Throwing It Back: “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) – Backstreet Boys

For today’s Throwback Thursday we’re taking it back to 1997 with the Backstreet Boys and their greatest hit, “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).”

It also gets us in the spirit of Halloween being that this fun-filled, crazy, dancing vid has a slew of devious creatures that will get us ready for the holiday. We see A.J. like the Phantom of the Opera, Nick like a mummy, Kevin like Dr. Jekyll & Hyde, Brian as a werewolf and Howie as a vampire. This song is my favorite BSB jam and it will always get the party started.

Watch the video and relive their awesomeness!

Happy Halloween

Music Monday: Bruno Mars – 2014 Halftime Performance

Killing it doesn’t even begin to describe what Bruno Mars did at the 48th Super Bowl Halftime Show.

While many were thinking it was never going to measure up to last year’s Beyoncé show, they were right. But, in all honesty Bruno Mars did a spectacular job and it was classic and beautiful. No raunchy, no twerking, just plain, good ‘ol fashion music with a little soul.

I mean did you see his sweet dance moves and snazzy gold blazer? His voice speaks volumes and his melodies transcend any booty shakin beat. This was an outstanding performance, suitable for anyone and everyone. The Red Hot Chili Peppers added a rock vibe but we know it was Bruni’s show and I must say I enjoyed every minute of it.

Re-watch or watch his performance for the first time and just sit back and relax.

#MM: “The Monster” Music Video – Eminem Feat. Rihanna

Not too long ago we heard “The Monster” by Eminem featuring Rihanna and now the music video has premiered and it is just as outstanding as we had imagined.

First we get a minute intro that is intriguing and the scene is set with Eminem sitting, watching a video mash-up of his life and music with words flashing on the screen such as Fame and Addiction. Flash to the side where we see a smoldering Rihanna with a fitted black dress and an A-line bob haircut.

As the song begins we see Marshall Mathers himself stuck in an elevator and at every stop we get a “re-make” of some of his greatest videos and songs starting with “Hi My Name Is” where Rihanna takes the place of Dr. Dre in the therapist chair. Next stop on the elevator ride is back to 8 mile with “Lose Yourself”.

It’s been less than a week since it premiered and it already has over 21 million views. Looks like The Real Slim Shady is back in the rap game for now. Speaking of rap game check out his other vid for “Rap God“.

Music Monday: Beyonce feat. Jay-Z “Drunk In Love”

Remember “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce feat. Jay Z way back when? Well apparently now B and J are “Drunk In Love”.

Queen Bey recently surprised and changed the music game with an unexpected album release. Out of the blue she released something that captured the entire music industries ears and attention. Of course who better than to pull a fast one on us than B herself.

Now with new songs and videos, Beyonce shows us that being drunk and in love with your hubby is just oh-so-good.

Make sure to keep up with #MusicMondays on La Vida Liz.

Happy Monday!

#MM: “Rap God” – Eminem

Eminem is giving himself a new name, adding to his others such as Slim Shady and Marshall Mathers. This time he’s calling himself a Rap God, or at least beginning to feel like one.

His first music video from his recently released album Marshall Mathers LP 2 is six long minutes of pure genius. His robotic freestyle and lyrics along with an intense video show us he still has what it takes.

Make sure to also listen to his other great hit “The Monster” feat. Rihanna HERE.

“Timber” by Pitbull feat. Ke$ha #MM

“Swing your partner round and round, end of the night it’s going down!” It’s a country booty shake down with Pitbull and Kesha‘s new song “Timber”!

Kesha’s bangin’ bod, cowgirl boots and Pitbull’s Latin flavor make this the new song country bars will be dancing to. “Timber” has reached the Billboard Top 10 and is off of Pitbull’s latest EP Meltdown. The song is full of two stepping, hips shaking and Pitbull livin la vida loca on the beach while Kesha jams out in her Daisy Dukes and black bikini at the bar.

Check out the video for yourself!

MM: “Bound 3” – James Franco and Seth Rogen

Umm…can we take a moment of silence for what new project James Franco and Seth Rogen have just created?

“Bound 2” by Kanye was released not too long ago with some surprising shots of Kimmy K. It didn’t take too long to have parodies come from left and right but I don’t think we expected this! “Bound 3” as the duo would like to call it have sure gone to another level on this video.

Go ahead and take a peek for yourself.

Rewind To 1999 VMA’s

From all the commotion of Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards I decided to not even add anymore fuel to the fire and say what everyone has already said. So to take it back to the good ol’ days when I watched enthusiastically and waited for my fav pop artists to show up I decided to post one of my favorite performances.

The days when boy bands ruled the world and they ACTUALLY danced. Backstreet Boys performing “I Want It That Way” and then transitioning to “Larger Than Life”. When A.J.’s crop top was the center of discussion and their choreography made me want to start a dance career.

What was your favorite VMA performance of all time?
