Ok my gaming friend just texted me, “Can we play Pandemic next time we game? Oh wait, we’re playing it now.”
Yes the world has suddenly become a crazy place and for some of us the only calming effect is hunting down music whether that be old music or new music. Music gets us part the crazy and the past the stress we are currently in the middle of. This is for some of us the biggest saving grace.
YouTube is getting a surge of life again as we are looking for things to take our mind of daily events but it’s also a way to connect with other people who are stuck in place.
We start this round of music designed to make you feel…….
On to music with a different feel
Lets change our feelings once more
So what makes you laugh, makes you cry and makes you love and makes you dance is something that will lift your heart in these uncertain and crazy times. Remember that music will set you free and make you whole.
See top video for the shoutout.

We lost a lot of great people last year. It’s been tough processing those who died before their time.
Sorry for not putting more out last year. Listen to a number of new albums and will talk about them later on, but right now I want to talk about Green Day.
I have watched them change and grow over the years and have been impressed with what they have said of late and what they yell out loud.
Here is a look back at Green Day and good luck to them in the future.
Looking forward to many more years of their music.
Two greats have passed recently and I thought I would post these memorable moments.
Here are three samples from the album.
Here is some examples from this album.

A number of things are out of wack in the music industry. One of those things has to do with songwriters. Aloe Blacc’s article in WIRED, check it out. As part of the discussion I understand that Taylor Swift removed herself from Spotify. I must say that is a bold move and I hope others follow here lead on this. If you don’t know about Spotify here is an article on WIRED! and one from the New Yorker.
It’s been a busy few months and I will be reviewing a number of albums soon but just to get the year rolling.
Here is the newest ear wig by Walk The Moon.

If you haven’t seen this amazing show on HBO your missing a piece of music history. The show brings the influences of what make our music today to the for front and each week they also create a song around the interviews and influences discussed that week. It represents where our musical roots have come and how over time they have connected together.
Check the website, Foo Fighters Sonic Highways.
Also I listened to the new album with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. It’s amazing. But here is a little taste of what the album is like.
I was listening to some of my older music the other day and it sparked a look at one song that has had a lot of success over time. == Singing in the Rain ===
