The above video needs some work, but at least it captures the feel of the theme montage of the critically acclaimed 1980s television medical drama St. Elsewhere while setting it to clips from the critically acclaimed contemporary television medical drama House, M.D. One of the comments on this video’s YouTube site states that the theme song to St. Elsewhere is “one of the best pieces of theme music ever.” Of course, the theme song for House, M.D. isn’t bad either.
Here is another Go Home Productions work of beauty. Here what you get when you mix Christina Aguilera’s “Genie in a Bottle” with Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys are Back in Town”.
Was looking up stuff on Joe Cocker today and came across this song that I had totally forgotten but instantly recalled with fondness when I heard it. “Edge of a Dream” was from the soundtrack of the 1984 film Teachers. I still see Kenny Loggins as the master of the 1980s soundtrack song, but when I think about it Joe Cocker had a few good ones, too.
What do you get when you cross the Who with Madonna? Like A Virgin was Madonna’s big hit from 1984 and Baba O’Riley is the Who’s 1971 masterpiece. How do you like them together?

I’ll argue that this is going to be one of the best albums of 2010. Broken Bells is artist-producer Danger Mouse, and James Mercer who is the lead vocalist from The Shins. “The High Road” is the first single released off of the self titled album which was released on March 9. Since the release date the album is getting a lot of press and mention on social media sites.
Broken Bells is currently on tour promoting the album.
In the 1980s, this Wendy’s commercial was extremely popular. “Is Next…” was the key phrase. Could polka tuba music go mainstream again?
Recently I have noticed that Billboard Magazine has been turning up the heat on what they have got to offer. I saw this article last year that exclaimed that “Billboard aims to be one-stop shop for listening, shopping for music.” Since the launch of their user-centric website, they unburied content and made it more easily accessible on the homepage. The music charts are also more intuitively organized. However what personally made me take notice is when the music magazine launched their iPhone application.
Billboard magazine’s iPhone app is worth the $2.99 because it makes the magazine portable. Now I can look up almost any current chart, download the song right from iTunes and even look up past hits. If you are music aficionado, then you need to check out the Billboard Magazine iPhone app.
