I have a problem. I spent the past few weeks scouring gift guides in hopes of stumbling into something that I could buy. The problematic part is that I don’t need anything. And yet, I kept looking and looking and looking. It’s because I’m dumb and stupid and want to buy stuff because that’s what the holiday season…
These guys took a bunch of images from different peaks of Los Andes—the longest continental mountain range in the world located in the western coast of South America—drew a staff over them, and marked the peaks as notes. An orchestra played this random composition and the result is surprisingly beautiful.
Are you sick of love songs that use scientifically inaccurate metaphors to describe romance? Well, sit down, pop in your ear buds, and listen to these two fellows croon about love in terms of covalent bonds, pH, and genetic mutations.
Being a Queen fan since I was little kid, I had my doubts about anyone covering 20 Queen songs in one single 60-second song and making any sense. I stand corrected: This medley is brilliant, smoothly morphing one song into each other while keeping every single hit recognizable.
Here's the official music video for Pharrell Williams' latest single "It Girl". It's a visual trip that combines lovely anime and nostalgia inducing 8-bit video games with the always colorful imagination of artist Takashi Murakami. It's not so much a music video as it is moving art.
It was really only a matter of time before someone paired Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor with Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes in a musical number filled with lyrical one-upmanship. The duo agrees that they should team up, but which of them will be the assistant?
Ridiculousness. Hilarity. So many laughs and chortles and comedic gold bars appear that I can't help but keep watching. It's brilliant, really. Malinda Kathleen Reese took the lyrics from Frozen's Let it Go by Idina Menzel through Chinese, Macedonian, French, Polish, Creole and a whole bunch of other languages and…
What happens when you mix Star Wars cosplayers with Queen's classic opus and add in a brand new set of lyrics? Anyway the Force flows...
This past week, comic book writer Alan Moore turned 60, and in his honor, songwriter and cartoonist Jeffrey Lewis set Moore's biography to pictures and music.
Paris Hilton has recorded a song with Lil Wayne and, as expected, it sounds like shit. Listen to this embarrassing music terrorist act coupled with a pathetic video of morons partying. "And I may be a bit tipsy, but that's ok 'cause you're with me." Kill it with fire.
How will Breaking Bad end? We don't know, but the Key of Awesome has plenty of insane theories, and they're singing all about them.
If you use Tumblr or Facebook or Twitter or any site like that, you'd know that they're all complete time sucks. Hopping onto Tumblr is especially dangerous because of all the rabbit holes you can crawl into—food, tasteful nudes, fashion, tasteful nudes, animated gifs, tasteful nudes, virally reblogged reblogs and…
You might not know it, but the melody from Happy Birthday To You is actually copyrighted, owned by Time Warner, and won't enter the public domain until 2030 at the earliest. That's why the Free Music Archive set out to find an alternative—and this is officially the best choice.
Dear US Government, please, for the love of all that is good and sacred and covered with bolognese sauce, please drop your case against Kim Dotcom. Let him get back to his naff life of food and lewd. Perhaps that way he would stop releasing songs of mass destruction like his new single: Mr. President. Just listen to…
Set to the tune of Don McLean's American Pie, Karen Chang sang an epic song announcing her resignation from Microsoft that included quips about making "cells and numbers dance", "long lines of code" and where she's going next. Everyone who resigns from their job should be forced to do a song and dance number like…
If you've ever seen a common domestic mouse, your first thought probably wasn't, "You know, I bet that guy has an amazing singing voice." But it turns out male house mice are rodent crooners, singing ultrasonic love songs to woo females.
What if I told you that you could be a singer if you just spoke into an app. Seriously, that's all you have to do with Songify. The app autotunes your voice and stitches it against a song. YOU SOUND AWESOME.
There's nothing like a good theme song to give a memorable moment some emotional oomph. It's only fitting that tomorrows Space Shuttle launch has its own composition created by Bear McCreary, the man behind the Battlestar Galactica theme.
What do the X-Men and Lady Gaga have in common besides extravagant fashion tastes? As Magneto notes in this X-Men: The First Class-inspired song parody, they were both "Born This Way." [via Neatorama]
