My Christmas Playlist
“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” ― Bob Hope
A Short Stop At The Skipton Sound Bar
Introduction A few years back ( probably more than a few) we discovered the Skipton Sound Bar. Back then it was essentially a second-hand music shop with a small bar and they were always playing Jeff Wayne's "War Of The Worlds", not a favourite of mine. At the time my vinyl collection was smaller than it is now and I managed to lay my hands on an original of Jethro Tull's "Thick As A Brick" complete with the full broadsheet newspaper cover. According to the band, putting together the newspaper took more time and effort than the actual album, which is still very good.

Spotify Wrapped 2023
Y'all it's that time of year, anticipated by many a Spotify user. Wrapped first started in 2016, although a less developed version "Year in Music" had been premiered the year before. Wrapped gives users a look at the music they listen to from January 1st to October 31st, which, at least for me, is usually a moment to be surprised (or not).
That was embarrassing
The party was in full swing, the music pulsating through the air, and laughter echoing off the walls. It was one of those lively gatherings where people from all walks of life converged for a night of celebration. Little did I know, this night would etch a memory in my mind under the category of "That was embarrassing."
Analog And Digital
Introduction I've been seeing the Marc Jacobs advert for "Daisy" or something, and the soundtrack uses "Cheree" from the debut album by the band Suicide's debut album from 1977.
A Playlist Of My Birthday Number Ones
Introduction I was born in 1957 and the number one single at the time was the awful "Diana" by Paul Anka. Either side of that was "All Shook Up" by Elvis Presley and "That'll Be The Day" by Buddy Holly and the Crickets, both brilliant records but we have to start with that awful dirge.
The Who vs. Led Zeppelin
Okay, boys and girls, you have indicated through your clicking of the little Valentine heart and comments that you like it when I post these types of articles comparing one thing with another (Drug Dealers vs. Banks; Montréal vs. Toronto, etc.), so here is another one for you and yours: two powerhouse groups - one that I have loved from the moment I heard them, and the other a group it took me years to appreciate...and still have my doubts about while I accept their fame.
Halloween is a time for soaping cars, vandalizing your neighbor's house with toilet paper rolls, playing with Ouija Boards, trespassing into graveyards at night, and who knows? maybe committing mass human sacrifice at some hitherto undisclosed location run by a drug cartel in Buenos Aires and presided over by a huge, skulking, black-clad woman named Juanita. It's all fun and games until someone loses a soul.
