Monday Jams: “Caribbean Queen” by Billy Ocean

Um, if this doesn’t make your Monday better, than I can’t help you. Warning: the drama that ensues in this video is super intense. Like, glass breaking. Literally.

Monday Jams: “Uncertainty” by Jagwar Ma

Jagwar-Ma-0072-658x350So this is a band that my younger brother told me to check out in hopes to make me cooler and perhaps find something other than the Frozen soundtrack to jam out to. I took his recommendation…which meant that I would just randomly drop the band’s name in conversation to make myself appear cooler to interested gentlemen folk. The only problem with that was, since I never bothered to actually look up the band, I pronounced it “Jaguar Ma,” once again proving that I am not, in fact, cool.

Turns out that when I actually listened to Jagwar Ma, I realized they’re a band I can totally get into. Especially since the lead singer is rockin’ a Devon Sawa haircut. You’re welcome.


Monday Jams: “Back From the Dead” by Skylar Grey

Once again, I’m turning over my musical credits to my favorite Singaporean who, for the third week in a row, has recommended the jam of the week.

Skylar Grey totally rocks these vocals and that lace dress (is it a dress?…I’m not sure, but it’s fucking fabulous and I want one…mainly to wear around my apartment by myself so I can finally justify buying a flapper-style cigarette holder and just carry it around–sans cigarette, of course–and pretend to be Audrey Hepburn). And, as Allie (aforementioned Singaporean) pointed out, this video has some solid creepy factors–just gearing you up for Halloween. En. Joy.

P.S. After posting this, my brother informed me that he helped on the set of this video. Once again proving that everyone in my family is cooler than me.
