Top Seven Videos on Chiron Radio
Chiron Radio 1 by Chiron O'Keefe
At the tender age of fifteen, my fingers formed their first guitar chord. It took time to master the fingering but my passion fueled perseverance and my burning desire to play and sing has escalated with each added year. My husband and I work up tunes and jam each Saturday night until our fingers can't take anymore, at which point we usually end up in front of my big-screen computer drinking in music videos until the wee hours of the morn.
This week's installment is the usual blend of past and present, intense and amazing. Ready to rock? Here's the Top Seven Videos playing this week on Chiron Radio:
Beginning with my favorite rocker, Joan Jett
performing "Crimson and Clover" live in NY.
Now let's jump into the Way-Back Machine and check out the incomparable Janis Joplin
"To Love Somebody" live on the Dick Cavett show.
With a soulful voice that resonates deep within, Adele
just sweeps me away. Here's one of the official videos for "Rolling in the Deep":
Speaking of soulful voices, Jonny Lang
first picked up a guitar at age twelve and recorded his first album at fourteen. Here's a killer song by the blues master, "Lie to Me".
Back into the Way-Back machine for a timeless classic song by the group called, ? and The Mysterians . "96 Tears" was first released in the sixties. Here they are thirty years later performing for a special. Sometimes you just can't tear your eyes away!
Two more that I couldn't stop watching to wrap up our show. First off, a nifty blend of original song and parody masterfully blended. For your amusement and entertainment, here's "Poker Faces by Half Mast/Hat (Lady Gaga vs. Christopher Walken vs. Cartman)".
And for our closing number, an astonishing feat of multi-tracking and a pretty darn cool video of Pomplamoose
performing "Mister Sandman":
