To celebrate April Fools Day this month, this video acts as a followup to a video I made last year that takes a look at various songs where we are "fooled" by the lyrics, as in certain lyrics in a song that we often misintepret. Some are well known misintepretations, some aren't but it's still funny to look into what some people think they hear in music. It's important to laugh every now and then and I hope this video will help with that.

Congratulations everyone! We survived 2020! Last year was pretty rough but it's important before moving on to a new year, that we reflect on the previous year. The good, the bad, and the ugly that happened last year and take a brief pause to think of those who didn't make it into the new year. That is what this video is about, remembering some important people who have entertained us in different ways throughout our lifetime. Rest in Peace.

Before closing out 2020, I have one more album I want to talk about. This album is currently the second best selling album of all time, and had its 40th anniversary earlier this year. I'm of course talking about AC/DC's Back in Black.

In this video, we take a look at Black Sabbath's second album, Paranoid. This album is considered to be one of the first heavy metal albums ever made. It celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier this year.

This month will be the 50th anniversary of the day we lost Jimi Hendrix. I wanted to reflect on his first album with this episode of Awesome Albums. We take a look at The Experience's debut album, Are You Experienced, released in 1967. This video not only covers the songs released on the American release of the album, but also the three songs present only on the UK version of the album, as well as 3 songs that appear as B-sides to the album's singles.

Today we look at The Rolling Stones' 1974 album It's Only Rock 'n Roll. While they feel they were just coasting on the sucess of their previous albums, you have to admit the songs are still pretty good.

Welcome to Top "Ten" Tuesdays, a weekly top 10 list uploaded every Tuesday (yes I know I'm a couple days late), normally as a written article on the website, but I felt the best way to present this list is to also do a video. If you prefer to read the article, come on over to the Awesome Albums website:

Last time I said I would pick an album by an artist who got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. I decided to go with The Doobie Brothers and their 1976 album Takin’ It to the Streets. This album was significant to The Doobie Brothers’ history due to their change in sound beginning with that album but some believe that this album is what developed the sound in the mid to late 1970s, giving it a pretty important place in the history and evolution of music.

Welcome to 2020! But before we embrace the new year, I want to take a few minutes and reflect on 2019. More importantly, reflect on some of the great people who weren’t able to join us into this new year and decade.

We continue the Led Zeppelin story, and see what the band was up to in the second half of 1969. They not only released their first album in ’69, but their second album too. This album is significantly heavier than their first album but also with enough acoustic elements that foreshadow the sound of their third album. The band was so huge that there were already 400,000 people preordering this album!

I have a couple more anniversary videos I want to do before the end of the year. Today, we take a look at Led Zeppelin’s first album, which turned 50 years old in January of 1969. This video goes through the end of the Yardbirds, the personnel changes leading up to the creation of Led Zeppelin, explain the idea behind the name, and of course going through the music.

Ordinarily I talk about albums that are nostalgic to an older generation. Today, I’m going to talk about an album nostalgic to MY generation, Green Day’s American Idiot. This album had recently turned 15 years old, and I just had to talk about it. I wanted to talk about the music of course but also point out how much has changed in the music industry as well as bring up what were current events in 2004 that helped influence the making of the album.

We celebrate this Halloween a little differently this year with going over a conspiracy over an album. This conspiracy has been going on for 50 years, is Paul McCartney dead? In this episode, we explore the origin of the rumors and explore the clues seen on the album covers and the songs.

Today we are celebrating the channel’s 5 year anniversary and we’re going to look at something a little different today. Instead of looking at an album, we are going to come back to my first ever video Dark Side of the Moon and talk about the phenomenon when you play that album with the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz. Sync up the album with the third lion roar on the MGM logo and you’ll find random parts of the album matching up with what’s going on in the movie.

Today we are going to look at Supertramp and their most successful album, Breakfast in America. While initially a breakaway from their previous albums, they did something right giving them an album that sold over 18 million copies worldwide.

Following up with the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame video, I decided to pick Def Leppard and their 1987 album Hysteria. This album was massive with 7 singles in the US and sold over 25 million copies worldwide. This album has so much history, especially in their now one armed drummer. Definitely check this video out and see for yourself why this album is an awesome album!

This video is where I like to say thank you and farewell to the artists no longer with us, who we lost in the year 2018.

Although, I couldn’t mention everyone I don’t want to leave them out of my overall message. To those we lost last year, you may be gone but you won’t be forgotten. May you live on in your music and movies and to all of you thank you and farewell.

We return to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s great but tragic album, Street Survivors. I go into more detail what happened that awful day in 1977 that took 3 band members from one of the most iconic American bands.

Prepared to be afraid as we look at an album from the current decade as we look at the sequel to Alice Cooper’s Welcome to my Nightmare, titled Welcome 2 my Nightmare. This album includes many different genres of music as well as many unexpected guest appearances make it an album that’s so good it’s scary.
