Someone Like You – Adele

Posted by on Aug 22, 2011 in Music Monday | 5 comments

One of the most promising new singers of today, Adele’s voice is one that I’d hear over and over again especially in this song. Being dubbed as the new Amy Winehouse even before the demise of the latter, she’d surely make it big…although many suggest that her smoking won’t do her any good. I do hope that that sultry contralto voice of hers remain in the music scene for many more years….so good!

Various Artists…

Posted by on Aug 18, 2011 in CDs | 0 comments

Back home we had this really big book of songs with accompanying guitar notes for those who would like to play. The songs were random and the artists were also written down just below the title. As a kid of 7 years, I always wondered who were the Various Artists. I thought then that they’re a group of singers like the Carpenters or a band like the Beatles and America. 😀

Little did I know that well, they are singers who came together to record a song…just like in We are the World. I got to know it when I was about 10-years-old…read it on a magazine. teehee. Various artists may also refer to a compilation album…containing tracks from different artists/performers.

Since I’m totally lagged behind what’s new in the music world, such compilation is best for me. The NOW 79 CD has 44 features hits that includes Adele’s Someone Like You , a song she released last February…it is the longest reigning number one single in Ireland in 2011 spending six weeks at the top and has been on top in other countries as well…most importantly, I love this song!

Included too are Bruno Mars’ recent release The Lazy Song and Katy Perry’s latest hitbomb Last Friday Night. There are also new releases, well all singles included are new releases but since they’re so new I’m totally unfamiliar…Take Katy B’s Broken Record – it was released in March and placed number 8 in the UK Single charts but I’ve yet to listen to it and a handful of other tracks. This CD is perfect for me to keep up with what’s new and in in the music industry…I feel so left behind…

Natsuzora (Summer Sky)

This is the theme song of the movie The Girl who Leapt Through Time. It’s no Joe Hisashi but being Japanese, it is a well-composed and truly appealing song, at least for me.

Another Piano Session Post ;)

Posted by on Aug 9, 2011 in Piano | 9 comments

You’ve seen her here during the early launch of  Wednesday Whites. 😉 Looking for something to post today, I realized that most of her piano photos are actually in white. This is one of her earlier sessions, she was 8-years-old then. I posted a video of her playing Ode to Joy on this blog too — here it is (please click).
