  • "Frozen" Director Jennifer Lee Apologizes to Parents for "Let It Go"

    NBC Los Angeles ^ | 12-16-14 | Francesca Bacardi
    No one wants to let go of "Let It Go" more than parents, and "Frozen" director Jennifer Lee has become brutally aware of that fact. The Oscar-winning director is now apologizing for the phenomenon that swept (and continues to sweep) the nation because adults are fed up with the animated film. "A year ago, I'd meet people who, when they found out who I was, they'd say, 'Oh, we love the songs! We sing them all the time.' Now they're like, 'Yep, we're still listening to those songs,'" Lee tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I've gone from, 'Thank you,' to, 'Sorry!'"...

    FiveThirtyEight ^ | December 12, 2014 | Walt Hickey
    On Oct. 24 at 6:24 p.m., Magic 96.5 in Birmingham, Alabama, flipped its “St. Nick” switch. The soft-rock radio station began playing all holiday music all the time. Magic 96.5 (WMJJ-FM) was one of the first stations in 2014 to give listeners exactly what they want at year’s end: more the Madonna than Madonna. In fact, there’s an entire library of songs that are in constant demand now, but people cringe if they hear them months before. Radio’s wall-to-wall holiday format is a recent development. Of course, stations in the past played some Christmas music on Dec. 24 and 25,...

    Recently I had a fairly pedestrian thought, a thought I've been having on and off for 10 years: "I want to put some music onto my portable music listening device." This used to be a relative cinch: I'd put the music on iTunes, plug in my iPod, and drag the songs over. Now, anytime I dare hook my iPhone up to a computer, there's software that needs updating, apps and photos I need to clear away for extra room, and esoteric rules regarding what is allowed to "sync." After finally getting an album onto my phone, another software update a...

    Bob Dylan has announced a new album called Shadows in the Night, which is comprised of covers of songs once sung by Frank Sinatra. It's his first since 2012's Tempest. It's out February 3 via Columbia, and you can check out the full tracklist below. Dylan produced it under his Jack Frost alias. Listen to "Full Moon and Empty Arms" below. In a press release, Dylan said: It was a real privilege to make this album. I've wanted to do something like this for a long time but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a five-piece...

Tomorrow I would like to consider the great Parousia, wherein the saved enter into glory with the Lord.Regarding the “Great and...

    Thursday’s big announcement for the 24th James Bond movie — Spectre, to be directed by Skyfall’s Sam Mendes, and once again featuring Daniel Craig as the British super spy — sadly lacked details of the most important element of any Bond movie. No, not the Bond girl. The Bond theme. From Dr. No on, each Bond movie has had a distinctive theme that attempts to set the stage for what’s to come. At their best, the songs are as dramatic and exciting as the movies themselves, but… well, let’s just say that not every song is at its best and leave...

    Celebrating the Spirituals: Sober but Serene on Themes of Judgment By: Msgr. Charles PopeI’ve often been impressed at the ability of the old African-American spirituals to treat serious subjects in a clear, memorable, and almost joyful way. This is true even of very weighty matters like sin and judgment.  And while we are here in the opening weeks of Advent, quite focused on the Second Coming of Jesus to judge the world by fire, we do well to look at some of the creative lines from different spirituals that articulate this theme.It can be very helpful to the preacher, teacher,...
  • ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ Is The Worst Christmas Song Ever

    The Federalist ^ | December 3, 2014 | Leslie Loftis
    The worst Christmas song ever isn’t actually a Christmas song. It’s just a song that uses Christmas in the hook and was popular when it was released. So Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas” gets played every year starting at the end of November. Every year, I think that the awfulness comes in part from the refreshed shock of dreadful lyrics I’ve not heard in 11 months. Instead, my loathing of the song grows through the season and year by year. So as it starts playing on repeat—and the 30th anniversary edition regales us with two versions this season—a...

    'Ian McLagan of the Faces and Small Faces has died at the age of 69, after suffering a stroke. Ultimate Classic Rock reports that the legendary keyboard player suffered a "massive stroke" and passed away in hospital in Austin, Texas. McLagan was born in 1945 in Middlesex. He joined the Small Faces in 1965 and continued to play with the band after they changed their name to the Faces in 1969, when Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood joined. The Faces split in 1975, and McLagan began work as a session musician, playing with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne,...

Contrary to the Lil' Abner/Jubilation T. Cornpone approach, Alexander Courage's vastly underappreciated treatment of musical themes are of unknown, literal authenticity. The approach in this piece seems a combination of Cecil Sharp and Frederick Delius.

It used a certain neurological pathway; it got to be difficult to play in the written key—the customary neurological pathway was different, "too simple".What is perfect pitch? Neuroscientist Diana Deutsch at UC San Diego found that people whose native language is tonal—Chinese—have a higher propensity to have perfect pitch.

For historical and acoustical reasons... Vanguard leads in this field — a page on its website shows thumbnail images for 123 albums created in the club — but there have also been fine recent dispatches from Jazz Standard, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola and elsewhere. Still, those are albums released on separate record labels. The perpetual challenge of running a successful jazz club, and the equally daunting proposition of starting a record label,...

A new study has revealed that listening to sad songs can improve a person’s emotional wellbeing as well as make us feel at peace and nostalgic. It found that most people experience more than three emotions when listening to sad songs, which provoke a more complex reaction than happy pop songs.

    Here's a full length (12:04) version of Papa Was A Rolling Stone by the Temptations in high quality evidently played off vinyl. This longer version has a very long instrumental introduction and a long bridge at the midpoint. The musicianship impresses me. A very haunting melody with a string section and brass, rare in music nowadays. Since I know little about the recording industry, I have to ask the intelligentsia (a big word for FReepers), what techniques were used in the early 1970s to create such a sound. I presume it was recorded in the rather modest facilities of Motown...

One thing I couldn’t bring myself to declutter (OK, throw out - let’s stop dressing it up with poncey buzzwords) were my old mixtapes. I’ll probably never play them again. Indeed, I’ve barely got the means to do so - my last remaining cassette deck nearly got decluttered too. But just rummaging through them sent me tumbling down a retro rabbit hole. There were tapes made for summers, Christmases, road trips, festivals and dirty weekends. Tapes I made for old...

    ST. LOUIS, Missouri — If the protests in Ferguson and St. Louis in recent months have an anthem, it isn’t “We Shall Overcome,” or “Wade in the Water,” or any other civil rights-era song. It’s a darker, more confrontational song – Lil Boosie’s “F*** the Police.” When the chorus of Lil Boosie’s song wasn’t blaring on a giant sound system carted through the crowd at night, it showed up in chants or printed on posters. As night fell, the protests morphed into a party, with demonstrators dancing out on the street and on top of cars. With few ways for...

They were hot, noisy, temperamental and devilishly hard to program. And they couldn’t do much. Then along came Dr. Bob Moog who figured out how to tame electricity with printed circuits and oscillators. His experiments begat the first commercially viable synthesizers. But they came in pieces called modules that had to be roped together with patch cords. What you see in the picture is a thousand times less powerful than what you can...

    Michael Brown protesters interrupted the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra's concert on Saturday night, causing a brief delay in the performance at Powell Symphony Hall. The orchestra and chorus were preparing to perform Johannes Brahms' Requiem just after intermission when two audience members in the middle aisle on the main floor began singing an old civil rights tune, "Which Side are You on?" They soon were joined, in harmony, by other protesters, who stood at seats in various locations on the main floor and in the balcony. The protesters then unfurled three hand-painted banners and hung them from the Dress Circle...

    Illinois Freepers, I'll be at Eureka College on 10/30 showing our film "Rockin' the Wall," about music's part in bringing down the Iron Curtain. Check with Eureka for the time, but I'm pretty sure the show is free. I'll be there for the Q&A and booksigning. I am scheduled to have the film in Chicago at the Theater for the Arts associated with the Polish American Film Festival on 12/1, but as of now, I'm about two sponsors short of covering all costs there. If you are interested, and can help, let me know. Sponsors get on-screen credit; credit on...

    From the album, "20th Century Blues", by Robin Trower. This is one of the most haunting and beautiful electric guitar tracks that you will ever hear. Not at all what some might expect from this old master of heavy metal rock. Click on the play button in the video screen to listen.
