H-Town- Knockin' Da Boots
Playtime is over.
I’ll see Chris Brown and Ne-Yo headline a package show tonight. Also on the bill are Dem Franchize Boyz and Lil’ Wayne. I’m eager to see if the crooners’ performances offer any indication of their prospects as pop superstars. Both young men are currently riding high, but it remains to be seen if they’ll enjoy the career longevity of their heroes Usher, R. Kelly and Michael Jackson. H-Town is an unfortunate example of hopefuls that were almost instantly supplanted by new talent. This slow jam from the Luke Campbell proteges was one of the biggest hits of 1993. Thirteen years later it’s like they never existed.
My pals Shannon and Matt issue a great new release on their Drama Club record label Tuesday. The Changes are a Chicago indie pop band. I'm especially partial to the gems at "One O'Clock" and "Five O'Clock" on this groovy Ecard.
Retail music industry veteran Corky has entered the music blogging world with Desolation Row. He's still tweaking a few things, but you won't want to miss his list of the top songs by The Rolling Stones. Hey, where's "Happy"?
