  2. Tom Chaplin The Wave

  3. Sugar Ray

    Good, fun band. I saw them a couple times in the 90s. The second time(with Duran Duran and the Cure), McGrath had his leg in a cast and performed on a couch at center stage.
  4. This does have an XTC feel but to me it sounds more like a Colin song than one of Andys.

  7. We saw Panic! At The Disco last Friday at Eastern Illinois University's Lantz Arena(the site of my very first concert-Chicago in 1975).A good performance, though the acoustics aren't the best in there. first band really since Keane that is both A) Popular and That I like.
  8. Is Prince Dead ?

  9. Bohemian Rhapsody-Panic! At The Disco

  10. New Travis Album

    Coming out on the 29th. The new single was co-written by Tim Rice-Oxely of Keane In other Keane news, Tim and Jesse are working on a new Mt. Desolation album and Tom posted on FB yesterday that he was headed to L.A. today to record vocals and put finishing touches on his solo album. Seems like I've been waiting forever.

  12. Perfect Pop Songs

    There are a few songs that have that perfect sound to always make me smile when I hear them,No matter how I;m feeling at the time. The Cure are best known for songs of sadness and despair,but it's the occasional pop tune that Robert Smith pens that I really love.Especially this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS_ux2H473I I'm sure we all have some songs that always take us to a happy place for 3 or 4 minutes when we hear them.

  18. Don Henley-Cass County

    I'm not a big fan of country-but Henley does it very well here.I really love this album-he's still one of the best songwriters around.I got the Target special edition-it has a cover of Jackson Browne's Here Come Those Tears Again. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/albumreviews/don-henley-cass-county-20150921
