    So I might accidentally be the only person completely disinterested in the original “Suit & Tie.” It’s not that I don’t like it, I just nothing it. It’s like this whole Molly craze that’s going on right now, I totally get that a ton of people are into it but it’s doing absolutely nothing for me and I don’t want to force myself to try it. But then, THIS. A Four Tet remix fell out of the internet and into my lap, and I couldn’t be happier.

    JT’s chorus has been placed over some cool drums, and his angelic voice is manipulated into a whole bunch of nonsense words to form the beat of the song. The whole thing is very chill and pleasant to the ears.  If you’re not that into the original song like me, but you like things that are good, you’ll probably enjoy this. If not, just look at the picture of Justin above.  How could you say no to that face? You CAN’T. YOU CAN’T SAY NO.

    So I apologize for my lack of posting over the last few months, I had a really busy summer (sleeping). With so many commitments (sleeping) and fun stuff to do (sleeping), I was hardly near (sleep) a computer (sleeping)! But I hope you all had a great summer.

    Dear readers, I have absolutely no clue where you are. But seeing as I am in <undisclosed>, it’s a pretty dreary day. And dreary days  mean one thing: crying about my uncertainty of the future. Okay, wait, and one more thing: blues rock.  It’s quite handy that this awesome remix was released for my listening pleasure, as The Black Keys are the essence of blues rock. While this remix of “I Got Mine” was originally created a while back, it was finally released to give the song a fun and fresh sound.  While vocals remain the same, this remix has plenty of “bneeersss” and catchy drum beats. I don’t know what prompted the leak of this fantastic track to the internet, but I’m glad it happened!  And I hope my roomates are glad too, because I’ve played it at least a million times.

    Sometimes, you just gotta sit down and listen to some country music.  This isn’t one of those times.  Right now, you just gotta get up and “dance” (flail around) to this catchy new remix!

    “Secret Lover” is the only song available by That Work at the current time, and I hadn’t given the song a listen until this mix appeared in my life.  It came upon me like a random Facebook friend request: even though I had no idea who it was at first, I soon realized that they were more familiar than I thought and totally awesome. “Secret Lover” has this great appeal that reminds me of many other dance-pop songs while remaining unique and memorable.  The keyboard beat and dance-y hooks keep pushing me back to the replay button!  These guys (or guy, I still have no idea) got lucky that I absolutely love their one song in existence. They would have gotten it if I didn’t. And by “gotten it” I mean gotten another chance to do better next time, because who am I kidding this song is fantastic.

    So Kimbra’s hit song “Settle Down” is basically about how much she wants to start a family and get married, live a classy monogamous life and all that.  This is an interesting topic to remix, because electronic remixes typically say “I want to wake up very naked in a strange van.”  But hey, lyrical content doesn’t even phase me in this super dancy and memorable reworking.  While keeping most of the vocals intact, Feature Cuts manages to transform this soulful song into something much more booty-shakeable.  I like it so much, I even sing along to the pure gibberish parts! Do you know how hard that is?! Listen to this song. Do it for me. Do it for Kimbra. But mostly me.

    Okay so this may or may not be the billionth time that “Call Me Maybe” was covered on TheJillboard.com, but who’s counting? Me, a little bit, but whatever!

    I’ll admit, it took me slightly longer than the rest of the world to get into this song. Unlike everyone else who loved it instantly, I resisted a total of two hours before giving in to its greatness, which I’m still pretty proud of.  Once I did give in, it was aaaall over. Jepsen’s oddly catchy hit is still the background noise to all of my thoughts; even when I think I found a new song to head-dance to, it somehow manages to creep its way back into my mind.

    I listened to remix after remix, but then this happened. Lead singer Nate Ruess’ angelic voice blessed the ears of us undeserving mortals with the most perfect cover since Jeff Buckley’s rendition of “Hallelujah”.  Yup. If you loved the song before, you’re gonna go absolutely insane over this version. If you didn’t love this song before, you’re gonna go absolutely insane over this version.  Nate could sing “Boom Boom Pow” and make it sound like actual coherent music, so you REALLY have to give this cover a chance whether you like the song or not.  It’s just so… beautiful. Enjoy!
