Week 11 of 52 Weeks - Apple Blossom (White Stripes, 2000)

Week 11 - Apple Blossom, The White Stripes. 

De Stijl was the first album I heard of the White Stripes and it still remains one of my favorite albums by them.  I still remember the first time I saw them live, it really blew my mind to see two people rocking out and putting on such a great show!  It was a lot of fun to watch them.  They influenced me quite a bit as I was starting my own solo project just then and their live show is one of my favorites of all time.


Week 6 of 52 Weeks - The Man Who Sold the World (David Bowie, 1970)

What can I say about David Bowie?  The man was a visionary, a genius and a true artist.  It’s his otherworldly-ness that attracted me to his work.  He also told such great stories through his songs and his style moved with the times but yet he remained, well…David Bowie.  This is one of my favorite songs.  Thank you, Bowie.  We miss you.


Week 5 of 52 Weeks - Starfish And Coffee (Prince, 1987)

Week 5 - Starfish and Coffee, Prince

It was indeed a very sad day when we all heard the news about Prince's passing.  A true genius, he was really inspirational all around.  There are so many songs that I love, but this one is my personal favorite.  It was written by Prince and Susannah Melovin (sister of Wendy from the Revolution). The girl in the song, Cynthia Rose is someone Susannah knew when she was young.  

I'd like to dedicate this to the ”Cynthia" in all of us - the happy soul that reminds you that there's magic everywhere.

Thank you, Prince.
