Dirty Loops cover Alphaville’s “Forever Young”

As much as I like Jay Z, I really can’t stand what he did to Alphaville’s chart topping single from 1984 “Forever Young”. Alphaville’s recording was a song of my youth. For me, it was a song played as the one of the last songs at summer boarding school dances (the other being Don McLean’s “AmericanContinue reading “Dirty Loops cover Alphaville’s “Forever Young””

New Music | Ms Lauryn Hill | “Black Rage” [Stream]

  Given the recent civil unrest in Ferguson, MO, leave it to Lauryn Hill to drop a track she recorded over a year ago as a demo.   This is music at it’s best.

I never had to wait for ice. Tipping usually works that way. I head back out toContinue reading “Toddchella | Part III | We Were Indians”

Snoop Lion | “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” Featuring Miley Cyrus | Mourning Loss

It’s been quite a surreal day for me.  Yesterday, I took my dog, Samson, to the vet as I noticed he was bleeding from his mouth. The vets noticed a growth on his tongue and diagnosed an Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Cancer. My heart broke. The vets told me that it looked bad and that IContinue reading “Snoop Lion | “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” Featuring Miley Cyrus | Mourning Loss”
