Music: Queen+Adam Lambert

QAL-poster-062114-WinnipegQueen and Adam Lambert. Together. Spectacular.

A couple of weeks ago I recommended the American musician Adam Lambert and I mentioned his performance with Queen on BBC One for New Year’s Eve. I figured the pairing needed a recommendation of their own.

Since the death of Queen’s front-man Freddie Mercury, the band has been performing with various other artists filling the vocalist position but, in my opinion, no person has been more fitting for the role than Adam Lambert. The group as a whole work so well and there are significant similarities between Adam and the great Freddie Mercury, such as their incredible vocal talents and their wardrobe and make-up choices.

Over the past year, Queen and Adam Lambert have been touring around the country and if these concerts have been anything like the one I watched on BBC One, there are literally no words for the incredible pairing the two make. Adam was also praised significantly by the media and fans alike.

Queen is still as amazing as ever, Bryan May still kills it on the guitar and Roger Meddows Taylor still brings it on the drums. The relationship between the two of them and Adam is so heart-warming to watch.

Everything just seems to fit to create an amazing show. Here are some clips from the concert:

Music: Adam Lambert

Standard

adam-lambert-071112- (16)My newest music obsession is Adam Lambert. I’m not entirely sure how I came to know about him, but for a very long time I have been listening to odd songs of his and loving them.

Adam Lambert is an american singer who rose to fame after becoming a runner-up in the 2009 series of American Idol. Since then he has been growing in popularity, not least of which was helped by his performances with Queen, as elaborated on below.

I received Adam’s album Trespassing for Christmas after it being on my wishlist for the last couple of years since it’s realise in 2012. I have been listening to it non-stop. But not only this… my recent obsession started after watching a certain concert of his on BBC One on New Year’s Eve. In this concert, Adam adam_lambert_publicity_2012_pwas performing as the front-man for Queen. 

Adam’s performance in this concert was amazing. The group as a whole worked so well and there are significant similarities between Adam and the greatly-missed, deceased, former front-man Freddie Mercury, one of which is their incredible vocal talents. Adam wowed the British public and the media, following his performances, were singing his praises. Over the past year, Queen and Adam Lambert have been touring around the country and are performing more shows at the end of January.

I think it’s time for me to provide you with some evidence so here are some videos with his music:

Ps. I won’t be posting for the next two weeks as I will be concentrating on coursework and exams. I apologise for the disruption and I’ll see you on the 26th of January!

A Letter to New Years

Standard

Dear New Years,

New Years, we have a complex relationship as you know. I used to be excited by the new  year, a new number, a new month… but right now I would rather ignore your existence, I’d rather ignore that this is a special occasion, I’m ignoring that people are partying tonight as I never really have much to do at this juncture.happy_new_year_2015_hq

But moving on from the fact of the event itself, moving into the New Year is scary. I have to leave behind the joy of Christmas and return to school, to work, where I can see only coursework that needs to be finished and exams that need to be sat and for neither I am ready. The new year brings the end of an era as I ready myself to leave my school and my friends and embark on that new ‘adventure’ called University.

It is always a bittersweet time as we transition from what we are used to into something new and unknown. This coming year is going to be extremely bittersweet and so as I come to January 1st I fear what I know is coming and hope that some goodness comes from what I don’t know is coming.

Although I step unwillingly to the New Year, I feel a slight excitement for all the good that I’m sure is to come. New Years, I hope you can give everyone the happiness that they deserve.

Ps. Hello! As with my Dear Christmas post, I wrote this in a very short period of time. I just tried to get my thoughts down and I know this isn’t written particularly well but I felt like I needed to post something a little more personal, a little bit more appropriate for this time. I want to wish you all a Happy New Year!
