David Bowie passed away aged 69

I just want to take a moment of appreciation for the legend that was David Bowie. In his music career exceeding 54 years he achieved unbelievable things.

e released 25 albums, featured in over 20 movies, won two Grammy awards. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Throughout the decades his music changed but his unique style never did. He seemed to always stay true to himself, honest and warm-hearted. Certainly, David Bowie was and will always be one of the best musicians, song writers, rock starts in the history of the world. We love you. We miss you. Goodbye, David.


40 years to the Bohemian Rhapsody

Wow, has it been so long? 40 years since the release of arguably the best song in the history of mankind.

Any way you look at it, songwriting, composing, the vocals, it’s the best. And to me, one of the main aspects by which the songs should be judged is their longevity. There are a lot of hot songs that people get crazy about for a couple of weeks or a month, or even a year, but as more time goes on, they become insignificant. The world’s best songs, John Lennon’s “Imagine” or Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” even after decades are still amazing to listen to and relevant. So, all in all, congratulations to the legendary song that just turned 40. You know what, you should listen to it again.


The Beatles are now available on Spotify

Normally, I don’t post news about individual artists and groups but this time it is a bit different. In the perfect world, I wish all music would be available to anyone.

That’s why adding any artist to online music streaming services is good news for everybody. You may be a fan of Justin Bieber or Nicki Minaj, you may not even like the Beatles. In any case, as time goes by online music streaming will undoubtedly only get bigger. Therefore, you probably have to agree that, if all music being affordable and accessible globally is in your interest, The Beatles on Spotify is great news.
