Nicki Minaj samples Annie Lennox No more I love yous in the the song Your Love and the vid features kunoichi, female ninja, being trained by a samurai.  Another girl falls for the same samurai and then there’s a huge fight. It features plenty of Japanese inspired clothing.  I think the vids really awesome and I like the song.

Neyo’s Beautiful Monster has a really good vid considering the song is only mostly ok.  It has a video gamish beat that’s really catchy but the lyrics and singing kind of throw me off. Well really just the way he says “Beautiful Monster” but I do like the song more or less.  For the Vid Neyo was definitely watching Smooth Criminal  and maybe a little anime since he does energy attacks.

Enrique Iglesias’  song I like it has a little Lionel Richie All Night Long (all night) in it.  And when I hear this song I just want to party and dance.

What do you think about these songs and vids?

Hitchcock and Russian Roulette

What’s with the use of Alfred Hitchcock in songs recently.  Pitbull mentions him in Oche Calle.  But for him he wants to make a film and you know the kind I mean.  Lady gaga makes clear refences to Hitchcock’s movies in Bad Romance with “I want your psycho, your vertigo stick, want you in my rear window,” which she explains in her Alexa Chung interview as wanting someone to the point that your willing to accept even the deepest darkest parts of them and of course its a Hitchcock shoutout.

Russian Roulette’s making its rounds in songs as well.  But so far its hit and miss.  Lady Gaga says “Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun” in Pokerface.  And Rihanna’s got a new song called Russian Roulette, but so far I’ve heard at least as many complaints as praises about the song.

Like any of these songs?

Mash-ups and remixes are spectacularly crazy and much of the time people are doing them in their own homes and getting them out to the people via youtube.  Sometimes the remix is even better than the original.  It’s not just professional djs anymore not that the pros are slacking.  Here are some of my favs pros and not.

Robin Skouteris  Madonna VS Lady Gaga VS Pitbull, Robin Skouteris VS Nirvana, Cyndi Lauper VS Missy Elliott 

LMFAO  Love LockDown Remix, Shooting Star  I think both are better than the original
