Heh, I wonder what The Glorious Sons would say if they saw my eerie spin on their album cover "Young Beauties and Fools". A lone woman riding a one-eyed old spook in the twilight - his empty eye socket visible to the observant viewer. Making this little twist made me feel like I was back in high school art class, completing an expression piece.
How culturally relevant is our popular music? Is it truly a diary of our present, a crystal ball into our future and a commentary on our past? Is some music popular simply because it is an earworm that infects us without our permission? Or does the music on the charts reveal anything about our society? What was the creative incubator behind these hits?
Hip-Hop has become a dominant genre where it also opens the door for collaborations. For years, fans have been given great collaborations between two big artists at the time and loved it. The greatest collaborations have given us classic songs or albums that have remembered for a long time and I feel these are the best ones or ones to come.
Let’s go back about 7 years, when I was really struggling.
Years ago, after I got past the very beginning stage of learning how to produce music, I started to ignore a lot of “basic” advice I would hear when I was looking for ways to get better. I would think something along the lines of, “I already know that, I’m sick of hearing this shit, give me something more advanced”.
2019… The end of an entire decade… Wow, time really does fly! I will, of course, be making a music of the decade playlist, but until then, here we go! These are going to be my top 5 songs I discovered this year, and my top 5 artists of the year. The songs are not in any specific order. The artist list is based on my Spotify stats!.
It's hard to believe it's almost the end of the decade. We are fast approaching 2020.
As we begin a new decade, Winners Only looks back at the songs that moved us the most. This may not be the list that the industry wants you agree with but we make our own rules! Here's the top 100 songs that we officially call the Best Records of the Decade.
Hey everyone! Today I have a super exciting topic, and I'm really excited for you to read this. Today we're talking about guitarists, but we aren't talking about guitarists you already know. Well...you might know these players, but I want this post to be about players who have made a HUGE impact on the guitar scene in the last couple of years, players who are from where I am currently living in, and players who are changing the game with their innovative style and unique approach to creating music on the guitar. Let's get it.
Disclaimer: this list is for entertainment purposes only. With this list I do not intend to demean or bash on any of the members. This is just my opinion and an opinion is not a fact. Depending on the country or the culture we grew up with beauty is seen differently. All the members add their own talent and charisma to make the group a whole. I must also clarify that Sihyeon is my bias and E:U is my bias wrecker. This list is actually one of the shortest list I have ever had to make.
As we continued from the last story of this, we go further to see who else ran the music industry in the last five years of the decade.
