The 55 greatest breakup songs of all time

The 55 greatest breakup songs of all time

Breakups songs don’t fit one simple pattern, because breakups don’t fit one simple pattern. Okay, maybe they fit three or four simple patterns, but we’re talking some pretty radical extremes of feeling: are you happy, are you sad? Did you dump or were you dumped? Do you want them back or do you never want to see them again?  Breakup anthems are complicated things that run the full gamut of emotion. Sadness and grief are certainly the classic ones. But some are righteous cries of joy that signal the end of a bad relationship. Others are thoughtful meditations on human connection. And others… well frankly they’re a little toxic, songs about burning the very concept of love to the ground.  The best breakup songs distil raw, universal human emotions into sonic symphonies. On this list, you'll find wounded soul singers and divas walking unbowed from the ashes of bad relationships. There are indignant rappers and spiteful rockers. Adele is lurking in the shadows of her ex's place, as she is wont to do. And among the 55 greatest breakup songs of all time, you're certain to find something to relate to. And if it’s all too bleak, well, we've got a list of pick-me-up songs ready for you to queue up to help the healing begin.  Listen to these songs on Amazon Music RECOMMENDED:💔 The best heartbreak songs😭 The best sad songs🍸 The best drinking songs❤️ The best love songs😂 The best funny songs

The 55 best workout songs to play at the gym

The 55 best workout songs to play at the gym

Alright: time to get physical and also musical. Contrary to what the very ripped personal trainer at the gym keeps screaming at you, sometimes the best motivation for working up a sweat isn’t the grunting encouragement of a stranger clutching a protein shake. Often, you just need the right song to get your blood pumping, your body moving and you mind in the zone. The perfect workout song is, to some extent, an elusive beast that heavily depends on what type of music you’re into: presumably there are people out there who work out to showtunes, and good for them. The unifying factor is enough energy to power the national grid, and a decently fast beat to help you keep the pace up. Beyond that, all bets are off,  To help you on your fitness journey, we tapped our stable of music geeks – some of which are in much better shape than others – to scour their knowledge of hip-hop, pop, classic rock and for 55 high-energy motivators. Some may seem like pretty leftfield choices, but all of them should get your pulse racing. Strap on the sweatband and get ready to move.  Written by Kristen Zwicker, Marley Lynch, Hank Shteamer, Gabrielle Bruney, Brent DiCrescenzo, Sophie Harris, Andy Kryza, Andrew Frisicano, Nick Leftley, Tim Lowery, Carla Sosenko, Kate Wertheimer, Steve Smith and Andrzej Łukowski.

The 60 greatest summer songs of all time

The 60 greatest summer songs of all time

No season inspires songwriters quite like the summer. Sure, there are artists whose music can be described as ‘autumnal’ or ‘wintry,’ but no musician has ever competed to have ‘the song of spring.’ It’s no wonder, really. If most music is ultimately about conveying a sense of freedom, there’s no time of year that better represents that feeling.  Even if you’re long past the days of ‘summer vacation’ being a thing, there’s something about the warm temperatures, sprinklers on lawns and the smell of barbecue that brings you right back to being a kid with no responsibilities again - and the right song can transport you there even in the dreariest of months. This list covers decades of summer jams, from ‘60s soul sunshine to ‘Hot Girl Summer.’ Slather on some sunscreen and cannonball into this list of the definitive songs of summer.

The best Los Angeles movies of all time

The best Los Angeles movies of all time

Despite being the home of Hollywood, ‘LA movies’ seem less exalted as a subgenre than ‘New York movies’, or London movies, or Paris movies, or Rome movies. Maybe it just seems a bit too meta, or perhaps it’s because the city occupies such a polarising spot in the collective consciousness. (To love Los Angeles is to hate it, and to hate it is to really, really hate it.) In any case, the list of truly great LA movies is a bit tighter than those taking place in other large metropolises. But those films cover a lot of ground, from dramas set in the showbiz world to gritty thrillers depicting the inner city, fizzy-headed musical comedies to shadowy noirs that make the most of that twinkling, imposing skyline. Here’s our ranking of the 57 best Los Angeles movies of all-time. Recommended: 🔥 The 100 best movies ever made.📽️ The best LA movie theaters to visit.🌕 LA’s best outdoor movies to see this summer.

