Ungrateful Living / Everlast

Erik Francis Schrody

I’m not into RAP, I’m not into Opera either, but that being said, I like this guy.

I was introduced to his voice while watching the series called Saving Grace.  He’s been around since he was introduced into the scene as a member of Ice-T’s Rhyme Syndicate around 1990.  There are fifteen songs on this new album and I’ve added ten to my everyday listening playlist. Songs, 1  3  4  5  6  7  8  10  13  15

I’ll be checking back in six-months to see if any or all of the songs are still on my playlist.


James Morrison – definitely influenced by Stevie Wonder

This is the first time I’ve conscientiously listened to James Morrison’s music.  He released a new album this month called ‘The Awakening’.  The longer I listened to the songs, the more Stevie Wonder came to mind.

I have Stevie Wonder’s hits in my collection of tunes and I think the way James enunciates his words and holds the notes out at times is what reminds me of Mr. Wonder, but it could be something else.

Scratchy voice like Bryan Adams, inflections of Stevie Wonder and as far into the “soul” genre as I’ll go, I’m adding this album to my soft listening list.  He’ll be background music for reading and studying.


Seeking Major Tom

 Dear Mr. Shatner,

Why did you feel the need to butcher these songs?  I like science-fiction and I’ve watched all of the Star Trek shows, but I couldn’t make it though the first song and you recorded nineteen (Mrs. Major Tom, recorded by Sheryl Crow).

Trekkies/Trekkers will find the “need” to purchase this album for their collection.  Are you taking advantage of your fans and pocketing the money or are you donating the proceeds to charity? I hope its the latter.

Yours truly, DMoore


rock band – Three Doors Down

Three Doors Down, my type of rock band.  I think their latest album Time of My Life  is their best, but the album 3 Doors Down is really good.

Time of My Life:  Twelve songs and the only one I don’t enjoy is Believer.  Not bad.


Music Unlimited

This music site is by qriocity.com or Sony if you wish.

I’ve been with Spotify for awhile now and really love it.  It provides me with new music releases, while offering everything else in the current and past market.  I have days and days worth of music.  I’ve made different lists for my different moods.  I can listen to radio with all of its talk and commercials. I’m not stuck listening to my music choices just on my computer, but I can take them with me in my phone.

If you’ve moved from Spotify to Music Unlimited and you’re glad you made the change, write and share your reasons why.  Otherwise, I’m not moving.  I’m a happy camper right where I am.
