Eliza and the Bear: Review

As I briefly mentioned in this post about my top songs of 2014, I came across Aliza and the Bear earlier this year. I was in the mood to try some new music and so off I went to Spotify’s recommended music section in hunt of some inspiration. It really…

2014’s biggest singles

Where do you even begin? 2014 has been a year and a half with top songs. This post is an accumulation of songs that were released in 2014, and songs that I first heard in 2014. So they may be older, but this is my blog and you’ll abide by…

Xfactor Greatest Hits Medley

The so-called “Greatest Hits Medley” was a spectacular disaster. At best. The mismatch of contests, the poor song choice (and not to mention the awful vocals) left a lot to be imagined. I’m not quite sure where Simon and the team got the idea from, or why it even happened,…

Barclay Jumper Envy

Stereo Kicks “Don’t let the sun go down on me” performance did two things; it made me believe they could advance to the next week of the competition – one step closer to the final, and one step closer to the potential of winning. But it did another thing; it…
