Award Show Sundays: You Should Be Dancing

For this week’s edition of Award Show Sundays, I’ve decided to not only travel back in time to 1997, but we’re going across the pond to the U.K. for the Brit Awards. That year, the people who organize that particular ceremony saw fit to honor Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, AKA The Bee Gees. I believe this marks two consecutive Sundays (or at least two out of three) that we’ve done a piece on the Gibb brothers, but this performance […]

The 5ive at 5: They Went Solo Too (#1)

Because I couldn’t think of a clear cut favorite for this week’s 5ive, I’m gonna be a lame-o and give it to a general concept: The Family Group.

Hump Day Flashback: Samantha Sang

For a time in the late Seventies, EVERYTHING the Bee Gees touched turned to gold. In late 1977/early 1978, songs written or performed by Barry, Robin and Maurice held the top spot on the Billboard Top 100 for half a year! “Night Fever”, “How Deep is Your Love”, “Stayin’ Alive”, “(Love Is) Thicker Than Water”, “Shadow Dancing” (both hits for younger brother Andy) and “If I Can’t Have You” by Yvonne Elliman were all chart-toppers. Plus, there was Frankie Valli’s […]

Tuesday Night Fever!!!

…and today’s Thursday. Oh well… I think out of the late night talk show hosts, Jimmy Fallon’s done the best job of providing “musical moments” as of late. Jimmy’s a huge music fan and he even released an album back in the day (I must admit, I loved “Idiot Boyfriend”). Tuesday night, he had Robin and Barry Gibb (the surviving Bee Gees) on his show, which was notable for two reasons. One, because Robin and Barry had a pretty heavy […]

MisenPOPic Radio Episode 4: Turn the Beat Around

In this week’s episode of MisenPOPic Radio, me and Mikey are taking all of you into the wayback machine and landing in the age of disco!! In addition to a general discussion of why disco never died, a rundown of the genre’s best songs, and a couple of book recommendations, here’s what you get: -Lots and lots of Mikey singing-including a tour de force rendition of Cheryl Lynn’s “Got to Be Real” to open the show. -A plug for Larry […]
