This gentleman covered the entire Beatles catalog a couple of years ago. You can find him here. I am going to be away next week. Some posts may appear, but I will be even more slow than normal responding to comments. (And that’s slow!)
The American Dollar has great tracks for writing and for just listening. Spacious, meditative, and colorful, music. Another discovery made via Spotify, which continues to impress with its recommendations.
Most movies tend to include pretty terrible music. There have been some great soundtracks from composers like Henry Jackman, Hans Zimmer, and Howard Shore, but when it comes to pop and rock well, bleah. The Guardians of the Galaxy films have been a rare bright spot, and now we have Baby Driver, a movie named…

I’ve…
Subject says it all. The chicken’s playing has not been altered at all: only accompaniment was added.
Yes, you read that right. Third Man Records has released a compilation of acoustic music from Jack, and this track is on it. Enjoy!
I’ve decided Fridays will be for music videos. Since it’s my blog, that’s how it will be. This is one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands. The sound quality is a little low, but it’s worth it to hear to a live version. Cracker is a country band that was lumped…
