Invite Jimi Hendrix to your parties this weekend

If you invite Jimi Hendrix to your party, your party will be more fun.

It's science. They've done studies.

Jimi will make your shirt fit better.

Jimi will make your feet lighter, in that funky-good kinda way.

Jimi will make your drink stronger (What? No. Not like that. Why... Why would you even think of that?).

Jimi will make your jokes funnier.

Jimi is just ... cool.
His classic hits are just that - classic - but with Jimi you can also just press play from anywhere on his catalogue of music and you're going to be just fine. All of his songs are largely similar: they feature Jimi playing the guitar really, really well.

That's *kind of* all there is to it, but, at the same time, it's so much more complicated than that.

This weekend, find out what I mean.

the title drew me in! Jimi was that dude and his music is so vibe-y. gotta love him! wish I could've kicked it with him for a day, but his music will have to do. great compilation :) kinda sad you didn't have "Hey Joe" up there though.
He was a true legend who died way before his tme.
perfect for drinking outside and partying with your friends!
you're right!!! I love the fact that you added some that I'm not familiar with, made it all the more better. he's an amazing artist and I've never heard Castles in the Sand -- def have to give it a listen!
@jordanhamilton I feel you. Chilling with Jimi would be a dream. And nothing but love for Hey Joe, just gotta make room for some other favorites is all - Castles in the Sand is another of my favorites but I couldn't find a youtube video of it for some reason.