The best places to hike in the US

The best places to hike in the US

Is there anything more appealing than taking a decent amount of time off work, upgrading all your exploring kit, maybe justifiably splashing out on a new tent... and then driving to any one of the most beautiful national parks in the world, being surrounded by stunning natural beauty and with nothing but the sound of nature to accompany you, embarking on a personal journey of discovery. No..? Thought not. Well, you're in the right place. We’ve got you covered with our roundup of the very best places to hike in the US, which include bucket-list canyon descents, breathtaking oceanside walks, treks packed with color-popping leaves and much more.

The 60 best love songs of all time

The 60 best love songs of all time

From yearning ballads to wrenching declarations of need, from madrigals to metal, the history of music is the history of love songs, and vice versa. And yes, there have been a lot of syrupy, formulaic declarations of affection churned out for the pop charts over the years, but that’s not what we’re about here. While you’ll find some great pop ballads on this list, they’re foremost here as a reflection of the glorious breadth of what constitutes a love song, a form claimed by no one genre. The only constant is that the best love songs express sentiments that we’d struggle to put into words in real life. They’re touching, comforting and uplifting all at the same time. Sometimes the music says as much as the words; sometimes the words are more powerful than the most beautiful of poems. Of course, there are days when a great love song is the last thing you want to hear. When that happens, head to our list of the best breakup songs instead.

The best fast food restaurants in the US

The best fast food restaurants in the US

Just because it's called 'fast food' doesn't mean it has to be 'inferior food.' From iconic originals like Taco Bell’s burrito-quesadilla hybrid Quesarito to reliable standards like a simple fresh-made burger, fast food restaurants offer an array of hand-held goodies that will satisfy your hunger fast. Now more than ever, the options are dizzying, and no matter where you live you likely have dozens of options within a short drive. Perhaps you seek out the absolute best restaurants in America, be it Mexican, Italian, French or some other cuisine type. But sometimes there’s nothing better than a pit stop at one of the best fast food restaurants in the country. Whether hitting up the drive-thru for a quick meal or a hangover cure, there are many worthy occasions when fast food eats (including burger joints, chicken chains, Americanized Mexican spots and other fast food favorites) are the way to go. So which fast food chain is the best? Here are our favorites, and you’re sure to find one in your neighborhood. If not, start planning your next road trip so you can visit these spots along the way while checking out the best places to visit in the US (and if you can find a good fast food joint, our list of the best gas station snacks will help).

The best See’s Candies, ranked

The best See’s Candies, ranked

With a century of candymaking under its belt and a place in every chocolate-loving native Angeleno’s heart, See’s Candies is the confectionary of Southern California. At the holidays, in chocolate shops throughout the year and in LAX kiosks galore, that white-and-black box means just one thing: quality confections. Charles A. See and his mother, Mary—the adorable woman who’s served as the brand’s figurehead in that black-and-white photo for decades—never could have imagined that their company would become an icon of Los Angeles, even going so far as to set up shop within the TCL Chinese Theater (then still known as Grauman’s) in 1920s Hollywood. To taste See’s is to love it, and nearly everyone has a die-hard favorite flavor. To get to the bottom of the absolute top, we asked See’s to send and recommend their best—and believe us, there are dozens upon dozens of options—and in return, they sent us 28 varieties. Our editorial team tasted our way through them all, and maybe—maybe—had a little too much chocolate (and learned that yes, there is such a thing, but even when we didn’t love the flavor combinations, the See’s chocolate is always stellar quality). Here are our descriptions of each variety, along with in-the-moment reactions as we figured out which rules the See’s candy kingdom.

McCarren Hotel & Pool

McCarren Hotel & Pool

4 out of 5 stars

Looking for a dose of the decidedly newer, shinier and—dare we say it—friendlier Williamsburg, Brooklyn? Look no further than this high-end boutique hotel, located just across the street McCarren Park, the sort of Central Park of this bohemian, North Brooklyn nabe. With 64 mid-century-designed rooms, ranging from compact 240-square-foot queens to a two-balconies-boasting penthouse, McCarren Hotel & Pool has Brooklyn-by-way-of-Miami vibe. On one hand, there are local touches like mini fridges packed with brewed-down-the-street Brooklyn Lagers and cheeky DO NOT DISTURB signs with quotes from borough favorites like Rosie Perez, and on the other, the bright and breezy décor (floor-to-ceiling windows, off-kilter decorative light bulbs) have a levity that screams beachside retreat. Take the hotel’s biggest draw, its backyard pool and deck, which is outfitted with cozy poolside beds, which can comfortably fit two, candy-colored wall murals, an island-vacation-worthy bar, a house-spinning DJ and, of course, the four-foot-deep lukewarm beauty of a pool. (No matter what room you opt for, we recommend one facing the pool—there’s nothing like seeing the glowing water below you at night to make you forget, for a moment, you’re in New York.) The tropical atmosphere continues on the rooftop, which is decked out in black-and-white–striped couches, an ivy-covered wall and lots of summery vegetation, and pumps reggae and other chilled-out, good-time tunes.

