What Makes New Age Music Interesting? – Some Amazing Facts I bet you did not Know
Image via unsplash What sort of music do you listen to when you are meditating, practising yoga or lulling yourself to sleep? Here are a few interesting facts about New Age Music that may take you by surprise. After all, new-age music may not be as boring as you think it is. What is the hype about? Image via unsplash Harping on mindfulness and trancelike relaxation, new-age music replaces tacit or unexpressed vocals with acoustical instruments, electrical synthesizers ad sounds of nature. This genre of music is also considered as not embracing intricate harmonies and tempos like classical, pop or rock genres of music. Therefore, the chances of you being able to tilt your head and tap your feet to new-age music are next to zero. The salient feature of the new-age music Image via unsplash There are ample new-age music recordings that capture sounds of nature be it the sound of waves, birds, whales or rain. Since new-age music tends to be static with a few harmonic alterations, this type of music is also popular amidst meditation and yoga sessions. This genre of music can be composed with both acoustical instruments as well as synthesizers. While new-age artists like Lasos and George Winston are renowned for using acoustic instruments, those like Engima rose to fame with synthesizers. New age music vs. Ambient Music Image via wikimediacommons As suggested by some of the best music blogs, ambient music tends to focus more on creating an atmosphere, an image or a mood whereas new age is more inclined towards spirituality, optimism and tranquillity. Therefore, you would often consider new age music excellent background music during yoga or meditation. This type of music also has recurrent melodies that create a mesmerizing feeling as opposed to ambient music that envelopes the timbral characteristics of sounds. Listening to Yanni would enlighten you better on what new age music entails while Brian Eno would be a good pick for you to get a grip on ambient music. New Age vs. New wave- is it the same? Image via unsplash Except for the fact that new age music and new wave musical styles both rose to fame in the early to mid-1980s, the genres do not resonate any similar characteristics. New wave music is not a representation of the spiritual movement brought forth by the new age music and is more an offset of punk rock.

Hi!!! Ok so this is the second half of my "Asian Pop Playlist" if you haven't seen the first part you can check it out here....if you want to! ^^ Alright lets get started!!! GJ - Want to Say This song is from the Taiwanese drama "Murphy's Law of Love." I totally recommend this to all drama fans. I normally only watch K-dramas, but this one has been so refreshing! I'm enjoying it so freakin much!!! You can watch it HD and subbed on DramaCool Bii - I'm Still Missing You As I have mentioned in my previous card, I totally love this guys voice!!! <3 Isaac 365 - LỖI ĐỊNH MỆNH (Ngày Nảy Ngày Nay OST) I might have a slight obsession with V-Pop, Isaac is one of the reasons why lol :P His voice in this song is totally DAE to the BAK!!! Will 365 - Sexy Lady One of the other reasons I love V-Pop is this guy, this song is so FUN!!! I recommend it for all your dance parties \(^O^)/ (a.k.a me in the garage with Matty XD @MattK95 !) MIN from ST.319 - Lost (Feat. MR.A) Yes this is more V-Pop, I love it okay... No judging ^-^ This song is totally catchy, I had to beg @MattK95 to not use this on his playlist, so that I could use it, thanks for not using it Matty *\(^-^)/* <3... why was I begging... I found this song first... (O_O#) Della Wu - Palm (Warrior Lan Ling OST) LOVE this!!! Does anyone want to walk in wherever the hell it is that she is walking, wearing that pink dress thingy with cherry blossoms raining down around you??? \(0.0) [Alexandros] - Famous Day I am a fan of these guys :D They have a completely unique sound, and the encouraging messages they use in their lyrics sometimes!!! Da Mouth - Funky (Feat. Pauline Lan) FUNKY~~~! I don't know if you know this or not, but rollerskating is actually not a simple task... (I'm not talking about rollerblading here) So shout out to the girl in this for making it look so easy and awesome! The older lady in this seems a little bit like the Asian Madonna XD Still a great song though^^ I added the dance version incase anyone wants to learn it, cause it's actually awesome, and not as easy as it looks... Yes, I have tried it :3 Da Mouth - Loser Despite what you might be thinking this was actually filmed this year... They just wanted to make it look like it was from way back when lol Hello legwarmers!!! lol. actually