We Can Get Together

I’m still on my Hold Steady kick and just thinking about History Lesson Part II, the song that mentions other artists in the lyrics.  I started thinking that there are so many other songs that mention other artists.  Here are some of my favorites.  I’ll start with The Hold Steady is they go crazy with […]

Everything that happens once can never happen again…

…But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time. I found that quote by Paulo Coelho which kind of relates to a number of this week’s music releases. First off  is The Smiths Complete which is all eight of their brilliant albums, filled with hurt, pain, awkwardness and misunderstandings.  This brilliant English band will thankfully never […]
