Welcome to this Months feature! Now, January is a time when it is the start of something new and everything fresh! With that means that people are always on the lookout for new music! Well, this feature may not bring you a lot of new music but it will welcome you into my world! Music is a huge part of my life – if i am not listening to it, i am playing my guitar or keyboard or even writing a post for this site (Off The Record).
So to start off 2018 I wanted to write about a topic I love and I came across this daily challenge so I thought why not turn it into an article! So here we go! Lets start with the first in this monthly feature – Lost in Music (You probably have that song stuck in your head now its by Sister Sledge).
A Song that makes you angry: Dancing On My Own – Calum Scott
There isn’t much music that makes me mad and I tend to try and listen to new music that i hear with good intentions and spirits. However, when someone does a cover of a song that is a poor version of the original song, well that really bugs me and irritates me.
A couple of years ago everyone was raving about a song by Calum Scott saying how amazing it was. So, after many recommendations I sat down and listened to the said song and it made me so mad. It was a cover of a song I really liked by Robyn and the version that he had done completely and utterly changed the original into a really depressing indie type song.
The original song became a hit in 2010 and even though the lyrics are about a break up the music, tempo and style of song was very upbeat and very enjoyable to listen to. I think at the time, it was on a television show I was watching and I became addicted to it. It was about a good year or so after that Calum Scott released his version and right from the start I was not a fan and I am still not.
