Movie of Your Life

On a quick side note. I love this video. Not just because Spencer Day is adorable and the song is great but its a great throwback song and video back to the time when movies and music were a classy act.

Did I also mention how adorable he is?

Snow Day!

Well its another snow day here in Richmond and like usual I'm snowed in listening to crazy amounts of music, dancing around my apartment in my pjs and attempting to do something productive like cleaning. I have heard many new bands today but none have stuck with me like "April Smith and the Great Picture Show" song Colors.

I have never heard of this band before but I'm glad for snowdays like today that give me the chance to discover them....

Grammy Awards

Well the Grammy Awards are this upcoming weekend and while I am super excited to see what exactly Lady Gaga will be wearing on this years red carpet (because lets admit it to ourselves, the Grammy red carpet with the glitter and the leather kicks the Oscars ass), I love the performances a little bit more. The Grammys are a time for people to make names for themselves, to either introduce themselves to the music world or remind the audience why they are there in the first place. There have been numerous amounts of memorable Grammy performances and moments so whats a better time then now to make a list!

Here are some of my all time favorite Grammy moments:

1. Christinas Closing Argument

Remember when people use to argue over who was better, Christina or Britney? No? Well, at one point there was a debate, and you could tell that Christinas camp was not all too happy about
it. She held more talent in her pinky then Britney did in her entire body and used the 2007 Grammys to put the debate to rest. Watch her insane rendition of James Brown's "Its a Man's Man's World" because its something that probably should not have worked, but somehow someway it did and it shot her into a league all of her own.

2. Dear World, Introducing Jennifer Lopez

Call me crazy but when it comes down to a non-fashion-expert like me, Jennifer Lopez's dress at the 2000 awards might be the most famous gown....ever. Plunging right below her navel and held in all the right places the Versace designed look was the statement that turned Jenny from the Block into the lady we now know as...J.Lo.

Here's what may have been going on in her head before the awards: "I'm going to be presenting, and I want a dress that will really get me noticed. I'm thinking something very low cut. No lower. Lower. LOWER! I want people to see my belly button, also most of my chest. Okay now I want a long slit up the bottom so people can see my legs. Longer. LONGER! What are you talking about, this does not at all look like a cheap
vacation saraong purchased at a Sandals Resort gift shop. This is Versace, people!

3. Marvin Gaye Finally Gets His

It had been years since Motown superstar Marvin Gaye's last hit. By the time of his 1982 album, Sexual Healing, he had been nominated for several awards, with no wins. Not one!! But when the album's title song became a runaway smash hit, Marvin Gaye had his comback tune. He won two Grammys that night in 1983 (everyone knew he deserved it, look at the standing Ovation). Bravo!

4. Soy Bomb!!

Bob Dylan was in top form during the 1998 Grammy Awards. His most recent studio album, Time Out of Mind, had earned rave reviews and multiple Grammy nominations, including "Album of the Year" (which it would win later that night). The legendary singer took the stage to perform "Love Sick," a dark and haunting song about — wait, does that say 'SOY BOMB?'

What was to be Dylan's comeback performance suddenly turned ridiculous when a shirtless man jumped on stage and writhed around with the phrase 'Soy Bomb' scrawled across his scrawny chest. What did it mean? Why did he do it? Was it a plea for a more tofu-friendly diet? What was going on?

Dylan glanced over at his impromptu stage partner with a worried, "Woah, where did that come from?" look, slowly inching away as he kept playing. Soy Bomb (a.k.a. New York City-based performance artist Michael Portnoy, who pulled the stunt...well, it's a rather long explanation) lasted the better part of a minute before being whisked away by security.

5. The Unveiling of the Glove

Michael Jackson won a record eight Grammys in February 1984. Rightly so, as Thriller is one of the biggest-selling, most popular albums ever. Jacko put in quite a performance that night, however, unveiling his now-iconic single sequined glove and showing up with Elizabeth Taylor (and no, 25 years later, we still don't understand) as his date. Nowadays, it's almost quaint to watch Michael try to please "the girls in the back." Sure, Michael.

