The power – of Cher and Amy

Rather inexplicably, I found myself listening to Amy Grant today. Specifically, it was her 1994 album House of Love, which I never liked as much as I did 1991’s Heart In Motion.  I suppose that it was probably appropriate, since … Continue reading

Best of 2014: The Year In Concerts

It’s mid December so I feel like it’s ok to start looking back at 2014. It was a pretty good year overall. We finally got a diagnosis of sorts for what’s been making my wife so sick for the last … Continue reading

Daydream Believer / Anne Murray

So here we are, November 30th and I’m on the 30th song. It was a little bit of a circuitous route to this point, but I’m here and in my book, that’s a win. I’m sorry if I didn’t get … Continue reading

Crush / Jennifer Paige

Private Eyes / Daryl Hall & John Oates

I wasn’t going to pick another 80s song for tonight’s post, but I ended up hearing a version of this song (more about that later) on the way back from running errands tonight. It sounded so good I knew it … Continue reading

I Want It All

Is it wrong to say that I was totally sucked into listening to Karmin’s new song on Spotify last night because of the extremely eye-catching cover art?  Because if it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right. Anna and I … Continue reading

Jewel was one of those artists that I always almost liked. “Who Will Save Your Soul” still grates on me. “You Were Meant For Me” was a vast improvement, and I liked “Foolish Games” the first 5 million times I … Continue reading

Kiss and Make Up

It’s not the end of the world, it’s just the start of me and you

I expected a lot of things this year.  A new Kylie Minogue single was NOT one of them. But as it turns out, we’re getting one anyway, to which I can only say YAY!  A thousand times YAY! And what’s … Continue reading
