Yes, yes I know it’s technically 26 (in 2017) but the title is “catchy” so I’m keeping 25. Deal with it. If it helps just call it “Alternative Facts”. I’ve covered a few big albums of 1991 (scroll to the bottom of this post for a list). Today I’m going to dig a bit deeper. … Read More

April 18, 2016By ChrisMusic No Comments

We pick a topic (actually I guess I pick a topic). We pick our 3 favorite songs about said topic. We call it “My 3 Songs”. They are not the “best” but our favorite songs. I believe David summed it up nicely with his comment about how Hip Hop alone could dominate. Well played young … Read More
