Only Love Survives - Ryan Dolan

Only Love Survives by Ryan Dolan is the official Irish entry for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. Ryan both sounds and looks like a pop star and I know he will represent Ireland well in Sweden as he competes in the first semi final on May 14th for a place in the final on the 18th. Ryan is currently doing lots of publicity for the song here in Ireland. 

Ryan's website is here and he is on Twitter at @RyanDolanMusic

Five pop music parody videos by Joanna Ryde

One of my most favourite celebrities here in Ireland is Joanna Ryde. Joanna is based in Waterford where she has shows at Dignity every week. She is also a reporter for the radio station Beat 102-103 and some of her podcasts are here
Her parody videos of pop songs and other pop culture moments are always so witty and clever. I can never hear the original song again without thinking of Joanna's fab versions. 

Joanna's website is here and her Youtube page which features all her parody videos is here.

Here are five of my most favourite of her parody videos.

Pot Noodle:  M's Pop Muzik.

Bleeding Crazy - Carly's Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe

Aldi Vodka - Lady Gaga's Alejandro

Katy Perry's Last Friday Night (TGIF)

and one of her most recent parodies Horse Inside - The Rubberbandits Horse Outside
