Music: Young Guns

Standard

yOUNG-GUNSToday I am recommending the rock band Young Guns since I have recently gotten into their music and absolutely love them.

Technically, I found this band a long while ago as I had listened to a single of theirs on repeat – this was Learn My Lesson. I hadn’t thought much more of them though until a friend of mine reintroduced me to them with the song Bones, which is brilliant! The video is pretty cool too.

As a fan of pop-punk and alternative music, I was bound to love Young Guns as their style of rock really fits into this. The vocalist has a great voice and the rest of the band make the songs sound incredible.

Check out the few videos below as a taste of their music:

Quote: Avril Lavigne

Standard

‘Life is like a roller coaster, live it, be happy, enjoy life.’

‘Well, a lot of people don’t know this about me, but I’m actually shy around people avril-lavigne-latest-wallpapers-6I don’t know. I would just say with my first concert, my first tour, I didn’t really talk onstage. I was like, ‘Thank you, I love you guys,’ or whatever. But now I’ve just kind of learned to work a crowd.’

‘You get built up and put on a pedestal and then people want to bring you down. It can be hurtful. Some people try to make me look bad or not a nice person but it’s completely false.’

‘Why should I care what other people think of me? I am who I am. And who I wanna be.’

‘I have always looked for ways to give back because I think it’s a responsibility we all share.’

‘I’m very free-spirited and crazy. I love to have fun, and I like doing stupid things. At the same time, I’m like a 35-year-old. I have a house. I have a car. I have a steady job. I have a business, and I have to make serious decisions.’

‘I don’t believe war is a way to solve problems. I think it’s wrong. I don’t have respect for the people that made the decisions to go on with war. I don’t have that much respect for Bush. He’s about war, I’m not about war – a lot of people aren’t about war.’

‘I’m very comfortable with how I look. I always have been. I think I look pretty good. There’s nothing I want to change. I’m pretty happy with what I’ve got.’

‘I don’t fight. I don’t believe in it.’

Music: Chicago

Standard

Today I’m recommending the band Chicago and their greatest hits album. I’ve loved this band for a fair few years; ever since my dad got their album on CD and started playing it in the car. I eventually borrowed his CD, put the songs on my MP3 and listened to them myself. Recently, I borrowed the CD again to put it onto my iTunes and from that onto my iPod. I’ve been listening to the album once again almost non-stop.

Chicago is an American rock band who formed in 1967, unsurprisingly, in Chicago. They are one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups having sold more than 100 million records. Despite being dubbed as a rock band, their music tends to fit into other genres like soft rock, jazz fusion and pop rock.

Examples of their music will be below, since I can’t say much more about them without you hearing their music:

Music: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel

Standard

Buffy Cd wholeI’m a massive fan of the TV Show Buffy the Vampire Slayer and somehow, I don’t remember how I got searching for it, I found the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Albums. There are three that I’ve found so far and they include music from the series, music that was played in the series and an official BtVS album.

I’ll list and explain the three albums I have here; they’ll be in the same order as the picture to the right.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Once more, with Feeling

  • This album has the tracks from the Musical Episode (from Series 5) named, unsurprisingly so, Once more, with Feeling.
  • This episode was seen as brilliantly unique and remains one of Joss Whedon’s favourites.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Radio Sunnydale (music from the TV series)

  • This is the unofficial album collecting music from the show, namely music played as soundtracks and tracks played at the Bronze.
  • The music is very much 90s American, but I think for now I think the genre could be a mixture of alternative/punk/pop.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Album

  • This is the official album collecting music from the show, so practically the same as the above album as it also plays soundtracks and music from the Bronze and has a similar genre.
  • Both albums have different tracks.

It’s hard to talk about the entirety of three albums as brief as I’m going to, but I think these albums are unique and include a lot of music of which is probably unheard and is very much not mainstream. I found the music to be really good and I liked that the album has a lot of different tracks so that if you don’t like one, it doesn’t degrade the whole thing, because you can skip that song and find another you do like.

The final album I would like to mention is the Official ANGEL album (ANGEL: Live fast, Die Never) that takes the soundtracks and music from the Buffy spin off series ANGEL. Now this I don’t rave about so much because it is heavily soundtrack based rather than songs and that’s down purely to the tone of the show, it doesn’t have something like the Bronze. Despite this I have found there to be about four songs that I really like and that has fortunately made me pleased that I bought this album too.
