Five best songs about Miami
By: Kareem Gantt
Sep 12, 2018
There is something about Miami that captures the soul of an artist.
Maybe it’s colorful neighborhoods awash in tropical colors and scents? Maybe it’s the sultry beaches and nightlife of Miami Beach? Maybe it’s the eclectic nature of the people who inhabit this stretch of land between the Florida Everglades and the mighty Atlantic Ocean?
Or, it could be a combination of the three?
Whatever the case, the Magic City and its environs have long captured the hearts of music artists in every genre, and for this AXS Top five list, let’s look at the top five songs that perfectly portrayed life in South Florida.

Mister D: This version is quite different than the Peter Allen tribute. Mainly the key changes and the addition of the Harlettes. It really does bring the song to life

Audio Info Updatd: Bette Midler – Tenterfield Saddler – Peter Allen Tribute – February 10 1993 at UCLA’s Royce – 1993
Update: I originally had this listed as the KMB version, but with a couple of people bringing things to my attention and listening to the tape, I’m convinced it was the Tribute and she got a do-over. I do have the Down Under tape somewhere because I’ve posted it before. I promise
Midler won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Miniseries or Television Film. Gibb was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Series, Miniseries or Television Film and the production was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film.
The film was nominated for 12 Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Made for Television Movie and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie for Midler, and won for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music Direction (Michael Rafter). Midler lost, in a big surprize, to Kirstie Alley in a Lifetime movie. Kirstie was good, but in no way did it approach the greatness of Midler’s performance.

Rock Music Menu: Philly’s iconic Electric Factory sold
By Michael Christopher Times Music Columnist
Sep 13, 2018
Wednesday marked the end of an era on the Philly music scene as the iconic Electric Factory announced it has been sold to The Bowery Presents, a concert promotion and venue management group that itself was acquired by global concert promoting behemoth AEG Live in 2016.
“What a ride it’s been,” said Larry Magid, head of Electric Factory and Electric Factory Concerts, in a statement. “We would like to thank the hundreds of thousands of fans who have attended the over 2,500 shows at Electric Factory from its original location at 22nd and Arch from 1968-1970 to its rebirth in 1995 at Seventh and Willow. A special thanks to all the employees, old and new, that have worked at the Factory over the years and to the great acts who have graced our stage, it’s been our privilege to work with you.”
This is a Tom Waits song Bette sang in Divine Madness that was left off the soundtrack. A gem of a song. She has always been his best interpreter. It just seems logical for her to record an album of his tunes.
