From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

The Voice of a Generation: Lady Gaga

Say what you will about Lady Gaga...the woman might just be the talent to define her era.  While not a fan of the whole performance artist thing...go beyond the costumes, hair, make-up...definitely keep the attitude, and then you have the voice.

Even "back in the day" various artists like Kiss, Twisted Sister, David Bowie and Madonna, re-invented themselves to stand out from the crowd.  Lady Gaga takes it to a new level.  In this wasteland that is music today, I kind of wish her great stuff would have been heard without all the distraction.

Case in point.  Listen to this clip of a live performance of  "The Edge of Glory" on the Howard Stern show.  The power of this vocal is just breathtaking.  Drink it in.
