5 Songs Inspired by Dodgy Managers

This morning I was doing a marathon run through the discography of “They Might Be Giants”, and I was in stitches most of the time. I hadn’t listened to most of their stuff in a long while, and when I came across “Hey Mr. DJ” on the Miscellaneous T compilation it occurred to me that it would be fun to make a list of songs inspired by dodgy managers.

Agree? Disagree? Feel like emulating Pete Townshend and bashing someone with your guitar over the head? Well, why don’t you leave a comment below instead and get things out of your system?

Another sign that the world is ending soon. While Lady Gaga recently conquered the position as the most followed Twitter user, Canadian sensation Justin Bieber has a record of his own: he is the most listed Twitterer.

Yes, that’s right. Bieber beat not only Lady Gaga but also Britney Spears and Ashton “The King Of Twitter” Kutcher.

Looks like the Mayans got it definitely right. 2012 is going to be the year to wave our last goodbyes.

Below you have a video of Justin doing his thang.

This is a brand new music site that I caught wind up of today. To be frank, I think it really has what it takes to make it into the big time.
