Musical Musings: New on my Playlist
I might have finished my musical A to Z journey last week but that doesn’t mean no more music on the blog – no sirrah!
I’m actually excited this week as I get to feature two new songs that I actually like – something that doesn’t happen all that often these days. I usually feel like an old woman, lamenting the substandard songs of nowadays and remembering with fondness the music of my youth…
It doesn’t help that I no longer listen to the young and hip stations as they are seriously painful. It seems like the same songs are played over and over and, yes I’m going to say it, they all sound the same.
Old fogey right here!
But I have found some treasure in the midst of the mediocre. I’m featuring tracks from two of the hottest acts around right now – Bruno Mars and Chris Brown – and they seriously groove.
I’m not a fan of everything either of them have ever done but I do seriously enjoy these offerings – possibly because they both hark back to the sort of music that I revere! Full of R&B vibes and soulful grooves – just the way I like it.
Chris Brown – Fine China
This reminds me of classic R&B with elements of Michael Jackson and 80’s grooves thrown in – very easy to listen to!
Bruno Mars – Treasure
Even the video clip harks back to the disco hits of the 70s – I absolutely love this track, it’s gold!
Do you have any recommendations when it comes to new music?
And have you found yourself drifting away from mainstream as you grow older? Or am I the only old fogey around here????
