Brothers Gibb: A Bee Gees Top Ten!
Not too long ago, I was mesmerized by the music documentary “Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart”. This film tells the story of the Brothers Gibb, also known as The Bee Gees. I’ve been a fan of the Bee Gees since I can remember. And now I have my Bee Gees Top Ten list!
My Elvis Top Ten!
I could not think of a better top ten to end the year with than an Elvis Presley Top Ten! I’ve been an Elvis fan since the first time I heard “That’s All Right”. Elvis had it all from a big, generous heart to a big, golden voice.
A haiku written back in October 2020 in memory of Tom Petty and the release of his album Wildflowers & All the Rest, which includes music left off the original album back in 1994. I did not think Wildflowers could get any better. I was wrong.
Haiku #116 (RIP EVH)
We lost Eddie Van Halen on October 6, 2020 and, truth be told, I am still processing his death. I have been Van Halen fan since I was in the ninth grade. He was a guitar virtuoso and he literally changed the way rock guitar was played.
Haiku #102 (Switchin’to Glide)
Sometimes Tuesdays need an attitude adjustment! Take The Kings advice and switch to glide!
A Rainy Top Twenty!
It has been a very rainy summer in Misawa, Japan.
Queen +Who? A Bohemian Top Ten!
Surfing and searching for something new to watch due to just falling in a big “show hole” after completing a couple of good series on Netflix, I found a new documentary on Queen.
A Pretenders Top Ten!
Don’t pretend to not notice my Pretenders Top Ten songs!
Musical Crushes = Powerhouse Women of Rock!
This Top Ten is dedicated to all those “bad girls out there that play that rock-n-roll” and dominate our ears, hearts, and prepubescent crushes!