I Can't Believe It's Not ____!: Songs you didn't know were covers
Full disclosure: Neither butter nor its evil counterpart, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, have really anything to do with the rest of this card at all. But the name is just so damn catchy and malleable, so, forgive me. Moving on, I'm here to give some love to the original composers and performers of songs that you may not know deserve credit. Sometimes, a song gets buried for years, only to be picked up by a totally different artist (often in a different genre and style), and it's the second version that blows up. In lots of these cases, there is little mention of the original. Let's change that. I Can't Believe It's Not LED ZEPPELIN! Song: "Dazed and Confused" (1969) Original: Jake Holmes (1967) Eerily enough, Jake Holmes actually has some real Robert Plant qualities to his voice. Or maybe Plant ripped his vocal style off of Holmes just like he did one of his best songs. I don't know. Is nothing sacred? I Can't Believe It's Not AMY WINEHOUSE! Song: "Valerie" (2007) Original: The Zutons (2006) The Zutons are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. They're a not-very-good mid-2000s Brit rock group, but something about the lead singer's voice is really appealing to me. Amy's version is damn-near perfect and is the basis of every A Capella group's top hit, but it wouldn't have been possible without The Zutons. Which is not something that you can say for many things in this world. I Can't Believe It's Not ARETHA FRANKLIN! Song: "Respect" (1967) Original: Otis Redding (1965) Ok, this one is legitimately surprising. I've heard the Otis version a million times and I didn't know that it was his song until recently. The two versions are really, really different, and each is awesome in its own right. It's hard to go wrong with Otis or Aretha. Everyone wins. I Can't Believe It's Not THE BEATLES! Song: "Twist and Shout" (1963) Original: The Isley Brothers (1962) The Isley Brothers didn't actually write this song - Phil Medley and Bert Burns did - but they were the first to chart the song, before The Beatles did a year later. Fun fact: The Beatles recorded Please Please Me, the record that contains this hit, in just 10 hours. Their producer knew that "Twist and Shout" would totally ruin John Lennon's voice because of its demanding style, so he saved it for last, with just 15 minutes of scheduled recording time left. Indeed, it totally blew out Lennon's voice, and, while the producer wanted to do a second take, Lennon just couldn't manage it. Ended up fine, if you ask me. I Can't Believe It's Not ELVIS PRESLEY! Song: "Hound Dog" (1956) Original: Big Mama Thornton (1952) Oh man! OH MAN! Who is Big Mama Thornton, and where has she been? This woman is a force! She also recorded "Ball n' Chain" before Janis Joplin made it a hit. Give the lady some love! This version is fucking awesome! But, yeah, Elvis's is better. Sorry Big Mama. Which one surprises you the most? Do you like the originals better, or the more popular covers? Music community folks: Reveal yourselves!
How to Look Like Stevie Nicks
Whether you love Stevie's solo stuff or are a die-hard Fleetwood Mac fan, you can't deny that the songbird had some killer style back in the day. From her peasant-princess 70's looks to her amped-up 80's style, I'm taking you through Stevie Nicks' style. (Special shout-out to @allischaaff for reminding me how inspirational Ms. Nicks' fashion has been!) 70's In the 1970's, Fleetwood Mac was fresh on the music scene, and Stevie Nicks was the gorgeous lead singer that had an understated bohemian fashion sense envied by all. Her half-up, half-down blonde hairstyle was embellished with eyebrow skimming bangs. She wore plenty of trends of the seventies from peasant blouses to bell-bottoms, but she kept them sultry and simple, often in black, white, or cream. 70's Stevie was not shy of accessorizing, however, and she layered on necklaces and chains as embellishment to her simple dresses and tops. A chain or two would add some subtle glamour to an otherwise breezy and lightweight bohemian look. These aviator sunglasses were also a common look, coyly tucked under her signature bangs. She often wore a kimono, scarf, or shawl draped over her arms for some stylish coverage. 70's For the cameras, Ms. Nicks hammed up her seventies style with brooches, halters, and her flippy, flippy hair. The flared jeans and platform heel combo was then and is now especially cool and relaxed looking, without seeming costumey. 80's ...and then came the 1980's, and our beloved bohemian goddess went through a bit of a transformation. If this is the look you're after, take a comb to your hair, and just start teasing. Gone is Stevie's fresh face, to be replaced with a bright lip and swept-on blush. There's something to say for Stevie's look in the 80's. Perhaps it was over-the-top and bolder than her demure 70's style, but she was also coming into her own and recording solo music at the time, which turned out to be a big success. Her signature pout stayed the same all along, she just added more or less to emphasize those blonde longs and her petite frame. 80's Stevie went in the glam route in the 80's, but merged the boldness of glitter and sequins with a witchy darkness that seperated her from cutsier girl groups of the decade. If you aren't afraid to try some big hair and sparkle, avoid color and drape yourself in feathers and sequins in black for the Stevie effect. "Stand Back" shows more 80's influence than her softer work (like Landslide) with Fleetwood Mac, but she also develops a more nuanced sound that sets her apart from 80's pop, and her dark and enchanting style shows this. Stevie Nicks has been aptly named the fairy godmother of rock. Throw on some layered necklaces and black sequins, and tease up your hair to channel your inner Stevie and feel the girl power course through your veins.
10 Panic! At The Disco Songs That'll Help You Move On
Love is a fickle thing. It comes and goes faster than you can snap your fingers. Certain bands have a way of documenting the bitterness you feel after a break-up, or the freedom of taking a break. Panic! At The Disco is one of those bands. So, if you've been hurt or tricked, heart-broken or forgotten, this one's for you. 1. Nicotine / Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! Bitter break-ups are a real thing. Trust me, I've been there. Sometimes you get addicted to a person and the way they make you feel. Losing control and hope can lead to freedom...but more or less it just results in a dependence on destruction. Nicotine is an ode to that. When people become addictive, we know it's probably time to move on, just for our own safety. When you enter a relationship that is unstable and exciting, we can fall into bad habits, and just like Nicotine...that person could very well ruin your life. Best Lyric: "Just one more hit and then we're through / cause you could never love me back." 2. Mercenary / Batman Arkham City Soundtrack A lot of fans missed this song because of its limited release. But it's a fantastic song to listen to right after you break up with someone and need reassurance that yes, being alone is hard, but it's better than being jerked around. Best Lyric: I dodge the