"Talk Fast" This is an interesting song, but I feel it fits well with the feel of the album. A lot of the songs on the album are about breakups and lost love; this is a song about a fling. It talks about the ‘last call'. This is an obvious reference to the last drink call in a bar. The phrase ‘burn, crash, romance' and ‘won't last, I'm okay with that' are all very clear references to the fact that they are happy with the idea of the fling and the whole second verse seems to be the thoughts running through their head as they are trying to pick up a girl. Considering what the rest of the album talks about, I think that this song is a great contrast. As well as that, it has a very catchy melody and lyrics that make this song very hard to forget in a hurry.
Between the Lines - Part 1
I happened upon this song by accident one day when "YouTube surfing" and I was instantly drawn in by the words and beat that was beautifully intertwined. At times that I have listened to it over and over again, I was stuck between two possibilities. Could this be about a rough breakup, or losing a loved one to the cold clutches of death? However, the more I have thought into it, it could easily be both.
The Carters - 'Everything Is Love' Review
Their love knows no boundaries; the passion for their art, no limitations. Together, The Carters—Jay Z and Beyonce—can’t be stopped. They’ve come a long way from “Crazy in Love” and “Bonnie and Clyde.” They even overcame infidelity and mistrust while being in the public eye. As they’ve grown, their music has progressed with them; Lemonade and 4:44 are vulnerable and introspective bodies of work.
As the sun began to set on Onondaga Lake in Syracuse, New York at the St Joseph Health Amphitheater, Imagine Dragons lit up the stage. The four-man band from Las Vegas, Nevada definitely know how to engage with their audience and put on one hell of a show. The band has been a powerhouse of mainstream hits since 2012 with their first successful single, “It’s Time” off of their Night Vision album. However, it was the song “Radioactive” from this same album that solidified them as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. They opened the show with “Radioactive”, the song which, incidentally, holds the record for spending the longest time on the Billboards Top 100, 87 weeks.

Why I Will Not Miss xxxTentacion
Three short hours ago, I was sitting in my humble abode, when my lovely girlfriend sends me a simple text. "xxxTentacion is dead. He was shot."
The last time Nas came through with a solo venture, he was declaring that Life Is Good. On his 2012 release, he reconciled with a nasty divorce, fatherhood, and poured “Cherry Wine” with the legendary Amy Winehouse. Just like the wine in his cup, this was a Nas that had aged and outgrown the topics of his youth.
There are songs that get a person into their feelings. Feelings of sadness, hopefulness, happiness, and the feeling to be loved. HONNE’s “Warm On A Cold Night” is a song that displays the affection between a man and a woman. The lyrics as well as the music production shows love in a different light.
What Is Metal Music?
Well, "loud," "fast," "a load of screaming & shouting," "the devil's music," and simply "noise" are some of the most common answers you will get when you ask the public what they think metal music is.This, of course, is all just personal opinion and far from the truth. Any real metal fan will go into detail and show their passion for the genre. Before we go any further, I must put the story straight on fashion. I see so many people (usually teens and early twenty-somethings), wearing band apparel with no clue on who the band are, let alone be fans. Metal is not fashionable, it is all about the music.
The year was 1950. A man by the name of Sam Phillips had a dream about recording hits that would blow music lovers out of the water. He loved playing music, but even more so he had the desire to record them. So after saving up as much money as he could, he bought a small little building on the corner of Marshall and Union Avenue. Originally it was called Memphis Recording Service, but in the year 1952 it became Sun Studio. He took his time making the small building his. He hung every piece of tile in the building, from the walls to the ceiling. He converted the old car garage into his very own Recording Studio. Sam Phillips worked hard, but not as hard as his secretary Marion Keisker. She was the first person any of the walk-in artist saw. Her smile and pretty eyes were always welcoming
