Radio DJs are the worst

With the increasing popularity of satellite radio, podcasts, and easy-to-access digital music, it’s becoming more and more apparent that FM radio is a dying medium. I’m ashamed to say that I still listen to the radio on occasion in my car, and usually the radio is on in the background in my office all day…

Don’t go chasin’ The Other Guys

Here at Songspeak, we strive to keep our massive fanbase updated with the most current pop culture news and happenings. So it’s no coincidence that this post is about a movie that came out over a month ago referencing a group that existed mainly in the 90’s. Last night, I found myself with the opportunity…

Bring it on down to Basketville

This morning on the way to work, I passed a billboard that I’ve probably passed countless times before. For some reason, I never really noticed it like I did today. It was for Basketville in Putney, Vermont. And all I could think of is that right out front, Justin Timberlake is dressed up in a…

A boombox is not a toy

Imagine my joy when SNL featured a Digital Short this past weekend of my favorite track off the Lonely Island CD, Boombox. Julian Casablancas from the Strokes appears, as he provided vocals for the song. The video pretty much tells the story I envisioned in my head, and any song and/or video that references the…

Think I work at CVS? I don’t.

The Jennifer Lopez classic Love Don’t Cost a Thing was on Mix 93.1 earlier today while I was working, and it reminded me of when the song first came out. I’ve always thought she says, “think I work at CVS, I don’t” at one point. I know those aren’t the actual lyrics, though.   In…

You got your sixty back…

This happened quite some time ago at a poker night at the VFW, but it merits mention nonetheless. It was final table with a few of us left, the blinds were high, and while I wasn’t involved in either of these hands, I was still playing and watching. Two guys got involved in a pot…

Wouldn’t Black Sabbath make more sense?

Thanks to Bill for sending me this link earlier today. It seems that the soundtrack for Iron Man 2 will consist of solely AC/DC songs, and the soundtrack, available April 19, 2010, will be called AC/DC: Iron Man 2. One would think that AC/DC recorded a new track or two for the soundtrack, like Big…

Sloppy Joe, Slop Sloppy Joe

On the nights my wife works, it’s up to me to make dinner for myself and Quinn. One of my go-to meals, mainly because it’s easy to prepare and doesn’t take much time, is Hamburger Helper. There are enough varieties that having it once a week doesn’t really get too old, and it’s just easier…

The Hoedown Throwdown

So, another trip to Lancaster for me and and my family for work, and more mix CD’s made for the 6 hour roadtrip. When making CD’s for the trip, my wife and I strive for a good variety of music that we enjoy, as well as some kid’s songs to keep Quinn happy in the…

It’s a nice day for an Office wedding

Last night marked the biggest television wedding since Monica and Chandler or Luke and Laura when Jim and Pam got married on The Office. The episode actually surpassed my expectations, and the entire cast got some really funny moments. The episode was chock-full of great moments; Dwight hooking up with Pam’s best friend, Andy tearing…

The guy from Theory of a Deadman hates his life

One of the catchier songs I’ve been hearing on Lazer 99.3 lately is Hate My Life by Theory of a Deadman. You may not know the band, but they’re one of those stereotypical rock radio bands. You might confuse them with Nickelback, or Shinedown, or Three Days Grace, or Breaking Benjamin, or…well, you get the…

I’m looking to the sky to save me, looking for a satellite

Here at Songspeak, we love the Foo Fighters. I don’t remember if this particular misheard lyric was due to me, Matt, or just something we heard somewhere else, but it’s a misheard lyric nonetheless. It’s from their song Learn to Fly. It sounds like Dave Grohl sings, “I’m looking to the sky to save me,…
