Where Has All The Music Gone...

Every now and then a song just sticks and it is forever stuck in your mind. Over the last 3 months I have heard this song almost everyday on Sirius Satelite Radio. I love it and will be buying the album soon.

Somewhere over the last few years music has become boring to me. Very few new artists and songs really hit home. Over the last 4 months I have had Sirius I have rediscovered music. I first I couldn't believe that my wife would buy me a satellite radio nor did I think that I should pay $150 a year to listen. In just a few short months however I have become a fan. The variety is incredible and it is so refreshing not to have endless commercials and radio lame radio dj's who aren't funny blathering on about nothing. I don't think that it was that I was tired of adding new music to my collection as so much as the local radio stations were beating the hell out of crappy songs.

I have spent much of the last 10 years listening to 101.9/107.9 The End and over the last year they have really begun to suck big. My advice to them is to return to the early days. Play music people used to love to hear you play, Example like new wave, alternative etc. You're A to Z weekends used to be awesome because you played all the great things hidden in your collection. Unfortunately You have played to death Cold Play and John Mayer. Return to 80's and 90's classics mixed with new stuff but not the same new stuff that every other damn radio station in Utah is playing. Another free piece of advice FIRE Chelsea. SHE SUCKS, She isn't funny and has ruined the Chunga and Mister Show. Every time she comes on the show I change the dial. She sucks. and is a fun killer. I must commend Tyson Web the other day when I peaked in for a visit he played Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt". It was quite refreshing. Too bad his co-host some "Britney wanna-be" girl had never heard of it nor of the Nine Inch Nails version. That just might be the problem hiring DJ's who have no musical experience in your station's genre. Until 101.9 The End changes I will be listening to the New Wave and ALT Nation Stations of Sirius.

For those who are interested..

Plain White T's "Hey There Delilah"
Hear the song and See the Video Here

Hey there Delilah
What's it like in New York City?
I'm a thousand miles away
But girl tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Time Square can't shine as bright as you
I swear it's true

Hey there Delilah
Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice it's my disguise
I'm by your side

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me girl
Someday I'll pay the bills with this guitar
We'll have it good
We'll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I've got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I'd write it all
Even more in love with me you'd fall
We'd have it all

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
Delilah I can promise you
That by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you're to blame

Hey there Delilah
You be good and don't you miss me
Two more years and you'll be done with school
And I'll be making history like I do
You know it's all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here's to you
This ones for you

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me.
