5 Songs That Should Have Played At Your Prom

It’s that time of year again. Florists are making corsages, limos are being rented and tuxedos laundered. No, those teenage girls running across town in strapless dresses probably didn’t rob a Macy’s (but maybe they did). It’s just prom season. Even if prom seems like ancient history, some memories can’t be forgotten, no matter how hard you try to repress them. Chances are good that your prom sound track was composed mainly of whatever was playing on the radio at the time. But what would a playlist that actually reflected…

SHOW REVIEW: Fitz & The Tantrums, Pensacola, FL

I don’t exactly remember how it was that I first stumbled upon Fitz and The Tantrums. But what I do know is that ever since that first time hearing them, their name has always lingered around in the chaotic library of music I have built within the confines of my mind.

GUEST BLOG: In Defense Of The Rock Duet

The first rock duet I experienced was the epic “Summer Nights,” sung by rebel-turned-romantic Danny Zuko and good-girl-gone-(eventually) bad Sandy Olsson  in the movie Grease. In my 8-year-old mind, Danny was just all right (I found Kenickie’s scrappy-thug vibe much more intriguing) and Rizzo was WAY cooler than Sandy (I’m a natural brunette…and I’m Italian).
