DRAKKAR NOIR - SMELLS LIKE A HIT

BANKRUPT - PHOENIXThe Parisian quartet Phoenix follows up their 2009 Grammy winning Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix with Bankrupt - an homage to the 80's with smooth synch and electro pop tunes that will have anyone over 25 swooning with nostalgia. GRAMMY WINNER  Think Prince's Purple Rain, Bananarama is your Venus, and Madonna not quite like a virgin here.   The single Drakkar Noir is a tongue-in-cheek backhand to the homogeneous bourgeois that passes today for high society, achieved by reference to the fragrance that would dominate the 80's.  What started as one of the first fashionable men's fragrance by French fashion house Guy Laroche, would become almost a parody of the decade and the trendy, upscale mall rat.  To no fault of it's own, Drakkar was a casualty to the excess of American suburbia that was the 80's.  While the Bonfire of the Vanities is back in more ways than one (see TRIBECA or Chelsea in NYC),  Phoenix just might bring back Drakkar Noir.   After all, it did smell terrific!  CLICK IMAGES TO LEARN MORE.

Check out the latest album from Phoenix today.  These guys are as patriotic for the USA as any foreign band ever could be!

DIAMONDS... FOREVER GROOVY

One of the latest singles from music sensation Rihanna could eventually end up in a Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpel, or Harry Winston commercial.   Diamonds has the hook to keep you moving.. and singing along with Rihanna.  It does NOT have the name checking that other R&B and Pop divas like Beyonce and even Madonna have found irresistible to avoid in recent tunes.   No, this track is all about you.. "shine bright like a diamond" purrs Rihanna over and over again.   RiRi is giving you sparkle.   A love song really, this tune sings of love at first sight and the faith of a powerful connection.   How can you resist... even if you prefer gold to gems.. or no jewelry at all!  Click DIAMONDS to download NOW!   If you're a big Rihanna fan, why not add her latest fragrance to your collection.  Click NUDE to shop the scent now.  Watch the Diamonds video below:

PSY- GANGNAM STYLE - REALLY?

PSY IN GANGNAM STYLEWell it's official.  PSY's Gangnam Style is the most watched video in the history of YouTube!  With over 800.000.000 views, that means PSY clearly has had more exposure than any other pop star this year - or maybe any year.  The South Korean singer horse dances his way around the city showing off his style and dance move to win over a "sexy lady".   The phrase - it's so bad it's good - come to mind before he gets to the chorus.   While you might not want to own the song -click Gangnam Style, you should watch the video.   See Below:

Oddly, PSY is right on trend with men's fashion for Spring 2013- COLOR is on the way.   Let's remember PSY was on trend.. not setting the trend!
