So here I am. As I am writing this I am listening to Adele’s song “Hello” which I’m sure most of you have heard by now. I thought I would start this post off about her new album. Now I love all kinds of music. Even though I grew up in the 90’s, yes, the dreaded boy band era, I promise I am not ruined or biased by that. I enjoy all kinds of music. I’m not too keen on country but I will address that in a later post. I was very excited to listen to Adele’s new album “25”. As soon as I popped the CD into my car’s player the sweet voice of Adele filled my ears. There is something magical about her voice. It is so raw, so pure. You can feel the emotion through every note she sings. Her new album has some great ballads such as “Remedy” and “When we were young.” Although most of her songs are deep and emotional there a couple that are upbeat. I found her songs very powerful and uplifting. She has broken all sorts of music records with her album; she is definitely a force to be reckoned with.
As I mentioned before I grew up in the 90’s. There were the Backstreet Boys, N’SYNC and too many ridiculous boy bands too name. R&B was at its peak and MTV was still playing music videos. I loved that I grew up with the 90’s music. Yes there were some questionable songs, bands, and singers but overall it was a really amazing time for music. Now I grew up listening to not only the music of my generation but also that of my father’s. He filled my head with songs of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s as well, and I thank him for that. There really isn’t any song I don’t know that plays on an oldies station. I actually know more of the older music than that of the music that comes out now. Don’t even get me going on the Beibs or the pop that comes out now. In my opinion song writing and music has taken a turn for the worst. That is why I lean more towards indie bands or music of the past. Plain and simple music was so much better. In my later posts I will post about the local music scene and touch on some of, in my opinion, the greatest songs and musicians of all time. Thanks for listening! If you haven’t listened to Adele’s new album I definitely recommend it! Keep on rocking!
