Leppard Mania

The British music invasion was a huge phenomenon of the 1960’s and 70’s. It all started with the Beatles, but they were quickly followed by acts like the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. It seemed like every day there was a new mega rock band coming out of Britain. This didn’t stop in the […]

The 1990s were an interesting time, filled with the arrival of many types of music and a unique expression of individuality. When talking about some of the best songs of the time, well frankly it’s not that simple to narrow down to one comprehensive list. There are so many factors that go into such […]

Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung”

By |January 16th, 2015|All, Hard Rock, Pop, Rock|0 Comments|

A cassette which originally only spawned the single, “Hymn 49,” Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung” has since arguably become their best known work, making them fixtures of radio with the two most recognizable songs, “Aqualung” and “Locomotive Breath,” to this day being played on every classic rock radio station in the nation. I have listened to […]

Best Band of the 70s?

By |March 22nd, 2014|All, Best Ever, Pop, The 70s|1 Comment|

The decade, 1970 – 1979, was a time of musical maturity. The newborn of the 60’s came into their own! Super-Stars appeared. But what band or vocalist or genre was considered the best of this decade? And how does one go about determining who the ‘best’ is?? Cassette sales? ABSOLUTELY! A tape that goes […]

Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon

By |March 6th, 2014|1973, All, Best Ever, Pop, Rock, The 70s|1 Comment|

This cassette, which if you haven’t heard it, you must not like music from the 1970’s, spent 741 weeks on Billboard’s charts from 1973 to 1988. If you have listened, but the cassette means nothing to you, then Pink Floyd (or maybe all of progressive rock) is not for you.

If, like me, you find […]

Queen: My Favorite Role Model

By |March 4th, 2014|All, Pop, The 70s|2 Comments|

Here’s some background on me: I was born in 1989, and I am the younger of two daughters to a music, car, computer, and movie nerd who knows far too much trivia about most things.  My father has taught me everything I know about all four of those things, especially music.  So let me […]

No one can argue about the versatility and evolution of hip hop music.  It does not matter if you are an avid fan, occasional listener or even a hater of it.  The sound and the faces of the genre are constantly changing.  Hip hop has seen its humble beginnings expand well beyond its confining […]

The Smiths: Mathematically Rating Their Cassettes

By |February 24th, 2014|1986, All, Alternative, Best Ever, Pop, The 80s|1 Comment|

So far we reviewed and ranked 64 of the Smith’s songs.  Now we use that information to assess their cassettes. So, what did the math tell us?

Not surprisingly, “Strangeways, here we come” is their worst offering.  It has the lowest average at 6.6 but perhaps even more telling, only 20% of its songs […]

David Bowie: The Rise And Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972)

Now this is one of those albums you can never get enough of. It is one of those cassettes you find among your old man’s music, and steal it immediately, and hide it so that no one can take it away from you. It is excellent, conceptual and one of Bowie’s best works. It […]

THE JETS: MAGIC (1987)

By |February 1st, 2014|1987, All, Best Ever, Pop, R & B, The 80s|0 Comments|

I am sentimental and nostalgic.  I had just moved recently and those two qualities never stood out more as they did when I actually started packing things up.  I found things that I have kept since childhood that have followed me from my parents’ home, my first place, my first home as a homeowner, […]
