Rise of Music Streaming Service – Spotify

m19Over the past decade we have seen music streaming services in the industry rise tremendously. The idea of music streaming services is to bring you millions of songs, of all genres, for whatever situation you land yourself in. Streaming services have forced big players like iTunes to follow in their path or unfortunately get left behind. Streaming websites argue they are contributing positively to the industry with the underlying fact that music seems to be growing again. But like anything else in this world where there is ups, unfortunately, there must be downs and for streaming websites this has certainly been the case, especially over the last couple of year.

Music streaming sites in general all operate in similar ways. The majority allows consumers to use their service for free, with the downside of having to listen to advertising in between songs, but also have a paid version of the service, where you pay a set price per month or year, and draw in little to no interruption. Streaming services, in short, have banks of music from a wide range of artists and genres where

Ten Songs That Make the Perfect Soundtrack For Your Retirement

m18I recently joined the world of retired folks, and I can definitely say that it beats working. Obviously I cannot speak for everyone, but having to rise at 5:00 every morning to face six classes of thirty high school students really took its toll.

Retirement has certainly been a welcome change after thirty years as an English teacher. The free time has allowed me to indulge in one of my favorite obsessions, which is music.

During my zealous listening over the past few months, I have experienced a new appreciation for songs that speak directly to retirees. Here are ten of those songs that should be appreciated by all those who have retired from a long career of working.

“Watching the Wheels” by John Lennon

The genius behind the best songs of The Beatles reflects on his retirement from the music world on this solo track from the Double Fantasy album, which ironically marked a return to the business shortly before he was assassinated.

“Idle By” by Travis Bretzer

The indie artist is too young to fully appreciate the beautiful idleness of retirement, but his gorgeous song from Waxing Romantic

Why I Love Rev Michael Bernard Beckwith

m17It was a cold day in Los Angeles, if you can believe that… My life in L.A. had been rough and I was in a place where life wasn’t so great. I had been told about a spiritual center that could get me on the right path. I was willing to try anything. With my hair in tiny braids all over my head and my rock n roll outfit, I made my way to Agape (now known as Agape International Spiritual Center) in Santa Monica. I wasn’t sure what I would find but I had been told about the center more than once. As I made my way through the chilly streets, I had a feeling inside. This was a feeling that I was on the right track. Was it guidance? Was it my guardian angel? As a musician, I had experienced altered realities but I wasn’t really sure of any of it. Arriving in the moderately sized building, I noticed right away that this was a very diverse community. Phew… being raised in Kentucky where we all had blonde hair and blue eyes

Ten Title Tracks That Do Not Live Up To the Rest of the Songs On The Album

m16David Bowie and Glenn Frey, who both passed away in January, had more in common than just musical talent. Based on the success of their best-selling albums, they also had a knack for making titles for hit songs.

Each of the albums made by Frey’s band, the Eagles, was titled after the song that became its biggest hit. In 1975 they made Desperado, which charted as a single and an album. They had a similar fate with its follow up, One of These Nights. Their biggest album Hotel California came next, spawning the classic hit with the same name. The band’s last album before a ten year hiatus, The Long Run, had the same pattern.

Bowie experienced a similar trend with his albums. Starting with Space Oddity back in the early seventies, the title tracks always became the best hits from the albums. Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars charted both as an LP and an individual song, as was the case with Young Americans and Let’s Dance.

The two late rockers are certainly not the only ones whose title songs are the best from their

10 Relaxing Rock Songs

m14Panic stricken? Dead tired? Extremely anxious? Having difficulty sleeping? Head is swimming? No peace inside? Want an out? Listen to music!

Music is considered to be an essential measure for relaxation. Many therapists use music as treatment. Mostly classical music is the prescribed medicine, but that doesn’t need to be a necessity.

Below are 10 songs by rock bands and artists which have an intensely soothing effect on the nerves and will make you feel at peace.

1. Imagine – John Lennon

Much doesn’t need to be said about what this song does to the listener. Live in Utopia for a while, and you’ll get what is desired by all (and what John philosophized) – peace!

2. Perfect Day – Lou Reed

A lazy, melodious track. It may have been written about heroin, but that doesn’t mean it cannot work wonders for the sane mind. When facing problems or overwhelmed, just slow down. Give it some time and let it go. Escape for a while!

3. Big D’s Touch – Buckethead

One of the most relaxing tunes to come out of Buckethead’s fingers is this instrumental. Let it touch you. It will

Ten Classic Hits About Criminals On the Run

m13The revival of vinyl has not only allowed me to enjoy hearing some modern bands on record, but it has also given me the chance to revisit some of the albums I had not heard in several decades. Some of these I had overlooked in my youth, only to now find the appealing in middle age.

One example is a release by Gary Wright, who reached as high as number two on the singles chart back in the mid seventies. The album is Dream Weaver, which spawned singles like “Love Is Alive” and the title track.

While I had heard those two tracks occasionally on the local oldies station, several other tunes struck me when I spun it on the record player recently. I was particularly impressed by a song called “Can’t Find the Judge.”

