As the year comes to a close, it’s time to reflect upon the things that made 2014 great. Of course, each year brings on a slew of videos that dominate the¬†Internet for what¬†seems like an eternity, and this year is no different.

WATCH: A Nerdy Girl Seeks Her Own David Tennant

Amy Lee-Radigan, singer/songwriter and self-described “nerdy girl,” is seeking some geek affection. In the video for her song, “Nerdy Girls Need Love Too” (via Buzzfeed), she straps on her acoustic guitar and compares her ideal suitor to numerous comic book and sci-fi figures. But it seems her heart most belongs to The Doctor, the hero […]

Some Anglo For Your Ear: Dubstar’s “Stars”

This swoony, breathy piece of Britpop was only a medium hit for British band Dubstar in the mid-’90s. But if you enjoy Portishead or Gabrielle, you’ll like this one. I first heard it on an episode of This Life so it has to be cool, right?

Anglo Earbug: Bee Gees’ “Too Much Heaven”

I don’t know if it’s a delayed reaction to Barry Gibb week on American Idol, but the Bee Gees‘ 1979 hit, “Too Much Heaven” – quavering falsettos and all – has been stuck in my head for days now. I’ve made it my mission to pass this earbug on to as many people as possible. […]

London 2012 Olympics Logo a No-Go?

There’s a brouhaha brewing over the recently unveiled logo for London’s 2012 Olympics. Even though it was very expensive to design (the project is equivalent to $800,000), people don’t seem to like it very much, and, apparently, it literally causes seizures and migraine headaches by just looking at it. Well, to be more specific, viewers […]

For Your Own Good: The Top 10 Pet Shop Boys Songs

It’s been a while since I did a top 10 list: PSB’s synthy sound made them hitmakers in the ’80s, but as hip-hop and grunge swelled in the ’90s, they settled into cult/club hero status. No matter, a lot of their best work came after Neil Tennant began to sprout grey hair. He and “brawny” […]

British Band You Should Know: McFly

There’s been one song that’s been playing on my iPod for the past week: “Transylvania” by British band McFly. It’s a proper rock opera, complete with a tongue-in-cheek storyline about historic love, a harpsichord intro, falsetto harmonies, a Beatlesesque bridge, and yes, even a roundelay ending. On a pure hook-per-minute scale, it’s somewhere around Cheap […]

Russell Brand Has Lots of Sex. Really, He Does.

Comedian and “sexual terrorist” Russell Brand – who hosts this weekend’s BRIT Awards – lets it rip in his pre-recorded acceptance speech for his Broadcasting Press Guild award. “I just want you people to know, who criticize me, that it is underscored by the knowledge that I am having an awful lot of sex. I […]

Brett Anderson Is Open For a Suede Reunion

Former Suede frontman Brett Anderson talks to the BBC about why he decided to put out a solo record. He says he wanted to grow "musically and socially." He continues: "The part about being in a band that had become tiring and repetitive for me was having your life mapped out for you, and this […]
