“God Forgives, I don’t” only touches the surface of Ross’ fight to triumph. Whenever I need inspiration to keep advancing, playing Rozay’s “Hold Me Back” on repeat is necessary. A gritty ballad made in the brain of man that might not have much to his name expressing through it all never let someone or something hold you back from your ambitions. The only problem I have with the album is the predictability of beat selection. Although the beats chosen for the project was suitable for the occasion when being a genuine Rick Ross admirer you tend to appreciate what sounds he loves to utilize and producers he shops with to fulfill his needs.
[pic] [pic] [pic] “Discuss how Guitar Highway Rose AND two other texts of your choosing portray the issue of being on the outside” Being or feeling on the outside is a very human thing, in fact it is probably one the most common feelings that anyone would feel. Being on the outside, or exclusion, occurs in many different ways. In society there is a certain stereotype that people seem to aspire to. Everyone in society these days wants to be successful and good looking. Being famous and rich is the reason we shun those few whom do not want to live by modern standards.
During the concert Luke Bryan played a lot of his hits, but there were a few that were chart toppers that he didn’t sing. At the end of the concert when he left the stage everyone start to scream and yell for more. People were going crazy not wanting the concert to end. After a few minutes Luke Bryan came back out on stage and started to sing a crowd pleaser which was a ballad called “Do I”. This song hit home to be because one of the first concerts my fiancée and I ever went to was for an artist that Luke Bryan opened up for.
Music Influence Music has been around since the beginning of time even though we do not see how music in the ancient world was even music. Since then music has gone through many stages where singers/songwriters relay messages through their music because of the world corruption and how it affects our lives. Music is a part of what society is whether its accepted or not, it can’t be gotten rid of. Music takes on the role of how the world is around us. Most people may not even realize it, but songwriters incorporate world events into the songs we hear every day.
I couldn’t dance. So I started to draw and to write.” As you can see, Silverstein wasn’t very good at the things that most boys or men were naturals at, so he turned to something that he did enjoy and began to progress at. Shel also learned to play the guitar and eventually wrote songs for big singers such as: Johnny Cash and Dr. Hook. In every area of art that Shel would do his style was so different and so unique. He states,” I was lucky that I didn’t have anyone to copy, be impressed by.
While this sounds like a great basis for a government, it would ultimately lead to a lot of their problems. Once everyone decided to demand equal wages, for unequal work, the framework was destined to collapse on itself. Other than this very basic blueprint of a republican government, there was no other real governing body of Brook Farm. While Ripley and his counterparts founding it and were in charge, they by no means sponsored totalitarianism or tyranny, nor did they run any sort of dictatorship. Everyone was free to come and go as they pleased, and most partakers did not even live on the acreage owned by the community.
In today’s society, artists and performers tend to shamelessly produce meaningless works for profit and notoriety, rather than creating something expressive and of personal value to themselves. It is very rare to find a musician who is as talented as he is modest. It is a contradiction in profession and personality such as performing arts and shyness that reveals the depth and pureness of an artist. From 1991 to 1997, singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley countered his flourishing fame and talent with a genuine demureness that followed him throughout his entire life. Because of this conflict between his career and his personality, Buckley never fell victim to fame, thus allowing him to excel musically and remain true to his roots.
Although his cause and motivation, raising awareness and donors for his bone marrow foundation was admirable his efforts were overshadowed by negative connotations associated with his music. Effectively, to be successful the artist is often forced to make compromises in their music, not only for the public but to fit the mold of what record labels expect to be financially successful. In Jay-z's Moment of Clarity, he writes," I dumb down for my audience and double my dollars, they criticize me for it yet they all yell holla- as rappers must decide what’s most important, and I can't help the poor if I’m one of them, so I got rich and gave back, to me that's the win-win". Nelly was effectively attempting to do the same.
Music is a unique and irreplaceable art form and it conveys and expresses beautiful emotions of people. Many people cherish various types and genres of music and consider it an important trait of their everyday life. Not everyone appreciates and loves the same type of music. I listen to rock because I get a sense of relaxation, it has a positive influence on me, and it tightens my connection with my friends, while I avoid listening to country music because I find it very depressing. Music, like any other art, is a way of relaxing after a person’s regular hard day at work.
I had heard reviews from this band from my friends, but I, myself, had expectations since I had never heard of this band. Everyone tells me what happens and how crazy they are but I did not fully understand what they meant until I went to this concert. Throughout the entire concert the band constantly surprised me with their production and made each song was better than the previous song. Each song seem to outdo the previous song that had just played. Overall this experience was one of the coolest things I have yet to experience.
