Song of the Day: “Call Me”

Forgive the relatively late hour at which I’m posting this (making it more a “Song of the Night” than a “Song of the Day”), but I just discovered a song, and I really, really wanted to share it. So much that I’m awakening this blog, yet again, from its slumber. Take a listen to “Call Me”…

Music Video of the Day: “From the Cold (Live)”

OK, now that our long national nightmare my big Top Albums project is over, it’s time to get to the ever-growing backlog of great non-albums list related music I’ve been anxious to share. This first gem is a music video of the song “From The Cold,” recorded live by indie artist Cody Fry.  I first came in…

Holiday Song of the Day: “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”

Just in time for, as I like to call it, Christmas Eve Eve (the day before Christmas Eve, of course), here’s a stunning live performance of a well-known Christmas carol, like you’ve definitely never heard it before. I’ve shared music previously on this blog by Millennial Choirs & Orchestras, an all-volunteer choral and orchestral organization that…

Holiday Song of the Day: “Home for Christmas”

Us being ten days into December already, it’s definitely time to kick off the Christmas music season here at Harmony Avenue, with a beautiful holiday tune by my favorite band. Take a listen to “Home For Christmas” by The Family Crest. I’ve gone on record previously about how much I love The Family Crest and how they…

Song of the Day: “So There”

Ben Folds has gone in quite a few different directions over the years. He’s been in a rock band. He’s produced an a cappella album. He’s worked with acclaimed author Nick Hornby. One thing that has been constant throughout all his artistic exploration is that he’s consistently been making some excellent music. (Example: a song…

Music Video of the Day: “Amazing Grace”

It’s the eve of the Fourth of July (this blog has been very patriotic this week, hasn’t it?), and I’d love to share an excellent, just-released video with you that helps celebrate Independence Day in a very special way. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice & renowned violinist Jenny Oaks Baker here team up for a stunning rendition of…

Song of the Day: “Cavalier”

Today’s Song of the Day is a track I recently discovered thanks to a very great source for new music, the Fox reality dance competition “So You Think You Can Dance.” Take a listen to… “Cavalier,” by Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow. As I’ve mentioned in passing on this blog, I’m a big “SYTYCD” fan….

Music Video of the Day: “Unstoppable”

I haven’t done two Music Videos of the Day in a row in quite some time, but there’s a really terrific one I’ve been anxious to share… “Unstoppable” by Lianne La Havas. Lianne La Havas, a British pop/folk/soul singer-songwriter (you know me and my love for music from the UK), released her debut album “Is…

Music Video of the Day: “Who Is It?”

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Music Video of the Day, so let’s get to it. Today’s spotlighted song/video… “Who Is It?” by Kurt Elling. Kurt Elling is arguably today’s foremost male jazz vocalist, and for good reason…his musical output is legendary in the jazz world. This new song is the lead single from his…

Song of the Day: “Hymn to the Fallen”

A very happy Memorial Day to all of you. Today’s Song of the Day, to commemorate this day, is… “Hymn to the Fallen,” performed here by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. This song, beautifully performed by the Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square, was composed by John Williams for the 1998 film “Saving Private Ryan.”…

Song Sampler of the Day: “Sirens” & “Never Let You Down”

Today’s kind of a special post, for reasons you’ll see in a moment. Plus, I’m sharing not just one song for this Song of the Day post, but two! Two for the price of one, as they say… “Sirens” & “Never Let You Down” by the Weepies! The Weepies are an incredible pair of singer/songwriters…
