So let get get to the big news right away: I’m officially planning on retiring from music reviewing. Yeah, really. I did say before that there’s going to be a time where I’m not going to be doing this anymore and that time is quickly coming. My heart isn’t in it to do this anymore and I want to move on to the next stage of my life, which is making comic books. I’m currently working on improving myself as an artist and writer and I’m developing a comic book that I plan to release sometime next summer or fall. But there are lists that I want to do before I make my retirement official. First is the Worst and Best lists of 2020 that will continue as scheduled. Then, in the first two months of 2021, I will release two final lists and my final posts on this blog: the Worst Number One Songs list and the Best Number One Songs list. I’ll be looking back at 60+ years of Billboard history and put together the best and worst of all the songs that hit number one on the Hot 100. It is unfortunate that I won’t be doing this any longer, but my heart and mindset has shifted to a new passion and I wish the best for the new generation of music reviewers. To longtime readers, I thank all of you for keeping me going this long. As for new readers, well, you got hundreds of posts that you can read up on, so have fun with that.

That’s all the updates I have for now. Stay classy, you lovely people.

  1. I found your post about two years ago and have been a huge fan of your reviews. I will miss reading new post from you but I will continue to come to your site and look at old postings from you. Best of luck to you in your future endeavors. You’re going to do great in your new career path.


  2. I guess all good things have to come to an end. B-HOP there will be rising bloggers waiting to fill your shoes. You showed us your opinions through some memes funny enough to put a smile on anybody. The last random WTF lyrics gave me a clue we were coming to the end of this blog.
    I posted a short video on your best/worst of 1959 that says all that needs to be said.
    As Casey Kasem says “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars”

  3. no!! you are one of favorites critic’s. I don’t want you to leave. plus I’ve only been reading your blog for 3 month’s.


  4. For your next album review, I suggest you do the new Fiona Apple album. It’s her first in eight years and it’s already getting rave reviews(100% on metacritic so far). I’m going to check it out myself soon and tell you what I think, but I suggest you check it out and review it.


  5. Keep your browser on this site for the latest posts and over five hundred posts from the archive there is always something to read during the hunkering down across America.


  6. Looking forward to your 2010s lists revisions. Want to let you know I’m starting my own music review website D’Orazi Hit Parade right when the new year and new decade begins Jan. 1st. The first thing I’ll be doing is The Ones of the ‘10s where I’ll be giving my analysis and the stories behind every number one song of the 2010s up to the present. Can’t wait to launch it!

  7. It is great you are revising your worst of lists since time has a way of changing things including ones minds. The New Year and decade provides an opportunity to make correction and revisions on old posts. Hope you had a merry Christmas and may the best be with us in 2020.
