Do you know what the Diva’s Division needs?

Aside from the very clear answer of good storylines and defined characters, they need something else.

Better storytellers.

Obviously, that means they need to be given more time to tell those stories, but they need to have people that can really get on the mic and dish it out. Amazing promos. The occasional functional commentary, where they really dive into their opponent or the people in the ring rather than how amazing they are and other trivial things. They need more than just “I hate this person” or “she can’t beat me”. We need girls that will get out there in vignettes and promos and make us believe in what they’re doing. Use their words to make us love them, or hate them. Make us excited for the next match, make us get behind them.

We also need better storylines, obviously, and better feuds that make more sense, but also great alliances, ones that last for awhile. Factions. Friendships that last more than a few days. None of this frenemie bullshit. Sisterhoods. Girls that band together. Clear heels, clear faces. Girls that help each other out. Girls that stand for, or against, something other than just shitty mean girl, back stabbing stuff that has been going on.

We saw a good bit of what a Diva can do in Naomi’s heel turn. She did what she did, and then she cut promos about it. She’s made it clear that it isn’t about the women she’s going after, it’s about herself and how she’s been overlooked. She’s a heel because she was walked all over. THAT is AWESOME. The issue is, as pointed out in another post, we don’t have clear faces, and everything else is so wishy washy. 

We need more than one feud going on. We need more alliances. We need valets and managers that cut promos for the girls that can’t really do it on the mic. We need things to bring some of the girls together. And, as always, we need better storylines for them. And we need to stop pretending that the guys and girls don’t exist in the same universe, other than when Natty is with Tyson and Cesaro or when Naomi was with The Usos or the occasion time it’s mentioned that Brie is married to Daniel. And I don’t mean for romances. Just friendships, helping each other out, awesome intergender tag team matches. And hell, give us an intergender tag team division! ON THAT NOTE, give us MORE belts for the ladies. Bring back the Women’s Championship. Give THEM a Tag Team Title.  Give them more to do.

Bring that all together, and we’ll have one badass Diva’s division.

The Queen King, Carole

The first song which I ever heard by Carole King was “Anyone at All” which was an OST of my all time favorite “You’ve Got Mail”. Yes, the one with Meg Ryan and the Man from the video of Carly Rae Jepsen “I Really Really Like You”.

I guess I was 17-18 and didn’t found Carole King’s voice very pure, and her singing style very easy-going. I really didn’t know that that song was sung by a woman who was 56 (back in 1998 when the movie came out).

In 2011, I remember clicking a song called “Fire and Rain” by James Taylor which was shared by Per Gessle on Roxette Official. I found that song really nice.

I really didn’t know properly who Carole King was till 2013 when I heard many catchy numbers from the 60s and found out that they have been written by Carole King. 

After hearing a few more songs, I came across a song called “You’ve Got a Friend” by James Taylor. Got a little into in and saw Carole King’s name in it again. 

“She is marvelous, she is absolutely a legend who is not credited a lot in the current music situation. She really is one of a kind for writing so many hits. Yes, not a lot of women back then were able to write/co-write so many #1s” I thought to myself. 

It was then I told myself that I have to listen to her songs in a little detail.

I added her name 2 years back in the list and finally today, I heard 25+ songs written and sung by her. (Half of them I already knew, yayyy). 

(Yes, I’ll relate her to Roxette and Gessle, don’t worry).

Carole King had the best song writing partnership with Gerry Groffin (Groffin-King) who i’d say is as amazing as Lennon-McCartney.

In 1963, John Lennon was quoted as saying that he wanted Paul McCartney and himself to become “the Goffin-King of England  - Wikipedia

There was something in her songs which has the ability to attract. Yes, that something was the simplicity.

They are to-the-point, story-like, everyday-like with the sweetest most simplest melodies, far away from complexities.  

Please read the line above again?

Who else write such songs?

What? Eminem? 


Lady Gaga?

Oh come on!!

P-E-R G-E-S-S-L-E.

Each and every song in Carole King’s album reminded me of Gessle and his songwriting skill. 

Keep it simple.

It is just like no matter how many 5 Star Restaurants we go to, we’ll ultimately love Bread and Butter and Cheese the most. 

Music has the same rule, one will ultimately love a simple song. 

Found this little tribute note by Gessle from last year when Gerry Groffin died:

A fantastic lyricist and co-writer to so many of our favourite songs has passed away. Here’s a few that you know by heart: DON’T BRING ME DOWN (Check it out w/ The Animals + Tom Petty) - WILL YOU LOVE ME TOMORROW? - GOIN’ BACK (Check it out w/ Dusty Springfield + The Byrds) - TAKE GOOD CARE OF MY BABY - I’M INTO SOMETHING GOOD - A NATURAL WOMAN (Aretha F.) - THE LOCOMOTION. And if you’re slightly younger than me you probably love SAVING ALL MY LOVE FOR YOU with Whitney Houston as well. All Gerry’s work. Most of the time together with Carole King. Gerry = One of the best! Thanx. /P.

So yeah, Carole King has contributed in the music Gessle has grew up with and probably has been inspired too. 

Carole King - So rightly named “Carole”.

Love and Peace
