Aloe Blacc


I bring you another great singer. I´m not a fan of rap and soul music but I like Aloe Blacc songs. He began his music career in 1995 as a rapper but his first solo album was only released in 2006 and it was called “Shine Through”. I found Aloe Blacc because the song “I Need a Dollar” is the opening title track on the HBO series, How to Make It in America. This is another great singer to hear when we want to chill out. There are some of my favorite songs:

Florence and the Machine

This band is a combination of many genres such as rock and soul. The lead singer of Florence and the Machine is called Florence Welch. I think she has a great voice. This is a great band to hear when we want to chill out. There are some of my favorite songs:

It´s Glee time!



I need to confess that Glee is one of my favorite tv series. It has good music, great singers and fantastic actors, but it’s more than that. Glee approaches important social issues like no other tv series. And the most amazing is that using music it was possible to approach social issues in a funny, emotional and also exciting way. In my opinion Glee is one of the best tv series that I have ever watched.

I promise more Glee videos.

 Stay tuned. Bye bye.

Across the Universe (2007)


Let´s explore another great musical.
Across the Universe is a beautiful musical film centered on “The Beatles” songs. “The Beatles” is one of the most famous bands in the world.
This movie is about another love story and it has as background the Vietnam War. The story is about Jude (performed by Jim Sturgess) that goes to New Jersey to find his father whom he has never met (Jude is from Liverpool). After reaching his dad, Jude meets Max (performed by Joe Anderson) and Max´s sister, Lucy (performed by Evan Rachel Wood). Knowing that her boyfriend was killed in Vietnam, Lucy decides to stay with Max and Jude. After they started living together, Lucy fell in love with Jude and when Max is sent to Vietnam she becomes an anti-war activist. The story is then centered on their relationship (Jude and Lucy) and on Vietnam War.

This movie has also other interesting characters such as Sadie (performed by Dana Fuchs), Jojo (performed by Martin Luther McCoy) and Prudence (performed by Teresa Carpio).

This musical film is great to remind beautiful Beatles songs like “Let it be”, “Hey Jude”, “I want to hold your hand”, “While my guitar gently weeps”, “Across the universe”, “Don’t ‘let me down” and other more…

“Hey Jude”, “Let it be” and “While my guitar gently weeps” were the songs that I most liked in this musical.

Stay tuned. Bye bye.
