Throwback Thursday … Drive Darling

This is the song that you can hum immediately when you hear it for the first time.

Drive darling, drive darling, drive darling, drive darling, drive.

The acoustic guitars are already enough to leaverage the timbre of whole songs. Lyrics and melody are just so comfy and make-sense. One thing that impressed me immediately is the bridge. The contrast successfully makes the difference and make you alert of the music. Lovely.

P.S. Music Video is so artistic. At least, they wear enough clothes instead of being almost naked in winter.

 

Throwback Thursday … Alicia Keys – Lesson Learnt

I was a huge fans of Alicia Keys ( and John Mayer as well). She tremendously influenced me music-wise – from A Woman’s Worth in Songs in A Minor, If I Ain’t Got You and Diary in the Diary of Alicia Keys, live performance in Unplugged (Actually I have watched Unplugged for more than 10 times… lol) and Lesson Learnt in As I Am. I feel like the pieces she written has been changed from deeply soulful to pop R&B. Yet, they mostly are related to feminism, being yourselves etc.

Years later, it turns to be a bit boring. Each song is featured with “Awwwwww… “, like “No One, No One, No Oneeeeeeeeawwwwwww” in No One or “This Girl is on Fireeeeeeeawwwwww!”. Well, even my mum thinks that her songs turn to be boring now. That’s why, for me, it’s better to reminisce the old time…….

Music Industry is just like Project Runway, like Heidi Klum said “Today you are in, next day you are out!” It’s great to write the songs you are good at. Meanwhile, audience is looking for something new as well.
