This post is officially the first post dedicated to a hip-hop/rap song. I don’t usually listen to this genre of music, but I really should broaden my horizons if I am going to be producing a blog about music commentary. Kendrick Lamar’s song Swimming Pools (Drank) has a killer beat which will captivate the ears immediately, but what ultimately hooks you is the intro lyrics, which a repetitive and catchy. The rest of the song however, isn’t as strong as this one part, but it does ok. This song is ultimately about getting extremely drunk to the point of not being coherent. This song could also be viewed as a quail to alcoholism It seems like a confession of an alcoholic. ” Pull up, head shot, sit down, stand up, pass out, wake up, faded, faded” The hole time uttering “drank” in between each phrase. All in all, I really do like this song and I hope that you like it too. This might even encourage me to listen to more hip-hop/rap or at least some more Kendrick Lamar.
So, In the spirit of Christmas, I will be blogging about Christmas/Holiday songs that I find particularly pleasing to the ear. First off to start the Holiday season is Deck the Rooftop by the Glee Cast. This song is a mash up of two very popular holiday songs: Up on the Rooftop and Deck the Halls. This is one of my favourite Christmas songs. Its fun, peppy, and great for dancing to at a Holiday/Christmas party. Anyways, add this song to your holiday playlist and enjoy…because I defiently know that I will be enjoying this song on mine :).
Everybody needs a little Bruno Mars in their lives. This is Mars new song, Locked out of Heaven. Although I am not in love with it to the same extend I was attracted to Just The Way You Are and most of the other tracks on his album Doo-Wops and Hooligans I must say that this is a good follow up effort to an amazing and Grammy award winning previous album. Hopefully unorthodox jukebox (his new album) can captivate me in the same way. Basically, I’m just trying to say that this is a good song and I hope that you enjoy it.
Maroon 5 + Adam Levine = Perfection. This equation is the reason for this groups success. Now, we all remember Songs about Jane, the album that launched their career But is it the quality of the songs on that album or the beauty of Adam Levine’s voice that has kept us captivated for the past 3 or 4 other albums? Think about it, and while you do that, listen to one of my favourite Maroon 5 songs from their album, Hands All Over.
