Patience is a virtue

For Sixto Diaz Rodriguez, it's still incredible that 38 years after the release of his "Cold Fact" album, he is finally getting some recognition and respect. It's an amazing story.

In Your Eyes

So if you're writing a song, what body part do you think of first? Well, according to this research project, it depends on the genre of music.
Across all of the categories, the eyes are most frequently mentioned body part (Hall & Oates, "Private Eyes"), with the exceptions of hip hop, which places a firm emphasis on the posterior (Sir Mix a Lot, "Baby Got Back") and blues (Louisiana Red, "Keep Your Hands Off My Woman") and gospel music (The Gospel, "Put Your Hands Together"), which are respectively focused on the keeping off of one's hands and the clapping or raising of one's hands.
