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!

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. šŸ™‚

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

She.blows.me.away.

Adele came out with her second album yesterday, titled 21. No sophomore slump here. She is absolutely amazing. She doesn’t need autotune and the passion that she sings with just makes the lyrics come alive. Wow.

Don’t You Remember

Someone Like You

Set Fire to the Rain

Since I have young children, I have to listen to the Justin Biebers and Lady Gagas of the music world, and listening to Adele sing makes them sound like they should be American Idol audition rejects. She, in my opinion, is in a class by herself. I have always believed that Martina McBride has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. But not anymore…Adele is unbelievably talented.

If you like her, check out 21 on iTunes! Amazing stuff!

If I had it all…

I’d fuck it up. Or something like that. šŸ˜‰

Some of my favorite DMB songs…enjoy.

Just a man and his guitar. I am a sucker for anything acoustic.

A view from the outside…

Just got home from the concert. Now you have to know that this auditorium is a pretty big place. When I walked in, I thought…oh, surely more people will be there. But no, there were probably about 100 people there. Other than the two kids sitting behind us, I’m pretty sure that we, in our mid thirties, were among the youngest there. That being said, it was a fun crowd. We took our seats in the front row and awaited the arrival of Mr. Hicks. My tickets said no cameras, and honestly I’ve been debating for a while on whether or not to take pictures. I left my camera at home, but since I had my trusty iPhone with me, I assigned my friend to picture and video taking duty. She’s used to it. She’s done it at more than a few Taylor concerts.

Taylor came out…wearing boots, might I add. šŸ™‚ Oh, and skinny jeans. As we were leaving the concert, one of the younger girls there said, “Skinny jeans? Really? He wore skinny jeans.” I don’t think she was impressed by his attire! HAHA! He seemed to be in a really good mood. He was very talkative between songs and nobody can direct a band like he can. It’s amazing. I watched the signals he gave the band to speed up, slow down and sometimes take songs in a whole new direction. He cracked jokes, even if he was the only one laughing at them. He’s such a dork, but that’s one of the things I love about him.

It was kind of interesting to be there, though. I looked around, watched part of the crowd (kind of hard to do from the front row) and I watched the other band members play. My face wasn’t stuck behind a camera (okay, only because I had delegated that duty, whatever). What I’m trying to say is that I watched it as a fan, not as a member of the Soul Patrol. I’m not putting anybody down, because I’ve been there. I’ve followed that man all over the southeast and the midwest. But to be outside of the drama, to not worry about getting everything on video…it was nice. I enjoyed the music..and he is quite the entertainer. There’s no denying that. It was great to see Brian Less and Sam Gunderson there playing. Bill Will was running the merch table. It wasn’t my most favorite concert that I’ve been to of his, but it was really good.

But what was the encore you ask? Not Bulletproof. I mean really…I ask for one simple favor. Nope. No can do. No, we got Taking it to the Streets. Really Taylor? Really? Oh well…it was still worth the money.

Lots of tagging tonight, too.

Here are some videos..not the best quality since they were recorded on my phone, but here they are, nonetheless.

Maybe You Should

Love the One You’re With

Stay With Me

All in all, Taylor did make me forget my troubles for 90 minutes and in the end, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Um…well…yes.

I think he painted these pants on…not that I’m complaining. šŸ˜‰

I love it when he rocks out…

This is awesome…

Oh, and somehow, someway…I have to hear him sing this song when I go to the concert which is probably not in my best interest to be going to..

Seriously.

Taylor, are you listening?

Career redux part four…

Taylor Hicks is all over the tv again…not that that’s a bad thing. But it’s his choice of songs that are interesting.

Here..a few days ago…

Love the one you’re with…

Seven Mile Breakdown…

And today..he was on Fox and Friends singing Taking it to the Streets

Gone is the country, the modern whomp and now it seems we’re moving more towards rock. I think it’s a good move. Obviously, since I can’t get this out of my head…

Even Soul Thing is funkier…and oh the tagging.

Love it!!

He keeps this up and this tour might actually live up to it’s name. BADASS!! šŸ™‚
