Top 11 Glam Rock Songs
11. “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” by Elton John “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” was written and recorded in 1973 during Elton John’s glam phase and became one of his biggest hits. Lyricist Bernie Taupin told Rolling Stone, “Over the years you tend to invent your own myths about songs because you feel it’s necessary to come up with a reason why you wrote a certain song. It’s been said on so many occasions that ‘Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting’ relates to my English past.
Songs About Immigrants and Refugees
In another piece on songs about roots, I concluded with a number that disparaged the very concept of roots, a song about following your dreams and searching for freedom. "People have the ability to lay down their own roots, wherever and whenever they want," I noted. "Maybe part of growing up is not accepting the roots you came with but setting down your own roots in a place and with people of your own choosing."
The Tragic Story Behind George Harrison's 'Got My Mind Set on You'
After leaving the Beatles, George Harrison had an impressive solo career before his untimely death in 2001 at age 58. Harrison notched five Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 that included “My Sweet Lord,” “What Is Life,” “All Those Years Ago” and “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth).” Of the five, only one was not original to Harrison: “Got My Mind Set on You.” James Ray released the tune in 1962 with high hopes; it followed his debut hit the previous year, “If You Gotta Make a Fool of Somebody.” But Ray would not live long enough to know any further success.
'All Too Well (10 minute version) Analysed
With the release of the 10 minute version of All Too Well, us Swifties have been gifted new lyrics to pick apart, and pick apart we shall. In case you are unfamiliar, it details the breakdown of her relationship with actor Jake Gyllenhaal in an emotional outpour more potent than any other breakup song- and I would argue this song, like many of her others, are much more than your bog-standard breakup song. Miss Swift has an uncanny ability for storytelling, giving a full insight into both her emotions, and the surrounding context.

25 Greatest Songs of Dolly Parton

The Poetic Genius of Nigel Blackwell
I think I was first exposed to the genius of Nigel Blackwell when I heard "All I Want For Christmas is a Dukla Prague Away Kit" by his band Half Man Half Biscuit . Nigel’s titles often skewed more famous song titles but are filled with the observations of minutiae in the mundanities of everyday British life from the 1980’s to today.
Hit me where it Hurts
“They say dreaming is free, but I wouldn’t care what it cost me.” - 26, Paramore Far too many times in my life I have made the easy, safe choice. I’ve been trying recently to chase after what I want with both hands. So far, I think I’ve only managed halfway. Sometimes I wonder why so many well-off people seem so miserable and I’m beginning to believe it is because we have too much to lose to put everything we have into something we don’t.
The Therapist- Tristen Davies
So Tristen Davis has recently released a music video for his song “The Therapist”. In little over 8 months he’s racked up 100k plays on youtube. This is his biggest played song on youtube so far. That means it’s only going to go up from here. I asked him how it felt when he realized his video had reached 100k and he said “ It feels great! unexpected but grateful.” I just know it’s such a amazing feeling to see that one of your songs you put your heart and soul into and it picks up the traction that it deserves. He also stated that he wrote it in his dorm room and only took him 20 minutes to write it up, didn’t change a word to it. I asked him what inspired the visuals behind the video and he said “ King Von had just died like maybe a week before so i wanted to write up a conversational video where I could pour out my emotions , people just don’t do that anymore. Very Damien by DMX , My darling by Eminem inspired. Same as the visuals.” I love to see music artist step outside their box and make a super emotional and deep song that really means something to them and a song they’ll hold close to them. Not all the time do we get the emotional side from some of these artist. I also asked him if this was his favorite or at least one of his favorites. He said “It’s definitely top 3. The last time I listened to it fully, I cried, haven’t got back since but definitely one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever wrote.” I’d have to agree with him this is one the most beautiful songs I’ve heard by him. I really appreciated the craft in this song the deep meaning behind the it. He made this song very relatable, so to me it connects to the listener. Anyone going through these same problems will find a comfort listening to this song. This personal has to be one of my favorite songs by him as of the moment. He really put everything into this song and it’s crazy to think he only wrote it in 20 minutes. It really shows that some of the best songs are the unexpected ones. I’m glad to see it reaching to 100k plus on youtube and hope it keeps going up from there. He truly deserves it with all the work he’s been putting into his music. He stated “ I just want people to relate through my music. People have other emotions other than sex, money, murder, and hatred, people just want to vent sometimes. That’s all.” I love how he’s giving a outlet not on to his fans but to anyone that could stumble upon him. Anyone that’s going through could stumble upon this song and help their out look on life. I feel that Tristen Davies is one of the most slept on upcoming music artist. He puts so much effort into his music and really tries to step outside the box and connect with anyone with his music. Rather your going through it or just want to vibe he’s got the songs for you. He’s going on to do better things. I hope this video/song reaches more people and gets to the millions this could really help a lot of people. All the comments on the video are so happy to have found this track. So be sure to check out his track “The Therapist” on youtube. I really feel this song will help a bunch of people and the things their going through. https://youtu.be/LJYxyUrRzOA
"I'll probably get the whole thing wrong..."
Okay, why is next to no one talking about the songs cut from the Percy Jackson Musical? I've had the song "Try" on repeat for hours and with lines like "I may fail but it doesn't mean that I won't try," who wouldn't?!
