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…
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…
JAM & SPOON – RIGHT IN THE NIGHT
