Re: Film Finds and Classic Cinema Corner (my new video series)

Here are my two most recent main videos.

Re: Noel Gallagher quote on lyrics

For me, it all depends on the genre. Lyrics are easily one of my main focuses in hip hop and folk music. Other genres not so much. But in those first two genres, the way language is said also works differently; most of the time, the enunciation is clearer. There are a lot of rock songs where I have ...

What really surprised me was learning that Wuthering Heights was actually a number one hit in the UK, lasting a few weeks at the top. Up until learning that, I had always assumed she was one of those art-rock types that the average person would never come across, but, no. She was actually a star.
