Amy’s process of making Back to Black was interesting: she would record her studio work onto a CD and listen to it in her father’s cab. She wanted to hear it how the majority of people would, and made tweaks based on that medium. It spawned five hit singles, was nominated for two Grammy Awards (and won one of them) and received unanimous critical acclaim. Today you can score this album for only $5.
Start your 2017 off right by putting on some good tunes, and Heart’s “Dreamboat Annie” certainly qualifies. Admittedly Heart isn’t the first band I think of in terms of iconic 70’s rock n’ roll, but they should be more involved in the conversation than they seem to be—a very under appreciated act that has so many good records.
2016 has been another solid year for music and, in my world, getting exposed to more fun tunes from the CTT blog. Since today will be the last post of 2016, I look forward to another year of introduction to new stuff and continued exposure to hits from what seems like a past life. Today is a band from the latter—a group that sort of dominated ‘90s airplay, selling over 20 million albums to date.
When people discuss pop music, a few acts always seem to come up as the best of all time. Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince–and maybe Timberlake, or Bruno Mars for the younger music aficionados. Well the artist I’m listening to today is the most awarded female act of all time per Guinness World Records and has sold an estimated 200 million records worldwide.
When you think of musicians from New Jersey, one artist clearly pops into mind over all the rest. Yep, you know him, The Boss–Bruce Springsteen. If you’re a big fan of his, my apologies, but he is not the artist I’m listening to today. Instead, I’m focusing on another Garden State standout—a group that’s sold nearly 10 million albums in the U.S. alone.
Perhaps one of those more fascinating things about this record is who Urban wrote songs with. You may or may not remember a guy like Richard Marx from his pop music popularity of the late ‘80s/early ‘90s, but a guy like Elton John is sure to ring some bells for most music fans. He also did a couple covers on the record, which is very rare in today’s music world. The formula certainly worked, as this is Urban’s best-selling album at over 10 million sold worldwide. Today it can be yours for $5.
What if you start a band, sell a bunch of albums and become part of the mainstream, but critics don’t seem to think your music is worth listening to? How is it possible to be nominated for four Grammy Awards but all of your records have been a "C" type of rating? Today’s band has managed to do just that and today you can score their most popular album for $5.
If you’re not familiar with ska music in general, this is a great introduction. It’s faster tempo, upbeat styling with lots of brass, bass and drums. How can you resist that? For $5 dollars today, give a new genre a try and enjoy the ride.
No two Eels albums sound alike—and when you see them live, no two performances are equal either. While this album is more along the pop lines, it’s certainly not Britney or boy-band fodder. It created quite a stir at the 2000 DNC, and if you've never tried the Eels before, this is a good one to start with (and today you can score it for only $5!).
Sometimes the best music is when you try out something new and this album is awesome. I think anyone who enjoys folks, bluegrass or acoustic rock type genres will find this appealing. On a day in which Amazon will make millions on quasi-sales, stick it to ‘em by only paying $5 bucks for this album—it’s worth at least double that.
