It’s that time of year. The time of the Best Of list. In this week’s Top 5 Music Countdown, we’re revealing the best albums of 2009, IHHO (In Heather’s Humble Opinion), NATCH.
5. Miike Snow
Swedish + existential & metaphysical lyrics. Gotta have my synths!
4. Fever Ray
Creepy vocals + dense electronica = just like I like it.
3. The Dead Weather
Electric rock and funky backbeats. No bias here. This album/collaboration is one of the best from this year.
2. The xx
Minimal and sexy. Pretty much how I live, nutshelled.
1. Florence + the Machine
Gothic vocals + gorgeous instrumentation. Florence (speaking about her music) says: “I want my music to sound like throwing yourself out of a tree, or off a tall building, or as if you’re being sucked down into the ocean and you can’t breathe.”
Happy New Year!!!

Top 5 Music Countdown: Best Music Videos of 2009! Based on technique, creativity and entertainment value.
[dir. Johan Renck]
Natasha Khan always scores big pointage for creativity. And who doesn’t love a creepy chase video?
4. “When I Grow Up”
[dir. Martin de Thurrah]
Karin Dreijer Andersson (The Knife) hardly lacks imagination – a harlequin dancing on a diving board over a dirty pool? She somehow pulls off weird without pretension.
3. “Two Weeks”
[dir. Patrick Daughters]
Exploding heads are cool! P. Daughters is unquestionably following in Michel Gondry’s quirky footsteps!
2. “The Reeling”
[dir. Hydra (John Hobbs, Ariel Danziger, Sam Stephens)]
A bit too “disco” for me at times, but dig that ripped magazine effect.
This video is my #1 because it involves two of my favorite things: New York City and nudity! (It just sounds good, OK?)

Fun, right?
5. “Sweet Potatoe Pie“
-DominoDo you remember this guy? Popular in the 90s – early 2000s. Shamed for sharking Snoop Doggy Dogg’s rapping style.

This week’s Top 5 Music Countdown is all about my favorite holiday. Halloween!!
While you’re sewing your costume together or mixing up some eyeball punch for your monster bash (see what I did there?) rock out to my play list from beyond the grave! Let’s bypass the obvious spooky tunes like “Monster Mash”, “Ghostbusters” and “Thriller”, shall we? We like to be more original on this show. Enjoy!
5. “Psycho Killer”
Psycho killers are most definitely scary. And evil. Qu’est-ce que c’est?
4. “Devil Inside”
Every single one of us has the devil inside. The devil is evil.
3. “I Put a Spell On You”
-Screaming Jay Hawkins
I’ve always thought that Jay Hawk was possessed. The dirty work of witches. Witches are ugly. And evil.
-Steve MillerMagic is evil.
1. “Somebody’s Watching Me”
-Rockwell Feat. Michael Jackson
Watching someone without them knowing it is unquestionably evil.
Now it’s your turn! I wanna know what spooky songs you listen to this time of year. Leave me your list on my blog at Girllovesmusic.wordpress.com!!
Sometimes you just can’t take the little boy out of the man.
Tommy Lee is out for several shows on the current Crue Fest tour because of burns to his hand. Lee was playing with some sparklers and ended up burning his left hand.
For the last five shows that started on August 14th, Morgan Rose of Sevendust was filling in for Lee. For the next three shows starting on August 21st, Lee will be replaced by Frank Zummo of Street Drum Corp.
Lee for his part is still trying to stay involved. He is coming on stage at the shows to explain to the crowd why he isn’t playing. He interacts during several songs, and does still play piano on “Home Sweet Home.”
In a posting to MySpace, Nikki Sixx wrote the following:
“…accidents do happen and, yes, frustration does happen to everybody, including Tommy, who would rather play drums (even with a damaged hand) than just about anything in the whole world. But following doctor’s orders for a few shows is what we have to (do) right now (or cancel shows). We all wanna say we’re sorry Tommy has to sit out a couple shows, but we hope to have him back up on the drums ASAP.”
As of right now, there is no scheduled time for when Lee will return to the drum kit.

It is hard to pinpoint when heavy metal history is going to be made. However, an upcoming event will surely be one of the few times you know for sure that it will. Judas Priest will be filming their upcoming August 17th performance at the Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, FL, for a DVD that will be included in a forthcoming expanded 30th Anniversary edition of their 1980 classic, British Steel. As with all of their U.S. summer dates this year, Priest has been performing the album in its entirety from front to back. With the band playing the entire British Steel repertoire, the August 17th show at the Seminole Hard Rock Arena in Hollywood, Florida (which will be one of the last of this US Summer 09 tour) will surely capture Priest at their peak!! Not to be missed!!
British Steel has long been considered one of metal’s all-time classics. It was with this release that Priest truly broke through to the masses, with a pair of tracks that have become fixtures on rock radio – the enduring anthems Breaking the Law and Living After Midnight. But like all classic albums, there is not a single weak track detected on British Steel, as evidenced by such standouts as the perennial concert highlight, Metal Gods, as well as Rapid Fire, Grinder, United, and The Rage, among others.
Produced by Tom Allom, British Steel was recorded at Tittenhurst Park in England – which is a mansion owned at the time by former Beatle Ringo Starr, and previously owned by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. In 2001, the album was remastered and reissued with extra bonus tracks, and also, was the subject of an in-depth study as part of the popular Classic Albums DVD series.
