Did Michael Bublé Steal Rhett Miller’s Song?

By Alyson Camus | June 26, 2015

“You know, in a restaurant you can’t really hear what’s happening. I thought, “Yeah, that’s my song. That sounds like ‘Perfume.’” Which was the single off the 97’s Grand Theatre Vol. 2 in 2011. And as the song went on I realized, wait, there’s a pre-chorus section; that’s not in the song. And then it hit the chorus, and the chorus was different from my song, but weirdly, the lyrics in the chorus were the lyrics in my song. And so I Shazam-ed it, of course, and I figured out it was the Michael Bublé song called “It’s A Beautiful Day.”

Jeff And Jeannie Are Getting Married, “Everything” by Michael Buble Is Their Wedding Song

By Iman Lababedi | April 30, 2015

The writing credit for “Everything” goes to Buble, his pianist Alan Chang and Amy Foster-Giles, and it really is a terrific song. The album was a smash though “Everything” stalled. Still, it builds along American stadard faultlines and finds a middle ground between pop and easy listening rock. As full hearted declarations of love goes, this is pretty thorough:

Michael Bublé At Madison Square Garden, Monday, July 7th, 2014, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | July 8, 2014

There are reasons why Michael Buble is the biggest cabaret star in the works: he wears a tux well,he pushes classic rock and soul with the same fervor as the American Songbook, he’s a funny charmer. But it soon becomes very clear that the man is a lightweight.

Stubhub… Cheaper Than Ticketmaster???

By Iman Lababedi | July 7, 2014

Stubhub for sold out gigs we know, but it is also a place where people unload tickets they don’t want or speculators go to dump the excess tickets in their world. Helen Bach is such an expert she will wait till the last minute and pick em up as the prices topple, I got burnt on Fiona Apple that way once so tend not to have the stomach for it but this is really the open market at its best.

Michael Buble Where There Are No Cheap Seats

By Iman Lababedi | March 9, 2014

He is probably the best at what he does, crossover cabaret. I’ve seen him on stage a couple of times and was quite impressed though not by singing but by his demeanor. The man is a lot of fun and he is a good mainstream pop starer charmer with a wide smile and just enough humility in his step. But he isn’t worth a hundred bucks.
