Best of Alt / Electro Pop (9 Songs) Week 51
by Benjamin Groff
Ahh, so the end of the year is approaching. Looking back at 50 weeks of BitCandy's Blogs On Music...what have we learned? Well for starters, you just can't trust Lindsay Lohan. And secondly, wow...there is actually intelligent, edgy, artistic pop music out there if you look for it. And no longer do these have to be your "guilty pleasures" but just your "pleasures." Yes, that's right...we love to champion great pop music. On that note...here's our latest installment of PopKiller, the best alternative pop and pop songs on the web this week.
Oh and did I tell you we have an internet radio station playing all this shit! Yes we do!
Just click "Open Internet Radio" in our Menu, go to the PopKiller module for (we think) the best alterna/electro/pop station on the web. Let's begin:
"Sleazy Remix 2.0 Get Sleazier" Kesha - a great poet is shameless about their life...they exploit it...and write what they know. So it comes off as no surprise when the poptart of sleaze decides to remix a song on the subject. Believable? Yes. Somehow she pulls off the miracle of getting guest rappers Lil Wayne, Andre 3000, Wiz Khalifa and T.I. There goes 4 rappers credibility in 1 song! (Just kidding).
"Call It What You Want (Treasure Fingers Remix)" Foster The People - Nice one Treasure Fingers (whoever the f you are).
"Room For Happiness" Kaskade feat Skylar Grey - Damn, I was so hoping for Skylar's own project to take off but seems to have gotten stuck. No matter, we have this gem to hold us for the moment.
"Judas (Goldfapp Remix)" Lady Gaga - one of my favs of the recent Born This Way Remixed album. There seems to be a trend these days to do a remix just by slowing the whole fucking record down half tempo. Can't complain...it works. And is also pretty scary.
"HYFR (Hell Ya Fucking Right)" Drake - one of my personal favs off the album. And what an album it is. "HYFR" is also my new license plate. I drive a Gremlin.
"The One That Got Away (R3hab Remix)" Katy Perry. Thee exceptional remix from thou R3hab. By the way...ever see Katy Perry at 16 when she was Katy Hudson? Super talented click here for a peak on an old YouTube vid...so...when are we going to see this side of K.P.?...maybe next album we'll get a surprise.
"Red Lipstick" Rihanna. Our candidate for the next single.
"Resurrect Paradise" Kap Slap (Cobra Starship vs Coldplay vs Axwell) - big and stupid and fun mash up from Kap Slap...just the way we like it.
