Last night was the music industry’s opportunity to show off it’s best acts. The show itself featured a number of awesome performances, but if you missed any of the top tracks on the list of winners, we’ve rounded up our favorites for your listening pleasure and the opportunity to use Replay Music to record and capture the sound of the 2015 Grammy Awards!
Paramore — Best Rock Song “Ain’t It Fun”
Ridiculously catchy and hard to hate, this track from Paramore has everything you want in straight-forward pop rock. No fuss, only fun.
Kendrick Lamar — Best Rap Song / Performance “i”
One of the most positive hip-hop songs to hit the air waves this year. Kendrick is known for his poignancy and his third studio album is one of the most anticipated in 2015. Keep your ears open!
St. Vincent — Best Alternative Music Record “Strange Mercy”
Indie goddess, St Vincent (Annie Clark) walked away with an award for her haunting record and lurching sound on “Strange Mercy”. Here’s one of our favorite tracks from the album, “Cruel”:
Pentonix — Best Instrumental Arrangement “Daft Punk”
The a capella group, Pentonix, goes into audio soundscapes of the last year, sampling seven different Daft Punk songs. Using a mixture of insane vocal and beatboxing talent, this hardworking crew deserve the nod.
“Twenty Feet From Stardom” — Best Music Film
This is a featured performance from one of the stars of this amazing documentary (which you can stream here on Netflix and record with Replay Video Capture 7). Showcasing the talent of background singers throughout history, this is a must-watch movie and must-listen soundtrack.
Tell us your favorite moments of the show and music from the past year over on Facebook or Twitter. We’d love to hear what you’re listening too! Don’t forget to use Replay Music to get all of the best tracks of 2015.
So you know about YouTube and Netflix. But what about those undiscovered gems around the Internet just ripe for the downloading? Check out these Replay Media Catcher compatible sites. Note that not all sites are viewable in all countries.
This month, we wanted to feature the sites that tickle our funny bone, make us spit take, and get us smiling from ear to ear. Here are five fantastic sites that you are definitely going to want to download video from, and keep forever… because laughter is contagious and continual.
More centered on Internet memes and pop culture, Cracked offers some humorous takes on everything from Doctor Who to Kanye West. Also, check out the “Artist In Residency Program” where they feature a filmmaker hand-picked for your viewing pleasure.
The OG funny video site still has quite a bit of life – and not as many cat memes. With a new Video section in Beta, they are experimenting with a whole channel devoted to Cheez-approved YouTube content. Don’t worry; there are still cat videos.
This site is full of hilarious distractions. Everything from GIFs, to listicles, to random factoids, you can loose yourself for hours on The Chive. If you’re looking to capture some funny, watch and record their trending videos for a clue as to what will be popping up in your Facebook feed next.
Another classic funny video site, College Humor has been serving up the chuckles for 15 years, and boasts an impressive collection of original series and sketches. Our personal favorite is “Phantom of the Office” – we’d hire him just to keep us laughing.
As always, be sure to use only the best to download your favorite videos and media using Replay Media Catcher. If you’ve got a favorite video outlet on the web, be sure to give us the low-down in the comments or on our Facebook Page.
Dr. Wilson back here. Well, I wasn’t actually gone. Deb REALLY wanted to do a post on balloons, so while I was out training, she snuck in that last entry. “Training?” you ask. Last Sunday I competed in my second 1/2 Ironman distance triathlon – Steelhead 70.3. Translated, I swam 1.2 miles in Lake Michigan, bicycled 56 miles, and then ran a half marathon (13.1 miles). If you think that is crazy, Shellie has done a few full Ironman races. I might be that crazy in 2015. Between work and family, we manage to squeeze in a lot of miles of training.
This week’s video is a bit of a classic, turning around the patterned: “Sh*t” + athletic activity + “say”.
While we’re all still recovering from the Team USA loss, there’s still quite a bit of exciting matches to come! We checked out our entires from last week’s contest and there were some innnnteresting entries. With that being said, we laughed out loud to Mr. Richard T:
If you got a yellow card, what would it be for?Not speaking to my girlfriend through the duration of the World Cup.
We’re pretty sure that would get you a RED card, Richard! Maybe he should give his free Replay Capture Suite AND jersey to her.
Want one yourself? Take a stab at this week’s question to win our Suite of products as well as an official FIFA World Cup jersey.
