lady gaga – born this way


Lady Gaga - Born This Way

It’s here.  Lady Gaga’s new song, “Born This Way,” has finally arrived.

Parts of it remind me of Robyn while other parts of it remind me of Madonna’s “Express Yourself.”

I thought I would like the song a lot more than I do, but I’ll still listen to it.  It makes me super excited for the new album to come out.  I’ve been missing me some pop confection.

Lady Gaga – Born This Way


>what song/band are you obsessed with right now?



Do you have a song that you are obsessed with right now?  … That song you listen to and then find yourself listening to over and over again?  If you do, I want to know!

I’m going to put together a playlist of all your favorite music.  Now, in order to do this, I’m going to need all of your help.  If you want to suggest a song to be included in the playlist, please post your recommendation either as a comment to this post or as a comment on the Squeaker Box Facebook page.

You can post multiple songs or just one.  I would really like to get a playlist together for all of you by Sunday, so get those recommendations going!

It’s still snowing here in Pittsburgh.  I really would like to go sled riding (not to be confused with sledding) this weekend.  I tried to get a picture of Nutmeg eating snow, but I didn’t do a very good job.

Here are my fave songs to get me in the the weekend mood (playlist at bottom of post):

Wiz Khalifa – “Stoned”
Yelle – “Safari Disco Club”
Lykke Li – “I Follow Rivers”
Lil’ Wayne – “I Run This Flower Shop” (Bret and I have played this non-stop)
Gucci Mane – “My Chain (Jonwayne’s Basement Mix)
Eliza Doolittle – “Skinny Genes” (I’m a sucker for any whistle song)
Natalia Kills – “Mirrors” (She has the potential to get really big)
Lost in the Trees – “Tall Trees”
Edward Sharpe vs. Kid Cudi – “Home is Wherever I’m With You”
Starfucker – “Boy Toy”

I’m still pretty obsessed with Jessie J and can’t get enough of this acoustic version of “Nobody’s Perfect.”  The song starts around 1:00.

And I’m still VERY MUCH obsessed with Little Comets.  Check out this awesome live rendition of “One Night in October.”  Love love love.

>chris brown ft. pitbull – where do we go from here



Chris Brown should definitely stick to making dance songs.  I think this song is going to get big once it’s released.  Watch out Taio Cruz.

Highlights while finding the song:

Bret:  “Is that Pitbull?”

Me:    “No.”

Bret:  “Yes it is!!  I GUARANTEE it.”

Me:    *checks song* …  “You’re right.”

Bret:  “YES!!! HAH!!!! I know me my Pitbull.”

Enjoy.  And for old times sake, I’ve included my fave Pitbull song “Go Girl”

>ra ra riot – boy



Bret and I plan on going to the apple festival this weekend.  I looked at the weather, and the temperature isn’t supposed to go over 60 (YES!)  I’ve been waiting to wear all the jackets that I have managed to collect over the years.  More importantly, I’m ready (not quite yet) to bring out my duck boots to wear as well.

In the music world there is a NEW RA RA RIOT album!  You have no idea how much this excites me.  I love Ra Ra Riot, and “Can You Tell” is still one of my favorite songs to come up on my shuffle now and then.  Ra Ra Riot just released their album “Orchard” which I haven’t listened to in its entirety yet (appropriate title for my upcoming weekend though, no?)  I put the song “Boy” on mine and Bret’s playlist to my parents’ house last weekend, and I’m a fan.  I has the same charming sound that made me fall in love with Ra Ra Riot. They recorded a Daytrotter session last week, so you can download some live MP3s here.

Check out their latest song, “Boy:”
And just to bring back my old favorite, here is “Can You Tell:”
