!! OMG, something special: The Queer Songbook Orchestra !!

queer-songbook-orchestra-02.jpg
With specially commissioned musical arrangements, the Queer Songbook Orchestra presents stories that are familiar to many of us in the LGBT community. But the way these stories are told — through nuanced performances by a dream team of virtuoso musicians — is unprecedented, and shouldn’t be missed.
We especially like this avante garde version of the Rodgers and Hart hit “The Bad In Every Man” (aka “Blue Moon”), featuring a powerhouse vocal performance by Alex Samaras:

Please consider donating to the QSO’s Indiegogo campaign to help the project along.

!! OMG, WATCH: Aretha Franklin perform Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep/Ain’t No Mountain’ on Letterman !!


Wow. A song that was written for a voice like Adele‘s could only be trumped by having it sung by a diva like Aretha Franklin.
Check out Franklin singing her own version of the song in combination with Ain’t No Mountain High Enough on Letterman last night. LEGENDARY!

!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: Fergie returns with some ‘L.A. Love’ !!


Just because London Bridges has gone down in history as a new modern classic, doesn’t mean the world shouldn’t make more room for Fergie Ferg.
Check out her newest track, L.A. Love (La La) produced by DJ MUSTARD (…in the study with the candlestick!?).
I’d be chirpin about some L.A. Love too if I was rubbing on Josh Duhamel in this house:
