Music News

Hey An Ocean of Noise Fans,
Sorry about the technical difficulties. Those of you who don't live under a sound-proof rock probably know all the news. But in any event, a brief highlight of what's been going on recently.

Whitney Houston past away last Saturday, the day before the Grammy's. In her illustrious career, she sold over 170 million albums and singles world-wide. She is the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits ("Saving All My Love for You"; "How Will I Know"; "Greatest Love of All"; "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)"; "Didn't We Almost Have It All"; "So Emotional" and "Where Do Broken Hearts Go.

Jennifer Hudson sang a moving tribute to Whitney Houston the following day.

Also during the Grammy's, Bon Iver won Best New Artist! Apparently, someone forgot to tell the Academy that he's been making phenomenal music for 4 years now...but nevertheless, publicity towards good artists making good music is always appreciated.

I would finish off without mentioning Adelle, because I find that listening to her reminds me of the terrible pain whales feel upon being harpooned, but the fact that she won 6 awards bears some sort of saying.

So, RIP Whitney Houston, you will be missed. Congratulations Bon Iver. Though you should have won it years ago. And Adelle...apparently people seem to like you.

Keep rocking, folks!
