Soul Shaking Feel Good Tunes

I haven’t shared music with you guys in awhile so I made a pretty short list of some songs that I’ve been jamming out to recently. Clearly, they aren’t all new but I think that’s what is amazing about music… it can be timeless. One of my most favorite things in this world is when you feel a connection with the words, melodies, and beat and can just be in the moment. I’ve never felt anything else more powerful. So hopefully you may find a new song or two that resonates with...

Song Post #139: Bohemian Rhapsody

September 15, 2014 Song: “Bohemian Rhapsody” – Panic! at the Disco I think this is probably the best cover that I’ve seen anyone do for this song. Freddie had a magic set of pipes, and Panic! vocalist Brendon Urie reaches some beautiful falsetto. Take a listen and let me know what you...

At her reception, “Tonight, Tonight” started playing about midway through the celebration and I laughed because it made me remember the times when we were younger and she would bring over her CDs and expose me to artists like Nirvana, Bush and Smashing Pumpkins. “Tonight, Tonight” was my favorite song by the band.

I want to thank all of those who lost their lives for my freedom and in trying to save total strangers on 9/11/01. I still remember where I was that morning… in dance class at my high school. My band teacher ran in the room and was like, “You guys will never believe this… a plane just flew in to the Twin Towers!” He flicked the TV on and we were all like, “Wow how did that plane get so off track?” Little did we know that moment would change our lives forever. I called my mom later that period after the second plane hit and everything started to get more crazy because we have family that worked in the City at the that time. She promised she would let me know how everyone was when I got home from school. I can’t imagine the terror that day was for so many people–beyond the initial shock and how we’ve had to adapt and change our lives since that day–may your loved ones rest in...
