One of my favorite bands, The Corrs, are back together. Their first live performance in 10 years took place on Sunday in Hyde Park London UK, in front of thousands, during an all day festival hosted by BBC Radio 2.
They played the biggest hits of course and one of my favorites if not a big hit in “Radio”. Word on the street is their new album will be coming out in November.

Here are some images screencapped from the video:
Today is International ABBA Day marking the 40th anniversary of the single, ‘Waterloo’, that brought international fame for the pop group ABBA. It is also the 15th anniversary of the opening of the musical ‘Mamma Mia!’ that used ABBA songs. Celebrate by enjoying a video for the song Waterloo.
The other day I caught Lake Street Dive (LSD) on the Colbert Report show and checked out a video of the song they did. Loved it. They have a pop-jazz mix going on that sounds fresh. Their new album, coming out soon, ‘Bad Self Portraits’ has some great original tunes like the title song, ‘Rabid Animal’, and the tune that brought me into the fold – ‘You Go Down Smooth.’

The other day I checked out the video for Miley Cyrus’ song ‘Wrecking Ball’. I wanted to hate the song soooo bad. But the song is actually a pretty nice ballad. The video is over the top but the music is decent.
July 27th marked the 30th anniversary of the first album by Madonna. The self-titled debut included hits ‘Holiday’, ‘Lucky Star’, and ‘Borderline’. I love those tunes and the album, but my favorite tune is ‘Burning Up’. I love the music and the video wasn’t bad either. I would like any song that had Madonna dancing on the street.
Even more than 40 years since playing their final notes as a band, The Beatles don’t sound dated. I could listen to their music 24 hours a day. I love the usual hits like “I am the Walrus” and “Hey Jude” but I wanted to share a playlist of some of the tunes I like the most.
I’m not religious myself but I can enjoy some good music of a religious nature. Religious music I like include contemporary worship music or pop songs with a religious theme. Although on occasion I can listen to something old like a Gregorian chant or something like that. Here are some of my favorite religious music from over the years.
Alanis Morissette’s album “Jagged Little Pill” ushered in the angry female pop singer in 1995. The album sold 15 million copies in the US and is considered the number one album of the 1990’s. It won a slew of awards worldwide and is also on many “Greatest Albums of all time” lists. “Head Over Feet” was the fifth single released and is my favorite from the album.
