Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepson has never quite matched the huge success of 2011's Call Me Maybe, but this one, from the film Ballerina (Leap! in the U.S.) is her best one since.  Check out the pop sugary Cut to the Feeling...

Pride Weekend Song of the Day - Same Love - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, feat. Mary Lambert

Image result for pride day

Although there is plenty not to love about going into NYC for the Pride Parade...huge crowds, the heat, tired feet...I always feel a certain invisible pull, something that makes me want to be a part of it because there is something special about being there.  I was there when New York State legalized same sex marriage, and again when it became the law of the land, but this year I am unfortunately committed to festivities at school which prevent me from going.  This song has become an anthem for the movement over the last few years, from a straight ally who puts it all so succinctly and with no b.s., just truth.  So for whatever it's worth, Happy Pride Day everyone!  Check out Same Love...

It is Pride Weekend in New York City and what better to get things started off with a wonderfully gay video of an oh so humorously metaphoric tune by Ms. Katy Perry.  I've posted this video before.  It's by a fellow named Ryan James Yezak and it's absolutely mesmerizing and fun to watch.  Check it out...

Hump Day Song of the Day - Bellyache - Billie Elish

Mike Wass of Idolator called it a "sinister synth-anthem that positively seethes fury and frustration". That may very well be true, but to me it's the sensuality of Elish's song that gets me, and thus it's a great choice for a Hump Day Song of the Day. Check out Bellyache...

Katy Perry is back and she is on fire!  Already on her third stellar single off the new record Witness, this one is hot.  I was at a club in Philly the other night and everybody was jammin' to it.  Here's a recent performance of the tune on SNL, sans Nicki Minaj sadly.  Cool anyway!  Check it out...
