Saturday Songbird (On Sunday): Rhapsodizing via Ukulele (Happy Belated Birthday, Amanda Palmer!)

Let’s pretend I, as an organized and responsible adult, actually posted this week’s Saturday Songbird on Saturday. We good? All right then. Happy Belated Birthday to the one and only, Amanda Fucking Palmer. One of my favorite songs of hers is the “Ukulele Anthem.” I can never stay sad listening to that song. And when… Read More Saturday Songbird (On Sunday): Rhapsodizing via Ukulele (Happy Belated Birthday, Amanda Palmer!)

Saturday Songbird: Beck’s Saying What I’m Feeling

Beck might be a Scientologist, but damn can he make good music (or at least could). If we were to compile a millennial music album – “Now That’s What I Call Millennial”? – this song would definitely be on it. Maybe I’m projecting. Maybe this would just go well on an album of my life. Hm. Eres un perdedor,… Read More Saturday Songbird: Beck’s Saying What I’m Feeling

Saturday Songbird: Amanda Palmer’s Kickass, Authentic “Machete”

I try not to feature a musician or a music group more than once, but Amanda Palmer is what my spirit animal strives to be, so I’d be remiss not to listen to my heart in sharing her work again. Recently, she released a Patreon-funded song inspired by and dedicated to a deceased best friend… Read More Saturday Songbird: Amanda Palmer’s Kickass, Authentic “Machete”

Saturday Songbird: I’m Gonna Fight ’em Off (Dead Week Blues)

I don’t have much to say for this week’s Saturday Songbird. It’s dead week starting this coming Monday and my brain is very much deceased. So just take it away, Postmodern Jukebox, with your amazing rendition of “Seven Nation Army.” [Seriously, please. Take all the finals away.] Catch up on past editions of Saturday Songbird! (Or… Read More Saturday Songbird: I’m Gonna Fight ’em Off (Dead Week Blues)

Saturday Songbird: “Sorry,” Beliebers – This Version’s Got Him Beat

I’m not gonna lie – nor am I going the “guilty pleasure” route: I’ve found recent Justin Bieber tunes to be quite catchy. While he’s still pretty vacuous, he’s come a long way from his teeny-bop “Baby, baby, baby, ooo” days. However, I’m not here to feature the Biebs – I’m here to feature Siddhant… Read More Saturday Songbird: “Sorry,” Beliebers – This Version’s Got Him Beat

Saturday Songbird: When We Kiss… It’s Not What You Think (Valentine’s Weekend Special)

It’s Valentine’s weekend, everyone. So go out and get lucky, whether it’s with your somewhat significant other(s) or with a carton of Ben and Jerry’s. Just do it. Here’s a cute and irreverent song by the witty and lyrically talented Matt Mulholland, “When We Kiss.” He reminds me of Michael Buble, if Buble had a New… Read More Saturday Songbird: When We Kiss… It’s Not What You Think (Valentine’s Weekend Special)

Saturday Songbird: It’s Business, It’s Business Time!

Welcome to another edition of Saturday Songbird, where we feature a song that either represents our zeitgeist of the week (“zeit-week?”) or just titillated our ears/brains recently. This was another semi-stressful week with midterms plus the starting of a new job (a retail one at that). So for all y’all else who had a semi-stressful… Read More Saturday Songbird: It’s Business, It’s Business Time!
