New Years Eve Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "In The Year 2525" by Zager and Evans

They Said It

by Fred Pearlman Dallas Mavs Owner Mark Cuban, on his interest in purchasing the Dodgers: “My concern is someone is going to overpay.  I’ve got a lot of money but not unlimited money.  You don’t want all your money going to Frank McCourt.  You want to be able to rebuild and invest in players.” From […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "A Case Of You" by Prince

Prince has got balls! Here he attempts to bring his own special flavor to a cover of a Joni Mitchell classic that originally appeared on the album “Blue.” His version is interesting and certainly carries his own soulful stamp on the proceedings. The recording was part of the “A Tribute To Joni Mitchell” album that […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "The Other Shoe" by F*&#d Up

The only thing F*&#d Up about this record is that I only heard it for the first time last week and as a result it did not make my Top Albums List Of 2011…and it is certainly good enough to be on the list. This Canadian Punk band has been around since 2001 releasing a […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "The Jean Genie" by David Bowie

Here’s the long lost Top Of the Pops live clip recorded on January 3, 1973 featuring Bowie and the Spiders From Mars. The clip was said to be lost and recently rediscovered. It received its first broadcast in England since it originally aired back in 1973 on December 21, 2011. Glam rock never sounded so […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "Groove's Groove" by Richard "Groove" Holmes

        Song Of The Day – “Groove’s Groove” by Richard “Groove” Holmes Like fellow Jazz organ giants Jimmy Smith, Brother Jack McDuff and Jimmy McGriff, Holmes released countless organ-drenched Soul Jazz sides during the 1960s paving the way for Acid Jazz and Hip-Hop. Here is the edited 7″ version of this song […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "Trees" by Isham Jones & His Orchestra

I first came into contact with this song in a rendition by Alfalfa on “The Little Rascals.” This version hails from 1930 by the Chicago sweet band led by Isham Jones. Jones was a cold taskmaster of a bandleader which is kind of at odds with the sweet music he made with his group. At […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "Swingin' Dem Jingle Bells" by Fats Waller

          Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Swingin’ Dem Jingle Bells” by Fats Waller What more could you ask for on Christmas than this rambunctious reading of “Jingle Bells” from 1936 by the larger than life pianist extraordinaire Fats Waller. Meld that with a fine holiday Betty Boop video […]
