Jen Hirsh is Monogem

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs. Welcome to another edition of Saturday Songsuasion. This morning’s featured artist is singer/songwriter, Jen Hirsh.


This gal has blend of dreamy electro-pop disco music and soulful funky vocals which makes me want to get to my feet and….dance! It’s time to wake you sleepy heads up. Turn those speakers on and be prepared to boogie with Monogem!

What’s with the name? A monogem ring is a supernova remnants. In short the afterglow from an exploding star. Monogem is a hopeful exploding music star and I think that’s pretty clever for band name, don’t you? 😉

Electric Hippo #music

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, kittens & dawgs this morning’s ReverbNation pick is Electric Hippo!

The artists’ bio reads:

Phiilo (formerly Electric Hippo) ties together the power of EDM with the rhythm and fluidity of funk, jazz, rock, and soul. Live instruments—primarily Nick’s distinct and technical style of electric guitar—are incorporated alongside experiments in digital sound production and Jonny’s broad vocal range. These components, while designed individually with high attention to detail, combine to create what is best described as stylistic electronic compositions.

After meeting in Boulder, Colorado, Nick and Jonny capitalized on a unique musical chemistry and immediately started jamming, writing what would become the first few Electric Hippo singles (including “Closer,” which layers silky ambience, RnB vocals, and a punchy arena synth). The song-writing process reflects each member’s forte: Nick, as instrumentalist, producer, and sound engineer, creates the musical composition and backbone, while Jonny writes and records vocal melodies. Unafraid to experiment, and dedicated to bringing listeners new sounds, Electric Hippo is poised to fill a crucial void in the ever-changing landscape of modern electronic music.

Bringing to you, hopefully, a new-to-you discovery, I give you Phiilo!

Superstition #BOTB showdown

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

It’s mid-October and you know what that means, kittens and dawgs, don’t cha? It’s time for round 2 of Battle of the Bands.

I decided to go with a theme for this battle and with Halloween at the end of the month, then I elected to use Stevie Wonder’s 1973, not included in the showdown, hit song Superstition.

Introducing contender #1, a new-to-me British Blue band, The Hoax. What surprised me to learn is this group has been around 20 years and I’m just now hearing them.  What’s with that? Oh, well…here they are doing Stevie Wonder’s #1 tune, Superstition.


Contender # 2, is another new-to-me artist. This America R&B jazz singer/song writer’s unique vocals style steps Wonder’s song pace down a notch bringing something different to this cover. Kindly listen to Macy Gray!


Alrighty, boys and girls, you know what to do. Tell me in comments who gets your vote and why. There’s no wrong pick other than the one you don’t make. So have fun!

Why Can’t We Be Friends #music #AprilA2Z

The end of the A2Z challenge is waning and I was wondering, why can’t we be friends?


Why Can’t We Be Friends?” is a song by the band War. The song has a simple structure, with the phrase “Why can’t we be friends?” being sung four times after each two-line verse amounting to over forty times in under four minutes. It was played in space when NASA beamed it to the linking of Soviet cosmonauts and U.S. astronauts in 1975 for the Apollo–Soyuz Test Project. “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” charted at number six in 1975. Billboard ranked it as the No. 23 song for 1975. ~Info borrowed from Wikipedia.com

Are we friends? If not, then let’s connect now! In my side menu, you’ll find a couple ways of becoming my newest friend and I’ll be happy to return the favor.

What song by War do you remember?

Please, feel free to follow me while I visit a few wonderful bloggers taking part in this wacky crazy A2Z challenge. I’ll see you tomorrow!

Saturday Song-suasion #34 : Kool and the Gang #a2zchallenge

Weekends, in general, are my off time in Blogosphere.  However, that doesn’t keep me from scheduling posts for weekend visitors. If you are here this morning from the A-Z Challenge April hop or if you’re one of my loyal minions, don’t worry I will repay the visit, slowly and surely!

For you newbies fortunate to land here, then this is your time to get into the groove, go with the flow, chillax to the sound, or jam to the beat. I feature artists/groups of my choosing each week in my Saturday Songsausaion edition.

Gathering inspiration from the alphabet prompt “K” let’s come together for a little boogie session with The Very Best of Kool and the Gang!



According to Wikipedia, Kool & the Gang formed in 1964 under the name of Jazziacs, an instrumental band by then 13-year old Robert Bell with five high school friends.  Original band members, the Bell brothers, Brown, and Thomas are still members of the group.

What’s your favorite Kool and the Gang song? I think my pick is 1979 billboard hit Too Hot!

Visit Kool and the Gang official website to see what they are up to!
