Sad news today, as reports note that Robin Gibb, one-third of the Bee Gees, is reportedly close to death, suffering from health problems stemming from a blocked bowel he suffered nearly two years ago, along with colon cancer which was reportedly in remission a month ago. His twin brother, Maurice, died of a simliar condition nine years ago. Robin is reportedly in a coma, with his family at his side. Robin, along with Maurice and Barry, emerged from Australia to become one of the biggest music acts of the 1960s and 1970s, with a lengthy career spanning over four decades. Fingers crossed that he can hold on a bit longer.

Martelly captured nearly 68 percent of the vote in the presidential election runoff, defeating opposition leader and former first lady Mirlande Manigat, according to preliminary election results released Monday night. [Photo: Dieu Nalio Chery/AP]

Now’s a good time to remind everyone that, like Wyclef, Sweet Micky is a pop star. Unlike Wyclef, he is now the president-elect of Haiti.

Phil Collins: Against All Odds

(from ...Hits)

In honor of the man, the myth, the legend, Phil Collins announcing his retirement, we’re going to post our favorite karaoke song, “Against All Odds.” By the end of this song, we’re on the floor. Crying. In a puddle. Our karaoke style is very emotive. Anyway, Mr. Collins has said in the past that his health problems were getting to him, and told Rolling Stone a few months back that he considered suicide (yikes!). So maybe retirement is for the best. Fun fact: Phil’s “In the Air Tonight” basically introduced that very airy “gated” drum sound you heard in every mainstream pop song in the ’80s. Including this one. (thanks flavorpill)
