    DC9 at Night's Favorite Summer Songs

    The Problem With... Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe"

    Every wave of music coming out of Canada is quite the "melange." In the most recent one, Drake's fame is pulling up Toronto R&B artists The Weeknd and Melanie Fiona.

    Top 100 Most Annoying Summer Songs

    Shut up, Jimmy Buffett.​You know what really gives us the summertime blues? "Summertime Blues," not to mention other maddening summer hits like "All I Wanna Do," "Margaritaville" or the shotgun-in-mouth-inducing "Hot Hot Hot."

    Year in Review: 2009's Best Proves the Stars Are Shifting in Latin Music

    It's been a year of surprises in Latin music. Reggaetón continues fading, albeit slowly, and the industry's mainstays aren't garnering the attention they used to.

    May Madness

    Dirk Nowitzki is humming David Hasselhoff. Steve Nash digs Nelly Furtado. And Michael Finley, well, he's singing the blues. Those three once had perfect harmony as the Dallas Mavericks' Big Three, but in a cruel act of irony it's Finley--the one forced out of Dallas--who'll be forced to watch as Dir ... More >>
