The other day in Soho.....I was walking around with two friends, enjoying the sun, talkin and sharing
some smiles, coffee and cookies. On Price we ran into these guys from Groundstone performing
on the street. We stopped to listen for a while....at some point I got to talk to the guys, next thing I
know, we are sharing a nice music moment.
It's so weird...everytime I see someone perform, I feel the urge to jump in and join. I can't help it, it
almost physically hurts, to stay in my seat when I see people on stage and I like what I see and hear.
It was an amazing feeling to just freestyle a bit with those talented guys, it felt so New York......
New York is growing on me. It's a trip.
The other day when I listened to my boys singing along to an RnB song,
I was kinda shocked when I realised that they know every fuckin note
from A-Z. Not only hook and verses but also aaaaall the adlibs.You
know...these nice seemingly improvised melodies,words,uuuhs and
ahhs that decorate the main lyrics and carry the emotion. So..I
wonder....can you tell the name of a song by only hearing the adlips?
No beat, no mainline, just the nice parts in the music that we like to
sing along to so much.
Can you ?
Artist: Missy Elliot
Adlibs taken from the hook
Songtitle contains 4 words
you'll find the correct answer HERE . DON'T CHEAT! =)
This was recorded a few weeks ago for a live radio concert.
I know that not all of you can understand the lyrics ,so I'll try to sum them up for you in really short.
The song is about trying to stop loving someone, because you know that he or she doesn't love you back anymore. Literally the author commands the one to give back his heart, because he knows and feels that he or she doesn't need it .So basically the song is about begging the one you really love to just leave, instead of keep on hurting you.
I can't translate it in the same beautiful way in that it's said in German language and believe me....writing songs about love in German and not making it sound cheesy (but real) ain't easy.
