For quite some time now, I’ve been writing on another blog.
The name is Every Number One and it is a journey through every song that ever was #1 in the Billboard charts. Going backwards, until 1959.
It is quite different than Tangled Up In Music, because I don’t actually review the songs. Rather, I write about their background story, with quotes from the artist himself or bits of reviews from well-known websites/magazines.
Basically, you won’t hear me saying that I love a certain song or that I hate it, but you can learn a lot about how dozens of classics came to be, covering all decades, from The Beatles to Michael Jackson and to Adele.
Many of you may already be following Every Number One or be aware of it. I know I’ve liked posts, given comments and followed other blogs from behind it. The reasons why I wanted to keep the two blogs separate are a) because the purpose of them is completely different and b) because I wanted both to be judged for what they are individually, with no overlapping.
But then I thought it would be more fair for the blogging community that I’m part of to know that the same person is behind both blogs. I thought maybe some bloggers that enjoy the Stories Behind Classics Songs series on Tangled would be interested in more informative posts in the same vein. Or that maybe people reading about so many different artists each week on Every would want to also hear my personal opinion on some of them. It seems like the logical thing to do now.
So here’s the link to Every Number One
In the end, I’d like to give a shout-out to the most active people over there who constantly like and comment on my posts. I urge you to check out these wonderful blogs:
