My Review for: Now 15


OK, I have written a review of Now 15, sort of, on Now 14, but, this time, im not gonna say if its a surprise or not a surprise, ill just say if its cool or not. Oh, and, Im editing my perdictions for Now 16, too, with just 20 tracks. OK, here goes.
1. No Doubt- It's My Life (5/5) A bit overplayed, but, I love it. Ive never heard the orignal by Talk Talk, tho.2. Britney Spears- Toxic (3/5) I DID love this by Brit at 1st, but, it got COMPLETLEY OVERPLAYED, and, I got soo sick of it.3. Ludacris featuring Shawna- Stand Up (5/5) Overplayed, but, its me fav song from Ludacris. The REAL follow up to Whats Your Fantasy, cuz, hes with Shawna on both.4. Chingy featuring Snoop Dogg and Ludacris- Holidae In (5/5) AIYAH! Back-2-Back Ludacris!! Cool anywayz. See my comments on this for my Chingy review.5. Westside Connection featuring Nate Dogg- Gangsta Nation (5/5) COOL JAM! I like Westside Connection, and, besides, Ice Cube's in it! Nate Dogg does an infectionus chorus, too! 6. Sarah Connor- Bounce (4/5) Cool dance song, and, Sarah Connor is hot, but, it gets annoying once in a while. And, she has the same name as the Termionater's wife!!! EEEK!!7. Black Eyed Peas- Shut Up (4/5) This rarely got radio play, but, its a good underground tune by Black Eyed Peas! Fergie is awsome in this.8. Nick Cannon featuring R. Kelly- Gigolo (5/5) Sorry, but, I actually like it when Nick Cannon raps. Hes funny when he does. He does sound like a Fabolous ripoff, but, so what. 9. Beyonce- Me, Myself, and I (3/5) I liked this at first, but, it got pretty boring. Sorry, Beyonce.10. Baby Bash featuring Perla Cruz and Russel Lee- Shorty Doowop (5/5) I love this as much as I do on Suga Suga! A very minor hit, completley sadly. Yeah, the girl is Perla Cruz, but, I wonder who she really is? And, Russel Lee is a christian/soul singer, I think. WHY WASNT THIS HUGE AT ALL?! I love this song soo much! Thank god they put it here tho.11. Eamon- F**k It (I Don't Want You Back) (4/5) I like Eamon, but, this was overplayed, and, the editing is annoying sometimes. 12. Jessica Simpson- With You (4/5) MOST OVERPLAYED SONG EVA!! I'm not THAT tired of it, thoh.13. Norah Jones- Sunrise (4/5) Good song by Nora! A little too folky, tho. Her new stuff is alright.14. Sheryl Crow- The First Cut Is The Deepest (5/5) LUV DIS 1, also! Good song by Sheryl. I havent heard the 2 orignal versions by Cat Stevens & Rod Stewart, tho.15. FeFe Dobson- Everything (5/5) Great song, too! Fefe is pretty good, but, this was a minor hit too, sadly.16. Three Days Grace- (I Hate) Everything About You (4/5) OK song. It dont get me pumped up dat much, but, its a good mad song about revenge. This kinda samples Seether's Fine Again.17. blink-182- Feelin' This (4/5) Love this one by Blink, but, I Miss U is better. 18. Good Charlotte- Hold On (5/5) 2nd best song by GC. 19. Fuel- Falls On Me (5/5) Was a big hit, but, hardly gets any radio play. Why?! This is one of the best songs from Fuel! Im glad theyre back!20. Five For Fighting- 100 Years (4/5) A pretty good way to end da album, this is a very sad song, plus, it puts u to sleep often.
OK, next are my new predictions for Now 16:
1. Chingy/Jason Weaver- One Call Away2. Beyonce- Naughty Girl3. Cassidy/R. Kelly/Trina- Hotel (Remix)4. Jay-Z- Dirt Off Your Shoulder5. Black Eyed Peas- Hey Mama6. Mario Winans/P. Diddy- I Don't Wanna Know7. Petey Pablo- Freak-A-Leek8. Ludacris/Sandy Coffie- Splash Waterfalls9. Frankee- F.U.R.B.10. N.E.R.D.- She Wants To Move11. Janet- I Want You12. Usher- Burn13. JoJo- leave (Get Out)14. Jessica Simpson- Take My Breath Away15. Liz Phair- Extroidnary16. Blink-182- I Miss You17. 3 Doors Down- Away From The Sun18. Incubus- Megalomaniac19. Darkness- I Believe In A Thing Called Love20. Hoobastank- The Reason

Wonderful


I saw this show at the York Theatre in December and fell in love with it. My best friend was an assitant for the show and told me I needed to see it.
I just loved it. I know my musical theatre, there were only a few jokes I missed when I saw it. Joanne Bogart and Eric Rockwell did an amazing job with lyrics, book, and even some of the songs are quite beautiful.
It's an ingenious idea that was wonderfully performed. I'm a Sondheim fan, so A Little Complex is my favorite segment, but the Andrew Lloyd Webber skit is hysterical too.

Title: String Quartet Tribute to Warren Zevon: Dad Get Me

Rating: 2/5

The most lackluster "tribute" ever produced...


The version of "Roland..." presented here is the only thing that keeps this from a 1 star rating. It's dull and lacks any of the intensity or originalitly that Zevon brought to the original recordings of these songs. "Enjoy Every Sandwhich" has some great moments and heartfelt tributes, this is an insult to a genius.
