)

)

3/13 – Chris Malinchak recently debuted at #2 on the UK singles chart with this one and fwiw, Adele tweeted about it!

)

3/14 – Earlier this week on-air, I referenced the ridiculous Big Data video for “Dangerous” with its slo-mo running females (even spoofs can be click-bait, fair warning!), and now here’s a better song but similar concept (minus the headbutting) with Minnesota singer/songwriter Haley Bonar.  Haley definitely leaves a lot up to artistic interpretation, whereas Big Data goes way over the top to make his point (in a not-really-SFW kinda way). Can’t wait to hear more from Haley’s new album out in May…
