I first heard of Jeff when i friend from school kept banging on about him. "He is the greatest loss of his generation" he would exclaim. " I can't believe you have never heard his music" he would go on and on at me. I shrugged him off because he was borderline annoying me at … Continue reading Jeff Buckley – Grace
I remember back in 2004, it was the year of My Chemical Romance. All the fans died their hair black and would bravely wear eyeliner to school.

Just love that melody on the chorus.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uz3QKfkXsugThis video is part of a project … Continue reading Muse – Black Holes And Revelations
The beautiful singer songwriter gets the ukulele treatment. She had a number of stage names before settling on Lana Del Rey. Before she became a household name, Lana Del Rey was known as Lizzy Grant. (Her full name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant.) But before settling on her current moniker, the singer toyed with a number … Continue reading Lana Del Ray – Born To Die