6. MY FAVORITE - Dixie Chicks Make Nice

The Dixie Chicks sang "Not Ready to Make Nice," but the Grammy Awards were certainly ready to make them winners, honoring the trio with five awards in 2007. The Chicks, who ignited controversy in 2004 when lead singer Natalie Maines criticized President Bush on the eve of the Iraq war, won all five of the awards for which they were nominated, including the big three: album of the year (for "Taking the Long Way"), song of the year and record of the year (both for "Not Ready to Make Nice"). Bringing the total Grammys for this talented trio to a staggering 13.

Now some may laugh that this is my favorite Grammy award moment, but there is a reason. The performance. That night those girls took to the stage to put a lid on all of their haters. For the past four years before this they had taken a public relations beating when they used their freedom of speech to criticize our then President Bush. How they responded to this controversy was by taking the high road, sticking to what they know, and putting out what was the Record of the Year. Their performance of their hit "Not Ready To Make Nice", had me standing up cheering on my couch.

If you need another reason, fast forward to minute 2:50 to see a brave brave performance! Way to go Girls!



Can't believe I'm missing this....

Line up..... Pearl Jam, Simon and Garfunkel, Aretha, Van "The Man" Morrison, Lionel Richie, Anita Baker, Neville Brothers, Allman Brothers Band, My Morning Jacket, Widespread Panic among hundreds scheduled to appear at the 41st annual Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans.

It is one of my dreams in life to attend this festival, and it looks as if another year will go by without me being there. I can't complain too much because I will be on the island of St. Croix during this, but its still going to be tough to miss this line up. Shit I would make the trip to see Van, Aretha and Simon and Garfunkel alone not to mention throwing Anita Baker and My Morning Jacket in...insane!

Last year one of my friends made the trip down to this historic event and her stories were priceless. People playing music on the streets, the community feeling, the celebration of jazz. I can not wait for that one year that I too make the trip down. Until then I will have to watch these and think of what it must have been like to be a part of this event.

The Shout Out Louds

Love this band name. Love this music. Love their whole vibe.

The Shout Out Louds are a indie rock band from Stockholm, Sweden. A band whose members have been playing together since they were children have a sound that most bands dream of. They are a mix of Death Cab for Cutie, Bjork, Peter Bjorn and the Cure all mixed together. The album containing this song entitled "Work" is set to drop in late February of 2010.

For now enjoy this song Tonight I Have to Leave It.

I'd Do It All Again....

"I'd Do It All Again" is the lead single from English singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae's second album "The Sea". This song has grown on me slowly. Taking from old melodies of Billie Holiday, this songstress comes with a winner. If you love jazzy, 60s songs, this new single may be your daily song to listen to. If your a fan go pick up her new album, its amazing.

Hard Times Come Again No More...

Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears
While we all sup sorry with the poor
There's a song that will linger forever in our ears
Oh hard times, come again no more

It's the song, the sigh of the weary
Hard times, hard times come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door
Oh hard times, come again no more

While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay
There are frail forms fainting at the door
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say
Oh hard times, come again no more

There's a pale drooping maiden who toils her life away
With a worn heart whose better days are o'er
Though her voice would be merry, it's sighing all the day
Oh hard times, come again no more

It's a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave
It's a wail that is heard upon the shore
It's a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
Oh hard times, come again no more
-Stephen Foster

Jennifer Hudson

To anyone who knows me I am a huge Beatles fan. I really do not enjoy many peoples covers of their songs, and especially hate when phone companies like blackberry or huge mega stores like Target use their songs for their commercials. I really do not think when John Lennon was penning "Revolution" he was thinking about the 7.99 tank tops for sale at Target. Sigh.

Anyways, to that note, I will give respect to those artists that take a Beatles song and really does it justice. There are not many out there with the talent to really sing these songs with meaning but Friday night I stumbled upon another one. While watching the amazing telethon "Hope for Haiti" (to all who have not donated, go to itunes and download the cd performances for about 8 dollars. Great music for a great cause).

So towards the end of the 2 hour show, Jennifer Hudson came out and stole the entire show with her rendition of "Let it Be". Please take the time to watch this video and the amazing vocal power of Jennifers voice. I have adored her since she was booted too early from American Idol. I believe she will endure for decades and decades to be the voice of my generation.

