Songs with Baby in the Title



It's clear that the word "baby" must have some magical connotation in music circles.  Either that or when people run out of words to use "baby" is the default fallback.

It's crazy how many songs are titled "baby" or use the word in the song title.  Oh you like that song "Baby,"  which one?  That's kind of a loaded question.

Is it Brandy's "Baby,"  Justin Bieber's "Baby,"  Ashanti's "Baby,"  Amy Grant's  "Baby, Baby,"  or TLC's "Baby-Baby-Baby"?

Oh wait maybe you mean, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles "Ooo Baby, Baby," Shai's "Baby I'm Yours," Whitney Houston's "I'm Your Baby Tonight,"  The Supremes "Baby Love,"  or The Four Tops "Baby, I Need Your Loving."

Don't worry baby, we'll figure out which song it is.

Haim - "Don't Save Me"


I've highlighted the band Haim before.  And if you don't trust my humble opinion, Emma Watson likes them too. 

They still don't have a full album, but are back with a video for the song "Don't Save Me" off their new EP.

Haim shows their love for R&B with a video that uses the classic 90s R&B music video staple of a staged basketball game and gratuitous shots of people dunking.  

If the 90s taught us anything, it's that the majority of life's problems could be solved by a basketball game set to music.

The Thought Process Behind ZzzQuil



It's as if Vicks had a board meeting and was like "you know a lot of people just misuse NyQuil as a sleeping aid even when they're not sick."

Then one guy suggests, "We could just repackage the same product and name it ZzzQuil so people wouldn't feel as bad about abusing the product."

I predict a sharp decline in NyQuil sales as people no longer have to pretend they are buying it as a cold medication.  This about sums up its effectiveness on a cold.

The next evolution occurs when companies realize people use cold medicine to make meth so they cut out the middle man and do it themselves in a Gus Fring style lab.
