Here Are 10 Songs To Help Brighten Your Day

1/16/2016 1:00pm EST
The Weeknd
What comes to mind when one hears the word angel? Usually, we characterize angels as heavenly – not as powerful as God, but definitely spiritual beings. Whether you’re devout or couldn’t be any further removed from religion, angels play a significant role in pop culture, whether its books, film, or music. Many, many songs have been written about angels. This list doesn’t cover them all, but here are 13 angelic songs to brighten your day…your year…your life! Let the spirit of the celestial beams encapsulate you, and let the music do the same!

1) One Direction, “Hey Angel” (Made in the A.M.,...

These Songs Were Made With The Cemetery In Mind

10 Songs About Death And Burial
Death is an eerie thing – understatement to the nth degree. Still, it’s real-life and as uncomfortable a topic it may be, it must be discussed. In the context of this article, death is approached from the postmortem practice of burial. There are no references to embalming, mummification or cremation. Who in their right mind would write a song about those things anyways? Well maybe somebody, but it doesn’t happen here! Still, these joints have the cemetery in mind.

1) Rick Ross featuring T.I., “Bury Me A G” (Self Made Volume 2, 2012)

On “Bury Me A G,” Rick Ross doesn’t seem to care a...

5th Album Is A Charm For Breaking Benjamin

Breaking Benjamin Becomes The Latest Musicians To Score First No
2015 must be the year of chart dreams realized – at least for some artists. Not everybody can boast of the chart glory (looking at you Ciara). For Breaking Benjamin, a band on their fifth album, reaching the penthouse on the Billboard 200 had eluded them four times before. Finally, the fifth time proved to be charm and Dark Before Dawn earned the band their first #1 album. The numbers are rock solid, as Dark Before Dawn shows no darkness whatsoever with 141,000 units, most of which were album sales. BB is certainly doing its thing – kudos boys, kudos.

Being the jam-packed week it was...

Top Ten Close Call Albums of 2009

1/5/2010 8:12am EST
Even though there were a lot of cant miss records that saw a 2009 release, there are those were good enough to warrant year end consideration, but not quite Top Ten material, thus the need for this list, Top Ten Close Calls of 2009. These records are good, obviously, or else they wouldn't get their own list. Even though they are in their article and on this list labeled as close calls, they are far from it really. It's not like there are a bunch of throwaway records on this list. The likes of Breaking Benjamin, Static-X and Paul Oakenfold grace this list, one full of ten records that will w...

A Conversation With Sameer Bhattacharya Of Flyleaf

12/28/2009 4:29pm EST
Sure, sure. I have heard it all already. Everyone I know that is a fan of Flyleaf is upset that the band made the decision to take the road less traveled for them, one with less screams and a tad less aggression on their new album, Memento Mori. Yeah, their self titled album was teeming with a certain kind of rawness, a certain power all its own. This time out they took the path of melody and concentrated more of their hooks than anything else and guess what, it worked perfectly. Memento Mori is a great next step for the band, a natural progression if you will. So those that are miffed, res...

I Should Care Why?: The world needs more bands like the Art of Dying and I'll tell you why. They aren't some whiny teenage Disney star who thinks they can sing, and they aren't emo. They are honest, that much is evident by listening to just one of their tracks (I recommend 'You Don't Know Me'). You would think that t...

10/5/2006 1:10pm EDT
In perhaps the ultimate example of 'taking care of your own,' rockers Godsmack will be taking out fellow Boston, Massachusetts residents Hourcast, on a month's worth of arena dates.

Touring in support of their just-released debut full length, 'State of Disgrace,' the group - which is comprised of Patrick McBride: vocals, David Henriquez: guitars, David Sullivan: bass, and Jerry Clews: drums - should have no problem gaining a legion of new fans with their tough, industrial metal sound.

The video was directed by Texan director Paul Minor (James Blunt, BT, Louis XIV, Funeral For a Friend), who shot with the unmistakable eye of a photojournalist, as well as the empathy of a true storyteller.