Don't believe me? Make sure you watch the video at the 2:20 mark where her performance really takes off. I can't stop watching it.

Jesse Spanno Moment

Well its official I have lost my head today. After what feels like about 10 hours of sleep over the past three days. Countless number of beers/vodka sprites. Many heated Jets conversations. Talking for two hours with Gov. George Pataki (NY) at the bar. 4 separate plane flights. And many more things that I will refrain from mentioning has left me physically and mentally exhausted today.

Well that would be okay if I didn't have the busiest day of work today. I literally just sat down.

My body is working on straight caffeene and looking to crash on the nearest couch. If I had to sum up how I'm feeling at the moment it would be this.

Song of the Day

Super busy this morning catching up on emails and such from being out in Indy this past weekend. Even without a Jets win I had what probably was one of the funner weekends of my entire life. Who knows when the next time my dad brothers and I will be able to do something like this. We definitely took full advantage and had the time of our lives. So as I catch up on things enjoy this song that I heard on the radio into work this morning. Yet another reason why I love Sirius Radios "Coffee House" Station.

Ain't No Sunshine

I urge everyone to stay home on this rainy night and watch "Relief for Haiti" on basically any major network, and give what you can. Who will be there? Brad Pit, John Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake, Bono, The Edge, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, Mary J. Blige, Christina Agularia, Wyclef Jean, Dave Matthews, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Meryl Streep... and more adding as we speak. Its sure to be a great event, again it starts at 8pm!

Here is a video tribute to Haiti by Selah Sue singing "Ain't No Sunshine". Amazing voice. Amazing cause. Do what you can.

Heading to Indy tomorrow...see y'all next week!

Redemption Song

With all thats going on with the world especially in Haiti I can't help but think how lucky I am to have my family, my friends, my health and my home. Yesterday Oprah had a show reporting all about really the "apocalypse"that is happening over there. And thats what it is, its truly just devastation. If anyone has not given yet, I urge you to support such charities as Docotors without Boarders who lost 3 hospitals over there yet have enough to make literal "tent hospitals" the size of football fields to help people. The Haitian people who barely survived these quakes (yes quakes, a 6.1 aftershock is still an earthquake) are dying from preventable diseases. Diseases like a broken arm which if not treated leads to kidney failure.

They need help, and they can not do it alone. We as a country, as citizens of this world have an obligation to help.

Erich Segal

"Love means never having to say your sorry" -Erich Segal

Its shaping up to be a pretty sad few weeks for the word of entertainment. Now while this man didn't have much to do with music you will soon see why he fits into my blog perfectly. Erich Segal, the Yale University professor whose first novel, "Love Story", became a pop-culture phenomenon, selling more than 20 million copies in three dozen languages and spawning an iconic catchphrase of the 1970s, died Sunday in London. He was 72.

Born and raised in Brooklyn from an early age he had a talent for writing. Growing up for the first six years with his grandparents (because his parents apartment would not allow children...crazy huh?) he often would write and perform plays for them in the living room. His father was adamant of him becoming a Rabbi but Erich knew this wasn't the path for him and put himself through Harvard with duel degrees in literature. While completing his doctorate he became a professor at Yale and his writings just took off. He wrote many off broadway plays would garnered him attention and even got him an agent.

Next he fulfilled a big dream of his of becoming a "Hollywood writer" when he co-wrote the screenplay for the now infamous Yellow Submarine in 1968 based off of Lee Minoff's story. Soon he found himself flying back and orth between Yale and California hobnobbing with the likes of John Lennon.

His next work turned out to be his most famous. He first wrote "Love Story" as a screenplay but was persuaded by his agent to turn it into a novel. It went through 21 hardcover printings in the first 12 months, and the first paperback run of 4.3 million copies was said to be the largest initial print order in publishing history. Again this was the late 1960s.