The song, a bluesy endeavor unlike most of the synthesized based album, is unusual in its context. It is the pleading of a man to find the judge who sent his woman to prison.

Apparently she had committed a violent crime somehow in defense of the man singing the song. Before the time

Be True to Music and It Will Be True to You Forever

m12Music is a form of healing, a form of passion that comes from within. It is something which is beyond words and cannot be simply expressed. For someone who is away and does not understand music, it is difficult to understand the emotions that one goes through while listening to or playing it. But, there is more power in music than one can imagine. It has the ability to uplift you, ability to bring you down, it has the power to mold you for good as well as for bad and much more.

Now, for people who are musicians or aspire to be one, you should know that your passions are going to get you through. No matter what, the only thing that you need to stand by is the instrument that you love more than your life and it will pay you back.

What comes to your mind when you see the word MAGIC? For some, it is hypothetical while for some it is a strong message that something away from the ordinary is out there. However, both these approaches want you to work hard

Sing to the Tune of 10 Flowers

m11You love humming through the melody of top hits from various music genres. You can’t even contain yourself and start dancing with each beat. A song serenades a universal language. Similarly, flowers also speak to every soul. Both are very much alike in appeasing the human heart.

It is no wonder that composers incorporate “flowers” in their lyrics. Blossoms add love to every song. Most human beings find joy and satisfaction in singing. In this fast paced world, everybody wants a bit of euphoria in their lives.

Here are 10 latest songs that you can carry a tune whenever you feel like being one with nature, especially with flowers.

When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars

Lyric: Too young, too dumb to realize that I should’ve bought you flowers and held your hand.

Bruno Mars made a huge hit with this song as it pierces through the heart of every man. It speaks on behalf of those who took their loved ones for granted. The flowers here symbolize the guy’s regret for recognizing his girl’s worth when it’s already too late.

Clean by Taylor Swift

Lyric: The drought was the

Music Composition Software How to Choose the Best Software for Your Needs

Perhaps you’re a music composer who wants to move into digital music making or maybe you’re just beginning your music composition journey. Whatever your goals, this article will be of interest to you.

Notation Programs VS DAWs

Notation programs are software used to create sheet music. You would need to know how to read and write music to use it.

What Should Matter In A Karaoke Machine

m9Karaoke machines can make family events and get-togethers very entertaining because they give family members or friends a chance to sing to their favorite tunes.

These Lyrics Help Celebrate Birthday 75 For Bob Dylan

m8Had Bob Dylan chosen the interstate that runs from Michigan to Florida for the title of his breakthrough rock album, we would be listening to Highway 75 Revisited. Granted, it does not have near the ring to it that Highway 61 does, and it would be more difficult to find rhyming words for five than it was for one.

Nevertheless, think how significant that title would be right now, since Dylan is celebrating birthday number 75. More important, he is now well passed the half century mark of writing songs.

Dylan, whose diamond birthday was on May 24, 2016, has written an estimated ten thousand songs. That total includes classics such as “Like a Rolling Stone”, “Tangled Up In Blue” and “Blowin’ In the Wind.”

Those fifty-plus years of songs are comprised of over a million words, and even quite a few numbers. Some of his best songs even have numbers in their titles, tunes like “Fourth Time Around”, “Positively Fourth Street” and “Rainy Day Women #12 and 35 (Everybody Must Get Stoned).”

Unfortunately for this occasion, Dylan has never used the number 75 in any of his

Los Angeles and Inspirational Musicians

m7In a way, you could say I was born a renaissance woman… an artist who enjoys writing poetry, singing, writing songs, painting and dancing. And really, inspirational music is the thing that moves me to the ultimate joy.

What I love about inspirational music is that it moves the listener out of their sometimes grim state of mind and into ecstasy… if it’s on point. In Los Angeles, I have found many wonderful centers for spiritual living that invite freedom and transformation into one’s life. Along with the centers are a wonderful group of inspirational musicians and singers. These are people like myself who have fallen onto a spiritual path of joy through music. Maybe they started out in dark empty bars, playing music to 3 people. Or maybe they went to Musician’s Institute and wanted a record deal that would somehow magically make their lives better. Then, they started doing spiritual work and their songs changed. There are so many possibilities about how, when and where musicians begin doing inspirational tunes.

When I think about all of the different types of singers doing inspirational work,

Rockstars, Singer/Songwriters and Inspirational Music

m6I remember going to a U2 concert in Southern France many years ago. Somehow I worked my way up towards the front of the muddy mosh pit. I could almost see Bono’s sweat drip off of his amazing face. WOW! The tour was ‘The Joshua Tree’ album. This was the beginning of my love for rockstars. I would then fall for Robert Smith of ‘The Cure’. Songs like ‘Pictures of You’ from ‘Disintegration’ pulled me into a beautiful reverie and I thus became an official poet.

