Looking to Start a Cover Group!

I'm aiming to band together with nine other individuals who want to make a cover group. I've mentioned this in my appreciation card for J.R. from Nu'EST. This card is to go into more detail about what I would like to do.

What am I looking for?

I have an account on Smule's Sing! app and there are a few cover groups on there. This isn't the first time I've wanted to do something like this, but that app has really given me ideas for really making this happen. Dancers. Rappers. Singers. Cutie pies. I want you all to make this happen. What I imagine is us doing profiles for each members, like with the K-Celebs. You know, with birthdate, blood type, likes, dislikes, random facts. We don't have to disclose anything you don't want to though, so don't worry. We will come up with a group name together and I'm looking for no more than nine other members but exceptions may be made. ^^

How will we do covers?

We can make a YouTube channel that the members will all have access to and upload different things there. Maybe we can take requests to sing or dance certain songs and other videos for people to just get to know us. For those that particularly want to sing or rap, I honestly suggest also getting the Sing! app. You can do karaoke and open mic so we can be as creative as we want. The app is free and I intend to be the one keeping a VIP account so no one else in the group has to, but anyone else that wants to is welcome to do so as well. You get a little more privileges as a VIP but I know that not everyone wants to pay or whatever the circumstances may be. ^^;
Now, we don't have to do all K-Pop songs. If there's a song in English, Chinese, Japanese, or any other language that you'd like to do, that's perfectly fine! If we have another member or members that can sing with you, go for it! This group is to showcase our talents and to have constant contact with someone that you can create something with. Also, to make friends and have someone that you can just talk to and relate with whenever you like. Oh, and I'm not looking to make this all girls or all guys either. It can be and combination of however many. ^^
If anyone would like to be something like a manager for the group or an editor for our videos or even album art, I'd like to know, too! If you have a Line, KakaoTalk, Kik, or anything like that and you want to join, it would be really helpful so that we can have group chats and communicate and such that way. Also, if you guys have any ideas for how to do this, make it more fun and interesting, I'm all ears! Please, help me make this happen, guys! ♡
Tagging my lovelies to help me with this! ♡ @Danse @xanderskissme @britneyamanda @kpopandkimchi @AimeeH @ChelseaJay @amobigbang

@Danse at least I'm not alone in the no singing talent group!
@LenaBlackRose I'm also part of of the no singing talent club. I was actually part of a dancing group that also did singing for the local renfest. I swear I got that gig because instrumentally wise I'm a good musician and they thought musician= singer. Also had to dance decently to even be considered for an audition as a musician. It's not all about skill level, personality is also a big part. If you have fun then most people will ignore singing a tad bit off key!
@Danse Lol I usually do it to bother my siblings!! I wish I could sing 😢 on a better note my brother says I sound better with Korean songs.. (I think it's cause they sound cooler than English songs)
@LenaBlackRose Lol I reserve my screeching for the shower and while driving. 😂 *high five* We still rock though.
Can I join? I can kind of rap. I'm good at rapping in English and kind of good in Korean. I'm good at singing in both, but not as god with Korean with English. And no way in ever can I dance. But I try to.

