Sunday Scoop: Songs Never Played Together

Man, was I “out there” when I picked the last Fiver or what?  Talk about all over the spectrum!  Ah, well – say what you will about the carnival ride of genres – you can’t say it was boring…

Two Old, Two New, One a Blend Just For You

Happy Friday, and welcome to the recently resurrected Fiver, wherein we post five tracks – totally blind – for your aural digestion, and impatiently await your unfettered reactions to them in the comments below.  Per the norm, we shall return again on Sunday with the Scoop – the “big reveal” that illuminates all.

You can call me Nancy

You technically can call me Nancy but I’d prefer CC. Honestly, you can call me whatever you want just don’t call me late to dinner, bitches. It’s still me, CC. If you’ve forgotten who I am (which I doubt) there’s a bio page or something around here. Figure it out. (Obviously, I’m not the pleasant…

He’s baaaacckk……

So, did everyone have a great Mother’s Day? I sure did, and hope that the rest of you lovely music-loving mamas out there did, as well! I had a day of doing nothing but watching what I wanted on tv, window shopping online, and, later that evening, seeing Dark Shadows with my oldest son and…

Merry Metallica

Dude. I was so excited to hear about the new Metallica / Lou Reed collaboration (Lulu)! But then, I heard the new Metallica / Lou Reed collaboration and I was much less excited. Thankfully, I was able to wash my ears out with Beyond Magnetic.

And Robert Plant sometimes even SOUNDS like Robert Plant!

Welcome to the Sunday Scoop, wherein we share with you the whos and whats of the most recent Friday Fiver!  Loved the comments on these – the more frequently we do this, the more I begin to predict what our “regulars” will and won’t like, and I’ll admit to sometimes even throwing one in just…

Get Ready for the NEW Footloose Soundtrack!

Who could ever forget the iconic lyrics to the Kenny Loggins classic, Footloose? “I been workin’ so hard, Keep punching my card, Eight hours, for what? Oh, tell me what I got.” Now, imagine those words sung by country music artist, Blake Shelton. Sounds interesting, huh? It gets better. Next, imagine a young Taylor Swift-esque…

Jessie and the Toy Boys

Anyone who knows me knows that I just don’t do pop music. Well, that’s sort of a lie. I actually do like a lot of songs that end up on the hot-hits-type stations, but the majority of them are by rock bands and musicians. But when the opportunity to view a tour diary webisode by…

The Death of You and Me (and Liam and Noel)

Well, it’s here…the long awaited new song from Noel Gallagher. (You remember him, right?  The brother from the now defunct British band Oasis that wasn’t Liam?) Y’see, the Gallagher boys had a falling out, with smashed guitars and everything, which effectively put the kibosh on the band continuing together. So, Liam went off with some…

…and THAT is how you abuse catgut.

Pre-release CD Review:  2Cellos Confession:  I have a strong, natural affinity for stringed instruments played with bows by attractive men. Oh, sure – I love guitars, banjos, ukuleles and the occasional upright bass…but give me a passionate Seth Lakeman or Johnny Flynn performance on the violin and I’m total mush. Well, move over Seth and…
