Here at PopCrush, we obsess over all things pop just as much as our readers do. Every Friday, you’ll be able to get to know us a little bit better as we gush about our personal favorite pop culture-related things at this very moment. Read on to find out what our Associate Editor, Michelle McGahan, is crushing on this week!
In Round 1 of March Music Madness, Britney Spears' 'Baby One More Time' won over the Spice Girls' 'Wannabe' with a whopping 70.14% of the votes. Likewise, Hanson's 'MMMBop' had a landslide win against Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's 'One Sweet Day' -- 80.42% of the votes went to the pop/rock band of brothers! Now, in a true battle of '90s pop greatness, 'Baby One More Time' faces off against 'MMMBop.' Which song should be given the title of Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era?
The '90s wouldn't have been the same without Hanson and Mariah Carey. (Editor's note: In fact, our whole lives wouldn't be the same without them: Hanson was not one, but two of our editors' favorite bands growing up, and the first CD one of our editors ever owned was a Mariah Carey album.) Hanson's 'MMMBop' and Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's 'One Sweet Day' are both songs that were made for turning up on the radio in the car. Musically, they're very different -- but lyrically, they're both really emotional, relatable tracks. Which song would you choose as the Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era?
Congratulations to Zac Hanson on the birth of a new baby!
June 2013 is going to be a great month for new music. Music lovers will receive a dose of pure pop from groups like Big Time Rush and Hanson, a fresh batch of R&B jams courtesy of Kelly Rowland and Ashanti, a bit of jazzy crooning from 'Glee' star Matthew Morrison, some new hip-hop tracks from Mac Miller and J. Cole, and a few surefire party staples from 3OH!3. So, which new music release for June 2013 has you the most excited?
