Farr More Content Now http://www.butlercountytimesgazette.com/article/20140417/NEWS/140419321/1013/ENTERTAINMENTLIFE The Colombian-born singer-songwriter is everywhere at the moment. You can find her all over the music charts, TV's "The Voice," and numerous commercials for products from teeth-whiteners, perfume and yogurt to Target stores.
Speaking of her prescription for success, she's about to take "Medicine" to the country music charts.
Is there anything this woman can't do? I'm guessing not. Her latest album, "Shakira," is [...]]]>

Boy George has returned with a new album, appropriately titled, "This Is What I Do."
I have to admit, I was waiting in line at the bank when this new song came across the radio that caught my attention. I mean I listened and thought to myself, "Could it be? No, that can't be Boy George." But it was. His new song, "King Of Everything," was playing on the radio. [...]]]>

Fifty years, as a matter of fact. I was in middle school, though we called it junior high back then. And there was never a better time to be entering adolescence.
President Kennedy had been shot in November, and grownup America was in a pretty dark mood that winter. But something was growing in America's youth, and [...]]]>

Their earliest recordings were available - through obscure music labels (Swan, Veejay, MGM) - in the U.S. in 1963.
