Before you ‘wtf’ this think about it clearly. Its possible their are similarities just in a hillbilly sense but ex wife ‘Cilla hasnt had enough media time lately so shes chosen a great way to get her name in headlines again.
Coming Of Age – Foster The People – Poppier than Imagine Dragons but that textured drum sound is familiar to both and Foster The People have better songs; this is above average indie pop with an eye on the charts – A
I am about as miserable as you’d expect and suffering from a terrible cold, all in all my I would be hard pressed to be much further down. The frigid temperature suits my mood (not to mention my writing abilities the past couple of days).
Olly Murs isn’t the only album that thrills me here, the Rebecca Ferguson sophomore effort will please you. She isn’t Emeli Sande but her song selection is very very strong and her voice splendid
Since life has no meaning, since it all boils down to “and what if I do? and what if i don’t?”, why fight the dream that everything matters including, and especially, me?
I love the idea of seeing musicians artifacts so to speak, I’m just not a fan of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Wait, you can actually just go to Graceland if you wanted to see Presley’s stuff. Memphis is amazing!
I can’t say I’m bothered by Robbie one way or the other, I am a big fan but this is awful thin gruel, otherwise this is all over the place and very English in many ways. Still, is EDM gonna lose its grip in 2014?

I’m gonna go along with English TV who had a show wherein ordinary folks like you and me voted for our fave Presley tracks. As my friend Ted Cogswell noted, many of these wouldn’t be among my top songs but I don’t actively dislike any of them. I mean, it is Elvis, what’s not to like?
Reflecting the diversity of the era, there are entries by Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Muddy Waters, and Hank Williams. Elvis Presley deservedly owned the era commercially and artistically, but one Charles Edward Anderson Berry could play a guitar just like a ringing the bell.
The Board of Directors at rock nyc typically restricts these lists to 25 songs, but I pushed this list to thirty so I wouldn’t have to artificially limit the number of Hank Williams entries. I have enough to explain to St. Peter without adding that oversight to my resume. OK, let’s start drinking and cheating, 1950s style.
Just out of the army, back in the charts, this is Presley, not an album artist, best album: it has the breadth of masterpiece, blues, pop, rock and roll, hits and deep cuts, It sprawls its way on to the charts and Presley, in an alternative universe, was using this as a gate to a future and not a goal post.
I’ve written about musicians I’ve never seen but wish I had but that isn’t this article! This is about musicians I didn’t see on specific tours or even concerts that I wish I’d caught. I mean more than wish, like dream of having been to
