Reelin’ in the Years – 1999

It's 1999 and I'm having the same problem I had with 1998. I don't connect with most of the pop charts this year. But I respect Cher for coming back with "I believe." She was big in the 70s TV show Sonny and Cher. To resurface with the foresight of where pop would be going...... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1995

1995 was a wonderful year for music. So many classic albums and even the singles charts are looking more promising. I'm 33 years old and buying more pop than I have for decades. And I am feeling a bit of a rebirth - finding my groove again - after going deep into Gregorian chants and... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1993

It's 1993 and I'm 31 years old. Looking at the charts I almost gave up on posting a favorite song for this year, the music is so lackluster. There are a lot of okay songs from older acts on the way out and from promising younger artists not fully matured. I don't know if this... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1984

It's 1984 and I'm 22 years old. 1984 was a slightly strange year because of George Orwell's literary masterpiece by the same name. Before 1984 the year was often mentioned as an ominous warning about how we did not want the future to go. David Bowie had released the haunting song "1984" back in 1974.... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1975

It's 1975 and I'm a whopping 13 years old. A young teen and everything is changing. New school. New emotions. New interests. Looking over the charts for this year I'm torn between David Bowie's "Fame" and Van McCoy's "The Hustle." I admire Bowie. To me, he's like the Sibelius of pop music. If you don't...

Reelin’ in the Years – 1972

It's 1972 and I've completed ten full solar orbits on spaceship Earth. I just realized that I overlooked David Bowie's influential song "Space Oddity" for 1969. When I was seven in '69, "Space Oddity" was too far out for me. I didn't discover that until high school. "Rocket Man" (1972) by Elton John is another... Continue Reading →

The late, great David Bowie’s “‘Tis a Pity She Was a Whore”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zF2tsBJnpk Poor David Bowie. I think of him often. Anyone who rises that high and then slowly burns out - artistically, I mean - well, it must be hard. Classical composers generally get better with age. But it aint necessarily so with pop stars. I guess pop music is all wrapped up in the hopes,... Continue Reading →

Elton John – The Diving Board full album on YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3SPwwCTiBlstjGAZkmTwQojHGTrLblSL I actually heard this through my public library but just discovered it's on YouTube. Elton was a pop phenomenon when I was the ripe young age where pop music meant everything. I was pretty "into" some of his tunes. My aunt is an accomplished pianist (finishing second in a piano competition to none other... Continue Reading →

Alpha Omega

https://soundcloud.com/earthpages/alpha-omega/ When David Bowie's last lp Blackstar came out, I remember thinking that I'd get around to listening to it. After a couple of days I thought, Oh, I really should give it a listen. After all, Bowie has been one of my favs since my childhood and early teens. His music resonated through many...
