Walking into the bathroom, he went right up to the mirror and looked himself in the eye—and that’s when he knew.

It was already too late. Too late to try talking himself out of pursuing her. She had left him aching, craving much more of her company.

And although they had been together since high school, he didn’t feel this way about Amber—and now he could see that he never had. Raw and exciting passion was a definite first for Michael Frost.

But how did you break up with the girl you lived with? Did you just leave? And when would he tell her? Where would he go? And what if things didn’t work out with Priscilla Bauer—would he want to come back to Amber?

These questions strained him, but still they were no match for the unforgettable evening he’d had at Emerald Leas: The soulful music that had scored the occasion. The profound love she had clearly had for her grandmother. Her palpable grief. The formidable efforts she’d made to smile and graciously accept condolences from her guests.

Not to mention the unforgettable hours they had spent together in her bed.

Despite everything, Michael smiled ear-to-ear as he stepped into the shower reliving every moment. More than anything else in the world, he wanted to learn more about Priscilla Bauer and he wouldn’t let anything get in the way of that. The mere idea of seeing her again excited him and made him feel happier than he’d felt in years, since he was a young boy.

The pulsing hot water hitting his back felt amazing, almost therapeutic, so Michael stood under the spray longer than usual, allowing himself this time alone to think. He realized that he’d been feeling this change coming for over a year now—a vague unhappiness that meeting another woman had exposed, in high definition.

Millenia Black’s Top Ten Musical Groups of All Time!

Wow, this was a pretty tough one, but I had so much fun putting this list together!

As a de facto music connoisseur, I think it’s almost impossible to confine your all-time favorite bands to a paltry ten picks, therefore I have to kick things off with a few who didn’t make the list simply because I ran out of room! Honorable mentions go to: The Beach Boys. The Temptations. Air Supply. The Eagles. And of course—The Beatles. The awesomeness of these groups is so great, this tens list simply couldn’t hold them!

 #10. Fleetwood Mac

 Let’s see…what can I say about Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac? “Dreams” is my absolute favorite song of theirs—it’s simply divine. Listening to this gem of a song from the 1977 Rumours album is like pampering your eardrums! And it brings me right back to riding around with my mom in her Cougar running errands. The sweet days in life. “Rhiannon” and “Little Lies” aren’t bad either. 😉

 #9.JoDeCi

 I’ve heard this R&B band referred to as the “original Spanish Fly.” Well, considering that I was in the passionate throes of puberty when sexy hits like, “Forever My Lady,” “Stay,” and “I’m Still Waiting” hit the airwaves, I guess I might have to agree!

#8. Journey

 Steve Perry. Need I say more? Pitch-perfect Steve freakin’ Perry. Having grown up in the 1980s, hit classics like “Don’t Stop Believin,'” “Open Arms,” “Faithfully,” and “Who’s Cryin’ Now” take me right back to the good old days!

 #7. Simon & Garfunkel

 Harmony, anyone? Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel have one of the best harmonizing vocal sounds in musical history! “Hello Darkness, my old friend…” Who doesn’t get goose bumps every. single. time. they hear that opening? “Bridge Over Troubled Water”? Oh, just another musical masterpiece! And of course they have many, many others. Bottom line? Simon & Garfunkel is what the art of vocal performance is all about!

#6. The Commodores

 I often get hits that Lionel Ritchie had as a solo artist mixed up with The Commodores, which was a group that made timeless music still in heavy rotation today. “Brickhouse”? Just an American staple. And I’ve always thought “Three Times a Lady” was a Lionel Ritchie solo, but nope, it’s The Commodores. And it happens to be once, twice, three times one of the most beautiful songs ever written!! But wait. It could tie with “Just to Be Close to You,” “Still,” or “Easy,” more lyrical masterpieces written by Ritchie but performed with the group. The Commodores make our jagged edges smooth. Love them!

#5. The Carpenters

 “We’ve Only Just Begun.” “Close to You.” Go listen to these hits right now. Songs so beautiful, they almost leave you in awe. Karen Carpenter had one of the most beautiful voices in the history of music. With her, hitting notes and staying on pitch was completely effortless and natural, her voice was so pure and clean. In all honesty, I could probably listen to this woman sing for the rest of my natural life!

#4. The Bee Gees

 Staying Alive! One thing’s for sure—you could never get The Bee Gees mixed up with anyone else! Barry Gibb’s high falsetto is a musical trademark and I grew up loving their music. Even now, most of their songs sound like they could’ve been released yesterday. Some of my favorites: “You Should Be Dancing,” “Too Much Heaven,” “Night Fever,” “If I Can’t Have You,” “More Than a Woman,” “How Deep is Your Love,” and of course, “Stayin’ Alive.” Okay, I’ll leave it there. Really.

#3. Bob Marley & the Wailers

 Is this love that I’m feeling? Oh, man. There’s just something about the rhythm of reggae in general, but Bob Marley’s music is definitely in a league of its own! Just ask John Grogan, author of the bestselling memoir, MARLEY & ME. Bob’s soulful delivery magically transcends cultures, achieves social reform and lives in the hearts of people all over the world. I even remember hearing it blasting in the street when I was in France! Even the French love Bob! I can’t list favorites. Pick one, any one. Chances are I adore it!

#2. The Jackson 5

 Okay, wait. I’m still debating whether or not they should be my #1… I mean, it doesn’t get much better if you’re looking for a fantastically diverse string of hits. From “I Want You Back” to “Dancing Machine” to “Never Can Say Goodbye” to “Who’s Loving You” to “Got to Be There” to the beautiful and precious, “Ben,” the Jackson 5 have way too many mainstream hits in their catalogue to play favorites. And let’s face it—Michael Jackson was in a league of his own even then!

Which leads me to #1. May I have a drum roll please? Because my #1 FAVORITE MUSICAL GROUP of all time may surprise you…

#1. Bread!

 Seriously? Yep, you read that right. Bread. This. is. music. Talk about a catalogue of pure magic! Disguised as music for the masses, of course!

 As a group, Bread was led by lead vocalist David Gates and produced some of the most gorgeously pristine and timelessly melodic masterpieces ever. I think they’re like right up there with Beethoven! “Aubrey” has to be one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded, hands down. And jewels like, “Make it With You,” “If,” “Everything I Own,” solidify Bread as pure musical genius—and my favorite musical group of all time! Thanks for reading!

Clare’s Comics Catalogue – The Ether

Matt Garvey – The Ether I’m back, with yet another title you *need* to add to your comics catalogue. The latest creation from the mind of Matt Garvey – The Ether. I reviewed Matt’s last title, Transfer, a little while ago and have been waiting for The Ether to be published since then. So far Matt has created comics featuring punk-rock toilet humour (Chunks), a steampunk-esque female private detective (Cordelia Swift) and a high-tech gangster story (Transfer). The Ether is unlike ANY of those. I can only give a brief summary of the plot. Anything more in depth is going to […]
