Day 1: First Blog Ever! The Beatles, Linkin Park, Elton John

Day 1:   Music has affected my life daily.   My IPOD has close to 20,000 songs on it!   I've been to almost 200 concerts.   I've had friends in bands, the music industry, and love hearing new music or finding "hidden treasures" in the past.    Today, I'm starting a daily blog of some favorites.

SUNDAY:           All-time Favorites
MONDAY:         Hard Rock/Metal Monday
TUESDAY:         New Music (just released)
WEDNESDAY:   R&B/Hip Hop/Soul/Rap
THURSDAY:       Rock/Alternative
FRIDAY:             Variety
SATURDAY:       Country

All-time Favorites:

"REVOLUTION"                     THE BEATLES


My favorite Beatles LP was the White Album.   An amazing collection of  rock, country, punk, humor, blues, pop music all on 2 magnificent albums.     There are 2 versions of Revolution, a slowed down version on the White Album and the harder rock version that I'm sharing here.     The Beatles changed music and the world forever and it's a great place to start my blog!

"IN THE END"                  LINKIN PARK

I've seen Linkin Park in concert more than anything other artist.  Music mashups are incredible and Linkin Park's mix of Mike's hip hop style with the blistering vocals of Chester is a perfect blend.  When Linkin Park released this '02 they were touring as part of OZZFest.  Many thought they were just another new Rap-Metal band that would fade away like Limp Bizkit.  Ten years later, they're still creating great music.   "In The End" is my cure for any bad day. 

"YOUR SONG 2002"                    ELTON JOHN

The first 45 I ever owned was "Your Song" by Elton John.   A brilliant song written by Bernie Taupin that got a makeover in 2002 for Tsunami Relief.    This new version features opera singer, Alessandro Safina, and a children's choir that amplifies the emotions.    This is a song that stands the test of time and if you've never heard this version, it deserves a listen!
