Throwback Thursday: “Summer Day”

It’s been a bit since I’ve done a Throwback Thursday post here on the blog. Continuing a trend, I won’t be throwing it back that far. Today’s song is just six years old, and it came out this very week, in fact. The song in itself is kind a throwback, though–maybe you could call it…

Throwback Thursday: Pentatonix

A little more than 4 years ago, on the second third-season episode of a cappella competition “The Sing-Off,” a group called Pentatonix stepped on stage for the first time. One of 8 groups making their debut that night, they sang a cover of “ET” by Katy Perry. Back then, I was doing regular recaps of the…

Throwback Thursday: “Tower of Sand” & “Sugar”

Taking it back all the way to 2007 and 2010, respectively, today’s Throwback Thursday post is double the fun. From a somewhat recent discovery of mine, indie singer-songwriter Chris Merritt, here’s not one, but two of his songs, “Tower of Sand” and “Sugar.” I first came across Chris Merritt while on my mission, of all places. He contributed a…

Throwback Thursday: “Let’s Face The Music and Dance”

Briefly, for your throwback listening pleasure on this fine Thursday evening, here’s a gem from 1964…Nat King Cole’s outstanding version of the timeless jazz standard “Let’s Face The Music and Dance.” I’ve long loved many of Nat King Cole’s recordings of jazz classics, but for some reason his take on “Let’s Face The Music and…

Throwback Thursday: “Fidelity”

Looking through my blog posts, I haven’t done something for Throwback Thursday since March. That post focused on an album from the 1970s. This throwback is a bit more recent, from 2006. It’s also the first music video I’m throwing back to…travel through time with me to watch Regina Spektor’s fine video for her hit single “Fidelity.” To…

Jueves de antaño (Throwback Thursday): “Rompecorazones”

Es hora de compartir más música en español en este blog, y esta vez, voy a hacer algo para el “Throwback Thursday,” o sea, “jueves de antaño,” una tradición del Internet que se lleva a cabo cada jueves. (La gente pone fotos, música, etc. para recordar a los tiempos pasados.) Es la primera vez que…

Throwback Thursday: Nightbirds

Every Thursday, I consider doing a Throwback Thursday post, and I often have quite a few good ideas about one. However, every Thursday seems to turn out quite busy for me, or I don’t get around to posting, or something or other gets in the way. Today, I’ll change that with a quick post about…

Throwback Thursday: “O Little Town of Bethlehem”

I had to get in one more Throwback Thursday post for the Christmas season. (There’s probably a lot of them I could have made, but I’ll just content myself with these two that I’ve had, and direct any others I might have made to something else.) Here’s a beautiful rendition of an old favorite, with…

Throwback Thursday: “Christmas Lights”

This blog has become very British as of late. Laura Mvula, Sam Smith, Kate Bush…I mean, I knew I was an Anglophile, but this trend is interesting. And it will continue with a Throwback Thursday post harking back to a song I highlighted 4 years ago this week. I’ve found it a bit uncharacteristically rocky…

Throwback Thursday: “Wuthering Heights”

Yes, I know it’s Friday. But I wanted to get a Throwback Thursday post out this week, and I suppose I could change the name of this post to “Flashback Friday,” but since the feature is called Throwback Thursday…oh, never mind. It’s the thought that counts, right? Getting on with things…here’s a song I recently…

Throwback Thursday: “How High The Moon”

I haven’t been able to post for the past few days, but seeing as Harmony Avenue is approaching its fourth anniversary (!!!) this week, I had to get out a timely Throwback Thursday post celebrating said milestone. I can’t believe it’s been four years since I started this blog…of course, two of those years, the…
