That Song That You Can't Get Out of Your Head: "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye feat. Kimbra

There's always that one particular song that randomly pops up in your head. Sometimes these songs don't appeal to you when you first hear then, but gradually you find yourself humming it, and eventually full on belting out the lyrics to no one in particular.

I'd like to share my song of the month thus far and it's "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye feat. Kimbra. The originality of the video is what got me once I heard it a little over two weeks ago and the catchy relatable lyrics stick with you well after the song is over, so without much more of my babbling, check out the video.

Rest In Peace Whitney Houston

It seems like this year is starting off with the loss of the music industry's greatest and most talented singers that there have ever been. Today, we lost the wonderful and multi-talented Whitney Houston. CNN reports that
The entertainer, whose incredible talent was discovered at an early age, was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. (6:55 p.m. ET) at the Beverly Hilton hotel despite resuscitation efforts, a police spokesman said. Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mark Rosen said there were "no obvious signs of criminal intent" and that the cause of her death is being investigated. 
It saddens me to say that the next generation will be missing out on another great. First Etta James and now Whitney Houston. The music world has been dealt another blow equivalent to the loss of Michael Jackson. I send the family my condolences.

I leave you on this note with a video from one of Whitney's last singles and one of my favorite songs by her, ever.
