80s Songs You Might Have Loved but Make You Cringe Today
The 1980s get a bad rap when it comes to pop music, but the decade actually produced some great sing-along and dance-along tunes.

Classic Hits Are Turned into Epic Trailer Music
The standard for modern pop music usually involves some electronic beats and auto-tuned vocals. Then we have artists like J2 and Hidden Citizens who turn these pop hits into an epic score worthy of movie soundtracks. Classics such as "Lean on Me" or Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror"(which can be heard in the video above) are reproduced into what is called an epic trailer version. These epic versions have gained enough recognition to be used in promos for TV and films. Let us not forget the m...
