Have you ever watched the comedy, Flight of the Conchords. The show follows the adventures of the title group from New Zealand and I think it’s extremely funny.
The music from the second season of the show is being released today and, while I prefer last season’s songs, these are pretty hilarious. “Ramblings Through the Avenues of Time” sounds like they are making fun of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” and then there are songs like “Too Many Dicks [On the Dancefloor]” and “You Don’t Have to be a Prostitute” which really need no explanation.
Producers are open to creating a …read more
Tim McGraw is releasing his album, Southern Voice, tomorrow and I’ve had a chance to preview it and I think it’s good country music. I wouldn’t say that I was blown away but the tracks do display Tim’s consistent sound.
The first single from the album is “It’s a Business Doing Pleasure With You” which was written Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger and singer-songwriter Brett James. The song is about “the price paid for loving a woman who loves designer labels.” Even though Nickelback has more of a rock sound, Chad is actually from Alberta, Canada where country music and cowboys …read more
Grammy-nominated band, Five For Fighting, has released their newest album, Slice, this week and I had a chance to preview it and it’s basically what you would expect from this group. If you don’t immediately recognize them from their name, you might be familiar with their songs “Superman (It’s Not Easy)” and “100 Years.”
Here’s the track listing:
Note To The Unknown Soldier
Above The Timberline
Story Of Your Life
Love Can’t Change The Weather
I have to admit that a lot of it kind of blends in to each other but the music in the …read more
It was a cold middle-of-winter evening of last year when a group of friends headed to The Legion Hall in Toronto, Canada to check out a friend of a friends new band called Parallels. I didn’t know what to expect. I knew that the drummer, Cameron Findlay, was the former drummer in Crystal Castles and there was no doubt in mind I was going to be impressed. When the lead vocalist Holly Dodson came up to the mic and performed their first song, I was in awe. Time literally stood still because finally, this was a band that got it …read more
British singer, Leona Lewis, was punched in the face at a book signing yesterday. The attack was apparently unprovoked according to eyewitnesses.
Variety reports that Lewis was at the Waterstone’s book store in the Picadilly area of London and had been meeting and greeting fans for more than an hour when a young man, who had been standing in line, just walked up and punched her in the face.
The event was to celebrate her new autobiography, Dreams, and I’m sure she never dreamed that something like this could or would happen to her. How crazy. Lewis was apparently shaken up and …read more
Canadian rock group, Nickelback, compiled footage from a concert where they performed for 35,000 scream fans at the world-famous Sturgis “Rockin’ the Rally” show.
The show Live at Sturgis 2006 was originally released on DVD earlier this year but is now available on Blu-ray for the first time and I know that their fans are going to want to pick up a copy.
The explosive show (just look at those flames on the cover!) was filmed using 15 high-definition cameras to capture the band performing songs for their albums Silver Side Up, The Long Road and All the Right Reasons.
Here’s the track …read more
Shakira is releasing her She Wolf album today and it will probably fare relatively well considering how popular the self-titled track is. Have you seen the video? If you haven’t, you’ve got to watch it below. A lot of people think it’s pretty hot but I’m more of the “this is bordering on skanky” opinion.
Here’s the track listing:
“Did It Again”
“Men In This Town”
“Lo Hecho Está Hecho”
“Loba” (”She Wolf” Spanish version)
Now that we’ve got all of the formalities out of the way, watch the raunch:
Stephen Gately, who is best known as a member of the group Boyzone, was found dead yesterday while on holiday in Majorca, which is just off the coast of Spain. He was vacationing with his husband, Andrew at the time. As of right now, a cause of death hasn’t been determined but he had spent the night out before he died.
Boyzone manager Louis Walsh said: "We’re all absolutely devastated. I’m in complete shock. I was only with him on Monday at an awards ceremony. We don’t know much about what’s happened yet… He was a great man."
Fellow band …read more
Drake is heading back into the studio after taking some time off after suffering a knee injury on stage this past July. His single “Best I Ever Had” exploded and a lot of fans have been eagerly awaiting his debut album which is tentatively titled Thank Me Later. It’s supposed to be released in February 2010 so hopefully things are still on track.
"I’m able to walk around, so I’m working very hard on the album," Drake told Billboard.com. "I’ve been out of the scene for so long because I’ve been off my leg. Sitting at home in your apartment …read more
Everyjoe was recently on the red carpet at Canada’s Walk of Fame.
You’re probably thinking, “isn’t that more a Splendicity thing”? Well, you’re right. Splendicity was there, too. But, in addition to movie stars, supermodels and fashion icons, there were also some legendary musicians, like the one and only Tom Cochrane.
Soaring to the heights of his success with the infectious Life is a Highway, Cochrane’s presence will always be felt in the Canadian music scene. Although, these days he opts for philanthropic and charity work with World Vision Canada, he still has his finger on the pulse of the Canadian music …read more
