The cassette tape version of Christmas in the Stars is now extremely rare and pricey, as are playable versions of the LP. Rhino Records released the album in CD format in 1996, and it is often available from Amazon and other retailers. The enterprising firm Christmas LP to CD has a few of the LPs in their original jackets available for $17 (certainly not playable at that price), as well as a much larger number of CD copies at $24.00. See the sidebar for details.
Every parenting experience is singular and distinct, and the best music about motherhood acknowledges that specificity while still touching on greater themes about joy and sacrifice that can resonate with any listener. And if you're looking for something specific to capture your mother-daughter bond, there are plenty of options for that as well.
It's well documented that rapper and producer Kanye West had a close relationship with his mother, Donda West, who unfortunately, died in 2007 after surgical complications. The touching 2005 song was just one token of his affection.
"I Can't Make You Love Me" was written by Nashville writers Mike Reid and Allen Shamblin, who were well-noted for their successes in the country music arena. The song was rewritten many times before being finalized, months later. "We wrote, most every week, in Mike's basement," Shamblin told Peter Cooper in an interview with the Nashville Tennessean. "And we'd worked on this song for more than six months. One day, he said, 'Come up to the living room,' where his piano was. He sat down and started playing this melody, and it was one of the most moving pieces of music I'd heard. I mean, it hit me in a hard way ... Instantly, I knew it was the best thing I'd ever been a part of." Reid and Shamblin were both country music songwriters, who according to some accounts originally wrote the song as a fast, bluegrass number. Upon slowing down the tempo considerably, they realized the song gained considerable power and thought about giving the song to one of three artists: Bonnie Raitt, Bette Midler or Linda Ronstadt. Eventually, the song made its way to Bonnie Raitt, who recorded the track for her eleventh studio album, Luck of the Draw (1991). Raitt co-produced the song with Don Was, while Bruce Hornsby provided a piano accompaniment.
After releasing their second cover album in 2007, Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA, which was well received by critics, but failed to produce a successful single, the band announced plans for a new cover album, that features cover versions of songs by "artists I don't think people would expect us to cover," according to member Shawn Stockman. On October 23, 2009, "I Can't Make You Love Me" was announced as Love's lead-single. The song was later released on October 27, 2009 through iTunes store. For the band members, "We wanted to stay true to our roots, and it's a very beautiful song. And with our sound, we gave it an R&B twist. It's always been a favorite of ours, and we hope people will fall in love with it again."
After the positive response of the iTunes Festival performance, Adele covered once again the track, during her first live album, Live at the Royal Albert Hall, recorded on 22 September 2011. She made further comment over the song, saying, "It blows me away" and further adding that she thought the song was "incredibly moving". Adele also commented on the emotions the song gives her, saying, "It makes me really, really happy and really, really devastated and depressed at the same time. It makes me think of my fondest and best times in my life, and it makes me think of the worst as well, and combined, probably is a recipe for disaster, but I do love this song. It's just fucking stunning."
An accompanying music video was filmed in Los Angeles in February 2014. It was conceptualised and directed by duo Jeff Nicholas and Jonathan Craven of The Uprising Creative. Actor Milo Ventimiglia plays Chopra's love interest and scenes include Chopra throwing coloured paint at Ventimiglia as part of celebrations for the Indian festival of Holi, as well as embraces between the couple and solo scenes with Chopra. According to NDTV, the video charts a fictional relationship that "goes from loving to hellish". Behind the scenes footage was released to Access Hollywood. It premiered in New York City on 30 April 2014. Gensler noted that the video also contained product placement for Nokia and Beats by Dre speakers.
In this corner, you have the well-meaning parents of the world. And in the other corner, Glenn Danzig, the corruptor of sons and daughters. Supposedly inspired by the PMRC hearings, this metal classic allowed Danzig to riff on eternal generation-gap themes.
Whitney Houston is known as one of the greatest vocalists in music history and it was well proved throughout her career. One of the best-selling singles of all time was her 1992 cover of the Dolly Parton hit "I Will Always Love You." The song broke many records, including Houston's longest-running No. 1 single and the longest-running top single from a movie soundtrack.
R&B is not always about love songs and heartbreak. Rather than dwell in their feelings, a handful of singers opted for a more lighthearted approach in their music. After jumpstarting her solo era with last year's booty anthem "Have Mercy," Chlöe kept the ode to curves going with "Treat Me." Built atop a sample of Bubba Sparxxx and the Ying Yang Twins' 2005 hit "Ms. New Booty," "Treat Me" is a self-confidence anthem.
Throughout the years, musical styles have reflected the society of the time and have evolved with changes in the world. Not only does music change with society but it changes with technological advances as well. As technology changes it can allow new styles to emerge and new ways for people to listen. From radio to television, and records to the internet, music and the way we consume it has dramatically changed in the past seventy years. Even the innovations in the technology used to create musical instruments and recording equipment has effected what styles and songs are made and popular within the music landscape. Throughout this section we will try to briefly cover the types of music that were popular since the 1920's up until the present day by providing lists of genres and artists as well as some historical context. Keep in mind a lot of this information is subjective and we have tried our best to cover the most popular elements of the history of music. **All lists in this section are in no particular order**
The way we listen to music has changed drastically throughout the past seventy years. For a very long time records and the radio were the predominant means of listening to your favorite songs. Despite numerous advances in technology, many artists today still release their albums on vinyl records as well as MP3s and CDs because many music fans still believe that vinyl records provide the best musical experience. The technology for records began in the 1800's with wax records and phonographs, and as technology advance the size, speed and material of the records changed. In the 1970's until the 1990's 8-tracks and then cassette tapes became another popular media with which to experience music due to their portability. Although they were developed in the 1980's, CDs (Compact Discs) and CD players did not become a popular way to listen to music until the middle of the 1990's when the technology became more affordable. CDs replaced tapes due to their greater storage capacities and better sound quality. CDs were the most popular way to listen to one's favorite songs until the middle of the 2000's when computer and internet technology advanced significantly to make MP3 format and MP3 players more viable means of entertainment. Apple's iPod was released in November of 2001 and changed the way we listen to music forever making it forever portable and allowing us to infinitely expand our music collections. With more and more advances in computer technology and increased internet capabilities, we have the ability to instantly listen to our favorite songs at a relatively low cost or for free with our computers, phones, MP3 players, and tablets thanks to instant streaming services like Pandora or Spotify and online shops like iTunes or Amazon. Television also influenced the way we listen to music with artists being able to reach national audiences through performances on talk shows, music showcases, and music videos on MTV. Now with popularity of video sharing websites like YouTube, many artists are being discovered through this medium and established artists can connect more quickly and deeply with their fans.
Like the sixties, the 1990's was a decade of extremes with under-produced, anti-establishment grunge bands and gangster rappers enjoying just as much success as the overly produced and studio manufactured pop groups. The decade was ruled by powerful singers with Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and Whitney Houston topping the charts. Many artists' personal problems including drug abuse and rap feuds overshadowed a lot of the talent during the decade as well, with the death of many popular musicians due to drug overdose and the murders of rappers like Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur.

Not all breakups are sad: some are happy affairs where you cut ties with the person who always rained on your parade. "You think you broke my heart, well, girl, for goodness sake. You think I'm crying on my own well I ain't."
Remember: These are the top 64 pop songs of the '90s, so there's a cutoff. As such, there's no "Ice, Ice, Baby" by Vanilla Ice or "All My Life" by K-Ci and Jojo. There's no Hootie and the Blowfish. Still, anyone who was alive and well in the '90s should know most, if not all, of these songs. They're bangers. After all, they were No. 1 hits. For anyone who is uninitiated, all songs have links. 2b1af7f3a8
