some dark, lusty songs here but everything seems fun and innocent when rendered by a toddler.

‘Bob’s Burgers’ Presents New Thanksgiving Song, ‘Gravy Boat’

There aren’t enough Thanksgiving songs in the world, and that’s why we’re shining a spotlight on Gene, Linda and Gayle’s addition to that limited selection. On the Thanksgiving episode of “Bob’s Burgers,” the sisters took a moment before the turkey was cut to regale the assembled family and friends with “Gravy Boat” — with Gene providing the musical accompaniment.

What starts off as fairly cute and innocuous quickly takes a turn toward the weird — much like most episodes of “Bob’s Burgers.” Unfortunately, Bob fell asleep, interrupting the song. But here’s what we got:

A ding, a ding, a-what’s that sound?
It’s the gravy boat a-comin’ around
It’s not a Navy boat, it’s the gravy boat
Filled with bravery, savory, sailor folk

Sailors in your mouth
Sailors in your mouth

Now it’s stuck in your head and you’ll find yourself hoping they get to continue this masterpiece next Thanksgiving.

“Bob’s Burgers” airs Sundays at 8:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
