R & B REDUX: A CHANGE IS GONNA COME

January 12, 2009

One of the best cover versions of a great R & B classic you’ll ever hear. This is Seal’s cover of “A Change Is Gonna Come” and old Sam Cooke tune. Seal gives a masterful touch here, breathing new life into an old classic.

“A Change Is Gonna Come” was a 1964 release by R&B singer-songwriter Sam Cooke, written and first recorded in 1963 and released under the RCA Victor label shortly after his death in late 1964. It was only a modest hit for Cooke in comparison with his previous singles yet the song came to exemplify the sixties Civil Rights Movement.

So the story goes, Cooke was impressed when he heard Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" in 1963 and was fascinated that such a song about racism could come from a white man. While on tour in May 1963, and after speaking with sit-in demonstrators in Durham, North Carolina following a concert, Cooke returned to his tour bus and wrote the first draft of what would later become "A Change Is Gonna Come."

It is said the song reflects two major incidents in Cooke’s life. The first was the death of Cooke's eighteen-month-old son, Vincent, who died of an accidental drowning in June of 1963. The second major incident came on October 8, 1963, when Cooke and his band tried to register at a "whites only" motel in Shreveport, Louisiana and were summarily arrested for disturbing the peace.

HEY, WANNA BUY THE PAPER MISTER?

January 11, 2009

This video is too long (producer could have used some quick fade-in/fade-out edits to get same point across in a lot less time) and not all that funny but VERY instructive…if you happen to be a dying industry attempting to peddle its wares to a younger audience; an audience that has never known a world without computers, the Internet, color TV, cell phones, iPods, texting, video games, eBay etc.

This video should be a SOP training tool for every Marketing VP at every old school, dead tree newspaper in the nation. They should show this thing to all new phone salespeople as a classic case of WHAT NOT DO in trying to sell a print newspaper product to a big segment of the population.

The fact that newspaper telemarketing departments are still using this sort of lame 1970's kind of pitch is a mind blower. Someone in a corner office with a view just does not get it. Watch this video closely and you'll see the most important element in the entire marketing process is missing here. Can you guess what it is?

LOS LONELY BOYS. DOIN' IT THEIR WAY

January 10, 2009

We couldn't care less that Los Lonely Boys are no longer the cult hit band out of Texas that few people knew about. Sure they may be over exposed pop icons now (or getting close to it) but these guys still float a great boat on most everything they do.

If these three young men aren't a great (and classic) American fusion band that brings true originality to the Rock genre then such a band doth not exist. This video is the band doing the acoustic version of "My Way." CLICK READ MORE TO START VIDEO

SWEET AS TUPELO HONEY

January 09, 2009

It is a bit hard to figure out just what music category this guy fits into. Jazz? Blues? Jazz, blues and folk music combined? Fact is though when you listen to Van Morrison's body of work the past decade or so you know right quick this man has gone light years (as an artist) past what he was doing as a pop singer lo' those many years ago.

His creative juice never dried up. Morrison has, to a large degree, created his own music genre with the passage of time. No one really fits into his space but him. And that is saying something in the music business. It also says a lot that Morrison still has a solid recording and live performance music career thirty years past his pop music icon fame. Quick now, how many other pop stars can you say that about? Click READ MORE to bring up the video screen icon.

RAT LOVES HIS CAT AND THAT'S WHERE IT'S AT

January 09, 2009

This is really odd. Cool too. A rat who’s stone cold in love with this cat and the cat is, well, okay with it. There’s one scene where the rat kisses the cat right on the lips. Go figure. Kinda neat “sworn enemies” relationship. The rat’s name is Penut and the cat is Ranji. Click READ MORE to bring the video icon up.
