New Wave Month Song of the Day #2 – Midnight – Yaz

Here is my absolute favorite song off Yaz’ Upstairs at Eric’s.  The song takes place just after Alison’s lover finds out that she cheated on him and he’s run off.  It’s now midnight and she’s out there searching for him in a rainstorm.  The lyrics, the mood, the voice….absolutely awesome!   Midnight Midnight, it’s raining … More New Wave Month Song of the Day #2 – Midnight – Yaz

New Wave Month Song of the Day – Ball of Confusion – Love & Rockets

Here’s a song from will.i.am’s #willpower album that could be such a hit if only it were released as a single. I reviewed it last spring and said back then that it was my favorite off the album, and it’s still on my playlist of favorite songs.  The chorus is so uplifting and Nicole Sherzinger’s … More Song of the Day – Far Away From Home – will.i.am, feat.
