What Went Wrong?

Barefoot Justine

SimonGarfunkelI’ve had this problem, one that started early into adulthood. The problem is that there is music I love that I cannot bear. Be it in the background at a supermarket, on the radio, with friends, on my own, this music always brings me to tears. Not tears due to the content, it’s something else, something that is so deep in me I never could quite pinpoint it. It’s not a feeling I have about anything else, no matter how much I love, have loved, or how terribly important it has been in my life. It’s Simon and Garfunkel. I have not even owned any of their albums on CD, as the music they made began stirring me to tears way back in the days of vinyl. Why?

I missed the sixties, they were before my time, but I did not miss the aftermath, the music was still in the…

Reelin’ in the Years – 1969

It's 1969 and I'm seven years old. Old enough to understand the hippie movement and even emulate the walk. (I remember walking down the street with a certain "cool" gait and my 20-something neighbor saying to his friends, "He's already got the walk!" Canada is coming of age, musically speaking. Groups like The Guess Who... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1968

It's 1968 and I'm 6 years old. This time around I checked the American and Canadian charts to decide on my fav pop radio song for '68. I don't even know if it really is my fav song. But I thought I would highlight The Beatles' "Hello Goodbye" as a fantastic example of a finely... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1967

It's 1967 and I'm five years old. I definitely remember hearing Sgt. Pepper's on vinyl. The song that first caught my imagination was "Lucy in the Sky." That guitar riff at the beginning has been copied and morphed by so many other bands. They probably changed it just enough to avoid a lawsuit. I learned... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1966

Boy oh boy. There are so many good tunes for the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 singles of 1966 that I really had to scratch my head over choosing just one. I am now four years old and remembering more songs as I grow older. We had the Monkees 33.3 record with "Last Train to Clarksville."... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1965

It's 1965 and I'm three years old. The British Invasion was in full swing by '65. The Stones hit the charts with "Satisfaction" at #3. That is a great song with insightful lyrics and an easy riff that every child guitarist, including myself, played endlessly. "Downtown," on the other hand, was a tune so popular...

Reelin’ in the Years – 1963

Continuing on with my "most representative" tune of the year since I was born, 1963 sees a change in pop music. Production is becoming a bit more complex and calculated. This #1 top single is a good example of carefully crafted production. There are many good tunes in the top 100 for this year. It... Continue Reading →

Take Five

Further to my last post, here's a pin I pinned at Pinterest last night. I was mesmerized by the sax player, especially. He seems to go into a trance during part of his solo... eyes sort of looking into his mind, where he's visualizing each note. That's how I imagined it, anyhow. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/565412928199144713/

? and the Mysterians

This is just too good. I was taking a break from mixing/mastering my tune and flipped on the JukeBox Oldies music channel. A group called "? and the Mysterians" came on. Formed in 1962, the year I was born! This was their big hit... not the one I heard on TV, but a great video..... Continue Reading →
