David Bowie passed away at age 69 on January 10, 2016 after battling cancer for 18 months. His final music video Lazarus was a final bow and his final gift to all his fans describing his battles and his final days. You can view the video below:
I was listening to Adele's song - Hello. The song was so catchy that several people on Youtube created cover songs. Below is one of the songs I've enjoyed on Youtube from a band called TeraBrite.
I definitely enjoyed the lyrics and did a search on Google to find out what the meaning behind the song was. It turns out, the song was about Adele reconnecting with herself. This song is very beautiful with its melody and baselines. I also enjoyed Jonathan Young's version as well.
After reading an article from Music.Mic, the song makes sense as it was about how Adele reconnected with herself after stepping out of the spotlight for awhile. The song is powerful and moving. You can feel her emotions especially during the chorus.
Overall, I think this song is powerful one as we can all relate to it to some degree. Sometimes we find ourselves lost and we need to reconnect with who we are. This song is a perfect reminder of that for anyone who lost their way and needed some sort of light to guide them back to being themselves again after going through some sort of bad event in their life and trying to get back on their feet again.
This past Sunday, I had the opportunity of attending a performance by local rock band from Queens, New York, Winds & Walls. The band's website is currently under construction. I'm currently working with Omar Feliciano, the band's rhythm guitarist to get the site up and running at windswalls.com I grew up going to high school with the band's rhythm guitarist, Omar Feliciano. We use to learn guitar together and eventually, he ended up going full speed with his music aspirations while working as a research assistant during the day at a local college.
Overall, the band's music reminds many of us who grew up in the 2000's of the alternative, punk rock style type of sound. The music video of their latest single, Hindsight is amazing. Professionally done and definitely great vocals from lead singer Rosie Posadas.
Below is their video "Hindsight" from Youtube.
