Boys bands… again!

WestlifeBut what else could I post after an extremely manly post like the last one? I had no other choice…
I bring you back again the deceased Westlife, with an extremely beautiful song that I just discovered this week. Have a nice weekend! 🙂

Sorry for any inconvenience – part II

Amélie PoulainYou were tired of normal songs, with sometimes good lyrics and even good music? So this is the right post for you!
I think once in a while our readers (listeners) should have the privelege of hearing an extremely ordinary song, but cheerful at the same time. I have brought Bloodhound Gang and Afroman to the blog, and this time I’m going show you a new venture of Pitbull and Akon, which I must admit is a catchy song.

Disclaimer: the song below is not very decorous, so I advise you not listen to it if you are not a great fan of listening to obscenities. Otherwise, listen to it as much as you want!

Believe in love!

ScorpionsNice title, don’t you think? Not an original idea, though. I stole it from the Scorpions‘ song that I’m going to post here today (sorry for spoiling :P).

Don’t know if I told you so before, but I am a huge Scorpions fan. Many of their songs are among my all-time favourites, I’ve seen them live twice (too bad I was young enough and a pop-listener when they recorded their Acoustica in Portugal). And although I do not know all their discography, I find myself constantly finding new amazing songs among their albums.

The last one was “Believe in Love“, a typical simple Scorpions song that I find quite powerful and soulful. Hope you like it too and that you keep believing in love, because it’s usually worth it 🙂 Have a nice weekend! 😉

Animal Instinct

Music is undoubtedly one of the best ways to express feelings (and perhaps even to actually feel feelings, if you pardon me the pleonasm). Songs, bring you reminiscences, ideas, they arouse feelings, etc. That’s why no two people have the same musical taste – as different human beings, we have different emotions and we express them in different ways.

One basic emotion that we have (sorry if you’re a prudish person) is sex. And song-writers and musicians have of course not ignored this feeling, writing about it many and many times.

From the funny and cheerful Inner Circle‘s Sweat (A La La Long) to the melodic and “begging” Rolling StonesBeast of Burden, going through the quite explicit nr. 1 Staple SingersLet’s Do It Again or the recent Kings of Leon Sex on Fire, you can see that there is a great amount of good songs on the topic (there are some not so good songs, either).

But regarding the topic I have two that I really like and that I hope you’ll like to, as this is what I bring you today.

Let’s start with Ben Harper‘s cover of Marvin Gaye‘s (perhaps the king of this subject, with songs like You Sure Love to Ball and Let’s Get It On):

And I finish with a song that, despite not being as explicit as the previous ones (or even explicit at all), is sung in a very sexual way, in my opinion. This is probably my Led Zeppelin‘s favourite song, D’yer Mak’er (by the way, if you did not read the wikipedia article, the title is pronounced almost like “Jamaica”):

PS – well, I thought that the post was completed, but then I remembered this song and I had to leave it here, as it is perhaps the most explicit sexual songs that I know. So much that it was banned in our country (Portugal), as well as in many other,  and quite criticized by the Vatican.

PPS – Sorry if I misled you into thinking that this post would be about The Cranberries, but I remembered the name of their song and I thought it would be a good title for this post (I promise I’ll make it up to you later, Cranberries fans, and I’ll make a post about them 😉 ).
