Self-reflective question o’ the day: How much music have I never heard?

I’m not really sure why, but this little tune is stuck in my head. So, being neighborly,  I thought I’d share it with you too. It’s all about rendering unto Caesar. (more…)

Ah, words. Can’t live with ’em; can’t live without ’em. Right now, I can’t live with ’em.

U2, Mysterious Ways.

It’s the first week of Advent, and though by no means is this the definitive Advent Music mix, I hope you will enjoy it. We have a couple of versions of a timeless classic, Matthew Maher, an unknown group, an ensemble, Joan Osbourne, and Rare Earth, believe it or not.

It’s Monday and I realize that I haven’t done a music post in a while. I was all caught up in the Christmas Season, see, and many of those posts included music.

But now it’s Ordinary Time, and I’m putting my VJ hat back on. Pretend that I’m driving this van around today, playing the following songs on a non-stop loop, with no particular place to go. (more…)

Johann Sebastian Bach loved coffee, before coffee houses were cool. He and his musician friends hung out at a place in Liepzig that was something along the lines of Central Perk in the television series Friends, and they jammed, and penned masterpieces, and stuff.
