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…

No one wants to eat a fetus

My fellow blogger Matt Larsen had a New Year’s Eve shindig in his domicile last week. Food was eaten, games were played, and a fantastic time was had by all. Lots of music was listened to…some good, some bad. An impromptu dance party broke out. It was your standard NYE shenanigans. For some reason, an…

Barenaked Ladies Are Me…and my friend

Last Friday, I met a friend at Mohegan Sun to see Barenaked Ladies, for which I had complimentary tickets. The show, in a nutshell, was great. I left work promptly at 5pm and made it to Mohegan Sun in an hour and 40 minutes. Not too shabby. My friend arrived shortly thereafter and we went…

On the Wings of Love

There was a pretty awesome songspeak on the Soup Awards this past weekend. Jeffrey Osborne’s classic 80’s ballad On the Wings of Love was nominated for his perfomance of the song on the season finale of ABC’s The Bachelor. Although Heidi Montag’s abominable performance from the Miss Universe Pageant won the award, Jeffrey Osborne made…

One would think that AC/DC recorded a new track or two for the soundtrack, like Big…

I am a tough tough personality

I already told you all about one of my biggest misheard lyrics from my youth, but Matt hasn’t shared his yet, so I thought I’d go ahead and do it for him. It comes from Living Colour and their big hit Cult of Personality. I still hear it on the radio all the time, and…

One Night of Queen: A Songspeak Outing

Flash! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! This past Friday night was a night 17 years in the making.  Matt and I attended One Night of Queen at Springfield Symphony Hall in Springfield, Massachusetts. The ticket stub can be seen on the right. Would we play games with you? You see, our relationship blossomed 17 years ago in high school,…

We all got shitty on rum and coke

Who doesn’t love We Built This City by Starship? Well, probably lots of people. But we here at Songspeak do. My co-worker has alternate lyrics for the chorus, though, that she sang either back in high school or college. Instead of “we built this city on rock and roll”, they used to sing, “we all…

Seether covers Careless Whisper

Rock band Seether, known mainly for their songs Broken and Remedy, have released a cover of Wham!’s 80’s classic Careless Whisper. And it’s not half bad: Seether is already partway to becoming Wham! themselves. I mean, three-quarters of the band are already about as well known and recognizable as Andrew Ridgeley. All lead singer Shaun…
