A

ABC.123 Introduces the first installment:

The Letter A

Alright, so lets get started. Here are my picks for song, album, and artist that begin with the letter A:

1)Song

Are You Gonna Go My Way – Timid Tiger (feat. Ludacris & The Notorious B.I.G.)

This was a tough choice, as there were several songs I wanted to “kick off” this series with. However, this song hasn’t been introduced in this blog, it’s entirely new, and it starts the party off right. I got this off their PMA.EP album over at Pretty Much Amazing! They also do a great interview with the band that probably does them more justice than me trying to translate German articles about the band.

Honorable mentions:
Awake My Soul-Mumford and Sons

American Music-Violent Femmes

2) Album

Anthem In by Anthem In

Yeah yeah, album and artist are the same name, but who cares? Both are A, so it’s like a double whammy. Anyway, Anthem In was introduced to me by my God-Family. More specifically, my God-Brother is their drummer. Ok, so maybe I’m cheating a bit, but thats not to say their music isn’t great! Check out this album, or their other “The Cloudbusting EP”

3) Artist

ACDC

I can’t resist posting some classic rock. It just has to be done. Enough Said. Especially an awesome remix!

Shook Me All Night Long-ACDC

Thunderstruck -ACDC (Crookers Remix)

P.S. This post is dedicated to Alex, who commented on my lack of posting and updates. Also, his name starts with A.

ABC’s, should be easy as 123…right?

Ok, time to get this back up and running. For real this time. I’m going to activley post and look for outside contributors. So if you read this, and you think you’ve got something to say about music, by all means contact me.

With that said, I’m going to introduce a new series of posts to this blog that will hopefully keep me updating it often. I’ve got plenty of music, and plenty I haven’t shared on here, so it’s about time to get to it. Here’s the idea and the story behind it:

A few years ago I heard a radio station that was taking a break from its “random” shuffle of current hits and going on vacation. In the mean time, it set up its system to play its entire music catalog from A to Z. Simple enough, and it was awesome. While organized, the songs were very random, as they had collected a lot of music as well that typically wouldn’t get airtime on their station. So, edu[MUSIC]ation is going to do the same.

Each day (hopefully), a new post will be created highlighting a 1) song, 2) album, and 3) artist that begins with the a letter of the alphabet. From A to Z you’ll here my top picks in my catalog. Get it? ABC. 123.
