In the wake of the heart wrenching news that we received late last night with regards to the world’s loss of Nelson Mandela. I thought it appropriate to post the film trailer to ’MANDELA : A Long Walk To Freedom’. A thrilling story of an ordinary man who rose to the challenge of his times and triumphed - an intimate portrait of the making of a modern icon.
Tata Madiba, thank you for freeing our minds. A legend is gone but the history is alive forever…
This song takes me to the edge of the world and back again, it’s literally perfect. Ed’s smooth vocals accampanied by the acoustic guitar effectively create a loving, passionate song etched with a soulfulness that is undeniable.
Ed explained that the song is about his godparents (man and woman), his dad’s best friends. They had years of friendship without really getting into a serious relationship together but one day at a dinner party hosted by Ed’s mum ‘when you’re older wine hit’s you in a weird way’ he explained, his godfather got down on one knee and proposed to the godmother. After years of being bestfriends one of them finally gathered the courage to tell the other how they feel and of course they asked Ed to sing at their wedding and he wrote ‘Kiss Me’ for them. It’s such a sweet song, but of course can be regarded as sexy baby making music too, like a Thicke song.
A song written for two best friends that fell in love. A courage song. ..
My top winter films that I have to see consist of this: The Butlerstarring John Cusack, Forest Whitaker, David Oyelowo, Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda, Alan Rickman, Cuba Gooding, Lenny Kravitz and so many more. Can hardly contain the excitement.
This was Damien Rice’s baby initially and is a deep and consice intepretaion of my life right now.
"Stones taught me to fly Love taught me to lie Life taught me to die so it’s not had to fall.
When you feel like a cannonball”
Those lines represent him having terrible experiences. Everything that should have been good went bad, and he knows he should be hesitant in this love that he is falling into all over again, but it’s hard for him to listen to his learned logic,”when he floats like a cannonball” and dives right into the affection and hope he’s always wanted but has lost so many times prior.
This talented man came up with another masterpiece yet again, with the album “Post Tropical”. “Cavalier” is the first track that gets released and judging by that I think that McMorrow hasn’t lost his talent at all! Album opener, and new single “Cavalier”—which we have an exclusive premiere of—reveals a new direction. James states: “I wanted to give this record the feel and movement of the hip-hop records that I love”. His haunting vocals and immediately recognisable falsetto are contrasted with an undercurrent of layered beats, and the overall effect is breathtaking. “I remember my first love”, he sings again and again. Well, James, you’re probably not ours. But perhaps you can be our second.
I needed this in my life! So beautiful and touching.
I have a new favourite. This guy has one hell of a voice. He reminds me of a young/modern day Jeff Buckley. The 22 year old Australian made his musical debut at the tender age of 16 on the Australian version of ‘Idol’ and has completely blown up since.
Pure and depraved, sacred and profane; is everything ‘Resolution’ can be summed up to be. Corby went on to define the track as being about:
“I got a little paranoid and I didn’t really leave the house for a couple of days. I couldn’t understand why I was so afraid of the world at this time so I wrote ‘Resolution’. It’s an ode to humanity and the way I want to be with other people and spread some love in an un-cheesy way.” - Matt Corby.
Made in Chelsea bought me to this. Anyone else a die had fan like myself? Ok, ok, I understand this is a hush hush watch, that’s slightly in the guilty pleasures region, so I understand if no one speaks up. It’s also a great show for musical finds may I add, finds like this.Woman’s Hour’s rendition managed to instill laid back guitar strums and soft vocals that flipp a glorious ballad inside out and make it sound downright superb!
'You wouldn't believe what Miley did now!'. 'She is out of control!' - sound familiar? These are notably some of the main headlines we are seeing in relation to Cyrus at the moment. But to be frank with you, I think this girl is pretty smart. Coming from a Marketing Graduates like myselfs perspective, I'd have to say that the way she makes sure that she shocks the world each time into discussing her time and time again, in the end will keep her brand at the tip of peoples tongues ; genious move, well played Miley.
Anyhoo, let’s focus on the music. Cyrus teamed up with these two and wore silver body paint and had a space themed video that makes it seem like you’re watching 50 simultaneous showings of Star Trek. Larrve it.
She’s only 16 years old and is already making a stand and an impact on the perceptions of what is really important in life? A very mature move for someone her age.
The New Zealand native wrote this song as a statement against what was about to become of her life. The song is about the intense fame that she knew that she was about to experience. In the first verse, she mentions chasing her dream of being a musician, and how despite being excited by her success (little bright things I bought), the industry will “never own me”; she’ll stay true to herself.
I am also particularly drawn to the wordplay within the lyrics as it simultaneously merges alternative slow sounds with a dash of pop elements. What a lovely cynical attack on hedonism in popular culture indeed..
This is by far the most heart wrenching music video that I have ever seen in my life. A tear drawing interpretation centered around the death of seven year old Aiyana Stanley-Jones which clearly resonated with Cole…
