Music has the Ability to lift You from the Depths of Despair

Please share

Well the past week for one reason or another has been a ‘tough’ week for me. But alas I   always manage to get through it. Those that know me personally know I suffer from a form of Depression …it is actually common knowledge as I openly talk about it. NO not just being depressed or having the ‘blues’. It is a physical illness. But it is what it is.

However, I am also a strong individual and I always manage to find ways to self motivate myself through my creativity such as my writing. Talking of books in the last 2 weeks I have published 4 Books on in Kindle form ( E-book)
Twists of Fate
A Day in the Life
Dating on a Budget
Who is in Your Family Tree

However I also find I resonate with my music even more at these times. And with that I made two incredible discoveries. One NEW and the other was looking further into the background of a song I liked. AND it has certainly inspired me to try my best to keep going………. especially on the  path of life I have chosen and the Universe, in all HER wisdom has chosen for me. Not quite sure what SHE has in mind for my future but hey, I will continue on this path of creativity and discovery.


Firstly allow me share with you  the 4th Power on YOUTUBE

Postmodern Jukebox

Secondly, last year I discovered Postmodern Jukebox and the song ‘All about that Bass’

I looked further into the band behind it and discovered the talents of Scott Bradlee. How about I let him explain what they are all about as I share the email I received from Scott with you!…… Michael

Postmodern Jukebox

We take pop music back in time. Check us out on YouTube / iTunes / on tour


Hey there Michael,

Dust off the turntable, fix yourself a stiff drink, and make yourself at home. Welcome to the world of Postmodern Jukebox.

What is Postmodern Jukebox? To put it simply, it’s pop music in a time machine. It’s today’s hits as they would have sounded if they were recorded decades ago, by the stars of yesteryear. But, thanks to the amazing community that has grown around this concept, it’s become so much more than that.

I started putting Postmodern Jukebox videos on YouTube back when I lived in a basement apartment in Queens, NY, and I’ve continued making them ever since. Every Thursday, I release a new Postmodern Jukebox (or ‘PMJ,’ if you’re hip like that) video that puts a different popular song through the ‘vintage’ filter, with the help of a large rotating cast of some of the best musicians and vocalists in the world.

There are literally HUNDREDS of these videos in the PMJ YouTube library, so that’s a great place to start. The Postmodern Jukebox universe is not just online, though. You can also experience PMJ live on tour all over the world and see these incredibly talented performers bring these arrangements to life. It’s the New Year’s Eve party in Old Hollywood that Sinatra would have attended; come dressed in your most glamorous attire and dance the night away to the songs of today as you’ve never heard them before. 

Most importantly, this is a community. What started in my basement apartment became a YouTube phenomenon – and then a touring phenomenon – all thanks to amazing people like you that know the importance of keeping real, live music alive. From this moment on, consider yourself a part of Postmodern Jukebox. We’re building this very special place together, and the adventure is just beginning. But for now, the night is young. Let’s fire up the Jukebox and enjoy another tune.
