Dale – Pitbull – After so much time spent with gigantic pop samples for the masses this is perhaps Mr. 305’s finest moment, salsa fresh beats, sup rb raps, captivating samples and that iconic cackle. PS if you think it hurts not knowing what the lyrics are, you don’t listen to much Pitbull -ALBUM OF THE WEEK – A

Crazy about the new Pitbull. No, not at all, but it is a long long time since “Hotel Room Service’ and at the very least the thrill of Pitbull has gone… though, a fried of a friend is Pitbull’s manager and he swears the guy is the sweetest guy in the biz…

Inspired use of Rare Earth’s “I Just Want To Celebrate” anchors this terrific horns aplenty party track off the soundtrack to the latest Madagascar movie. The sight of 100s of penguins tap dancing to this track will leave you… well, it will probably leave you queasy but the track is still a goodie – B+

Silly that ‘late night’ TV has become such a drag When you’re up late at night with insomnia you should be treated to new sounds and disturbing images not the same artists who appear in soda commercials. Unfortunately thats not the case at al

Carlos Santana Compares Pitbull To Queen

By Helen Bach | May 20, 2014

It took Pitbull 20 takes on this tune. I’m hoping they’re speaking of the entire track and not just the vocals. I’m sure its pretty tough to sing a song without shouting out locations so that may be the problem.

The episode of “New Girl” featuring Prince was like Pixie and Dixie as they outshone each other in whimsy and twerk and the song itself is one of the worst Prince has put his name to. It is so cutesy you wanna scream and, surely Prince’s calling card, the beat is flat – D+

Lovers Who Wander – Dion – the follow up to “Runaway Sue” is just as good, no really. Dion has recovered and now he doesn’t care and with the same back, the same melody, the same concept, he finds something new. Astonishing – A

Armando is 33 can he sustain this implied Casanova role? Yup. This guy owns his genre. The ugly mans sex god, the hispanic hottie who is so dangerously unattractive it hurts.. and you just wont care.

OK, where the hell is “Trumpets”? He played it at Jingle ball and it has been on the UK charts for a couple of months now, but while Jason is back with the admittedly good “Talk Dirty”, “Trumpets” is a killer hook on horns come to life.

So OK, I went 50-50 on Perry and Gaga, I didn’t think PRISM was dead a duck and it isn’t and I didn’t thing Artpop was dead as a duck and it is dead a duck. I don’t see why Gag doesn’t pull out “Gypsy” it has hit single written all over it

I’ve got few problems with this chart, I mean it is what it is, right? Nice to see the excellent “Timber” at the top of the charts and while there are a coupla dogs here, mostly it isn’t that bad. Not the worst way to jump start 20140

Not much to think about here, right? The bloody charts haven’t moved in a month and here is a question, where the heck is young Beyonce? Surely XO should have hit the charts by now? I hope they don’t think “Drunk In Love” is gonna put it just because her husband is on the track.

So Feinstein’s is so no more and Michael has moved himself to San Francisco and opened a new room and yes, folks, it is missed but here he is again back for a Christmas stand at Birdland. A little pricey but should be worth the admission fee –I’ll be there Christmas Eve and Mike will be jazzing things up through December 28 th.

Pitbull is right back at the top after his phenomenal performance at Jingle Ball last week and “Timber” is the only song I’d listen to for, how you say, pleasure. I hate “Counting Stars” although I can hear how some other people might love it…

Sometimes you look at the charts and you say, ‘who are these people? I haven’t heard of one of them.” And other times you look at the charts and you say “Who are these people? Well, I know every single one like the back of my hand and they all suck”. 2013 has been a lousy year for music and this is a disgraceful chart.

Hand it to Ke$ha on this one, she handles the chorus with complete confidence and smartiness and the song is a sweet nothing but Pitbull always mixes pop smarts with Latin American savvy.

American Music Awards Announce This Years Host…Pitbull?

PITBULL as the HOST? This could be the oddest programming choice of 2013. There is no doubt in my mind that it will be a hilarious hot mess. Can’t wait!
