In honor of today’s total eclipse in the United States, I thought I’d find you some eclipse themed songs to listen to.

Music Monday! Portugal. The Man

Portugal. The Man is actually five men from Portland Oregon who met in high school in Alaska. The band’s name came from the idea that they wanted it to have a bigger than life feel, so they named it after a country. This song which is quite popular in the states is from their album¬†Woodstock,¬†which was released earlier this year. It’s a weird video. I don’t claim to understand it.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! The Most Viewed Video in YouTube History

Yes, in spite of all the cat videos and videos of people doing stupid things, just two days ago this video became the most watched of all time on YouTube. Not even Psy’s Gangam Style can boast the 3 billion views Despacito has.

You can also find a version featuring Justin Bieber if you’d like. Chances are though that it won’t get as many views on my blog as #Babymetal with Rob Halford did last week. Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! The Strangest Thing I’ve Ever Seen on a Music Stage

I saw this occur live, in person last year at the Alternative Press Music Awards and I still can’t get it out of my head. It was the weirdest musical performance I’ve ever seen. Rob Halford of Judas Priest performed with #Babymetal , a trio of young Japanese women singing with heavy metal backing music.  The real performance starts about one minute into the performance. Former heavy metal icon Rob Halford joins the trio at the 7:40 mark.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! The Best Musician Ever

A new song by my 19 year old son. He did every instrument, every note, all vocals and produced it himself. It’s got an alternative, club vibe to it. It starts with a slow build and then gets rolling. Enjoy!

Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! Paramore covering Drake?

Here it is from the BBC Radio’s Live Lounge!

Enjoy and have a great Monday! ~Phil
