Last Night: So You Think You Can Dance's Blog-Worthy Musical Selections

It's rare that I find myself perched in front of a television in the evening hours during the week, especially during the summer months. Usually at a show, a friend's abode or perhaps a watering hole, last night, I stayed in thanks to a head cold, and found myself drawn into watching FOX's So You Think You Can Dance. Far be it from me to turn to reality programming, however, over the past few seasons of the show, it's one that I can always count on to entertain.



This season's "catch" is that the top 10 (now 9 and after tonight's results, 8) dancers are paired up with "all-stars" from previous seasons. For this music-minded telly-tuner-inner, however, it's the song choices that highlight some great, and some ooof yikes, choreographed numbers. SYTYCD has always had a solid rapport for choosing slightly "obscure for the general public" styled songs. (Think Roisin Murphy's Ramalama Bang Bang in Season 2.)


Now in its seventh season, last night's episode proved no different...although this go 'round, both the partner dances and individual solos were dotted with tunes known well throughout the land of blogs. If the show maintains this heightened level of musicality, you can assure I'll skip a few more venue gigs, stay at home to watch, then most likely embarrass myself by learning the choreographies. 


Ladies and gentlemen, beasts, boys and girls...here are the blog-worthy routines, with video evidence.

Stream Big Boi's New Album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, a Week Early

Post title says it all, eh? If you didn't already get how geeked I am for Big Boi's album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, then feel free to peruse the backlogs of my ravings.




Or you could stream the album, due out July 6, in its' entirety right now and make the conclusion for yourself that yeah, dudeman's got all sorts of the rad going on over the course of this disc.


Head here to give a listen now. Then scroll a wee bit down for a new tune from the album. Hustle Blood sounds like Boi lassoed Sleigh Bells to whisper the intro...and lead you straight towards the boudoir. Only it's Jamie Foxx on the crooning and Lil Jon produced the track. Super sexy!


Pre-order Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty here.
