    "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be" is a 1971 song performed by Carly Simon, and the lead single from her self-titled debut album Carly Simon (1971). Her friend and frequent collaborator Jacob Brackman wrote the lyrics and Simon wrote the music. The song reached No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Elektra staffers were worried the single was too emotionally complex to be released as Simon's first single. With subject matter that includes "the parents' bad marriage; the friends' unhappy lives; the boyfriend's enthusiasm for marriage but controlling nature; the woman's initial resistance and ultimate...

    This month we are marking the centenary of Nelson Riddle, perhaps the greatest of all arrangers of popular song. That's what Frank Sinatra thought, and we cite "I've Got the World on a String" and "I've Got You Under My Skin" as merely the obvious examples. But Sinatra and Riddle rescued a lot of other songs over the years - songs that had once been hits and then been forgotten, songs that had been in hit shows but no one had noticed, songs that had been in the stage version but dropped for the movie adaptation... But they rarely transformed...

    I recently purchased a new computer, and over the last few weeks I've been transferring files from the old one to the new one. While doing this I've been combing through some of these files and checking to ensure that they will work with new versions of various applications I commonly use. One of the things that caught my eye was the "Play Count" number for each of the MP3 and MP4 files I am moving from one computer to the other. As I went through these tracks on iTunes, I decided to rank them in the order of their...

    The Look Of Love Is in your eyes The look your smile can't disguise The Look Of Love Is saying so much more...A couple of decades back, "The Look of Love" was indeed saying so much more: George Will cited the presence on the hit parade of Diana Krall's CD of the same name as one of the hopeful cultural trends of America post-9/11. In The Wall Street Journal, Terry Teachout agreed. He'd been sitting in a New York McDonald's whose radio had been tuned to some young persons' station - and, instead of the usual ghastly caterwauling, "The Look...

  • Relax! Eighties pop is the best genre for reducing anxiety - but techno can make you MORE worried, study reveals

    Eighties pop is the best musical genre for reducing blood pressure, due to its 'positive nostalgia', researchers have found. Turkish researchers hooked up 1,540 volunteers aged between 18 and 65 to blood pressure and heart rate monitors and played them a variety of music on Spotify. Music from the hit TV series It's a Sin, which is heavy with tunes from the likes of Eighties legends Wham!, Pet Shop Boys and Duran Duran, were more effective at reducing blood pressure – an indicator of low anxiety – than 10 other genres. Other genres effective at decreasing blood pressure were Noughties...

  • "Words Of Love" - The Mamas & The Papas featuring Cass Elliot (1966)

    Youtube ^ | 08/07/2018 | TMTPMusic
    "Words of Love" was written by John Phillips, and featured Cass Elliot as the primary vocalist. It was released as a single in November 1966 (backed with a cover of Martha and the Vandellas's "Dancing in the Street"). Given the disappointing chart placement of the prior single, Look Through My Window, hopes were high that Words of Love would return the group to the upper reaches of the charts: on the week of January 21, 1967, the single fulfilled this hope, as it reached No. 5 in the United States."Words Of Love" - The Mamas & The Papas featuring...
