Red – Taylor Swift

Posted: October 31, 2012 in MUSIC

                         For all Taylor Swift , country music and girlie songs lover Taylor Swift is here with her fourth studio album – RED.

     Taylor Swift is popularly known for her girliesh country songs of which most of are resembled to her life and she agrees that few have come from her personel dairy.

  This new album is called RED on title she said in a conference and i quote :

“All the different emotions that are written about on this album are all pretty much about the kind of tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years. All those emotions — spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that — in my mind, all those emotions are red. You know, there’s nothing in between. There’s nothing beige about any of those feelings.”

  Well i haven’t tried whole album yet but the pre-released single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” is surely impressive.In first time i found it bit weird and off the tone but bit more attention and video surely made it an eye candy song though the song is on break up its full of fun and craziness as if Taylor Swift is taking her break up too lightly.Well if you like Taylor Swift you will like this one as well if not then try to give it few chances it might change your mind.

Well don’t worry i will soon write on whole album and if you want to write you can comment as well.See You All ASAP!! 🙂

Happy Birthday #KATY PERRY!!

Posted: October 25, 2012 in MUSIC

   Hello again people today that is 25th October it is birthday of an American singer, songwriter, and actress Katy Perry.

        Katy Perry’s real name is Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson and she launched her first album with stage name Katy Hudson. Later on she changed her stage name to Katy Perry.

    Well first Katy Perry song that i heard was “California Girls” from the album Teenage Dream.Well though i didnot liked it very much but i became a fan of the video 😉 .

   Well so not good first impression on me atleast but the song that really made me her big fan was “E.T.” Feat Kenye West from her album Teenage Dream.The song was really amazing.The beats , the lyrics and esspecially her singing style i found it really sexy and calling.The video was even very good and rapping just gave the song enough boost to make it among Billboard top as well my favourite list.

   The song “Teenage Dream” from the album titled the same is also the one which made me intrested in Katy.Song was on youngsters,the young love and girls dreams.Lyrics and Katy’s lifefilled voice gave the song a new warm feel and everytime you listen your face will automatically smile 🙂

   Other Katy Perry songs that i like are “Hot n Cold” , “One That Got Away” , “Wide Awake” , “Last Friday Night” and amazingly beautiful “Firework”.

     “Firework” was one Katy Perry song that touched my emotional side.It is beautifully written and sung giving listeners a positive enery and moral support.I haven’t heard many songs with so much positive feel and such a beautiful message.Even the video is amazing and if you have seen it in “Madagascar 3” then there is no doubt that you definitely love this song.I have even heard my may friends  cried on watching the video for the first time.Now thats how a real musician carries her feelings to the audience.

   This were my favourite Katy Perry songs not a lot but all are really good enough to compensat for that.Other than siging and performing Katy also acts in Movies and TV series.but her biggest appearance was in movie “Part Of Me” which was documentary of her own life.
