Top Ten Thursday: Best Winter Songs

Not sure where your neck of the woods is, but where I am (the Chicago area), it got mighty frigid this week. So in honor of our prickly cold weather, we give you the best songs for this time of year, our favorite winter songs. In evaluating these songs, much like how we evaluated  our top ten albums of winter last year, we tried to find the ten songs that best encapsulate the look, feel, and sound of the season; not

B.L.U.E.S. Night in Chicago: a Show and Venue Review

Toronzo Cannon and the Cannonball Express November 2, 2012 B.L.U.E.S.

So while Time is releasing a commemorative book for the Stones this week and there is even a 50th anniverary

Top Ten Thursday: Jack White Out

Top Ten Thursday: Jack White Out   Continuing our week of unabashed love and adoration for Jack White, we thought what better than to bring an all-Jack list to the masses (or…our friends’ basements), and a day early at that. Our discussions were actually much longer and vicious than our usual list quarrels, really feeling the weight of making such a jam-packed list as this. We discussed a few songs off of Blunderbussmaking the list (primarily “Love Interruption”, “Hip (Eponymous) Poor
