Some days I listen to the radio, others I listen to my iPod.  I’m sure you do the same thing.
A few days ago, I enjoyed the mix as I got off the DC Metro and walked through the streets of Chinatown.
[Confession – I used to be a Bar Mitzvah DJ, so I’ve got a weird [...]

Song of the Day: "More Than Words"

Tags: , favorite song, guitar, love song, more than words,

How do you properly honor one of your favorite songs?  I’ll do my best here.
“More Than Words” by Extreme is a soupy love song, admittedly.  It was a stark contrast from EVERY OTHER SONG Extreme did.  But it was their biggest hit.  When it came out in 1991, I wasn’t such a big fan…girls still [...]

Favorite Dave Matthews Band Songs

Tags: dave matthews band,

In honor of the new Dave Matthews Band CD that everyone’s Buzzing about this week, below are my top 5 DMB songs.  I definitely prefer “classic” DMB over the newer stuff.  I think “Under the Table and Dreaming” has their best songs, but “Upon These Crowded Streets” is their best album, start to finish.  I [...]

Song of the Day – Freak on a Leash (Korn f/Amy Lee)

Tags: acoustic, amy lee, korn, mtv, unplugged

Today’s song of the day comes to us from MTV UnPlugged – Korn!  The entire album is fantastic, and I highly recommend it.  One of my favorite cuts is “Freak on a Leash,” one of the band’s most famous songs.  Their redone version, as you’ll hear below, is haunting and beautiful…but they hit the jackpot [...]

Song of the Day – Boyce Avenue's "Umbrella"

Tags: Boyce Avenue, Rihanna, Umbrella

About a year ago, I stumbled upon a rising band called Boyce Avenue.  Based out of Florida, the three Manzano brothers (frontman Alejandro, guitarist Fabian and bassist/percussionist Daniel)  became an iTunes sensation with their acoustic covers of popular songs.
They’ve recorded their takes on everyone from U2 to Justin Timberlake, but their version of “Umbrella,” made [...]

Song of the Day – "Just Close Your Eyes"

Tags: , WWE,

Before Christian left WWE several years ago for a run with TNA, he had perhaps the sweetest theme song in quite some time, “Just Close Your Eyes” by a small indie band called Waterproof Blonde. Haunting, catchy, just a great, great song.
However, as previously mentioned, Christian left WWE for about 3 years.
When he returned, [...]

Song of the Day – Kings of Leon "Use Somebody"

I first came across the Kings of Leon in 2003 or 2004 when we played several of their songs on WICB-FM in Ithaca (congrats on the college radio station of the year award!)
Since then, they have fine-tuned their act.  Marisa (my fiance) took me to see them at the famed 9:30 Club last year and they [...]

Morning Buzz – Reimold's Walk-Off

I know I wrote about my beloved Baltimore Orioles yesterday, but I am definitely still buzzing about rookie outfielder Nolan Reimold’s game-winning walk-off 3-run homer in the 11th inning.
Check it out:
Read more about the improbable comeback capped by the young outfielder from the two most entertaining baseball writers I know, Peter Schmuck and Roch Kubatko.
