Elizabeth’s Picks

  1. Tongue Tied – Grouplove
  2. Get the Girl Back – Hanson
    I added this to the Weekly Rock a few weeks back but now that the album is out I can’t get over how good this song is.  Also, they performed on GMA earlier this week and I happened to catch it, thirteen year old Elizabeth is a little beside herself.

Jenn’s Picks

My song choices this week are quite a mix. I’m featuring some brand new singles, some ’90s classics, and some personal favorites. I hope you enjoy!

  1. We Can’t Stop by Miley Cyrus
    I have Miley at number one since she released her music video this week.  If you guys didn’t see it, check it out here.  Is it too soon to say we have another Amanda Bynes on our hands? 
  2. Bound 2 by Kanye West*
    Not quite sure what I think of Yeezus yet. I’m still hung up on the baby’s name…
  3. Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) by Backstreet Boys
    I’m going to see BSB on their summer tour.  I’m praying they stick to their old stuff.  My heart will probably explode if I hear this live.
  4. Feel This Moment by Pitbull ft. Christina Aguilera
    Christina and Pitbull debuted this song together on The Voice Season 4 Finale this week.  I was excited to check out Christina’s first performance back.  It was a little rocky, but damn, does she look hot or what?  You go, Xtina!
  5. Bills, Bills, Bills by Destiny’s Child
  6. All My Life by K-Ci and Jojo
    Seriously, best ’90s ballad ever.
  7. Big Poppa by The Notorious B.I.G.
  8. Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind
  9. Jumpin’, Jumpin’ by Destiny’s Child 
  10. Over You by Miranda Lambert 
  11. Do I Wanna Know? by Arctic Monkeys*
  12. Over and Over Again by Nelly and Tim McGraw

    New Matt Nathanson!
  3. Distance – Christina Perri ft. Jason Mraz
    This is my favorite Jason Mraz duet since Details in the Fabric with James Morrison.  The lyrics are beautiful, the harmonies are perfect, and um, it’s Jason.
  4. You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling – Glee Cast (Chord Overstreet and Blake Jenner)
    Yes, I still watch Glee.  Why haven’t Sam and Ryder had more duets?

Jenn’s Picks

  1. You Are The Only One I Love by Jaymay
  2. Santeria by Sublime
    Something about this song just makes me feel summer.
  3. Welcome to the Black Parade by My Chemical Romance
    I noticed that some of my music choices are heavily influenced by my grief over the Red Wedding..
  4. Coffee by Copeland
  5. Tragic Kingdom by No Doubt
    Tragic Westerosi Kingdom…
  6. How Low by Ludacris
  7. Moment 4 Life by Nicki Minaj with Drake*
  8. She Will by Lil Wayne with Drake*
  9. Make Me Proud by Drake with Nicki Minaj*
  10. Swimming Pools (Drank) by Kendrick Lamar
  11. I’m on One by DJ Khaled with Drake, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne*
  12. Wasting All These Tears by Cassadee Pope
    This is Cassadee’s much-anticipated brand new single and I have to admit, I’m in love. Can’t wait for the album.

My song choices for #6-11 were all produced by our most recent Monday Man Candy , T-Minus. Four of those songs topped the U.S. Hip-Hop/R&B Charts. They are marked with an asterisk.
