Can't Stay Alone Tonight
Can't Stay Alone Tonight
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Stay Alone, October 1, 2014
There is no question that when it has came down to great and outstanding albums, Elton John has always been one of a kind. In his latest album, The Diving Board, he has honestly shown that simplicity has made the best attempt at a great album, where as the case with everyone else trying to make the single be the most important factor, for artists like Beyonce', Rihanna and others. Can't Stay Alone Tonight, the second single from Elton's album is definitely just as strong in simplicity and intimacy as you had heard from Home Again last year. The song is definitely a great ballad, and one that holds up so well for hard core fans young and old. If you really haven't yet experienced The Diving Board, it is absolutely one album from start to finish I absolutely recommend because it absolutely is worth it and something that shouldn't stay alone tonight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Aretha In The Deep?, September 30, 2014
It has been a very long time since we've heard anything fresh and outrageous from the legendary Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklin. She has not made any new music for years. So when I had heard she was making a attempt to make new music again, I was very skeptical to hear her sound, and honestly she just doesn't have it at heart in her voice. Her cover of the mega-hit from Adele Rolling In The Deep, really isn't as outrageous and dynamic as when Adele recorded the song several years ago. It actually feels a bit weak, and Aretha doesn't really deliver at making the song her own. Hopefully, when Aretha's next album comes out soon, there will be better songs that can make her own, just like the way her late goddaughter did with music, the great Whitney Houston. We'll see if Aretha has more than Rolling In The Deep showed from her.

Song: C 1/2-

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is no question that there are so many software programs that have worked in the field of typing. Mavis Beacon has been one brand names of computer software that has delivered for over twenty years at good typing software. They have known how to really deliver the best at teaching people how to make a good impression at anyone from beginners to experts to really type their way to the top. Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing Powered By Ultrakey really cuts it down to the basics at typing your best and being more accurate at typing skills. It is a good beginners' template at cutting to the core of the matter for anyone who wants to learn the basics for getting into word processing. My one gripe about this software though is that it doesn't have the fun and games to appeal to younger gamers who have learned from the best. Still, it has good notice for your from taking dictation to measuring your posture and typing speed. If you have had earlier version of Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing and mastered it so well, you may want to pass this version up. But if you are just trying to learn the basics at typing your way to the top, this is the software for you.

Citizen Men's CA0310-05E Sport Eco-Drive Chronograph Watch
Offered by Savvy Watch
Price: $297.50

3.0 out of 5 stars Sporty Stopwatch, September 29, 2014
There is no question that watches these days have lost their appeal, trying to be more high-tech with a younger generation of watch owners, instead of keeping the quality of the timepiece. Citizen has shown that appeal so well, for several years. But honestly, they have lost that appeal. This Citizen Eco-Drive watch though does have the appeal that they have been known for in style, but more could be needed. This sporty solar chronograph is classy and keeps the appeal nicely in the watch, has good illumination, and very easy to read day, date and time. This one definitely holds up a little better than most of the chronographs that Citizen recently had made in design. It is a watch that definitely is worth the effort, but I do wish though that the strap could've been a bit more sturdy, than being one that is a little stingy. Still, I do suggest you give this one a shot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Almond Or Lemon??, September 29, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is no question that when it has came down to energy drinks, they both have been a hit and a miss when it comes to taste, and when it has came down to quality as well. Some of them might be because of the advertising like Red Bull, and others might be to get on the natural high. But overall, it also comes down to whether it is good overall. in the word and the taste. E-On is a new brand of energy drinks that seems to be more about the name, not about the delivery in taste. Their Almond Rush flavor is nothing more than the labeling on the can. The almond rush, doesn't taste exactly with any almonds in the drink. In fact, it actually tastes more like lemon, which is its primary ingredient. Overall, I was expecting much more from my money, and instead, I got a lot less overall. I definitely recommend another energy drink overall, in value, but by the word of the heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old-World Bathroom, September 28, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is no doubt that every house needs to have a bit of a makeover time after time. But out of all the rooms that need the most help, it is sometimes the small the small things in the bathroom that absolutely need the most delicate and simplest care. We sometimes needs to just step it up with holding our soap and soap dishes. When I had heard about Zenith Galahad and their bath accessories, I was very skeptical to see if they are worth the money, and they are. This three-piece bathroom collection works well on my sink with the simple soap dish, lotion/soap dispenser and toothbrush holder. It gives it a taste of a old-world style in the bathroom. It has a bit of elegance to the bathroom sink, at a affordable price. It definitely steps it up where as the case other brands like Joesph Joesph and O.X.O. do not. I suggest if you want a taste of style, I suggest you try Zenith Galahad.

ESQ Movado Men's 07301460 One Analog Display Swiss Quartz Orange Watch
ESQ Movado Men's 07301460 One Analog Display Swiss Quartz Orange Watch
Price: $250.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Orange Swiss Chronograph, September 27, 2014
There is no question that with so many watch brands, they have been so busy trying to be more about getting a younger generation with watches, but instead they have honestly sacrificed class and quality, with trying to capture a younger generation with really trashy designs. ESQ BY Movado used to be known for their quality and Swiss elegance in their watches, but last year they have lost themselves in sophistication. Their ESQ One series has been with mostly Swiss quartz timepieces for less, and losing stamina and class. Now with ESQ's One series, they have made their Swiss Quartz Chronograph and honestly the look of the watch in the orange silicone strap looks absolutely disgraceful. While it does have good movement, it lags better in the value. It has good sub-dials for the day and second hand and chronograph of the watch. But it could have better in water resistance and illumination from the hands of the watch, so they could glow in the dark. Overall, I have seen better from chronograph watches from Seiko. I would definitely pass this watch up for its value. It is sad that ESQ By Movado made with their One series, just how poor Citizen has shown in their Drive collection. Sacrificing class, by being more about trends and loss of value.

You & I (Nobody In The World)

4.0 out of 5 stars You, Him & Love, September 27, 2014
There is no question that there are very few and far between artists that really have made great songs this past year. John Legend has had a great cavalcade of songs already that have shown heart in his work from Ordinary People and and Everybody Knows. Last year, John hit the nail on the head with marriage being newly married and having the love anthem of 2013 with All Of Me. But for some it has been very hard to see him hit the nail on the head with a follow-up. You & I (Nobody In The World,) definitely follow in stride with what John Legend had shown in his heart and his songwriting. It definitely is a beautiful and sincere ballad that is worth his heart. If you have loved All Of Me, than you'll absolutely love this song from the heart. I absolutely recommend this for your music library.

3.0 out of 5 stars Saying Yes?, September 26, 2014
When it has came down to the members of Destiny's Child today, they honestly do not have the chemistry today, they honestly do not even have the chemistry they used to in their songs. It has honestly been well way too much about Beyonce' Knowles and not enough about the other members of the group.. Kelly Rowland has had some songs that have delivered like Dilemma with Nelly and Motivation other good songs, but Michele Williams hasn't had much luck delivering in the pop direction the way that it has been so much about Beyonce'. So bringing her and Kelly back in a song well, they just do not have it anymore. Say Yes with Beyonce & Kelly, just doesn't ignite with the chemistry they once had together. While it might be joyous for die hard Destiny's Child fans, the song doesn't have the heart they once had. Michelle has had one or two songs before like We Break The Dawn out there, but not enough to make this song deliver. She would do better if she had more on this song on her own.

1.0 out of 5 stars Booty This????, September 25, 2014
When it has came down to Jennifer Lopez, she honestly has one of the worst albums that has came out in 2014. Her album A.K.A. has honestly failed to impress not just in music, but sadly going very low in her voice and her heart. She really does not have the drive, within the way she used to, when she came out with On The 6 fifteen years ago. Her song Booty has to honestly one of the worst songs that she has came out with altogether. She and Iggy Azalea really do not have any chemistry whatsoever. It definitely is a low point in Jennifer worse than any of the songs that she has put out in years. This song is just as terrible as the case was with I Luv Ya Papi. If you really wish that Jennifer should've found better in her work, you are not alone. This song is not even worth the time, and the effort. It is time for Jennifer Lopez to retire!! This song is not even worth downloading and the money she recorded to make it.
