Lily Allen – Sheezus (Cover Album)

I thought she was retiring, focusing on her marriage life. So sad when I hear the news. I like her voice characteristic, and the way she sang her song, like in the LDN, Smile, and The Fear.

About 2 weeks ago she released her third album, Sheezus. From her twitter account I knew that she’s working on her next album, I just didn’t expect it to come this soon. More over, she already released some single prior to the album release. It’s a shame for me to not know about it.

After getting the album and without knowing which song is the single I played the track all day. Unfortunately, I get the clean version. Lily Allen use so many words that get censored. It’s very annoying to hear it.After hearing several time I choose Hard Out ThereSheezus, and URL Badman as my favorites. Apparently, the first two is her single.

A couple days ago, Lily Allen announced the Deluxe version. This time I make sure that I get the unclean version of it. She add 4 new song in her Deluxe Album. And after hearing it, I add Wind Your Neck In as my favorite.

I want to include Hard Out There music video, but it contain too many inappropriate content for underage. So instead I’ll post the Sheezus music video.

Twenty One Pilots – Vessel

Twenty One Pilots – Vessel (cover album)

Lately I’ve been listening to this band, Twenty One Pilots. The first time I saw their performance is at MTV Movie Awards 2014, performing their single “Car Radio”. I instantly fell in love with the song. The main reason is because Tyler Joseph (the vocalist) is rapping the lyrics.

Then I searched in youtube Twenty One Pilots other single. I listened to “House of Gold” and I like it too. This band suit my music taste. I decided to get the entire album, Vessel. As usual, I listen from the first track o the last. The album start with song that have strong beat, like “Ode to Sleep”, “Holding on to You”, and “Car Radio”, and then the later have slow beat, like “Trees” and “Truce”. The song is like a poetry, because it rhyme. According to wiki, Tyler write the poetry, and when the poetry is too long, he start rapping to fit the lyrics in.

There’s no good copy for Twenty One Pilots performance in MTV Movie Awards 2014 in youtube, so instead i’ll present you the Official Music Video (in case you’re interested too).

Eminem – The Marshall Mathers LP 2

The Marshall Mathers LP 2

 

EMINEM is back!!!!!

Three years after Recovery (2010), Eminem is back with his new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (2013). The number ‘2’ means that this album is the sequel of his previous album The Marshall Mathers LP (2000). You can tell that it is a sequel after hearing the first song in the album, Bad Guy.

Bad Guy is the sequel of the song Stan from the previous album. Stan is a song about a fan who obsessed with Eminem. Stan is mad because Eminem never replied his letters, and felt ignored, later he kill himself and his pregnant wife by driving over a bridge. The first three verse delivered by Eminem who act as Stan, and the last verse delivered by Eminem which decided to write back to Stan but it was too late. In the sequel, Bad Guy, the first three verse delivered by Eminem who act as Mathhew Mitchell, and the last verse by Eminem. The story of the song take place years after the death of Stan. Matthew Mitchell, the little brother of Stan is older now, and wants revenge againts Eminem. Matthew think that Eminem took advantages from the death of his brother, made it into song, and gain fame from it, in other hand, Matthew suffer from it.

The first single from the album is Berzerk. The way Eminem sing in this song remind me of his rap style from his earlier albums. The next single is Survival which is used to promote Call of Duty: Ghosts. A week after that Eminem release his third single, Rap God. In this song Eminem call himself as Rap God, displaying his rap skill especially in the verse where he raps 97 words in 15 seconds (6.5 word/sec), calling it supersonic speed.  The fourth single is The Monster, featuring Rihanna. Eminem’s rap combined with Rihanna’s ballad makes a great song. Aside from The Monster, this album contains many “rap ballad” song e.g. Asshole (ft. Skylar Grey), Headlights (ft. Nate Ruess), and many others.

When I finally got this album, I listen to the song starting from the first to the end. Aside from the single which I have listened before, Stronger Than I Was is the first song that comes to my liking. The song uses the same format as Hailie’s Song, where Eminem sang slowly. Maybe I like this song because I can keep up with the tempo. Another thing to be noticed is the comeback of the “skit”, something that is missing from the Recovery album. The “skit” makes me feel closer to the albums story.

lagu untuk orang yang habis selingkuh

Gak sengaja terdengar lagu ini lagi, dari koleksi lagu lawas. Liriknya cocok banget buat cowok-cowok yang habis selingkuh dan akhirnya menyesal. Dinyanyikan sama rapper asal Bandung, Ebith Beat A. Hmm, kapan lagu rap berjaya lagi di belantika musik Indonesia.

Ebith Beat A ft Nunu – Cahaya Hidupku

Kemarin aku melupakannmu
Kemarin aku tak ingat kamu
Namun engkau tersenyum
Sucinya cintamu
Dan kini sampai akhir hidupku
Ku mohon jangan tinggalkan aku
Slalu dekat denganmu
Engkaulah sgalanya

Rasa sesal tak pernah datang di awal ketika
Ktika mata rasa dan kata sudah tak berguna
Teringat satu masa ketika ku terlupa
Terlupa akan cinta yang ada di dalam dadaku
Terpesona dengan wanita berbeda
Terpikat dengan sinar cahaya berbeda
Wanita lain yang belum tentu setia
Cahaya yang tidak akan bersinar lama
Tidak seperti sinarmu
Kau wanita pujaan hatiku
Malu ku mengakui kesalahanku padamu
Jujur hati ini tak bisa jujur
Kusiakan waktu berdua denganmu
Saat dimana tak bisa ku ganti dengan hatiku
Cinta yang tlah kau beri tak dapat terganti
Hanya dengan untaian kata maaf dari hati ini
Kau cahaya hidpuku

Kemarin aku melupakannmu
Kemarin aku tak ingat kamu
Namun engkau tersenyum
Sucinya cintamu
Dan kini sampai akhir hidupku
Ku mohon jangan tinggalkan aku
Slalu dekat denganmu
Engkaulah sgalanya

Aku adalah lelaki yang akan dibenci
Ketika ku sakiti hati wanita yang mengasihi
Dia beri hati ku balas dengan dusta
Dia beri cinta ku balas dengan luka
Aku terpesona dengan wanita berbeda
Terpikat dengan sinar cahaya berbeda
Wanita lain yang belum tentu setia
Cahaya yang tidak akan bersinar lama
Tidak seperti sinarmu
Kau wanita pujaan hatiku
Malu ku mengakui kesalahanku padamu
Jujur hati ini tak bisa jujur
Kusiakan waktu berdua denganmu
Saat dimana tak bisa ku ganti dengan hatiku
Cinta yang tlah kau beri tak dapat terganti
Hanya dengan untaian kata maaf dari hati ini
Kau cahaya hidpuku

Kemarin aku melupakannmu
Kemarin aku tak ingat kamu
Namun engkau tersenyum
Sucinya cintamu
Dan kini sampai akhir hidupku
Ku mohon jangan tinggalkan aku
Slalu dekat denganmu
Engkaulah sgalanya

what if

Alright let’s pretend Marshall Mathers never picked up a pen
Let’s pretend things would have been no different
Pretend he procrastinated had no motivation
Pretend he just made excuses that were so paper thin they could blow away with the wind
Marshall, you’re never gonna make it makes no sense to play the game there ain’t no way that you’ll win
Pretend he just stayed outside all day and played with his friends
Pretend he even had a friend to say was his friend
And it wasn’t time to move and schools weren’t changing again
He wasn’t socially awkward and just strange as a kid
He had a father and his mother wasn’t crazy as shit
And he never dreamed he could rip stadiums and just lazy as shit
Fuck a talent show in a gymnasium, bitch, you won’t amount to shit quit daydreaming kid
You need to get your cranium checked you thinking like an alien it just ain’t realistic
Now pretend they ain’t just make him angry with this shit and there was no one he could even aim when he’s pissed it
And his alarm went off to wake him off but he didn’t make it to the Rap Olympics
Slept through his plane and he missed it
He’s gon’ have a hard time explaining to Hailie and Lainie these food stamps and this WIC shit
Cause he never risked shit he hoped and he wished it but it didn’t fall in his lap so he ain’t even here
He pretends that ……
……

 

Eminem verse, from Airplane part 2, a song by B.O.B feat Hayley Williams and Eminem.

for someone, somewhere

 

“Maroon 5”
“Wipe Your Eyes”

I’m afraid that I gotta do what I gotta do
But if I let you go, where you gonna go?
We gotta make a change, time to turn the page
Something isn’t right, I don’t wanna fight you
We’ve been through tougher times, you know it gets worse
We can turn this around please let me be first
And as I feel your tears spilling on my shirt
Something isn’t right I don’t wanna fight you

[Chorus]
Hey you, come over and let me embrace you
I know that I’m causing you pain too
But remember if you need to cry
I’m here to wipe your eyes

Tonight before you fall asleep
I run my thumb across your cheek (across your cheek)
Cry ’cause I’m here to wipe your eyes
I know I made you feel this way
You gotta breathe, we’ll be okay (be okay)
Cry ’cause I’m here to wipe your eyes

Oh nah nah oh nah nah nah nah
’cause I’m here to wipe your eyes
Oh nah nah oh nah nah nah nah

When did we cross the line?
How could we forget?
Why do we let the pressure get into our heads?
Your broken heart requires all of my attention
’cause something isn’t right, I don’t wanna fight you

[Chorus]
Hey you, come over and let me embrace you
I know that I’m causing you pain too
But remember if you need to cry
I’m here to wipe your eyes

Tonight before you fall asleep
I run my thumb across your cheek (across your cheek)
Cry ’cause I’m here to wipe your eyes
I know I made you feel this way
You gotta breathe, we’ll be okay (be okay)
Cry ’cause I’m here to wipe your eyes

Please don’t lose your faith
Don’t worry ’cause I’m here to keep you safe
I promise if you let me see your face
That I won’t let you down
I won’t let you down
I’m here to wipe your eyes

Tonight before you fall asleep
I run my thumb across your cheek (across your cheek)
Cry ’cause I’m here to wipe your eyes
I know I made you feel this way
You gotta breathe, we’ll be okay (be okay)
Cry ’cause I’m here to wipe your eyes
