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.
Ran across some of these groups and people worth listening to.
One was a recommendation from a friend.
Sleep For Sleepers
Malice In Wonderland
Restless Blues Band

People I would like you to notice that should be added to you lists are Tyler Ward.

According to one of his videos he is a neighbor of Alex G.
Her EP Hello is worth picking up as well as her collaborations.
A group I have previously talked with Broken Tongues.
And a Congrats goes out to Mad Dog & Headman. Tonight They will be having a CD release party at the Skylite Station in Denver.

New Kids On The Block will be releasing their new album “10” (Out in April). I must admit I wasn’t really a NKOTB fan before, I was more of a Backstreet Boys person, but I have been slowly warming to the new NKOTB.
With that I though I would look at a few of the Boy bands that have appealed in the past and now.
Backstreet Boys are also still going strong, they did an album with NKOTB and came out with their own “This is us.” They will be having their 20th Anniversary this year and a new album will be coming out soon.
McFly has released “Memory Lane, The Best of McFly” and are out traveling doing great shows. We hope to see the new album soon, but enjoy this video for starters.
And the new members of the boy band breed, who seem to be making an impression here is the US is One Direction.
