“Whoa! We’re half way there, Whoa oh! Livin’ On A Prayer!”
Maybe you’ve heard of the classic “Livin’ On a Prayer” somewhere, at least once. “Livin’ On a Prayer” has been around since 1986, it’s creators, Bon Jovi since 1983. Yeah. Pretty long time, and yes, they are still around and rocking around the world.
Last month, Bon Jovi released their twelfth studio album “What About Now”. It then became their fifth number one on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Being a devout fan, I…Continue

I received a ukulele for Christmas and the first thing I did was join my dad and brother in learning this holiday song. It's our rendition of Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's cover of the song "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" originally sung by Nancy Wilson.
Latinitas has the wonderful privilege each year to engage in the national music festival called Austin City Limits, that takes place annually here where Latinitas was founded. It's an amazing opportunity for our young journalists to cover one of the most widely attended music events, nationally. Each year,the festival seeks out some of the most exciting and inspiring up and coming contemporary Latino band or musician that almost systematically blows the crowd away. For multiple years…Continue

Last weekend I was able to go to Austin City Limits, and let me just say it was one of the best days of my life hands down. From the walk to the concert grounds to hanging out in the media tents up to the amazing artists I got to see, the entire day was an adrenaline rush. When you walk onto the…Continue

I was reading in a New York Times blog that "Teenagers listen to an average of nearly 2.5 hours of music per day". One in three popular songs contains explicit references to drug or alcohol use, meaning that young people are receiving about 35 references to substance abuse for every hour of music they listen to. Is what we listen to important to our behavior? The New York Times seems to be aiming that it does. Although I would like to point out that young…Continue
I’ve been listening to the Beatles since I was a dancing fetus.
At four years of age, I already had in mind who I wanted to marry. Unfortunately for me, the only four men I thought I could ever love were either 50-something years old or… dead. Their music, however, was as fresh as it had ever been.
The Beatles, whose career peeked in 1964 and lasted until 1970, were one of the most successful and influential bands in the history of popular music. In fact, they…Continue
During my many searches to discover new songs, I've come across many covers of songs that already exist. A "cover" is when a band or artist records a song that was previously played by another band/artist. After listening to many different covers, I've come to the realization that for the most part, I like them more than I like the original song. Weird, I know. Here's a list of a few songs (in no order) that were covered by a different artist and why I enjoyed their version…Continue

The second annual Neon Desert Music Festival took place in downtown El Paso on May 26, 2012. I still remember attending last year's first ever NDMF and instantly feeling like something special had made it's way to the Sun City as I walked through the San Jacinto Plaza. This wasn't just a roundup of random bands with a couple of food vendors on the side. This was the beginning of something that the city had been yearning for- an indie music scene that celebrated local, national,…Continue

Lets face it, being a motivated chica isn't always easy! We all have those days, weeks (or in my case months) where its hard to find inspiration to do anything other than be lazy or sleep. You know you have been there, whether you find yourself staring at a blank screen, a blank page or even a neglected pair running shoes.
Getting motivated isn't an easy task, thats why when I need a pick me up I rely on the power of music. It is truly amazing how listening to one…Continue
Today I read this article from the Washington Post after my professor mentioned it: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/03/12/AR2010031203929.html Debra Lee from BET wants to improve the images of Black women that…Continue
