I’m on a High, on a High!

music high I’m on a High, on a High!Have you ever wondered why most people are inclined to listen to music? Just think about it…who isn’t into music? Whatever type of person you are, regardless of your origin, music will reach you. There’s just something in music that captures our imaginations and makes us feel good.

Based on recent research at McGill University in Canada, music is just like anything that has an impact to the brain, particularly on its pleasure-reward system. Studies suggest that dopamine, a neurotransmitter, is released every time people like the music they are listening to. This explains why it feels pleasurable to hear one of your favorite songs come on. page go I’m on a High, on a High! Continue reading I’m on a High, on a High! »

2010101413200361423 big The Streaming Jukebox: How Internet Radio Keeps the Tradition AliveThere is nothing quite like being able to travel back in time by listening to radio shows that play old songs.  It is like having a trip down memory lane–not just your memory lane, but the whole world’s memory lane; it’s a whole new experience for those who are too young to have heard the music of the past in real life.

Cover Songs That Beat the Originals

happy mondays Cover Songs That Beat the OriginalsMusic is an incredible art form…can you imagine how monotonous life would be without it? What would a graduation be without “Pomp and Circumstance”? What about a wedding without the “Wedding March”? Songs have impact; this impact often inspires other artists to make their own version of popular songs from the past. Sometimes, the audience gives a negative review of the revision—inspired, no doubt by some fond memory they have of the original. At other times, the cover version makes much bigger waves than the original; sometimes  to the point that everyone forgets who initially sang it.  With all of that in mind, we have compiled a short list of covers that ended up better than the originals. page go Cover Songs That Beat the Originals Continue reading Cover Songs That Beat the Originals »

15 Great Artists You Should Hear (15 -10)

A snare hit, thumping bass, a beautiful melody that cuts through your ear and infects your heart. We’ve all said the next three words before:“Who is that?”

nico 15 Great Artists You Should Hear (15  10)

The artists outlined in this series are a handful of artist that tend to fly a little bit below the radar. Some of these you will know, some you won’t–but you should get to know them all a little bit better.

15. Nico: Best known for being a drug-addled chanteuse, that should not repel anybody from the fact that she sang (a term I use loosely) some really beautiful songs. Listen to “These Days” off of the late 60’s album “Chelsea Girls.” With song contributions from a teenage Jackson Browne and a love-smitten Bob Dylan, the album evokes a warmth and elegance unmatched by many that followed.

14. Syd Barrett: Almost every music fan knows about Pink Floyd. And some of you may even know the leader of the group’s early years. But Syd Barrett is most remarkable to me as a damaged but brilliant (and brief) solo artist. He released two albums in 1970, “The Madcap Laughs” and “Barrett.” They were sparse, some say incomplete, but listen to “Terrapin” (off of the more superior “Madcap” album) and nothing exudes psychedelia better. Everyone from Bowie to Ray Davies cites Syd as essential, and for good reason. page go 15 Great Artists You Should Hear (15  10) Continue reading 15 Great Artists You Should Hear (15 -10) »
