” What it comes down to for me is this: Will the technologies of communication in our culture, serve to enlighten us and help us to understand one another better, or will they deceive us and keep us apart?”

-Roger Waters

I was overwhelmed with excitement when I first heard Roger Waters was going to be on tour this year . Suddenly all other concerts I planned on attending this year became a blimp, all I wanted to do was attend this magnificent concert featuring Pink Floyd´s own Roger Waters. This tour is based on the album ¨The Wall¨ probably one of the best, if not, their best album. It also appears to be a new production addressing the quote in the beginning. Roger’s last production of “The Wall” included people like; Sinead O’Connor, Bryan Adams, Cyndi Lauper, Joni Mitchel and more. I wonder who he will include this year!?!? Roger Water´s last tour was in 2007-2008, unfortunately I couldn´t attend 😦 so i cant give you an exact idea of what its gonna be, but i’m pretty sure you will be able to hear the ¨Echoes¨ all the way to “The Dark Side of the Moon”.

In the first part of this post, we talked about songs that we can relate to when having problems. But I mean, what’s really a problem? I like to think, they are nothing less than opportunities to make our best out of any given situation. So instead of trying to find faults or wonder what went wrong, we should only focus on finding a solution. Because whether we like it or not, we can’t always escape from them, and life, will most certainly just continue to shove more problems down our paths.

So, look on the bright side, be wise, and know that everything happens for a reason. On the other hand there are some songs that you can’t help smile and get in a good mood every time you hear them. And is thanks to them that we are able to understand that “in every life we have some trouble, when you worry you make it double…don’t worry, be happy”

We all sometimes go through rough times, it may be having a family problem, a sickness, going through a break up, maybe we have problems with no solutions or easy answers or we are just running away from the truth because let’s face it, even though the truth means everything, it freakin hurts. Well, most of the things don’t turn out as we expect them to do so, but whatever your problem may be, let’s hope there will be someone to comfort you and give you some good advice.

The little problem is that most of the people don’t really understand what you are going through, so I think that the best thing you can do is take some time for yourself, figure it out on your own and take comfort in music. Read More

It almost seems like the Dead Weather could not wait less than a year to release a follow-up album to last year’s Horehound. Jack White (The White Stripes) and Alison Mosshart (The Kills) are back on top of this project assisted with Dan Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs). Distinguished by their down and dirty sound the band gives us a deeper insight into their morose blues inspired rock and roll.

While their first album sounded like an impromptu jam session, sea of cowards expands on this feeling adding to it a bit more production and clarity to the songs, themes and production. Read More