my Mom was wearing a pair when she first met my Dad, she was doing the dishes, cute right?! XD I feel I should also mention that their new album is called "Back to the Future" which is the reason both this song and "Funky" have such an older feel to them :) I still completely love it though ^^ Isaac - Mr. Right This MV just came out yesterday, and because you can never have enough Isaac in your life, I thought I'd share it... You can tell by now I'm a fangirl over him can't you... anyway... this song makes me want to put glitter on speakers, and dance around. Pretty simple dance, or at least it sort of has an "I'm too cool to waste a lot of energy on this" feel to it, but I still havent mastered it yet... I can assure you that I will though ^^ Hey Matty I know you are jealous that I got to add this to my playlist... you should have waited for it to come out lol... in your face! (Sisterly love XD) but seriously sucked in :P Credit to the owners of all these MVs and Photos. (I DO NOT own any of these MVs or photos!) Thanks for reading and listening Bye Bye Chu~ XOXO
Mac Sabbath: The McDonald's Metal Band Of Your Nightmares
Just when you thought Ronald McDonald was as scary as clowns got, in comes Ronald Osbourne. From the poofy red wig and the yellow gloves, he's got all the fast food joint's iconic colors in place; however, something sinister boils beneath the surface. This is Mac Sabbath, a Black Sabbath cover band that combines all things Prince of Darkness with ketchup, mayo, and the occasional sweet and sour dipping sauce. And in this gig, Ronald Osbourne is the fast food world's Prince of Darkness equivalent. Needless to say, you should be scared. Very scared. And instead of 'Iron Man', their signature song is 'Frying Pan', which equal parts mocks the quality of fast food and the health of the people who eat it a little too frequently. Oh, and you've got to see Ronald's bandmates. There's Slayer MacCheeze, Grimalice, and Catburglar, who looks a whole lot like Peter Criss from the original KISS line-up. And just like the original Black Sabbath, Ronald and the crew are just as notorious for their extreme stage antics. After attending their concert last summer, music journalist Jake Manson observed a move pulled right out of the Ozzy Osbourne handbook: "The highlight came when Ronald reached into his takeout bag, pulled out a hamburger with bat wings, and took a massive bite out of it." So what do you guys think about Mac Sabbath? Have you seen any clown rock this hard? Let me know if you'd be down to see Mac Sabbath live in concert in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection.
프레디가 브라이언을 생각하며 만든 곡
어느날 스튜디오에 들어온 프레디가 브리에게 "널 생각하며 만들어봤어." 라며 들려준 노래.  Queen - Soul Brother (Under pessure sigle b-side) God bless my soul here he comes now The man with the most how does he do it? Sure he's got style he's so heavy He's a trip can do anything Anything anything He's my soul brother He's my best friend he's my champion And he will rock you rock you rock you 'Cause he's the saviour of the universe He can make you keep yourself alive Make yourself alive Ooh brother cause he's somebody somebody He can love He's my soul brother Whan you're under pressure feeling under pressure Yeah pressure yeah pressure He won't let you down Whan you're under pressure Oh feeling under pressure yeah pressure So he won't let you down He won't he won't he won't let you down He can do anything anything anything He's my soul brother Yea ah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Ooh soul brother anything (soul brother) Anything (soul brother) anything (soul brother) He's my soul brother brother brother brother brother Anything (soul brother) anything (soul brother) He's my soul brother Soul brother he can do anything He can do anything 'Cause he's my soul brother 프레디에게 브라이언은 ...  내 영혼에 내린 신의 축복 그는 스타일이 확고하고 진중한 사람.  그는 내 최고의 친구. 나의 챔피언.  그는 널 흔들어 놓을거야.  그는 우주의 구원자거든. 그는 인생을 즐기게 만들어주지. 그는 누구든 사랑할 수 있는 사람이니까. 압박감에 시달릴 땐 그가 일으켜줄거야.  그는 뭐든지 할 수 있어.  그는 내 영혼의 형제니까...  브라이언이 천체물리학자라는 걸 자랑스러워해서 보랩에도 "갈릴레오"를 넣어줬던 프레디는  이 노래에서도 브라이언을 우주의 구원자로 은유하고.  브라이언이 작곡한 keep yourself alive 와 we will rock you 도  인용하면서 그의 작품에 대한 존경심을 표현하고 있어요. 섬세하고 스윗한 사람. 그렇다면 브리에게 프레디는?? 영감을 주는 뮤즈이자 페르소나 그 자체. 브라이언이 만든 노래의 거의 대부분은 프레디를 위해 만든 곡.  작곡을 할 때 브라이언은 습관적으로 프레디가 무대 위에서 노래 부르는 모습을 생각하면서 프레디를 위한 곡을 만들게 되었다고 밝힌 적이 있어요.  프레디가 떠난 후 브라이언은..  프레디와 함께 전세계 콘서트장을 누비던 프레디의 피아노를 자신의 집 거실에 가져다 놓았어요. 그 누구도 흉내낼 수 없는 자신만의 방식으로 피아노를 연주하던 오랜 친구를 추억하기 위해.. "나는 지금도 항상 프레디를 생각한다. 단 하루도 프레디를 생각하지 않는 날이 없다. 프레디가 떠났을 때는 너무 고통스러워서 그에 대한 말조차 꺼낼 수 없었다. 하지만 이제 그는 삶의 일부분이 되었다. 지금도 때론 프레디를 생각하면 눈물이 나지만, 대부분 그의 존재는 내게 큰 기쁨이다." (2011, 브라이언 메이)  관심좀 주세요.. 귀찮으실까봐 댓글 달아달라고 못하는데 클립과 하트 정말 좋아해요...♥
