I was trying to find the original video for this, but this live performance might even be better.

It’s been a while since I’ve done this. To get the thumbnails and all, I have to go into WordPress, and that’s kind of a pain. But I care because you do! And the eye candy of the day is from Hayley Williams, singer of Paramore. She’s got a great voice and is a beautiful […]

It’s somewhat difficult to post Windy & Carl on a Song of the Day installation. Most of their best songs last more than 10 minutes, which is more than what YouTube allows for a single post. But here is a song that barely squeaks under the limit. Also, it’s one of my favorite songs by […]

Watch out, this song might give you diabetes. I found this a few weeks ago by accident. I was looking for a Voice of the Beehive video and this was one of the related clips. At first I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. But the more I listened, the more I loved […]
