The Friday Five: Blink-182 Videos

We’re still fangirling over Blink-182’s tour and album announcement.   Tickets for their Summer tour go on sale this week!  Check out the tour dates HERE!  Here’s a playlist of some of our favorite classic Blink videos.

1.”What’s My Age Again?”

2. “All The Small Things”

3. “The Rock Show”

4. “First Date”

5. “I Miss You”

The Friday Five: Good Charlotte

Good Charlotte are back with a new single,  and are heading out on tour with All Time Low in the UK!   We guess all that writing with 5SOS inspired them to venture back into the “mall punk” sound they helped craft in the early 2000s.

1.”The Anthem”

2. “Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous”

3. “Girls & Boys”

4. “Little Things”

5. “I Just Wanna Live” 

BONUS: “Makeshift Love”

The Friday Five: Carnival Music Videos

One of the best things about Summer is the outdoor fairs and carnivals that pop up all over the country.  And what’s a carnival without some great music?  Here are some of our favorite carnival-themed videos!

1. Jordan Knight – “Give It To You”
Our formative years consisted of calling into TRL constantly to vote for this  video. Looking back, we totally made the right decision because this is THE only ‘carnival’ video that matters.

2. Big Time Rush – “Boyfriend”
Learn from James Diamond.  If your bae can’t make it to the carnival, you can always find a nice plant to go on rides with you.

3. Mariah Carey – “Fantasy”
This video is definitely a sweet, sweet fantasy, baby!

4. The Vamps – “Last Night”
We love The Vamps idea for this video: let’s use our entire budget and build ourselves a carnival for the video shoot!  We’d totally do the same.

5. NKOTB – “Please Don’t Go Girl”
With Wahlburgers opening in Coney Island soon, we can only hope the band stops by to re-enact scenes from this video.  Can we ride the Wonder Wheel with Joey?

The Friday Five: The Lonely Island

The Lonely Island just started production on their new movie, a mockumentary about a boyband reunion and parody of fluffy music documentaries, produced by Judd Apatow.  This sounds amazing, and we can’t help but hope that Samberg’s BFF Justin Timberlake will make an appearance along with some of his former bandmates!  After all, Lance and Joey are actors, too (see the 2001 masterpiece “On The Line.”).  And Justin is a respected actor and all now, but never forget where he got his acting start – “Model Behavior” playing a teen heartthrob.   From the superficial stars to the real ones.

Here are some of our favorite tracks by The Lonely Island (excluding the ones featuring JT because duh.)

1. “Throw It On The Ground”
This ain’t my Dad, this is a cell phone!

2. “YOLO” featuring Adam Levine & Kendrick Lamar
You Oughta Look Out!

3. “I’m On A Boat” featuring T-Pain
If you claim to not sing this every time you’re on/near a boat, you’re lying.

4. “Jack Sparrow” featuring Michael Bolton
We’d be okay with Michael Bolton making an appearance in the movie, too.

5. “The Creep” featuring Nicki Minaj
They’ve got the boyband dance moves nailed.

The Friday Five: Mariah Carey’s #1s

Few artists have had as much chart topping success as Mariah Carey. She ranks in second place in the most #1 singles of any artist, just behind The Beatles. She just announced her upcoming second full album of her 18 #1 hits, named “#1 to Infinity.”   Here are our all time favorite Mariah #1s and music videos!

1. “Fantasy”

This video is basically our Summer outfit and activity goals.

2. “One Sweet Day” featuring Boyz II Men

Why aren’t there more boyband/pop star duets? We need an *NSYNC/Britney single. The closest we have is Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers “We Got The Party”

3. “Heartbreaker” featuring Jay-Z

Definitely one of the greatest music videos of the TRL era (RIP). We’d still vote for it today.

4. “Honey”

We love that this video is a mini Bond movie.  They just don’t make music videos like this anymore!

5. “Always Be My Baby”

Mariah will always be our #1
