Jailhouse Rock starring Elvis

It was Elvis' 3rd film and was released by MGM on October 30, 1957. Elvis plays "Vince Everett," an ex-convict working in the music industry, and a character analogous to Presley's then public image. After going to jail for a bar fight he did not start, Everett meets Hunk Houghton in prison, and the two men form a bond. Houghton, a washed-up country singer, teaches Everett to play an old guitar, and to sing a few songs. Upon his release, Everett lands work at night clubs, but not singing. He meets Peggy Van Alden, a record company talent scout, who allows Everett to record a song. They bring his demo to an executive at a small record label, who then records the exact arrangement with one of his established stars. The interesting angle from our point of view is that Everett and Van Alden then start their own label to bring Everett's records to the public, and fame, riches, and a film career ensue.

Song Of Trees “Only Road”

This should be the Nizlopi of 2011.

Stunning animation, brilliant song and excellent vocals by singer/songwriter Kevin Osborne aka Song Of Trees.

The entire video cost Kevin just £40 to make. Not bad at all. We love this one here at Myhotmusic and believe this should

be the next Christmas number one.

DMSquared “Nigeria Go Survive Reloaded (feat Jodie).

After watching scenes from the London riots aka the Footlocker riots we thought that the yoof in England could learn a thing or two from DMSquared and his posse who live in a country where surviving each day is a genuine struggle for many. Instead of looting and burning their own neighbourhood they have remade a classic song and attempt to rally the youth to build the nation.

We have featured this song previously on Myhotmusic but it is such a good song and an example of the growing Naija Hiphop scene which should have a few crossover hits in the near future.


Rebecca Black “My Moment”

She's arguably the most famous independent artist at the moment and I know some of you are wondering why she's even considered an artist. Her new single sans Ark Music has garnered over 23 million views and climbing. We think it's lost all the appeal of "Friday" and is a bit too obvious but fair play to her.

Rebecca Black “Friday”

Why people are missing the point about Rebecca Black’s song "Friday". It’s gone viral for a reason and this is the thing that has been lost by many an artist. Friday polarises people. They either like or or hate it and in the new economy of the videosphere, views count more than critical acclaim. Ark Records and Rebecca will be laughing all the way to the bank.

The Scarletz “Messed Up”

London girl group The Scarletz attempt to bring reggae back to the charts. Good luck to them. Their debut single "Messed Up" is pretty good, lots of lovely harmonies and it actually has a more contemporary reggae style to it. The girls take their influence from Madness, The Specials and Lily Allen, and while we think that is laudable of them, they should also give some serious listen to some of reggae’s greats like Ken Boothe, Bob Marley, Marcia Griffiths and Aswad. But props to them for setting themselves apart from the rest of the mob let’s hope Island Records pick them up. Pre-order "Messed Up" now. The Scarletz
