Song of the Day: Somebody to Love - Queen (1976)

Today's song of the day is Somebody to Love by Queen, one of my favorite bands, released in 1976. I consider it one of Queen's most beautiful songs. Definitely something everyone should hear at least once.

Song of the Day: (Just Like) Starting Over - John Lennon (1980)

I'm thinking about turning this into a feature to take up spaces when I can't think of content to post - a song of the day. I'm very much into classic rock (the title of this blog is consequently a Beatles song), so thats likely where most of these will come from.

Today's song is also the #1 Hot 100 hit from this day in 1980 - just a few weeks after Lennon's untimely death. I actually just discovered this song today (shows how much of a Lennon fan I am D: ). Its actually his most successful American hit as a single artist, staying atop the charts for five weeks.

Go ahead and give it a listen, and tell me what you guys think:

What do you think about this feature? Should I keep it?

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone - I hope everyone had a nice holiday. I got a few of the things I wanted for Christmas - some new clothes, Battlefield 3 (there goes any hope of a social life at school this year, haha. I kid.), and of course, a delicious meal with the family.

Family is definitely my favorite part of Christmas. I feel like I've matured a lot recently, expecting less and less gifts and looking forward more and more towards seeing the family I don't get to see as often since going off to college.

I won't ramble on too much, as I have to get some sleep, but I suppose I should ask how everyone else's Christmas festivities went.


The purpose of this blog will be to post my commentary on a variety of subjects: college life, politics, and the occasional culture and video games. I'm hoping to frequently update. What do you guys think, anything else you'd be interested in hearing about?

Wonderful Christmas Time

Probably my favorite Christmas song:
