Rock is so much fun.

"Rock is so much fun. That's what it's all about--filling up the chest cavities and empty kneecaps and elbows." - Hendrix

Beno suggested this stellar song. Thanks Beno!

Andrew had a great suggestion as well- the band Eagles of Death Metal and described them as being very White Stripes-esque. I think you if you like the Black Keys, you'll like this band and this song.

You know how I love the mashups. The smoothness of Nas's voice (and lyrics) and the melodies made by John Smith's acoustic are practically enough to put you to sleep. These KMT remixes are freakishly good. If you like them, download them at the link below this video. You won't regret it.

To Kay Maloney: The Sea and Cake -- this might be my favorite so far. ALMOST makes me want to be 14 again.

Tom Waits- Ice Cream Man
Tom Waits, born in 1949, has a voice aptly described as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon and left hanging in a smoke house for a few months." He has done practically everything imaginable with his music from writing for musical plays to winning an Academy Award for his album "One from the Heart." His all-encompassing sound and soulful musical storytelling make Tom Waits a unique and timeless composer.
