ALL I NEEEEEEEEEEEED IS THE RHYTHM DIVINE!

A bit of my current musical tastes to share with you:
-
-Jimmy Eat World is a great little indie alternative emo band out of Mesa, AZ that had a big hit earlier this decade called "The Middle", which I actually used to do very well for karaoke. They always seem to write some catchy tunes, and here's one of their latest songs which I really like, called "Big Casino":

-
-Out of Detroit: The White Stripes, which is one great little duo! Very simple use of instruments, but they're quite good. Out of their latest album Icky Thump, here's this fine little tune, "You Don't Know What Love Is":

-And England, home of history's greatest bands gives us Radiohead's latest stunning album called In Rainbows, and this terrific song "Bodysnatchers":

-Miguel Bosé has been an artist now for 30 years! Boy is he one of my favs, although perhaps not too well known by most of you. The very gay Spaniard Miguel and his singer niece Bimba Bosé in this nifty 2007 remake of one of his big hits some 20 years ago called Como Un Lobo ("Like A Wolf"):
-

-Last but not least, this great little group from Scotland called Travis! And here they are, performing a cover of The Beatles' song "Lovely Rita"! And I gotta say, they are amazing in re-creating it too:

I think I actually first discovered your blog due to a reference to Miguel. Talk about evolution through the years! Bimba is gorgeous, and I love that he never stays in the same spot for long and has held up nicely through the years. Very gay? Oh, you really think so?

I'm listening to the Jimmy Eat World song on YouTube. The hook sounds like the ending of a teen movie.

Yeah! I love that song Lovely Rita

Travis: Fran used to live by me. He walked by me several times as I waited on my dealer at the end of his road... I was half tempted to ask if he wanted a little something too... imagine scoring rockstar amounts?!?~~ wahey!!

Hey there! I just wanted to let you that google blocked me outta my blog for all of Sunday! I got an email from Google saying that my blog might be a spam blog?! The email said it was most likely a mistake and they were working it out? I have no idea what that means!!! After a full 24 hours without access to my "blogging buddies", I of course include you in this group cause I love ya,they just opened my blog up without another word! Wierd huh? Have you ever heard of such a thing?
