Feel like belting out Katy Perry‘s “Roar,” want to have an Eminem rap battle with your friends, or just need something to entertain the kids after 87 days of snow? Turn your smart TV into a karaoke machine using the MyMusicCloud app.

With our cloud-based music service, you can access your entire music library from your TV and even follow the words on-screen with our “Lyrics” feature.

To find MyMusicCloud on your Samsung Smart TV, click the Smart Hub button on your TV’s remote control. If you don’t see the MyMusicCloud app on the front page of your Smart Hub, go to “Samsung Apps.” Press the down button to highlight the text box for searching, then use the voice controller to say the app name, or type it in with either a blue-tooth keyboard or your remote control. If you haven’t already activated your account through our app, simply follow the directions in our “How to Activate” post.

Once you log in, you just need a wireless microphone – but even a hairbrush will do. With our Lyrics feature, you can have a ball singing with your family or friends, plus you’ll never belt out a bogus chorus again. (No more, Some nights I stay up cussin’ in my bathtub, to Fun’s “Some Nights.) Just select the Lyrics button on our site and it fetches the correct words (Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck) for you instantly.

Five 2012 Movie Soundtracks That Pop and Rock

It was a pleasant surprise to see pop stars like Adele and Taylor Swift at the Golden Globes Awards last weekend and not just because they love to hog the red carpet. Both singers were nominated for Best Original Song (Adele won for “Skyfall” over Taylor’s “Safe & Sound”).

Movie awards season is in full swing which means movie soundtracks are getting a lot of attention.  Life of Pi won Best Original Score at the Globes and is nominated for an Oscar. Also up for musical Oscars are Anna Karenina, Argo, Lincoln and Skyfall.  Alexandre Desplat’s Zero Dark Thirty score is also garnering critical praise and so is the star-studded new soundtrack for Les Miserables. (Hugh Jackman sings!)

But even if you’re not an opera or James Bond fan, there’s a lot of noteworthy pop, hip-hop and rock soundtracks to explore and download with our cloud-based music delivery service. Here are 5 worth listening to:

The Avengers – The superhero mashup features grunge tracks from Soundgarden, Scott Weiland, and more ‘90s rockers.

The Hunger Games – Taylor’s afore-mentioned folk duo with The Civil Wars was nominated for a Globe, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine makes a cameo, Arcade Fire plays two tracks and even Kid Cudi steps in with “The Ruler and the Killer.”

Katy Perry: Part of Me –The Teenage Dream’s movie companion CD features cotton candy favorites like “Firework,” “Last Friday Night,” and “Wide Awake.”

The Man with the Iron Fists — Edgy alt bands like The Black Keys go up against rappers Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa and RZA, who also directs and stars in this martial arts pic.

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 – Passion Pit and Christina Perri join rockers like Green Day (“The Forgotten”) and electronica sensation Ellie Goulding (“Bittersweet”).
