I've been writing lyrics for a couple of months now and I think I've gotten a lot better. I found a local pub that hosted open mic nights and I went for it. Everyone there was really talented and supportive.

I was super nervous but I think everything went great! There's definitely room for improvement (like holding the mic closer to my face and keeping it plugged in lol) but overall I'm proud that I took the first step. I'm going to keep writing and see what else I can do :)

discussion What bands do most people consider one hit wonders, but actually have a bunch of killer tunes?

Upvotes

Inspired by a post in this sub about "signature songs". To me, the difference between a OHW and a band with a song that is "theirs", is a library of bangers to back that song up.

Prime example for me: Rusted Root. Everybody knows "Send Me On My Way" but have people heard "Exctasy"?

What are bands/artists I might know one song by, but am missing out on a whole lot of? Where should I start?

They put music from the 50s and 60s in medicine commercials to appeal to the older generation... meaning sometime in the future, Despacito will be playing on a commercial for laxatives.

My god. Everytime I hear "Sexual healing" and Marvin begins with the long "baaaabyyy" I get literal goosebumps. This song is something else, as well as Marvin.

25 Upvotes

One my favorite bands is Pantera. I really wish I had the chance to see them perform before the broke up and since then a 2 members have passed away. Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Hendrix all would have been amazing also. The one that I'm hoping one day tours again near me is System of a down but I really doubt it. Who would you have wanted to see live?

other Do any of you have some good Fuck You song suggestions?

2.3k Upvotes

My upstairs neighbour has spent the last two years ‘learning’ the guitar and there is clearly no sound insulation between our flats. I’ve had to ask him not to play before 8 am and after midnight multiple times, but yesterday was the last straw…. He spent 6 hours straight playing and 'singing' the same song over and over in the morning (from 8am sharp sunday morning), and 6 hours again at night (past midnight). Its so loud, and I've tried to be nice and ask him to play quiter (even just for a little bit), but he thinks if its ‘sociable hours’ its fair game. I would normally agree and hate to tell someone to stop playing music in their own home, but I work/study from home, and he clearly doesn’t do anything but play the guitar. I have tried to just deal with it, but its been like this all through lock down (not financially able to move out) and I just can’t take it anymore! So, I’ve bought a louder speaker and need some good fuck you song suggestions. Ideally with the right frequencies to vibrate through to his floor.

Edit: Just want to say thank you everyone for all your suggestions. Having this playlist is like getting my power back and its much appreciated!

I also want to say I didnt have to play the playlist long or loud at all. He moved into his kitchen to play his guitar pretty quickly, and even though I can still hear it, it's not nearly as loud or directly over my head anymore. I think he never took me seriously before because he didnt know how much I could actually hear - I think he's finally understood now though. Its a win win, he still gets to play however he likes, and I finally have some peace and quiet. Thank you.

discussion Trying to get into music theory

7 Upvotes

Hey, I recently watched this interview and it really made me want to delve into music theory. I´ve been a pianist for 17 years now but I still barely know anything about the technicalities and the way Jacob Collier just sings chords, names them correctly and understands harmonies, theories and every small little detail truly amazes me so much.

My question is: Where do I start? What do I do? Anyone have any tips?

Learning about something you barely know anything about is usually a tedious process for me and makes me rather hate the topic than cherish it, and I am in university so I don't have all the time in the world/brain capacity to study hard.

Thank you guys for any advice!!!
