Carnival of Rock and Roll–February 2011

Even though my hometown and I have recently been buried under roughly 20 inches of snow (that's no joke or exaggeration, there literally was 20 inches that fell in 2 days and drifts of 3+ feet I shoveled from my driveway) I can smell something fun in the air. Just ever so slightly amongst winter's chill I can smell the smell of funnel cakes, rigged prize games and thrill rides of questionable safety... That's right it's carnival time again! Of course, at this carnival you don't have to worry about those rides of questionable safety, or that food of questionable nutritional value... it's all about the good stuff: Rock and Roll.

This month's carnival is actually quite brief, but still a couple of interesting things none the less, so enough waxing poetically/sarcastically, let's get to it.

Let's start off with something... controversial? Haha... well maybe... Let's start off with something about Journey submitted from Allyson at Bring Back Glam. Not exactly sure I agree with her claims, but still fun: Bring Back Glam - Don't Stop Believin' - The Best Rock Song Ever Written?

Donna from Top Dating Sites sent along a little list of some songs to get you all moving: 10 Songs You Instantly Have to Dance To

Ilya over at I Heart Noise shares a little bit about Sonic Youth and some of the albums they've released on their own label over the years: A Guide To…Sonic Youth Records / SYR

From The Pulse we just have a little something about a possibly resurgence of music in the UK: BRITISH MUSIC COMEBACK (Media & Business; Music; Marketing) « Blog Archive « THE PULSE

And last but not least, Danny from Danny Vittore sent along a couple of awesome... yes Danny I agree, awesome choices indeed...musical suggestions in: Five Awesome Bands That Will Broaden Your Horizons

And that's it... short 'n' sweet. Keep up the good work everyone and we'll see who turns up next month.

If you submitted your work to the carnival, but it wasn't chosen, don't fret. There aren't a lot of standards to be included, except to be about music, but I don't publish blatant advertisements, personal attacks on artists, celebrity gossip, things off topic or things I can't read (sorry, English only). Also, I'd appreciate if you only submit some of your best works, not short, few word posts and try to keep multiple submissions within reason, meaning you can send two or three articles at most, but not like six... if you spam the carnival with entries or with articles off topic you won't be included.

I still appreciate your contribution even if I didn't choose to include it and hope you won't hesitate to submit new work to next month's carnival.
