Since it’s the day after April Fools day I thought songs about fools and humorous topics would be a good theme for music night. For the third week in a row a Beatles song is the best place to start. The Beatles – Fool on the Hill [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKZHwf5q22g[/youtube] Evanescence – […]

“Elvis Presley is the undisputed King of Rock and Roll. He rose from humble circumstances to launch the rock and roll revolution with his commanding voice and charismatic stage presence.

The “Oldies But Goodies” Friday night at PPOV post last week got me recollecting about a neat thing that happened this summer. It was something that showed me how music can speak through the generations – when you least expect it to. I was downtown with my daughter and her […]
