When you’re dancing around the house (or office) to Etta James, not much can go wrong. And with this great cover of the King Floyd classic, Monday just might turn into a funky good time.
The problem with an earworm is that it starts out as a good song. But then it gets lodged in your brain and slowly becomes torturous. I’ve got an earworm right now, and it’s a bad one: See, the problem is that I heard the song and thought it would be fun to learnContinue reading “5/4/19: Beware the earworm”
Let me make one thing clear: I have great admiration for Bill Wyman’s bass playing. Although I’ve been a Rolling Stones fan since I was 13, I’ve only recently come around to appreciating how he plays. He’s perfect for the band. With two guitarists and a highly theatrical lead singer, Bill really had to beContinue reading “4/12/19: Keith Richards, bass player”
I’m in a great mood today.
Every year, a bunch of poor groundhogs who never asked for any trouble get dragged out of their nice warm burrows by a bunch of humans in top hats.

If you’re on the East Coast, it’s pushing 3PM right now. Which means it’s just about time for some B-52’s. See if you can get a conga line going around the office. And BTW, the whole album is great. Treat yourself to a copy for the next time it’s 3PM and you need a congaContinue reading “9/12/16: Monday Funday Dance Party!”
A lot of the decisions I made as a teenager are burned into my memory. I guess it’s because this is such an intense time in your life; everything is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. For example, there’s boys. When I was in junior high school, Duran Duran were The Thing. Of course, my girlfriends and I allContinue reading “7/26/16: Playing favorites”
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 artistsContinue reading “4/1/2016: No April Fool’s joke, just a regular old article about music.”