Want To Write A Song? Here's How!
Musicians are strange creatures, cursed with melodies spinning around in their heads constantly. It's hard to recognize what words are brilliant lyrics, or just fleeting thoughts. The mind of a musician is a jumbled mess, with little bits and pieces of melodies and broken love songs constantly dragging behind them. My newest effort premieres at the end of this post! So stay tuned if you want to learn how to write music, and where these tips can get you. This card was inspired by @buddyesd and our conversations about music and songwriting over the past few days. 1. The first step is to know your music! Videos: Some of my favorites. I've been a musician my whole life. I started singing in my terrible two's and ended up getting a guitar at age 11 and starting my first rock band at 12. My life has always centered on what band I was obsessed with at the time. It all started with Green Day... Then the Ramones... Then My Chemical Romance... Thirty Seconds To Mars... The Sex Pistols... The Libertines... Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pete Doherty and on and on. And so on and so fourth. The point I'm trying to make here, is that you have to go through a lot of music to gain the inspiration and the fortitude to start making your own. Influences are a huge part of songwriting. They help you form what kind of identity you want as an artist. 2. Know that the perfect song won't come overnight. Your development takes time! (Video 1: One of the first songs I ever wrote (2009) "The Way You Talk" / tried and true pop-punk) (Video 2: A later rock song, 2014 "Tourist" a little more sophisticated, deeper lyrics, more passion, messy garage-rock feel) I didn't wake up and just know how to play the guitar and write songs, it took time. I sat in my room for hours on end, plucking away, humming, writing down and recording things and ultimately a lot of the stuff I wrote early on was complete shit. It just now, feels like I'm writing really meaningful stuff. So, just give yourself some time, and know that every musician goes through an evolution at every level. I started out writing simple, three chord punk songs in the vein of Green Day, my favorite band. That slowly evolved into more anthemic and stadium-like tunes when I started getting into bands like The Rolling Stones, U2 and so fourth... Now I've evolved into this heart-wrenching raw, indie influenced folk-y sound that is directly linked to my love for Pete Doherty's solo album Grace / Wastelands, a collection of melancholy tracks dedicated to love and confusion. My new song, Counselor (heard here), is a haunting acoustic ballad influenced by more singer / songwriter acts since I'm solo right now. So things have to evolve with the times. 