LISTEN with beats by Dre

I just got the studio version headphones of Dr. Dre's and Monster Cable's collaboration as a gift. What a beautiful product! Haven't been able to listen to music the same ever since. Anybody who knows me knows that I can get obsessive-compulsive, so hence, in this circumstance, I had to get all my post Chronic 2001 Dr. Dre produced songs together and make a playlist on my Ipod. In this process, the obsessive part comes in here, I sought out any tracks that I haven't heard before and here are some of my favorite, lesser-known, Dr. Dre gems:

{Production-wise, this is probably more average for Dre, but lyrically, and I usually am not drawn into a song lyrics first, this is a gem.}

Will we ever get a Detox?

Rough, Rugged & Raw

Probably one of the rawest videos I have seen in a long time.

Jingle Bell Rock

Sleigh Bells "Infinity Guitars"

Sleigh Bells - Rill Rill

Sleigh Bells is one of the most exciting indie rock groups of 2010. It's like listening to Santigold on acid, both beauty and ugly rockin' their heads out.

National Pastime

With Christina Aguilera's rendition of the National Anthem at yesterday's Super Bowl getting a lot of flack for forgetting some of the words (come on Christina, it's you job to know the words! At the same time, I give you props for going live), here are some of my favorite National Anthems (the good, the bad and the ugly):

The good:

{Marvin Gaye, the greatest. Will there be another classic rendition at this year's All-Star game in LA?}

{Boyz II Men just kill it}

{I wish there was a cleaner version available, but when I saw this live a tear dropped.}

The bad:

{This is why only musicians should perform.}

The ugly:

{Comic genius?}

Super Bowl Halftime Shows

Super Bowl XLV is upon us, which could end up being one of the great Super Bowls, I mean come on, Packers, Steelers at the new Cowboy Stadium. But sometimes, I would even say most of the time, the halftime show is more exciting. So in my opinion, here are the greatest Super Bowl halftime shows:

{MJ in MJ fashion, but I wish he would have actually sung.}

{In the purple rain, Prince just kills it.}
