Partiboi69 Keeps It Unprotected During COVID-19
In these troubling times, society depends upon creative outlets to help anchor and secure the social fabric which binds communities together. Music is one of the most powerful and dynamic forces for helping to usher our spirits in the good times and the bad.
There is something special about rock music. It ignites something within many of us that often leads to breaking into air guitar solos, singing off-tune alone in the car, and even even some thrashing of the head.

Indie Music Madness: A Seven-Song Sweaty Heatwave Playlist
Well, here we are Philadelphia. Stuck in the middle of a sweaty heatwave. Just like my ass to this chair. Or, my glutes would be glued, that is, if I wasn't blasting my house's A.C. at max power. And didn't have two small desk fans on both sides of my computer aimed at my face. As well as an industrial-sized mega fan behind me blowing my back. And I wasn't wearing two frozen pea bags bandanaed around my face as if I had the mumps. I don't have the mumps.
The Big Summer Playlist
IMO, summer isn't summer until you've curated a super fun and extensive playlist that specifically reminds you of freshly cut grass, barbeques and ice cream galore, and getting sand in places you don't particularly want sand to be.

20 Most Popular Female Musicians of The 1970s
I am a longtime music aficionado dating back to 1972 when I bought my first records. I bought two albums A Song For You by Carpenters and Greatest Hits by Blood, Sweat and Tears (of course both on 8-track tape). These two records took me away into thoughts and imaginations I never experienced before. I was instantly sold, a fan of music right from the get go. All I could think about was the next record I would buy. I started making lists of songs and albums I wanted. By 1978 it became an obsession. I had to buy everything I wanted. My lists went from 3 or 4 albums up to 40 or 50 titles at all times. In 1992 my friend Mitzi and I spent the entire day removing all my albums from my walk-in closet and counted each one and alphabetized everything and rearranged them back into the closet. When all was said and done the final count was approximately 11,500 albums (and that did not include the 7,500 seven inch singles I had). This wasn't even the top number. I continued collecting records until 1995. I would guesstimate, at one point, I owned around 16,000 albums. That was crazy. When I moved from Orange to Fullerton in 1996 it was a lot of work packing and moving those records.
