10 Most Overplayed Songs From This Decade
"Oh no, that song's on again?" If that how you feel when certain tunes come on the radio and you can't run fast enough to turn them off, congratulations; you have more than likely experienced one of the 10 most overplayed songs from this decade. From Katy Perry to Robin Thicke, some songs are great the first time you hear them, okay by the tenth play, but when you've heard that song for the hundredth time you would rather sit in silence! These 10 most overplayed songs certainly get in your head if not, under your skin!

Music Review: 'Hawaii Five-O' Soundtrack

October 10th, 2011 2:15pm EDT
Hawaii Five-O
TV soundtracks can be ways to discover new music, or just for a studio to cash in on a hot property. CBS Music's Hawaii Five-O: Original Songs From The Television Series is a bit of both.

It wouldn't be the first time that a soundtrack has come out for sheer merchandising purposes. There are a lot of those, where songs clearly end up in a TV show just to push a single or so that a CD can be made up later. Heck, even some of the soundtracks that come out after a season aren't very good.

Hawaii Five-O's disc curiously takes the opposite tack from most soundtracks: the CD is billed on Amaz...

'Up All Night' Recap: Cool Neighbors

September 22nd, 2011 12:00pm EDT
Up All Night
In last week’s review of the charming but average “Up All Night” pilot, I assured everyone that “the big laughs will come soon enough.” So, is the second episode soon enough for you?

“Cool Neighbors” cleverly examines the question that eventually plagues every thirtysomething: “When did I stop being cool?” The episode works so well because when we all point and laugh at the Brinkleys’ uncoolness, there are three fingers pointing right back at us, reminding us that it’s probably well past time we take that Mighty Mighty Bosstones cassette out of our tape decks and finally download the War...

Janet Jackson & Lady Antebellum Switch Indiana State Fair Venues After Tragedy

August 15th, 2011 9:59pm EDT
Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson and country trio Lady Antebellum have relocated their upcoming Indiana State Fair shows following Saturday's stage collapse disaster.

Five people were killed when storms brought the massive structure and lighting rig crashing down before Saturday's Sugarland set - and 45 other music fans were left injured.

The fair re-opened on Monday with a memorial to the victims of the tragedy and Jackson will continue the musical portion of the event on Wednesday - but at another venue. Full details have yet to be confirmed.

Maroon 5 and Train and Lady Antebellum are also scheduled to p...

Armchair Musician: "The Voice," Week Ten

June 30th, 2011 9:25am EDT
The Voice
Two and a half months later, my journey with The Voice has come to an end. I'm sad to walk away, but I'm also overjoyed (and grateful) to have gone out on top.

Everyone wants to finish on a high note, and this show certainly did that, for the most part. The final performance show saw the four finalists duet with their coaches - a move which signified their having flourished over the course of the competition and become equals. Dia Frampton and Blake Shelton were certainly having a great time performing Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down," complete with Blues Brothers-esque black suits a...

Javier Colon and Carson Daily on The Voice
NBC's The Voice has crowned its first winner! After a heated 10-week competition, the fate of the four finalists - Dia Frampton, Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez and Javier Colon - was in the hands of TV viewers for the last time, with the top two finalists - Dia and Javier separated by only 2 percent of the final vote, according to host Carson Daly; but it was Connecticut native Colon who took the prize - $100,000 and a recording contract with Universal Republic.

"Wow. Thank you. I don't even know where to begin other than to say that the three women behind here are absolutely awesome," ...

Don't Cry For 'Glee'... When It's This Good!

December 1st, 2010 3:14pm EST
Glee
For sectionals this year, Will is determined to prove how self-aware ‘Glee’ can be. Critics concerned about how overexposed Lea Michele is and how underutilized Heather Morris is, Will has got your back. Folks, who would be happy listening to Lea Michele sing the phone book every week, Santana’s going to taunt you with “Yentl” references and torture Rachel with revelations on the true status of Finn’s virginity. (For those who missed it, Santana took it in the middle of a wonderfully entertaining tribute to Madonna.)

The news doesn’t exactly help boost morale for the glee club, although it...

Atlantic recording artist Jason Castro has unveiled details of his much-anticipated debut LP. "Jason Castro" arrives in stores and at all online retailers on April 13th.

The self-titled album will be preceded by the new single, "That's What I'm Here For." The track hit Hot AC radio outlets nationwide on March 8th.

Don't call it a simple return. Call it a metamorphosis, a deep progression, an inspired evolution or - perhaps most fitting - a rewarding exercise in self-actualization. Stepping into his own in order to connect to his heart and artistic vision, Graham Colton has emerged with a stunning collection of pop-rock melodies, lyrics and emotions in 12 tracks that swing between love and hear...

2006: Year In Music (Pt. 1)

December 31st, 2006 12:00pm EST
Arctic Monkeys
From Arctic Monkeys to Zutons to Britney's divorce to the most overplayed song of the year (hint: it's not James Blunt's You're Beautiful), 2006 was unmatched in musical diversity. There were albums we didn't even realize came out and artists we didn't even realize were still around. There were reunions and breakups too. Here's a brief summary of 2006: The Year in Music...

The new year kicked off somewhat quietly; however, it was the debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, from the Arctic Monkeys, the band that U.S. critics bashed despite storming to the top of the...
