Everyone does it. Don’t even try to deny. You get lost in a time lapse of pictures and links and all of a sudden you’ll look at the clock and you’ve successfully shot 45 minutes to hell. Well, in an attempt to make some use of my cyber day-dreaming, here is a small collection of some of the interesting music-related postings I’ve recently come across!
Now, I’ve never watched the X-Factor; I’m not really a fan of all those talent-based reality shows. But this video, I kid you not, gave me goosebumps from head to toe. I have so much admiration for this girl- just the sheer talent she possesses at that age is mind-blowing. Check it out for yourselves, and prepare to be blown away.
As a fan of both Adam Levine and Alicia Keys, his cover of “If I Ain’t Got You” just makes sense. An unquestionable good listen.
The fact that both of these videos were recorded live just adds to the awesomeness. There’s nothing like actual, raw vocal talent in a time when not only is it easy to modify/auto-tune voices, but a lot of the music is electronic itself.
On an unrelated note, the VH1 Top 20 Countdown is a gold mine for popular new music videos. If there’s any you haven’t seen, get on it! A lot of these are prettyyy sweet. My recommendation? Blood Pressure. Uniquely entertaining 🙂
Have an awesome Friday night everyone!
