Gotye has Got ya

our favorite Vegemite strikes again, the brilliant songwriter from Australia has an infectious originality that happens once in a generation and now that he is signed to a major label, his rise has been guaranteed, and if you've never heard of him you owe it to your ears to look him up

enjoy the short song and the awesome video, not only is the music very Peter Gabriel(ish) but also the video

Please Engage Responsibly

Hello everyone

I'd like to make a few things clear.

the sole purpose of any blog is to engage an audience, and since i know that a few hundred people actually (amazingly) read my rants and raves i'd like to ask you to get involved in the blog and make comments, comment on the music, make a political statement or even a medical statement, whatever you like but write something.

it can be a word, a sentence or a whole essay, the only moderation i do in the blog is against profanity or obscenity everything else is fine.

you can comment here (preferably) or Facebook or Google+ or better yet link to my blog and write something in your own blog (if you blog) and i'll get engaged with your blog.



Thank you

Eurovision 2012 in Baku

Although Eurovision 2012 is still a few months away, it's a habit of mine to pick my favorites for the show and i like to start off early with this fantastic song "The Game Is Over" from with Polina Gagarina

The song still hasn't made it past the Russian finals, but i'm pretty confident it will (well keeping fingers crossed)

Worth mentioning is that even though Polina is quite beautiful and talented, the genius behind the song is none other than world renowned Konsantin Meladze, who along with brother Valery have completely revamped the Russian music scene with hit after hit, year after year since around 2000

I like Eurovision much more than all the other (supposed) music contests out there and can't stand American Idol (or it's international brethren) although American Idol participants are quite talented, for me it's like judging a painting by the quality of the frame

what do you think of Idol and other talent shows?

Enjoy the song

Start Over Again (feat. Nicky Shane)

It's been a little while since i recorded a song (it's all the singers fault) but i gave a preview of this one a while ago so you all must have heard it by now, and now it's available on iTunes so you can buy it, and listen as much as you like. Later
