“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Job Jams”!

Hi, everyone!

We’re celebrating the 4th of July on Jammin’ with Jamie, though in a different way than you might expect.

Since we jammed to politically-adjacent pieces recently, we’re going tackle this jam session from a different angle. We’re going to turn our focus to a subject that gets a lot of political attention from every side of the proverbial aisle.

So spruce up your resume and brush up on your interview skills, because we’re going to be jammin’ to some…

You’re hired!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Halfway to Halloween (2017)”!

Due to technical issues, this Jammin’ with Jamie will happen Saturday, May 6!

Hi, everyone!

It’s time for another annual Jammin’ with Jamie tradition… that started last year.

But it was a ton of freaky fun, so we’re doing it again!

You’ve heard of Christmas in July, now get ready for an early celebration of another holiday!

Six months from now, we’ll be having a ghoulishly good time celebrating, so let’s start now with a haunted house of harmonies reminding us that we’re…

Clear away those cobwebs to reveal…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Romantic Troubles Tunes”!

Hi, everyone!

Whether you spent Valentine’s Day with your significant other, a friend or group of friends, or just yourself, I hope the day was a great one! Here on Jammin’ with Jamie, we’re going to keep celebrating!

In the second part of this two-part theme, we’re going to delve into the many bumps on the road of love. From the hoops people jump through to impress, to love triangles, to fights of epic proportions, we’re going to be working through a lot of issues this week in our own unique Jammin’ with Jamie way, with a track list of…

We need to talk…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Halloween Harmonies (Halloween 2016: Part 6)”!

Hi, everyone!

Thank you for sharing this magical broomstick ride through spooky seasonal songs with us! We have come to our final Halloween-themed jam session (for now), and this time, we’re going to take our theme as literally as possible!

When the bell tolls six on Saturday morning, it will be time for…

Trick or treat!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Monster Melodies (Halloween 2016: Part 5)”!

Hi, everyone!

This is my one-hundredth blog entry! Woo-hoo!

As I have made clear in so many previous posts here (and on other sites), I’m a big fan of horror (and horror comedy). I have a special place in my heart for monster movies. Monster movie fans often dub ourselves, “Monster Kids.”

This week on Jammin’ with Jamie, we’re unleashing our inner Monster Kids––– or maybe, for some of you Jammers, discovering them––– with one of my personal favorite of our Halloween jam session themes…

“Listen to them… the songs of the night…”

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Dungeon Dance Ditties (Halloween 2016: Part 4)”!

Hi, everyone!

I always encourage my fellow Jammers to sing and dance along with me during our jam sessions. This week, the focus will be on the latter.

The amount of spooky songs that are somehow related to dancing is, well, shocking… pun intended!

So let’s give our muscles a jolt as we jam to…

A 5, 6, 7, 8…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Terror-ific TV Tunes (Halloween 2016: Part 3)”!

Hi, everyone!

How do you get in the spirit of the spooky season? Of course, there are Halloween harmonies you can sing and dance along to, but there are also plenty of Halloween movies, TV shows, and TV specials that will get you excited for the haunted holiday!

So turn out the lights, grab some popcorn (or candy corn), and snuggle up with a blanket or two, and jam with us to a macabre mix of…

Let’s tune in!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Mad Science Songs (Halloween 2016: Part 2)”!

Hi, everyone!

As promised, we’re still jammin’ to Halloween songs, and as also promised, we have a new Halloween-related theme this week!

I locked myself away in my laboratory to experiment and come up with a theme, when suddenly, “EUREKA!”

Pull the switch!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Supernatural Songs (Halloween 2016: Part 1)”!

Hi, everyone!

… It’s time.

It doesn’t seem like that long ago that we helped ourselves to a heap of haunting hors d’oeuvres to celebrate being halfway to Halloween!

At this time last year, I wasn’t doing Jammin’ with Jamie, and I didn’t anticipate just how much I’d miss sharing some of my favorite music––– from my lifelong Halloween hallmark harmonies to new diabolically delightful ditties I discovered––– with you amazing Jammers!

When I first started Jammin’ with Jamie in October 2011, I dove right into the dungeon of devilishly dance-able ditties, and have continued that grand tradition ever since!

Now that I’m back on the airwaves (and online), I’m not wasting any time in going back to my roots… even if I have to hike through a haunted forest to find those roots!

So crack open your favorite spell book, refresh yourself with your favorite potion from your cauldron, and invite the spirits in your house to sing and dance along with us to…

Now say the magic words!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Athletic Anthems”!

Hi, everyone!

A few weeks ago, the Olympics reached the finish line. Watching athletes excel in the sports they’ve trained relentlessly in for years inspires many of us to work hard “go for the gold” in our own lives… but some great music helps when the going gets tough!

You know what they say: “When the going gets tough, the tough get jammin’!”

… No? That’s not what they say? Well, they should, because one of the best ways to get going when the going gets tough is to get a tune going in your head!

So let Jammin’ with Jamie be the background music to your motivational training montage, as we jam to some…

Get pumped!
