Ready for some spooky musical fun? Halloween home decorations have grown from simple carved pumpkins to elaborate LCD light shows set to music, as we discovered last year when we invited you to Watch a Halloween House Sing ‘What Does the Fox Say.’

This year, we found a fun, new singing house to spotlight. The Thomas House of Naperville, Illinois sings 30, yes, 30, different songs, according to owner Nick Thomas.

Using dancing LCD lights shaped like pumpkins and monster mouths, the two story home appears to “sing” along to hit songs by Katy Perry (“Dark Horse”), The Kongos (“Come with Me Now”), AC/DC (Hell’s Bells), Eminem (“Till I Collapse”), Queen (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) and, of course, our favorite, Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Plastic skeletons, ghouls and tombstones in the home’s yard perfectly complement Jackson’s epic zombie hit. (Or maybe those are the remains of his disapproving neighbors. Muhahahaha.)

We’ve posted a few versions of the singing house below for you to enjoy and share with friends. Happy Halloween from the musical monster mashers at MyMusicCloud.

Baseballsongs

The crack of the bat, the scent of hot buttered popcorn, and, hey, is that Journey’s Steve Perry trying to get a stadium sing-along started? (He’s a crazy Giants fan.) This week, we’re celebrating that grand old American game, baseball.

Besides the home runs and stolen bases, one of the great things about modern baseball are the heart-pounding snippets of music blasted in-between plays. Whether it’s metal, country, hip-hop, or a player’s wife’s single (yes, we’re talking to you, Ben Zobrist), today’s pro-baseball players get to show off their individuality by choosing the walkup songs played aloud as they get up to bat or stroll onto the pitcher’s mound.

So whether you’re getting ready to watch the World Series with your bros, or just the weekly game with your kids, here are 15 great baseball walkup songs to get you in that relaxed, beer-sipping, and peanut-crunching mood. Make a MyMusicCloud playlist and stream it through your smart TV during the 7th inning stretch, if you like.

Ariana Grande and The Weeknd don’t look that big, so why are they hogging so much space on your phone or tablet? Or maybe it’s Haim, Shakira, or Luke Bryan who are swallowing your megabytes.

When you love music, you want to have your music collection at your fingertips wherever you go. But, eventually, that dreaded “Not Enough Space” window pops up, because your music collection is taking up too much precious storage on your cellphone or tablet.

Storage problems byte. You could delete some of your favorite apps, spend your heard-earned cash on a bigger SD memory card, or upgrade to a phone or tablet with more memory, but who wants to do that? Here’s a better idea: Take advantage of the free music storage service at MyMusicCloud.

The MyMusicCloud app stores your entire music collection in the cloud for FREE. Listen to any 250 songs, and when you’re sick of them, slide them back into the cloud and rotate in some new tunes. Or for a mere $40 / year, enjoy Unlimited Membership and play any of your songs on any of your devices (up to 10), regardless of brand (Apple, Android, Windows, Nokia, LG). It’s easy.

STEP 1. Create an account at MyMusicCloud.com and automatically upload your music from iTunes, Dropbox, Google Drive or anywhere on your computer’s hard drive. Our Sync Agent magically imports your albums for you. (Here’s how.)

STEP 2. Download the MyMusicCloud app to your Android phone or tablet (Or Samsung Smartwatch or even Smart TV). Log in and all your music is instantly right there.

STEP 3. Got songs floating around your cellphone or tablet that you want to store in the cloud? Just go to “Account” and click the “Sync Now” button. The app sniffs out music on your device and adds it to the cloud for you.

STEP 4. Once you can see all your songs safely stored in MyMusicCloud, delete them from your phone or tablet’s Music folder, freeing up space for games, photos, videos, movies, and more fun apps you’d rather use.

Don’t play storage wars another minute with your Android phone or tablet. Free yourself from storage limits with MyMusicCloud. For more tips, click the “Help & How To” category in our blog’s right-hand margin.

pickuplines

We’ve all heard songs with ridiculous pickup lines, but is anyone crazy enough to try these out on a stranger in the real world? Actually, yes. His name is Tommy Wooldridge, age 24, and he calls himself a “romantically handicapped filmmaker.”

