Top 10 Best Cher Songs
She’s the pop icon with over six decades of ongoing success and over 100 million record sales. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the "Top 10 Best Cher Songs." For this list, we’ve chosen our entries based on a combination of the artist’s fan favorites and their most commercially successful songs.

"You Need To Calm Down" Is Exciting
I was a pretty big #TaylorSwift fan not so long ago. Up until Reputation dropped, I really enjoyed both her country songs, which is basically where she first found popularity, and her forays into pop music. It wasn't that I thought Reputation was a bad album; far from it. I think by that point—only two years ago—I'd just had enough of Taylor Swift for a little while, as radio stations had a tendency to overplay her music. I just saw the video for "You Need to Calm Down" this morning, and I've go...

"Death of Me" Review
I have a habit of listening to Daughtry songs that I like over and over again, and the song, "Death of Me" is no exception. However, a random thought popped into my head: I once used the song as an audio for a video edit that mainly focused on a character in a web series who is known for basically being personified anxiety. After listening to the song over and over again several more times, I found myself thinking less of the video edit itself, and more about why the song was a relevant choice o...

Red Velvet Beauty Ranking

Is DJ Khaled an Unlikable Character?
I’m not one to discuss music industry drama unless it’s within Facebook Messenger with my friends; most times, I just don’t see the point. But I will take pretty much any chance to relate music and other aspects of pop culture to critical theories, methods, and concepts. I really don’t have an opinion on this situation, and I honestly don’t understand it enough to have one (and I’m too lazy too look that deep into it TBH). I’m saying all of this to say that this is nothing against DJ Khaled. I’m...

Charlie Strange, a Music Video, a Sandwich, and the Taste of Our Era
A sad piece of bread is getting covered in slow motion with an even sadder mayonnaise. Chunks of floppy lettuce are thrown on some cheese, the kind of cheese that would probably not melt after two hours of baking. A dirty pink, unnatural color coming from industrial meat slices completes the palette. If a little twist at the end of the four-ish minute video takes the viewer by surprise in a first phase (no spoiler alert), it is only to reinforce an impression of reclusion; of meal-for-one situat...
