BlogCast ~ “Horny” Music

Full Disclosure: The following content is an abridged revision of my June 1, 2017 BlogCast. That said, let’s rock and roll!

 

Recording artists dig that a big part of a rock band’s success depends upon establishing a unique, distinctive sound (and a horn section would certainly do the trick). To be sure, were an on-air, www or club DJ to be remiss in mentioning them by name, their fans would know instantly… just by hearing a song intro’s opening notes.

Undoubtedly, the trailblazing Beatles album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band… with it’s opening, horn section enhanced title track… wound up inspiring other bands… of that same era… to be as musically adventurous… e.g., Chicago, Blood, Sweat & Tears and Ides of March.

We’ll now be hearing tracks from these horny sounding bands. You can EITHER casually play them back OR

For my more adventurous readers, you now have the opportunity to DJ your way through the rest of this post. If you’re new to these classic tracks, I’d advise first familiarizing yourself with each song’s beginning and ending measures. Next, cue up, in advance, the second and third tracks (hit play and pause while ensuring that all of the counters are reset at 0:00). You’re now ready to roll.

I believe you’ll find the extra effort well worth it, because merging these 3 tracks into 1 musical statement is fun and really sounds cool. At the risk of “tooting my own horn”, that Chicago and BS&T segue… in particular… really rocks!

 

Chicago ~ Make Me Smile

Blood, Sweat & Tears ~ Spinning Wheel

Ides of March ~ Vehicle

 

 

 

 

Julian’s Virtuosity, Voice and Visage ~ Sunday Song Series

Our Sunday Song Series stays alive at Week #55, courtesy of the Julian Lennon composition… Sunday Morning.

Needless to say… but I’ll say it anyway… he certainly inherited his assassinated father’s virtuosity, voice and visage. Whenever we’re listening to Julian’s performances, we can close our eyes and imagine that John is still alive and well.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you’ll be back for our next Sunday Song… 7 days from now…

 

 

 

 

Ain’t Got Time For Hate ~ Vid of the Day

Be you afloat in the calm waters of inclusion ISO validation or adrift
in the stormy seas of confusion ISO salvation, give a good listen to
Ms. Shemekia Copeland’s Ain’t Got Time For Hate. You’ll deem her
from the heart lyrical sentiments akin to the lighthouse beacon. Her
brilliant guiding light will deliver us all to the shores of a better world.

 

 

 

 

A Timeless Appeal ~ Vid of the Day

It’s not often that a cover artist’s interpretation can do full justice to a folk/rock classic, but Peter Benson’s dulcet voice and strumming fingers have fully captured what song composer Chet Powers had had on his mind and in his heart and soul.

Alas… their shared appeal for peace and brotherhood is so easily expressed in the spotlight… yet… such wisdom is so seldom acted out, upon the world stage.

 

C’mon people now
Smile on your brother (and sister)
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

1 Min 42 Secs of Instant Happiness ~ Vid of the Day

Not often that blog dialogue practically writes itself… that two copy and paste operations suffice.

Vid of the Day featured artist Ladyva will set up this clip. She’s followed by YouTuber / Commentator Yumatas’ testimonial.

Ladyva: “This is Johan Blohm’s boogie woogie dedicated to my dad Stefan, it’s one of his favourite boogie pieces.”

Yumatas: “Typical night of tubing… got off into political vids and was angry and depressed for a bit and then somehow I clicked on Miss Ladyva’s vid here… instantly happy again.”