blast and apologize for collateral damage. Because while we can't save every relationship, we can acknowledge what we learned from the worst ones. 3. Nearly Witches (Ever Since We Met) / Vices Virtues Much like Nicotine, this song centers on the idea of addiction. The person you're with gives you a feeling like no other, and when that crash lands to earth and the honeymoon is over...your feelings have to deal. When something is really really good, and we end up having to let it go for some reason, we almost wish it never happened. By removing the experience of that person, we don't have to feel the pain. Best Lyric: "Ever since we met / I only shoot-up with your perfume / Its the only thing / that makes me feel as good as you do / ever since we met / I've got just one regret to live through/ and that one regret is you." 4. Turn off the Lights / Vices Virtues, Bonus Track After being single for a little while, this song became my anthem. It nails that empty feeling you get after you leave someone for the last time. Things are never easy after you get hurt, or you hurt someone else. But escaping...into a world of your choosing whether it be work, playing music, or finding someone new, could be the anecdote to your love-sick heart. I identify with this song because it's very honest. The lyrics ring out like a lost call over a forgotten battlefield, "Our consciences are always so much heavier than our egos." Sometimes the scariest moments in our lives are when we're forced to be alone with our thoughts. Best Lyric: "I've got my heavy heart to hold me down / once it falls apart / my head's in the clouds." 5. Time To Dance / A Fever You Can't Sweat Out Heavily inspired by Chuck Palahniuk "Invisible Monsters", Time To Dance is an exposing of the fickle nature of beauty and the effect on our relationships with others. When you leave a relationship or are reluctant to move on, there's going to be a lot of anger involved. You're going to feel like you're being pulled in a lot of different directions, and your friends, parents, whoever...are all going to want to weigh in on what you do. "Give me a break" is a lyric that you'll hear in your head over and over again. Sometimes all you need when you're trying to move on is the attention of someone else. Best Lyric: "Give me envy, give me malice, give me your attention, give me envy, give me malice, give me a break." 6. Bittersweet / Vices Virtues Bonus Track When you're trapped in a relationship that you know is doomed, you can often feel like you're setting yourself up for failure. A trap. Bittersweet is the perfect song to soundtrack your hopeless devotion to someone you know won't last for long. There are so many things wrong with this person and this relationship, but you can't pull yourself away. Ever experience that? There is a downside to literally everything, but sometimes you just need that. You have to have that disastrous relationship in order to figure out when things are really really good. Best Lyric: "All that hate is gonna burn you up / it keeps me warm at night." 7. Northern Downpour / Pretty Odd Every break-up or change has that "I'm sad and I need to cry about this for a few minutes" song. Northern Downpour is that song. It's about missing someone. It's about longing for the past. We all go through those moments. Even though we want to be the people who say "fuck 'em!" and move on, we can't always do that. It's not possible or healthy. Sometimes we just have to cry it out and be fond for the times when we were happy. People come and go, and that 's not an easy thing to cope with...but our worlds never stop turning. Best Lyric: "I missed your skin when you were East / You clicked your heels and wished for me." 8. This is Gospel / Too Weird to Live Too Rare to Die Things end for a reason. Whether they were doomed from the start, or just became that way because of new people, new situations, or new personality traits emerging doesn't matter. What matters is that things are falling apart, and rather than committing to polishing the brass on the Titanic, you have to let it go. There is an old adage, "If you love something let it go." And even though the fear of being alone can cripple you, you have to take the dive, and let things go, because somewhere down the line, you'll thank yourself. Best Lyric: If you love me let me go. 9. Hallelujah! / Death of a Bachelor This is the "I'm owning up to my past romantic mistakes and moving on" song. For all the bachelors and bachelorettes who seem to jump from person to person without so much as a passing glance, this one is for you. Reforming your ways and wanting to settle down isn't a crime. "In a state of emergency, who was I trying to be?" If you're trying to fill the void with people, you know there has to be another way to make yourself happy. Each casual affair ends worse than the last, and if you can't figure out why you keep failing...just listen to the music. Best Lyric: "Nobody wants you when you have no heart." 10. New Perspective / Jennifer's Body Soundtrack Okay, so we know what we did wrong. We know all the people we've hurt. We know we need to change...so how? "Stop there and let me correct it / I wanna live a life from a New Perspective." Sometimes when things keep failing, we need to change how we see things. Moving on is all about getting a new perspective on life. We have to look for different qualities in people. We have to grow up a little bit. So if your previous relationships are utter failures, that doesn't have to dictate your romantic future. You have control over this. Give yourself a break and learn from your mistakes. Heartbreak aside...you'll get through it. It's okay, you can move on. Best Lyric: "We move along in some new passion knowing everything is fine.
Yanan [of Pentagon] Calls Out Cube
Pentagon's Yanan has been on hiatus since before Pentagon's last comeback 'Humph!' Yanan was present in the song but not in the music video due to health issues. After that statement we heard nothing from Cube about Yanan's health or the boy in general. When his birthday arrived they still posted about him to celebrate but gave no update on him. A few days ago Yanan took to his personal Weibo account to update us Universe on his current hiatus and situation. Yanan expressed in his post that he's been well for awhile and ready to return to the group but Cube has not replied to when he can return to promoting with the rest of the members. Cube has not responded to Yanan's post and the last thing they've posted about him was that he would not be particpating in Pentagon's world tour awhile back. Furthermore Yanan has been seen hanging out with Hyojong (Dawn/E'Dawn) and Hyuna recently as well. Some people think he is being punished for his continued friendship with the former Cube Entertainment artists. To read Yanan's full Weibo post click here. Cube please don't kick him out of the group, the boys have been through so much already!! I miss Yanan let him come back!! - Universe Citzens: @SugakookieV @mitchix5 @Sailynn @EvilGenius @Starbell808 @KpopBeat @ImHayley @Changkyunie @Infinitysky @Yugykookie97 @Just2BLoved @VeronicaArtino @SerenaArthurs @SweetDuella @BoyGroupKpop @MaeLyn @MelissaGarza @QueenyCrossGene @TaylorHill5 If you'd like to be tagged please let us know!
