The Knack

The Knack‘s driving power pop tune number one smash “My Sharona” celebrated its 40th anniversary recently, without nary a pomp and definitely no circumstance.

But make no mistake, to be in the summer of 1979 back then, there was nothing bigger on radio or arguably on the music scene at the time than The Knack, with their brash unapologetic attitude, and a sexism in their music that would be all but forbidden if released today. By 1979 punk music was starting to ebb in terms of curiosity and shock value and the later named “yacht rock” was beginning to bubble up, evident in bands like Ambrosia and the solo works of Kenny Loggins and Christopher Cross, all with a sonic kind of pullover sweater over the speakers sound to it and all beginning at the end of the 1970s.

Great Philly Comic-Con 2019: Welcome To My Nerdmare With Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper panel

The Great Philadelphia Comic-Con was a place for geeks of all sorts. Living up to their motto, “Get Ur Geek On,” the con had guests covering all genres of the entertainment world including horror, sci-fi, animation, video games, cosplay and music. Fitting in perfectly amongst the multiverse of geekdom is Alice Cooper, a genuine rock icon going on fifty years in the business. Along with his near 30 albums and countless hits, Cooper is also a bonafide crossover star. The rocker, now 71 years old, earned a bevy of younger fans when he appeared on the Muppet Show in 1978. He appeared multiple times on Johnny Carson, before making a scene-stealing appearance in 1992’s Wayne’s World. It was there I first heard his music and I was hypnotized. He currently has two tours going: one with his main band and another with the Hollywood Vampires, a supergroup along with Johnny Depp, Joe Perry, and members of Guns n’ Roses. On Saturday afternoon, April 13th, Cooper had a Q&A panel, entitled “Welcome to my Nerdmare,” answering questions about his career in music and entertainment.

Strolling out to shouts of “We’re not worthy,” Cooper certainly still controls a room. The moderator jumped right in with questions, and then we got to ask one too.

Taron Egerton and Elton John

The Elton John musical fantasy biopic Rocketman is set to hit theaters this May. Taron Egerton will play the iconic musician, whose music has garnered millions of fans around the world. And while we have seen his musical talents on display in only a few films and the two Rocketman trailers and one featurette, we have yet to get the full effect of his take on Elton John. Until now.

During Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party (the awards were held last night), both John and Egerton took to the stage to sing “Tiny Dancer,” and it made for not only an impressive performance, but something that should prove to everyone that the actor was the right person to portray the singer. Check out the video here below.

Grammys 2019

The Grammys were held on Sunday night, February 10, 2019, and were hosted this time around by 15-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Alicia Keys, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with the live broadcast on CBS.

Below are some of the highlights and clips from the broadcast of The 61th Annual Grammy Awards, along with the full list of Grammy winners at the end.

Having Keys host this year was a major change in tone from the previous two years, which were led by comedian and late-night talk-show host James Corden. Instead of comedy throughout, Keys focused on highlighting the talent and careers of the presenters, nominees, winners, and performers.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part "Catchy Song"

It’s almost impossible to top The LEGO Movie‘s great song “Everything Is Awesome.” While it may have lost the chance to win an Academy Award, it definitely left behind a legacy for being a very upbeat, cheery, and unforgettable tune. It wouldn’t be much of a LEGO Movie without that signature song. So they will try to up things in the sequel The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part with a song titled “Catchy Song,” which includes lyrics like “This song’s gonna get stuck inside your head.”

The full song from the cast and Dillon Francis featuring T-Pain and That Girl Lay Lay has now been shared online along with a brief featurette about the song. Check them out below.

‘Ralph Breaks The Internet’ Video: Watch Vanellope Sing “A Place Called Slaughter Race” In Its Entirety

A Place Called Slaughter from Ralph Breaks The Internet

Among one of the best things about Ralph Breaks The Internet is when Princess Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) sings “A Place Called Slaughter Race.” It is a hilarious satire on Disney songs where a princess has their own musical moments and expresses their search for what they truly desire through song. The self-deprecating sequence pokes fun at how these princesses break into song spontaneously and is set against the grimy and deadly world of the racing game Slaughter Race.

Now fans of that song can now experience it in all its fun and silly glory with the newly released “A Place Called Slaughter Race” music video. Check it out below.
