This Saturday is the final of Lithuania’s National selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Lithuania has a fairly patchy and unpredictable record at the contest, with their debut entry in 1994 not scoring a single point, and their best result being 6th place. This came from LT United at the 2006 contest. This was met with an onslaught of boos from the Athens crowd, I did however vote for it and have a huge soft spot for the song.
If you have paid attention to popular music as of late, you’d notice that Billie Eilish is taking over the pop music realm. Her music has been streamed hundreds of millions of times, she swept the Grammys, and she’s only 18.
Though the subheading might confuse you ‘Earl. And the unknown genre’ may sound like a band but I assure you that it isn’t a band; that should have been made clear by the heading of this article ‘The Future might be Earldridge’.
When news started trickling in that iconic Rush drummer Neil Peart had passed, I didn't believe it. Working at home from my office, a friend of mine had sent me a message to alert me of the news, but I had been through this before. In fact as early as the early 1980's, there were always rumors that Neil Peart had contracted any number of debilitating cancers or had died. But this was disturbing enough for me to check into. Then upon my own investigation on the internet, I started seeing announcements of his death from some other music websites that I hadn't heard of before. More suspiciously, Nick Mason's (drummer of Pink Floyd) picture had appeared where a picture of Neil was supposed to be so I had further doubts as to the validity of this announcement. I had also read that a week or so earlier Neil's first drum teacher, Don George, had passed away so I was sure that somehow, the wires had been crossed and Neil was fine enjoying his retirement, his family and his life. In fact, I even wrote back to my friend with the headline saying "False Alarm".
The Year was 2017 when XaviourX Xeno lit the torch for his progeny to come forth and stand on their own in their rightful place as divine beings who could express musically a message to those who would choose to listen.
Lizzo is one of the biggest stars of the past year and implored us to ask the philosophical question: why mean great till they gotta be great? She made a lot of noise with tracks like “Juice,” “Truth Hurts” “Good as Hell” and “Tempo.” Her rise to stardom was something that we hadn’t seen before as her most notable tracks were released years ago and only recently made their way to the tops of the charts.
Is there ageism in the Kpop community??? I define ageism as people who are treated negatively or unjustly because of their age.
So, you are celebrating the success of your project, you are throwing a birthday party for family and friends, or you are bidding a rocking farewell to a colleague.

You may arrange for all other aspects of a party, but setting up a DJ system that can make your attendants groove to its beats is something you should leave onto the professionals.

Disney does a great job giving their villains huge amounts of personality, and awesome songs to go with. Here are the (in my opinion) five most powerful ones.
During the 1960s, THE LLOYD THAXTON SHOW was the favorite TV spot for millions of teens and preteens throughout the United States. From the Monkees to the "Mashed Potato," Lloyd gave the kids an awesome mix of dance, special musical guest stars—and the great Thaxton humor. When the show left the air, he went on to produce Fight Back! with David Horowitz, over 200 segments of the Today Show, gain five Emmys, and cowrite the popular book, STUFF HAPPENS—And Then You Fix It! Just prior to his passing, he was producing a new DVD chronicling his famous teen show. I caught up with Lloyd in May of 2007 and he graciously consented to this interview:
