You Light Up My Life – Debby Boone

You Light Up My Life – Debby Boone

Ten weeks. Ten long weeks. That’s how many weeks “You Light Up My Life” by Debby Boone spent at the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100. At the time, that was the longest-lasting #1 hit of all time. Better than Elvis. Better than The Beatles. Better than everyone, in fact, until Boyz II Men landed at #1 for 13 weeks with “End of the Road” in 1991. That’s 70 days. That’s 2.5 months.

Well, with an artist so supremely gifted like Winehouse, it’s possible and even likely she could … Read entire article »

What I Am – Edie Brickell & New Bohemians

What I Am – Edie Brickell & New Bohemians

Some artists sound connected, even though there may be generations and continents between them. Madeleine Peyroux’s 2000’s records are dead ringers for the sound of Billie Holliday circa 1935. Amy Winehouse channels the ghosts of 1960s Motown for her one-hit wonder hit “Rehab.” The guy in Alias singing “More Than Words Can Say” sounds just like the guy in Sheriff when he sings “When I’m With You.” (Oh wait, they are the same guy: Freddy … Read entire article »