The best new music that benefits Black Lives Matter, other worthy organizations

Over the past two weeks, artists of all stripes have taken to the streets, their studios, social media and elsewhere to fight the good fight.

アメリカでの旅行、より安全な交通手段や宿泊施設はどれか

アメリカでの旅行、より安全な交通手段や宿泊施設はどれか

アメリカの一部の国立公園やビーチが再びオープンし、外出禁止令が緩和されている都市や州も増えてきている。そのため、「アメリカでの旅行は可能か?」「旅行しても大丈夫だろうか?」と、考えている人は多いだろう。 飛行機やレンタカー、Airbnb、ホテルの宿泊、電車などについての現状をまとめた。これらの旅のオプションをどう安全に利用すべきかについては、アメリカ疾病予防管理センター(CDC)のガイドラインを紹介しよう。また、アメリカを旅行するなら、どのオプションを利用しようが以下の対策はマストだ。 ・6フィート(約1.8メートル)の社会的距離を保つ・マスクや手袋を着用する・定期的に手を洗う・人が触れるような場所を適切に消毒する 言うまでもないが、われわれは医療の専門家ではない。以下の情報は、全員が安全についてできることを、知り得る限りで調べたものだ。各自でも気をつけながら旅行をしてほしい。   Photograph: Shutterstock   1.アメリカの国内線 利用は可能か アメリカ中で飛行機の利用は可能だ。コロナ禍で、多くの航空会社が以下のように運用を変更している。 ・搭乗開始前に、消毒剤をまく・HEPAフィルターを利用し、1時間に何十回も空気を循環させる・機内食や飲み物サービスの代わりとなる、飲食物の持ち込みを推奨する・客室乗務員全員のマスク着用を義務付ける※各航空会社のサイトで、利用条件を必ず確認すること 米国運輸保安局(TSA)は最近、空港での新しいガイドラインを発表した。CNBCが伝えたように、搭乗券は係員に手渡すのではなく、印刷したものやスマホで表示したものを自分でスキャンするようになる。さらに、マスク着用は必須で、空港内には手指消毒剤コーナーが設置される。消毒剤は機内への持ち込みも可能になる。現在のところ、連邦政府の指示による乗客の健康状態チェックは実施されていない。 利用するべきか どちらかといえば、「ノー」に近い。出発地と目的地がある州の最新の感染対策状況をCDCのサイトで事前にチェックして検討するべきだろう。さらに問題は、いったん機内へ乗り込んでしまうと、たとえより厳しいガイドラインが設定されていたとしても、他人と6フィートの距離を保つことが難しいとういうことだ。CDCは、「もしあなたやあなたの愛する人たちが、新型コロナによって重病になる可能性が高いのなら、家族を訪ねるための旅行は特に危険かもしれない」 と注意を促している。旅の計画を中止にするのであれば、アメリカ運輸省が設定している返金などの条件を確認するといいだろう。 2. Airbnb 利用は可能か 利用は可能だ。USAトゥデイによると、Airbnb社は任意の運営手順を発表した。それには適切なクリーニング方法や、次のレンタルまで最低24時間の間隔をとることなどを記載した40ページのマニュアルが含まれているという。 利用するべきか おそらく大丈夫だ。上記の運営手順は必須ではなく任意であり、注意を促しているのみだと認識しておくべきだろう。また、クリーニング用品を持参し、チェックイン後に手早く消毒することも検討する価値がある。予約する前に、出発地、滞在地における、最新の感染対策状況も確認しよう。最後に、個室やシェアルームではなく、「まるまる貸切」タイプの物件をレンタルすることを強くおすすめする。もちろん、他人との接触を極力減らすためだ。 3. ホテル 利用は可能か 多くのホテルが営業している。CNNによると、静電スプレー機による消毒、静電気を利用したスプレー式の掃除機や、非

Parks and Recreation returns with a new episode next week

Parks and Recreation bid adieu to viewers five years back after seven glorious seasons, so imagine our delight and surprise when we came across this tweet from Adam Scott just a bit ago:   New Parks episode in one week! Can’t wait for everyone to see it... https://t.co/4yK66hZVzr — Adam Scott (@mradamscott) April 23, 2020 That's right: The goings on of Pawnee, Indiana will continue to, erm, go on—at least for one night. The episode airs next Thursday, April 30 at 8:30pm ET on NBC and benefits Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund. As Deadline points out, the timely scripted ep follows Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) as she tries to keep in touch with the gang virtually, and the cast (Poehler and Scott, as well as Rashida Jones, Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir and Retta) is all onboard.  Here's what Parks co-creator Michael Schur had to say about it: "I sent a hopeful email to the cast, and they all got back to me within 45 minutes. Our old Parks and Rec team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life, and we hope everyone enjoys it."   We're sure we will.