3. Do some research. You have to know where you came from in order to know where you can go. This being said, every musician's routine is different. I just like to pick up my guitar, start strumming a few chords and a melody or lyric will come, and I'll go from there. Some people sit at a keyboard and bang out a melody, Others just jam and find a chord progression they like, to start with and build a melody on top of it. If you're not that experienced, you have to do some research. Look up the greats: Lennon and McCartney, Richards and Jagger. The classics are a great way to look at song structure. Then, look up your favorite artist's songwriting routines and experiment with them, mix and match styles until you feel like you can get somewhere. Like the lead singer of Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong writes his melodies first, lyrics later. Both come at once for me, melody and lyric, almost always. So it just depends on how your brain works, and you won't know until you try. 4. JUST GO FOR IT!!! Music isn't perfect and most of the time it isn't beautiful or polished. So if you want to start creating your own, just start doing it. Hum melodies, listen to your favorite artists, pick up an instrument and do it! If you have the passion and you want to learn, anything is possible. I'm here to help too, if you have any questions or thoughts. Do not be afraid, because you could write the next number one single in your bedroom...you never know ;)! My newest song, written and recorded on August 12th, 2015 is up on Sound Cloud now, here's the link if you're interested. See! Songwriting isn't hard! ;) "Lying To The Wind" By: Tess Stevens
Snoop Doggy Dogg
미국의 래퍼 겸 배우. 특유의 목소리와 랩 스타일로 호불호가 갈리는 편이기도 하지만, 미국 힙합 씬에서는 다섯 손가락 안에 꼽힐 만큼 중요한 인물로 거론되는 인물입니다. 이전 예명인 스눕 독은 그 유명한 스누피에서 따왔다고 합니다. 얼굴이 스누피를 닮아서 어머니가 붙여준 별명이라고 하네요. 주로 가사에 섹드립, 마약에 관한 것을 많이 집어넣고 크립스 갱단 출신이라서 자기 갱단 자랑질도 많이 넣기도 합니다. 빈민가 태생으로 범죄에 연루되어 교도소 살이를 하기도 했으며, 자신의 데뷔 앨범이 발매되기 전에 살인 사건에 연루되었었는데 길고 긴 법정 재판 끝에 무죄 판결를 받았습니다. G-Funk라는 새로운 스타일을 정립한 닥터 드레의 첫 솔로 앨범 "The Chronic"에서 다수의 곡에 피쳐링해 앨범의 사회현상적 평가와 더불어 주목받으며 등장, 이후 1993년 드레가 전곡을 프로듀싱 한 데뷔 앨범 "Doggystyle"로 엄청난 성공을 거두며 핫샷 데뷔합니다. 이 앨범은 차트에서 1위를 차지한 최초의 데뷔 앨범이 되었고, 당시 웨스트에서 가장 영향력 있는 레이블 데스 로우 레코드 소속이었으나, 드레가 Suge Knight과의 불화로 레이블을 떠난 후 혼자 힘으로 1996년 2집 "Tha Doggfather"를 발매하고 이후 자신도 슈그 나잇의 갑질에 빡쳐서 레이블을 떠나 당시 대세이던 Master P의 No Limit Records와 계약하여 4, 5집을 발표해 재기했으나, 감옥에 갇힌 Suge Knight의 협박을 받기도 했다고 합니다. 90년대 말에 그는 다시 닥터 드레와 함께 작업하였으며 그 결과 'Bitch Please', 'Still D.R.E.,' 그리고 'The Next Episode'와 같은 뛰어난 트랙을 만들어 냅니다. Drop It Like It's Hot (Feat. Pharrrel Williams) 21세기 들어서는 다수의 앨범에서 프로듀싱 팀 The Neptunes와 작업하며 메가 히트곡 'Drop It Like It's Hot' 등을 만들어내기도 하였습니다. 그러나 요즘은 투 쇼트나 클릭의 E-40처럼 최신 트렌드에 너무 동화되어 서먹함을 느낀 골수 팬들도 많았다고... 소녀시대의 미국 진출 앨범에 피쳐링을 했습니다. 또한 K-POP을 즐겨 듣는다고 얘기한 적이 있습니다. 2012년 11월 5일 부산 벡스코, 10월 6일 일산 킨텍스에서 내한공연을 가졌습니다. Epic Rap Battles of History 시즌 2 12편에 모세 역할로 출연하셨습니다! 그리고 71%의 득표율로 당당하게 승리. 오오 스눕독 오오 2012년 7윌엔 자신의 예명을 "스눕 라이언"이라고 바꿨습니다. 자메이카의 절에서 하사받은 이름이라고. 자신은 그곳에서 다시 태어났으며 사실 밥 말리의 환생이라고 합니다(...) 마리화나를 너무 많이 한 거 아닐까하지만 이는 스눕이 레게 활동 시에만 쓰는 예명으로 엄밀히 말해 개명은 아닙니다. 2013년 4월 22일에 본격적으로 스눕 라이온으로 개명을 하고 레게 장르로 나온 첫 앨범인 'Reincarnated'가 발매되었으며 기존의 힙합 팬들은 아쉬웠겠지만 기대 이상의 퀄리티를 보여주며 제대로 레게 뮤직의 정수를 뽑아냈다는 호평을 받았습니다. 특히 드레이크와 자신의 딸인 Cori.B 가 피쳐링한 'No Guns Allowed'와 같이 총기 소지 반대를 내는 목소리를 낸 곡은 메세지적인 면에서 극찬을 받았습니다. 2014년에 컴백하는 싸이의 (무리수...) 신곡에 피처링을 하고 뮤직비디오에 출연하기도 했습니다. 2015년 5월, 13집 'Bush'가 발매되었고, 프로듀서는 스눕 독의 히트곡 중 하나인 'Drop It Like It's hot'을 제작했던 The Neptunes입니다. 쇼미더머니4에 출연하였습니다. 그런데 스눕독이 출연하는 회에서 10분 싸이퍼 방식이 논란이 되었었죠..... 창피함은 왜 시청자의 몫인지... 여담이지만 미국에서 대마초하면 스눕 독이라고 합니다. 미국에서는 스눕 독의 Smoke Weed Every Day는 필수 요소 수준.
