Winter Woes

Sick

The weather outside is turning cold again, and people are starting to get sick.  On days when the cold or illness has got you down, why not stay home?  And if your'e staying home, sleeping on the couch, why not put on a good movie or some good music to get you through the day?

Remembering David Bowie (1947-2016)

David Bowie is a legend.  And like all legends, even though he is gone, that doesn't mean that he'll be forgotten.  Now, before we get started, I'd like to preface this by saying that I was never a Bowie fan.  That doesn't mean I hated him--I just never had the chance to check him out.  And now, I feel really sad that I've waited until now to really look into the work of a man who is truly regarded as an amazing artist.

Celebrating 50 Years of Alan Leatherwood!

Cleveland's own Alan Leatherwood celebrates OVER 50 years in music with the release of new CD collections.

Alan Leatherwood (Cassaro) has been a fixture in the music industry for over 50 years. Mahalo Records released Alan's first record nationally in 1963. A couple of years later Alan was on the Old Town label in New York City. Alan became the featured weekly house act at "Faragher's Back Room" and later performed on the Fredana College Coffee House Circuit where he performed throughout the U.S. and Canada for several years.

Winter Music

 

It's cold out!  And for those of you who haven't been outside yet today, it's snowing, too!  I don't know about you, but I was getting pretty spoiled with this warm December weather, and I'm just not ready to give it up yet.  Yes, I should be happy to have had it while it lasted, but I'm still going into winter kicking and screaming.

October Tunes

October is here, and Halloween is just over a week away.  As the day quickly approaches for ghosts, ghouls, and all manner of spooky, creepy, freaky things, why not check out some "scary good" music to set the mood?

The Music Timeline

I'm always looking for cool new websites.  This post is one of my newer finds.  Ever wonder what was popular in music in a specific decade or genre?  Well, The Music Timeline takes information from people's posts on Google Music and uploads it into a timeline that shows you what was popular and includes links so that you can add your favorites to your Google Play Music account!

The Real Music Muse

I may refer to myself as the Music Muse, but if we want to get technical, I'm only a shadow of the real thing.  According to the Ancient Greeks, there were nine Muses, demi-goddesses bestowed with the power to grant favor to poets, musicians, and other artists.  In fact, it was believed that all artistic talent and inspiration came from one of them.  Their influence covered everything from Poetry to Music to Astronomy, Comedy, Tragedy, and History.  If you were an artist, the secret to success would be to stay in the favor of the Muse who governs your area of artistic talents.  With her influence, you would be very blessed in your chosen field.