Love Story revolves around the attraction between Oliver, a Harvard hockey player, and Jenny, a working-class Radcliffe girl who ultimately dies of a mysterious disease. The novel soon was turned into a movie which was a box office hit staring Ryan O'Neil in 1970. This movie struck a cord with critics and audiences alike, who enjoyed its heartfelt sentimental tone. (Now on a personal note if you have not seen this movie and are a fan of such movies as The Notebook go rent this immediately, if you thought you cried at that movie.....this is a whole other ballgame).

After the success of Love Story, Erich returned to teaching at a collegiate level and writing novels. He wrote another best selling novel called The Class (1985) which was based on his own Harvard class while he was in school.

Since then, he chose to move to London to live with his wife and children for the last 25 years. He died from a heart attack on Monday.

Enjoy this montague from Love Story. Frances Lai won an Oscar for his score.

RIP Kate McGarrigle

Kate McGarrigle, the outstanding singer and songwriter whose gentleness was an enduring feature of her folk music for over three decades, lost her longtime battle with cancer, she was 63.

Known for her partnership with her younger sister Anna, they were noteworthy for their melancholy songs and tender harmonies. Although they may have viewed themselves as "accidental" recording artists, it was clear from the start that the pair were unique talents. They were raised in Quebec's Mountains and they were originally introduced to French cabaret songs, folk music and jazzy standards as children, their family very frequently had cozy group sing-along’s around the piano. Kate and Anna honed their own piano skills at the elbows of nuns; later, they would make a career out of performing a fresh variation on the homey, honest music of their youth in folk clubs and on recordings. Becoming unlikely stars in the mid 70s, and despite their infrequent tours (due to raising families), their popularity never wavered.

Recently, Kate's fame has been that of a mother to major stars Rufus and Martha Wainwright, her children with the singer Loudon Wainwright III. Kate took great pride in the success of both Rufus and Martha, regularly joining them both on stage. She accompanied Rufus on piano in his two Judy Garland tribute shows at New York's Carnegie Hall in 2006.

She was diagnosed with clear cell sarcoma in 2007, and founded the Kate McGarrigle Fund cancer charity in 2008. She remained characteristically warm, funny and resolute to the end.

Please enjoy Kate and Anna McGarrigle performance of "Gentle Annie". RIP Anna.

I'm Heading To Indy!!!


Well if this song does not represent me at the moment I'm not really sure what does. I have just booked a plane ticket to Indy on Saturday to go watch my NY Jets (yes my) play in their first AFC Championship game in at least 17 years. Yes I know I most likely need my head examined at this point but the opportunity to go watch this game with my Dad and brothers is truly a one in a lifetime opportunity.

So look for us, freezing, in a sea of Colt fans. Its going to be interesting....Now if only I can relax and actually get some work done.

The Blaire Reinhard Band

Now this is what I call a feel good post. This is a band that I have been following since their conception a few years back. The Blaire Reinhard Band (The BRB) comes right out of...wait what is that...Morristown NJ? Katie isn't that your hometown? Well kind of. I grew up with Blaire and her brother Grey in Morris Plains NJ a small neighborhood of Morristown where the cool kids rode their bikes to Tony's Pizza, remembers the ice cream shop Sprinkles, and sleigh rode down Mt. Way hill. Our families belonged to the same awesome pool, for a while the same church, we both lived up on "the hill" and all went to the best middle school around Borough. It was no surprise to anyone in town that this family had some musical talent. Blair and Grey were grandkids of Doc Severinsen, the former band leader and trumpet player for "The Tonight Show Band ft. Johnny Carson". Yeaaah so you can say that talent wasn't far from their bloodline.

From an early age these two showed off their talent for all things music; whether it was in plays at our church, at school recitals, the school band performances, it was a known fact that this family was definitely talented. This is why it was no surprise to me or anyone in our town when Blaire and her brother started up The BRB. Blaire had some success as a solo artist even releasing her own LP. Yet the magic really started when she joined together with Grey (piano/guitar) her husband Wade (bass/harmonica) and drummer Keith Woodward to form a band. Together these four make some unbelievable music together, lots of blues, jazz and soul music mixed with Blaires absolutely incredible voice and inventive lyrics makes this band one of a kind. They play a lot of local gigs in both Morristown and NYC and have had the opportunity to share the stage with some great performers like Blues Traveler front man John Popper. Their music has also made it onto such network shows as "So You Think You Can Dance", "Six Feet Under" and "Army Wives" to name a few.

