Welcome one and all to CD WOW!’s fancy new blog!
My name’s Doogs, and I’m here to chat about anything about all things music, movies and gaming-related.
We’ve figured with all the banter that goes around the office, we might want to solve our differences, like “What was the best band of the 00’s?” by getting like-minded people involved (Is it 00’s, or naughts?).
We’re getting stacks and stacks of new stuff in at CD WOW!, some of which you’ll recognise the artist, some not so much. You’re going to love the superstar bands, but has anyone shown you a local band that has the potential to be something huge later on? You could be in the know sooner than later.
Blockbuster films are always huge, but has anyone shown you any of John Woo’s classic films before he started making movies in America?
These are the issues that need to be discussed here, and we’re aiming to expose a few more artists to you as well to mix up your tastes in all things entertainment.
So to start things off, we’re going to put in our two cents about a guy from London who’s been getting some good airplay in the office.
Mike Brightley’s got a very smooth, mellow sound you could almost zone out to, which obviously shouldn’t be tested out at work. But at home, it’s perfectly allowed, and therefore a good addition to the ‘Songs To Listen To When I Can’t Fall Asleep’ list.
From time to time I’ll ask a question to see what the rest of you think. First question I wanna put out there to you all is this: ‘What is your favourite CD to listen to after a stressful day at work?’
Stress, love life, post-stubbing your toe, it’s all suitable. What do you reckon?
Any artists, big or small, let me know so I can make some arrangements to my music player at night. That’s what the brilliant this about the internet. Although modern technology loses the romance when instead of making a tape deck of the songs that best describe how you feel about your loved one, there’s an mp3 CD with every band’s discography. “Honey, listen to these songs. Then when you’re done, you can listen to his back catalogue.”
Who said romance is dead? It’s just been upgraded.
If you’re struggling, anything by Randy Newman will knock you out.
That, or want to watch Toy Story.
PS: Check out our old blog for a bit of nostaliga. The bloggers before me found some good bands and movies. Plus the prices will have dropped since then, so win-win!
