In a similar vein to My Chemical Romance, The Used has been great for solid music for more than the last decade.  While they broke through with 2002’s The Taste of Ink, I’ve enjoyed much of their more recent music, including 2007’s Pretty Handsome…

Following his mini-cameo in the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show, where he spent less time on-screen than he did in The Hunger Games, I thought I’d call up my favorite Lenny Kravitz song, the no-frills and moody “If You Can’t Say No”. What’s astounding about…

One of the great hallmarks of music is that it transcends barriers, so today I bring you a band out of Sweden that definitely doesn’t fit the ABBA mold: a band by the name of Movits! and their song “På drift, Norrbotten”. What’s great about this song is…

With the radio turned low, I swore I heard this song this morning (it wasn’t, but stayed in my head all day anyway…). While their big hit was Two Princes, the Spin Doctors played the flip-side of the coin with “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” (and, actually,…
While their big hit was Two Princes, the Spin Doctors played the flip-side of the coin with “Little Miss Can't Be Wrong” (and, actually, “Little Miss Can't Be Wrong” was released first). It fits strictly in the 90s alternative “we're through, so get outta my life” motif, but has the same upbeat ...

Now that winter is here, a new phase of running begins… With cooler temperatures and more layers, the running feels a bit different.  While not overheating is nice (since I run really warm anyway), the chill hitting my lungs is not always so pleasant.…

In what was the highlight of the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show, out of nowhere comes Missy Elliott and steals the entire show and save us all from the modern pop wasteland.  While it’s hard to pick just one song out, I’m going with “Work It”. While…

While I do enjoy winter, as a runner I’m not always a fan of how I see some people “maintain” their sidewalks.  Most of the time, it’s not that bad, and other times you bit the dust, as I did earlier this week.  Thankfully, the damage was limited to a…

With the new Everclear video being debuted later this week, it seems like a good time to revisit their catalog.  (Besides the fact that they still reign as my favorite band.) “Portland Rain” comes off the band’s 7th album, it’s first after leaving Capitol…
“Portland Rain” comes off the band's 7th album, it's first after leaving Capitol Records and making some changes to the band's lineup. Overall, I think there's a lot of great tracks on this album, but Portland Rain comes across as a little more personal than the rest.

After going with non-traditional holiday songs the last few weeks, I’m coming back around to a traditional version of a longtime Christmas standby.  While the song dates back to 1943, it’s the 1965 recording of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” by…

Ok, you could call me a sucker for the non-traditional, but mostly, I just think this song is fun. Pep Squad’s version of Feliz Navidad from the Happy Christmas album. While opening with a traditional feel, it quickly ramps up into a fast-paced pop-punk…
While opening with a traditional feel, it quickly ramps up into a fast-paced pop-punk song complete with the brass. It just has a feel of all the fun and joy that I associate with the season, both as a kid and now with my kids. I WANNA WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Ok, it’s that time of year to start hitting the Christmas music… Today I bring to you a song that completely creeped my mom out the first time she heard it: Everclear’s cover of Santa Baby from Alternative Rock X-mas. While the original Eartha Kitt…
