John Mayer- Why Georgia
I like his growl, and the soft whisper that makes me bend in to hear, i love how his cult of sensitive young girls is so emo, but how he doesn’t get the props emo does, i like how he makes certain words last 4 or 5 syl[…]

SCOOTER – “Weekend!”
Read post

To call the new Scooter single ‘new’ is to make language blush, so let’s say instead that “Weekend!” is the most recent Scooter single. Or let’s say that it’s the most recent draft of the Scooter single, anot[…]
