We have a diverse batch of goodies for you this year. New additions include a duet with Elvis Presley and Martina McBride; a New Kids on the Block reissue; Stephen Colbert's debut Christmas album; and a Hanukkah jam from Erran Baron Cohen. And the great thing about holiday tunes is that you can recycle them every year! So, get acquainted with the new stuff, and then dig into our archive to resurrect the classic favorites.
Start by imagining Missy Elliott as a Cockney Brit from outer London--OK, that's a tough one. But the English need to get their hair done too (in Sovereign's case, a demi-cornrow with a dash of Sporty Spice does the trick), and as long as that's the case, this recent Jay-Z signee will keep dropping tight breakbeats about baggy trousers and shiny new trainers.
Now that Daylight Savings Time has ended, it's that odd time of the year when it gets dark while we're still at work (at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere with day jobs). Sun worshippers may be bummed, but night owls should be psyched about the extra hours of darkness. Either way, it's a good time for everyone to get out and embrace the nightlife!
Remember the '91 classic "The Choice Is Yours," whose lyrics go a little something like this: "...You can get with this, or you can get with that..."? Well, Dres of the platinum-selling hip-hop group Black Sheep has revitalized the hit by rewriting the lyrics in hopes to inspire and remind voters to vote on Election day.
