What does a mountain sound sound like? A therapeutic scream at the top of your lungs? Crickets in the dead of night? Crunching of hikers boots on the pebbles approaching the summit? Or maybe it’s the sound of hipsters rocking out  in the fields below? See if what you envision happening at the top of the mountain is the same fantasy as Of Monsters and Men, in this Music Monday favorite!

“Girl Meets…” Disney Channel: Cory and Topanga are back!! Well in the sense that the two mixed together their DNA to create Riley, a 13-year-old girl whose point of view the “Boy Meets World” spin-off, “Girl Meets World,” will be told from. Disney executives confirm that the new show is in production, and will air on the Disney Channel. No word yet on whom from the original cast will make appearances, but I think it’s safe to say that the demographic ratings for the Disney Channel may jump up about a decade on this one.

A Pretty Penny: While the rest of us are slaving away at preparing Board meeting packets or wrangling in toddlers, these musicians are getting paid the big bucks to jet-set in private planes, and soak in the luxury of being rich. Forbes much anticipated list of the highest paid musicians of the year is in and once again is full of variety, from legends to tweens and all that’s in between. Take a look at the top five below:

  1. Dr. Dre: $110 million
  2. Britney Spears: $58 million
  3. Taylor Swift: $57 million
  4. Justin Bieber: $55 million
  5. Rhianna: $53 million

Protecting His Cubs: Oliver Martinez may not be the biological father of Halle Berry’s 4-year-old daughter, Nahla, but he’s still protecting his honorary offspring. When Nahla’s biological father, model Gabriel Aubry, came to drop Nahla off with Berry and Martinez, gauntlets were thrown. Martinez, who is upset with Aubry for legally holding back the family from moving to France, took his pent up aggression out on Aubry’s face. A black eye, bruised face, and a broken rib later, Aubry left the hospital and took out a restraining order on Martinez. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

 Linday Lohan…blah blah blah: While it goes against everything I have to talk about Lindsay Lohan’s umpteenth arrest, it is breaking celebrity news, so I must address it. Here’s the quick version. Lindsay hit up a Hollywood club late Thursday, after attending a J-Biebs concert. There, she got into an altercation with another woman and ended up slugging her. The cops were called and Lindsay can now face assault and violation of probation charges. Like I said blah blah.

 Jessica Simpson’s Latest Gig:  Bump “Watchers”: She may have been watching her weight after becoming a mom earlier this year, but now everyone else is watching Jessica Simpson’s possibly growing belly. Last week US Weekly published an article quoting a source confirming that Simpson was expecting baby number 2, only six months after giving birth to her daughter, Maxwell. Simpson’s camp was yet to send out an official word, but I’m guessing the paparazzi may find out before they get the chance to.

It may not be new, but I came across the Offspring’s “You’re gonna go far kid,” while I was buying an iPod for my brother for Christmas. The site linked me up to the top 10 workout songs, and wa-la this took #1, and a great song it is in general. Enjoy!

One of the best things about the television show, “Pretty Little Liar,” besides the twists, hookups, and unbelievably hot male cast, is the soundtrack!

If you’ve been caught up in paying attention to all the murder and mayhem and haven’t been able to properly listen to the catchy chorus that Emily packed her bags up to, you’re in luck.

For this week’s Music Monday, I give you, Bear Attack’s, “The Backpack Song:”
