Vegas baby Vegas!!!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 21, 2012 by itsallgrey

I just want to start out by saying..I called this whole Vegas gig years ago. However, I’m not searching in the 300+ posts to find it. I know I’m right and that’s all that matters. Taylor Hicks in Vegas. I’m not sure that there is a better fitting place for Mr Hicks than Vegas. After all, Vegas is the birthplace of performers, not just singers. And Hicks is definitely a performer if nothing else. After all, the purple jacket will fit right in!!

Okay, who’s roadtripping?

I’m not big on parodies in the music world…just not my thing. But this…this is fantastic. I am hanging on to the 30′s with just my fingernails. But I’m still in my 30′s dammit! I really think people of all ages can relate to this. So funny!!

We're Not Young

Make sure you watch until the very end! Priceless!

Even If It Breaks Your Heart…

Anybody who has read this blog before knows about my love for Will Hoge. I’ve seen him in concert a few times and I think is a great singer/songwriter. So a few months ago, when I was flipping stations on the radio, imagine my surprise to hear Even if it Breaks Your Heart on mainstream country radio. This is an original Will Hoge song, and I’m glad to see he’s finally getting some breaks, even if it’s not him singing it.

You tell me..which version do you prefer?

Spotify or what in the hell am I going to find myself liking today?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on April 13, 2012 by itsallgrey

I know Spotify isn’t new, and I don’t know how many of you know about it…but it is definitely worth downloading. It’s similar to Pandora or Last.fm, but you can search any song and listen to it. There are a couple of annoying ads every once in a while, but compared to the music that comes out of the speakers, it’s just a very minor annoyance. The interesting thing about it is that I find myself listening to all kinds of music. A quick history of songs I’ve listened to lately show a range from Kelly Clarkson to KISS to Lionel Richie.

But what I noticed yesterday is that I found myself listening to Taylor Hicks. I haven’t listened to him in a long time, and as much as I still dislike The Distance, I do love his other works. There is something about his voice that soothes me. I’m not sure what it is, but I’m sure my therapist can tell you. Just listening to his voice takes me to a place where I can relax, think and just be.

So my question is…who do you listen to when you need soothed? When the outside world just seems to be too much to handle and you just need some peace? Whose voice takes you to that place?

“Words make you think a thought. Music makes you feel a feeling. A song makes you feel a thought.”

Sex in a song

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on March 22, 2012 by itsallgrey

I am a big fan of Matt Nathanson. I think he is a genius..and this song with Sugarland is amazing. It kind of feels like I shouldn’t be watching…like they should be alone. The chemistry is great..I can only hope for more duets with these two.

Run

Well, I did find another song..it’s not exactly about sex.

End of the World

And although I said I wouldn’t be dragging Taylor Hicks kicking and screaming back into the blog…that song reminded me of this one:

Compared to What

I was in the crowd for that one. Spectacular. Cowbell anyone?

Clearing out the cobwebs…

I have come to the realization that I miss having a blog. I miss the interaction and the musical discussions that used to happen on here on a regular basis. Seeing as I don’t really follow Taylor Hicks like I used to, I would like to make this blog about music. A place to discover and share new music…and just talk about it. Any kind of music really…I’m not too picky. :)

For now, here’s this…because she is awesome.

I’m here!

Seeing that video just brought back a flood of memories!! Some bad, but mostly good!
