Is it too early to call song of the year?

Olivia Rodrigo, 'Drivers License': Song You Need to Know

Olivia Rodrigo’s debut single “Drivers License” makes it difficult to not believe that both she and the moving power ballad are meant to completely dominate 2021. Rodrigo’s nostalgic, piano-assisted song builds slowly as a story about the 17-year-old finally getting her license to drive. But the monumental occasion is soured by her heartbreak: she was supposed to celebrate the accomplishment with her ex, who has moved on to an older blonde that she reveals is “everything I’m insecure about.” So Rodrigo drives through the suburbs, heartbroken and angry, wondering if any of the feelings were ever even real.

As the song progresses, Rodrigo’s voice builds to cathartic howls of pain, and the bridge is a lush, layered release as she reveals “I still fuckin’ love you.” Before “Drivers License,” Rodrigo was building a name for herself over the past five years through Disney.

Brian Eno

From the 1970s onwards, Eno's installations have included the sails of the Sydney Opera House in 2009[4] and the Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank in 2016. Fréhel. Fréhel (French: [fʁe.ɛl]; born Marguerite Boulc'h; 13 July 1891 – 3 February 1951) was a French singer and actress.


Biography[edit] Born in Paris, France to a poor and dysfunctional Breton family, Marguerite Boulc'h was a child left to a life on the streets in the sordid side of Paris. In her teens she got a break when she met one of the female music-hall performers who heard her sing and introduced her to show business promoters. She began performing under the stage name Pervenche, and soon met and married Robert Hollard, a performer who used the nom de guerre "Roberty". Hildegarde. Hildegarde Loretta Sell (February 1, 1906 – July 29, 2005) was an American cabaret singer, well known for the song "Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup".

My Truth. 1999 studio album by Robyn Background[edit] Development[edit] I feel more safe about myself and my music now, and I've become more focused on maintaining a positive whole on the record, even though certain songs that I write are rather sad.

My Truth

—Robyn about My Truth, June 1999[1] Robyn co-wrote all of My Truth's fourteen tracks.[10][11] Although the singer returned to Sweden from North America in the summer of 1998, she returned to the US several times to work on the album. Mele Kalikimaka. Song The Beach Boys recorded a song of the same name for their album Ultimate Christmas, but it contains lyrics and music completely different from the song written by Robert Alex Anderson.

Mele Kalikimaka

Origin of the phrase[edit] The expression Mele Kalikimaka, despite its foreign sound, is actually borrowed directly from English. But since the Hawaiian language has a different phonological system from English, it is not possible to render a pronunciation that is especially close to Merry Christmas. Standard Hawaiian does not have the /r/ or /s/ of English and its phonotactic constraints do not permit consonants at the end of syllables or consonant clusters. Jessica Simpson.

John Coltrane - Equinox (Original) Marta Sanchez Quintet at Blue Note (El Rayo de Luz) Hypnagogic pop. Hypnagogic pop is pop or psychedelic music[2][3] that explores elements of cultural memory and nostalgia by drawing on the popular entertainment and recording technology of the past, particularly the 1980s.[4] The genre developed in the mid to late 2000s as American lo-fi and noise musicians began referencing retro aesthetics remembered from childhood, such as 1980s radio rock, new age, MTV one-hit wonders, and Hollywood synthesizer soundtracks,[5] as well as analog technology and outdated pop culture.

Characteristics[edit] Hypnagogic pop has a preoccupation with both decaying analog technology and bombastic representations of synthetic elements in 1980s and 1990s popular culture, according to critic Adam Trainer. Downtempo. Diane Warren. There You'll Be (Remastered) Maltin on Movies: Diane Warren. Haim Cover Robyn's 'Show Me Love' on BBC Radio 1's Piano Sessions. For their latest radio pop/soft-rock cover, Haim have decided to perform a Robyn song — but it’s not “Dancing on My Own” or anything from the Body Talk era, when Robyn became the international patron saint of dancing out your feelings. Instead, the sisterly trio from L.A. performed “Show Me Love” — one of Robyn’s early radio hits from the Nineties — on BBC Radio 1’s Piano Sessions with Este Haim on lead vocals. The band beautifully adapted the pop song into a searing piano ballad, and it pairs well with their intimate new song “Hallelujah,” which they performed in the same session.

In addition to their Robyn cover, Haim recently unveiled a cover of Leonard Cohen’s 1984 song “If It Be Your Will,” produced by Ariel Rechtshaid and released the same day as Cohen’s posthumous album Thanks for the Dance. The song is featured on Hanukkah+, a new collection of Hanukkah songs featuring other contributions by The Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo, Jack Black and more. Irving Burgie. Stevie Wonder - Superstition.
