A lot of my friends have songs with their dads.  Popular among the crowd is Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle, Dance with my Father by Luther Vandross, Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison and the like.  These are the songs that come on over the loudspeaker of a department store and elicit a cock of the […]

How’s this for out of left field? Picture yourself 10 years ago (you know, a decade), tending to your typical ‘your age today minus 10′ kind of day.  At that point in time I was probably sitting in a minivan, getting dropped off at the movie theater by my parents to catch the latest teen […]


Redhead rule of life: Never fail to celebrate the success of a fellow redhead. Celebrating: Ed Sheeran. This fellow redhead gained my affections when he performed at the Grammys with none other than Sir Elton John himself (talk about a stage full of my talented brethren).  Ed Sheeran’s name came to mind the other day […]


Oh, you wonderful Civil Wars.  You’ve up and done it again.  You’ve made an album that I look forward to listening to, even if I had it on repeat the day before.  I can’t say that I’m surprised.  The duo’s songwriting ability and lyrics in their debut album, Barton Hollow, hardly earned me the name […]


In true social media nerd enthusiast fashion, I’ve decided to participate in Throwback Thursday (or #tbt for all you savvy people out there) in the blogosphere.  I present to you Kelly Clarkson’s Behind These Hazel Eyes. This song has been on my mind all week.  Why, you ask?  It’s simple.  The weather forecast.  It is presently mid-March […]


Based off of the sheer amount of love I’ve shown for One Republic and Sara Bareilles over the past few years (it’s a little excessive, I know), it should come as no surprise to you that one of my all-time favorite songs is a collaboration between the two.  What should come as a surprise is […]


I’m very proud of my iPod’s ability to switch from Carrie Underwood to Linkin Park to Josh Groban to The Beach Boys to a choir piece to an embarrassingly high amount of Christmas music…all within a 6 song shuffle.  Granted, it doesn’t help me in terms of being able to plug in and serve as […]


Unless you live under a rock bolted down by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger, chances are you’ve heard about Justin Timberlake’s return to the music world.  Yes, ladies and gents, it’s true.  Last week, he took to Twitter to tease that he may be coming back.  He then released a video announcing that he was […]


For as long as I can remember, I’ve always thought music should evoke some sort of emotion – a smile, excitement even hysterical laughter.  One of the best feelings in the world is hearing one of your favorite songs come on the radio, your iTunes or cued up at a bar.  The initial recognition of […]


Hello, there.  Remember me?  Probably not.  I haven’t seen you for 3 months some time now. (Time? What is time, really?)  And for that, I apologize.  It has been impeccably poor timing in terms of being a missing person, since I’ve done more musical things in the past 3 months than I had in the year […]
