Tori Amos’ Ocean To Ocean

Ocean To Ocean is the prodigal return of the pop-sounding Tori Amos who has been in hiding for far too many years, I was getting ready to file a missing diva report. I feel like her song “29 Years” is speaking to that part of me that’s been longing (for 29 years, I’ve been searching…

Natalie Imbruglia’s Firebird

In my gay opinion, Natalie Imbruglia is pop personified. She knows what she does well, without feeling the need to branch out into other genres, and she brings it on every album. Her new album Firebird is no different, it’s jam-packed with feel-good, finger-snapping, dancing around the living room goodness. For those who only know…

Before that, in 2003 she released an album of her favorite showtunes called Colored Lights: The Broadway Album. So saying I’ve been thirsty for a Debbie Gibson…

Welcome to my first back-to-back posts! After writing my last post about new-to-me diva Litany, she announced the surprise release of her new EP Adult Movies. Since I found her last two EPs, 4 Track EP and Single Player Mode, totally relatable and enjoyable, I was excited to check out Adult Movies…plus with a name…

Litany

In my gay opinion, music can be like a time machine. Olivia Newton-John’s “Hopelessly Devoted To You” flashes me back to creating musical productions of Grease in my basement with neighborhood friends (you already know who Sandy was), “Holiday” by Madonna was playing both when I got my first kiss and got into my first…
