Boom Boom Pow!

Noticed all the Boom Boom Boom and Pow Pow Pow in songs?

Usher’s  OMG has pow pow pow and of course’s a part of it.  Rihanna’s Rude Boy got Boom Boom Boom which didn’t touch but he could have still influenced it considering how much he worked with Rihanna on her last album.

Is it too much Boom Boom Pow for you? And would you blame it on

Video Killed the Radio Star

The extent to how true “Video Killed the Radio Star” probably couldn’t be considered in 1979, the year the Buggles produced this song along with the first video shown on mtv. 

Its gotten to the point that the audio has become visual. An artist has to do a video in order to sell their songs.  A song without a video is now like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with no bread.  And of course in music videos people are not willing to look at ugly or fat so if the artist’s not hot, especially for women, their going to have a harder time making it which means we’re probably missing out on some good music because the percentage of beautiful people to not so beatiful is small. 

Its also gotten to the point that some songs just don’t sound good until the video is watched.  I didn’t really like Black Eyed Peas Boom Boom Pow until I watched the video.  I’ve liked it a lot since.  Lady Gaga’s paparazzi is the same for a lot of people from what I’ve heard.  Personally I liked the song ok and liked it a lot better after seeing the video.

Robbie Williams new album is Reality killed the video star. Thing is both are on video and both are scripted.  So can reality (shows) kill the video star? Although it does seem that lately more people are getting famous from reality (shows, youtube, etc) than through movies and non reality shows.  I hope reality doesn’t kill the video star cuz reality kind of sucks.

What do you think about video killing the radio star or reality killing the video star?

Spin that record DJ Hero

October 1, 2009 at 12:06 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , )

DJ Hero looks interesting, not as good as Guitar Hero but interesting.   Game play looks similar to guitar hero. Hit the right notes on time.  Thing is you’re mixing songs in this game.  The songs look good, but the mixes are going to carry the game.  If they aren’t good then the game won’t be either.  I’m hooked on the Guitar Hero franchise I  may get this when its used and cheap, but right know I’m not planning on it.  I’m still thinking about getting Guitar Hero 5, because I haven’t bought it yet.

If you played it what do you think?

The Ipod / mp3 format is taking over commercials and music videos with the appearance of touch screens.  The Black Eyed Pea’s futuristic vido for Boom Boom Pow has it.  So does this Zune commercial with Common which is music downloading site.  Problem with most of the commercials with this format is the lack of a face for the person talking.  Like how about this Hp commercial with Fergie or this one with Pharrell. There are also the Ipod touch commercials.  No faces.  😦

 Like seriously.  Where is Serena’s face?

What do you think about these commercials?

Fierce Swagger

April 11, 2009 at 4:42 pm (music, rant) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The words firece and swagger are being used abused everywhere.  Fierce was popular after Christian Siriano on Project Runway was seen using it, but I thought it went out afterwards.  Now its back “Fiercer” than ever with everyone thinking so and so is fierce.  I’m sorry but everyone is not fierce.  And swagger… after hearing Swagger like you I know you may feel compelled to used the word, but its not for EVERY situation.  And its popping up in songs like Black Eyed Peas new song  Boom Boom Pow.

So before you use the words fierce or swagger think is it really fierce or is that really swagger.
