Music by Videosuploaded123 Get your tissue boxes ready. On Wednesday, the BRIT Awards remembered the countless industry vets we lost this past year. Specifically, the awards show focused on the tragic death of George Michael . In case you forgot, the Faith singer passed away this past Christmas due to heart failure. George touched many people's lives, which explains why his former Wham bandmate Andrew Ridgeley and the duo's backing vocalists, Helen Pepsi" DeMacque and Shirlie Holliman , got teary eyed while speaking about their fallen friend onstage. The emotional moments didn't stop there though as Chris Martin also performed a musical tribute to Michael during the show! Be sure to ch-ch-check out the touching tribute for yourself (above)!

Hopefully by now you've seen The Lego Batman Movie and reveled in it's delightful musical finale , but what you might not know is that it's been done before by actual humans. In 2012, internet sensation StarKid (the team behind a viral musical about a certain boy wizard ) staged Holy Musical B@man! , a superhero amalgam that predates even the first Avengers movie and ends in an all-out Justice League musical number, "Super Friends." SEE ALSO: 'Lego Batman' has a lot of fun mocking 'Batman v Superman,' but there's no beef there In the musical, as with Lego Batman , Batman (Joe Walker) learns to make friends, to love and appreciate Robin (Nick Lang) and Alfred (Chris Allen). The song starts around 2:52 and dare we say it's as infectious as "Friends Are Family"? If Batman and Superman can be friends twice over, so can these fabulous tunes about super friends. Read more...

Former 1970s teen idol and The Partridge Family star David Cassidy reportedly stunned his fans with a train wreck concert performance on Saturday night. While appearing at The Canyon Club in Agoura, California, which often plays host to retro acts, Cassidy appeared to slur his words, sing off key, ramble while telling stories to the audience, and forget song lyrics. Fan videos from the event also showed Cassidy, 66, fall off the stage and hit himself in the face with a microphone. PHOTOS: Drunken Disasters The Stars Didnt Want You To See Cassidy, who played the oldest of the five musical kids of widowed mom Shirley Jones on The Partridge Family, which ran from 1970 to 1974, recently announced his retirement.

The trailer for Song for Song opens with Ryan Gosling's character flirting with a girl at a party it's awfully familiar to a certain Oscar-bound musical, especially when you learn that Gosling plays a talented pianist with big dreams who falls in love. You'll even hear him singing at the end of the trailer about the two lovers. "We thought we could just roll, tumblr, song to song, kiss to kiss," narrates Emma St... no, Rooney Mara.

If you were a child of the late 1980s or early 1990s, the chances are you'll be in either the Super Nintendo or the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive camp. Other 16-bit games consoles existed, but these were the ones that mattered ! The extra power of the Nintendo's souped-up 16-bit 6502 derivative or the Sega's 68000 delivered a gaming experience that, while it might not have been quite what you'd have found in arcades of the day, was at least close enough that you could pretend it was. The distinctive sound of consoles from that era has gained a significant following in the chiptunes community, with an active scene composing fresh pieces, and creating projects working with them. One such project is [jarek319]'s Sega Genesis native hardware chiptune synthesiser , in which music stored as VGM files on a MicroSD card are parsed by an ATSAMD21G18 processor and sent to a YM2612 and an SN76489 as you'd have found in the original console.
