29 Apr 2009, 09:29 by zephirnlI made a mash-up of Chapel Of Love and Lollipop. Although the version of 'Chapel' I used is attributed to The Shirelles, last.fm only has The Dixie Cups' version streamable. Oh yeah, all the beats are by Ursula 1000, I used Lollipop (Ursula 1000 Remix) and not the original acapella version...
Read more and listen here.
Any comments are welcome, as it's been a while since I last did this kind of thing.
21 Jan 2009, 03:25 by SI_FailedHere’s a tape that’s not powerpop. Featuring Motown, (Northen) Soul, 60s Girl Groups and Beat Music as well as other miscellaneous genres by modern groups influenced by them. (No Supremes or Diana Ross though, sorrey) I’m a big fan of the 60s divas – Lesley Gore, Helen Shapiro, Evie Sands and Ronnie Spector. I’ve picked more than a few songs written by Ellie Greenwich, it’s pretty hard to find a song that wasn’t written by her. The new stuff is pretty diverse some how Fucked Up do soul songs too... that gives you some idea of the influence.
There was a ton of stuff from the modern era that I wanted to fit on the b-side but just couldn’t for the length of 45mins. Sahara Hotnights do a great cover of In Private (Dusty Springfield). Heaps of great modern soul beat bands like The Booze, Soda Pop Kids, Nobunny. Lots of covers from new and old groups. I’m going to have to post an outtakes of these songs so stay tuned for that one.
5 Oct 2008, 23:26 by MrModernRockSo, as many of you know by now I'm taking a History of Rock course for one of my electives. Its hard to believe a class covering the history of rock is worth 3 credits.
Anyway, I would like to think I know something about the history and progression of rock. Building upon the blues and R&B basis, throwing in the poor-white-boy-country to form rockabilly and then really taking off from there. Just by listening to things, even in chronological order, its hard to really imagine how influential an artist is on another or how important an artist is to a single genre without some extra, third-party knowledge being thrown in. Whether its a book (this is the book for our course), a course, or a combination of the two. Sure, its easy to hear just how good an artist was back in the day and with some exceptions (ie: Bo Diddley Beat) it takes more than simply listening to an artist to develop a sense of influence surrounding them.
In contrast whites droned out Protestant hymns like the braying of asses in one steady beat. …

27 Jan 2008, 18:24 by BadgerJohn31The description and playlist below are from the weekly radio show (A Brief History Of…) that my friend and I host on WSUM 91.7fm Madison. We selected songs we felt were either historically important or just representative of each specific topic. Please comment if you feel we missed something or just to give your opinion. Remember, however, that we do this show in an hour (about 50 minutes of music). Track length is a major factor in our decisions (shorter is usually better). Thanks!
Rock and roll’s first crisis occurred in February 3, 1959, when Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper died in a plain crash in what has been called “the day the music died.” A Brief History of…The Day the Music Died explains how the loss of those rising stars, Elvis Presley’s military hiatus from 1958 to 1960, Little Richard's decision to preach instead of sing, and declining interest in doo-wop left the nation wondering if rock and roll had just been a fad. …

10 Oct 2007, 20:47 by victoriathunderAunque hablara las lenguas de los hombres y de los ángeles, si no tengo amor, soy como bronce que suena o címbalo que retiñe.
Aunque tuviera el don de profecía, y conociera todos los misterios y toda la ciencia; aunque tuviera plenitud de fe como para trasladar montañas, si no tengo amor, nada soy.
Aunque repartiera todos mis bienes, y entregara mi cuerpo a las llamas, si no tengo amor, nada me aprovecha.
El amor es paciente, es servicial;el amor no es envidioso, no es jactancioso, no se engríe;
es decoroso; no busca su interés; no se irrita; no toma
en cuenta el mal;
no se alegra de la injusticia; se alegra con la verdad.
Todo lo excusa. Todo lo cree. Todo lo espera. Todo losoporta.
El amor no acaba nunca. Desaparecerán las profecías. Cesarán las lenguas. Desaparecerá la ciencia.
Porque parcial es nuestra ciencia y parcial nuestra profecía.
Cuando vendrá lo perfecto, desaparecerá lo parcial.
Cuando yo era niño, hablaba como niño, pensaba como niño, razonaba como niño. Al hacerme hombre, dejé todas las cosas de niño.
