My son and I saw this band last week. It was my fourth time seeing them, although the first three times they were opening for other, bigger acts. It seems they’ve outgrown the opener label as my son and I waited in a line about a quarter mile long to get into the venue. The lead singer of the band, Brendon Urie, whom my son would like to model himself after, has a great voice and a brilliant dramatic flair on stage. Although the bands lyrics are catchy and clever I chose to add the video of their live cover of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, because everyone loves Bohemian Rhapsody and no one’s done it this good since Freddie Mercury passed away. Enjoy! Have a great Monday! ~Phil
For those of you new to me or who just haven’t read me the last few Mondays, this is my regular feature where I highlight a blog from someone else that I enjoy. Why the #MondayBlogs ? By hashtagging, when this title appears on Twitter Rachel Thompson of @BadRedHeadMedia and @MondayBlogs retweets hoping to spread the blog love far and wide every Monday.
Do you like music? Steve Says… is a blog that’s a lot about music and a little about Steve’s cats and Dr. Who. You don’t have to like cats or Dr. Who to like Steve’s blog, but you do have to like music. His most popular weekly feature is the weekly Monday Music Mix where Steve posts three questions and then commands his readers to:
1) Go to the music player of your choice and put it on shuffle
(2) Say the questions aloud and press play
(3) Use the song title as your answers
(4) NO CHEATING
Title your post “Steve’s Music Mix – Week…” and link back to that week’s page.
This feature is tremendously popular across the blogiverse as I see many of my peers posting their Steve Says.. question responses every Monday. Steve may wonder why he never sees my Monday Music Mix responses. The answer is that my iPod is out in my car, so I never have it handy when I’m online, but I think I may have commented on every Doctor Who reference I’ve seen.
You don’t have to participate in the Monday Music Mix to enjoy Steve’s blog though. Many of his posts are about music. A lot of them are about the Eurovision Song Contest, which is an annual song contest held amongst the European countries. Each country submits a song to be performed on live television and radio and then casts votes for other countries songs to determine the most popular song in the competition. The contest has been running and on TV every year since 1956.
So enjoy the fun and spread the musical mania far and wide by visiting Steve Says… today and participate in the Monday Music Mix.
Have a great week! ~Phil
