Thirty-eight years after his death, Elvis Presley’s music has lost none of its power. While he may have been rock ‘n’ roll’s finest singer, his status as ‘King’ is debated to this day. Whatever your take, one listen to that truly golden voice on classic songs like “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock” and it’s clear that 50,000,000 Elvis fans can’t be wrong.

Just in case you’re gravitating more towards scary movies check out either Mike Flanagan’s latest horror film Oculus or spooky mixed with a tab bit of humor in A Haunted House 2, featuring funny guy Marlon Wayans.

Take a look at the full ranking below.

  2. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Includes Bonus Featurette)

Workout Mix: Hip Hop

Get into the zone with this carefully selected mix of hard-hitting hip-hop tracks, perfect for the gym or when out running.

New Releases: Mid-August, 2014

If you’re not enjoying the new album from Spoon, they you have a serious lack of rock ‘n’ roll in your life. The rest of this mix contains som great new tracks from Tom Petty and Sinead O’Connor, while Ryan Adams embraces his inner-Eagles, Shabazz Palaces creates some cosmic hip-hop, and Kimbra creates a new disco classic.

Underground Metal

We take a closer look at a selection of newly released underground and more experimental metal – covering genres from progressive to black metal, post-hardcore and noise-rock.

Remembering Robin Williams

We pay tribute to the Oscar™, GRAMMY, and Emmy-winning actor and revolutionary standup comedian. Working at hyper speed, Robin Williams’ comedy style was unique enough to get him cast as an alien on Mork & Mindy while he was also adept at playing introspective loners in such films as Awakenings, The World According To Garp and Good Will Hunting. While there are children’s songs on this mix, his standup, perhaps hard to listen to in light of his personal demons, is definitely for adults only. Rest in Peace.

Definitive 1990s Alt Rock Hits

In the 1990s alternative rock crossed over to the mainstream with Nirvana, Green Day, Pavement, and Beck leading the American charge. Across the Atlantic Radiohead, Oasis, and Blur brought new life to the British scene. 1980s veterans like U2, R.E.M., Sonic Youth, and Paul Weller continued to influence the ‘90s alt sound.

Classical New Releases

The Red Hot musical series’ latest offering tips its hat to Bach, offering a diverse and daring look at his lasting influence on everything from classical to jazz to modern pop. Richard Reed Parry is the latest indie rocker to go classical while Max Richter showcases his continued interest in combining the Old World with new, purposely glitch, technology. Tamsin Waley-Cohen and Daniel Hope are also two young performers who dazzle while Kronos Quartet have now been experimenting for over four decades.
