Okay, Jimmy Fallon, you win this round

Okay, Jimmy Fallon, you win this round

Jimmy Fallon’s recurring Ragtime Gals bit is, like so many recurring bits, something of a mixed bag. The returns, they are diminishing. But we are forced to admit that this one, a Backstreet Boys-centric cover of Sisqo’s “Thong Song,” is pretty funny and even a little bit charming.

Just look at

those dads ! Look at their boxy jackets! They are having such a good time with their tight...

An old Backstreet Boys single is built around a sample of Howie Dorough ripping ass

Before today, the Backstreet Boys’ “The Call” was best known as the first recorded song about ghosting. That’s all changed, however, as bad boy AJ McLean just dropped a bomb: The whole thing is built around a fart.

Not AJ’s fart, though. In an interview with Billboard, McLean outed his bandmate Howie Dorough for ripping a robust one during a recording session for the song. Producer Max...

Can you take me high enough?: 24 songs with a pivotal key change

As guitarist Nigel Tufnel despairs to director Marty DiBergi in Spinal Tap, once your amps are turned up all the way to 11, “Where do you go from there? Where?” Many songwriters stuck in a creative corner kick up the jams with a tried and true chestnut: the key change. This showy yet effective tool can underline a song’s true meaning, turn a simple ditty into an epic saga, or highlight just...
