My Funky Year in Music: 18,599 tracks, 4,188 artists, 5,533 albums (according to Last.FM)

with one comment

My Year 2016 on Last.FMBecause I am very much into statistics, I still like using Last.FM, a music database which keeps track of the songs I enjoy via iTunes, Internet radiostations and iPod/smartphone. According to Last.FM’s summary for 2016, I listened to 18,599 tracks by 4,188 different artists and from 5,533 different albums. That makes 55 songs a day and a total listening time of 45 days, 5 hours. Top music genres: funk, soul, country, pop, and blues.

For no reason a‘ all: My tribute to London pub rock duo Chas & Dave

with 2 comments

I am predominantly into ‚black music‘ (resp., for the more politically correct readers, into funk, soul, hip-hop, blues, and gospel), plus gutsy and/or soulful country.

Chris Isaak: Return of the Rockabilly Romeo (sowie ein paar Worte über Roy Orbison und Chris‘ Porno-Vergangenheit)

leave a comment »

Falls sich jemand fragt, was Chris Isaak dieser Tage so treibt: Er hat gestern eine wunderbare Doppel-CD mit einem Tribut ans Rhythm- & Blues-, Rockabilly- und Rock’n’Roll-Label Sun Records aus Nashville veröffentlicht. Ein Label, das Künstler wie Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison und auch einen gewissen Elvis Presley bekannt machte. Titel des Tributs: „Beyond the Sun“. Eine kleine Kostprobe gefällig?

Hacking The Hag: Getting „Forbidden Content“ From PBS, Hulu & Pandora

leave a comment »

I just published a blog post about a wonderful PBS documentary on Country great Merle “The Hag” Haggard (“Merle Haggard: Learning to Live with Myself”).

Problem: Due to licensing restrictions, you can’t watch the docu in territories like Germany (although the movie was co-produced by German company Spothouse GmbH in association with Thirteen for WNET.org). You receive the following error message: “We’re sorry, but this video is not available in your region due to rights restrictions.“
