Is Music Going Back To Basics?
I absolutely adore music from the earlier years. The whole big band era simply makes me loose my breath. But nothing more magical then music from the 60’s to 80’s. You might remember when Christina Aguilera released her album ‘Back to Basics’ with music that inspired her as a singer. It’s one of my favorites!
Lately I’ve been noticing a trend in artist and musicians taking it back to basics. Re-inventing the sound that they grew up listening to. Bruno Mars is no stranger to this. His total package screams James Brown with a twist. He’s even kicking it up a knotch with ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’ which resembles Sting/ The Police.
Another band throwing it Back To Basics. The newly Grammy award winning band, Fun. ‘Some Nights’ reminded me of Simon and Garfunkel and Kansas (Cecila, Carry On My Wayward Son).
I couldn’t leave Justin Timberlake out. ‘Suit and Tie’ is a modern day fairy tale for the classic Big Bang music. His Grammy performance even was a tribute to that era. Reminded me of times where you would take your man or lady out on the town for a night of dancing.
I’m loving that these artist are bringing it back with a twist! Let me know your thoughts below!
