Dangerous Muse Returns with New Song: "Fame Kills"

And you thought Sophie Ellis-Bextor was bad: After almost seven years, three singles and two EPs, Dangerous Muse still have yet to release their debut album, Take Control. Despite the fact that they've got a full album boasting production by the likes of Swedish pop masters Bloodshy & Avant,…


Another Song 4 Mutya: Paul Morrell - "Give Me Love (feat. Mutya Buena)"

So, um...wait--oh? Really? Okay! Mutya Buena has a new song for us, y'all! The song is called "Give Me Love," and it's a collaboration between UK House DJ Paul Morrell and former Sugababes founding member, Mutya Buena. It sounds like this: As you can plainly hear, "Give Me Love" is the kind of…


MuuMuse Presents: The Top 50 Singles of 2010

Still hot from the Internet-killing, bandwidth-shattering success of yesterday's Top 40 Albums of 2010 list (including a most major of giveaways, in which I'm giving away ALL TEN ALBUMS that made the Top 10 of the list--you still have time to enter up until January 2!), I now present MuuMuse's Top…


MuuTunes: The MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of August 22, 2010

MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of August 22, 2010 5. Jade Ewen - My Man Even if she's currently operating as one third of one of the UK's greatest girl groups of all time, Ewen's short-lived solo effort still finds its way onto my playlists constantly. A sassy, shouty chorus and…


Armin van Buuren vs. Sophie Ellis-Bextor: Not Giving Up On Love (Video Premiere)

And now, what we've all been waiting for: The video premiere for Dannii Minogue's "Perfection." Wait, what? It's--OH, FUCK. SORRY. I saw a boat, and then I sort of assumed it was "Perfection" from the ocean and the arm choreography and--well, never mind then. This is Sophie Ellis-Bextor's…


Selena Gomez Unveils Album Cover for Upcoming Release, 'A Year Without Rain'

Selena Gomez just posted the official album cover to her upcoming sophomore effort, A Year Without Rain. I, like my dear friend Prophet, find myself stanning so hard for this Disney debutante. I just want her to WIN. She's like a mini Ellis-Bextor-to-be in my eyes. A Year Without Rain will be…


The Number One Song in France This Week is Sung By An Animated Mole (or Why American Top 40 Isn't So Bad After All)

In America, we pop nerds have a tendency to bitch and moan about the general makeup of the Top 40 charts: It's nothing but the same producers, cluttering the airwaves with the same, predictable paint-by-numbers dance-tinged hip-hop. Far too much Flo-Rida and Jay Sean; not nearly enough Sophie…

Pop for Pop's Sake: The Demise of Girls Can't Catch

In case you haven't heard, Girls Can't Catch were dropped. While I was admittedly critical of the girls when they first launched last year (the name was never going to be okay in my eyes), "Keep Your Head Up" was a solid grower along with "Echo," and the songs that I'd heard from their recently…


A Rush of Electricity: Sophie Ellis-Bextor Performs "Bittersweet" on GMTV

And here's how "Bittersweet" sounds when sung live on national television. I'm surprised by how well Sophie Ellis-Bextor pulls off the vocals for this one, as I would have thought it'd be a much harder song to sing live--especially early in the morning. She's still an icy disco queen when she…


MuuTunes: The MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of April 11, 2010

MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of April 11, 2010 5. Tila Tequila - I Fucked The DJ She may drag the term "fame whore" down to frightening new low, but this song is just too much filthy fun. 4. Alex Gardner - I'm Not Mad Further evidence of Xenomania's pop perfection. Unstoppably good.…
