WELCOMEE! Today is the first ever post in the series of ‘Musical Thursdays’ (I got late, this week). I’ll be posting every Thursdays (hopefully :P) on different moods/genres of songs, with about at least 10-15 songs that I find awesome. Since this is the first session I just posted, with my respective power as the author, on the topic of my choice (BWAGHAHHA, SUCK IT! :D), but at the end I’d leave a choice of 3 to choose from and the ones who vote for the most, gets selected and posted the next Thursday. So please give feedback, like, share, comment and see if your choice gets selected!
btw: watch the videos at your own discretion. Some may contain mature content. If hesitant then just youtube the lyric video version for them.
1) Hall and Oates – You Make My Dreams
The numbering isn’t in any order of preference, it’s just to let you guys know (as well as, myself) how many songs I posted here so I don’t overdo them 😛 So I’d start by this song by Hall and Oates, though a very old song, which was made famous thanks to the (read: Bestest) romance-comedy movie called~~~~ 500 Days Of Summer! I recommend both this song, and the movie.
Since another writer already told us about Bieber in her ‘Love’ post, I do not think I need to give a proper introduction. Just to be clear though, I do not have anything against Canadians.
I first heard about “Bieber” in 2010. In that particular year, I had lost my interest in American Idol and did not keep up with it. Hence, when I listened to people talking about this new pop sensation, I assumed it was another American Idol contestant who had won the hearts of young females around the globe, much like Kris Allen and Adam Lambert had done previously.
Apparently, I was wrong. Dead wrong. Bieber was much worse.
I understood how bad he was after listening to his music of course. For those of you who do not know, I prefer to do my math homework with some good music in the background. That helps me think better and I always get all my answers correct that way. However, I knew something was wrong the moment I put in Bieber’s entire first album onto my iPod and started listening while completing my homework. Guess what? All my answers turned out to be wrong. That is Omen no. 1.
Okay fine, maybe that was a co-incidence. But is the fact that my day goes horrible when I listen to a Bieber song on the radio in the morning, a co-incidence too? I think not.
Lets move aside from the supposed idea that he is an evil devil. Lets take a look at his music, singing style and general attitude. I hope, that after reading this, you will understand why I utterly despise – I mean, ‘dislike’ – Bieber. Continue Reading
I don’t need to introduce him, do I? You probably know him as ‘The kid with the hair who sang “Baby”‘. But for those of you who don’t know him, Justin Bieber is Canadian singer who was discovered on YouTube by Scooter Braun, who is currently his manager. He became well-known because of his first single “One Time” from his debut album My World, and it wasn’t long after his career blew up after the release of another single, “Baby”. Since then, he’s known as one of the biggest celebrities and has been nominated (and won) for several awards.
I started liking him back in 2009 when I saw him on my tv screen in the grey hoodie singing “Aye, aye, aye”, and i’ve been supporting him since.
One comes across numerous people claiming to be ‘music lovers’ or ‘hardcore music fans’. But once you ask them which songs they listen to, their reply is always (or 90% of the time) that they like Pitbull, Katy Perry and a bunch of other people who usually make it to the charts. But… are they actually ‘good’?
Personally, I think Pitbull is crap. Similarly, Ms. Perry, Taio Cruz, Enrique Iglesias and all the other drunk singers are worthless. True music lovers know that the good music doesn’t always make it to the charts, with a few exceptions of course (e.g: Rolling in the Deep – Adele).
So, let me give you a lesson a music.
