Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin, a pioneer of R&B and Gospel music and who rightly earned the title of Queen of Soul, died today at her home in Detroit after a battle with pancreatic cancer, according to CNN. She was 76.

The death of Franklin signifies an end to a life that was rich and robust, as colorful and full of memorable musical art as the woman herself. For over six decades, the singer’s instantly recognizable voice stretched to the emotional stratosphere and she became a titan not only in music, but provided a soundtrack, especially in her early superstar years, for a turbulent civil rights movement that was just at its peak during the late 1960s.

Celine Dion's "Ashes" From Deadpool 2

I…I did not expect to write that headline today. Or any day, for that matter. But yes indeed, an official video has been released for Céline Dion‘s new song “Ashes,” which appears on the Deadpool 2 motion picture soundtrack.

The video features Dion performing the song on a stage, joined by a Deadpool in heels dancing along to the tune. You can check it out below, along with a couple of bonus treats in a new Deadpool 2 IMAX image and a video of Ryan Reynolds in his Deadpool gear interrupting a video that longtime Wolverine Hugh Jackman was trying to record.

Remembering Musician Bob Dorough’s ‘Schoolhouse Rock!’ Legacy

schoolhouse rock

Multi-faceted and talented musician and composer Bob Dorough passed away last week. The 94-year-old is best remembered for his southern fried twangy voice on those superbly memorably catchy three-minute Schoolhouse Rock! songs, which taught generations how to do Math, English, Science, and History correctly with a verve and moxie that not only permeates throughout the songs, but also to this very day.

For many who were kids in the early 1970s, Schoolhouse Rock! was unlike any other program before or since. It became a Saturday Morning Television staple for over two decades. In terms of its look, the design, flavor, and direction, which was mired in a kind of urban meets suburban feel, the cartoon was pioneering alone. But it was the music that really sent it over the top, making it the now legendary and seminal program in the history of the medium educating children that Schoolhouse Rock! remains.

Rory Gallagher

This month saw the 70th birthday of the late Rory Gallagher, who quite possibly remains one of the greatest guitar players who ever lived, and who most of today’s generation probably never heard of. Born on March 2, 1948, the late Irishman’s down to earth appearance and aw-shucks (in the best way possible) demeanor and attitude almost masked a musical talent that literally and not arguably sometimes stood toe to toe with other heavyweights of the craft like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Jimmy Page, all of whom sang his praises and were in complete awe of his talents, like millions around the globe.

And yet, there still remains a kind of ambiguity and mystery about who the man was if one asks the John Q guitar playing public.

Marvel Studios Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther

One thing I forgot to mention in my review of Marvel’ Black Panther – something I regret not putting in – is the fact that the music is an excellent complement to the superhero film. Produced by Kendrick Lamar, the soundtrack is easily one of the most anticipated Marvel soundtracks to date. Probably because it’s one of the few that is worthwhile.

So if you want to take a listen, then I suggest you check out the Spotify embed here below for clips; the full soundtrack is streaming through the Spotify app.

In Memoriam 2017

In Memoriam 2017: Film, Television, Music, Sports, Literature, the Arts…

Every year is tough to look back on the losses of public and beloved figures, but 2017 seemed like an exceptionally hard year for losses, particularly in the music industry. Many seminal figures of their craft died either unexpectedly or suddenly, all tragically. As the heavy remorse still lingers over the loss of these titans and experts of their respective fields, there is also the comfort, if perhaps the only comfort, in knowing that their works, images, and what they left behind will endure and continue to endure, long after we are gone too. Their remembrances are like graffiti on the soul, a welcomed branding of their art and unbridled zest for life that in many cases, that will remain with us and touch us forever. Here’s a list of some notables that we lost in 2017.