Kate Bush soon crept into my favorite box. Although she is/was not really a rocker, she was this incredible artist who shook me to the core. From ‘The Dreaming’ to ‘The Sensual World’, I was completely hooked. Her song ‘Lily’ intrigued me in terms of the seeming witchcraft she used. ‘You’re the One’ was so beautiful as many of her songs. I think I related to the crazy love she felt for her beloved. After listening to her for a few years, I begin singing. But, I would only sing when I was alone, I never dreamed of singing

Ten Song Titles Consisting of Just One Word With Five Syllables

m5Earlier this week on an episode of Jeopardy, I was intrigued by one of the unusual categories introduced by host Alex Trebek. The answers had to consist of words with exactly five syllables, two of which I got the correct questions.

Two of the five syllable words I missed were “Abolitionists” and “insurmountable”, two that I should have gotten. Long after the game had ended and the classic Final Jeopardy theme song had faded out, I was still trying to think of relatively common words that had five syllables.

My attention turned, as it often does, to popular music. Here are ten one-word song titles that fit the Jeopardy category of Five Syllable Words.

“Opportunity” by Elvis Costello

This tune, like most of the others on the Nick Lowe produced Get Happy album, is rife with lines such as “Her bedroom eyes were like a button she was pushing.”

“Anticipation” by Carly Simon

Predating the smash hit “You’re So Vain” by a few years, this title track is the highlight of the diva’s second album.

“Imagination” by Earth, Wind and Fire

The soul band had a bunch of hits besides this one,

Techno Artists & Music

m4Techno Music was created in Detroit, Michigan in the mid 1980s. It has an emphasis on rhythm while utilizing the best of advancements in music technology and music production. Techno is sometimes an instrumental genre and is usually discovered via DJ mixes, club nights and festivals. Some ingredients used are drum machines such as TR-808, TR-909, synthesizers, field recordings and sampling.

The main styles I would say that are the biggest influence on my music are as follows:

Detroit Techno

Detroit Techno is a subdivision of the techno genre which generally includes some of the earliest techno productions from Detroit. Detroit techno had its largest audience in the Atlantic. Some of the most common techno music artists include Underground Resistance, Mike Banks, Blake Baxter, Kevin Saunderson, Jeff Mills, Derrick May, Eddie Fowlkes and Juan Atkins. Some of these artists used whatever technology they had in their reach and initiated music with epic synth sounds and engaging driving grooves. I could never list a top ten of tracks from this genre as it changes all the time, but a personal favourite label was always the Red Planet series.

Amplifier Specifications You Should Consider When Buying

m3If you are looking to increase stereo system signal power, then an amplifier is what you need. The same goes for a musical instrument, sound playing device, or a home theater. Amplifiers are designed to make sound louder and more powerful without losing the quality. It helps to get a little knowledge on amplifiers before purchasing to increase your chances of landing the most suitable one. You can use basic tips and research so that you avoid buying mistakes when selecting it.

When buying an amplifier, it is really not enough to listen to sound input alone; the specification sheet should be evaluated if you want to end up with a good quality and reliable amp for that matter. Even when going through amp reviews, these are the specifications that you should look out for to help your decision making process.

Sound quality – You might be looking for more power, but sound quality should definitely be prioritized. This is because it directly results in loudness that is perceived. Consider the total harmonic distortion when looking at the amplifier sound quality and also signal to noise

7 Benefits of Learning the Piano

m2If you’re looking for a way to improve your life other than exercise or nutrition, you should consider playing a musical instrument as the piano. Learning piano has a lot of benefits, both physical and mental:

It improves academic skills:

Learning to play piano can increase your cognitive development. Music highly stimulates the brain. By understanding scales, rhythm, and beat, children are learning to recognize patterns, create fractions, and how to divide, for example.

It broadens vocabulary:

Children who have music in their academic curriculum have a far better verbal sequencing and vocabulary than children who didn’t.

It reduces stress:

When you’re learning to play piano you need to be focused both on the music and on the technique, you’ll be able to get away from your daily stress.

It gives you a hand-eye co-ordination:

When you’re taking piano classes, you’ll be taught on how you have to read while you play. And this trains your hands and eyes to work together and can be very handy in the future in terms of improving your productivity and your reaction time.

Also, since you use both hands and they play independently, you’re stimulating different

How to Quickly and Easily Learn Piano for Beginners

m1If you’re learning to play the piano, or if already took some piano classes, there are some tips that may help you. Whenever you feel a little discouraged because you’re not evolving fast enough, or if you want to gain more confidence when you’re playing, make sure to check the following list:

Take a break:

When you decided you wanted to learn how to play a piano, you never thought it could be so hard. It’s not hard; you just need a break.

You need to understand that learning the piano takes a lot of practice and a lot of dedication. And this is how a break may just well be what you need. Just take a couple of hours or even a day away from your piano. You’ll notice that it will help you release all your frustration and stress, and when you go back to play again, you’ll feel much more refreshed and confident.

Play music you like:

One of the things that makes most people drop their piano classes is that they just don’t like the music they’re playing. You enjoy playing the piano; you just
