This is my favorite song by my all-time favorite band.  And some blessed soul took the time to assemble a super rad montage for it.  If you love VH, watch this.  And if you don’t love VH… watch this.  Maybe it’ll cure whatever serious disorder you’re obviously suffering from.    

I’m takin’ whiskey to the party tonight
And I’m lookin’ for somebody to squeeze
I ain’t lookin’ for somebody to fight
Baby don’t get uptight, baby please…

Here’s a fresh playlist with some hot new tracks in our North Star Media catalogue. Now, understand, you don’t have to crank the volume.  But in the words of that Dazed and Confused parking lot prophet Wooderson, "It’d be a lot cooler if you did."  

Peace.  Love.  Rock.  Eternal.

I like the ambition of making pop. Underground music gets all the respect and critical acclaim, yet the stuff which sells shitloads of records doesn’t. It’s the challenge of writing music that’s quality, but is also pop, that I want to take on ( … ) There are too many underground records! I’m sick of people saying: ‘That record was so great’ and yet it only sells 4,000 copies. I don’t see what’s cool about not writing hooks: if you’re really f*@king clever, where’s the f*@king melody that I can remember? I woke up today and I forgot your whole album – genius! I don’t get it.

La Roux’s Elly Jackson tells Time Out Magazine. Hail to the pop! (via arjanwrites)

Really well put by Elly Jackson here.  Admittedly, there’s a good deal of music considered “underground” that I dig.  But I’m also one to stand up and defend the power and majesty of full-on, mainstream, unapologetically pop music.  What can I say?  I like melody.  I like big choruses that smack you ‘cross the face and knock you on your ass.  I like music that makes you feel good.  And more often than not, this is the kinda stuff that pop music brings to the party. -  J.A.S.
