span.source {font-size:.8em;} You hear them at karaoke bars, on mixed tapes, and on the easy listening stations. They're burned into your mind, which is sometimes annoying and sometimes perfect. Classic love songs can be grating when you're not in the mood, but when you're feeling sentimental, they're just what you need. So if you're on a date, it's your anniversary, or you're trying to impress your valentine, maybe give one of these tried and true songs a try. You won't get any points for ori... [Read more]
The Boss never stopped putting out good, new music at fairly regular intervals, and most of his studio releases have made it to #1 on the pop charts, with the exception of the underrated 1995 THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD which only made it to #11 ("only" being a term that applies because we're talking about Springsteen). 2012's WRECKING BALL was good. HIGH HOPES is even better. [Read more]

The next thing I knew, "Go Country 105" was on my first pre-set button, and I knew all the words to pretty much every song. [Read more]

Musical theatre has its very own awards show, and The Tonys are very prestigious honors. But they aren't the only place where the best of Broadway is recognized. Thanks to the release of cast albums as well as television and film versions of musicals, the Grammys take notice as well. This year, the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album went to Kinky Boots (music written by Cyndi Lauper), making it the newest addition to the hall of fame that was inaugurated in 1959 with The Music Man. Here... [Read more]

Nobody on their deathbed has ever said "I wish I had spent more time at the office". -- Rabbi Harold Kushner I work at a company which acts as an online ticket marketplace for virtually every entertainment event in my (or anyone else's) area.  And yet, when I question my friends, I don't attend significantly more concerts, sports, or theater than they do. This must change. I love music. I know no one says "I hate music," but I really, truly do love seeing live music performed.  And a l... [Read more]

The 10 Best Songs of 2013

December 20, 2013
10. M.I.A. – Bad Girls Even though this song came out in a different version in 2010, and again last year, it was featured one more time on M.I.A.’s 2013 album Matangi and is still one of the best songs of the year with maybe one of the best videos ever. That’s high praise for someone currently embroiled in a legal dispute for flipping off the entire world during the Super Bowl, but that’s what bad girls do (and they do it well).

Guest post by Adrienne Erin Spotify rocks and Pandora has had plenty of time in the spotlight. We all know that. And if you've ever been to a party, you know the power of collaborative playlists and that fantastic 90s Pandora station. But if you’re a real new-music-phile then you need to broaden your search a little bit. But fear not, you won’t have to look far. And for that, we have the Internet to thank. In this post I will highlight some of my favorite Internet radio options that aren't... [Read more]
I'm not going to try to do a "worst ten" list because, in a field that includes albums by William Hung (I kid you not -- his album is called Hung for the Holidays), Roseanne Barr (and you didn't think "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" could get any worse) and Twisted Sister (you seriously do not want to hear their version of "Oh Come All Ye Faithful") it would be impossible to stop at ten.