His friend has been filming Tommy’s attempts to meet girls in the Tennessee area by using lyrics from songs by Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and more top 40 singers.

The videos (watch one below) appear on YouTube under the hashtag #VEVOLyricLine, and the best part is that at the end of each one, Tommy asks viewers to suggest lines from other songs that he should use.

So we at MyMusicCloud thought we’d help him out by listing some funny pickup lines from songs in our Music Store. Here are 10 song lyrics we’d like to see Tommy use. Can you think of some better ones? If so, post them in the comments section below.

“Are you from Tennessee? ‘Cause, baby, you’re the only 10 I see.” – “Pickup Truck” by Shane Yellowbird.

“Could you love me in a Bentley? Could you love me on a bus? I’ll ask 21 questions, and they all about us, ” — “21 Questions” by 50 Cent.

“Punk rock girl, give me a chance, Punk rock girl, let’s go slamdance, We’ll dress like Minnie Pearl, Just you and me, punk rock girl” – “Punk Rock Girl” by The Dead Milkmen.

“If I said I want your body, would you hold it against me?” – “Hold It Against Me” by Britney Spears.

“You’re the one for me, fatty, you’re the one I really, really love,” — “You’re the One for Me, Fatty” by Morrissey.

“I’m like the Afrocentric Asian, half-man half-amazing,” – “It Aint Hard to Tell” by Nas.

“Let’s have some fun, this beat is sick. I want to take a ride on your disco stick,” –“Lovegame” by Lady Gaga.

“Can I get some fries with that shake-shake booty? If looks could kill, you would be an Uzi” – “Shoop” by Salt N Pepa

“Hello, is it me you’re looking for?” “Hello” by Lionel Richie

“I like the way you work it, no diggity, I’d like to bag it up,” – “No Diggity” by Blackstreet featuring Dr. Dre, Queen Pen.

tailgate

Hey Jack, it’s a fact, the show’s back in town. And, by show, we mean America’s favorite pro sport, football! So break out your favorite jerseys and beer koozies, and get ready to drop that bass, because we’re going to help you make a killer football song playlist.

But first, it helps to know what the real grid-iron gangstas are listening to. Billboard.com recently polled several pro-football players about which songs made their pre-game football playlists, and the answers are pretty surprising.

Sure, there was a lot of T.I., Drake, Wiz Khalifa, and Young Jeezy, but there was also Sum 41, Smash Mouth, and Everclear (from Minnesota Viking linebacker Audie Cole); some Whitney Houston and Sade (Really, Dallas Cowboy Justin Durant?); and a little Kaskade and Tiesto (Geoff Schwartz of The New York Giants).

But, seriously, football fans, even though hip-hop has been quickly eclipsing rock at many parking lot parties, Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC and Florida Georgia Line are still holding their own. And some of the hottest rappers, like Eminem, are combining the two for even more basspower.

So, here are some of the best, classic, tailgate-crashing, stadium-rocking, football pump-up songs we could find, along with some new jams and some feel-good country anthems for the Boys of Fall.

Got MyMusicCloud? By importing any of these into your music collection, or buying them from our Music Store (starting at 19 cents), you can flag these to a portable Football Playlist in no time.

First, log in to your account from a computer or tablet, select the PLAYLISTS tab at top, and click “Create New Playlist.” Once you name it, open any track and hit the blue triangle that appears at the bottom right. Select “Add to Playlist” and highlight the list you want. Just like that, you’ll have the honeys dancing in their seats at the pre-game party too.

  1. Juelz Santana – The Second Coming
  2. The Rolling Stones – Sympathy for the Devil
  3. Kongos – Come with Me Now
  4. Eminem – Berzerk
  5. Kanye West GOOD Music — To the World
  6. T.I. featuring Eminem – Touchdown
  7. Meek Mill featuring Rick Ross – I’m the Boss
  8. DMX – X Gon’ Give It to Ya
  9. The Heavy – How You Like Me Now (Original)
  10. David Guetta featuring Sia – Titanium
  11. Jay-Z Featuring Rihanna, Kanye West – Run This Town
  12. Daft Punk – Harder Better Faster Stronger
  13. Jay-Z – Public Service Announcement
  14. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Dubstep Remix) – Can’t Hold Us
  15. Coolio – Gangsta’s Paradise
  16. The Notorious B.I.G. — Hypnotize
  17. Kid Rock – All Summer Long
  18. Florida Georgia Line Featuring Luke Bryan – This Is How We Roll
  19. Avenged Sevenfold — Hail to the King
  20. AC/DC — Thunderstruck
  21. Ozzy Osbourne — Crazy Train
  22. Bon Jovi — This Is Our House
  23. U2 – Elevation
  24. Foo Fighters — My Hero
  25. Don’t Look Back – Boston

