These Great Apology Songs Have Nothing To Be Sorry About

For some reason missed an episode of one of my favorite music programs, Sound Opinions from National Public Radio. Fortunately, I was able to revisit the show via the Internet but, after listening to it, I can say that I am literally sorry for not hearing it live.

The local classic rock station kicks off the noon lunch hour each weekday by playing songs that are connected in some way, such as sharing a word in their titles or featuring a common theme. A recent show grouped a set of songs that all had just four letters in their titles, even though the disc jockey quickly discounted the smash hit by the Village People because its title was an acronym. Lola by the Kinks immediately came to mind, but the station played three others before it got to that one…

Understanding and communication play a very important role in a person’s well-being.

Eight Classic Rock Songs That Feature A Banjo

While attending a ball game recently, I had a minor disagreement with a fellow spectator. Our difference did not arise from a controversial managerial move or an umpire’s blown call, as one would expect at a baseball game. The classic hit “Lola” by the Kinks came across the loudspeaker between innings, and I made a comment to my daughter that I should learn to play the banjo part in that song.

Alice Cooper Songs Provide Plenty of Potential Names For Pet Snakes

A dear friend from my childhood recently informed that he just crossed off his bucket list an item that brought back a lot of memories from our teenage years. Nearly thirty years ago on the way home from an Alice Cooper concert in Cincinnati, he told me that he one day wanted to have a pet snake like the boa constrictor that had just shared the stage with our favorite rock star. My friend now three decades later had sent me a photo of the serpent he planned to purchase, and he…

Well-Known Songs That Were Inspired By News Articles

Songs these days rarely make the headlines, even when they hit the very top of the charts. For example, you might have to dig deep into the newspaper to find the title of even the current number one single, “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber.

Memorable Albums Turning Fifty In The Shadow Of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Much hype has surrounded the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the album by The Beatles that is still considered one of the best records in rock history. While the classic does warrant some of the attention it is getting, it has unjustifiably overshadowed too many other albums that are also turning fifty this year.
