Name that Classic Song

August 27, 2018

Dear Readers,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVCoGNIZMR0

This is a live recording of a 60s classic that I liked to play in my Box Office Concerts, but I never got around recording it in my 150 song OUTSIDE THE BOX set of 9CDs – now streaming everywhere.

Can you name it, and the group that made if famous?

See what you think, vote thumbs up, and share if you like.

What Makes Great Music (according to 3 CEOs)

February 8, 2018

What Makes Great Music (According to the 3 CEOs)

1. Start in the studio with a synthesizer, a drum machine, and auto tune. Make sure every instrument is a mechanical device. You want a fake, robotic sound where every note can be controlled

2. Get a song written by a committee so there is no heart left in it by the time they are done. Make sure the lyrics don’t mean much, never protest anything, and are watered down a lot.

3. Find a producer who can over produce it and bury any warmth or feeling, in excess layers of noise.

4. Take any soul out of the voice by over tracking it till it’s a pitch perfect robot sound.

5. Make a video where you spend thousands, so no indie can afford to match it. Best if it’s some weird surrealism that hides the song under flashy visuals that look like cotton candy tastes..

6. Give it to the press that praises sound alikes as if they are the best ever, and raves about generic music. Press release journalism is a must. Let them interview you where every question is a complement.

TeXas Video Showdown and KERA

October 24, 2017

Musea Readers know that I have my problems with both NPR and local stations KERA and KXT for their lack of support for artists.

So I was surprised, when googling my name to find this posted in April of 2015 on the KERA Art and Seek site.

I had sent them a story and link feeling that they would never do anything about it.

Take a look, and know that the TeXas Video Showdown, worst video ever made… on purpose, is still going strong with thousands of hits.

When you go to the link, note that there is a place to add comments. Please do if you would like to support the cause.

Now when I criticize their coverage I have to change, “never covered” to” that one time!”
