Every day of the week, I am always finding and enjoying new songs. Whether they are songs that are unknown or songs that have been constantly played in the media, there’s always something to enjoy in the song department!
Mental health: a topic that isn’t spoken about enough. The coronavirus pandemic: something is so widely spoken about. It is there when you go to sleep. It is there when you close your eyes. It is there when you wake up. What do you get when you combine mental health and a pandemic ripped to a million pieces by the media? A great big crushing war with yourself.
No doubt Eminem is considered as one of the greatest rappers of all time but do you know how he got famous? Well by the end of this post, you will know about it.
Liberace made his first trip to Europe in 1955. He was in Paris at the behest of Jack Warner, to promote his upcoming film, called "Sincerely Yours." But he was an unknown in France. So Warner asked Line Renaud to introduce Liberace to the press.
So, what's it going to be? A rap club, or a rock club? Well, obviously, it all depends on how you feel at the time. Oh, and don't worry about your friends Jack, Johnny, James, Jose and the rest of the gang, they've already R.S.V.P’d for both clubs, so you’re good. If you care less about rhythm and more about punching the air and dancing around like a voodoo witch doctor hopped up on coke, then a rock club is for you. If you’re more of a rhythm person, but you want to conserve your energy for the fight that will inevitably break out less than five feet away from you, then your best bet would be a rap club.
Sweet 7 - Sugababes The album deserved to be panned for terrible lyrics, auto-tune-happy-overproduction and offering no originality. It’s true that the album lacks identity and is out of place in Sugababes’ discography. What wasn’t okay was how the girls in the group Were treated. I am still fond of the album, even though I know it’s not their best work. About a Girl, No More You and Little Miss Perfect were nice tracks. I don’t like Get Sexy or Wear My Kiss anymore. It used to be a fun album to listen to, but as my taste in music has changed I don’t care about it as much as I used to. I still kinda like it though.
We all need something to laugh about right now and Geico's recent insurance commercial featuring the hip hop duo Tag Team is pretty hillarious. The Geico announcer asks a woman named Tasha if she is waiting on Tag Team to invite her to take advantage of Geico's special rates. The duo shows up in her kitchen with ice cream scoops in their hands. They begin singing"Scoop there it is", and dancing to the tune of their 1993 hit single "Whoomp! (There It Is)". For a moment, Tasha is stunned, then she begins dancing along as well. Her daughter enters the kitchen with a young man who joins in on the fun and begins dancing too. The daughter walks out of the room with a look of embarassment on her face.
Alright. 10 minutes away from turning 21. Of course, I didn’t think I’d spend this birthday at home. The plan was: 1. Beg my mom to let my friends and I go to Vegas
July, Corona does have a symptom for the uninfected, and that must be this summery slumber. These days, the sunlight burns moth holes through the curtains, making the 93 million mile trek just to wake me, a mummy wrapped in linens. Dog days were carved into our biological clock at an early age. Usually a favorite of school kids for their hibernation, this semester is loved for its sprinklers, ice pops, and 3 AM crickets picnicking out on the lawn. Overall, it’s somntastic, but the harvest time slug doesn’t seem to fit this summer well, considering at least what it’s been harvesting.
Biography Ofra Haza was an Israeli-Yemenite singer, actress, songwriter and award- winning recording artist. She was born on November 19th 1957 in the impoverished Tel Aviv neighbourhood of Shechunat Hatikvah to a destitute family of nine children (six sisters and two brothers). Her parents Yefet and Shoshana Haza were Mizrahi Jewish immigrants from Yemen.
Walking Man, James Taylor's 5th album, came at a difficult juncture in his career. His previous album, One Man Dog, was generally successful and did have its critical supporters, with many still seeing "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" as an enduring success. Some of the short songs around it seemed somewhat unfinished, however, and while the album did reward repeated listening many never got that far. Sales did not match the gigantic numbers reached by the previous two Taylor albums (Sweet Baby James and Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon) and some spoke as though Taylor's musical dominance was all in the past tense.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Whole Lotta Red marks a new era for Playboi Carti, and it seems to be a lot more than just an album. He’s become somewhat unrecognizable from the artist he was when he released his first, self-titled record, “Playboi Carti”, dawning a more punk look, which he’s said is inspired by the cult classic movie “The Lost Boys”. Him dawning this new look for Whole Lotta Red makes the album feel a lot more put together, like everything is deliberate. It even goes as far as the way he types out his tweets.
