New Old Music

This song I found earlier this year from a countdown list for 2012... Ah, the talent you find when the year begins! But it's a great heads up to keep an eye on this artist. Don't know where she exactly came from, but she has a fantastics sound. Plus, she does it all with a smile :"D

Azelia Banks - 1991

Love how the introduction begins en Fran├žais, and then the dirty bits come in. Honestly, I do have a hard time following what she says but aren't all raps like that? They catch you in with the beat, so you listen to it until you are able to actually understand the words that come flying out of her mouth. Her voice is different from other female rappers; it's a little raspy, yet mixed with a soothing, pleasant ring to it. From what I can get at the song, I think it's about herself and the person she is since day one (well, it's pretty obvious with the title being her birth year). On the 31st, she will be 22. Happy Birthday to her, can't wait to see what other gifts she can bring out in the music scene ^^

New Old Music

I will admit: I am slow. Especially when it comes to following television series. I can go weeks without dying to know what happened since the last episode I watched. Don't know why, maybe turning on the television takes so much effort, and that seems hard. Let me explain the rest after introducing the song:

Little Big Town - Pontoon

So last month, I finally found out who won The X Factor, and I must say that it did go to the best singer in the competition. Each contestant got to sing a duet with a famous act, and this was the result. Although I thought it was a fun song, it didn't really catch my attention. That was then until I heard it again earlier this evening, and that funky introduction caught me off guard. Got to blame family, because you never know what kind of music they'll re-introduce you to. But he does make a good point: Country music is fun! And this is a summer hit (even though it's from last year). But who don't want to be motor boatin'? I for one, would love to. And there is no denying such relaxing voices this group has ^_^

New Old Music

To celebrate Mother's Day, I decided this week's selection will be based around one of my mother's favourite artists. She loved to dance back in the day, and would always go out when she had the chance. Nowadays, she still loves to dance... But in a different way. So, let's get to the song.


Donna Summer - Last Dance

This is Disco! Compare it with today's music that you wouldn't want to share with your parents - this is pretty much it, but with more flare! Let's be honest, you can actually sing along with these songs (mainly because of the lyrics) and you also wanted to challenge yourself to hit those high, long notes. It starts off slow, and it introduces all of the kicks: flutes, chimes, saxophones, it's the works! And that is just the beginning - wait until the violins come in. Oh mother, you have excellent taste in music. Thank you for showing me the music of your time, it's delicious :"d

Concert Review: The Lonely Hearts Club Tour

So, I spent money on yet another tour... But this one was generally cheaper compared to other concerts that I have been to, if I say so myself. To be honest, I think the venue should have been bigger.

On May 3, 2013, my friend and I joined Marina & The Diamonds in The Lonely Hearts Club. Let's look into it, shall we?

Welcome to Electra Heart

New Old Music

Another song where you like listening to, but never get around to actually remember what the title is... Thankfully 90s music is always good, and never gets old. Too bad the music scene can't be more like what it use to be in the past ._.

Goo Goo Dolls - Slide

When I think of the Goo Goo Dolls, I instantly think of "Iris," one of their most successful songs. This is another instant hit from them. There is a deep meaning behind the lyrics, mostly about love, and the consequences when the possibility of anything occurs. Will you stay calm and think it over, or go by impulse and run away from your worries? Unfortunately, after the 90s, I never really paid much attention to where the band has gone. But on a recent search of the web, they are still making music. Hopefully, it's just as good as this one.
