Friday New Releases – April 19th

Today is Good Friday!!  In more ways than I can explain right now.  Easter is this weekend and, the kids are out of school for a week…oh what should we do!!  First, we should check out the new music.  There isn’t a whole lot as it is Easter weekend. Only one that I will definitely listen to and the rest…maybe or maybe not.  My choices are highlighted in Blue.

  • 81fids1zw7l._ss500_  JohnnySwim – Moonlight – (Johnnyswim):  Johnnyswim are a husband/wife duo who I am not that familiar with.  I saw them open for Needtobreathe and I really enjoyed the show, so I will be checking them out.  Plus Chip Gaines of Fixer Upper loves them and his wife had them play for his birthday…I don’t think I could afford to have any band play for my birthday!!

  • 710paSDGp9L._SX522_  Rolling Stones – Honk – (Universal Music):  Yes, another greatest hits package from the aging rockers.  This was to be for their upcoming tour which is now postponed due to Mick having heart surgery.  Prayers out to you sir!!  I will spin it, but when I feel in the mood for it.  Won’t be rushing out to get.

Friday New Releases – September 21st

Another great week and some awesome releases to grab hold of today.  There is not a long list, but some varied and interesting stuff.  My choices are highlighted in Blue. Take a look through and let me know if there is anything that interests you and let me know. Let me know also if I missed something good that is out today…as I always miss a few.  Have a great weekend and Happy Listening!!

  • 61xyEppL38L._SS500  Slash – Living the Dream (Feat. Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators) – (Snakepit Records LLC):  Where does Slash find the time to record with the heavy tour schedule since Guns N Roses reunited (most of the band anyway).  Anything with Myles Kennedy on vocals is a must for me.  Slash’s name just adds to the excitement.  I will be spinning this one for sure.

  • 61UPmpqE+TL._AC_US436_QL65_  Hardcore Superstar – You Can’t Kill My Rock ‘n Roll – (Gain/Sony):  Here is a band that the US has kind of ignored and it is a shame. From what I have heard so far sounds great and this might be first up on the drive to work!!  Give them a chance and check them out.  You might like it!!

My Sunday Song – “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban

For My Sunday Song #30, my wife chose “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban.  This is the final selection of her 10 part series.  Hard to believe it has already been 10 weeks.  I guess that means I will have to start thinking of songs for the next 10 weeks.

Now back to the song, the song is off his second album ‘Closer’ and was released back in 2003.  The song was #1 on the Adult Contemporary Chart and made it as high as #73 on the Billboard Hot 100.  It even was nominated for a Grammy but didn’t win.

My wife was unable to write a post this week as she has been so busy preparing for my youngest daughter’s 10th birthday party and then to top it off my daughter got sick with the flu which we had to reschedule the party for another weekend.  So I will write up the final song she chose and I am sorry as it won’t be as good as what she would say and it won’t even be about why she chose the song.  It will be about her and my girls.

What an amazing and inspirational song.  Josh Groban has such an amazing and powerful voice. This version of the song is so moving and when played at the right moment can bring you to tears like if it was played in some sort of video montage.  Come to think of it I think I used it in a video I did for my wife for Mother’s Day one year.  I am sure it made her cry as it probably did me as I was putting the pictures together for the video.
