For The Love of Music: Daily Prompt
I love listening to music. All kinds of music for the most part.
I have shared some of my favorite songs on my blog in the past. Music from Adele , Taylor Swift , Sam Smith , and JohnnySwim.
I have always loved music. Many say it is theraputic, I certainly agree. My musical tastes vairies from Rap to Broadway. I’m not much of a hard rock or country fan but I listen to it every once in a while.
My iPod is chock full of songs from the 80s with Micheal Jackson, to the new years with Sam Smith. My Pandora is full of different music also. Disney to Desiigner. It’s all up there.
Music is a universal language. With the recent death of Prince, whose music career spans decades, artists who are no longer alive can be appreciated and loved simply because their music is still here. There have also been reports that Prince has potentialy hundreds of songs that haven’t even been released yet.
I like my vast musical tastes. I can appreciate those who like certain music as well. I know some people who only listen to gospel or only listen to Hip Hop and I respect that. Music is so universial that not everyone has to listen to the same thing.
Beyonce just had and album come out and so did Drake. I haven’t listened to them yet but I most likely will eventually.
After 4 years, she is back to rule the charts with a new single and an ablum release date of November 25, 2015. Just 1 day before Thanksgiving. Her name has been a trending topic on Twitter and Facebook as well as her single already hitting the top charts. The single, titled Hello, is the 1st track off Adele’s long awaited new album, 25. So in case you haven’t heard it. I’ve provided the link at the top. Adele fans lets get ready for a great year. Pre-order 25 on iTunes, Amazon, and all other music services. The Boss is back!!
So if anyone watched the Billboard Music Awards this past Sunday, I am sure they saw Taylor’s Swift’s starstudded video for her song Bad Blood. if not, it is linked to this post. I can not stop playing this song. I love it. I’d say this video premire was the best part of the ENTIRE awards show. I like watching awards shows but for some reason this year’s Billboard Music Awards did not do it for me. There were some parts I liked, like the tribute to Breakfast Clubs, Nick Jonas’s performance, and Taylor Swifts numerous awards speeches, lol, but overall the show sucked. Oh and the hosts, umph they have to choose better hosts next year. But anyhow, I am in love with this song and am proud of Taylor for FINALLY becoming a true pop artist.
I AM IN LOVE WITH SAM SMITH!!!! I found him on iTunes about a month ago and I have been in love with him ever since. He is an artist from London, and he has been featured on songs with Naughty Boy (La La La) and Disclosure (Latch). His debut album, ‘In The Lonely Hour’, comes to the US on June 17, (It came out in the UK on May 26). The first song I heard from him was Stay With Me. The song features Smith’s soulful vocals and paints a story of a love sick man who can’t get over his one night stand. After hearing the song, I immediately bought it from iTunes. It’s on my iPod and I can’t wait to get the rest of the album. I have had the pleasure of hearing some tracks from the album on his YouTube channel and I fall in love every time I hear it. From what I’ve heard, this album is a must for anyone who is a fan of soulful, love scorned ballads. I’ve included a few of the tracks that I have fallen in love with (In order of my love of course).
1. Lay Me Down
3. Leave Your Lover
4. Stay With Me
5. Money On My Mind
6.Not In That Way
7. I’ve Told You Now
The Gifted by Wale
Release Date: June 25,2013
The Gifted is Wale’s third long-player album. The songs show a more melow part of the rapper. Each song explores his feelings on relationships and growing fame. Bad, featuring Tierra Thomas, suggest that love is sought after in the wrong way. While Vanity plays on the materialized culture of the rap business. With the exception of Clappers and Rotation, the album has a cool vibe to it. It’s an album that can be played in the car or at the club. His content and lyric delivery are great and I give it an A.
Best Track(s): Bricks(feat. Yo Gotti and Lyfe Jennings) LoveHate Thing(feat. Sam Drew).
