Monday Melody: Manic Monday

Of course I went there.

I mean, seriously, dudes, when I moved the occasional songs day to Monday, there was absolutely no way I could pass up the opportunity to use the Bangles.

Which I am. Right here, right now.

“Manic Monday” is a nice, catchy tune with some occasionally interesting lyrics, but it’s nothing groundbreaking. Mostly I remember it because of the music video, which showcases the band members, who all are girls.

Definitely interesting to young me.

Enjoy.

Monday Melody: Buffett Buffet

School’s out. Summer’s in. Which means it’s time to start thinking about beaches.

You can’t think about beaches without the name Jimmy Buffett coming up with the smiles on your faces.

Which means I’m giving you dudes a lovely little clip of a Buffett live performance of some of my favorite songs.

Enjoy!

Sunday Serenade: Love Letter

This is the kind of letter you want to get.

My favorite song from my favorite group discovered in 2013 would have to be, hands down, “Love Letter,” by Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes.

Proving that music truly is the international language (sorry, math. Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes are a fantastically entertaining Australian band that plays a great retro American soul sound.Maybe when we go interstellar.), Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes are an Australian band that performs the hottest retro American soul this side of the Commitments. (A tremendous movie, featuring 9 white guys from Dublin forming a great soul band.)

Clairy and the Rackettes are a sultry set of sirens who enjoy strutting on stage and playing up the 1950s vibe so deeply imbedded in American soul.

Here’s just a sample. For more info, you can find the band on (ugh) Facebook.

Enjoy.
