  1. Most quarantine-inspired songs seem a little trite to me, but this one is straight church.
  2. I think he deserves at least as much credit as Buddy Holly for birthing rock and roll. Everything lists toward the middle, so by going so hard in a wild direction, he set an important standard.
  3. This somehow nails it.
  4. I love that you guys are still going at it in 2020.
  5. This video, to the best of my knowledge, is the last time we saw Mariah Carey dancing. Notice the very quick cuts when she does.
  6. We did a story on how artists are reworking songs in the age of coronavirus: https://www.songfacts.com/blog/writing/hands-washing-hands-songs-reworked-for-the-age-of-coronavirus
  7. No much room for progression in this genre. The old stuff sounds just as good as the new.
  8. "Groove Is In The Heart." It's as good as I remember it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etviGf1uWlg
  9. This might be a tough one to track down. Sorry I don't have any better ideas.
  10. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2020 inductees will be: Depeche Mode The Doobie Brothers Whitney Houston Nine Inch Nails The Notorious B.I.G. T. Rex Notably snubbed are Pat Benatar and Dave Matthews Band - DMB's fans are being rather vocal about it. I haven't put much credence in the Rock Hall for quite a while because the thought of Rolling Stone writers subjectively choosing inductees bothers me. They also need to either take a few years off or reduce the number of acts they accept, because it's getting thin. This class can probably do without Notorious B.I.G. or T. Rex, but both acts have mythical tales that give them far more gravitas than their music ever did. The Rock Hall made a big mistake when they named their institution because they've had to induct many acts that are in no way "rock." We learned this lesson when we named our Music History Calendar - making it the "Rock History Calendar" would have been too restrictive.
  11. Poke around https://musicbrainz.org/ They have a lot of possibilities. Here's a search for "The Little People's Counting Rhymes," which might have what you're looking for: https://musicbrainz.org/search?query=Little+People's+Counting+Rhymes&type=release&method=indexed
  12. Love that this song is still hanging around. Very nice video.
  13. I dig the funky stuff from the late '60s - "Cloud Nine," "Ball of Confusion" era.
  14. We interviewed him not too long ago! Very interesting guy: https://www.songfacts.com/blog/interviews/jesse-colin-young-of-the-youngbloods
  15. This is actually pretty cool. Back then, anything "laser" sounded state-of-the-art.
  16. Yeah, he made a lot of great music. Huge loss.

    CCR @ Woodstock

    This is a weird one - it's like someone had this footage handy and just released it on YouTube. There doesn't seem to be any official release for this. Also, it shows that their performance was really good, blowing up the theory that they wouldn't let the movie or soundtrack use it because they thought they were terrible.
  18. Country is to Western as Track is to Field.
  19. Someone had to write a folk song about this. I still prefer Bowie's "Space Oddity" though.
  20. I like how it's accompanied by a suitably ersatz Dorothy.
  21. Cosmo Sheldrake may be the best name in music.
  22. "Orlando's" by Twiddle. Runs 9:35. Check it out:
  23. Was looking to see if there is video for the 1993 Triangle Ball, and found this instead.