Next Sunday, catch Kesha, Adam Lambert, Sharon Stone and others in GLAAD's live-streaming benefit

What are you plans next Sunday evening? Nothing, you say? Funny, same here. If you're looking to cap of your weekend by checking out a star-studded event that donates to a very worthy cause, consider tuning in to Together in Pride: You Are Not Alone, which live-streams on YouTube on Sunday, April 26 at 8pm ET. The night boasts performances by the likes of Kesha and Melissa Etheridge and drop-ins by Time Out New York cover stars Matt Bomer and Billy Eichner, as well as Adam Lambert, Sharon Stone, Dan Levy, Sean Hayes, Lilly Singh and Bebe Rexha, among many others.   The shindig hopes to bring awareness to the LGBTQ community's struggles during this difficult time, and donations from the live-stream go towards CenterLink LGBTQ centers. Here's what GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis has to say on the event: “At a time when some LGBTQ people could be isolating in homes that are not affirming, GLAAD is bringing together the biggest LGBTQ stars and allies to send messages of love, support and acceptance. So many LGBTQ people, especially our youth, depend on support from local community centers around the country, and during this time of financial distress, we must come together as a community to ensure that all LGBTQ organizations can continue their life-saving work.” Looking for more live-streamed entertainment?

Radiohead are streaming a new concert film every week

Radiohead are streaming a new concert film every week

Radiohead have announced yet another new way to rock out from the comfort and safety of your couch. Starting Thursday, April 9 – that's today – at 10pm BST, the iconic outfit will unveil a concert from its archives on its YouTube channel and continue to do so each week for the foreseeable future. First up? ‘Live from a Tent in Dublin’ from October 2000, which, as Pitchfork points out, happened less than a week after the band dropped its game-changing opus ‘Kid A’. (I was lucky enough to catch Radiohead the following summer in Chicago and can say with supreme – okay, with my – authority that the band's rendition of 'The National Anthem' during that time alone makes this worth checking out.) Here's a bit of the band's statement on the news:  "Now that you have no choice whether or not you fancy a quiet night in, we hereby present the first of several LIVE SHOWS from the Radiohead Public Library. [W]e will be releasing one a week until either the restrictions resulting from current situation are eased, or we run out of shows. Which will be first? No one knows."  No, no one does. But be sure to tune in tonight. Check out the gig below from 10pm BST (5pm EDT, 8am AEDT): Need more fun things to do at home?

Fenway Park's organist is playing live-streamed sets every day

Fenway Park's organist is playing live-streamed sets every day

Baseball season might be up in the air at the moment, but that hasn't stopped Fenway Park's organist from tickling the ivories to keep the vibes of America's pastime going. According to NPR, Josh Kantor plays a 30-minute set each day from his home in Cambridge. The gigs go down daily at 3pm ET, and you can tun in via Kantor's Facebook page, 7th-Inning Stretch. What's more, he's taking requests—yesterday, he tackled tracks by Smokey Robinson, REM and Bob Marley, among others, all with a distinctly I-feel-like-I'm-at-the-ballpark aesthetic—and politely asks that you donate to food banks during each live-stream. He also tells the non-profit he's "committed to doing it every single day (what's a weekend?) until people get sick of it or until baseball starts up."    So be sure to nab a cold one, a hotdog and some delivered-to-your-door box of Cracker Jack and take in the tunes. Searching for more sweet virtual gigs to duck into? We're regularly updating our rundown of the best live-streamed concerts and DJ nights happening throughout the world.

