2012 has been one hell of a year! I’ve been through quite a bit of good x bad things, but moving making the leap to move to Los Angeles is one of the best things I’ve done. I’m falling in love with California, making new friends, loving my job, and anxious to see x do more. Oh and as far as music, man California has so much music I’ve yet to explore! But I’ve got to admit that 2012 was a great year for music, especially pop music.
The pop music this year was pretty good, and each year you can surely expect an awesome mashup of the years biggest songs curteousy of DJ Earworm. So in the tradition of keeping things consistently fresh, DJ Earwarm released his 2012 pop mashup titled “United State of Pop 2012 (Shine Brighter.)”

Seriously, Maroon 5 can never do any wrong in my eyes. I don’t usually attribute that affirmative statement to a lot of music out nowadays, but I can gladly stand behind Maroon 5 and Dave Matthews Band. Those are two bands that always tease my ears with timeless, effortless, and illustrious music.
Not only is Maroon 5 an amazing band, they have one of the hottest lead singers. Adam Levin is so sexy and his voice is even sexier. It should be a sin for a man to be that sexy, seriously, his level of enticing handsomeness is beyond words. He happens to be one of my celebrity crushes, every time he comes on television I have to bit my lips. It’s ridiculous how sexy he is! But aside from his charming looks, it’s obvious that his voice is clearly exceptional and off the charts.
I enjoyed watching Adam on The Voice and I was glad to see him showing off his eccentric tattoos and quirky dance moves in Maroon 5′s new music video “Moves Like Jagger.” The video came out yesterday and the song takes a retro direction. It begins with classic footage of Mick Jagger, the iconic singer from the Rolling Stones, talking about his plans to make music. Following the legendary footage of Mick Jagger, the video turns into a mash-up of people trying to dance like Jagger.
Anyone who knows a little something about the Rolling Stones or Mick Jagger, knows that Jagger is known for his outlandish yet contagious dance. He has this way of thrusting his legs, twitching his body, and clapping his hands in this quirky yet cool manner. You can’t talk about Mick Jagger without mentioning his dance moves and embarrassing yourself while attempting to move like Jagger.
I know from watching the video that the dancers had fun trying to move like Jagger. Have you ever tried to move like Jagger? It’s a lot of fun just throwing on some music and trying to move like him. Yet this song is more than just moving like Jagger, so take a listen to the lyrics and enjoy the video. Christina Aguilera is even on the track belting out with her amazing vocals and she looks good in this video.
Check out the video for Maroon 5′s “Move Like Jagger” and if you’re a fan of Maroon 5, then I’m sure you’ll love it. Or perhaps, you’re just a fan of Adam Levine; he is quite the epitome of scrumptious eye candy. LOL