Odds are you have more than 250 songs in your music collection, but you still want them all at your fingertips, because you never know when a romantic moment or a boring subway outage or a spontaneous office dance party will occur.

We get this, which is why we give you the power to move 250 songs in and out of our cloud storage and into your listening queue whenever you like. It’s always completely free to store all your music at MyMusicCloud. You can take advantage of our service and enjoy access to 250 songs at a time, or upgrade to our Unlimited membership for just $40 / year (less than the cost of 1 latte a month).

Tired of Calvin Harris or Frank Ocean? When your 250 songs get stale, simply upload new ones, or download existing songs from the cloud. Here’s how:

First, import your music collection into MyMusicCloud with our automatic sync agent (See “How to Import Your Music“), so you can listen to them on any computer, tablet, Smart TV or mobile device, regardless of operating system, with our app.

After logging in via the web, you’ll see a tab labeled “CLOUD” in the top navigation bar to the right of “PLAYLISTS.” That’s where your stored tracks live until you call them down for action. (If you don’t see CLOUD, don’t panic. It just means you haven’t imported more than 250 songs.) To see them, click CLOUD. Several tabs appear in the far left-hand column, indicating the number that are “Playable” and those that are “Stored.”

If you already have 250 songs in rotation, you’ll need to free up space by clicking the Playable tab, hovering over any track and clicking the ” – ” icon to send it to the cloud. To make any cloud-based song playable, simply press Cloud, hover over a title and click the “+” icon to the right.

That’s all it takes to refresh your playlists. To see more “How to” posts like this one, simply type “Help” in the search field in the upper right corner of this blog. Happy listening.

How cool was Apple’s Tuesday product event? The tech giant blew the roof off by announcing newer and bigger iPhones, introducing the Apple watch, and then bringing out Bono and the boys to give away U2’s latest album, “Songs of Innocence,” free to iPhone and iTunes users.

It’s all good news for “iFans.” Except for. Well, it’s just that … Now, you have to camp outside an Apple store, or fight the trolls online, to pre-order your iPhone 6 (starting today), and just pray to the ghost of Steve Jobs that they don’t sell out before they ship on Sept. 19. And those cool Apple watches? They’re not out till 2015.

Or — just a thought — you could check out the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smart watches, which are already in stores and do more things than the Apple watch. Both have sleek square faces, but instead of a clunky knob on the side like Apple’s, the Gear 2 has a button on the watch face, plus a 2-megapixel camera. (Apple’s watch doesn’t offer a camera.)

Besides enabling you to place calls and text, the Samsung Gear watches free you to listen to your entire digital music collection anywhere with the MyMusicCloud app. Our free music storage app works on- and off-line, and syncs your music across any smart device – tablet, phone, laptop, Smart TV – regardless of brand (Apple, Android, Blackberry, Windows, etc.).

With a Bluetooth headset, you can kick it to Kenny Chesney, or whomever you love, via your Samsung Gear 2 and cell phone. And that free U2 album? You can only hear it in iTunes, right? Nope.

Once you’ve downloaded “Songs of Innocence” to iTunes, you can easily add it to your MyMusicCloud library and listen on any smart device. Just launch the MyMusicCloud app and hit the “Import Music” button (it looks like an arrow pointing up). Once you’ve installed our Sync Agent software, it automatically imports it for you.

Or you can manually select the album from your iTunes music folder on your hard drive and import it. That way, your music is always together in one place, not scattered around different devices. See how easy it is to listen to your music on all your gadgets in our demo video below.

Or you could just stick with only Apple devices, and wait, because waiting is cool too, right?
