Music Charts Magazine® History

– Song for the month of August 2014:

Billy Joel Piano Man

Billy Joel - Piano Man - Music Charts Magazine Song of the Month for August 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Piano Man” is the first single released by Billy Joel. It was released on November 2, 1973, and has been on several albums. Billy Joel’s first major hit and his signature song, the song peaked at #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in April 1974.

“Piano Man” is a fictionalized retelling of Joel’s experience as a piano-lounge singer for six months in 1972 at the now defunct Executive Room bar in Los Angeles, located near the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue. Joel has stated that all of the characters depicted in the song were based on real people. Joel had moved from New York to L.A. to record his first album, Cold Spring Harbor which was marred by a mastering error by the album’s producers at Family Productions, the first label that signed Joel. After this bad experience, Joel wanted to leave his contract with Family Productions for Columbia Records, but the contract that he’d signed made this very difficult. So Joel stated that he was “hiding out” at the bar, performing under the name Bill Martin, while lawyers at Columbia Records tried to get him out of his first record deal.

The verses of the song are sung from the point of view of a bar piano player who focuses mainly on everyone else at the bar: an old man, John the bartender, the waitress, businessmen, and bar regulars like “real estate novelist” Paul and US Navy sailor, Davey. Most of these characters have unfulfilled dreams, and the pianist’s job is to help them “forget about life for a while.” The chorus, in bar-room sing-along style, comes from the bar patrons themselves, who plead, “Sing us a song, / You’re the piano man; / Sing us a song tonight. / Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody, / And you’ve got us feeling all right.”

The Hotdisc chart is compiled from DJs and industry professionals’ ratings of songs currently being promoted on the Rush Released CD. They are not airplay charts, as airplay charts cannot work in Europe because there are no terrestrial country stations. The hundreds of country programmes on air which we service are likely to play a particular song only twice at most in a three month period, therefore rendering airplay charts insignificant in Europe. It works well in America where there are plenty of non-stop country stations but it does not work here. Any Airplay Chart you may see claiming to provide this service is bogus and Hotdisc does not condone these charts at all. They are misleading at best for the reasons stated.

The Hotdisc charts are put together weekly using ratings supplied by DJs who give scores to every song on the last three months’ editions of Rush Released. The scores are averaged out per week to give an accurate guide to the songs which are being championed by the industry. The aim is to showcase the songs which the industry professionals are flagging up as quality songs. This is a very useful exercise as it is free of politics, hype and rigging and done solely on merit!

Music Charts Magazine - NEW DISCOVERY - Veronica Ballestrini - Featuring song "Cookies and Cream" - Photo by: Mackenzie Laroe - August 2014Music Charts Magazine® Presents – “NEW DISCOVERY” – “Veronica Ballestrini“- for the month of August 2014.

Looking for some “New” music to add to your player and can’t find anything that blows you away?

Check out this Music Charts Magazine® “NEW DISCOVERY” Interview with “Veronica Ballestrini” and be prepared to be excited knowing there is still 100% awesome music out there that you still have not heard.

After you listen to this great radio interview pasted below of “Veronica Ballestrini” we are sure you will be glad you found this “New Discovery” and Veronica’s song “Cookies and Cream” to add to your music playlist.

 

 

Veronica Ballestrini learned early on the value of our modern social media phenomenon. Over the last several years, in fact, her fan base has exploded exponentially, spreading to all corners of the globe.

 

With one modest dream and an Internet connection, the enthusiastic yet mature-beyond-her-years singer from Waterford, Connecticut, has raised more than a few eyebrows with her self-made success story.  as Jon Caramanica wrote in the New York Times, “… When someone like Ms. Ballestrini arrives essentially unannounced and begins to attract attention, it’s significant.” The staggering numbers on her social network sites are proof that Veronica has that special ability to connect with people. She has amassed more than 4 million views of her videos on YouTube, and her online fans and followers number well into the hundreds of thousands.

 

Veronica’s 2009 debut album, What I’m All About, capably demonstrated her unique take on the modern Pop-Country sound.Veronica Ballestrini - Music Charts Magazine's New Discovery for the month of August 2014 - Photo by: Mackenzie Laroe She released three singles and videos from the record (“Amazing,” “Out There Somewhere,” “Don’t Say”), propelling her into the consciousness of Country music fans around the globe and earning more than a million views of her videos on CMT.com alone.

 

“It makes my soul happy to know that music music has affected someone’s life for the better. Some of these songs I have written at my lowest times, feeling alone and broken. It’s good to know we’re not alone in these moments. To be able to reach people through music is something special. In 2011, Veronica began work on her Gotta Make A Change project, a process that set in motion her inspirational “Gotta Make A Change” tour. Throughout the summer, Veronica performed shows at various camps, festivals, Girl Scout events and women’s correctional facilities across the U.S. to help spread the project’s motivational message.

 

“Life is full of struggles. We stumble, we fall down, and in those moments we feel we will never get up again,” Veronica says “Sometimes all it takes is one person to say or do something to help you to see life in a new perspective and inspire you to get up and make a change. Life will never be pain free, we just have to learn to embrace the pain and find strength.”

 

Veronica released two singles in 2012 titled “Temporary Fix” and “Don’t Give Up On Me”. The music videos combined garnered over 1.5 million views on YouTube.

Ballestrini spent most of 2013 on tour with Secondhand Serenade, Alex Goot, and ‘The Voice’ singer Juliette Simms. and traveled around the country with the ‘Fiesta Movement’ representing Ford. Veronica shot a car commercial for the Fiesta, where her duet with Secondhand Serenade titled “La La Love” is featured.

Veronica Ballestrini - Music Charts Magazine's New Discovery for August 2014 - Photo by: Mackenzie LaroeThe last three years Veronica has been writing songs for her new project. As she says in her own words “I wanted this new album to perfectly reflect what I’ve been up to… It has been a crazy ride, there have been many ups and downs. My happiness and heartbreak wrote this album.” Her sophomore album “Flip Side” is set to release June 17th, 2014, produced by Brandon Metcalf at Destiny Nashville. The first single off of the album is “Cookies and Cream”. Veronica’s most focused and polished effort to date.  “Cookies and Cream” reflects Veronica’s growth as a more mature singer and a more seasoned songwriter. It’s a process that she acknowledges is a natural evolution in her artistry.

“I’ve been hurt, I’ve been broken, I’ve made mistakes, but I’ve also had the best days ever, and I’ve written songs about all these times” Veronica says. “I am excited to share what I’ve been up to. I’m writing from my heart about issues and things I’ve experienced, and hopefully people can identify with that.”
