50 years ago, these were the No. 1 albums and music singles of 1969

In 1969 you either bought your music on black plastic circles and used a needle to scratch sounds out of the vinyl, heard it on the airwaves, most likely on a lo-fi AM radio, or, if you were lucky, saw your favorite bands and musicians live in concert. The best-selling album of the year, Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” plateaued at No. 4 on the charts, but that’s probably because the 10 albums that made it to the top were more uniformly solid, nearly all of them still considered classics....

I Still Have Heroes: The Man in Black and The Men in Black

by: Bill Sheridan      At age 75, I no longer have celebrity or athlete heroes. I’ve come to realize that they are simply men and women blessed with God-given talents capable of thrilling stadiums full of adoring concert-goers, or rabid football fans. I still do respect their skills and appreciate their hard work. In my teens through my twenties, I was enamored with the likes of Elvis Presley, Joe Namath, Sandy Koufax, and Buddy Holly. But my real hero of heroes was the late Johnny Cash. I owne...

Cadillac: Providing Americans with Luxury Vehicles (and Music)

Cadillac is one of the subsidiaries of General Motors that produces luxury vehicles. The company was established in 1902. Seven years later they were purchased by General Motors.

Here’s how a big band celebrates Elvis Presley’s birthday

Wise men say only fools would miss this big band birthday celebration for the king of rock. With the help of a classic Elvis jumpsuit and a big band, South Bay native Chris Maddox and his group Graceband will once again channel Elvis Presley and his Vegas years for a celebration in honor of the rocker’s 84th birthday. The Jan. 6 show at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach — yes, we know the King’s real birthday was Jan. 8, but nobody wants to party on a Tuesday — will include songs from Presley’s late ...

What Makes Music Sound Like Christmas Music? Hear the Single Most Christmassy Chord of All Explained

During the past few months of this year, as in those same months of any year, we've been hearing a great deal of Christmas music. Some of the songs in the mix — "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "The Christmas Song" — few of us have ever known a time without, and others make it in because of their seasonally themed lyrical content. But certain songs just sound like Christmas songs, somehow, and to understand what, in musical terms, fills those co...

Listen to a Heartfelt Musical Retelling of O. Henry’s “Gift of the Magi” with Hanky in Hand

It’s that time of year when certain songs conspire with certain moods to hit you right in the ol’ brisket. The feeling is voluptuous, and not necessarily unpleasant, provided there’s a bathroom stall or spare bedroom should you need to flee a party like Cinderella, as some old chestnut threatens to turn you into a blubbering mess. Let the kiddies deck the halls, jingle bells, and prance about with Rudolph and Frosty. The best secular songs for grown ups are the ones with a thick current of long...

'Tis the Season...for Christmas Music (Music Notes) (OT)

Nick Lowe Christmas, also known as "Songs-You're-Sick-Of Season," is nearly here. If you're looking for some good Christmas music, may I once again recommend my favorite Christmas album, Nick Lowe's 2013 Quality Street. Actually it's not a "favorite," it's the only Christmas album I like. Nick is an Englishman, born in Surrey. Sixty-nine now, he figured in power pop and New Wave in the UK back in the day. He was a producer for artists like Graham Parker, and he wrote the Elvis Costello hit ...

In Two Small Steps For Womankind, The Rock Hall Inducts Janet Jackson & Stevie Nicks

Thursday morning, I woke up to a miracle: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which has had an embarrassing dearth of female honorees in recent years, has managed to induct not one but two highly deserving women in its 2019 class. That’s right, y’all, Stevie Nicks and Janet Jackson are in!This was Jackson’s third nomination (she became eligible in 2007), and the first nomination for Nicks as a solo artist (she became eligible in 2006). Jackson has faced an unfair uphill climb in music since her...

The Story of The Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York,” the Boozy Ballad That Has Become One of the Most Beloved Christmas Songs of All Time

Drugstore Cowboy, Barfly, Leaving Las Vegas, even Bonnie and Clyde… we love a good story about doomed, down-and-out lovers. Whatever emotional reservoir they tap into, when written well and honestly, such stories have broad cultural appeal. Which in part explains the overwhelming popularity of The Pogues’ 1987 classic “Fairytale of New York,” the kind of “anti-Christmas song,” writes Dorian Lynsky at The Guardian, “that ended up being, for a generation, the Christmas song.” Many holiday ...

10 Covers That Creatively Transform The Original Song

Covers are a a central idea of the western pop scene, often rising to become more famous than the original version of a song. Some of the best covers have been able to truly reimagine a song in a way which gives it a fresh meaning, or causes it to evoke and entirely different feel in the listener. Here we look at ten such examples. _________________________ Guest post by Evan Zwisler of Soundfly's Flypaper Cover songs are ubiquitous in pop culture. In fact, I’d even go as far to...

Going after Trump by attacking the King

Hating on Donald Trump is a full-time endeavor for many in politics and the media, especially the media. His critics condemn him when he screws up, which is often, and when he does good things, too. The most committed Trump-haters excoriate him for actions they’d previously demanded from him – or wanted his predecessors to take. For decades, liberal activists have hoped, for example, that Jack Johnson, the early 20th century heavyweight champion of the world, would be pardoned for his conviction...

At Folsom Prison: A Mini-Doc on Johnny Cash’s Historic & Career-Changing Concert

It was the opposite of superstar rock concerts, or even a sweaty, dark stage like that at CBGB’s in New York. But the dining hall at Folsom Prison was the setting for a concert that would give Johnny Cash, on the verge of a career collapse, a second chance on life. And it would become one of the unlikeliest venues in the history of country music. Nothing was the same after this unlikeliest of turnarounds. After the album recorded at this gig, Cash would be hurtled into superstardom. He’d...

Robin "Sourdough" Sloan is using a machine-learning autocomplete system to write his next novel

Earlier this year, Sloan published some preliminary information on a machine learning system for writing prose that he was noodling around with. Since then, the system has expanded and he is now using it to generate prompts as he writes his next novel, invoking it midsentence to get suggestions for com...
