Listen-8 Fav Alternative Pop Songs (Week 1) 2012
Psy flushes Gangman style down the toilet yeahy!!! I am so ready for 2k13...We know it’s hard to get back into the groove of things after all the heavy drinking, dancing, puking, and kissing! But don’t you worry your pretty little spinning heads, BitCandy is here to help you get through the week like a champ!.... OOOH...hello David Bowie + Rihanna + Afrojack! Looks like it’s going to be a great year for BitCandy’s Popkiller! Here are this week's picks for our kind of pop that doesn’t suck.
Zedd - Clarity feat. Foxes (Acoustic Version)
Eeergh??? Commercial for Beats by Dre headphones? Anyways..We were in wuvz with the original version of ‘Clarity,’ but I think me likes this version a bit more. Foxes’s butter melting vocals + Zedd’s perfect timing on the piano give the song an uplifting clarity. I think this could be a contender for ‘Best of Indie Love Songs.’
Rihanna "Stay" 777 Tour Live From London
I don’t know how Riri manages to smoking weed with the Snoop Lion, get after party IV Drips with BFF Katy Perry, and sound unapologetically good during a live performance of "Stay." It’s a bit pitchy, but her performance is genuinely nice.
Wale "The Blessings"
God bless the man with ambition! Love me or hate me, I am a fan of Wales’ witty hater rhymes. Here’s the latest rambling track: "Now I'm not trying to say I'm the toughest ni--a in the world. I'm not trying to say I can beat everybody A$$," says Wale. "All I'm saying is if a ni--a got a problem with Wale, then say my f-cking name.”

David Bowie - Let's Dance
A little 4-1-1 for ya! David Bowie hired Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers (Disco’s greatest band) as co-produce for the romantic new wave album. The voice and beat of the track made the album one of Bowie’s best sellers. Who knew!!!
Keane - Sovereign Light Café (Afrojack Remix)
Keane has been jacked...Afrojacked that is, and it sounds freaking sweet! Worth the listen and worthy of dancing.
Stronger Enough (Kelly Clarkson vs. Michael Jackson)
MASHUP!!!! Never has an American Idol sounded so good … Dj Lobsterdust won’t stop till you get enough.
Kendrick Lamar "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst" - A Cappella
PSY - "Gangnam Style" (Live New Years Eve 2012)
Of course we couldn't let you go with this tasty South Korean morsel of pop...with "Gangnam Style" live on New Years Eve. Ahh it was a whole 6 months ago that BitCandy 1st turned you on to this one. Click here for original post before everyone caught on.
