I have a problem, and I’m ready to admit it.  When I don’t completely “get” a musicians fame, I make it clear. (Sorry to all members of the Dave Matthews cult…no matter how hard you try, no matter how much you explain the experience, no matter how many sax solos you try to talk about, […]

Well well well, now that it’s July I see the weather has finally shaped up and started acting like it. (I know, welcome to Chicago.)  While summer comes packed with multiple things, particularly for a winter-hater such as myself, one of the best things about summer is country music.  Sure, you can listen to it […]

The classic and oldschool R&B vibe Cee Lo Green’s voice is drenched in throughout I Want You (Hold on to Love) can be described in one word: sexy.  From the simple runs, scoops and genuine lyrics, Cee Lo finds a way to channel R&B greats and reproduce it in a current way.  This was also […]

It’s official.  So You Think You Can Dance season has officially started again, and my search for new music will take off running.  I’m a huge proponent of multitasking, and I love what this show does for me – I am able to engage with dance from my couch all while being exposed to a […]

It’s a great day. 90 degrees in Chicago and finally warm enough to push my sweaters aside and tap into my “summer clothes.”  With summer clothes comes the summer mind set and overall excitement about what the season brings.  Pool days, bike rides, summer in the city, beaches, drinks, anything and everything outside, country music […]

While I’m not a die hard Ray LaMontagne fan, I’ve yet to hear a song of his that I don’t like.  Dancing to Trouble last night during my jazz class only proved that theory even more, and  might have upped my “fan-dom” a bit.  As I’ve mentioned before, a solid, emotional vocal weakens my knees.  […]

The only good thing to come out of Haley Reinhart’s painful rendition of the late Michael Jackson’s Earth Song on American Idol was that it inspired me to listen to Michael Jackson at work.  This isn’t entirely outrageous behavior for me as my sister and I are borderline obsessed with the King of Pop, but it […]

New song obsession alert.  Christina Perri, I don’t know what you went through, or if you’ve even experienced anything that warrants this type of raw, emotional response…but if you have, thank you for sharing it with everyone in the form of a song.  If not, you deserve not only an award for the musicality of […]

Another new release discovered via Twitter.  Look at me, broadening my musical horizons with the use of social media. #crazy Has Do it in the AM officially become my new favorite song and/or anthem?  Am I furiously searching the internet for posters of Frankmusik and Far East Movement to plaster all  over my walls? No, but […]

Okay, it had to happen.  The video for Judas premiered today so I had to post it.  What kind of little monster would I be if I overlooked it?!  Worry not; my claws are up.  Despite my Gaga fan-dom, the video for Judas stumps me a bit. Opening up with a motorcycle gang reminiscent of […]
