  • Tonight's Degrassi and Gigantic songs!

    Posted on 10/29/2010 by Mary

    Here's all the song cues I could find from tonight's new episodes...

    You can hear samples of featured songs from the episodes on the Degrassi and Gigantic show pages, if ya like.

    Kate York music on TeenNick's Gigantic
    • "A Place So Small" by Kate York (that's her on the left)
    • "Better With You" by Five Times August
    • "Dizzy from the Ride" by Alex Roots -- this one, by the way, is the show's theme song. And, fyi, we recently learned that Alex Roots is a Virgo who loves tea, Coco Mademoiselle perfume, Paramore, and tidiness. She says the song "was actually written about how clumsy I am! Everyone who knows me best refers to me as a ditz because you can never trust me to not drop, spill, break or smash something. And as the lyrics in the song say... 'My body's always letting me down'."

    He needs somebody to love!Did you catch the video for Justin Bieber's "Somebody to Love" Remix with Usher on Obsess This?

    No matter how you feel about Justin, you've got to admit the dancing in this video is pretty amazing. It includes a bunch of people you might've seen on America's Best Dance Crew, and their energy is infectious. (I love the part where Justin and some of the other dancers are stomping around in what looks like baby powder... it totally makes me want to throw some on the floor and dance in it.)

    Have you seen it? What'd you think?

  • Katy Perry and Russell Brand

    Posted on 06/19/2010 by Mary

    Katy Perry and Russell BrandKaty Perry's "California Gurls" video is on Obsess This this weekend...

    But lately I can't look at her without thinking "Russell Brand." It's like word association. Katy Perry, Russell Brand. I have to say I'm somewhat surprised by their love... do you think they make sense as a couple?

  • I heart the new Aaron Fresh video.

    Posted on 06/12/2010 by Mary

    My top five favorite things about the new Aaron Fresh video:

    1) The way he chomps on the girl's face all goofy at the very end.
    2) The dancings.
    3) The song.
    4) Ok maybe this is weird, but I like that the video is about a dude working in fast food who has a crush on a girl. It's like the opposite of that T.I. video for "Whatever You Like" where the girl works at a fast food joint and big rich T.I. comes and rescues her buys her expensive stuff she doesn't need. I'd way rather hang out in a parking lot with my friends dancing, and then retire to a field of dandelions with someone who really liked me. Maybe that's just me though.
    5) And, Aaron himself. The fact that he can sing and move and looks comfortable and at ease and seems really sweet and not gas-headed and like if you knew him in real life, you'd find yourself saying things like "couldn't happen to a nicer guy."

    I don't know, maybe I'm reading too much into it. But Chairman Nick vouches for him, so prolly not.

    What do you guys think of that song and video?

  • What's going on your summer mix?

    Posted on 05/24/2010 by Mary

    Iyaz's "Solo" video (click to watch!) on Obsess This this weekend made me want to bust out a sundress and go drink lemonade. Plus with next Monday being Memorial Day, I keep hearing the word "summer" get casually thrown around.

    It's happening! Summer is actually going to happen this year! I dared not believe it! But now...so stoked.

    So come on and tell the world: What's going on the first version of your Summer 2010 playlist?

  • Justin Bieber: Yay or nay?

    Posted on 05/01/2010 by Mary

    Did you see our new Obsess This thingy? It was on at 10 am et today (like cartoons, but with Taylor Swift and Big Time Rush) and it's on again at noon et on Sunday (cereal + music + sleeping in = weekend gold). You can see the videos over here, too, if ya like.

    Anyway, what with Justin Bieber's "Baby" being up there, I thought now was as good a time as any to have a Justin Bieber debate in the comments!

    1) Are you a fan, or are you rolling your eyes right now?

    2) Whether you'd buy his stuff or not... how talented do you think he is on a scale from 1 -10? One being "kind of like those first episodes of American Idol every season where they trot out the crazies" and 10 being "Basically Michael Jackson".

    3) And... would you kick him out of your car if he asked for a ride home?

  • What's that "We Are" song?

    Posted on 02/26/2010 by Lisa

    Over on the message boards, Kyokugen22 asked "Anyone know the ending song that plays at the end of 'Love Games'?" I'm swinging my hand in the air wildly, because I totally know the answer. It's "We Are" by Tupelo Honey. Here's their MySpace.
