Perfect summer mash-up! Put on the sunscreen, grab your hottest beach outfit, and blast this one. You’ve got some 70′s Disco (KC and The Sunshine Band and Chic), 80′s Nostalgia (prepare to be Rick-rolled plus Madonna’s “Holiday and “Last Night A DJ Saved My Life”), all mixed with today’s hottest hits by Daft Punk and Justin Timberlake. Robin is making the song available free for downloading at https://soundcloud.com/robinskouteris/getfunky Robin’s been one of the leading mash-up DJ’s for the past few years, check out some of his other incredible mixes including “L.O.V.E”  and “Moonlight Hotel” featured on Mike’s Daily Jukebox.

“FAT BOTTOMED GIRLS COME TOGETHER” Queen and The Beatles Mash-up
Imagine in the 70′s if John Lennon could have recorded a song with Queen. We know John loved performing Elton John, David Bowie, and other Brits so this could have happened. Two of the most dynamic, inspirational, and talented musicians of our lifetime teaming up for one epic song. It is usually sacreligious to mess around with a Beatles classic like “Come Together”. But the mash-up artist here seamlessly manages to link Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” with Lennon’s vocals. Even the video is synced as if this collaboration truly happened. What do you think? Does the mash-up add new flavor to two classics or is this just wrong?

As we look back on the 32 day tournament, what were the 10 most memorable (good and bad) moments of the 2014 World Cup? Note: Two of these are music related as this is Mike’s Daily JUKEBOX

10. Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliance, yet early exit. Ronaldo, not only, has the most perfect set-up assist at the last second to force a tie vs the USA, he alsoscores in the 80th minute against Ghana to put the U.S. into the Quarterfinals as Portugal is eliminated. No tears for Ronaldo though, he and his supermodel girlfriend, Irina Shayk, on the cover of this month’s Maxim Magazine, earned an extended vacation together.
9. Miroslav Klose of Germany at the age of 36 becomes the World Cup’s all-time leading scorer. Playing in his 4th World Cup, Klose tacked on two more goals, running his career total to 16 passing Ronaldo.
8. Lionel Messi earns the Golden Ball? What? The world’s “greatest soccer player” fails to score in the Quarterfinals, Semi-Finals, or the Finals, yet wins the trophy for best player in the tournament. The look in his eyes as he accepted the award showed his disdain for the moment.
7. Tim Howard and James Rodriguez become the new break-out stars of FIFA. Tim Howard’s record breaking saves against the Netherlands earned him internet fame as the new American hero of soccer. The new superstar of soccer could very well be Colombia’s James Rodriguez. Six goals in six games, Maradona and LeBron James both proclaimed their respect for James.   He won the Golden Boot as the tournament’s leading scorer.
6. Shakira’s closing performance! So many all-star performances hyped the World Cup. Wyclef with Santana, Jennifer Lopez with Pitbull, but nothing compared to Shakira’s amazing performance of “La La La” that highlighted the closing ceremony.

5. Brazil’s back is LITERALLY broken after Neymar’s injury. After cracking vertebrae in his back, Neymar missed the last two matches for Brazil. What followed was their worst defeat in Brazil’s illustrious history. No one will forget Germany’s “7 Minutes Of Hell” when they destroyed Brazil.
4. Underdogs surprise us all. Who would guessed the United States surviving the Group of Death? Costa Rica, Algeria, Switzerland, and Greece all qualify for the 2nd Stage and defending champs, Spain, Italy, and England bow out early.
3. Luis Suarez wanted some Italian Food – unfortunately he had to settle for an Italian opponent. For the THIRD time, Uruguay’s Luis Suarez bit an opponent during a match. His resulting four month suspension eliminated any hope for Uruguay in the 2nd Round.

 

2. Brazil proved to be the ultimate host country for this event. Vibrant energy, the huge crowds gathered on the beach to watch the event live, the huge volume of the Brazilians during their National Anthem all took our breath away. Who can forget the fireworks above the Christ The Redeemer Statue after the final goal!

1. Mario Gotze scores the latest goal in the history of the World Cup to clinch Germany’s FOURTH World Cup. Mario was one of Germany’s super subs that provided that extra energy needed to lock up the victory. Gotze is a product of Germany’s new training system, an innovation approach that truly worked miracles.

