Bloodhound Gang - The Bad Touch

I remember on the radio quite frequently as a child the lyrics, "You and me, baby, ain't nothing but mammals..." I hadn't really thought of it in years, but once I did I had to listen to it again and revisit this silly song, and a radio favorite for a short while (at least, where I am from). Here I am, so many years later in my college years, and I am just remembering it now!

Here is The Bad Touch by the Bloodhound Gang, a quirky, odd group headed by a guy that looks a lot like Elijah Wood  for some reason:

If you thought that was any good, then you might be wondering what the lyrics are (considering the way they put them down so fast and without hesitation). Good luck trying to sing to it for a while; you'll barely be able to catch your breath!

"Life is Good" by Nas is No.1 on Billboard

"Life is Good" by hip-hop star Nas has reached number one on the Billboard album charts recently, with 149,000 copies being sold in its first week alone. This bumped off the Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" from the No.1 position on the charts.

Turns out this was No. 8
This is the tenth album by Nas, who can now claim six chart-topping albums in his repertoire. The other albums in the top ten were an odd collection, seeing the Dark Knight Rises soundtrack and Kidz Bop 22 amongst their ranks.

Here's a bit more info from Yahoo! News:

"A surprise entry from Phil Collins landed at No. 6 as the veteran rocker's 1998 "...Hits" compilation returned to the chart with 40,000 copies sold, fueled by Amazon MP3 selling the set for 99 cents in a one day offer last week.

The retail website also sold Frank Ocean's "Channel Orange" for $2.99 all week, but according to Billboard chart rules, no album sold for below $3.49 in the first four weeks of release will count towards official album sales figures.

deadmau5 - Sofi Needs a Ladder

I'm not quite sure if I've posted anything by deadmau5 in the past (though I have a strong feeling that I have), but here is a particularly excellent song by the electronic artist that goes by the name of Sofi Needs a Ladder, and it is quite impressive if you ask me.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think down below in the comments. ;D
