Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone) by Glass Tiger
"Two Princes" by Spin Doctors
Right Here, Right Now by Jesus Jones
A woman on the radio talks about revolution when it’s already passed her by…
St. Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion) by John Parr
Ahhh, St. Valentine’s Day. I promise no cliche love song today. Actually i decided to feature a one hit wonder about a different “Saint” - One that sounds like it belongs on a “burning” Sesame Street.
All The Things She Said by t.a.t.u.
The Sochi Olympics begin today, so i thought it fitting to select Russia’s most successful musical export of the past two decades. Quite ironically (given all the controversy) this female duo made quite the splash with the video to their big hit in which they partake in extremely passionate kissing…with each other.
Monkey by George Michael
Alas, this song isn’t about Marcel or Annie’s Boobs. However, the artist singing did have his own one of these (metaphorically speaking) - although something tells me he’d much rather have had his own pair of Annie’s Boobs (NOT metaphorically speaking).
The Rhythm Of The Night by Corona
Praise You by Fatboy Slim
This British DJ had a huge hit with this dance song in 1999. The unforgettable video features a fictional “dance troop” performing an “impromptu” routine outside none other than UCLA’s Bruin Theatre in Westwood.
YEAR IN REVIEW: The Ten Best Albums of 2013
2013 is now just a memory and the musical legacy it left behind is…well…uhhhh…nothing spectacular. Good, but not great. Unlike the previous two years, when releases by Adele and Mumford & Sons became groundbreaking, iconic albums, not one release of 2014 can claim such status. But here are my picks for the ten best albums of 2013. Enjoy!
- Heartthrob - Tegan & Sara - Some say the Canadian twins sold out. I say they went through a glorious metamorphosis which produced the year’s best album.
- Bad Blood - Bastille - Unbelievably ecstatic they have taken the world by storm. Just an interesting, unorthodox debut.
- When It Was Now - Atlas Genius - Along with Bastille, Lorde, & Capital Cities, one of the year’s best new artists.
- Love lust Faith + Dreams - 30 Seconds To Mars - This is Jared Leto’s year. Oscar frontrunner and released his most poignant record to date.
- In Rolling Waves - The Naked And Famous - Annoyed that they aren’t more popular. Just an INSANELY amazing album…start to finish.
- When The Night - St. Lucia - I swear this album could’ve been the score to an 80’s classic like The Golden Child. Unique, nostalgic and lyrically euphoric.
- Native - OneRepublic - The release that solidified Ryan Tedder and gang as the group with the most CONSISTENTLY great releases.
- In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery - Capital Cities - Praying they don’t become a “one hit wonder” - It would be a terrible injustice.
- Random Access Memories - Daft Punk - Should win the Grammy for Album of the Year and an extremely solid release by the veteran electro trailblazers.
- The Bones Of What You Believe - CHVRCHES - Mark my words, this Scottish band will be a household name by the end of the decade.
OTHER ALBUMS WORTHY OF MENTION: The Blessed Unrest - Sara Bareilles; Pure Heroine - Lorde; The 1975 - The 1975; Days Are Gone - Haim; The Art Of Doing Nothing - Mark Owen; Prism - Katy Perry; In A Perfect World - Kodaline
Black Cat by Janet Jackson
Since it’s Friday the 13th i figured i’d feature a song about one of the UNLUCKIEST charms of them all!
Frozen by Madonna
You’ll have to excuse my lack of creativity for this week’s selection. Given the temperatures the past few days here in California, it’s safe to say my brain (along with everything else on my body) is well…FROZEN. One of my all time favorites from Her Majesty.
