THROWBACK THURSDAYS: WILL WE EVER SEE ANOTHER RAY CHARLES?

Image has become so vitally important in music. It’s not necessarily that today’s artists need to be pretty (although that helps immensely), but they do need to visually fit the musical style that they are representing. I doubt we’ll ever see another performer, like RAY CHARLES, rise to fame. That’s not the only thing that…



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: OF JAM & OF SPOON

If you’re a EURO enthusiast, you probably know more than one tune that features a flamenco guitar riff. Well, here’s the song that did it first, and solidified it as a musical trend…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: ALL THAT I WANT IS AN ACE OF BASE REUNION

Generally, we consider great music to come from passion inspired artistic expression. Isn’t it funny how, when it comes to POP music, that isn’t necessarily the case, at all?

Following ABBA‘s lead for arrangement, 3 Swedish siblings, and a mutual friend formed…



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: THE TEMPTATIONS SING SMOKEY

Let’s go back to a simpler time in music. Back to the year 1964, when MOTOWN ruled the charts.

THE TEMPTATIONS – MY GIRL

It’s one of the greatest songs of all time, largely due to the catchiness of the opening guitar riff which, for you music nerds, is a perfect C…



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: EXPLANING PINK FLOYD TO GEN Y

WISH YOU WERE HERE is a song and album that has been written about over and over again, in meticulous detail, by people far better researched and more connected with the music than I could ever be. I don’t have any unique perspective or new light to shed on this song, which is, without argument,…

AKINYELE – PUT IT IN YOUR MOUTH