I have yet to see them perform yet have heard from many people around my hometown that their shows are the "go to event" in town. And if you don't own it already their debut album is available from their website here (fyi: its really good!)

Its so nice to see people that you know succeed in what they love. Keep it up fellow Borough Beavers! (haha sorry I had to)

Here is their first official video for Gutterbottom Blues:


Nothing much to say about this powerful video, except the world surely does miss this man.

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr Day everyone.

I See You

As I sat there last night watching the Golden Globes (which I may add was a little bit of a disappointment. I don't know if it was the rain that ruined my chance to be catty with the celebrities choice of dresses, maybe it was Ricky Gervais who seemed to hold back a little too much. Or maybe it was the lack of big picture nominees which grabbed our attention this year. Who knows but it all felt a bit off.) ANYWAYS, as always I had seen a good 90% of the movies and was ready to go with my picks for the night. The night was going just as planned, Meryl Streep won, Jeff Bridges won, Sandra Bullock won all great winners.

Then it came to one of my favorite categories, best song. While I was excited to see the nominees, you even had Paul McCartney as a nominee. Who won you ask? Well it was a small singer songwriter named Ryan Bingham with his song "The Weary Kind". While I was happy to see a relatively unknown win this category and make his career right there on the stage. And not to sound like Kanye West, but "while I know that song was really good, the song from Avatar should have definitely won!". And I'm serious. I loved Avatar, I loved almost everything about the 3 hour epic film. Do I think it deserved Best Director? Yes. Do I think it deserved Best Picture? Absolutely not, Hurt Locker did but did it deserve Best Song? HANDS DOWN.

Watch this song and tell me it doesn't remind you of another one of James Cameron epic soundtracks "My Heart Will Go On". Yeah I just said that, epic soundtrack. You can not deny the impact of that song for that movie. Thats what best songs are all about, those few songs that paired with the right movie make for an unbelievable moment.

This is my vote for song of the year! Good luck at the Oscars.

Song of the Day

Just stumbled across this song today out on the internet. I had never heard of her before, but I guess she is a singer coming out of Sweden with the stage name Miss Li. This song "Dancing the Whole Way Home" just seemed to pop with me today. She has a very unique voice, a voice that if probably heard on the street would make me scream and run, but paired with the funky jazz music she plays it fits quite nice. Enjoy this tune and happy Friday!!

Death of a Legend

Teddy Pendergrass, one of the most distinctive R&B singers of the 1970s, died Wednesday in suburban Philadelphia, eight months after surgery for colon cancer. He was 59. The singer who rose to fame in the 1970s had a melodious voice that enthralled music lovers for decades. Pendergrass' voice was raw and gravelly, but not in the way that hurt. It was in a way you wanted to touch, especially if you were one of the legions of screaming female fans who flocked to his shows. Especially during his now famous "ladies only" nights.

The singer was nominated for the coveted Grammy awards no less than 5 times in his life. His solo albums were best sellers but his duets with stalwarts like Whitney Houston and Stephanie Mills also received good reviews from critics and listeners alike. He had a lively nature and despite several adversities in his life he never withdrew into a shell. For example an auto accident in 1982, at peak of his career, left him partially paralyzed but that didn't stop him from performing.

The lovers of old school soulful R&B, like myself, are mourning his loss this week and remembering such hits as "Love TKO", "Your My Latest, Greatest Inspiration" and this one which is probably his most recognizable. This was recorded while he sang lead vocals in the group Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, "If You Don't Know Me By Now". RIP Teddy the world just lost one of the greatest voices. You will be missed.

