John Waite in Orlando, new stuff from the Cars and Coldplay

So, my first trip to Orlando’s Plaza Theater Live tonight to see John Waite.  Waite made his initial impression when the Baby’s hit it big in the 80’s, and followed those hits with a few of his own as well as a couple with Bad Religion.  I’ll provide a review later in the week: of the show and the venue!

A few other random thoughts for today:

  • Coldplay’s new single “Every Drop is a Watefall” sounds great and has a fresh new sound.
  • I’m also guiltily digging the Cars new “Sad Song.” I loved the Cars sound in the 80’s despite their passionless live performances. But, that was 25 years ago. Since the, Bassist and the voice of all my favorite Cars tunes, Benjamin Orr died of Pancreatic cancer, and the rest of the band members have hit or are approaching 60. But, this new tune sounds as good as their classic 80’s stuff. Obviously, Ric Ocasek still has what it takes.

Share your thoughts, we'd love to hear...
