(PG-13: Lyrics) We’re not sure how he managed to pull it off this time – but mashup master DJ Cummerbund managed to combine Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance with Somebody with Mumford and Sons’ Little Lion Man, and a dash of Kesha’s TiK ToK so the party don’t stop.

Like many of us, Puddles Pity Party has the occasional bad day. The sad clown with the golden voice works out his stress with a little pie, some cupcakes, and a impassioned cover smoosh-up of Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure, and Let It Go from Disney’s Frozen.
Actor, comedian, writer, and musician Steve Martin is joined by the talented members of the Steep Canyon Rangers for a captivating four-song set of country and bluegrass melodies in NPR’s amazing and personal concert venue. The tracks are all from The Long Awaited Album.
It’s been a rough week, and the loss of one of rock and roll’s greatest makes us even sadder. Let us celebrate the life and talent of Tom Petty through some of his many hit songs, then say farewell with his cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, accompanied by Prince.
The Warp Zone celebrates Star Trek: Discovery with a fun medley of themes from The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. Though we really wanted to hear the lyric “It’s been a long road, getting from there to here…“
Musician “The Little Strummer Boy” and vocalist pal Kurt Grunsky performed a great cover version of R.E.M.’s 1991 hit Losing My Religion with a twangy country/bluegrass vibe. We always pictured this song with being played on the banjo for some reason.
The 2001 Archie spinoff film Josie and the Pussycats was too smart for its time (and for how it was promoted). But the band’s catchy original songs are some of the better fruits of the mostly regrettable pop punk era. Now you can get them on vinyl thanks to Mondo.
Musician Nigel Stanford is accompanied by a roomful of KUKA industrial robots in the video for his dynamic electronic track Automatica. The robot arms play guitar, keyboard, bass, drums, and of course wield deadly lasers. The brief behind the scenes video is worth a watch too.
(PG-13: Language) From Migos to Chance the Rapper, the triplet flow has defined 2010’s rap. Vox looked at the flow’s origins and how it works. We think they missed Snoop’s point though. It’s overuse combined with mumbling that makes for a homogenous sound.
Jason Tang spent about a month arranging elements in the game Kinacoustic to perform a medley of tunes from Ori and the Blind Forest, arranged by pianist ThePandaTooth. The resulting video is as fascinating to watch as it is to listen to. Download the file here.
We were really wondering how director Max Ksjonda created the mindblowing visuals in his clip Samoliot for the group 5’Nizza. Well, now we have the answer – it was mostly done in camera, with amazing prop work and rigging which was later cleaned up in post-production.
Musician Costantino Carrara takes Queen’s iconic 1975 rock opera track and turns it into an equally impressive classical piano piece, packed with wonderful flourishes, and epic transitions. Think you can keep up with Costantino’s fingers? Buy the sheet music here.
