There is no question that today, all computers really need to have the best in security for all of your needs from word processing, keeping your programs and files clean and organized, but also making sure the life of your PC, is a life well spent. I have used so many different brands of security software which have been mixed, and some independent brands have really stood out in value and care for your computer, like Vipre and Bitdefender, which have been strong independent brands that have delivered on their promise. But those As Seen On TV brands, haven't made it completely worth while, like the Fix Me Stick. When I have tried the Fix Me Stick on my laptop computer, it really didn't deliver at getting to the hardest nooks and crannies that can plague your PC like malware and Trojans. I have honestly gotten better at protecting my PC from those problems with assertive antivirus programs. The Fix Me Stick does rank a bit higher than those overpriced brands of security software like Norton and McAfee, but overall I found the Fix Me Stick didn't make my computer completely feel protected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wasted Foreigner, July 19, 2016
It is so sad that someone like Mariah Carey has been very poor and weak in regards to her songs that she has covered. Honestly, throughout Mariah Carey's career, she really has been very poor at really finding the right songs that have matched her soul in covers, and sonnets from her heart. Musically, she does not have the ear and voice for covers within the soul that songstresses like the great Whitney Houston and Celine Dion have had with covers and delivered from the soul overall. Hard to believe that there were only two cover songs that Mariah Carey had delivered on very well. Her rendition of the Jackson 5's I'll Be There, and Endless Love with Luther Vandross in 1994. But otherwise, it has been more of a waste from Mariah Carey overall. Her rendition of Foreigner's I Want To Know What Love Is, has a few problems overall. One is that she does not sing a key verse that Lou Gramm did so well, "This Mountain I Must Climb Feels Like The World Upon My Shoulder...", a huge bust from Mariah. Second of all, Mariah Carey sounds cheaper with her 80's covers over the years: Against All Odds by Phil Collins, Journey's Opens Arms and Def Leppard's Bringing On The Heartbreak from 2003's Charmbracelet. This is one song I would not recommend for any die hard Mariah Carey fan, and for new ones alike. She does not want to know what love is, after her wasted past few marriages, and with the musical ear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soulful Goodbye, July 18, 2016
This review is from: Body And Soul (MP3 Music)
It is honestly and absolutely so sad whenever someone young talented and gifted passes away early, without really showing just how dear and strong their talents were and precious their soul was, before they have died. Unfortunately, Amy Winehouse is a example of a songstress that could've been bigger, but died way too young. Because she couldn't get her own life together, and fell apart from drug and alcohol abuse because of so much loss in her life. She will always be known as a one album wonder in the U.S. with Back To Black. But she might have been broken, but could've had a voice that was bigger at life and heart. Her last single recorded before Amy lost her life, was a soulful and intimate duet with the great Tony Bennett with Body & Soul. The song which was released as a part of Tony's Duets II album, and on Amy's posthumous Lioness: Hidden Treasures. It is a somber farewell to someone that could've been bigger in life, if she stayed on the straight and narrow. Amy had a soulful voice that still was worth while, despite her death at 27 years old. She & Tony had beautiful chemistry together, and more could've been added in song, if Amy was still alive today. Five years after Amy Winehouse passed, I am constantly reminded of why more could've been done with her, and yet she went too soon. This is a great download for die hard Amy Winehouse fans, and anyone whom had never heard one of her songs before.

This review is from: No More Lonely Nights (MP3 Music)
There is so much that cane be said about Paul McCartney. He has shown to be a very distinctive and classy songwriter for over 50 years as a part of The Beatles and for his solo work. But throughout the 1980's, Paul McCartney did have a few hits, but his music overall wasn't solid on his own, as it once was when he was part of The Fab Four, and when he had formed Wings in the 1970's. Still, Paul had still made a few staples songs that did stand the test of time, while not as strong as songs like Maybe I'm Amazed and Let 'Em In. No More Lonely Nights from his lackluster 1984 film, Give Me Regards To Broad Street is actually one of those better songs he crafted. The song definitely shines a light to where his songs weren't getting the recognition that once had been shown. The song is a very upbeat standard of Paul's solo legacy, well-conjured and soulful from the voice that made the song. If you are just discovering Paul McCartney, or are a die hard Sir Paul fan, than I suggest you download this song.

This review is from: Sorry [Clean] (MP3 Music)
It is so sad that whenever someone is talented, they really throw their voice away, and no longer show that they were once talented, and instead scared with strife and heartbreak. Sadly, Beyonce' Knowles has been one of those "products" that has stopped showing her own voice. Instead, she has been forced to severely overexpose herself, where other artists haven't even been able to deliver in sound and soul from the voice within. It is too sad that Beyonce' Knowles has been such a joke, that her voice tragically died over a decade ago, after she and Destiny's Child broke up. A few years ago, when she came out with a surprise record in 2013, it really has been more of a joke, and showed that she does not want to flex her vocals into higher territory. Her 2016, "surprise, not surprise joke" album Lemonade has been another disaster, focusing in on a scarred heart, with a upcoming split between her and Jay-Z whom had cheated on her. Most of the tracks were pathetic and Sorry, her latest single from the album is another weak song from her.. The song is chinsy, cheap, and is another faded joke in song. She really hasn't grown up enough. With more bad songs like this, I'd say to Beyonce' Knowles, retire from music and start her life over again. She has a lot of scars from her breakup with Jay-Z that need more healing than her career could show. Another failure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Made It Again????, July 15, 2016
The past few years have been very sad musically for Britney Spears. Her last album Britney Jean from 2013 was a absolute failure musically and professionally. Now, all her music has shown is that she has just been getting her audience through Las Vegas with her stage show. Musically, she had not been able to rectify and redeliver from the past decade when she was a teen idol. Her last few songs, Work B&&&& and Perfume really were not showstoppers compared to when she did Oops I Did It Again or "Til The World Ends. The songs were not the best cup of tea for her musically. Her latest song tries to be more of a upbeat collaboration, but Britney Spears doesn't deliver as she once did before. Her latest song with newcomer rapper G-Eazy, Make Me, really lags from her voice and soul, which feels more jaded into the Rihanna territory assured. Britney doesn't flex her vocals strongly here with ease at all on the song. Overall, if you are a die hard Britney Spears fall, you will want to download the song, but if you are new to her music, say no to this song, and go back to Baby One Me Time instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rumored Is, Lindsay Lohan Is Dead, July 15, 2016
This review is from: Rumors (MP3 Music)
It is honestly so sad whenever someone who at one point was young and talented, but has thrown their own voices away from drug and alcohol abuse, and from neurotic behavior overall. Lindsay Lohan use to be someone that was talented with acting in films like The Parent Trap, but as a singer she really was not just pathetic and poor and tried to corner more of the tween market, not showing she had more of a sense of growth as a actress and singer. It is just too bad and very somber that she has been so cornered with drug abuse, and the heartbreaking rocks that have been her parents, that cared more about her career than her life. Lindsay's debut song Rumors, was also cheap and put her career more into the category of being like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Sadly, Lindsay not only has not deliver in her voice, but also she has not had any serious growth as a songstress. I think with Lindsay's troubles, she really had not delivered better, in fact with her behavior and poor choices in life, Lindsay Lohan has delivered worse overall. Maybe her being away from the Hollywood scene, will cause her to finally straighten her own career, and probably save her life from depression and denial.

This review is from: Fallin' (MP3 Music)
It is so hard to believe that it has been 15 years since Alicia Keys came out of the music industry, and has shown that her work, her voice and her style have been both sophisticated, and her songs have been brilliant and shown a young woman who has written soulful and brilliant songs that have never gotten out of style. It is so sad that many of today's divas like Rihanna, Beyonce' and Katy Perry, just haven't even shown a brilliance in soul and songwriting that has really stood the test of time. It is so sad that many of today's divas so far never will have Alicia Keys style and strength in song. When she came out with Songs In A Minor back in 2001, it really was a game changer when a lot of soul music was deeply overlooked in regards to rap and hip hop throughout the 90's. The song that started it all for Alicia Keys, Fallin', still remains simply soulful and striking from each and every not Alicia put into the song. She definitely showed that she can not only sing, but Alicia can have style in song from beginning to end. I like this is song a whole lot. If you have never heard a Alicia Keys song before, well this is the first one I suggest you download for your music library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where He Belonged, July 13, 2016
There is so much that I have honestly loved about Joe Cocker. Musically, he was one of the underrated but beautiful vocalists I have ever enjoyed listening to on radio. There will be never another soulful giant like he was. Musically as he was going into the 1980's, Joe really was still on the mend from years of drug and alcohol addiction, and his career was derailed for years. But he still had a lot to show from the inside with his voice. The song that really gave Joe Cocker a new generation of fans in the 80's, Up Where We Belong from "An Officer & A Gentleman," remains one of the gifted movie songs that had ever been composed. The song which earned a Oscar back in 1983, is definitely worth listening to each and every time. Joe and Jennifer Warnes really had a lot of chemistry together in the song, and that still clicks today, as it did back in the early to mid 80's. If you honestly had never heard a Joe Cocker song before, well this is one of those tracks that I have absolutely recommended, and I still do. Right up there with Joe in heaven, up where he belongs.

This review is from: My Love Is Your Love (MP3 Music)
It is so sad that of today's divas, they sincerely do not have voices anymore that spoke from the soul of the voice within. Yet, when I do think of today's divas in R&B, Beyonce' and Rihanna, etc. they sincerely do not have voices that speak from the soul anymore. They will never be soulful and beautiful as was the great Whitney Houston. If there is one thing that I have adored about Whitney is that she always sang from the soul brilliantly. But not only do I think of Whitney alone, I also do think if her one and only baby, Bobbi Kristina Brown, whom tragically died in 2015 from abuse from drugs and severe depression dealing with Whitney's death three years earlier. But when I do think of Whitney and Bobbi together as mother and daughter, I do think of so many of Whitney Houston's songs, and with the anniversary of Bobbi Kristina's passing, I do think of the two of them in song, and the song where Bobbi Kristina go her short start is My Love Is Your Love. The song is definitely soulful and very upbeat from the heart today, as it was back then in 1998 when it came out. Wyclef Jean wrote a very lovely song for Whitney Houston and it still is one of those songs that I love listening to. This is a must have download for die hard Whitney fans, and new ones alike.
