Best Tunes of 2014

Because I can't get enough of year end Top 10 lists, I feel the need to create my own each year, based on the jams that made my face melt, or had some other profound effect, during the course of the year.

We all have to start somewhere, right? For instance, I started out slinging shrubs in the outdoor lawn and garden department at my local ShopKo. More fun I haven't had, believe you me.

Music History

Apple and U2 are giving the new album Songs of Innocence to over 500 million iTunes customers worldwide.

iTunes is giving something away for free? It isn't a single track from an up-and-coming artist that is hit or miss? Well then, the colder temps must be coming from hell freezing over.
