Birthday of Elvis and his song Treat Me Nice is in the middle of the Music Change

January 8, 2016

Today is the birthday of Elvis Presley and he is still relevant to music. His song Treat Me Nice, is leading the Texas Video Showdown a video challenge of a music industry that is down to 5 pop stars. Vote – go to the link and vote thumbs up. Join a thousand others.

People should know that one indie musician, representing all musicians except a few pop stars, has challenged the 5+ pop stars to the Texas Video Showdown, and Swift, Perry, Beyonce, Bieber, 1D, etc. even with all their fans, are loosing so far. Readers that want a big music change – please vote for the thousands of good musicians that are not one of the five or so sound alike pop stars. if you know a great musician, they are probably out of the music business no matter how good they are.

The indie musician, Hunkasaurus, has purposely made the worst video ever – he didn’t even comb his hair – with simple solid fun music to challenge the over produced generic corporate music of the sound alike pop stars. Help him by voting thumbs up on youtube.

Can’t Help Falling in Love (some good versions)

November 28, 2015

Start with a great song, Can’t Help Falling In Love.
Then add the great versions.

Here are my favorites:
Elvis – he made the hit, and a great classic.
UB40 – updated the sound and speeded it up.
A-Teens – gave it a fun fast pop sound.

Here’s my version in the back to basics, postism styel – very very simple

Just Posted a Youtube Video – Treat Me Nice

April 21, 2015

Musea Readers,

Last Sunday, I posted a new video on youtube – a rough raw live version of Treat Me Nice – one of my ‘show off’ songs, that I did in the Box Office. I call it a ‘show off’ song because it’s fast, uptempo and ‘has a good beat’.

For those who would like to hear the studio version:

Musea Art Contest 4/22

April 22, 2013

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
What did Elvis keep in the attic of Graceland? Clue, it’s kinda creepy on a stormy night.
According to Lisa Marie, “I took a couple of steps forward and found the light switch. The yellow bulb lit a long line of clothing racks. there were all Gladys’s clothes. Elvis had saved everything. All her precious belongings were here. I could feel her spirit.”
I had no correct eligible answers. Seems y’all’s light didn’t come on on this one. I don’t dumb down/so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of my NEW cd CALLED ‘30′! – (first anti-band CD) or my NEWER cd CALLED ‘NEXT”(‘06) or my NEWEST cd CALLED ‘THIRDS” (May ‘07) or my MORE NEWEST cd Called “FOUR-TH” (‘08) or my MOST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘5-TH (Nov.’09) or my MORE NEWEST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘6-TH’(Feb ’12)( one of the 6 CD set). (has them all plus videos and more) if you are the first to E-MAIL ME AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ blanks of course) with the correct answer to this art question.
DEDICATION: These contests are dedicated to my sister, Peggy, who answered more of the questions correctly than anyone else.

FINE PRINT: The CD prize is only available to those with mailing addresses in the US. Foreign winners will have to settle for the miniscule fame alone, and the satisfaction of a job well done. But don’t forget you can listen to all the music on the website, whether you won or lost – and I’d be glad if you did!


Lots of big paychecks to TV personalities. Who on the TV screen makes the most money?
Good luck!
