So last week I put Ignition Remix up against I’m Real Remix and I heard a lot of chirping that Ignition Remix could not be beat in a Best Song contest. It’s the GOAT.  The R cannot possibly be touched. Yada, yada, yada. So lets see if Ignition Remix can take down some more heavy hitters.  First up is Yeah!, which dominated the music scene along with Ignition Remix back in 2004.  So here we go.  Ignition Remix vs. Yeah!  Which is the better song?

The battle of the remixes that reigned supreme in the 2000s. Ja Rule and JLo vs. The R. I would like to say that this only involves the song, but JLo’s pink shorts and the party scenes from the Ignition video will always come to mind when discussing the songs, so I have included them here. I’ve flip flopped 5 times just writing this blog. So it’s up to you to settle this once and for all. Which song is better?

Killa Cam had a hell of a run in the early-2000s to the point where that picture above didn’t seem COMPLETELY ridiculous.  Anyway, these are still two bangers that will get any good party going.  So who ya got?

Yesterday I posed the first “Impossible Music Question” to you guys and the masses responded LOUDLY.  K-Ci & JoJo blew out All 4 One in a bloodbath (I apologize for the lack of white glove or old school microphone).  So I will give the soulful brothers their time to shine by playing the classic video below.  If you would like to nominate a song/songs for the Impossible Music Question, tweet me @TheClemReport with the hashtag #ImpossibleMusicQuestion.  Now take us away with your velvet-smooth voices, K-Ci & JoJo.

Last week on Twitter I said: “If you asked me to choose between “This Love” by Maroon 5 and “Cupid’s Chokehold” by Gym Class Heroes, I would just have to end my life”. Shortly thereafter, Cupid’s Chokehold curb stomped This Love in Twitter votes. So I decided to make this a daily weekly “whenever I hear a couple of songs that are equally as awesome” blog.  Today’s matchup is between two incredible R&B jams from the 90s.  I will just post the videos below and let the music do the talking.  Vote at the bottom of the blog.

 

“I Swear”- All 4 One

Vs.

“All My Life”- K-Ci & JoJo

NY Daily News- Puff Daddy is back!

Musician and media mogul Sean Combs, who has gone by Sean “Puffy” Combs, P.Diddy and just plain Diddy, announced that he is returning to his old stage name Puff Daddy on Tuesday.

Combs, 44, dropped the name Puff Daddy in 2001. His decision to re-adopt his old name comes just before the release of his first album in four years, “MMM.

Here we go again.  Puffy hasn’t been in the news enough, so he had to change his name again.  And sure, there will be some discussion amongst younger people about the change.  However, I feel like it is older, whiter America that will harp on it, talking to their kids and grandkids about his different names.  Trust me, nothing will make you feel whiter than talking to someone over the age of 40 about the different monikers of Sean Combs.

I personally do not want to hear about another name change, unless he officially switches his name to Dolphin Teeth.  Hate hate hate hate hate hate.

However, I will say this.  The one good thing this whole name changing nonsense has brought is the old Ben Stiller line from the “Bad Boys For Life” music video.  Gets me every time.

Rolling Stone-  Adam Lambert will join Queen on a 19-date North American tour kicking off June 19th at Chicago’s United Center and wrapping up July 20th at Washington D.C.’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. While Lambert has appeared with current Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor at numerous shows, this will be the singer’s first official tour with the group. The trio first appeared together in 2009 to perform “We Are the Champions” during American Idol before teaming up again in 2011 to perform “The Show Must Go On,” “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” at the MTV European Music Awards.

In 2012, Lambert joined the group again for a series of shows throughout Europe. In a press conference held this morning at Madison Square Garden, May explained the difference between this tour and the band’s collaboration with former Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers. “It was great with Paul, but it came to a natural end,” said May. “This happened organically with Adam. People are going to ask whether it’s Queen without Freddie. I don’t know. We just want to go out there one more time. Adam isn’t an imitator. We’re going into new territory.” 

Well this is interesting.  There are 5 artists/bands I have never seen in concert that really bums me out.  They are Biggie, 2Pac, Queen, The Beatles, and Michael Jackson.  Quite a range there.  Obviously the common denominator is that most of the people on that list are dead.  And the people that are alive cannot truly replace the ones who died.  So I guess I have to make a decision on whether seeing a Mercury-less Queen is worth my time and money.  I saw Journey in concert a few years ago and I was blown away by how much Arnel Pineda sounded like Steve Perry.  Real good show and I left feeling like I saw the closest thing to Journey without actually seeing Steve Perry live.  I barely know anything about Adam Lambert, but after seeing a few Youtube clips, I know you are not getting a Mercury voice clone.  I have a feeling I will not be able to escape the feeling that I am just watching Adam Lambert attempting to cover Queen songs.  So lets open this up for vote:

 

In related news, Freddy Mercury was the God damn man.

In semi-related news, I once worked with a guy who performed in the National Air Guitar Championships under the name Shreddy Mercury.
