Bieber Buzz Brings Busy Blog Day

We would like to thank everyone for being a good sport yesterday, unfortunately (for some of us) Justin Bieber and Paul McCartney are not collaborating on an early Beatles cover album. This was a little bit of yellow journalism in the spirit of April Fools Day. We hope you enjoyed this and are not too disappointed by the truth.

We have some interesting goings on here that in the next few weeks we hope will take off:

Good Music

We invite all of our readers to submit their favorite songs via comment or on our Facebook page, and we will put it on our list and keep it their forever. You can check out the list of songs, as well as a more detailed description of what the list is all about here.

We Want to Feature Your Music

That’s right. We are looking for fresh and unique content to keep on our site and we would like it to be about your music. You can help us get some awesome stuff to write about as well as photos, videos, and even your songs while we can give your music another outlet for exposure. We can’t promise that you will blow up into the next big thing, but we can certainly help you show your music to people who haven’t heard it yet.

We would like to perform an interview with you, and your group (if applicable) and write as much awesome stuff about you as possible, as well as periodic blog updates to keep people notified of your upcoming shows/music-related-events etc. The idea is that the more exposure we can get for your music, the more traffic we will also generate for ourselves.

We have some big ideas that we are getting pretty fired up about, and we will not reject anyone who is interested in doing this %100 and is also serious about their music. (Those are the only requirements)

If you are interested in doing this please contact us at our Facebook page and we can start collaborating on this.

Thanks for reading,
Selective Listening

Ps. We will still write about all the stuff we usually do, that’s kind of our thing.

Bieber set to release early Beatles cover album

The white smoke is rising, and the new Pope of Pop is being heralded! The recent dispute over the rightful heir of all things catchy and romantic will soon be over, which started with the death of the previous King of Pop. The current royal bloodline started in 1963 as the Beatles replaced Elvis as the pop icon of the world with an endless slew of #1 catchy love song after another. The second was crowned in 1983, as “cute Beatle” Paul McCartney mentored rumored “king of Pop” Michael Jackson and collaborated on music numbers, legitimizing his claim. His reign was unquestionable as he subsequently bought-out the Beatles music, essentially hoarding all and every right and claim to royalty for himself. Elvis died in 1977, McCartney, although still prolific, has failed to re-take the world by storm, Jackson has, too, deceased.

The state of chaos that has erupted has left many worried and confused, and the World of Pop Music has been lost amid a sea of auto-tuned one-hit wonders, lackluster comebacks, dime a dozen Disney acts, and very recently a fall into debauchery, with vying pop queens trying to out slut each other.  There seemed no hope, and such was confirmed as the Black Eye Peas effectively gave a eulogy to pop music at the Super Bowl halftime show. But oh ye of little faith! Recent leaks have announced that the wait is over: Justin Beiber is set to record a collection of the early pop songs that put Sir Paul McCartney on the throne. What makes this a legitimate rise to proper power in place of a coup d’état is that Sir Paul will be PERSONALLY seeing to the projects completion as the producer.

When asked about it, McCartney had this to say, “I think the kid is wonderful, and, you know, he’s really got talent and music could use a figure like him to center itself around, much like the aftereffects of Beatlemania, with all the bands going in the right direction. Pop music, you know, hasn’t changed that much since the early days. I mean, John and I wanted to emulate the teen idols of our day, so we sat down and tried to write catchy tunes that would be commercially successful, so I really don’t see the cause of the uproar over stuff like that by people who look up to The Beatles.”

Although the recoding is being kept secret, leaks and rumors have suggested the track listing will include such classics as “Love me Do”, “Please Please Me”, “She Loves You” and one of the more sweeter pop cuts from their debut album, which only seems fitting as it will be the first public statement by the new official Pope of Pop.
