Top 10 CDs of 2011...
So 2011 has finally come and gone and now I can sit down and take stock of what music really worked for me this year.  It was a strange year for music, one where some sounds were going back 20 years, some 40 years and some even further back.  I’m not sure if this is a reflection... 
I’m in a Jam...
When it comes to music, I guess I can be considered a little old school.  Not so much old school as in Big Daddy Kane (although you should hear me do a verse of Smooth Operator), but more in the sense that I tend to like a lot of older tracks, things from when I was younger, but... 
Top 10 CDs of 2010...
Well, sometimes I like to laugh at myself and to be honest, there is a lot to laugh about.  So I’m having a little chuckle here, because I just wrote a post about how I haven’t written a post in a while and how I was probably going to do a Top CDs of 2010 blog and here... 
Aye Laggie, I Missed Ya...
Hopefully by now you know that I am an incurable music junkie. A few thousand CDs, a bunch of vinyl and thousands of digital downloads on an external drive are part of my collection. I don’t get out to as much live music as I would like, but I think I will start doing some more... 
Telling Stories Through...
Right now I am totally hooked on the latest release from Plan B called The Defamation of Strickland Banks.  Overall, I really enjoy the music, for a variety of reasons.  I like the fact that it has some old soul mixed into it, with a definite Motown feel to it.  This isn’t... 
Songs Stuck In My Head...
There are some songs that are in my head all of the time, simply because they are really good songs and are some of my favourites of all time. They have a justifiable reason to be in my head. They are the old community, the post-war homes that were established with reason. They have... 
Music and Silos
Music and Silos...
Right now, I’m listening to a bunch of old songs by The Smiths, who at one time in my youth, were a favourite band. I used to have “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” on repeat in my headphones…and by “repeat”, I mean, play, take the tape out,... 
Guilty (Musical) Pleasu...
Not the greatest day today.  I needed some music to make me feel good.  So what did I go to?  Prepare to laugh.  Billy Talent.  Yep.  Remember how a little while ago, we were talking about how everybody has their secret crushes?  Well, this is sort of the same... 
Wu-Tang Sampling the Be...
Well, it isn’t true, turns out Wu-Tang did a rework of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, not a sample, but either way, you should have a listen to it.  Download it here and please try to ignore the whispers of “Loud.com” throughout the song.   Love the song,... 
Certain Certainties...
There are certain things in life that are certain to happen.  The cliched (death and taxes) the overlooked (heartbreak, sorrow), there are some things you just can’t avoid.  So, that’s why everybody in the world knew Britney’s return was going to be disastrous. ...
