Katy Perry- Witness

First of all, I'm not a huge fan of Katy Perry. I like some of her early hits, but less and less of each new era. By 2017? The thought of picking up Witness never crossed my mind. I'd seen the music video for the new single, "Bon Appetit". Pretty good and fun... until the … Continue reading Katy Perry- Witness

"Let's Stay Engaged" is one of my … Continue reading “Let’s Stay Engaged”- The Tragically Hip

“Bohemian Rhapsody”- Queen VS Bruce Dickinson and Montserrat Caballé

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJ9rUzIMcZQ VS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qglryBZyeFc What a song, what a match! The cover is from Spanish opera singer Montserrat Caballé's Friends For Life album, featuring Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden. As amazing as it is, and great to hear one of my favorite metal vocalists tackle this classic, it doesn't surpass. The unlikely pair do an outstanding … Continue reading “Bohemian Rhapsody”- Queen VS Bruce Dickinson and Montserrat Caballé
