Are you sure the lyrics were not 'I wanna be your lover, I don't want to be your friend'? What you probably watched was a music video of I Wanna Be Your Lover by La Bionda. This and Heavy Metal both have the same animation style, so I think this is what you're looking for. As a side note, another song with similar lyrics is I Wanna Be Your Lover by The ...

The song is about the past, explained Coxon to NME: In his track by track guide to 'The Magic Whip' for NME, Coxon explained that the track 'My Terracotta Heart' was about his relationship with Albarn. He admitted: "I knew it was going to be an incredibly sad song, which is why I put the crying guitar on there. What I didn't know at the time ...

For brief history and notable artists, I'd like to recommend this blog post (really good): 50 Most Influential K-Pop Artists Series Index This book has many interesting facts about Korean Cool: The Birth of Korean Cool: How One Nation Is Conquering the World Through Pop Culture I'm a Korean live in Seoul. I can't explain/describe properly (miserable ...

I am not sure that there is a specific name for this style that you could google and get a comprehensive list. It is very common for the time. One of the first things I did was to look up the chord progression. It is a very standard progression for the time 1 6 4 5. This wiki article is a good place to start looking for similar songs: 50s Progression

Wikipedia (currently) describes the core genre elements of pop music as follows: Identifying factors include generally short to medium-length songs written in a basic format (often the verse-chorus structure) as well as the common employment of repeated choruses, melodic tunes, and hooks. -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pop_music It's usually ...

I would say is vocalizing some scat. On these three lives, for example, he sings differently : Live at Buenos Aires Live at Athens (just says Hey!) Live at Modena It seems it doesn't say the exact same "words". Also, this review article of Uncut says : “Sledgehammer” (...) starts (...) with Gabriel singing gibberish. Page archive. FYI: These are not ...

What about Daft Punk's Around the World music video? The song features in their first album, "Homework", released in 1997, and was released as a single the same year. According to your description, the "video consists of one set – a multi-colored, multi-tiered construction of steps". It involves five groups of kind-of-dancers, each composed by four ...

The modern pop vocal style has its distant origins in the black American gospel music of the 50s and 60s. Compare this early recording of Aretha Franklin from the 1950s for an example. It's a more emotional and raw sound, with a more bluesy, African-American diction, and an abundant use of improvisational melisma, the singing of multiple notes on a single ...

Backing vocalists neither have to overly cater to the "young and sexy" optics, nor do they have to provide a cutting voice for dramatic effect. As a consequence, their voice, control, and musicality tends to gain quality over much of their professional career. The identity of the act is not tailored to them so they can just move between productions and ...

I found it ! I hope this the right one, Story Of My Life, by the danish band Blast. It is from 1986 and sang by the female singer Lise Dandanell. The lyrics you quoted start at 1:13.

If the vocals are like the Vamps, could it be one of their songs? I am guessing 'Last Night'

I got the same results as you when I googled Love Yourself Justin Bieber genre and Dancing On My Own Calum Scott genre, which is where I'm going to assume you got those songs' genres from. However, when I went to the Wikipedia pages for the songs, both "Love Yourself" and "Dancing On My Own" have a genre of Acoustic Pop. In addition, AllMusic said that ...

I didn't quite get one word/phrase, but might be good enough for the shower ;) enjoy Halt dich fest, wir werden fliegen Träume siegen irgendwann einmal dein kleines Herz kannte nur Lügen du, ich bin ab heute für dich da so wie in Hollywood, Hollywood, Hollywood davon träum ich jede Nacht so wie in Hollywood, Hollywood, Hollywood wo das Glück den Siegern ...

This is a classic example of a misheard lyric (sometimes known as a "mongdegreen"). If you read the lyrics on Coldplay's own website and compare it with the original song you can hear the original text is "Roman cavalry choirs are singing". This is a fairly obscure reference (made a bit clearer by the reference to missionaries two lines later) and it's easy ...

The reason is the different vocal techniques used by women in classical and pop music. Male singers mostly use similar techniques in both genres. The higher part of their range is preferred, particularly in solo singing. In classical music women sing in head voice which fits naturally about an octave above a male voice. The most important difference in ...

Assuming you are asking about the son "Voyage, Voyage" by Desireless. The song was sung by Claudie Fritsch-Mentrop under her stage name "Desireless" and composed and produced by Jean-Michel Rivat and Dominique Dubois. She didn't even start working with the composers/producers of the song until 1984. From her web site: En 1984, j'entame ma ...

This is all standard stuff except for the fact that it's in B. They're adding some extra notes to the chords but the basic changes are B B G#m G#m E F# B B B B G#m G#m E F# B B E E F# F# E E F# F# E E F# F# G#m F# E E G# F# B B etc. It looks like they might be using some non-standard tuning, but I'll leave that up to the guitar specialists.

In the 90s, music was dominated by California (San Francisco, Los Angeles), New York, Seattle, Miami, Chicago, and Nashville. That is, there was a lot of various urban presence in the charts within the United States. So a lot of American values were represented. London also had a major impact with the arrival of Britpop. In the 2010s, you see the rising ...

To start with, even the best singer doesn't hit every note perfectly right. As such, singing out of key is a gradual thing. For the two songs you mention, I would not say that Ed sings out of tune. On contrary, his music has a quite produced feeling, and it wouldn't surprise me if some sour notes have had their pitch corrected. I wouldn't swear on this ...

I was wondering if there a is guide so you can link a specific sound to a synth One specific synth sound can be carved with several different synths and through many different synthesis types and techniques, so I don't think it is feasible to build a guide like the one you describe. There are guides on how to achieve specific sounds through specific synths ...

This is called an earworm. I'm not aware of one specific musical meme that dominates all others --if there was just one, I'm sure we'd all know it by heart --but the article referenced above describes some of the common characteristics of successful earworms. The general idea of there being some particular musical figure of particular power is well-...

You may be thinking of the recently-named (and stupidly so) "millenial whoop." It's not a 3- or 5-note sequence, but rather an alternation between the 3rd and 5th notes of the scale. (Here is a similar link.) It's not a new thing; it's been in music for decades now. But some bozo must have decided that calling it "millenial" something would probably get ...

(For future readers, the example cited by the OP begins at around the 0:52 mark, though it returns throughout the song.) When I first read your question, my immediate thought was elision. This term, taken from linguistics, basically suggests an overlap of two thoughts. As one thought ends, either the next thought has already begun or it begins at precisely ...

Yeah it’s Gabrielese. He’s talked about it in interviews. Some excerpts from the article: Peter will be the subject of a one-hour interview special entitled Vocal Chords: Iarla Ó Lionáird In conversation with Peter Gabriel that will be broadcast on RTE Lyric FM in Ireland (and online) on Friday 26 December at 7pm.