BTS Fire and WTF Is Tropical House?
Alright y'all, we're going to talk about a topic that affects each and every one of us: TROPICAL HOUSE. It's a subgenre of house music that is influenced by instruments such as steel drums usually used in Jamaican, Cuban, etc music. It's been getting more and more popularity these days but I was still surprised to hear it in at BTS song! It is most noticeable in Rap Mon's part at 2:15. That awesome sound in the back? That's classic Tropical House music! Here are some more examples if you dig that sound: Jeremih - Don't Tell 'Em Thanks to @Lizzeh for reminding me about this awesome example!!!! Justin Bieber - Sorry & What Do You Mean Beibs made his comeback completely backed by this music. It sounds fresh, fun, and you CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT. Kygo - Stay Often referenced as the king of the rebirth of TropHouse, Kygo is your go-to DJ if you want nothing but Tropical House in your ears. Skrillex and Diplo - Where Are Ü Now This was the song that really brought the sound to mainstream recently. Those "dolphin sounds" or however you choose to describe it...yup, TropHouse. Fifth Harmony - Worth It & Work It's leaking into the girl group pop scene too with Fifth Harmony using an almost 8-bit take on Trop-Pop. Still groovy. Jamie XX - Loud Places And then we have Jamie XX that combines his smooth sleepy sounds from the XX with the catchy pop of Tropical House. Needless to say, it was love at first listen. Even though it has existed for a long time (and the influences that inspired existed looooooooooong before) I'm glad to hear more of it now in mainstream music! Enjoy!
날 미치게 했던 X-Japan
☆ Weekend ☆ 초등학교 동창이었던 여자아이가 알려줘서 고등학교때 듣게 되었던 X-JAPAN입니다. 이 음악을 계기로 일본 음악에 눈을 뜨기 시작했더랬죠... 1982년에 결성된 일본의 비주얼계 록밴드로서 일본의 록, 메탈계를 대표하는 밴드들 중 하나로 1997년 해체 이후, 2007년 영화 쏘우 4의 OST인 I.V 를 발표하면서 재결성하였습니다. ☆ 紅 (Kurenai) ☆ 이들에 대한 대중의 평은 실제 이상의 과대평가와 그로 인한 반동에서 비롯한 과소평가의 양극단을 오가지만 LUNA SEA, GLAY, Dir en grey부터 나이트메어 등 수많은 후배 밴드들에게 적잖은 영향을 미친 점이나 1992년 일본인 아티스트 최초로 3일 연속 도쿄 돔 콘서트를 성사시킨 일화 등을 감안한다면 확실히 일본 음악사에 한 획을 그은 밴드 중 하나라는 점에 대해서는 부인할 수 없죠. ☆ Endless Rain (The Last Live) ☆ 기본적인 구성은 트윈 기타로 기타 솔로부분을 두 기타가 나누어서 연주하며, 보통 파타가 백킹 부분을 히데가 리딩 부분을 연주하였습니다. 근데 배킹과 리딩이 분명 따로이긴 한데, 딱히 내용상 큰 차이를 가지지는 않는다고하네요. 단, 곡에 따라 차이는 존재한다고 합니다. ☆ SILENT JEALOUSY ☆ 멤버들 간의 사이가 상당히 나쁜 편으로 그의 한 예로서 HIDE의 사망 1주기 트리뷰트 앨범 나올 때도 Yoshiki와 PATA, HEATH가 각자 곡을 따로 하나씩 넣었고 TOSHI는 불참했습니다. ☆ Tears ☆ 아이러니하게도 한국 음악계에 가장 많은 영향을 끼친, 그리고 표절을 당한 밴드 중 하나일 거라고 생각합니다. X의 최고 명곡 중 하나인 ENDLESS RAIN은 녹색지대의 '준비없는 이별'과 똑같습니다. 코드 진행은 물론 중간의 나레이션이 나오는 부분까지도 똑같기 때문에 일본노래가 노래방에 들어오기 전에는 X의 팬들이 이 노래를 틀어놓고 ENDLESS RAIN을 부르기도 했다고 합니다. ☆ Say Anything ☆ 국내에서는 X JAPAN의 활동 당시만 하더라도 일본 문화 수입을 금하고 있었던 사정도 있고 해서 소수의 팬들에 의해 불법 수입되었습니다. (저도 복사판 CD로 콘서트를 봤으니깐요) 이 때문에 X의 노래를 듣는 것에서 우월감을 느끼곤 했던 사람들이 있었습니다. 지금에야 일본 문화 개방이 이루어져서 X JAPAN의 음악을 듣는 것이 그리 어렵지 않은 일이 되었고 X JAPAN의 인기 자체도 식은 감이 있어서 그런 사람은 거의 없는 듯 하지만 한국 X JAPAN 팬덤의 흑역사인것은 분명한듯 하네요.
