Another week, another mid-week lull upon us all. But did you know on this very day back in 1956, a young Elvis roughed up not one, but TWO local gas station employees and got his charges dismissed the following afternoon? To be fair, they started it: Elvis was filling up when his presence began to draw autograph requests; when the owner got bothered by it crowding his business, he wound up slapping the young rock star, and well, Elvis wasn’t having it. He threw a punch and was even able to knock down the owner’s back-up; both wound up getting charged with assault! Kinda cool, no? Not amused? Well enjoy this round up of awesome TuneCore Artist music videos!
Happy Wednesday everyone. Time to divert your attention from whatever it was you were up to before reading this entry to kick back, relax, and enjoy some awesome music videos from our ever-growing community of TuneCore Artists. What are we celebrating this week? Well, did you know that on this day just a few years back in 2009, Barbra Streisand went to #1 on the U.S. album charts with Love Is The Answer? Yeah, that doesn’t seem like anything worth mentioning, until you realize that she’s the ONLY artist to have a number one album in the States in FIVE different decades. That’s why Barbra’s the queen!
Sharon Needles, “Battle Axe”
Well, without attempting to simplify anything, this has been a tough week for everyone. Should you feel the need to tune out for the rest of the afternoon, we’re here as always to provide a pleasant distraction in the form of TuneCore Artist music videos.
Nora Jane Struthers, “Champion”
Happy Wednesday once again, people. Today we’re paying tribute to One Hit Wonders The Archies, whose legendary single “Sugar Sugar” hit the charts for a 4-week run no this day in 1969. Underrated was their artwork, based off the Archie comic strip, which could easily pass for an ironic indie synth pop compilation in 2017. Below that wonderful album cover you’ll find a brand new lineup of TuneCore Artist music videos to space out to as you count down the remaining hours of this midweek slump!
Lonzo Ball, “Melo Ball 1 (feat. Kenneth Paige)”
Summer’s creeping into fall, but we all know on a Wednesday afternoon, it doesn’t really make a difference what season it is. That’s why we’re back with another round-up of TuneCore Artist music videos to divert your attention from work/school/responsibilities/life in general (just don’t walk into traffic watching them, please). A fun fact for you about this day in history back in 1991: Geffen Records threw a party to celebrate the launch of Nirvana’s new single, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” – an affair that was likely enjoyed by all, except for all three members of Nirvana, who were removed from said launch party for hurling food at everyone/each other!
Happy Hump Day everyone! We’re back with another round up of awesome TuneCore Artist music videos and some random and often meaningless fun facts in the realm of music history. On this day in 1974, a young Joe Strummer and his rock group the 101ers made their live debut at the Telegraph in London. A couple years down the road, the Clash frontman would ‘see the light’ of punk rock when the Sex Pistols would open for them. The rest? History!
Harp Samuels, “Secrets”
Loc Rhymacide, “Who Am I”
