Whatever happened to…. (2)

Hello, all! Kim here again. Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments on last week’s “Whatever happened to….” featuring The Prodigy! I’m back this week with another singer from the 90s. Let’s see if you remember her… Meredith Brooks is undoubtedly best known for her hit single “Bitch,” from 1997. That track much sums…

Whatever happened to….

Hello there, folks! Kim here, with a new and hopefully successful addition to the site, “Whatever happened to?” Wednesdays. The premise is exactly like it sounds: every Wednesday, I, or another Music Mama, will revisit a favorite band or artist from the distant or even recent past that we haven’t heard from in a while…

Mumford’s the Word…at Music Savvy Mom

Music Mama Ri here.  You all know by now (I’d imagine), that I’ve given birth to a number of websites.  The one you’re currently reading is  in “the family”, but it wasn’t the firstborn.  Nope – my eldest…my personal and secret favorite is my blog,  Music Savvy Mom. Of course, as a parent, I know…

More Mamas = More Music

“People!  I’ve had an epiphany!” – Rango.  And now, Music Mama Ri. Yes, much like the beloved cinematic Johnny Deppian lizard, I have come to a realization…a point at which that giant bingo ball tosser thing has abruptly stopped on the winning numbers…when the roulette wheel has ceased to spin, landing on 21 black –…

Footloose remake: Totally rad or totally bad?

The much talked about release of the remake of ’80s classic Footloose hits theaters Oct. 14. Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough play the lead roles.

If I was her, I’d say yes….

Since I absolutely suck at catchy titles, that’s the one you’re getting.  But the story that goes with it is oh-so cute! This boy that my sons go to school with needs a date for Junior Prom. And who has he asked? None other than Taylor Swift! And he’s asked her by cleverly re-working her…

It would make ME spend more. Just sayin’.

The calendar tells us that it is not yet December and therefore logically not yet time for the enjoyment of the Christmas themed music.  Retailers, however…apparently immune to convention and  the chronological compendium of tradition…routinely eschew this forbearance in favor of an early and excessive plunge right into Holiday Muzak Hell.  The soul-less bastards. So,…

If you’ve ever wanted to be in a rock video

Now may be your chance! I grew up in the Hair Band era, and remember how crazy all the guys were about seeing Tawny Kitaen “shake her ass on the hood of Whitesnake’s car.” And I can’t vouch for all girls, but back then? I would have LOVED that much attention. Nowadays, I prefer writing…

Rock Of Ages Rocks.

I’m not the type of person to be stuck on one musical genre, I’m open to lots of different things. That’s not to say that I don’t have my favorites. Most people who know me personally will vouch for the fact that I’m a total 80′s freak. In fact, my best friend (who lives a…

The “Not If You Paid Me” List

As you saw the other day, us Music Mamas have been grousing about “Crimes Against Music” lately – all in good fun, of course. Which made me think of an old post I did on Greeblemonkey that was just right to resurface now. It’s a tale from when I was visiting my friend Aimee (yes,…
