Music Monday: “Miami 2 Ibiza”

Hey Milieunairs,

Swedish House Mafia - Until One (Official Album Cover)It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!  

Rationale: I may not be the kind of person who goes clubbing every weekend but I am definitely one who enjoys a song with a good beat. Especially one that I can suggestively gyrate my hips to. Oh yeah, that’s right!

Unlike most people, I almost never listen to the words of a song. To me, music is all about the melody, tone and beat.

Music Monday: ‘Broken Open’

Hey Milieunairs,

It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe! Adam Lambert - For Your Entertainment

Rationale: I have, on many an occasion, written about songs which I have labelled as ‘hauntingly beautiful’. As it so happens, ‘Broken Open’ by Adam Lambert, is another song which fits into this category.

At first listen, one could be forgiven for thinking that ‘Broken Open’ is simply a mock rendition of ‘Mad World’ by Gary Jules; another of my favourite songs. Both songs share an eerily similar melodic pattern, one which is a pleasure to listen to. On a purely basic auditory level, Lambert’s ‘Broken Open’ is quite different to ‘Mad World’, offering more of an upbeat pop synth loop with spacey techno buzzes and pings added for good measure. Even so, the song has a beautiful sound made even better with Lambert’s sultry voice. Surprisingly, Adam co-wrote ‘Broken Open’ as well.

I must say, Adam Lambert has created a stellar debut album. He has managed to cater for almost every genre, proving his versatility as an artist. Even more impressive, is the amount of talent that was wired behind the scenes into helping him create his first album, from the likes of MUSE, Pink, Lady Gaga, Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic) and Sam Sparro, among others; all adding their own personal touches to each of Lambert’s songs. ‘For Your Entertainment’ is a brilliant pop album and is definitely worth listening to.

As always, whenever I post about Vivaciously Varietal Vibes on Music Monday’s, simply click on the name of the song to be taken to a web page that displays the songs lyrics.
