Celebrate World Music Day With Us!

To celebrate World Music Day, we’re bringing you all the top five songs to influence the globe. Check them out here and celebrate decades of music with us!


Who doesn’t know about The Beatles?! One of their most popular tracks, “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” attracted fans from all sorts of demographics. It was the band’s first song to hit the top 100 on the Billboards. It sold better in its first 10 days of release in the US than any other British single, and remains the best-selling Beatles single in the United States, moving over 12 million copies. We’re sure this hit will continue to be a favorite for generations to come.



With a subject that is definitely universal, we’re not surprised that this song gained worldwide recognition. This was the first of Franklin’s songs to chart in England. Her line, “Sock it to me,” became a catch phrase on several television shows. Oh, and that line that no one understands after she spells out “respect?” It’s “Take care, TCB!” And TCB means Taking Care of Business. This is one of the most misunderstood song lyrics of all time!



Bon Jovi’s inspirational lyrics in “Living On A Prayer” made this single one of the most successful and widely known as they come.  Used in several television shows and movies, the track was successful in both the UK and New Zealand as well as the US. The song is about a working couple struggling to make ends meet and Jovi said he was inspired by the economy and society during the time he was writing the hit.



We all watched Slumdog Millionaire (If you didn’t, go watch it) and repeatedly heard A.R. Rahman’s instant hit, “Jai Ho.” Though the song is not sung in English, the beat and the background story from the movie quickly made this song a popular hit… whether you understood it or not! Fans love the style of the music within the song and, of course, the dance number that comes with it. Nicole Scherzinger also remixed the song with the famous composer and now she’s gone Bollywood doing remixes of her own with us!



We are a huge fan of MJ, and of this track that is one of the few songs to have sold over 10 million copies worldwide! With lyrics written straight from the heart, this record has been used worldwide for various benefits and special events. Even after the passing of the pop sensation, “We Are The World” continues to be one of the most popular and respected tracks written by the singer.




We hope you enjoyed this trip back in time and don’t forget to be appreciative of the music we have in our lives that keeps us going everyday! Let us know which song was your favorite!

Celebrity Hotspots: Nicole Scherzinger and Chris Brown Celebrate in Vegas and Preity Zinta Hangs in Mumbai!

Nicole Scherzinger was one of many Hollywood celebrities who chose to celebrate their birthdays in Vegas this weekend. The X-Factor judge and former Pussycat Doll enjoyed her 33rd birthday with a group of girlfriends. They chose the Marquee Dayclub as their party destination and dined at Lavo and Tao.



The Marquee Dayclub is located at the new hotel in Las Vegas called the Cosmopolitan and of course the former Pussycat Doll turned solo artist wouldn’t settle for less! And just look at the cake they brought to her that afternoon! Nicole also dressed in a sweet leopard print for her poolside outing. We hope Nicole enjoyed her birthday.





Chris Brown also celebrated his birthday in Sin City. Turning 22, the star chose Pure, the nightclub, as his place to party at. Chris chose to go without a shirt that night, and we are not complaining!  As he showed off his tatted-up chest and a great smile for the camera, it seemed that he fully enjoyed his Vegas birthday in style. Pure Nightclub is located in the Caesars Palace hotel and is a frequent hotspot for celebs.




Moving over to Mumbai, Bollywood star, Preity Zinta, and speedy champ, Brett Lee, were spotted sharing an intimate dinner in Mumbai Olive, a celebrity hotspot. The couple dined and enjoyed each other’s company for more than two hours, so while they have yet to announce they are a couple, we think they might in the near future. What do you think of this possible couple-to-be?
