Happy Wednesday! We’re back with another midweek pick-you-up round of TuneCore Artist music videos. Fun fact:on this day, the very first hip hop record made it to #1 on the U.S. charts in 1987! It was the Beastie Boys’ debut, License To Ill – an important part of hip hop history as the genre continued to push its way into the mainstream. Not to mention just an overall stellar LP. With that in your pocket, please enjoy these wonderful videos:
Happy Wednesday once more, readers and music video lovers. Today we’re celebrating “Underrated Drummers Month” and wishing Rick Buckler, drummer of British trio The Jam, a happy 62nd birthday! Who are The Jam? Only one of the finest rock outfits to come out of the 1977-82 UK punk/Brit-pop era, (if you ask this editor, anyhow). If you’re less familiar, dive into The Jam’s wonderful discography AFTER you enjoy these wonderful TuneCore Artist videos.
It’s Wednesday once again, and we’re hear to entertain and distract with a new round-up of TuneCore Artist music videos. We’ve also thrown in a bonus video below, in an effort to commemorate The Beach Boys’ September 27, 1964 TV debut on the Ed Sullivan Show! They performed “I Get Around” and (one of this editor’s favorites) “Wendy”.
Happy Wednesday, everyone. In this week’s dose of weird music history, on this day in 1982, our main man Rod Stewart got jacked for his $50,000 Porsche by a gunman – midday, while out shopping, mind you – on Hollywood Boulevard. Ah the 80s. In the theme of getting all shook up midday, please allow us to bring you this dose of afternoon distraction courtesy of some very talented and entertaining TuneCore Artists!
