respect the singer

okay but the reason I love when seventeen cover a girl group song is the respect. like all these other male idols always go out of their way to be “funny” and m o c k girl groups, wearing bad wigs, dresses, being overly dramatic and cute and singing really high pitched. some even half-ass the performance just to put up a “show”. but seventeen take their girl group covers seriously, they do it just as they would had it been a male group song they were singing, they do it with respect of the original singers, and I think that’s how it should be.

ΑΝΑΤΡΙΧΙΑΣΑ..!😳
ΕΙΜΑΙ στο φέρετρο τώρα.. Δεν βλέπω τίποτα όλα ειναι σκοτινά. Η φωνή μου δεν ακούγεται! Επεξεργάζομαι τα τραγούδια μου,με το μυαλό μου,δεν μπορώ να μιλήσω.. Δεν θέλω άλλο να κοιμηθώ.. Ξύπνησα! Ουφ,έχω άγχος. Τι θα τους πω;πως θα δικαιολογηθώ για την χθεσινή πρόβα..; Με πήρε ο ύπνος θα πω! Στην μάνα μου τι θα πω; Στα αδέρφια μου; Στον πατέρα μου; Κάτι θα βρω.. Θα σκεφτώ.. Δεν με βλέπουν.. Σηκώθηκα άνοιξα το φέρετρο.. Να μην με πάρουν χαμπάρι,δεν θα με αφήσουν να φύγω.. Βγήκα έξω,που είμαι; Στην Βουλιαγμένη,στην στροφή.. Αυτός είμαι εγώ.. Με αγαπατε τελικά ε; Τώρα με αγαπάτε όλοι.. Δεν πειράζει,έτσι είναι οι άνθρωποι.. Τοσα λουλούδια για μένα; Σας αγαπάω αδερφια μου αλλά είμαι καλά αλήθεια! Προχωράω για το σπίτι.. Μπένω μέσα.. Μαμά.. Μανούλα.. Γλυκιά μου μαμα! Γιατί δεν μου μιλάει; Μαμά με ακούς; Γύρισα.. Είμαι εδώ.. . Μην κλαις άλλο μάνα. . “Αθηνάαα να να να να,ήρθες και έβαλες στα βραδιά μου φωτιάαα ” Θυμάσαι μάνα; Μπαμπά; Κλαις και εσύ; Σου μιλάω ρε πατέρα απαντά μου.. Συγνώμη.. Μάλλον δεν θα θέλουν να μου μιλήσουν για ότι έκανα! Πάω μέσα βλέπω πολύ κόσμο.. Γιατι τόσος κοσμος; Μικρέ; Τριαντάφυλλε και εσείς εδω αδερφια μου; Ουτε εσείς μου μιλάτε; Γιατι κλαίτε; .. Συγνώμη.. Κοιτάω στο κρεβάτι.. Μα πως.. Αυτός είμαι εγώ.. Είμαι καλά σας λέω.. Το σώμα μου γιατί είναι εκεί. . Τι συμβαίνει..; Γιατι είμαι κατασπρος; Πάω στη ντουλαπα βγάζω τα ρούχα μου,ντύνομαι.. ετοιμαζάμαι περνώ μια ανάσα και αρχίζω για το κέντρο.. Είναι κλειστό.. Μα γιατί; Βγάζω τα κλειδιά και το ανοίγω,μπένω μέσα.. Κανείς,μα η ώρα πέρασε.. Γιατί δεν έρχεστε; Ανεβαίνω στην σκηνή,μόνος ακόμα.. Ακούγοντε κόρνες και τα τραγούδια μου στο τέρμα.. Εε ελάτε ξεκιναω.. ΔΕΝ ΕΊΜΑΙ ΝΕΚΡΌΣ ΣΑΣ ΛΈΩ ΕΧΩ ΠΡΕΜΙΈΡΑ

“…I want to compliment Gongchan on doing a really good job. Gongchan completed the song. When BANAs listen to ‘Nightmare,’ I’m sure you will think this song is very nice. I thought that if we went too strong, fans might not have enjoyed it. I think Gongchan played a role in making the song harmonious. This is my favorite part, including the lyrics…the mood as well. He did a really good job.“

As someone who knows how unconfident Gongchan can sometimes be about his singing abilities, I live for moments when the other members show their appreciation for him.

It’s hard not to feel insecure when you are part of a group with so many talented and powerful vocalists. In any other group, Gongchan could have easily been written off as just another visual, but instead, the other B1A4 members show Gongchan a lot of respect as a singer, even though he definitely has room for improvement. 

I’m thankful that they are able to recognize his unique singing voice and find ways to properly utilize it. It also shows a lot of maturity and open-mindedness on their end. 

Basically, B1A4′s teamwork is amazing, and I can’t compliment them enough.

I feel like Amber fans really have not listened to Krystal sing, because she is very talented, I’m not even Krystal biased but I do have ears and a sense of decency to say that Krystal can sing extremely well to be given the lead singer title especially when they debuted Amber could barely sing in Korean. Respect both singers because they are both lovely talented girls and need us MeUs to unite and not fight over petty things. (anon)

Am I the only one who's not totally on the Beyonce train? I feel like she's kinda lost the plot. On the one hand, I respect her talents as a singer and I like her "girl power" ways. But especially tonight at the Grammys, she just seems very.. "god-like" and I feel like she's bought into her OWN image a little too much. Is that just me? Like, she knows she's not ACTUALLY a goddess, right?

I don’t know, I have to confess I’m not a fan. I like her music, but beyond that, and the fact that she was in Destiny’s Child, I know nothing about her. But even I realize that her image control is savvy, if not slightly terrifying (her and Taylor Swift are just…terrifying). Like, she took control of her fans’ adoration, and became a black goddess, and she’s untouchable but still she’s not afraid to point out the struggles of her race, and even make an unapologetic album about that experience, and remain commercially viable. And that’s just…wow….let’s study that.

New Moon ni Koishite (The Otome Mix)

Play

It’s almost the end of June, and there’s only 1 episode of Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3 left. To commemorate this season, I’ve created an ultimate mix of “New Moon ni Koishite,” the season’s opening theme! The Otome Mix combines the vocals of all 3 artistes of the song, Etsuko Yakushimaru, Mitsuko Horie, and Momoiro Clover Z, over the instrumental of Etsuko Yakushimaru’s version.

Back when we heard there would be 3 versions of the song, I theorised that the arrangements would be vastly different and would suit their respective singers. But this hasn’t quite been the case; arrangement-wise, each successive version has simply switched out a few instruments here and there. While Momoiro Clover Z’s version has an exciting beat, the synthesisers make the song feel a little “noisy.” So I’ve stuck to the simplest instrumental, and tried to make the vocal arrangement feel fresh and exciting!

Of course, this is by no means a professional-grade mix. There are a few stray instrument sounds from the vocal tracks I used, vocals might not match one another, and some of them might sound a little over-processed. But I hope it’s a fun listen, and a good way to remember the magic of Season 3.

I really have such respect for musicians and for singers because they’re so naked. Actors get to hide behind character, even though we’re really expressing ourselves, but people don’t tell that.“

He continued, “But musical performers are up there and it’s them. I have a guitar and this is the song I wrote, this is how I feel. But the power you have to make people feel good is extraordinary and that’s the reason why these performers are unstoppable.

As a Tom fan I know that he respects musicians especially after playing Hank but I know in my heart that he is talking about Taylor in some way.
