We all have that one artist that sticks with us as we grow older. For me, that artist is KISS (I know... look at me now). The neat thing about having them be my childhood artist is that, I look at the way they've impacted my taste on music, and how listening to them got me into so much other music early on. Listening to what my dad listened to really helped me expand my own musical horizons. Now, not everyone gets the chance to listen to as much music as I did growing up. However, it's never too late to start listening to music you've never even heard before. Here are three reasons you should definitely go on Spotify, and just find something to listen to.
Texas is known to do everything bigger and better. They have big hair, big servings of food, and big personalities. Some big music artists have come out of the state of Texas. A Texas solar powered stadium easily fills up when these artists come to town. These are the top 5 artists to come from the state of Texas.
It is all around us. Sometimes it is in our faces and other times in is buried in the background. It gets us moving and keeps us entertained. Music is a bigger part of our lives than we may realize. That is why we are sharing with you today this list of the ways in which music enriches us.
Music connects on a far deeper level than people are ready to admit with obstacles such as languages and linguistic abilities pushed to the back burner when chords and rhythms hold sway via emotions expressed in different forms.
Yellowcard has been one of my favorite bands and has meant a lot to me since I started listening to them a lot more about eight years ago. Their songs have so much meaning and are very relatable for many different situations. Listening to their music has helped me through so many different situations and has always made me feel better about things in life. I am going to list my ten favorite songs by Yellowcard and explain why I love these songs so much.
It's not easy being a Beatles fan. Ever since I dug into their works when I was 15 in 2013 I realized that even though they were the most successful rock band in history, they just aren't as beloved as they used to be. A lot of time has passed since their final album "Let It Be" was released in 1970. Now it seems that old folk have their own music (Eagles, Boston, Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Elton John etc) and young folk have their own music (Ariana Grande, Jlo, Halsey, Migos, EDM, The Harlem Shake,etc) and I noticed that no one really likes going out of their comfort zone. No one wants to meet in the middle anymore. The radio has played a huge part in carving out niches for "oldies stations" which is composed of mostly blues rock from the 70s and synth pop from the 80s and is desperately trying to cling onto the audience over 40 that can't be bothered to download the Spotify App. And since EDM, trap and obnoxious teen idols have infested top 40 radio AND the internet it's causing rock and roll, alternative and any guitar oriented music to go unnoticed without any record sales. I've even noticed this down to a personal level. All my life I've always tried playing a few Beatles songs in playlists while driving, at a get together or just chilling at someone's home and it's always met with some resistance, my friends and family have always said that the Beatles music is too old fashioned and corny for them to listen to on a regular basis. A lot of the early soda fountain pop rock stuff really turns people away from the creative legacy of the fab four. People are particularly distraught by the psychedelic years of 1966 to 1967, the experimental years. Many people, young and old think that listening to "Lucy In The Sky With Diamond" or "Blue Jay Way" is like listening to nails on a chalk board. And as someone who loves music it breaks my heart that these songs will one day be forgotten by the youth who will only want to listen to dubstep or k-pop for eternity.
As my sister has already started mentioning Christmas I've began to realise that the decade has slowly began to draw to a close and so it's time to discuss the most empowering songs for women across the whole decade. It was too hard to just choose ten songs so this will be a longer list than I'm used to. All of the songs on this list will be perfect for your girl power Spotify playlist. I will link my own girl power playlist that includes all these songs and more at the bottom of the article so feel free to listen.
This is the second part to my favorite songs for each letter of the alphabet.
Some people love to ask the icebreaker question. "What is your favorite song?" and if you're like me, someone who listens to an abundance of music, you don't have one. You have several, especially nowadays when there are so many streaming services and ways to access new music. I've been in quite a writer's block for a little bit of time, and this idea came to my mind and I got extremely excited. I know lists are sort of cop outs when it comes to articles, but I love them, especially ones like these where there are so many choices. I hope this list will inspire you to make your own because I would love to look at someone else's. This is the first 13, and I will be doing the second tomorrow.
In order to survive this much-longer-than-18-months hiatus, I find myself replaying every song One Direction has ever recorded about twelve times a day. Now, before you say it, it’s not a problem, it’s a choice. A choice that I continue to make against my better judgment every single day. Below is a list of my absolute favorite songs recorded by my five favorite idiots. They are in no particular order because these songs are like my children, and it just wouldn’t be right to rank them in such a way.
Let's talk about one of my favorite artists of this decade: Halsey.
