To start off, I really enjoy the beat that Bryce uses on this track. This song features an upbeat rhythm, and the lyrics compliment the beat. The entire song is supposed to deliver a nostalgic feel to the listener. Throughout the song, He incorporates popular themes from his childhood into the lyrics, and the music video features these themes throughout. For me, I think the nostalgic theme works well with this song. It provides a happy, carefree feeling to the listener. When I listen to this song, it personally brings back feeling and memories from the summer I was shown it. Because of this, I believe the nostalgic theme of the song is a good fit. Another reason this is good music is because of the lyrics. These lyrics break away from the typical stereotype that is expected from rap/hip-hop music. It seems that recently, few popular songs have lyrics with meaning. Most feature lyrics that will appeal to the masses to sell the most records. This is where Bryce Vine differentiates himself from these artists. His lyrics share stories and experiences from his life, and are very personalized for the listener. I recently went to one of his concerts he had in East Lansing, and when he performed Sour Patch Kids, the entire crowd was singing along, and was brought together. This experience exemplifies what Bryce Vine’s music is all about; connecting people and delivering quality
Ralph has chosen this song as he loves it. It's a song he'd love to be able to play on guitar. Ralph has stated he loves to play his guitar. However he gets frustrated when he try's to play it on his own. He often has his guitar out when he is relaxing in the unit and has stated he wants to write a song about his mum. Ralph actually sung part of a song he had thought up. The lyrics were very warm towards his mum. However this song was very short and maybe if Ralph gets better at the guitar with these lessons he will be able to put a whole song together about his mum. This would be a very positive event as
After spending many hours just listening to the songs played I discovered many different styles, melodies, harmonies, voices, and instruments. There were two songs in this album that were a trio that consisted of Ralph Stanley, Vince Gill, and Patty Loveless. Something that I think sounded very well was the harmony when they all sang the chorus of the song “A Lonesome Night”. The mix of Ralph Stanley’s high pitch unique voice, Vince Gills soft, smooth tone, and Patty Loveless honky tonk style blended very well. Some other instruments besides the banjo were guitar, fiddle, and the mandolin. To no surprise, all of these instruments are very prone to being involved in the bluegrass genre. From the many different voices that were included in this album, they each had at least a little piece of originality to them. You can definitely hear belting from some of the older people simply because of when they began singing and how they got used to singing loud without amplification
The song “Sound the Bugle” holds significant meaning to more than one situation that has come up in my life. Often times, I find myself at a low point where it seems like nothing with ever be the same again, where “I’ve got nothing left - just an empty heart”. Whether it be something petty such as a breakup, or something much more significant, like the death of my last grandmother, this song has taught me time and time again that there is always something to strive for even when things seem to be at their lowest point. The lyric “There’s a voice that calls, ‘Remember who you are’” is the most powerful lyric in the piece, in my opinion. The beginning exemplifies the state of hopelessness, then this line marks a transition that never ceases to
The former bears a classic Siena Root summer vibe, complete with cool bass lines, crunchy guitar leads and "pocket" drumming. Sam leaves enough room for the instrumental to take off, but has a nice presence throughout. He knows when to keep it calm or soar over the riffs. 'The Piper Won't Let You Stay' is a classic blues number that borrows some of Billy Gibbons' prowess, only to be enhanced by Hammond organ touches. I really dig the bass' tone, being deep and powerful when needed. Moreover, closing track, 'The Echoes Unfold' is a sunny rocker, switching from airy verses to epic choruses without being cheesy. The powerful vocals shine here and towards the end, one final jam ends this journey really beautiful. I wish they kept it going, much like 'In My Kitchen' closed Pioneers on a high
While from the outside Rachel Platten’s album “Wildfire” which was top five on the Billboard 200 charts. Might look like a common pop album, it is really Platten experimenting with different styles to find what she wants her sound to truly be. Throughout the album Platten seems to have been using the different genres and styles that she had been influenced by to create the different sounds that are present throughout. Throughout "Wildfire" Platten goes from a mellow pop sound in “Speechless,” to a country feel in “Lone Ranger,” to mix of pop and R&B in “You Don’t Know My Heart.” Platten uses her summer hit “Fight Song” which took the charts by storm to include the classic pop sound that her fans came to love about her. Platten uses her duet with Andy Grammar “Hey Hey Hallelujah” to create a song that has the Rap bridge that is common in many pop duets, Platten also uses the song to show that she is not only a smooth and mellow performer but that she can also create a rougher sound with her music.
