#Throwback Thursday: The Beatles – Abbey Road Medley

This date back in 1969 Abbey Road went #1. I’ve always considered it the Last Beatles Album. Let It Be is technically last, but it didn’t have that feel of a Beatles album. I’ve thought of it as Abbey Road’s The End as the perfect way to end the band, “the love you take is equal to the love you make”, and then Let It Be came out after they broke up and it felt like a message to fans like “hey it’s over, just let it be”…

Abbey Road is one of the greatest albums of all time, and the medley is a HUGE reason why. Side 2 might be my favorite side to a record all time. It just brings the listener through all these emotions and ends you with this peace. It feels like a finality when it’s over.

Come Together, Something, Oh! Darling all amazing songs, but The Medley feels like a work of art:

New Music Monday: Logic – “100 Miles & Running”

Song is FIRE! This shows Logic can spit the the best and fastest rappers. The beat is incredible. I don’t know why but it reminds me of a 70’s New York City Vibe…

Actually come to think of it a few songs from his new album YSIV has that vibe like Wu Tang Forever The Return

Rip it up Young Sinatra.

 

New Music Monday: Martin Garrix ft. Justin Mylo & Dewain Whitemore – “Burn Out”

Not a ton of choices like last week…but Martin Garrix put out a poppy fun song that’ll get you to dance, or help you chill…whatever – the fact Garrix can go either way with his songs is what makes him great. He could have a banger with his single High On Life and then chill out on the next. This is a good in-between.

I really like the piano in the verses, and how the vocalist Dewain Whitemore helps build up to the drop. It reminds me of a Waiting For Love by Avicii.

This song has the potentially to have some really good remixes.

PS Why can’t I go on this kinda adventure every time I do laundry? Can someone create a bar based off this music video? k thanks.

Dance Break: Sigala/Meghan Trainor/French Montana/Ella Eyre – “Just Got Paid”

Woo-Woot! It’s Friday – Payday!! This is the perfect feel-good anthem. Sigala is back with summer upbeat vibes. From the funky guitar strumming to the build up in the incredibly catchy, simple chorus to the drop everything is fun. Even French’s rap verse is on point and fits really well into the song.  This is one of those songs I really hope would become a big hit, but it probably won’t (even with the star power of Meghan and French).

C’mon it’s Friday sing this with “I just got paid!”

 

#Throwback Thursday: Aerosmith – “Mama Kin”

I maybe be a little too excited to see my all time favorite band in for their Vegas Residency: Deuces Are Wild! Seeing Aerosmith perform this on Fallon has me pumped! It’s such an underrated song. Fast paced fun and raw!

 

New Music Monday 9/10/18: Hozier – “Nina Cried Power”

Oh man there were TOO many options to choose from this weekend. Gavin James, has an upbeat fun song, Lukas Graham is back with some singer/songwriter acoustic vibes, Dua Lipa teamed up with Diplo & Mark Ronson, Alice Merton, Jonas Blue collaborated with MK, MNEK’s Body is fun, Sigala’s song is a Friday anthem…BUT I’m choosing:

Hozier (Featuring MAVIS FUCKING STAPLES!!!)- Nina Cried Power. It’s Hozier’s first single since 2014 (way too long if you ask me).

There’s so much uptempo soul in this song. We got a taste of that in Angels Of Small Death on his first album, and now we have Nina Cried Power, which fucking rocks! His voice is still super deep and amazing which is good to know he hasn’t changed his iconic sound (which sometimes happens after a new artist’s first album – I’m looking at you Fitz & The Tantrums).

Oh and did I mention Legend Mavis Staples is on it? in the chorus and outro? How amazing does she sound on this song? The song is fantastic without her, but then you get to her verse and it just blows you away. She takes the song to an entire new level.  Definitely listen to the entire song.