Top 5 Vidoes of All Time

Well today I have been racking my brain to work on a little project. A project that if done correctly would probably take me a full year to complete, but I expedited that process and got it done this morning. Thats right, I came up with my list for Top Five Music Videos of All Time. And I know what your thinking, "I don't want to see the Thriller video". Well thats fine, because he didn't make the list! Whaaat? Yes thats right there is no MJ on this list, reason being. When Thriller was released I remember watching it on my Dads lap and when he turned into a zombie I started screaming and crying and never could grasp why he had yellow eyes! So while we will be lacking a Thriller we will be adding in no particular order the five videos that I love. Yes I. Thats why this blog is called the "non judgmental blog" you can't judge me, I simply don't care.

Anyways onto the list! If you wonder how I came up with this mighty fine group of videos, I have spent the morning racking my brain for the most memorable videos. Those videos that when you see them bring you back to a time in the past where you remember exactly where you were when watching it. A video that is either so powerful or so well made takes the song to another level. Again these videos are in no particular order:

Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquai

This is perhaps Jamiroquai's best known music video. The video consists mainly of singer Jay Kay, dancing and performing the song in a bright white room with a grey floor. Throughout the video there are several combinations of couches and a chairs, which are the only furniture in the room. The video also earned recognitiion from critics for its special effects. The floor appears to move while the rest of the room stays still allowing for Kay to perform moves not normally seen in music videos. At some points the camera tilts up or down to show the floor or ceiling for a few seconds when it returns to the central position the scene has completely changed. I find this video to be a complete work of art come to life, showing simplicity at its best.

Weapon of Choice by Fat Boy Slim

After a brief Wikipedia venture, I was suprised to find that Christopher Walken actually helped coreograph his dance moves in this Fat Boy Slim video. The whole thing reeks of Gene Kelly, but Walkens expression, paired with a few choice funk-inspired moves make this video anything but ordinary. The one thing that always sticks with me in this video is Walken's depressing return to business-as-usual at the end. The smile he sports during his dance is so unexpected and refreshing that the moment he sinks back into despondency, I can't help but respond with empathy. Its a strangely melancholic ending to such a silly video.

Hurt by Johnny Cash

"You stay the hell away from me, you hear?" Even before American Recordings (released in 1994 by Cash recording in his living room with just his guitar) proved it beyond all doubt. Cash was a man with two careers in parallel: one bringing the poignancy, the other bringing novelty to tunes like "One Piece at at Time". So how better to close his career than by combinging the two: a novelty cover version paired with a video featuring poignancy laid on so thick as to crush your heart through sheer persistence. Cash as Jesus, Cash as the rebel, Cash as the American, Cash as America personified, Cash the husband, Cash the man in black, Cash the guy who sold records in their droves, Cash the lonely, scared, dying old man. It's hard for me to imagine there could have been a better way to close the piano lid on his career.

Once in a Lifetime by The Talking Heads

When it comes to music video performance, David Byrne is something of a nerdy Robert DeNiro, and "Once ins a Lifetime" is his Raging Bull (yes i just said that). He huffs, he puffs, and he generally freaks the fuck out. Byrne is like Jake LaMotta without an opponent, mentally and physically kicking his own ass as if the stress of the modern world had actually made him lose sense of his motor functions. And then comes the chorus, where Byrne surrenders completely, floating on a sea of blue screen and looking unsure as to whether he's reached heaven or is merely stuck in limbo. Music video acting may have existed before "Once in a Lifetime, but it's Byrne that made it noteworthy.

November Rain by Guns and Roses

The final selection onto this list is more of a personal reason as well as it just being a kick ass video. This kept making it onto my list because when I look back into music videos of my past, recreating this video when I was in middle school still sits as one of my favorite memories ever.

In "November Rain" Guns n' Roses manages to keep at least one toe on the ground, but still finds a way to pack a wedding ceremony, a funeral, and at least two Slash 360-degree cliff solos in its nine minute running time. The difference between this monster video and say a "Thriller" or Puff Daddy's "Victory" is that "November Rain" features no additional dialogue or mid-song breaks to augment its running time. This song simply demanded such a large-scale video, which cost the band approximately 1.5 million to make. This video is nothing short of epic, and leaves you with one final question.... What ever happens to the guy who jumps into the wedding cake?

Well that is my list of my favorite videos and I'm sticking to it. I suggest you all make lists of your own, its really a great way to spend an afternoon watching old videos remember old memories. What are your five?
