Every week on Sunday or Monday I look at one of Billboard charts and choose one of the top five songs to be my song of the week. This weeks song is If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away by Justin Moore First things first. If there was any other chart that had songs worth listening to on them, I would post those. But as it is, there isn’t really any […]

Chances are you know what a piano is. But have you ever heard of a Bazantar? In this post, I will show you some of the strangest instruments currently in use around the globe. If you don’t know them, don’t feel bad. If you do know them, well, I would like you to come guest post for me some time. Please note, these are not in any particular order, I […]

Note, this review will be a little more expansive then my Born This Way review. For two reasons. One, I liked this album more, two that last review was a little lacking. You may recall that I posted yesterday about how excited I was about the new Owl City album, All Things Bright and Beautiful (ATBAB). Unfortunately, I’m not a big important person, so I wasn’t getting it until it […]

Yes, this post is a little abnormal, but normality is boring. I’m stoked. Excited. For tomorrow is the day. THE DAY. Don’t know what “The Day” is? Let me educate you. Don’t feel bad for not knowing, I don’t blame you one bit. Once upon a time there was a 20 year old who worked loading trucks at a Coke factory. Unfortunately, this guy was an insomniac and had lots […]

Song: Help is On The Way Artist: Rise Against Chart: Rock Peak: 3 Currently: 3 Peak on Hot 100: Not Charted Currently: Not Charted My thoughts: Not my style at all. Although I can see how a song like this could make it to the top of the charts, I don’t particularly enjoy it myself. I have my mother’s dreams, I have my father’s eyes, You can’t take that from […]

Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.” —Shinichi Suzuki What an incredibly wonderful idea. The Suzuki method is a technique for teaching and learning music that has gotten much attention over the past several years. People like […]

You know, I’m a bit of an Apple enthusiast. I try to learn about every new product announcement as it is happening, I own a iPod touch, wish I had a Mac, and use iTunes excessively. Needless to say, when Apple made their keynote presentation on Monday to kick of the annual World Wide Developers Conference, I was paying close attention. And what we heard was quite something. The banner […]

Song: I Won’t Let Go Artist: Rascal Flatts Chart: Country Peak: 2 Currently: 3 Peak on Hot 100: 31 Currently: 31 My Thoughts: Dang I like this song. Rascal Flatts is one of those bands I don’t listen to terribly often, but wish I did. I love there music. This song is not really “country” per se, but I’ll take it. I really enjoyed it and loved the piano. Awesome. […]

So you may be wondering to yourself “What does this guy listen to? I mean, he tells us everything about music, but what does he actually like?” Well, I’m here to help you out with that. No, I’m not telling you my favorite artist, I’m going to let you find out for yourself! I listen to quite a bit of music. So much, in fact that even I can’t keep […]

Oh yes, you had better believe it. On Saturday I had a couple hours of driving to do. I decided that I might as well listen to the album and then review it here. Which is exactly what I did. I listened to the whole album, (minus part of one track, which I will get to later) and now, here I am. Lady Gaga continues to confound me. I have […]
