June 27, 2016: Monday Funday Dance Party!

Guaranteed to get you up and moving before the boss notices you’re late (Actually, it’s 11:00 AM my time right now, so I think that ship has sailed).

I was looking at the Facepagething, and someone posted this: Despite the fact that I owned Super Session for many years, I only listened to it once or twice, and didn’t remember “Season of the Witch.” Donovan wrote and recorded the original. Donovan fun fact: That’s Jimi Page (of the Firm and also Led Zeppelin)… Continue reading 6/14/16

5/23/16: Monday Funday Dance Party!

There. Now you’ll be singing this to yourself all day long. I know I will. Back in the late 90’s, even jaded grunge enthusiasts had to begrudgingly (be-grungily?) admit how much fun this song is. And for the younger crowd, this was a perfect pop-crush band; three cute brothers, and one for every age range.… Continue reading 5/23/16: Monday Funday Dance Party!

Written by Randy Newman, the original version of “Mama Told Me Not to Come” was recorded by Eric Burdon, and of course Three Dog Night had a big hit with it in 1970. But right now, this version by Tom Jones + Stereophonics is my favorite. Great, great, singing, and I love the guitar solo.… Continue reading 4/4/16: Monday Funday Dance Party!

4/1/2016: No April Fool’s joke, just a regular old article about music.

I love listening to different versions of the same song, especially when both are terrific. A couple of my favorites are “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” which was recorded by both Gladys Night & the Pips and Marvin Gaye (of course, a lot of other bands have covered it, too). Interesting that both artists… Continue reading 4/1/2016: No April Fool’s joke, just a regular old article about music.
