ROLL With It - "Roll" & "Rolling" Songs

Forgot to post this the other day...

 

On May 21, 2011 Adele scored her first No.1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Rolling In The Deep.” Topping the charts in over 20 countries, it became the best selling digital song over by a female artist in the US. It serves as a springboard for today’s music blog, songs containing “Roll” or “Rolling” in their title. “Rock & Roll” songs are excluded, as they are addressed in a forthcoming blog.

 

The title of the blog is a nod to Steve Winwood’s 80’s great of the same name, "Roll With It.” Interestingly, perhaps to avoid the possibility of a lawsuit, as Ed Sheeran recently battled, Winwood’s publisher eventually credited Motown songwriters Holland-Dozier-Holland with co-writing the song due to its resemblance to Junior Walker’s “(I’m A) Roadrunner.” Ed Sheeran’s recent lawsuit due to his song’s similarity to Marvin Gaye’s “Lets Get It On” has stimulated significant conversation regarding if different musical combinations are infinite, or are similarities inevitable.  So in addition to the “Roll” songs playlist, I include a playlist of stolen and sampled songs for your consideration. I think you’ll find them of interest.

 

I also step down a quick rabbit hole trip (though you can take a longer journey to Wonderland if you desire) to a few videos of John Krasinski’s “Lip Synch Battle” I think you’ll also enjoy.

 

I hope that this music and my blog truly serve as a “revival: a new presentation of something old,” a springboard to return to the music of your youth, or perhaps to find artists you want to discover anew. Rediscover the passion of music in your life. Live in the moment. Enjoy the moment. Love the moment. Listen to the MUSIC!
