Some think it's borderline tired now, but Adam still likes some mellow house music. As the song says, "Not everybody understands house music. It's a spiritual thing. A body thing. A soul thing." It's been around since disco, and it started in black gay clubs in Chicago. Find out more for yourself below.

Hear it here for yourself. Extended RealAudio samples of garage, disco, classic, and modern house music including brief reviews of every song. This site is extremely up-to-date and contains some of the latest in house music. Not much deep written information, but a wealth of aural stimulation.

Chicago House Music Web Site [access date: 2003, Jan. 18]

This site is not graphically thrilling, but has a wealth of information and RealAudio files. The audio files include over 90 minutes of individual songs and ten original Chicago radio mixes from the early years. Written information is really interesting and includes the liner notes from this "History of House" CD Adam keeps mentioning. Sorry, you're going to have to ignore that stupid Geocities pop-up banner.
