Trivia Q & A # 42 –...

Q.  What cowbell laden song is featured in several horror movies including Halloween, The Frighteners & Scream to name a few. A.  Blue Oyster Cult - Don't Fear The Reaper From their 1976 album, Agents of Fortune. It was written and sung by the band's lead guitarist, Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser and was produced by David Lucas, Murray Krugman, and Sandy Pearlman. The song is built around Dharma's opening, repetitive guitar riff, while the lyrics deal with eternal love and the inevitability of death. Dharma wrote the song while picturing an early death for himself. Besides the movies mentioned above, it was also in  used in a very non-horror capacity in the party scene of the Disney movie Miracle, which is about the US Hockey team beating the USSR at the 1980 Olympic Games.  Stephen King quoted the lyrics to this song in his novel The Stand, in which 99.9% of the US population ...

ANDREA BOCELLI – CINEMA

Andrea Bocelli comments: With the album ‘Cinema’ I’m fulfilling a wish that I’ve harboured for decades. I’ve never made a secret of my dream of bringing to life a recording project associated with soundtracks as I truly believe that it’s an exceptional artistic treasure trove. If films are a dream factory, the music that supports them embraces these dreams and heightens all of the magic and emotional vitality. My invitation, my token is for these immortal “classics” to merge with the experiences, with the most precious memories, with the emotions of every listener and to become the inimitable soundtrack to their life.

ROD STEWART – ANOTHER...

Rod Stewart has finished work on his eagerly anticipated new album, Another Country, to be released on October 23 via Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading Music Company. Another Country continues a prolific new chapter in Stewart’s storied career that began with 2013’s, Time, his landmark last album which reintroduced him as one of rock’s most gifted storytellers. “I’ve found that the only way to write songs is to be as personal and honest as possible,” Rod explains. “And when my last album was so well‐received it gave me the confidence to keep on writing, and to examine and write about different things. It also gave me the freedom to experiment with different sounds like reggae, ska and Celtic melodies.”   A$AP Rocky's (Mark Ronson produced) hit "Everyday" which was just added to the UK's coveted Radio 1 playlist and was called a "Rod Stewart‐sampling soul fantasia" by Rolling Stone. Collaborating closely with Kevin Savigar, who co‐produced the ...

HALF MOON RUN – SUN...

Montreal-based quartet, Half Moon Run, return with a lush and expansive 13-track second album, Sun Leads Me On, set for release on October 23, 2015 (via Indica/Universal in Canada/Australia and on Glassnote/Universal in the rest of the world). Written mostly between Montreal and a surfing sojourn to California and recorded at the historic and idyllic Bathouse Studios in Ontario with acclaimed British producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele), Sun Leads Me On marks the process of a young band embarking on a very personal quest for beauty and honesty. Following an unstoppable two years of international touring which saw their debut album - Dark Eyes (2012) - rocket past gold status in their home market of Canada, the group became a globally celebrated live act, but returned home in 2014 worn down and “oversaturated with each other and the band”, according to newest member Isaac Symonds. They needed to start over. It is from there, drawn by the ...
