Punk

Peeking on a debut…

They are a post-punk revival band formed in 2008 who started by releasing two EP’s and later on, their first studio album ‘Passive Me, Aggressive You’,  a complete success in many ways. Their single ‘Young Blood’, which I posted earlier on, is probably the band’s most popular track and their debut, starting on New Zealand and soon, worldwide.

The following, is the third single from the album and like ‘Young Blood’, it has been featured on many shows and commercials…

The sound of the known…

Just discovered Nate Ruess from Fun, had another succesful band before becoming the kick ass singer of the song we all know as ‘We are young’. They were an indie, pop, alternative-folk band called The Format. His voice is just so distinct you recognize it the minute you listen to it…

Freshly baked…

Right from New Zealand, I bring you quite a recent band formed in 2008…

“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”

This girl has a talent and a voice many would want. There’s a raspiness in her sound that makes her unique and outshines whoever shares the stage with her. She appears on The Voice and two of the covers she sings from bands I love and admire, just blowed my mind!

Her name is Juliet Simms and she should definitely win this thing…

Farewell One Tree Hill…

How to say goodbye to nine years of something that has been there every step of the way. With its ups and downs, a story that has influenced so many lives. Surely it has made a difference in mine since as Lucas would say “Your art matters, that’s what brought me here”.

It seems like it was yesterday when this show started. I’m sure everyone remembers the first scene with Forty Foot Echo’s ‘Drift’ on the background. It took me just one episode to realize I would love that show and certainly, the music that came with it.

As I said on an earlier post, listening to Gavin Degraw’s ‘I don’t wanna be’ as the theme song gave me goosebumps cause it was just the perfect fit, and then listening to it again in this last episode gave me the same feeling but also, the feeling of nostalgia, remembering those past moments.

The talented cast and crew have made it possible to keep us watching, to make us laugh on the funny moments, to make us cry on the sad ones, and to make us enjoy and cherish every single moment of this story.

I thought of this post as a tribute to an amazing show and to give to those OTH fans something to hold on to, along with the memory already engraved.

I’m sure you’ll remember the story, the characters, the places and the words they used like what Lucas wrote about Peyton in his book, words like “Believe that dreams come true everyday, because they do” or “Make a wish and place it in your heart…do you have it? Good, now believe in it, with all your heart”.

I mean who doesn’t remember the famous Julius Caesar quote used over and over: “There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries…”

I could be talking about the show for hours but what can I say to all you fans that don’t already know. We’re glad this show was created and thank everyone on the team, specially those who above all, stayed throughout the whole journey.

Instead of posting every song featured in the last episode, I decided to choose some from the hundreds heard throughout the show:

The final words, the final song, the last goodbye…

 

Watching the cast singing this song all together was one of the best ways to close the show…

 

And some which really say One Tree Hill…

And many more…

Back to the 80’s with one of the best…

It’s difficult to categorize this band with one genre. They’ve gone from dark wave through new wave to post-punk and some electronic sound.

Although they started in the late 70’s, they became more and more famous with songs like ‘Just Like Heaven’ and ‘Lovesong’ in the 80’s, especially in the States.

With thirteen albums, ten EPs and quite a few singles, this band born in England has managed to build a huge music reputation, and become one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the world.

No matter how many years have gone by, they still keep going on and doing what they love and I’m sure it’s been a while since some of you listened to a song from these guys so come on, bring some nostalgia into your lives and remember what it was like…
