That Song: Sneaker Pimps "6 Underground"



The Sneaker Pimps "6 Underground" is that song you hear and recognize every so often, but probably have no idea who sings it or what it's called.

Released in 1996, "6 Underground" helped British trip hop group The Sneaker Pimps become one hit wonders when it gained notoriety after being used in the 1997 movie "The Saint."

Making it the only thing people wanted to remember from that terrible movie.

The song was used in multiple movies during the late 90s including "Cruel Intentions," although I think most people remember as the soundtrack to the entrance of Amanda Beckett in "Can't Hardly Wait."

How Orange is the New Black is Like Lost


Like some people I was initially skeptical of Netflix's "Orange is the New Black," but I was pleasantly surprised with how good it was.

Over the course of watching it, I realized that it reminded me of another show: "Lost" minus the sci-fi element.

I know it sounds kind of crazy at first, but hear me out.  The shows have similar DNA upon closer inspection.

Greatest Proposal Ever with Saxophone



Video Thumbnail: ”Amores Verdaderos” Gets SubtitledThe Soup Blog transforms a romantic telenovela proposal into a perverted luncheon--just by adding subtitles! Take a look.


To anybody who ever thought, "know what would make this marriage proposal better, a random saxophone player," your dreams have come true.

The Soup Blog found this great clip of a proposal from the telenovela "Amores Verdaderos" that features a picnic, a random women playing saxophone, and an owl.

In case it's hard to follow, the Soup Blog provided some subtitles.  

I assume this is every woman's ideal proposal.  There's absolutely nothing creepy about a saxophone woman randomly appearing in a field and having no concept of personal space.

The woman must have some repressed rage about the proposal that she's trying to make the couple go deaf by playing the saxophone in their ears.  

Either that or she's been waiting in the field so long that she's gone feral.

This clip also scientifically proves that owls loves saxophones.

Jimmy Fallon, Robin Thicke & The Roots Perform "Blurred Lines" With Classroom Instruments



Jimmy Fallon and the Roots convinced Robin Thicke to do one of their fun song covers with classroom instruments for his song "Blurred Lines" with great results.

As usual, the Roots prove how talented they are by making "Blurred Lines" just as catchy with these simple instruments.

In addition, the rap that replaces T.I.'s verse is better than the original and even in a cramped space, Thicke can hit that falsetto.

Surprisingly, the xylophone fills in quite well for the bass line.  Then again, the xylophone is like the saxophone of classroom instruments as it always delivers.

Although, it is a little weird to have grown men singing a sex-charged song with lyrics like "I know you want it" set to children's instruments.

But let's just ignore that fact for now and enjoy.
