Abbey Road by The Beatles

Abbey Road. The Beatles’ final studio album..and one of their masterpieces. From the soothing tune of George Harrison’s Something, to the rock and roll beat of John Lennon’s Come Together, this album is sure to please the Beatlemaniac and hater (yes, hater!) alike. My favorite track on this album has to be Here Comes the Sun. It’s a sweet melody with hopeful lyrics. It’s sure to cheer you up, so…

It was released…

A Silver Lining by We Shot The Moon

This band has gone through a lot of changes to end up where they are. Bands broke up, members came and left, and numerous band names were brought up. Yet they went from four songs on Myspace to a world tour in little over a year. This story is inspirational to me. It gives more proof and reason to believe in the message many of their songs depict. We Shot…
