Sausage Party is a brand new animated movie about one sausage's quest to discover the truth about his existence; a misplaced sausage and his savory friends embark on an existential adventure through the aisles of a massive supermarket in this raunchy animated comedy from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Includes tracks by Wham! Meat Loaf, Spandau Ballet, Eric Carmen, Jr Jr, Three Dog Night & Isley Brothers.
Neptune is a far lusher construct than earlier Tall Heights acoustic albums — along with pristine and emotive vocal harmonies, there's subtly chugging electric guitar and a spare descending bassline on "Iron in the Fire," ethereal synthesizers and a spacious drum part on "Spirit Cold," a brittle splash of percussion to open "Backwards and Forwards" and feedback created by two cellphones on "Cross My Mind."
June 1st 2016 saw the 30th anniversary of the release of Chris de Burgh's album Into The Light. This was the album that established Chris as a true worldwide superstar. The album sold in excess of 8 million copies and included the iconic single 'The Lady In Red', which reached number 1 in 47 countries. 30 years later Chris is releasing his 26th studio album - A Better World.
Beat Street is an American 1984 drama film featuring New York City hip hop culture of the early 1980s, breakdancing, DJing and graffiti. There are several performances in the movie, notably from established early hip hop groups, Grandmaster Melle Mel & the Furious Five, Doug E. Fresh, Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force and the Treacherous Three.
III Sides To Every Story (1992) is the third album by the Boston funk-metal band Extreme. The album is structured as a concept album in three sections labeled as "sides" — a play on the notion of "different sides to a story" and that of "sides" of a vinyl album. The sides, mentioned in the song "Cupid's Dead" as "three sides to every story" are named "Yours", "Mine" and "The Truth", and each features a distinct musical style and lyrical imagery.
The Art of Rebellion is the sixth studio album by American crossover thrash band Suicidal Tendencies, originally released in 1992. The album maintains its position as the band's most commercially successful studio album to date, and the songs "Nobody Hears" and "I'll Hate You Better" have the distinction of being the only top 40 hits in Suicidal Tendencies' career.
