The Top 25 Songs of 2015

2016 may already be upon us, but it’s never too late to look back on 2015 and the musical treasures it gave us. Today starts a brief but jam-packed series of posts celebrating a glorious year in music, culminating of course with my annual Top Albums list. In my earliest years on the blog, I…

Best Albums of 2014 — Part I

This is a project I’ve been excited to unveil for quite some time now. (Of course, as is typical with me, it’s a bit late getting out. We’re already well into 2015. All the best-of-2014 lists have come and gone, but I’ve always been a bit of a…rebel? Sure, let’s go with that.) 3 years…

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…

Music Video of the Day: “God Only Knows”

Today’s music video spotlight, our first in a bit, is quite a star-studded affair. And it’s a very, very good one. Let’s get right to it, the Music Video of the Day… “God Only Knows”! But who’s the artist? Well, there’s actually quite a few. Last week, the BBC released this all-star cover of the…

My Favorite Albums of 2011, Part I

The time has come for my last posts of the year, and they’re two posts I’ve been excited for a while to make. This year I’ve curated a list of my 19 favorite albums (yep, I know I said 15 earlier, but the times, they are a-changin’) of 2011, plus a few fine EPs I’ve…

“The Sing-Off” Season 3, Episode 4 Recap: I Want You Back

Once again, I was unable to watch the show live this week, but watched it this morning (thanks again, Hulu!). Last week I was able to survive until Tuesday morning spoiler-free, but unfortunately last night, I was tipped off to the result of Monday night’s elimination not once, but twice. (I ‘like’ the eliminated group…

Sketches: Yellow

My first Sketches (AKA the part where I blog about something random and music-related, in an informal fashion) post in a while, beginning with a video: As I might have stated on this blog before, I’m a HUGE covers guy. One of my favorite types of music to look for is that of one artist…

Music Video of the Day: “Christmas Lights”

Howdy once again, Harmony Avenue readers. Rather than a Song of the Day today, I’m going to step it up a bit and do a Music Video of the Day. This is also a little preview of the holiday-tastic goodness I’ll hopefully be diving into later this month. 🙂 Today, take a gander at the…
