This is one of my favorite new songs. It’s from the movie The Bucket List, and is probably one of John Mayer’s best performances to date. It echoes the sentiment that you should always tell people what you feel before it’s too late because life is so short.
“Semi-Charmed Life” by Third Eye Blind is probably on the top five list of my all-time favorite songs. There’s nothing better, in my opinion, than mid-1990s alternative rock, specifically 1996 and 1997, had some of the best music ever. I liked this song so much back in ’96 that I bought it and it was my first cassette tape (that’s right, not CD but tape). It’s still just as awesome today, twelve years later, and brings back lots of great memories. Take a listen.
I know, I know, this is a sad song for those of you that have heard it. But I had to post it. It’s a great story about a little boy who can’t afford to buy his mom a pair of shoes for Christmas so that she looks pretty when she gets to heaven to meet Jesus. It’s by Christian band NewSong, and it’s a great reminder of the true spirit of the Christmas season.
Okay, so you got gypped last week with no song of the week since I haven’t been posting later, so in order to catch up, here it is, almost a week late (that’s right, that means you get another one tomorrow, too). It’s hard to find music videos of Christmas songs here in this festive time of the year, so you’re gonna end up getting a double whammy. Here’s Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s song “Wizards In Winter” along with a Christmas light display that was timed to the music by computer. I’m going to see them in concert in a couple weeks, too. I wish I had the time, money, and skill to do this. One day I hope to do something even half this cool at my own house.
Well, it’s a little after midnight, but it’s officially Monday. Time for the Song Of The Week! Bon Jovi has been around for decades, and still manages to produce some great songs. His latest single, “Lost Highway,” is one of my favorites right now.
Timbaland’s done it again. He’s helped so many artists out, and now he’s launched Colorado-based band OneRepublic into the limelight by remixing and re-releasing their song, “Apologize,” on his album entitled “Shock Value.” Check it out:
This is without a doubt my absolute favorite song right now. It’s the best I’ve heard in a long time. It’s the first single off Pat Monahan’s solo album. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the name, he’s the lead singer from Train. Forgive the joke, but he’s “derailed” for a bit and plans to “climb back aboard” with the band after this solo album. Anyway, let me get “back on track.” The song’s called “Her Eyes.” Check it out!
I’m going to start posting a music video each week reflecting my favorite song at the time. I’ve never heard a bad song when Carlos Santana pairs up with another popular musician. Chad Kroeger, the lead singer from Nickelback, has teamed up with him in the past to record the hit, “Why Don’t You And I” a few years ago.
