Art is my passion – Music my obsession

Amazing Cover Songs: Your Mama Don’t Dance by Poison

Let me start off by boldly and fearlessly stating that I’m not a poison fan by any stretch of the imagination. However, I have no problem admitting that Brett Michaels has an amazing voice.

I’m tickled at their version of this class I rock oldie. I even like it better…

Rock Music Documentaries: Journey Behind the Music

I’ve been fortunate enough to see Journey in concert only once in my life. A dear friend of mine took me to see Journey with Loverboy and Pat Benater for my birthday. It rained and we were soaking wet. It’s a good memory. I fell in love with Journey when…

Songs that Shaped Music: “Lick it Up” Kiss

Not everyone is a Kiss fan. I, however, am a huge Kiss fan. The huge marketability of this band pushed their record sales to second only to the Beatles. You’ll notice that Kiss makes my lists more than once. If you’ve ever seen Kiss in concert you understand what makes…

Top Ten Culture Club Songs of All Time

Call them a guilty pleasure but I have to be a huge fan of Culture Club. Although I take most of my music love from the seventies and eighties, I was rather young the first time I’ve heard Boy George. If the 80s can be considered the decade of decadence,…

Top Ten Styx Songs of All Time

Greatest One Hit Wonders of Rock: “Jenny” by Tommy Tutone

This song was made famous in the early 80’s and is still well known to this day. Although the album was a flop and caused internal bickering that ultimately resulted in the band’s breakup- they will always be remembered for this song. By far- One of the Greatest One Hit…

Amazing Cover Songs: Anarchy in the UK by Megadeth

Well…maybe this isn’t one of Megadeth’s most loved songs. It does seem more than a bit unlike their previous albums. Yet…not many can remake a song from “The Sex Pistols”- not well anyway. Some might think a good cover song should include a band’s own style. That may be true…

Top Ten Songs from The Go Gos

A bit hokey? Perhaps. Before dominating much of the 80s music charts, these girls actually began as a punk band. As wholesome as we all see Belinda Carlisle, these girls “raunched it up” with the best of them.

Call it a guilty pleasure, but I still say these Valley…
