Favorite singles for now

A number of my favorites.  My only rule is they had to be yours also, meaning they actually had to enter the music charts (any format) at some point by June 2016.  In my opinion, these 10 songs represent a good portion of what was exciting about listening to music in the first half of […]

New Music Friday

Two (kind of) surprises were sprung onto the pop music scene this week. Rihanna‘s will it or will it not be released album Anti, was finally released to the world exclusively through Tidal on Wednesday.  Anticipation has been building since she posted her Antidiary website back in November.  Last year’s collaboration with Kanye and Paul McCartney “FourFiveSeconds” is […]

Happy Movemeber

Yes, it’s the month where men are encouraged to grow their moustaches in order to raise awareness and funds for men to live happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. In […]

Artist cameos in Films

I stole this idea straight up from Flavorwire (click on the link and watch Peter Sellers in The Road To Hong Kong. You won’t regret it).  The idea is that some of the best moments in film are when an unexpected appearance from someone with a familiar face suddenly shows up on screen (think Alfred Hitchcock).  With […]

Celebrity Branded Perfumes

Yes, it’s that time of year when major releases come out and I’m not talking about music, I’m talking about celebrity branded perfumes.  Ever wondered what a Britney Spears scent might be like?  If that’s not your speed how about the smell of 20 year old men?  Yes, One Direction has a fragrance out too. […]

Accapella with piano

In this era of remixes and adding beats to tracks it seems like simplicity is easing its way into the mainstream. Call it The Adele Factor as she struck gold with her song “Someone Like You”.   It became the first single of the decade to sell a million units in the United Kingdom and […]

Grammy Nominations

The Grammy awards have been reduced from 109 to 78 categories wisely removing the distinction between male and female performances. Of course that doesn’t mean there are still some eyebrow raising moments. The most pleasant surprise is the recognition of Bon Iver.  The song “Holocene” was nominated for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year. […]

New Music Tuesday

NPR came out with a story earlier this year asking, “How Much Does It Cost To Make A Hit Song“.  Using a 2010 song from Rihanna the number is over $1 Million (not even including the video).  Well, the Rihanna machine is back for more and apparently the formula is working as she’s got a song in […]

Naughty Lyrics

As I was watching Super 8 this weekend and the soundtrack of my life from the late ’70s played, I was SHOCKED, SHOCKED to hear that dirty lyrics were prevalent to my young impressionable ears. Take for instance Undercover Angel by Alan O’Day. Click on the picture to see the song matched up with Charlie’s […]
