Television has been tough without Lost, the Constant is still John’s favorite episode… Little Asian flare with wonder girls and Far East Movement… some old school songs from Bon Jovi and Cyndi Lauper… some movie soundtracks including Ghost and Jurassic Park…
 
 

  • Michael Giacchino – LOST Season 4 OST / The Constant
  • Best episode for one of the best shows. Incredible song, can’t watch this without tearing up.
    • Genre: TV
    • Year: 2008

  •  
     

  • Cyndi Lauper – Time After Time
  • Sadly, John didn’t know Cyndi Lauper sang this song, only knew her as the weird girl on Celebrity Apprentice. The rendition on The Voice was wonderful.
    • Genre: Pop
    • Year: 1983

Family Guy had a Street Fighter inspired scene last week which was hilarious, great timing with the recent launch of the Nintendo 3DS and Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition… that Jameson Whiskey commercial with the huge octopus is great every time its on… Whatever happened to O-Town… ABDC is back on, surprised this show is still running, considering how incredible the Jabbawockeez were and how average the crews this season look; Omarion is no longer a judge… John just rewatched the recent Karate Kid remake, as good as it is, not close to the original and the Kobra Kai… Marilyn Manson in talks to join Lindsay Lohan about Charles Manson… Kollaboration Boston took place this past weekend, a good friend of John’s, Vudoo Soul, was at the event…

 

  • Street Fighter 2 – Guile Stage
  • Like anyboy born in the 80’s, John played Street Fighter 2. He never played it in the arcade, but whipped out the $80 retail price to buy it for the SNES and spend countless hours going up against his brother. His character was Blanka, but clearly the best song in Street fighter history is the music on Guile’s stage.
    • Genre: Video Game
    • Year: 1991

  • Mozart – 3. Violin Concerto No. 3 Strassburg K. 215; 3rd Movement
  • This is such a great gem of a piece that John stumbled upon like probably many other people during the wonderful Jameson Whiskey commercial. The commercial is absolutely great, and the piece in the background lingered in John’s head that he absolutely had to find out more about the piece. It actually turns out that the same piece was in Master and Commander with Russell Crowe, which he and a lot of people never watched…
    • Genre: Classical
