It Hasn’t Happened Yet

This is more a spoken word track than a song, but I love it nonetheless. From William Shatner‘s 2004 album Has Been, produced by Ben Folds (who also plays the piano here), it’s a melancholy mediation on aging, success, and personal satisfaction (or lack thereof).

About A Girl

First off, let me say right up front that I am not a huge Nirvana fan. For some of you reading, that statement might seem like blasphemy.

Extreme looked like another hair metal band, but this track […]

Beds Are Burning

This track is from Australian band Midnight Oil‘s sixth album, Diesel and Dust. The single became their international breakthrough 25 years ago, and though it’s about returning Australian land to the Aboriginal people, it’s actually relevant to present day America. One week from today, on August 25, about 2,000 acres of land in the Black Hills of South Dakota are […]
