George Michael’s “Last Christmas” Has Been Released In 4K Video And We Need To Discuss

Published

on

As part of a new remastering of Wham!’s holiday song “Last Christmas” the music video has been re-released in High Def glory, and it totally takes you back to 1984.

The 80’s were a time when not all music videos were all that groundbreaking, and directors didn’t always feel compelled to really tell an in depth story. This is no exception. In the video, a gang of friends go on a ski trip and George is eyeing his bandmate’s girlfriend.  (She has her eye on him too.) That’s it. They basically eat and decorate the tree and have a snowball fight and very little happens. It’s as if someone just said, “I rented a cabin in Stowe, let’s make a music video doing whatever.” There’s little to no connection in the story to the lyrics of the song, which is weird, but not all that uncommon for the time. The best part is watching how the hairstyles and outfits, in full 4K HD, seem as if they were shot just this year. It’s like watching Stranger Things – when they recreate that era. But this is the real deal, with George Michael, who was still in the closet at the time, in heavy makeup (heavy on the blush!) and full blown out blond, highlighted hair. But with that voice and those looks, it’s no surprise he was the ‘it’ pop star of the decade. The hair cuts and styles of the women are not to be believed. Somehow at the time we all went along with these styles as though it was amazing. What on earth were we thinking.

The video has been viewed nearly 8 million times since it was put on YouTube just over a week ago. The original version has been viewed more than 485 million times since it was published online in 2009.

Enjoy!

Washing your hands is something we should all doo doo doo doo doo.

Back before we were afraid of what infectious germs might be crawling on our hands there was a dance craze that swept the nation. The “Baby Shark” phenomenon, which had dancers recreating different sharks with their hands, grew wildly popular in 2019, racking up over 5 billion views on YouTube and even reached number 32 on the Billboard Hot 100. While the catchy, little ear worm is definitely hard to un-hear, the latest coronavirus-related rendition is using it’s memorable lyrics to emphasize the importance of hand washing. That’s right, PinkFong has just released an appropriately-timed sequel entitled “Wash Your Hands.”

The song is meant to encourage children to wash their hands, which in the midst of this pandemic could not be more important. The updated lyrics are a perfect step by step guide for little fishies everywhere:

“Grab some soap, doo doo doo doo doo”

“Rub your hands, doo doo doo doo doo”

“Rinse your hands, doo doo doo doo doo.”

“Cover your sneeze, doo doo doo doo doo”

“Cough into your elbow, doo doo doo doo doo.”

While I am sure I will have this tune stuck in my head until quarantine is up, it is nice to see creative solutions for some troubling issues. Take a listen to the song below and WASH YOUR HANDS!

JoJo Remixes Hit Song To Warn You To “Chill (Stay In)”

Published

on

Sure we all are itching to leave (get out) of our houses right now but pop singer JoJo reminds us why that isn’t a good idea.

In 2004 you couldn’t turn on the radio or listen to your friend’s illegally download playlist without hearing JoJo’s angst-filled lyrics about a romance gone south. That’s right, “Leave (Get Out)” was the pop single that swept the nation and skyrocketed JoJo’s career. Well during these times of social distancing and self-quarantining the pop singer has changed her tune. JoJo tik-took to Tik Tok to release an updated version of her big hit now entitled “Chill (Stay In).

The fun remix contains new lyrics urging fans to stay indoors and away from others amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She sings “I never thought corona could be such a nasty bitch. But now that she’s here boy all I want is for you use common sense. Stay in (no!) right now, do it for humanity!”

The 1-minute snippet is just a tease according to JoJo, who promises a full version to be available for streaming sometime soon. You’ll remember this isn’t the first time the pop star has re-recorded her music. After her initial rise to fame, JoJo made it clear that she was not exactly happy with the sound of her early music. On her 28th birthday in 2018 she announced the re-release of her debut and sophomore albums with all new re-recorded vocals and production to reflect her more authentic vibe.

VIDEO: “Quarantine With Me” Is The Perfect Song For Social Distancing

Published

on

“You can put your hand in mine…once you washed it for the recommended 20 seconds time” is just the first line of this comically informative, coronavirus-themed ballad.

They say “necessity is the mother of invention.” Well, you may not have known you needed a coronavirus-themed ballad but once you hear it, your quarantine will never be the same.  David Sikabwe, a 22-year-old student at UT Austin, took to Twitter to give a little corona-concert with a charming song he wrote entitled “Quarantine With Me.” The song is oddly beautiful while still chock filled with good information about staying healthy during the global pandemic.

When speaking with Mashable, Sikabwe said the reasoning behind writing the song was sort of random:

“The song was really just a random idea I had. There are a lot of songs written about staying home with someone you care about like ‘Nothing’ by Bruno Mars an ‘Do You Wanna Do Nothing with Me’ by Lawrence. I figured that sentiment had a special significance with the looming specter of this disease.”

Hope this song helps bring some levity to your quarantine. Be sure to share with friends…FROM A SAFE DISTANCE!
