While some songs are educational, other are just fun for kids to sing along to. Which songs are the best for preschool kids? Here are a few that are guaranteed to get them singing and pry them away from the couch.

Three Little Kittens”

Three Little Kitten is another classic childrens song. Anyone who is familiar with the tune, knows that is has a subtle moral to the song. In the song, three little kittens lose their mittens and as a result, aren’t allowed to have any pie for dessert. The kittens find their mittens later on in the song, and are then allowed dessert. There are other variations of the song, including one that says the kittens soiled their mittens instead of lost them.

Mr. Golden Sun”

Mr. Golden Sun is a short song that kids of all ages can learn. The song is pretty repetitive, though, so parents tend to get tired of it but the kids love it. The song features a happy sun and a cheery tune, as well as fun videos online. The best part of the song is that it’s incredibly short and easy to sing.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”

As you may or may not know, I am very passionate about music.  I do hope one day to provide for my family just from music income but I am not there yet.  For the past several years I have been working as a plumber in Macomb County.  The company I work for is Certified Plumbing.

I don’t despise my work by any means and that is why I mention it here.  I just want everyone to know that I do this in my free time in hopes that I provide some value to you.  If you have any ideas on what we should cover next please feel free to send us an email at info@mgmlcband.com.

Music notes sign

The most popular songs that were almost not released.

As music enthusiasts, we like to think that we can always recognize when a song will be a hit. Unfortunately, this isn’t always true. Some hit songs were so widely rejected among producers that they almost never left the studio. Which ones? Here are a few.

I Can’t Get No Satisfaction”

This Rolling Stones hit was nearly shut down by its creator, Keith Richards. The day after Richards came up with the title, he and Mick Jagger fleshed out the song and low and behold, Richards was not happy with it. He complained that the song sounded too “folksy”, and would later complain that he considered it “just a working title”. Even after the song was released (thanks to the good taste of the band’s producers), Richards still wasn’t happy.

Somebody That I Used to Know”

In 2011, Gotye released his hit “Somebody That I Used to Know” and despite the song being a massive success, the artist wasn’t happy with it at first. He says that when he first wrote it, he didn’t think it was interesting enough, and then, later on when he added the female vocals, says he couldn’t find the right girl to do the duet with. When the song was eventually complete, he almost didn’t include it on his CD.

Blurred Lines”

Robin Thicke has a hard time getting this hit to launch. He says that his record company didn’t get the song and refused to pay for the music video. Luckily, Remy Martin was supportive of the soon-to-be hit and paid for the video to be produced.

Billie Jean”

Micheal Jackson was known for his chart topping hits. One of them, “Billie Jean” almost flopped, though, because the singer’s producer, Quincy Jones, didn’t like the song. Jackson loved it, however, and eventually got his way.

Got Money”

This Lil Wayne hit single was passed around a time or two before it was eventually released. The song was originally written for Pitbull, who didn’t like the song and refused to tie himself to it. From here, the song was passed by a few different people before landing in Lil Wayne’s hands and becoming a hit.

Applause”

Lady Gag’s hit song “Applause” came close to not being launched. Gaga, after hearing the finished song, wasn’t a fan of it and didn’t want to include it on any of her CD’s. With a bit of coaxing from her producer and record company, the song was eventually released.

Some songs, like the ones above, had a rough start- but we’re glad that they made it onto the radio.

Has Avril Lavigne been replaced!?

Elvis is back in the building- but Avril Lavigne is out, according to conspiracy theorists. A Brazilian blog claims that the 31-year-old pop star died 10 years ago and has since been replaced by a twin named Melissa Vandella. Melissa Vandella, according to theorists, was Avril’s best friend before her passing so she became the obvious choice to be her permanent lookalike and essentially transform into Avril.

The website has various pictures of the singer posted, claiming that in the pictures, her birthmarks have changed. The blog also claims that the singer has shrunk since 2002, going from 1.58 meters tall to 1.55 meters tall.

Looking at how the new Avril poses for photos, it’s been said that she sports a morbid and depressed expression and often looks down when her picture is taken, as if to say something.

It also reports changes in her voice and handwriting.

The blog writer has also analyzed her hit songs “My Happy Ending” and “Nobody’s Home”, claiming that the songs point towards the singer spiraling into a depression and committing suicide. When her family discovered her death, according to the blog, they covered it up and hired a look-alike (Vandella) to pose as their beloved family member.

The most convincing evidence comes in when we stop and think about her facial structure.

Looking back at pictures of Avril from 2002, and then again at recent photos, it appears that Avril’s nose has changed shape. Whether this is due to the “imposter” having a slightly different facial shape, or simply due to a surgical procedure, it’s easy to spot the difference.

Her eyebrows are also noticeably different. This, however, could be due to plucking, waxing, and other forms of eyebrow care and not necessarily due to her being a different person.

In addition, there are photos on the blog that show side views of the singer and have circles where the moles and birthmarks are different, or nonexistent.

Most die-hard Avril fans have written the theory off as a hoax, claiming that their favorite singer would never get to the point of suicide and that the theory surrounding her is only making her more famous. Her fans across YouTube have taken to their cameras to voice their opinions. Shane Dawson is one of these fans, and he hasn’t fallen for the theory.

What do you think? Has Avril been replaced or is the theory just a theory?

4 Concerts that turned deadly

Concerts are a fun way to interact with our favorite artists. They give us a place to let loose, have fun, and make new memories- but for some concerts, things get out of hand. In fact, some concerts end in tragedy. Here are 4 examples of concerts that went wrong.

Altamont Free- 1969

The rock and roll decade of the sixties came to a close with the Altamont Free concert that was held in northern California. The concert had an estimated 300,000 attendees and hit bands such as The Rolling Stones and Grateful Dead. Blood hit the fan during the Rolling Stones’ set when an attendee by the name of Meredith Hunter, who had been previously punched in the face, came back for vengeance and brought a gun. By the end of the set, there was a total of four deaths and 850 injuries.

The Who- 1979

On December 3rd, 1979, The Who was set to play in Cincinnati, Ohio. The concert had a first come first serve arrangement for seating, and the arrangement proved to be deadly when a mob rushed the glass doors of the venue and 11 people were killed due to lack of air. It’s said that they died from being pressed against the glass doors and being unable to get adequate oxygen. In addition to the deaths, there were two dozen injuries.

Monsters of Rock- 1988

In 1988, the Monsters of Rock festival was held in England. The festival was held to celebrate rock ad heavy metal music and had been around for 30 years prior to 1988. The 1988 celebration turned into chaos when 2 attendees were crushed and died of asphyxiation during a Guns N’ Roses set. The festival was put on hold until 1990 when it made a return with new safety precautions such as a limit on the number of people that were allowed to attend.

Ariana Grande- 2017

An Ariana Grande concert in Manchester turned into a gruesome scene when a suicide bomber planned and executed an explosion that resulted in 22 deaths. The pop star apologized for the tragedy through her twitter account saying “…from the bottom of my heart, I am so, so, sorry”. The explosion killed men, women, and children, with the youngest victims being 8-10 years old.

Concerts have been going from joyous to tragic since the beginning of their time. Luckily, though, not all concerts end in death and for every deadly concert, there are dozens of redeeming shows.
