A well done cover of one of my favorite movie soundtrack songs. Originally done by Frou Frou than made famous by Zach Braff in the final scene of Garden State. Watched it countless times back in 2005. Been a fan of Imogen Heap’s complicated one woman band since. Pretty sure this is the only song I have of Boys Like Girls on my Classic IPod. Pretty obvious that I looped it into the Garden State soundtrack roster. Those Pop Punk bands of the mid 2000s didn’t really make an impact on me. Yellowcard was probably the only one. AAR maybe? Not sure. When I think back it’s hard to keep track of all those insignificant era bands. All blended together. Screaming at frat parties. Luckily, one of their songs made an impact on me. Probably more that I can’t remember.
Our new/old Legal lady pissed me off yesterday. She made a big deal about a very minor thing that she didn’t catch nor couldn’t change. She fought with the whole idea of it all and ultimately said something infront of all the bosses trying to move the blame from herself. I moved the blame off me by saying that our photo lady…who I don’t like and consider a total worthless bitch…didn’t say anything to me. I looked at it earlier and looked fine. You’d think a national magazine would try to put celebrities in the best light. Anyway, expecting fallout. I’m increasingly feeling numb over the course each passing day. It’s like being stuck in a bad marriage/long term relationship. It’s been almost five years. Kind of want to see new ‘people’. Guess I have to get off my lazy ass & start filling out job offers. That would start.
In all my years with this company I’ve never reached this ‘rock bottom’ before. However, there’s nothing keeping me here except for me. The Alpha & The Omega. I’d feel safer if I was more financially stable. Working on that.
Wing Night tonight. Looking forward to shooting the breeze & instagramming pictures. Here’s to letting go…
BTW: Shoutout to my sister! It’s her birthday today. This song is dedicated to you!
“Sleep pretty darling…” Oh, I wish I could. Full day yesterday ended with a showcase at the Bootleg Theater. One of the openers bumped their indie R&B take on R. Kelly’s “I Wish“. Sky was quite impressive. Surpassed my preconceived judgmental thoughts. Loved the lasers. More on that with our official showcase. Gotta wait a bit. The very raw, disappointing, pictures coming Friday evening. [Focused mainly on crowd shots.] Wing Night is the priority on Thursday. All other things are meaningless.
I want to talk you about this track. A small portion & taste of the Beatles historic / legendary Abbey Road Medley that punctuates their legacy so beautifully. Yes, Beatles lovers. ’Abbey Road’ is my record of choice in the life long debate of which record is best. Why? Just is. The first time I ever heard the medley was on the Beatles Abbey Road special as performed the Counting Crows. That special made me a fan of the legendary band forcing me to catch up quick. Still blame Sugarland for that. Their country cover of ‘Come Together‘ still give me chills. Recall replaying the performance on my TiVo on countless sleepless college nights.
No, I wasn’t hipster enough back in high school to be one of those music savvy boys that are more pretentious than you imagine. That ignorant kid, me, judged most music before my time as ‘My Father’s Music’. Kind of hard not to, you should see his Vinyl collection. Puts my current catalog to shame. The same collection that is inherited to me in the future. *wink* Happy I became a fan when I did. The Beatles (…Stones, Clapton, BB King, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Bee Gees, etc.) would’ve been wasted on that know-nothing boy of 16. Secretly, because of my parents, the code was written within me at a early age…and the Abbey Road tribute was the secret song to open the mysterious vault hiding away in my musical soul.
Because you made it this far, gonna give you the second half of Abbey Road’s Side B Medley starting off with “Golden Slumbers” and ending with “Your Majesty”. You should know it. Otherwise, he’s a musical teaching lesson. For it’s impossible for me to only share one. It’s a weight I carry everyday. Musical perfection to treat yourself with.
Want a female perspective on Timberlake’s masculine ’Suit & Tie’? Taking the helm is Mindy White (of The States). Check out her cover of the radio smash above. Can say it’s very bluesy. Made for Summer.
Wanted to write the original song which is Game of FUCKIN thrones. Just wanted to say this. In an offering I considered to be a weird combo, B4M favorite chiptune rockers — Anamanaguchi — do their magic with the iconic Game of Thrones theme by adding unnecessary comical lyrics. Oh, the nintendo remember.
You do. In promotion for Mr. Buble’s 2013 release — ‘To Be Loved‘ — Michael brings you the colorful video sampler for his cover of Frank Sintara’s “You Make Me Feel So Young”. One of my favorite tracks of all time is so damn catchy from the modern day crooner.
‘To Be Loved‘ drops April 23rd.
A ‘Dixie Chick’ flys solo, #afterthebreak…
Happy Valentine’s Day from The xx. This performance is just magical. Makes me forget about Beyonce’s version. Cheers to CoS for providing such amazing music everyday. Chilling.
When you’re home tonight with that loved one– turn off the lights, open that aging bottle of wine over on the counter, spark the fireplace, hit play then grab him or her and proceed to the dance floor. Which is hopefully is represented by a rug. All you have to do after that is just sway. Back and forth. You feel it. In your bones. Mine’s stuck in my hips. Controlling everything above the waist. Let the smooth Jazz do all the work.
We’ll transition out of this bluesy phase tomorrow with something poppy. Thursday’s the one you have to keep an ear out for. With 15,000 songs at my disposal what will be the song to celebrate a yearly day of love? Wait & See. Also a playlist of my favorites that won’t be making 1st song appearances will appear tonight or tomorrow.
Rearranged our site a bit yesterday. Been awhile since we updated. Now, it’s sleeker than ever. Like a luxury car. Have a feeling I’m gonna move away from overly posting new music and videos and try sticking with 1st songs & concert reviews. Like LA Music Blog. It’s not that I don’t like the music videos or new audio. Probably the best part about this website, but finding that the focus needs to be concerts. Don’t you agree? Still blaming myself for Sunday night. Like a girl you had the opportunity to kiss but didn’t. All the regret that follows is my current state. I’d be lying that I’m not use to it. Quite numb. But still feeling bad. I’ll catch JT again. Make it a night worth remembering. Strangely, not feeling anything from 20/20 so far.
Who’s next? Slated is Tiesto first Saturday in March at Staples. My first BIG…SUPER BIG…EDM showcase. Last EDM one was Girl Talk back in 2011. Have low expectations. Then the big Austin Adventure. Not thinking that far ahead. Here’s our Tuesday song. More words tomorrow…
A cover version of a cover as newcomer Anton Ewald gives you his simple acoustic take on Childish Gambino’s cover / remix of Kanye West’s “All of the Lights”. Worth checking out.
Do the research:
Ben Howard returned to the BBC Radio 1 Lounge to perform Ellie Goulding’s “Figure 8″ and like “Call Me Maybe” knocks it out of the fucking park. You can thank Fearne for this historic gem.
An unlike other ‘awesome’ sites, we actually got the video. Shazam!
