So it has been a long time since I have put a post on here, but a lot has happened since then, I have finally finished college, and in 3 weeks I am leaving the country to go to America for 2 months to learn how to be a missionary and learn Portuguese so I can proselyte to the people of Cape Verde for 2 years! I am so excited, I am going to have the time of my life, so me being in love with music, I wanted to know what sort of music they listened to in Cape Verde, so I did a bit of research and this is what I found…
So yeah I know, valentines has been and gone, but that’s no excuse to not express yourself to that special woman through music. So I thought I would compile a small list of songs to help you, now these I will admit will be rock songs, (because I just love rock!) but its all about the lyrics! 🙂
So number one is Always by Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi always (no pun intended ;)) generally write songs based on love, this is one of the best ones I think they did. Sweet lyrics, an awesome guitar solo, what more could the woman want! 😉
The next is by Guns N Roses and its called Think about you. Even the title is lovely 😛 with this you get the beautiful lyrics, plus a solo from Slash, (who, in my reckoning is one of the greatest guitarists) what a great package! Great song as always by Guns n Roses. Enjoy 🙂
Now, this next song, I had to include. A song which should be familiar to anyone, no matter what kind of music they listen too. This next song is by Aerosmith, I don’t wanna miss a thing. Just a beautiful song 🙂
This next song is by a band which has been around for a long time, a band which I really love. The Rolling Stones, and the song is Loving Cup. I really like the lyrics of this song, and its simplicity. A great song, check it out! 🙂
Now this next song I just had to put in because its amazing! Maybe a little too ‘rocky’ but i’m putting it in nonetheless. This is Led Zeppelin Whole lotta love. Those who used to watch Top of the Pops may recognise this song too. Plus Robert Plant just has a beautiful voice! And the solo is epic! 😛
Post any other suggestions you have. I hope these songs will help to express yourself, or I hope you just enjoy them as much I do! Have a nice day! 🙂
I WANNA ROCK!!! 😀 yeah, this band may have some dress issues… But the music they produce is very good, a nice little simple guitar solo which sounds really good, a good guitar solo isnt necessarily the fastest or the most complex, but the ones that just fit really well with the style of the song, that just sound good in general 🙂 so enough blabbing lets get to the rock!! 😀
As I wrote this post another song comes to mind, something else I wanna do… This is by another band who have a strange dress sense.. This is Kiss, I wanna rock N roll all night!
So its 2012, supposedly the year the world will end because the Mayans calender stopped at this year.. Well whether you believe it or not, here is a few ‘end of the world songs’.
Apocolypse Please by Muse is a good song to listen to whilst armageddon is raining from the sky.
So by now the people are screaming in the streets shouting ‘Its the end of the world!!’ and the next song comes on, R.E.M. Its the end of the world as we know it.
In the distance you see giant mushroom clouds, and the next song on the playlist is by Pink Floyd called Mother.
You hear gun shots in the distance, and the next song Gimme Shelter by The Rolling Stones portrays exactly what the end of the world could look like.
Planes are flying over head now raining hell around you, but your still just chilling listening to your ‘End of the world’ playlist, and next to come on is Until the end of the world by U2.
You hear gun shots all around your house now, and a bomb screaming down near you, but its all good because you’ve got one more song on your playlist. The End by The Doors.
I hope the world doesn’t end this year, because that would absolutely suck! If it does, it was nice knowing you, have a nice day. 🙂
Steven Tyler is the lead singer of Aerosmith, the band that gave you ‘Dude Looks Like a Lady’ and ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing’. The big mouth must do something as he has a fantastic voice! He also has quite the signature scream. Great guy and a great band, i definitely recommend them! 🙂
So recently I have really been getting into Brandon Flowers and The Killers. One song imparticular really struck me as being really good, that’s Crossfire by Brandon Flowers. There’s something about it that makes me want to keep repeating the song, whenever I go on youtube I seem to type this song in first. Anyways I hope you enjoy it 🙂
