I thought I’d go with great songs with great videos for your viewing pleasure…

I just remembered I was bringing it back from the dead.

This speaks to me, today:

The Devil Wears a Suit – Kate Miller-Heidke (Spotify)


I trusted Baz completely to deliver Elvis, and he did not disappoint.

I think it’s a pretty fair take, inaccurate in spots, but the grandeur of the man is captured. It was an emotional ride like only the best of the best movies can do. I’m so happy to have gotten to see this in theater.

I would say that even if you’re not an Elvis fan you will be by the end. What he did is chronicled perfectly with the historical changes happening all around. Seems like no expense was spared, and the worlds are convincingly authentic. I’m predicting three specific Oscar nods: best actor, best supporting actor and best director. We shall see later.

How could you NOT root for Elvis, when he was all about the music?


Tariq Ali Questions John Lennon About Music & Politics

Pete Townsend from The Who said “I think the guy that runs it is a f*cking crook.”

Robert Brown wrote:

The CEO of Spotify is worth ($)2.5 billion.

Meanwhile, all the artists are paid next to nothing, and everybody from Tool to Coldplay, to Taylor Swift has gone to war with Spotify over their unfair treatment of artists. Pink Floyd said this about Spotify, “those services (Spotify and other streaming services) should fairly pay the artists and creators who make the music at the core of their businesses. For almost all working musicians, it’s also a question of economic survival.”

The Black Keys has a great one, “if somebody’s making money then the artist should be getting a fair cut of it. The owner of Spotify is worth something like $3 billion… he’s richer than Paul McCartney and he’s 30, and he’s never written a song.

”Beck said, “What Spotify pays me is not even enough to pay the musicians playing with me or the people working on the discs, It’s not working. Something is going to have to give.” (Beck won a Grammy this year, by the way.)

Thom York from Radio Head said, “I feel like as musicians we need to fight the Spotify thing. I feel that in some ways what’s happening in the mainstream is the last gasp of the old industry. Once that does finally die, which it will, something else will happen.”
