May is Mental Health Awareness month and for the first song, I’d like to introduce you all to Gemini Syndrome. “Metal” music gets such a bad rap sometimes, but you’d be surprised how much meaning some of the songs pack in. “Remember We Die” packs in a plea for anyone struggling to keep holding on, as well as the reminder that there will be “plenty of time to see the other side,” so until then, “just let the light shine from your soul.”Read more

For the last week of April, we’re going back to Child Abuse Awareness. Once again, I dipped into songs from way back in my country music phase.

Welcome to spring, everyone. This song doesn’t exactly have a story to it, but I felt it was appropriate, anyway. See you all in April!

I dedicate this one to my sister, Kawanee! Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
Yesterday was International Women’s Day, and with Saint Patrick’s Day coming up, I decided to feature one of my favorite Irish songs performed by an all woman group.
I blame my love for this song entirely on my sister’s infatuation with Michael Flatley, just so you all know. Here’s the version that got me hooked:
