What we listened to today

Sometimes our day is so random, not counting anything on the car radio here is some of what we listened to today via YouTube:

Sweat of your Brow by Jully Black - I really like her vibe and her voice. It isn't all about packaging for this lady. She has talent. I'm sure I'm singing the words ALL WRONG. I need to look up the lyrics. I must have listened to it about a dozen times today

No One by Alicia Keys - can you believe it was my first time hearing this song? or seeing the video. So far so good. I may have to give it a few listens. I like Alicia Keys style. I like that she doesn't go out and degrade herself just to sell a record.

There are times I am so late in getting to know an artist and that is the case with M-FLO. Now I must say they have become one of my Youtube favorites. One thing they give one heck of a concert and I love their crowds. Why because the people are getting into it instead of standing around trying to look cute. Heck if you pay your money to go to a concert - HAVE FUN! Anyway I love So Exclusive featuring Sowelu. Oh, and I can't speak Japanese nor Korean - thank goodness they sprinkle English in it. Still I would pay to see them. Also Miss You featuring Melody and Ryohei again look like fun times. I've actually learned about a lot of artists via M-FLO and I must recommend Astrosexy featuring Ryohei - LOVE the part where the guy in the audience joins in.

Actually there are lots more but wouldn't you know that I actually have work to do. Look forward to sharing more.

Music and YouTube

Never underestimate the power of Youtube in finding good music. I've actually discovered some great stuff over the past two months. You just have to be willing to branch out. Go ahead and try some of the links that fit the music video you just listened to. I've also had the chance to go down memory lane. What are some of the things we've found ourselves grooving to? Here is just a short list. Some you may have heard of others maybe not but here goes: Madness, M-Flo, Emyli, Foreigner, Queen (never realized how ground breaking they were), Oingo Boingo, Random Ninjas (unsigned band that needs to be signed real soon), Billy Joel, General Public, India Arie (sometimes I forget just how amazing she is), Jully Black... There are definitely others and we hope to share them with you.

So tell me today, what are you listening to?

Music Recommendations???

It seems that we are often fed the same "artists" over and over. Lately I've found a certain fondness for the "little guys" in this music industry. They seem to have such a passion for their art. Not sure if every member of the family feel the same way but it is definitely something that I've been trying to pursue. So, do you have a singer or band that you feel is overlooked? If so please leave a comment or even message us on our myspace page at I look forward to hearing some of what you've discovered.

Music in Our Lives

Music is such a part of our lives. We listen to it everyday. But...usually not on the radio. We've found that the radio plays mostly the same thing multiple times a day and there is just so much good music out there that goes unheard.

What type of music do we like? Well, actually it would be easier to say what kind we don't like. There are other members of this family so I will answer for myself - for me I don't need to listen to music to depress me or belittle me or others. For genres I'll listen to mostly anything - Jpop, R&B, Country, Bluegrass, Pop, Rock n Roll, Disco, Bossa Nova, Jazz, - get the picture?
