New challenge – New artists

Yes, you read right. As a follow-up on a suggestion from one of my readers, I will find 5 new artists and blog about them. Have already looked through lot of “new” bands and artists, and I think I will manage to pick out 5 of them to blog about. The “new” part is that they are new to me (and new to this blog), and I guess some readers will think that I’ve missed out on something, since I’ve only just discovered the bands before, but at least I’ve checked them out now!
The 5 “new” artists I will blog about are the following:

  • Halestorm
  • 12 Stones
  • Red
  • Epica
  • Dream Theater

… in that order, I think. I will see what kind of inspiration that comes to mind when I listen to their songs… At least I think I have decided which songs to write about for these artists, and that’s pretty good, considering I have trouble with deciding pretty much anything.
I hope you will enjoy this, because I think I will! Happy reading!

Well, just wanted to post something today too, so that I proudly can say I’ve managed to blog the entire week!
I thought I could post the link to Evanescence’s Valentine’s Day-playlist on Spotify, if you didn’t get a chance to hear it yet, so here it is, My Heart Is Broken (Evanescence + Fans Playlist) .

I also thought I should mention that I will soon start on another challenge, so I’ll keep you posted – haha!

“I can’t go on living this way
And I can’t go back the way I came”
My Heart Is Broken – Evanescence)

Well, this is a challenge, and since it is, I need to write about the songs that are given to me. That means writing about some music that I normally don’t listen to. I actually sometimes listen to this song, and other “popular” songs, when I listen to music with my friends.
Today’s song is Ronnie & Clyde by The Lonely Island. Genius group. This song also features Rihanna which I also like. The song was published on their album “Turtleneck & Chain” in 2011.
Here’s the lyrics, and below is the hilarious music video:

I really think that The Lonely Island is a cool group. They make great, funny songs, and this one is my favorite.
The song is a “story”, and a great one too. I don’t know any other words to describe this song other than “funny” and “cool”, but in a different way than I usually use the word. It’s fun in the way that “Ronnie” can’t seem to talk properly when “Clyde” is there, but the second she leaves, he’s rapping like a mad-man. It’s cool in the way that a song about something so ridiculous can be so great.
Thought this song would be easy to say something about, but really, it’s hard for me to write about songs that don’t actually mean a lot to me. This song  just says it all with the video.
Another thing that’s hard with the song is choosing the lyrics quote that I normally do at the end of the post. Especially since it’s like a story, but I will try…

“If you don’t wanna end up dead
You’ll do everything Shy Ronnie says
Tell ’em, Ronnie!”
(Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde – The Lonely Island feat. Rihanna)

Axel Rudi Pell – Glory Night

Second day of the callenge, hell yeah!
Today’s song is Glory Night by Axel Rudi Pell. Published on the album The Crest in 2010.
Lyrics here, and song below:

 

Really great! I can’t actually believe that I don’t listen more to Axel Rudi Pell than I do! Of course, I’ve heard this song before, but I haven’t really sat down with just the song, and listened to it and enjoyed it.
Unfortunately, this is one of those songs that is brilliant, but so hard to say something about. I like the vocalist’s voice, and the lyrics are really good. A real love song, for sure.
There is one thing I have to say, though.
I worship that guitar solo. The guitar playing in general. Wow. That’s all I have to say.

“No storm, no dark clouds can tear us apart
You’re the chosen one deep down in my heart”
(Glory Night – Axel Rudi Pell)

Well, first day of the challenge. Running a little late though, if I were to keep my promise from the last post.
Anyways, today’s song is A Little Piece Of Heaven by Avenged Sevenfold. The song is publised on their album, Avenged Sevenfold, in 2007.
Lyrics is here, and here’s the animated, official music video of this song:

Well, let me just start by saying this song has a twisted music video. It also has  some really twisted lyrics to go with the twisted video, even though I’m sure it’s the other way around (the video is made to match the lyrics).
This pretty much sums up my dear friend too, who actually listens to this song, and loves it! (Of course, she wouldn’t give me songs to write about that she hated!) But I love her for it!
Well, because I can’t relate so much to the lyrics, I don’t listen to this song a lot, but I think it’s good anyways. It may also be good not to listen only to songs that you can relate to.
The classical instruments fits really well in this song, and creates drama to underline the lyrics’ meaning. The lyrics are, as I said, twisted, and literal in one way, but sometimes it’s like that you feel after a break-up (my interpretation of this song, don’t like it, don’t read on!), and you feel so much hate, that you just want to “stab him fifty fucking times” (Yeah, of course I chose to write “him”, I’m a girl, you know!).
“You had my heart, at least for the most part
Cause everybody gotta die sometime, we fell apart
Let’s make a new start”
(A Little Piece Of Heaven – Avenged Sevenfold)

Challenge…

Hi there!
Busy, busy, busy, but I have decided that I want to challenge myself on this blog, so I asked my friends to give me a list of songs that they want me to write about. A bit of a challenge for them too, obviously, cause I haven’t got all the lists yet, but I got one, and I will start with it today. Since my dear friend knows this is a challenge, she decided to really give me something to wrap my brain around to write about. Really challenging, it is! (Okay, I’m well aware that I’m over-using the word “challenge” now, but that’s simply what it is, a challenge).
Anyways, here’s the 5 songs I’m going to write about for the few next posts:

1. Avenged Sevenfold – A Little Piece of Heaven
2. Axel Rudi Pell – Glory Night
3. The Lonely Island – Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde feat Rihanna
4. Nicki Minaj – Super Bass
5. Lil’ Wayne – How to Love

That’s a nice mixture from her very varied music taste. She actually wrote “Helloween – Mr. Torture” for second place, but I’ve already written about that song, as some of you may know, and actually mentioned in the post that I think of my friend when I listen to it! Anyways, she had to pick another song, so she chose Lil’ Wayne – How To Love. Like that song, so I don’t mind, but it would have been easier to write about Mr. Torture

Well, can’t promise you that I will start today, but if I don’t, I will start tomorrow, after 8 O’clock, the deadline, when I’ve finished my History assignment and delivered it one minute to 8… Haha – not kidding.
