It’s Labor Day weekend. It’s the time of year where America lets you rest on your laurels for all the hard work you’ve been doing lately. It marks the end of summer and, in effect, the beginning of change. Not all change is bad though. In fact, I consider change a good thing. Dance music is also something I consider good. So, rather than sitting on your butt this weekend, make like the House of Pain and get out your seats and jump around. Jump up, jump up and get down. Jump. Jump. Jump!
1. Static Revenger – Turn The World On (TheFatRat Dub)
2. AlunaGeorge – Your Drums, Your Love
3. The Hood Internet – I’ll Be Country (Big KRIT x Passion Pit)
4. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Under The Bridge (Brummer Remix)
5. Chris Brown – Don’t Wake Me Up (TheFatRat Remix)

Whoa. It’s March. We also had an extra day in the year on Wednesday. If that’s not a cause for celebration this weekend, then I really don’t know what is. Get busy this weekend to the sounds below. What’s everybody doing? Is everybody else drinking green beer too?
Green beer day is one of those things you only want to happen once a year.

Yoooo! This weekend, America will be in full form as most of the nation’s eye will be fixed on Super Bowl XLVI, which is absolutely proven to provide high-throttle sports action backed by gluttonous consumption of food, drink and expensive advertising.
For anybody else that holds marketing dear to their heart like me (I studied journalism and strategic communication in college,) this weekend is like free porn on cable TV. To tie things into music, it’ll be interesting to see what bands and artists are gonna be featured as the soundtrack to this weekend’s big-budget commercials. For more on this, peep the write up on song placements in commercials by our good friend and fellow blogger Confusion over at Pigeons and Planes.
What are some of your traditions for Super Bowl weekend? Giants or Patriots? Do you love American football? Do you hate American football? What artists would you love to see back a Super Bowl ad?
BONUS: A lot of companies have been previewing their big ads for the weekend on YouTube to get a viral bang for their buck. Here’s my favorite so far, featuring Matthew Broderick parodying his own classic flick, Ferris Beuller’s Day Off. The soundtrack also reprises itself from the original movie–“Oh Yeah” by Yello.
1. “Levels (TheFatRat Remix)” – Aviici
2. “Youth (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)” – Foxes
3. “Nightchain (Wale X Kavinsky)” – The Hood Internet
4. “¡Holy Guacamole!” – Super Mash Bros
