Music, What makes you happy?

Posts tagged “Shinedown

Busy summer, already fall. The music continues on.

Some many new albums and so many good songs it hard to know where to start.

It’s no secret that I love Shinedown and I’m very happy with the latest album and the videos are good as well. I also like things that aren’t heavy, hard and metal.

I do love things like Andre Bocelli and things like that so I found this one of those videos that I enjoyed very much with Ed Sheeran

Here are some other great videos.

GreatunknownThe Great Unknown, the latest from Rob Thomas. This album is very fast paced and gets you going. Loved the content and the lyrics and enjoyed where the songs took me mentally. Check it out.

Here are three samples from the album.

threattosurvivalShinedown never fails to please. This new album is just another in a long line of great albums for them. All full of visuals that make you think and feel every word of the lyrics.

Music, Venues and Video’s.

Country music is part of the roots of modern music, and though you may not here it, you will find it there.
The other night I saw Diamond Rio at a very small venue in Colorado. To me small is sometimes better.
Why? Your closer to the band, you can hear the music better and it makes you feel like you are listening at home sometimes. Over the years I have seen many rock bands and country bands and others in small venues and it helps me get a better sense of what they are like personally, professionally and lets me know what they will be like at a large venue.
One of the member of Diamond Rio belonged to a band I enjoyed way back when Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
Oddly enough this particular guitar player from Diamond Rio was also my inspiration for learning how to play the guitar all those years ago.
Here are some old and new songs that may inspire some of you.

Who says country guys can’t rap Neal McCoy.

Last but not least a different kind of inspiration.

Albums that are worth listening too!
Most recently I have a hard time not replaying these albums which by there own right could be considered large Earwigs.
This album has a number of songs that you will keep singing over and over.
“Bottoms’ Up” Is my personal favorite.

Full of great songs, that will never get old.
Top on my list from this album, “Unity”.

Some older albums that still will keep you singing.
Will Smith

Aqua Found this one interesting because I thought she always sang with a really high voice but I was surprised.

McFly Lots of great songs to sing to including the one with Taio Cruz.

Kansas Not only very cool musically but very tough as well and timeless.
Have a good week all.

Albums worth taking a listen too, I was surprised.
If you like old style Big Band toons you might want to take a listen to this wonderful album. I only think about Seth as the man who does Family Guy and those things. He has a wonderful singing voice.
This new album by Lionel Richie has country flare. Each song has a different country artist singing with Lionel. People Like Blake Shelton, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffet and others give a new spin to the old tunes.
Recently Davy Jones passed away and I started thinking back on the fun music from the Monkeees. The Deluxe version of this album has features different versions of the songs not previously released and some other surprises. It’s fun to listen to old classics.
The new album from Shinedown is now getting worn out at my place. Hard to stop playing this one over and over, but then again I’ve found that to be the case with most of their music. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should.
