My Top 10 Artists That Aren’t in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but Should Be

During the final week of June, my daughters and I went on a really cool road trip. We went to Ithaca, NY for a college visit for my oldest and to explore the gorgeous gorges there. Then we went to Niagara Falls and rode The Maid of the Mist and viewed the falls from about […]

My Top 10 “Weird Al” Yankovic Albums

For the past two April Fools’ Day, I devoted my Top 10 list “Weird Al” Yankovic, counting down his best parodies in 2016 and his best original songs in 2017. This year, I decided to count down his best albums, particularly the 14 studio albums (no compilations) he has released in his glorious Rock-and-Roll-Hall-of-Fame-worthy career. […]

My Top 10 Songs of 2017

I’m gonna start this special year-end list by saying that 2017 was a wonderful year for pop music. This is my fourth year posting this countdown on the blog (and my 34th year doing it), and I don’t think I’ve had a more challenging time choosing the top song—or even narrowing it down to ten […]

My Top 10 Holiday Pop Songs

It’s the first day of the month, so it’s time for a Top 10 list! Being December, let’s go with something holiday themed again. Last year it was Christmas movies, and the year before that was Christmas TV specials. Let’s go with a music list this year, but let’s not limit it to Christmas. There […]

Obsession, by OK Go

If you follow this blog, you know I’m a big fan of the band OK Go and their awesomely creative music videos. A few days ago, they released their newest video—for their song Obsession—and like most of their other videos, it’s impressive. Click on the image to go to YouTube and watch it: My criteria […]

My Top 10 Phineas and Ferb Songs

Like this time last year, I enlisted the help of my three daughters to compile this mid-summer Top 10 list. This is far and away the most difficult list I’ve ever had to compile for this blog, and that’s why I needed the girls’ help. And we also needed enough time to compile the list, […]

My Top 10 “Weird Al” Yankovic Original Songs

Last April Fools’ Day, I counted down my Top 10 “Weird Al” Yankovic parodies. It was a great list, and it fit the day perfectly. Apart from writing and recording such inspired parodies, he also does what are called “style parodies”, where he lampoons a particular band or artist’s style of music. It’s not changing […]

My Top 10 Songs of 2016

Every summer, I run a game for my Facebook friends where I choose a decade and quote a different song every day. The first person to correctly name the song and artist get a point each, and at the end of the summer, the friend with the most points wins bragging rights. Been doing that […]

The One Moment, by OK Go

I’m a big fan of the band OK Go, so much that back in February, I devoted a Top 10 list to their awesomely creative music videos. Not even two weeks after I posted that list, they released a new video that was so incredible I had to revise my list. Well, yesterday they released […]

My Top 10 “Weird Al” Yankovic Song Parodies

I’m doing another music related Top 10 list this month, and I figured April Fools’ Day would be the perfect day to celebrate one of my all-time favorite musical heroes. “Weird Al” Yankovic. I’ve seen him twice in concert, and I own all fourteen of his studio albums. Honestly, I think he deserves to be […]
