Welcome to my blog. In 2016 I wrote my first stories on my favorite albums. Due to the many, nice and positive feedback and comments I started this blog, A Pop Life subtitled My life with music.
What can you expect? Stories about music which I think is nice, beautiful of moving, reviews, concert reports and much more. I get very happy whenever I receive comments, whether through one of the social media channels or by using the comment form on this site. I love to hear from my readers!
For now, have very much (reading) fun!
Closing of 2020. What was good? What wasn’t? What were the main events? What blog stories were favorite? A look back at 2020.
On Christmas Eve in 2015 LCD Soundsystem released a new single, Christmas Will Break Your Heart. Such bliss!
1980 came to a fantastic end with the release of the impressive Sandinista! by The Clash: three albums filled with hiphop, jazz, dub, reggae, gospel, funk, rap, rockabilly, calypso, rock en disco!
In 1975 Bob Marley And The Wailers released the beautiful, impressive and classic Live! Reggae had arrived and was here to stay!
In 1995 Mayte released her first (and last) album on NPG Records. The story of that album and her introduction to and departure from Prince's world.
The long expected re-release of Prince's great 1987 album Sign O' The Times. A review of an impressive release. In one word? Crucial!
Another great release in Neil Young's ongoing Archives series, the previously unreleased 1975 album Homegrown. An impressive piece of music history.
The release of RTJ4 came earlier than planned. A great move, because this album is very much needed. The shocking events in the US need perspective. Run The Jewels provide that in an impressive way!
In 1999 BowieNet members received the first Bowie internet CD, in part compiled by members themselves. In 2020 it was made available for everybody to enjoy and listen to!
2½/5: The cooperation with the Metropole Orkest and the special ambiance couldn't inspire the band. Too bad.
3½/5: Very entertaining show by U.K. Subs, who raced through their set within an hour. Great evening!
4/5: A great closer of the concert year 2019. A beautiful story by Fırat Tanış accompanied by beautiful songs performed at a very high level.
