The Top 10 Inspirational Songs

Any list of this sort has to be personal, and so what I am offering is a list of songs, some of which you may readily recall, some of which may just be on the edge of your recollection… but songs that have a lyric which will promoted reflection and possibly inspire action. Of course it would be easy to go for the obvious “You Lift Me Up” in its various incarnations or “I believe I can fly” which is rather obvious in its imagery, but I have decided to take this top ten list in a less obvious direction. So without further ado At number… 10: The Living Years by Mike and the Mechanics Written by Mike Rutherford and B.A. Robertson This bitter-sweet song about a young man reflecting on the loss of his father and how he wished he had said more is really about the way we […]

American Idol – Self Improvement Brought to Life By Jordin Sparks

So, another season of American Idol comes to an end with the crowning of Jordin Sparks as American Idol 2007. On the night, she was a deserving winner, as well as being a beautiful person and a wonderful singer. Only the most cynical and spiteful of observers can argue that American Idol does not produce some great singers, it does; or that Jordin is not one of them, she is. We know already that the top three, as last year, will probably be superstars. So we can look forward to great things and big album sales from Melinda Doolittle and Blake Lewis, as well as Jordin. Apart from loving music of many types, one of the reasons I enjoy American Idol is the way, when it gets down to the final 16 and the serious singing contest, you can watch as young talented people develop before your eyes. The whole […]

The Armchair Cynics – Anything But Cynical

Recently, a group of talented musicians did the impossible and breathed new life into this aficionado's decrepit anthology of old favorites. The name of this soulful bunch is the Armchair Cynics and their gift is arena-filling sound, evocative song writing and an edgy yet captivating presentation. Not only is their music spellbinding when heard over the airwaves but heard live it is awesome and I'm not the only one who shares this sentiment. Included in the Armchair Cynic's list of fans is Nickelback frontman, Chad Kroeger. Kroeger and business partner Jonathin Simkin have signed the Cynics to a record deal with their label, 604 Records. This union gave rise to their sold-out EP titled "Killing the Romance". Simkin told me that neither him nor Kroeger could overlook the Cynic's ability to write first-rate songs that are not only melodic but also richly layered. That wasn't their only alluring quality.
