Lady Gaga: The Monster Ball Tour Blu-Ray

A reviewer at had this to say about this video:
I too saw her show live twice and watched this on HBO. I wasn't expecting the magic of the live show to come across on TV but it actually did! Which once again proves what a stellar performing artist she is. The odd fashion choices and other dichotomous behavior aside, this woman is incredibly talented and will have a long career in any kind of music she chooses whether it be pop or jazz. I applaud her politics and hope more will listen to her message of love, compassion and understanding for all.

Taylor Swift Sparks Fly Video

I still can not figure out, how a person like me who is no where near the demographics that Taylor Swift's music is aimed at, loves her music so much.

Yes I used the word love, LOL.

The only thing I can think of is that it is just good stuff!

Adele - Rolling In The Deep Video

I really like Adele's music and "Rolling In The Deep" is such a great song.

Editorial Reviews

21 is the eagerly awaited sophomore album from British singer-songwriter Adele. It’s the follow up to Adele’s critically acclaimed, Grammy award winning debut album 19 (both named after her age at the time the songs were written). Recorded in Malibu and London, 21 offered Adele the opportunity to work with such luminary producers and songwriters as Rick Rubin, Paul Epworth, Ryan Tedder, Dan Wilson and Fraser T. Smith, as well as continuing to work with Francis “Eg” White and Jim Abbiss.

This new collection of songs showcases the growth of this incredible artist, who at the very young age of twenty two, exhibits the poise of a seasoned veteran. Adele’s music takes some new direction while staying true to her signature style. “I discovered lots of artists I'd never heard of, particularly Wanda Jackson, Allison Krauss, Yvonne Fair, Andrew Bird, Neko Case, Lady Antebellum and Steel Drivers who I fell in love with. Then I delved in to more from artists I've loved forever - Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Elbow, Mos Def, Alanis Morissette, Tom Waits and Sinead O'Connor. There's something in every single one of these artists that have really really inspired 21.”

Blind Melon From the Archives

Here is a post I did a few years ago from the archives. I still like Blind Melon's music. I had been working really hard at my job and so did not have as much time to devote to my music blogs, but I was recently laid off from my job and now will blog more often.

Blind Melon is one of those bands that had so much promise, I love the video below for it's uplifting message of hope. That is why the tragic loss of the bands lead singer to a drug overdose was such a shock.

I recently read of them getting back together, I hope they pull it off.
