Then and now musical comparisons.

I’ve seen a bunch of these sorts of things:

This type of image is always wrought with selectively biased points, yet always attracts a coo of agreement from anyone who isn’t a tweenage girl. In other words, while the statements are true, the point is quite misleading. I could go on a tirade about how the internet has made music much more expansive than it’s ever been in all of history, but I’ll just leave it at this:

Morcheeba – Blood Like Lemonade

Fans of Trip Hop will like this one.  I am a huge fan of the merging of hip-hop and blues.  The downtempo chill-out vibes emanating from my hi-fi.  Good stuff.  Incomplete sentences.

Dig it.  Good album to relax to… Or make out, if that’s more your style.

Personal favorite tracks:
Even Though
Blood Like Lemonade

The truth is, Santana really knows how to rock it out with a guitar:

Citizen Cope/Santana – Sideways

That’s all.  I just felt like sharing.  Also, this song makes me feel good, and bad.  With it’s melancholy underpinnings, and spine-tingling guitar, it just seeps emotion… At least, that’s how I feel.  The great thing about music is that it speaks to everyone differently.



General footnote:  Happy Holidays, everybody!  Remember, this is a holiday about giving.  As I imagine most of you are like me and live in the wealthiest nation in the world, how about you go check out The Life You Can Save and make a donation to those less fortunate.  If you find yourself with a moral dilemma in regards to feeding the hungry vs. population control, you can walk on over to Wikipedia, and check out the Demographic-Economic Paradox and rest assured that you are, in fact, doing the right thing.
