David Archuleta is a man on a mission. Or at least he will be soon. And that could make for some disappointing news for his fans.

Music is an art. Some people commit to it like a religion, and all people commit to it in some sense. I was reading a very interesting article where Michael Buble said that when he listens to Frank Sinatra, he's never pitch perfect, and often sings under. Now a days, regardless of your talent, your CD doesn't leave the studio without pitch correction or auto tune and…Continue

Everywhere you go, chances are there is a stack of impulse buy CD's right by the register. I mean Starbucks, Barnes and Nobles, Target... everywhere. But Don't just buy the CD's that people pay to have placed strategically in your face. There are a couple of awesome Christmas CD's worth walking to the back section of the store and grabbing.
Michael Buble has a…Continue

NEW YORK (AP) -- Paul McCartney is releasing an album of standards, plus two new songs of his own.
The former Beatle announced Monday that his new disc will be out on Feb. 7. It doesn't have a title yet. He's already streaming one song, "My Valentine," on his website.
McCartney says he and John Lennon were inspired in their own writing by some of the standards. Some of…Continue

Shatner, Austin Powers, and The Notebook. If you hadn't read the title of this blog, there is probably no connection in your head to these three Hollywood hot topics. These three blockbuster names are moving from the west coast to the east coast, and making a debut on Broadway.
The holiday season brings a lot of attention to NY's most famous street, so it's no shock that they'd hit us with…Continue

I'm kicking myself for only making a prediction about who is going to win X-factor and not who is going to get voted off this week. I would have definitely predicted Marcus Canty to be voted off, and sure enough, he won't be returning for next week's finale.
Last night's show was pretty predictable, but it still had some unexpected moments. The group sang Blackstreet's "No Diggity." The Rapper…Continue

I stumbled upon a special billboard list of the top 100 christmas songs. Of course Mariah Carey was on top. I could jam to that song all year round.
Biebs was on there, which is fine because that was just the initial buzz of his xmas cd. Check out the other songs on the list... I actually feel like it is pretty accurate.
Billboard top 100- …Continue

Kelly Clarkson is back... or at least she fooled me. She's been kind of checked out since the "Breakaway" album and this album is back to what Kelly does best. It's got that same soulful rocker chick style we saw on idol, but with a little more wear on the tires. However it's a necessary wear and tear reflective of her hollywood life. I love it. She's holding her own…Continue

It's no mystery to us radio browsers that pop songs are pumped out to catch our attention with even hearing the littlest clip. Then if they hooked us, quite possibly literally with a lyric and melodic "hook," they usually have us on their line for 3 minutes... Or maybe the entire car ride home.
Now there are a number of songs that catch you and suck you in that have some merit to them. Anything…Continue

She's an Iconic ginger with an in your face voice, that sometimes dresses like a fairy bat on stage. At first we were confused whether to like her, and now her curiosity has hypnotized us into watching some simple yet mesmerizing moments of music.
Florence and the Machine has kind of been on the back burner for me for a couple years. I remember they showed up on the MTV stage a couple years ago…Continue

Republican hopeful Mitt Romney asked for permission to use Kid Rock's song, "Born Free," as an anthem for his campaign. I feel like when I say Republican hopeful, I'm talking about Olympic hopefuls or something. But let's face it, these politicians require half the skill of Olympians.
Kid Rock definitely pumps out some solid rock/country tracks, which coincides…Continue

Yes I purposely mislead you with the title- but it's true. Taylor Swift has been reaching out of her comfort zone the past couple weeks and contacting hip hop artists to collaborate with. First Nicki Minaj and Now TI. It's like America's good girl teaming up with America's most wanted. TI just recently got released from a prison sentence and Tswift called him practically the next day.
I am all…Continue

A couple months ago a group called Karmin swept Youtube with an immediate viral video of Chris Brown and Busta Rhyme's "Look at me Now." The Group features two Berklee grads creating a completely new twist on pop songs by replacing some elements of the songs with real instruments rather than electronically generated beats and synthesized sounds. If you know anything…Continue

I hate to make this Nicki day, but Willow Smith is releasing a new music video to a song that she collaborated with Nicki Minaj on, called "Fireball." The Smith kids have some serious talent. They are amazing dancers, and though willow is still very young, her singing chops are pretty good, she even sings live.... (I hate saying that like that's an accomplishment)
The weirdness factor in this…Continue

As you all know (because I can't stop posting about it) Amy Winehouse's producers have dug into the archives and stumbled across recent and older tracks that Amy was working on or recorded for fun, to released the CD that came out this morning; Amy Winehouse Lioness:Hidden Treasures. I don't think anyone missed the news that Ms. Winehouse passed away due to an over ambition…Continue
