It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since Jewel hit the airwaves as a 21-year old, providing one of the counter-punches to the grunge movement with “Who Will Save Your Soul”. The song truly is an amazing combination of catchy music, beautiful and very…
The song truly is an amazing combination of catchy music, beautiful and very characteristic singing (it's hard to miss that distinct voice unless you're these people), and provocative lyrics. Jewel basically makes what every singer/songwriter who picks up a guitar aspires to seem effortless.

When I initially started running, one of the hardest parts was feeling like I was going it alone.  Running when I could fit it in got things done, but not having much interaction with others made it hard for me to stay accountable and dedicated. I then…

Gonna take another step back to my college days with this week’s Midweek Music Break.  Fuel hit it big in 1998 with their release of Sunburn, which vaulted them into the public eye, but it was the 2000 Something Like Human album that brought us “Bad Day”.…

Ok, so 4 days to go until my marathon, so I’m going to go with something a little cliché: Cake’s “The Distance” Yea, it’s probably overdone when it comes to running, but it’s still a great song by a great band.  And it’s always great to throw back to this…
Yea, it's probably overdone when it comes to running, but it's still a great song by a great band. And it's always great to throw back to this song. Besides, this fit's almost too well with my efforts: The sun has gone down and the moon has come up. And long ago somebody left with the cup ...

I came across “Quiet Little Voices” when exploring for new music, I think on Pandora, a number of years ago, but the band name (We Were Promised Jetpacks) also stood out.  After one listen, I was already hooked. The song has a great energy and passion,…

A little bit of humor this week, as a break from my last build-up week of running for the upcoming Pittsburgh Marathon. I love the throwback feel of this song (similar to 1991’s “Pin The Tail On The Donkey” by Naughty By Nature), but with The Lonely…
I love the throwback feel of this song (similar to 1991's “Pin The Tail On The Donkey” by Naughty By Nature), but with The Lonely Island's signature twist (“Wait, that's gross…”). It's witty, absurd, and a little bit disgusting (if you take it seriously…). And, no, I will not be spelling it out ...

With the new Amplitude game coming closer and closer to fruition, I wanted to throw back to a song that appeared in the original 2003 game: 90’s icons Garbage with “Cherry Lips”. While the song was a little out of the band’s typical melancholy and cynical…
While the song was a little out of the band's typical melancholy and cynical mold, the song hit the Amplitude wheelhouse with a bang, while including it's own twist (which matches the video above). It's probably one of the catchiest songs that Garbage has ever written (which is saying something ...

Ah, 80’s kid nostalgia wrapped up in a song…that’s a pretty accurate description of Weezer’s “Heart Songs”.  It’s basically a musical trip down memory lane as Weezer shares many of their musical influences with us. Everyone has songs like this: These are…
