Music Monday Edition

It still kills me what Amy Winehouse has done with her life and career. Especially when I listen to stuff like "Tears Dry on Their Own". Such a waste.



I'd like to see Amy come back and maybe record a duet with Adele. Both these ladies have got some soul to squeeze. Yowza. Here she is covering Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love".


And then there is Alexa Ray Joel. Billy's daughter. Sure, she sounds a bit like a chipmunk in this one, but at least it's not auto-tuned to all hell like most of the crappy pop music that's, um, popular today. I'm looking at you Rebecca Black*. Here she is with "Notice Me". So notice her already.


*Sometimes Twitter cracks me up. The other day #BellatrixLestrange was trending. Seemed odd to me. A villain from the Harry Potter series trending on Twitter. Turns out folks were using the tag to bemoan the fact that she killed the wrong Black. Genius.

Well, I've heard the first two, but... I'm not quite sure what to make of Alexa Ray Joel. The song is... pretentious. She's cute, though. Eh. Not likely to make a playlist of mine, either way.

Sybil - I know. I go back and forth with her and that song. Most times it annoys me, but sometimes I find myself humming it. And the beginning sounds way too much like that George Michaels song...

The Alexa ray Joel song is catchy, but I can't say that I like it, necessarily. I'm guessing it's supposed to funny? But I don't think it's quite funny enough.

Earlsie, a show????

How did I miss this? I need to know when your next episode is airing.

B.E. Earl said...

Paticus - I'm positive it's supposed to be funny.

Candy - Every Sunday night at 9PM EST, but we are doing a very special episode this Thursday night at 8PM EST to honor Opening Day. And yes...I picked the Sawx to win it all this year. Crap.

alexa's face looks too much like billy's... freaks me out.

p.s. you just didnt out the ending of harry potter, did you? The last movie isnt even out yet.

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - The events which I spoke of happened at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. So no worries. And I thought the 1st half of the last film came out months ago?

hello haha narf said...

if she weren't the daughter of famous people we wouldn't even notice her. that sounds much meaner than i want it to. sorry, alexa ray. didn't mean to.

i have heard the name rebecca black because it was all over twitter, but i don't know why everyone is talking about her only to complain and i sure as shit ain't gonna waste the time to google her. people amaze me.

hmmmm...i seem kinda cranky today. perhaps i shall step away from the internets for a bit...

I wouldn't mind getting on the Downeaster Alexa!

Wait...yes I would.

Now I know what Billy Joel would look like with boobies. "Oh yeah...give it to me piano man....for the longest time....start the fire...START THE FIRE!"

There ain't no island left for Islanders like me!!!

im only on book 4 so im not even reading your response...

B.E. Earl said...

Becky - Better that you stay away from Rebecca Black. It will ruin Friday for you forever.

Doggie - AYE YAI YAI!!!

Kaylen said...

I think Notice Me and It's Friday should be combined. REMIX!!!!!!!!!!

I agree on the Amy Winehouse issue. She is a mess, she has such talent and she threw it away. I hate her for that.

marty mankins said...

Adele has an amazing voice. Amy Winehouse does too, but her trainwreck of a life tends to add too many distractions.

I had no clue about Alexis Ray Joel. I need to seek out more of her music.

I have to admit, that if we can get past on the hype, Amy does have some raw talent that is hard to ignore, and she is sexy in a trashy slutty sort of way.....but I really can't stand the beehive.
