We surveyed a panel of music bloggers to narrow down the best albums, songs and videos from 2014. Now it’s your turn to bring this home and create the final list. Please go here and take a few minutes to pick your favs. If you don’t see yours in the drop-down, just write it in.
You have until Thursday, December 18, to make a difference before 3000 closes the poll and goes back to wearing normal clothes.
Madame de Staël en Corinne (1807). Firmin Massot (Swiss, 1766-1849). Oil on wood. Collection du Château de Coppet.
Madame de Staël wrote romantic comedies, tragedies, novels and essays. Her brilliant salon at Paris, and the one held in her family chateau at Coppet in Switzerland, became renowned centres of political debate. They were also a meeting place for the women and men who were the creative, innovative thinkers of her age.
Open eyes adjusting to the dark
The growlin’ of machinery
Can’t say if it’s night or day
And you know, somewhere in there you know
There will be a price to pay ‘til all this goes away
So we walk the empty halls, the dirty walls
We smear our names in them
Dirt we find beneath our nails
Can’t be scrubbed from our tired hands, never clean
Time is lost, found cracks along my bones
This metal god is all I know
Now something’s gone away
Wow this just keeps getting better and better :D You guys are great ♥
I wish more people had a general respect for the differences of what other people enjoy or do.
You like golf? You’re good at it? Cool, that’s great.
I’m not good at it at all, nor do I go out of my way to watch it. Does that make it any less significant of a talent or interest? No, it doesn’t.
You like a different style of music than I do? Does that make someone bad at what they do, simply because I don’t personally prefer it? No, it doesn’t. Good for you. The artist must be talented in some way at what they do, whether it’s my personal taste or not.
You like bowling? That’s great. I’m horrible at it, and I also don’t prefer to watch it. That does not make someone who is good at it, bad at it. It is not any less important.
It seems so many people just bash what someone likes or does simply because they personally don’t enjoy it in some way or don’t do it themselves- I think it says a lot about their character and respect for talent, individuality, and hard work.
Only Beyoncé could use the Super Bowl, perhaps the largest stage in the country, to showcase new material. She also announced a new world tour right on the heels of the performance. In so doing, she was arguing, in essence, that the halftime show was there to serve her, not the other way around.