The last music video that Michael Jackson ever filmed was his slow jam, “One More Chance” filmed in Las Vegas, Nevada.    The song was part of Michael’s greatest hits package “Number Ones” and included on his monumental DVD box-set “Michael Jackson’s Vision”.    “One More Chance” went to #1 in multiple countries worldwide but only went to #83 in the States. What is wrong with American pop music fans?     You may recognize R. Kelly’s background vocals in the mix, he wrote the song for Michael.   The music video flips the script as Michael is seen in the audience as a large choir fills the stage.   While producing this video, the Neverland Ranch police raid was going on.  The video wasn’t released until after Michael’s death with new footage added posthumously.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-owpIWQMd80

“ONE MORE CHANCE”    The Jackson Five
Not to be confused with the slow jam from Michael’s solo career, “One More Chance” was also the name of the best non-Jackson Five single from their debut album.  The song was the B-Side to both “I’ll Be There” and “I Want You Back”.  “One More Chance” is innocent, pure, and vintage 70′s Motown.   Hearing Michael sing lines like “Everybody loves the star, When he’s on the top.  But no one ever comes around, When he starts to drop.  But you were someone special, You stuck through thick and thin.  But I was much too busy trying to shine, To let your love shine in” seem prophetic after all of the scandals regarding Michael’s tumultuous later years.   You can find this song on the Jackson Five’s ABC album.

Sad to say, this never happened. But if you’re a fan of old school 80′s Freestyle dance music, a lineup of this magnitude is getting together for an incredible concert this fall. So far, only more three dates have been announced, two in Florida and one in Texas. The previous shows in Houston and San Antonio got primarily great reviews. If you were going to dance clubs in the late 80′s to the mid 90′s, this is a must see special event. Non-stop hits, a trip back in time, and a night of dancing to some of the most infectious party jams of their day.

New Post has been published on http://mikesdailyjukebox.com/make-break-linda-perry-project-review/Make Or Break: VH1’s Linda Perry Project ReviewVH1′s new reality show, “Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project” debuted last night. After scoring a major 90′s hit, “What’s Up” with her alt-rock band, 4 Non Blondes, Linda became one of the finest songwriters and producers of the past 15 years. Christina Aguilera, P!nk, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys, Steven Tyler, The Dixie Chicks, Courtney Love…Linda Perry has been a force and at the heart of music today. Why do a reality show? The opening minute of the show puts it all on the line when Linda said, “I’ve got a lot to lose here, my reputation, my credibility, and I honesty don’t want to lose any of it. I’m doing this because I truly feel the music industry has missing passion and emotion, I have a talent for pushing out those emotions.” Watch this clip as Linda shares her disgust at the product pushing music reality shows on TV today.
MAKE OR BREAK PREVIEW:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3k-aW_fWWrM
This show is not in competition with American Idol or The Voice where brand new artists especially chosen for TV are highlighted each week. Linda listened to countless demos and handpicked some veteran artists who have seen their career stalled out.  They’re living at L.A.’s famous Paramour Mansion and recording at Perry’s Kung Fu Gardens Studio.  Linda is hoping to mentor, inspire, and evoke the passion inside of them. Everyone here has the raw talent, but something is holding them back. One notable group on the first episode, Hunter Valentine (pictured here), has been struggling for a decade. Linda’s been-there done-that with her career. She’s the perfect ally to offer strong guidance as they discuss breaking up the band.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nnj-bhv6vQ
The goal of the series is for Linda to sign at least one artist to her label. Judging from the first episode, this is a welcome radical change to music reality competitions. There was no elimination, no forced karaoke moments, no Hollywood glamor, but thankfully Linda did not hold back any sharp opinions or heartfelt praise either.   Linda Perry is known for her honesty, swagger, and no-holds barred approach, yet her vulnerability and sincere interest in these artists is undeniable.   The first episode did move slower than expected but true music fans will truly appreciate going behind the scenes, witnessing the entire songwriting and recording process. Look for Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project on Wednesdays, 10PM EST.

With Mariano gone, Metallica are in search of a new athlete in need of a entrance song. Jay Harris, Scott Van Pelt, and Stuart Scott all appear in the 30 second spot with Metallica.

Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful”, TLC’s “Unpretty”, and Pink’s “F**king Perfect” were empowering female anthems of acceptance and diversity. Regardless of a woman’s outer appearance or perceived imperfections, each of these songs praised inner beauty. This familiar theme is the basis of two brand new videos premiering this week. John Legend’s follow-up to “All Of Me” is titled “You and I” and Colbie Caillat’s “Try”.
“YOU AND I (Nobody In The World)” John Legend
Ever look in the mirror and not like what you see? John Legend’s video dramatically features a variety of women staring at their reflections in a mirror. A young girl with Down’s Syndrome, a female boxer, even a woman bald from chemotherapy treatments are featured in the video. Look for celebrity cameos by Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, and Laverne Cox, one of the stars of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black. You can see the pain and the joy in this emotional clip, be prepared to shed to tears as you watch this one.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi3bc9lS3rg
“TRY” Colbie Caillat
It’s one thing for a man to tell a woman that her inner beauty is just as important as her outer beauty. But hearing it from another woman can add a deeper emotional impact. The ultimate California surfer girl, Colbie Caillat, is a beautiful blonde singer. She’s been pressured to “sex up” her wholesome image to sell more records. Colbie took the opposite approach with her latest single. “Try” encourages women to take the make up off, be real, and wholeheartedly accept yourself. People should like you for who you really are. The inspirational video really promotes a wonderful self-image that hopefully reaches young girls everywhere.

Bush’s declaration of vengeance against the terrorists.   The intense lyrics and lead singer, Ed Kowalczyk’s vocals perfectly captured the mood of a mournful nation.    Live sold 20 million albums worldwide and twice scored the #1 CD in the nation (Throwing Copper ’95,  Secret Samadhi ’97).    In the post-grunge world of the mid to late 90′s, Live was consistently on the Modern Rock Charts.   Eight Top 10 singles and 17 Top 40 hits in a decade.

In 2005, after Chris Daughtry performed on American Idol, he credited Live as being as his favorite band.   Daughtry’s cover of Live’s version of “I Walk The Line” introduced new fans to the Pennsylvania rockers.   But by 2008,  band turmoil and a lawsuit filed against Ed Kowalczyk by his bandmates, ended the band as we know them.   In 2011, Chris Shinn from the band, Unified Theory, has taken over lead singer duties.  Ed Kowalczyk released his third solo CD last year.   Let’s look back at some of their emotional, dramatic rockers as we countdown Live’s Top 10 Songs:

Good ole Southern boys in backward baseball caps singing about drinks, girls, the beach, and pickup trucks. There’s no end in sight. Billboard’s Top 10 Country Songs this week, #2 Jake Owen (Beachin’), #3 Luke Bryan, #4 Florida-Georgia Line with Luke Bryan, #5 Dierks Bentley (Drunk On A Plane), #6 Kenny Chesney, #9 Lee Brice. But country music has always been a tight community that gives back to their fans. Florida Georgia Line are hoping to use their music to make a difference in the world launching their new Dirt Charity Campaign.

 
Two new Bro-Country videos will be quickly joining this upper echelon on the charts. Florida Georgia Line’s latest, “Dirt” and newcomer Tyler Farr’s testosterone-driven “Whiskey In My Water”. Before you criticize the music, you’ve got to appreciate FGL’s goal. Proceeds from “Dirt” will be donated to the Habitat For Humanity charity. The duo are hoping to earn $100,000 for needy families. Tyler and Bryan both bought their first homes this year and want other families to live out their dreams. The upbeat single’s key lyric, ” “Her blue-eyed summer time smile looks so good that it hurts/(Makes you wanna build a) 10 percent down/White picket fence house on this dirt”. Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr will be the opening acts on Jason Aldean’s fall tour. Click here for tour dates:

Before Teddy, you had rap, you had R&B, you had hip hop, and Gospel all competing on the radio.  In fact, if a rapper added a singer to their song back in the day, they were ridiculed as being “too soft”.  But, Riley wanted those hardcore street beats combined with the soulful voices and melody he loved.   His New Jack Swing sound had SWAGGER!   It was fresh, sexy, and exciting.   Even though those early records relied on synthesizers and drum machines, it was the passionate R&B vocals that powered the era. Even Michael Jackson dropped Quincy Jones as his producer for Teddy Riley when he released his “Dangerous” CD.  Michael recognized New Jack Swing’s potential right from the start.    Here’s a look back at 5 Teddy Riley Lost Classics from the early days of New Jack Swing
