Artist of the Week #1: Soft Hearted Scientists

When I'm looking for a new CD, a lot of times, I go with bands that have cool cover-art or unusual names.  Does this qualify as judging a book by it's cover?  Certainly.  But, it also means that I find a lot of interesting music.  In fact, that's how I found our first Artist of the Week.
 

Rock n'Roll History: A Journey in Sounds

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you're having a nice start to your week!  As for me, I'm doing very well, and I have a treat to share with all of you.  Coming up on December 3rd, we have Dr. Joel Keller of Baldwin-Wallace University coming in to talk to us all about the History of Rock and Roll (from 1949-1964).  Learn all about Rock and Roll's Historical and Cultural Significance, the many types of Rock and Roll, enjoy the greatest hits and top tens from each year, and more!

What's on your iPod?

So, what are you listening to? What music is playing in your car, on your iPod, computer, or smart phone? A tried and true favorite? Or something completely new?  I'm between albums right now, and am looking for something new and different.  I've recently been jamming to Alice Cooper's Welcome 2 My Nightmare while I do my homework and The Newsboys' Restart during my commute, but I'm ready for a change.

Introductions

Hello, everyone!
 
I just want to start by saying how excited I am to be starting this blog and sharing my love of music with all of you!  I think we're going to have a lot of fun things to talk about.
 
Just to clear up some confusion; this is the same Music Musings on Monday blog that some of you are familiar with.  The difference is that I'm not the same writer.  When the original Music Muse left the library, I was asked to take over.  And I'm hopeful that you'll enjoy my posts as much as you enjoyed hers.

Grammy Guesses

New Soundtracks, Beatles, and NOW!

I was just looking over my latest order and thought you might want to put a few on hold! Here's a bunch of soundtracks I ordered (you can click on the links to put it on hold) along with a few others that should be great:

Favorite New Songs

Looking for a couple new CDs? These CDs have some great new songs on them!

Top Holiday Tunes

Looking at Billboard tonight, I came across the Top Holiday 100 and noticed that the first fourteen songs were older songs!

Free Music, Gotta Love That

Okay, who loves the song, Say Something, by A Great Big World feat. Christina Aguilera?

Mondegreens

I was just thinking of my son singing a song in the car, and he heard “on my lawn” when the actual lyrics were, “all night long”. Of course, now I can’t remember the song! Anyhoo, that made me think of mondegreens.
