There are some groups out there who consistently put out great tracks. Barenaked Ladies is one of those groups, in my opinion. This track is from their very first album which came out 22 years ago. Realizing that makes me feel old. Either way, it’s a nice mellow track with amazing lyrics that makes me smile every time I hear it.
I’ve listened to countless hours of Queen, and picking a track to include as the track of the week wasn’t as easy as one might think. When it came down to it, I picked this particular track because I think it’s a great representation of their style and song writing.
I still consider the riff that comes in after the minute long intro to be one of the best ever recorded.
I almost managed to miss posting this week’s track, due to the fact that I thought i had already posted it. Well, crisis averted! The track this week is from a duo that I sometimes catch myself thinking “I wonder what it is I like about these guys” about, and the I put on one of their tracks and it all comes back to me. The track I chose is not one of their bigger hits, but to me it’s one of their better.
As most people who are into music probably know, there’s a new Michael Jackson album being released. I thought I’d celebrate the musical genius that is Mr. Jackson by having what I think is easily his best work as the track of the week. Smooth Criminal is easily one of the best pop songs ever recorded, and the energy of it always gets me in a good mood.
