Goodbye to Another Year - The Urban Voodoo Machine

They actually released this song and video a couple weeks ago but I wanted to save my sharing of it for New Year's Eve. And guess what! It's New Year's Eve! (Confession: I actually hate New Year's Eve/Day.) This is, like everything else The Urban Voodoo Machine does, a party in a song. And the topper is Lady Ane playing the sousaphone. How can you not love a sexy lady blowing a giant horn like that?

My Favorite Time of Year - The Florin Street Band

It's been awhile again. Sorry for that. The holidays are keeping me pretty busy this year.

Speaking of holidays ... I LOVE CHRISTMAS! I do. The whole season of Christmas from Thanksgiving through the Solstice and right on up to the Big Day of Christmas itself. It really is my favorite time of year. And I love a good cheesy song. It's sort of my guilty pleasure. So I was quite happy this morning when I came across this song. It just makes me ... happy. Plain & simple. (And did you notice the tuba? How can you not love a tuba?)

You should really check out the website for the story behind this song. I'd try to nutshell it here, but really wouldn't do it justice. Just click the link below and read it for yourself.

So So Fresh - Nico Vega

Oh, sadness! Nico Vega is coming to my town again this weekend ... and I can't go ... again. *cry* Between my own rehearsals and family obligations it's just not happening. The one time I did have the opportunity, Aja ended up with vocal injury and had to cancel the part of the tour that included my city. Luckily for the world her voice is all back to mesmerizing, thank The Powers That Be.

While I pout, here's another fabulous acoustic performance:
