Our 2nd Edition Of Passionate, Heartfelt Songs

10/18/2015 11:00am EDT
Incredibly Heartfelt Songs Of 2015, Vol. 2
Where would music be without passionate, heartfelt songs? Sad – that’s what it would be! Each passing year brings an assortment of heartfelt songs that resonate with the listener in some form or fashion. Even with plenty of novelty and nonsensical songs on the radio (looking at you “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)”), people still enjoy the depth of a song about love, pain, and varying other emotions.

With so many heartfelt tunes in 2015, another list – arguably a more unsung one – was necessary. If you haven’t already checked out Volume 1, then you’re missing out! The good thing is that there’s no...

2015's Most Underrated Songs

25 Most Underrated Songs Of 2015 (So Far)
Not every record ends up being a hit. In fact if you think about it, only a select few songs end up with the distinction of hit status. The songs featured on this list are terrific, but none of them have been profound in the commercial department. Arguably, the best way to describe these songs are ‘underrated’ – they are the ‘unsung heroes’ of the year as well as their artist’s respective album. All deserve the same respect if not more than the hits, but they can always bask in their critical acclaim. These are the most underrated songs of 2015…so far.

The underrated songs chosen are ...

Imagine Dragons Lead Albums To Check Out: This Week In Music
February 2015 has been a music release month without a homerun you might say. Sure, there have been some solid newbies such as Now 53 and Fifth Harmony’s Reflection, but there hasn’t been that big-time hit with staying power as yet. Maybe that changes this week with the release of Imagine Dragons’ sophomore album Smoke+ Mirrors, not to mention the surprise pre-Valentines Day Drake album, If You’re Reading This Its Too Late. Here are six albums to check out!

1) Imagine Dragons, Smoke + Mirrors (Interscope)

Imagine Dragons’ sophomore album Smoke + Mirrors ranks among the year’s most hi...

25 Best R&B Albums Of 2013

12/27/2013 6:30pm EST
It truly saddens me to see R&B, a personal favorite style of music, in a state of uncertainty.  2013 found the numbers of R&B down considerably, a trend that is consistent year in and year out. Save for a select few commercial bright spots (led by an unexpected Beyoncé album), R&B only dented the charts. Even so, finding 25 albums with some significance wasn’t difficult to do.  Sure, some of the lowest ranked albums have their flaws, but each has some reason for being selected.  Enjoy!

1) Janelle Monáe - The Electric Lady
Bad Boy

12 Songs For Lovers – A Soundtrack That Will Boost Any Relationship

10/26/2013 4:00pm EDT
Janelle featuring Miguel primetime
Love songs can be so touching and certainly can propel any relationship (and in some cases hookups).  I have constructed a list of 12 ‘love’ songs that have the emotional and physical connection between lovers in mind… or something like that!  I attempted to make some narrative, but like most soundtracks, they’re all over the place anyways!

Track 1

Raheem DeVaughn, “Complicated”

(A Place Called Love Land)

As we know, no one relationship is ‘cut and dry’ by any means; all are their own diverse entity.  Among Raheem DeVaughn’s best tracks on his underrated indie-R&B album A Place Called L...

Will R&B Ever Recover From Sales Inconsistencies?

9/10/2013 7:30pm EDT
John Legend
On Tuesday, September 3, 2013, I felt reassured about the output of R&B music.  As perused the CD aisle at the local Best Buy, I felt excited to see the majority of new releases were R&B (Neko Case and Nine Inch Nails among exemptions).  That observation should be shocking in itself.  This included established artists like John Legend, Jaheim, and Raheem DeVaughn, as well as rising artists in Tamar Braxton (a ‘reintroduction’ you might say) and Ariana Grande (a pop/R&B blend).  From my perspective, being an R&B lover who’s at his best singing along with a slow jam, I was happy to see such a...

Bowling For Soup Introduce Their 'Six Million Dollar Video'

3/26/2007 2:44pm EDT
Bowling For Soup
Jive Recording Artist Bowling For Soup continue to bring their own brand of creative expression with their new video "When We Die," as they cast Lee Majors in a leading role.

"When We Die," a the current single from their album, The Great Burrito Extortion Case is a departure from the usual happy go lucky videos that fans may have been accustomed to, but in its essence it is still a Bowling For Soup video. The video revolves around the tumultuous relationship between a father, played by Lee Majors, and son and how they overcome past differences to rejoin, make amends and hopefully s...
