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 ...

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 ...

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

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 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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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-...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Comments under the YT video suggest that the 2 characters are from a (volleyball-themed) manga/anime series called Haikyuu, and that the song's Romaji title is " Ifuudoudou " and the video is a cover by Shoose of the original. Following that trail led via this other video of Shoose's version which gives the info that the original is by Luka, Miku, Gumi, IA ...

Possibly "Teenage Failure" (YouTube clip) by English folk rock duo Chad & Jeremy, which contains the specified chorus. Calling it a "hit" might be a stretch, it was released as a single, but never charted. However, it was featured in an episode of the 1960s Batman television show.

This site shows album sales broken down into genres in America. Is this of any use? It is something close to what you already have, but shows it up to 2014 (from 2008).

At a guess, you might be thinking of the strange career of Mrs. Miller. The William Hung of her day, she was a middle-aged housewife with aspirations to opera, whose producer coaxed her into recording several hit albums of pop-culture standards in the 1960's. The majority of her appeal was based on the modesty of her talents, and she later accused her ...

I contacted a music store chain in South Africa, and they said: We cannot confirm that there will be one this year as there was no word on the CD from the supplier.

From what I searched on the web, Pitbull does that "woo" thing kind of to enhance his "PitBull" name, because the woo is supposed to imitate a howl or a yip from a dog. There is no real name for the woo. Many rappers or hip hop singers add vocal sound effects to the song or soundtrack to "spice up" the track. Hope this helps.

So far, I'd agree pretty much with all the existing 4 answers, so in the hopes of providing something new... Backing vocalists, the good ones, have a career as a backing vocalist. They will be working long, long after most of the acts they were booked to record/tour with have got their 5th gold star at the "Would you like fries with that?" establishment of ...

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 ...
