On this day in music history: November 23, 1993 - “The Sign”, the debut album by Ace Of Base is released. Produced by Denniz PoP, Jonas Berggren and Ulf Ekberg, it is recorded at Swemix Studios, Cybersound Studios, Cheiron Studios, Studios Decibell in Stockholm, Sweden and Tuff Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden from Early 1992 - Mid 1993. Originally issued in the groups’ native Sweden and through the rest of the world as “Happy Nation”, the track listing is revised and the title is changed for the US market. The album is a huge worldwide smash for the Swedish quartet made up of siblings Jonas, Jenny and Linn Berggren, and family friend Ulf Ekberg. It spins off four hit singles including “All That She Wants” (#2 Pop), the title track (#1 Pop) and “Don’t Turn Around” (#4 Pop).  Written by Albert Hammond (“It Never Rains In California”, “To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before”) and Diane Warren (“Rhythm Of The Night”, “Blame It On The Rain”), “Don’t Turn Around is originally recorded by Tina Turner in 1986, appearing as the non-LP B-side of "Typical Male”. It’s also recorded by soul singer Luther Ingram (“If Loving You Is Wrong (I Don’t Want To Be Right)”) and reggae band Aswad, the latter of whom hits number one in the UK with their version in 1988. Ace Of Base cover the song after Arista Records chairman Clive Davis recommends the band record it for the US release, and it becomes the third consecutive top five single from the album. The massive sales of “The Sign” make the group the third most successful Swedish recording act in history (behind ABBA and Roxette), moving over twenty three million units worldwide. “The Sign” spends two weeks at number one on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 9x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

So it seems like we’re in a bit of a newsies dry spell so I thought I’d spice things up a bit. I’d originally planned to have these all done and colored and everything but then again I’m in crippling debt and spend my life writing papers and eating microwaved noodles so that isn’t going to happen anymore. 

Yeah, these are based off of the 1992 movie (sorry live show fans). This was an modern au I’d been working on. I think I have more of them somewhere so maybe I’ll bless everyone with a few more sometime.

Late Night Javid thoughts

But like…. if David and Jack were to get married, who’s last name would the other person chose?

In my opinion, I believe Jack would be so proud to be called Jack Jacobs after they got married because he’d feel he now definitely had a permanent family (not including the newsies which he will always have) and it was with the man he loved and he’d then feel more related to Les and Sarah who he cares about so much and would do anything to protect and defend them.

What are your guy’s thoughts? 

(also if you don’t like the Javid ship, please no hate it’s just some harmless fun)

Honestly I just really love this ship so here’s some Javid moments that I found and have saved on my laptop so why not.

On this day in music history: November 17, 1992 - “The Bodyguard - Original Soundtrack Album” is released. Produced by David Foster, Robert Clivilles, David Cole, Narada Michael Walden, L.A. Reid, Babyface, Daryl Simmons, BeBe Winans, Walter Afanasieff, Ian Devaney, Andy Morris, Danny Kortchmar, Charlie Midnight and Roy Lott, it is recorded from Mid 1991 - Early 1992. The album serves as the soundtrack for the hugely successful film starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. The film written by Lawrence Kasdan (“The Big Chill”, “The Empire Strikes Back”, “Body Heat”, “Raiders Of The Lost Ark”), is one of the first screenplays written by the Academy Award nominated screen writer, producer and director. Originally conceived as a film vehicle starring Diana Ross and Ryan O'Neal in the late 70’s, the script is stuck in development at Warner Bros for nearly two decades before it is finally made. With pop and R&B superstar Houston and Oscar winner Costner cast in the lead roles, the film is directed by Mick Jackson (“L.A. Story”). The accompanying soundtrack album features six tracks by Houston including the smash “I Will Always Love You”, which breaks the then current record of thirteen weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 set Boyz II Men’s “End Of The Road”. The album also features tracks by Curtis Stigers, Lisa Stansfield, Kenny G. & Aaron Neville, The S.O.U.L. System (featuring Michelle Visage), Joe Cocker (featuring Sass Jordan), and score composer Alan Silvestri. The soundtrack sells over forty four million copies worldwide, making it the biggest selling soundtrack of all time. The soundtrack wins three Grammy Awards including Record and Album Of The Year in 1994. “The Bodyguard” spends twenty weeks (non-consecutive) at number one on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 17x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

Fact:

The Ottawa Senators (Original Founded in 1917. Current Founded in 1992.) and Winnipeg Jets (Original Founded in 1979. Current Founded in 2011.) had to get permission to use “Ottawa Senators” and “Winnipeg Jets” as their team name as there were previous teams who used those names which either relocated or left the league.

Sepultura covers (albums and singles) by Michael Whelan. Michael’s comments are in italics.

NIGHTMARE IN RED (1981) - Cover for Beneath the Remains, the band’s third studio album. The image was originally the cover illustration for Tales from the Nightside by Charles L. Grant.

ARISE (1990) - Original painting for the band’s fourth studio album. The single Dead Embryonic Cells and Under Siege use a detail from the painting for their covers.

CACOPHONY (1992) - Original painting for Chaos A.D., the fifth studio album. The cover of the single Territory was an early digital piece.

I took a class in NYC to learn how to use Photoshop way back when [I think it was Photoshop 4 we were using!]. While I waited for some of the newbies to learn how to press cntl/alt/click or whatever, I stayed in the back and worked on this piece, which ended up being used for the “Territory” cover. I had painted the “S” logo and the rocks but then I scanned them in and fiddled around with filters and cloning and stuff to make the firey background.

ROOTS (1996) - A digital painting for the band’s sixth studio album.

The concept for ROOTS was largely Max Cavalera’s idea. He wanted me to paint the face off of a denomination of Brazilian paper money [I don’t remember what bill it was] and just put in some kind of background. I tried to digitally paint the face off the bill, then fooled around with some photos I had taken of tree branches and stuff till I came up with a background I thought might work.