Ask Rick from 'Tiger King' your burning questions on Saturday

Rick Kirkham, that ever-puffing-away TV producer who's featured throughout this little-known Netflix docuseries called 'Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,' is getting in on the live-streaming action. (We're obviously kidding about that little-known stuff: The hit series has seemingly been seen by everyone at this point. There's even talk of a bonus episode, and we've compiled these life lessons we learned and cooked up a guide to what to watch after plowing through the show.) Anyway. Kirkham, who lived at the G.W. Zoo for a year while filming a reality show on 'Tiger' star Joe Exotic, plans to share unseen footage and answer fans' queries on Saturday, April 11 at 7pm BST over at allthingslive.inplayer.com. Per the press release, "viewers can submit questions for Kirkham by posting a video on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #AskTigerRick, or by sending an email to asktigerrick@allthingslive.com." Kirkham apparently has a lot to say, as evidenced by these quoted nuggets from said press release: "Joe was terrified of big cats, and he had plans to release all the animals on the park if someone tried to shut his zoo down. He wanted as many people to be injured as possible if they tried to take his zoo away." Then there's this: "[Joe] acted as a doctor to those of us in the park, giving injections and medications (meant for animals) to us when we were sick." And lastly, um, this: "Joe had an odd relationship and fascination with female porn stars."   Enjoy.  Looking for

That deal also extends to those with "existing eCredits or canceled travel from flights in March, April or May 2020," according to Delta's latest travel policy. And if purchased tix outside that window, note the following: "Tickets purchased between March 1 and May 31, 2020, can be changed without a change fee for up to a year from the date you purchased it." (That latter one-year flexibility policy is what most airlines are sticking to for the time being.)    About that two-year deal though: It's great news for travelers, and hopefully other airlines follow suit. (Not to make this about me, but, um, I'm going to: I recently had to cancel my trip to SXSW in Austin. The airline, which I will not name here, did call me back about rescheduling, albeit days after takeoff. Again, understandable. And it's a minor complaint. But it was…frustrating.)    Searching for some at-home entertainment before your next trip? Of course you are. We've got you covered with online party games you can play remotely with friends, streaming recs for Tiger King obsessives, a how-to on signing up for Yale's super-popular happiness course and digital jigsaw puzzles.     

John Mulaney and Nick Kroll's Oh, Hello podcast says (oh) hello to the world tomorrow

John Mulaney and Nick Kroll's Oh, Hello podcast says (oh) hello to the world tomorrow

In 2016, we had the pleasure—nay, honor—of having Gil Faizon (played by Nick Kroll) and George St. Geegland (John Mulaney) grace the cover of Time Out New York. (That's a shot from our walk around the Lower East Side with the guys above, just before they complained a lot, then listed their favorite places in NYC.) Back then, the New York curmudgeons were about to bring Oh, Hello to Broadway. Today, we learned that the pair have decided to step up—well, not up, exactly but step…somewhere?—to the world of podcasts. As New Yorkers, they're practicing social distancing and decided to cook up this pod. Here's a preview of the show, which is one of the funniest things we read all day:  "She was the People’s Princess, and they were two men who hung out at Duane Reade. But now worlds have collided. From the stars of Oh, Hello on Broadway and the video taped version of Oh, Hello on Broadway comes a podcast on the life and death of Princess Diana. "It's also a podcast on the life and loves of George St. Geegland (Oh, Hello on Broadway, TED Talk Submission) and Charmed I’m Sure Gil Faizon (Oh, Hello on Broadway, Nestle commercial web-only, can do French accent)."  You can subscribe to Oh, Hello: the P'dcast here and check out a teaser of the show below. Looking for more pods to help fill your days? We've rounded up the best podcasts to listen to right now.  

The Democratic National Convention is moving to August

The Democratic National Convention is moving to August

Like seemingly every other planned big event in the country, this year's Democratic National Convention has been pushed back a while—to the week of August 17, to be exact. The convention was originally slotted to kick off July 13 and was expected to bring an estimated 50,000 out-of-towners to Milwaukee, many of them packing in the brand-new Fiserv Forum. (In fact, it was such a big deal that we created a nifty brewery crawl through the home of the 2020 DNC—the beloved metropolis we call Milwaukee is also known as Brew City—and hailed it as one of the most exciting things to do in the USA in 2020.)  Yesterday, Joe Biden told Jimmy Fallon, during a virtual interview for The Tonight Show, "I doubt whether the Democratic Convention is going to be able to be held in mid-July. I think it's going to have to move into August." And today, that gut feeling proved true, with convention CEO Joe Solmonese saying, "In our current climate of uncertainty, we believe the smartest approach is to take additional time to monitor how this situation unfolds so we can best position our party for a safe and successful convention." The delay in DNC festivities now puts it just a week before the Republican National Convention, which is still expected to happen the week of August 24 in Charlotte. Prepare—for now—to witness back-to-back conventions, and check out Biden's at-home Tonight Show interview below:
