Demi Lovato shows true vulnerability with ‘Dancing With The Devil… The Art Of Starting Over’

One of my favorite songs on the album is “ICU (Madison’s Lullaby),” which is dedicated to her younger sister Madison De La Garza. The story of the song is what makes the track truly beautiful to me. After her near fatal overdose in 2018, De La Garza greeted her sister who wasn’t able to see when she first woke up in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) due to temporary blindness. The title of the song has a double meaning, the first being to represent the Intensive Care Unit and the other meaning “I see you” as Lovato promises to be there for her sister from now on.

This Week’s Playlist: fall

I must confess I am obsessed with music. The earliest memories that I have are connected to dancing with my mom to any and every genre imaginable. It did not matter what kind of music it was, as long as I could dance to it. Sometimes I could even convince my Mom to take out her old flute and play the songs she had memorized from her marching band days.

‘Letter To You,’ a simple, meaningful revival of the E-Street Band

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that everyone who calls the Garden State home has, at the very least, heard of “The Boss,” Bruce Springsteen. And now, the Boss is back — though he’s definitely a bit different.
