There have been many Slinky theme songs, but when the Slinky theme song gets stuck in my head this is the Slinky theme song I sing. My daughter was given a large plastic rainbow slinky for her birthday. None of the kids understood why I immediately broke into song.

Haim is back with, "Right Now," the perfect song to get you through lonely, hot summer nights. The video was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, who apparently was their mom's art student when he was a kid, as the band told Zane Lowe. "She would always talk about this one kid named Paul. That she loved this kid Paul he was very energetic, artistic, vivacious," said Alana. "We'd turn the TV on and Boogie Nights would come on or Magnolia and our mom was like, 'oh that's Paul's movie.' That being Paul Thomas Anderson. We were like mom are you talking about Paul Thomas Anderson? and she was like 'yes that is Paul, I Taught Paul.'" Read more...

WHAT: The first new song in years from sisterly indie-pop trio, HAIM. WHO: Director Paul Thomas Anderson. WHY WE CARE: HAIM didnt exactly pull a disappearing act after releasing their debut album nearly four years ago. They touredand took a lot of Instagrams with Taylor Swift , and released the occasional life-giving remix. In terms of a new albumor even the promise of a release date, though, HAIM has been nowhere to be seen. Until now. Following the addition of some mysterious billboards in LA earlier this month, the Haim sisters have returned this morning with a brand new song and a video by GOAT -contenderfilmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson. The last time Anderson went behind the camera for a music video, he emerged with Radioheads hidden message-laden visual puzzle, Daydreaming. For HAIMs slow-burning Right Now, hegoes simpler but equally alluring, with a video that follows the band as they record the song live in studio, seemingly in one take.

Users connect their smartphone to the speaker using Bluetooth, with the only physical port on the P2 being a small charging port for its internal battery. "A simple double tap anywhere on the front grille of the compact speaker will play or pause whatever song is playing", says Pocket-Lint . You can also skip through tracks by shaking the device. The Beoplay app lets you "access personal assistants such as Siri and Google Assistant to play music", the site adds, as well as "change the sound profile of the speaker using the ToneTouch feature". Bang Olufsen has also designed the P2 to comfortably fit into the user's hand. Digital Trends says its minimalist styling makes it "incredibly light" and "easy to slip into your bag, or even into the pocket of your jacket". Under its aluminium enclosure, the site says the speaker houses a pair of "15-watt Class D amps driving a newly designed mid-woofer" derived from the company's A1 portable unit.

There's no shortage of heartbreaking moments in 13 Reasons Why , but one particular one ties the first season together neatly in a way most of the plot doesn't. BuzzFeed found one Tumblr user's observation that the song "A 1000 Times," which plays over a fantasy sequence of Clay and Hannah dating, contains a clue about Nov. 10 the day of the depositions in the final episodes. SEE ALSO: '13 Reasons Why' brought in therapy dogs to help actors http://itsnotaboutangxls.tumblr.com/post/159563753310/guys One thing is for sure: It's not a coincidence. Just take a look at the song's lyrics : In a previous article , I pointed out a few of the show's less-inspired writing decisions, such as using Tony to explain all the weighty themes instead of the old "show, don't tell." But bringing things full circle is an evergreen narrative technique for show finales; Lost would often return to the same character flashback or locations and bring back previous musical themes as a through-line.

“It will also affect the livelihood of its people. So, we have to be cautious about these harsh sanctions, which should only be imposed as a last resort." No longer lips and teeth China has long been seen as one of North Korea’s closest allies, ties that used to frequently be described as close as “lips and teeth,” but relations have taken a downturn since Kim Jong Un came to power. Six-party talks on ending North Korea’s nuclear weapons program have been stalled since late 2007. And Kim Jong Un has shown little interest in returning to talks. Since taking over, he has carried out three nuclear tests and more than a dozen missile launches. Military analysts say another nuclear test could be held soon. Unlike his father, Kim Jong Un has not visited China. His uncle, Kim Song Thaek, who had close ties with Beijing and was an advocate of opening up the reclusive country’s economy, was executed in late 2013.

And it was within a couple months of Lou’s passing and everybody kept asking us what we thought and what we think and what it means to us.” He explained the song is about how they got taken advantage of in their careers, but fans will have to wait until the song is released this summer for the specifics!

Reach out and touch faith. So goes the chorus of Depeche Modes biggest hit, Personal Jesus. Its a song, like Blue Monday by New Order and Toxic by Britney Spears, that everyone likes and you dont have to be all goth about it. Sadly, I never had a goth phase, my sunny disposition and lack of hair on top probably didnt help. And no, a fondness for the musical whining of Robert Smith does not a goth make. There must, however, be some committed goths working in the watch...

Google is marking the anniversary of South Africa's first post-apartheid election on Thursday with a Doodle honoring 19th century composer Enoch Sontonga, who wrote a song that is now part of the country's current national anthem. Sontonga, who was also a choirmaster and poet, composed the song Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika (God Bless Africa) in 1897. It became popular over the years, according to Google, and was even recorded in a London studio in 1923. Singing the song became an act of defiance during apartheid, the South African government notes on its website , and became the anthem for the African National Congress. Because of this connection the song was banned during apartheid, as the Guardian noted in 2013. In 1997, parts of Nkosi Sikeleil' iAfrika were fused with the country's other anthem, Die Stem (The Call of South Africa), to become the current national anthem of South Africa Freedom Day, on April 27, is a public holiday in South Africa.

Think you've heard enough of James Blunt's 2004 hit "You're Beautiful"? Fair enough, it's highly annoying. But if self-effacing tweets are anything to go by, nobody is more sick of the song than James Blunt himself. So when the British pop artist sat down with Australian comedian Tom Gleeson for an intentionally cringey interview segment on The Weekly called "Hard Chat," he gave as well as he got. And he got a lot of mocking. SEE ALSO: PSA: Australia is only dangerous 'if you're a dumbass' The resulting interview is peppered with p*ss-taking, and even Gleeson struggles to keep it completely together as Blunt tears his own career to shreds, and proclaims himself a musical genius in equal measure.

I'm not in the mood to write a 'feeling-sorry-for-myself' song.... You can't have the good without the bad. And that's what the song ended up being about." Yeehaw!!
