Face The Music: 10 Great Face Songs
Over the years, it’s amazing how many songs that have been written and became hits that share commonly used words in within their titles. Love may be oversaturated and cliché, but doesn’t society relate and embrace such songs featuring the word and central theme? Think of the colors and how many times they’ve fueled music’s flavor of the month/year throughout history. As simple as a commonly used word may be, it can be the catalyst for truly great music. In the case of this list, here are 10 great face songs. Why? – because all of the songs use the word face within their title. See, it’s as...

Playing The Blame Game: 15 Songs That Point The Finger
Sigh, doesn’t it always seem like we as a society are ready to blame something or somebody for something? If we feel bad when we wake up, we blame it on our boss for being, um, an inappropriate word (your choice of course). If we all can’t seem to “love again,” it’s that bleeping ex that ruined love. If we’re Democrats, we blame Republicans or visa versa. Basically, there’s always blame to be shared.

This list features a jam-packed 15 songs that blame something or someone for certain circumstances. If for some reason you don’t invest your time into these songs, well YOU’RE TO B! Don’t be ...

The Neighbourhood Steps Up Its Game In 'Wiped Out'

The Neighbourhood Deliver An Enigmatic Sophomore Album With ‘Wip
Sometimes, a band’s career can get off to a rocky start. That was the case for alternative band The Neighbourhood, who arrived in 2013 with debut album I Love You. I Love You was by no means a success, earning a tepid score of 48 on critic aggregate site Metacritic and peaking at a modest #25 on the Billboard 200. It’s biggest redeeming quality? "Sweater Weather," a single worth the listen and leaving the door of better things to come. Now releasing sophomore album Wiped Out!, has The Neighbourhood perfected their craft? Definitely.

Wiped Out! kicks off with a 30-second intro “A Moment ...

5 Seconds Of Summer Bests Carrie Underwood

5 Seconds Of Summer Bests Carrie Underwood For No. 1 On Billboar
On the Billboard 200 this week, it was youth that prevailed in a race for the number one spot. In the end, Aussie band 5 Seconds of Summer scored atop the Billboard 200 for a second consecutive time with Sounds Good Feels Good. While Sounds Good Feels Good was unable to top the numbers put up by their 2014 self-titled debut album, the 192,000 units easily trumped the more modest numbers put up by Pentatonix’s chart-topping album last week. Of those 192,000 units, 93% were pure sales.

As disappointing as it may be for the once unstoppable Carrie Underwood to be beat for the top spot, Unde...

‘We Love Disney’ And More Albums To Check Out This Week

‘We Love Disney’ Leads Albums To Check Out This Week
Following a notable music release week that featured 5 Seconds of Summer and Carrie Underwood, this week is quite tame in the big-time release department. Just how tame is Friday, October 30? Underwhelming tameness to say the least! November’s release weeks are chocked full of highly anticipated efforts, so the question is, why not distribute some of that wealth to this week? While nothing seems positioned to pack a mighty punch, maybe the inner-child will come out and the love of Disney – specifically We Love Disney – will “tickle your fancy.”

Pentatonix Takes The No. 1 Spot On Billboard

10/27/2015 9:38am EDT
Pentatonix Edges Demi Lovato For No. 1 On The Billboard 200
It was a close fight on the Billboard 200 this week – a slugfest – but a cappella darlings Pentatonix came out on top, barely. The self-titled Pentatonix moved 98,000 units, with 90% of those being pure sales. Demi Lovato also moved 98,000 units, though only 79% of those units were pure sales. Neither album ‘blew it out of the park’ with both missing the magical 100,000 units/copies mark, but the numbers are respectable given the current poor sales climate for music.

Examining the sales another way, both Pentatonix and Demi Lovato outperformed new releases by Machine Gun Kelly and The G...