One of the biggest influences for her was working with the producer/ musician Lenny Kaye of the Patti Smith Group. She has also worked as a recording artist and producer for Main Man whose roster included: David Boure, John Mellen Camp, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop . She had also produced and engineered Kronos Quartet and the SHE’s . She has composed music for KRON-TV’s “First Cut” series, Banana Republic and various films that have shown on BRAVO’s Independent Film Channel, French Television Cine Cinemas and other major festivals around the world
The part of this song that I chose fit the novel really well in my opinion. I really saw a connection between this song and Tom Roberson. ”Oh can't you see, Oh you misjudge me,I look like a farmer, But I'm a lover,
Summary: Louis Armstrong singing is remarkable. I can understand why he inspired so many people in the music industry. What I love about this album is his singing and his form in trumpet playing. Listening to Armstrong voice, as well as his lyrics, flushes away my sorrow when I listen to What a Wonderful World and Sittin’ in the Sun. These types of songs help me appreciate what I have. Armstrong duet with Bing Cosby is adorable. Gone Fishin’ song has humor, in addition, both man scats singing makes me smile. Armstrong and Cosby voices work well in numerous levels together. When you Smile (The World Smile with you) is one of my favorites. I can never get enough of this song. The way Armstrong plays his trumpet is truly tremendous the timing of his trumpet playing with his notes is on point.
I enjoyed the different musical rendition's of Fun Home. It was eye opening to see how depending on the various musical accompaniment t you can communicate a different emotion or message. The last song Telephone Wire communicated how much hurt and disappointment Alison was feeling. It wasn't your classic musical but I still felt more of a connection than the musicals
Wonder Woman chronicles the origin story of Diana, Princess of the Amazons, raised on the all-female sanctuary of Themyscira and trained by the immortal Amazons to be an undefeatable warrior. The sheltered island paradise, created by the Gods of Olympus, is disrupted by the arrival of army pilot Steve Trevor who literally crashes onto the island and enlightens Diana to the war raging outside their haven. Convinced that she is capable of ending the war Diana leaves home to assist the war effort. In seeking an end to the war to end all wars Diana gains a deeper understanding of humanity - and her true destiny.
Sarah Russell’s voice (somewhat reminiscent of Ellie Goulding) melds well with Adam Young’s. It’s just a fun love song. Alas, this is followed by probably my least favorite song on the album, “Unbelievable.” This should be a fun nostalgic song looking back to the childhood of their generation. It comes off as bit dull song which list of things without any clever lyrics to tie it together. A clever rap with good transitions could hav3e worked with what is, essentially, a long list. This just doesn’t work. It is “Unbelievable.” Now, admittedly, someone that had their shared experiences could find forgiveness in the list with their own nostalgic memories.
Don't watch any of her music if you want to have a sane mind !!!!! The crybaby cover art is very creative, and I loved that. The first song is called Crybaby the song is about people that are extremely sensitive and tend to be triggered quickly, then the song goes on too Dollhouse now this song is one of my favorites because it says don't judge a book by it's a cover. Cake, Sippy Cup, Training wheels, Carousel, Playdate, Teddy bear and Alphabet boy are all the worst songs in the album. Soap is an exquisite song which relates to people that can't keep their mouth shut, and they regret it the moment later or when you say something, and you regret it. Pity Party is one of my favorite songs of hers because it is the less creepy song and maybe the
Duluth Minnesota, May 24th 1941 Robert Allen Zimmerman (Bob Dylan) was born. 69 Years and over 45 albums later Bob Dylan has completely altered the face of popular music since his debut as a fresh faced folk singer in 1962. His early career forged him into an informal chronicler and then he later developed into an apparently reluctant figurehead of social unrest [Gray, 2006] and became a voice for a generation. His songs have been covered by many artists in a wide span of genres and he has remained a prominent and highly influential figure in the history of popular music over the past five decades. [Gates, David, 1997]
Thank you for purchasing My Comp I album. The following songs contain special meaning, so I was able to relate each of them to an essay I wrote during my Comp I class. Music has always been a passion of mine, so relating my essays to a few of my favorite songs seemed like the obvious choice. These various songs mesh together and form my Comp I album. So put the cd in, and let’s get listening!
