The Bottom Line has been closed for eleven years, it closed January 2nd, 2004. I think about it all the time because I spent a great deal of my life there. One of the things I'm working on is an oral history viewed from the perspective of the performers who performed there.

They weren't in movies. They were inspired by movies. Perhaps by a specific film. Perhaps by a star. Or perhaps simply by the entire magical filmic experience. It's a broad definition. Here are fifteen really good songs, covering fifty years of pop music.

Lead Belly: Songster of Mythic Proportions

Stephen D. Winick

Lead Belly's life was a narrative of mastery and resistance, like Zora Neale Hurston's High John De Conquer or folklore's John Henry. His songs are a vast and varied banquet of Americana cooked up and served through the genius of one man.

Love, and How to Say It

Maggie Van Ostrand

Useless are today's most popular methods of expressing love: texting e-cards, and posting. Where are the passionate and moving love letters of our past? Written in cursive by the sender, we can actually see by that handwriting what their emotional state of mind was at the time.

Christopher Zoukis

The EP is nostalgic, rife with powerful melodies, and provides the perfect vehicle for Paladino's sometimes snarky, sometimes growling voice. Listeners who long for the embryonic days of rock n' roll -- the 1950s and 1960s -- won't be disappointed.

Don McNay

Some people think aiming to lose 175 pounds is insane. For me, it is the only way to get there. When I've set "impossible" goals in a business setting, I've always made them. I get excited and motivated. Small goals don't interest me at all.

My diverse taste in music, art and film is due to their influence, and my natural sense of style created out of these components. It wasn't intentional, but my big brothers made me pretty darn cool.

Michael Bialas

"I'm sorry. I'm just prattling on," she said. Her unnecessary apology came in the middle of a fascinating response about proudly growing up in Music City USA and how she first made an indirect connection to the industry in a carpool driven by a guy whose parents were "Rocky Top" songwriters Felice and Boudleaux Bryant.

Jordan Witzigreuter: "I wrote a bunch of songs -- 70 or so -- over the past two years, and only a few of those 70 were even considered for this album. I tend to like a song when I finish it, give it a week, and then I'm over it, so the ones that made the cut were the ones I still felt passionately about."

This is not the kind of careful, cautious, traditional race that the D.C. establishment would advise Rick to do, but he doesn't care -- because he believes that big money special interests are destroying the American economy for middle-class and working poor people.

Mike Ragogna | Posted 06.17.2014 | Entertainment
Mike Ragogna

For me, the collaboration is sort of akin to working with a lyricist. There's no lyrics in the score, so you're basically working with the scenes as lyric and trying to find a way to emotionally support what's going on with that.
