    Another song by Joan Osborne, and probably the one that brought her into the public attention. And just in case you didn't know, this song was written by Prince.

    Like every other artist, Prince had himself been influenced by and learned from other artists before him, and so he himself in turn wrote a number of songs for other artists while using fake names — e.g. "Christopher" and "Alexander Nevermind" — and without asking for any royalties. He said that it was his way of giving something in return for what he himself had gotten from those who had gone before him.

    Apart from "One Of Us", he also wrote "Manic Monday" for The Bangles and "Nothing Compares 2 U" for Sinéad O'Connor, and there are many more such gems which were penned by him under some obscure alias for other artists. And of course, he was also the songwriter and producer of Vanity 6, Sheila E., and — at the time of the movie Purple Rain — of Appolonia 6 and Morris Day & The Time.

    I don't normally post this kind of stuff but I just came across these guys and was blown away. A super group I dare say not many people have heard of.

    If you're into prog rock and or jazz this may be up your alley. For reference the horn/wind player is the guy from The Mars Volta (well 3 of their albums at least).

    When I was a teenager — mainly in the mid-to-late 1970s — there were musically two camps at school: you were either into rock, or you were into disco. And the latter were only a small minority, because those who were into rock looked down on disco and on those who liked it.

    Myself, I was never into one camp or the other, because to me it was all music, and I loved whatever sounded good to me. I used to record music off of the radio — if the DJ could keep his mouth shut long enough to allow for that — or off of borrowed tape cassettes with an 18-cm reel tape recorder, which, when set at a speed of 9.5 cm/sec, gave me 90 minutes of non-stop music per side.

    Then came the 1980s, and with it, the first of my college years — I went back to college (and in a completely different direction) in the early 1990s — and that was also the time that my parents started allowing me to go out to the discos on Saturday night. Up until that age, my parents had kept me on a tight leash — well, they were still trying to run my life to a large extent afterward in other ways as well, for that matter.

    So anyway, I was about 19-20 years old then. I moved out of my parents' house at 22. Eloped, basically — it's long story. But so anyway, this was the early-to-mid 1980s, and there was some really good music going round in those days.

    Yes, it's disco — or funk, if you will. Yes, it was commercial radio stuff. But who cares, if it sounds good? So here's some of it. Enjoy the blast from the past.

    Okay, that last one's a bit of a cheat, because I'm not sure when that song was recorded, and to be honest, I only first heard it in the late 1990s.

    "Romancing The Wind" - Ray Bethell

    No technology here, just talent and experience, that in this case, comes with age. I've never seen anything like it!

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    Anyone remember this band?

    Singer Geoff Tate was probably one of the best hard rock singers of his time. He was actually a baritone, but he had an enormous vocal range. Unfortunately, it is said that his talent went to his head, and that this is why the band eventually split up.

    I think that's what happened to Scott Stapp of Creed. But I've read he had an undiagnosed bipolar condition. I don't think that's uncommon among 'big personalities'.

    He got weathered...
