Mundo 5: Five Songs That Make Us Smile

Mundo 5: Five Songs That Make Us Smile

Music is an incredibly powerful art form, as it can make us feel a whole range of emotions. Music can be heart-wrenching; it can be beautiful, silly, serious, politically fueled, or just for fun; but the best music is music that makes the listener feel something.  A lot of the music I write about and listen to tends to be […]

Mundo 5: Five Great “Foodie” Songs

Summertime in North America and Europe means two things – the availability of fresh, local food and music festivals, and plenty of both. So for our list this week, we decided to bring together two of our favourite things, focusing on songs with food in their titles.   “PEACHES” by the PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA No list […]

Mundo 5: Songs from Orphan Black

Mundo 5: Songs from Orphan Black

Lead actress Tatiana Maslany […]

Mundo 15: Our Favorite Albums of the First Quarter of 2014

The first three months of 2014 brought to us some excellent music. To review the first quarter, we, Rich and Ben, have provided our favourite 15 albums so far. If you’ve been following us, we say favourite because we’re not experts nor are we qualified critics (is there such a thing?). This list was really tough to determine and we […]

Mundo 5: Five Songs from the Squared Circle

Happy Friday, everyone! That means another Mundo 5! Ben and I were trying to come up with ideas of lists, and since I’ve been a fan of pro wrestling for as long as I could walk, he suggested I do a list of wrestling related songs.  It’s Wrestlemania season, so there’s no better time! Part of the spectacle of professional […]

Mundo 5: Five Great Collaborative Albums

Mundo 5: Five Great Collaborative Albums

Once upon a time, collaborations between artists were considered special occasions.  They usually involved two high-profile singers, such as Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers on “Islands in the Stream” and the unforgettable duet of Paula Abdul and M.C. Kat on “Opposites Attract”. Super, married couples have also collaborated, like Sonny and Cher, June Carter and Johnny Cash, and Beyonce and […]

Mundo Musique: Five Fun and Cool Indie Names

Mundo Musique: Five Fun and Cool Indie Names

We’ve been toying with the idea of writing “lists” every once in a while. One idea was to identify some fun indie band names. After some procrastinating, we have to thank Artemis Thomas-Hansard of The Village Voice, who wrote this entertaining ramble titled, “The History of Terrible Band Names”. Yes, some of his arguments are irrational and contradictory (e.g., animal-based […]
