There are a lot of songs that talk about searching. Some of them are famous, while others aren’t so popular. They range from country to rock, and you can find hits from the 1990s, 2000s, and even today. Songs from artists like the Velvelettes, Jason Mraz, and Bob Dylan are included in this collection.
‘Needle in a Haystack’ by the Velvelettes
Velvetettes were a group that formed in the early 1960s and had several hits, including ‘Needle in a Haystack’, which peaked at #45 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Velvelettes’ next hit, ‘He Was Really Saying Something,’ peaked at #64 on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached the top twenty on the R&B Singles chart. The Velveettes broke up a few years later and never made it big in the music business, but they did leave a legacy of records in the Motown catalog.
The Velvelettes were assigned to the label VIP Records, a label that had become a shabby member of the Motown family. Despite the terrible yellow label, their songs didn’t sell any less than their Motown label-mates’.
‘Everything’s Strange’ by G-Eazy
‘Everything’s Strange’ is the name of a new compilation album by G-Eazy. The album was released exclusively for streaming on June 26, 2020, through RCA Records. It includes tracks from G-Eazy’s previous projects, including The Life of Pablo and The Life of XXXTentacion.
The album is G-Eazy’s first studio album since the Scary Nights EP in 2016. While the album was originally scheduled to drop at the start of this month, the protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement delayed the release. However, the Bay Area rapper confirmed the album’s new release date via Twitter.
‘Everything’s Strange’ features ten tracks, including a few singles. It features guest vocals by Kossisko and Ashley Benson. It’s available on Apple Music and Spotify. G-Eazy is currently working on his next studio album, titled ‘These Things Happen Too’.
The album has a variety of genres and sounds. G-Eazy is known for his unique sound. His music varies from slow hip-hop to fast-paced songs. The lyrics of “Free Porn Cheap Drugs” showcase the rapper’s musical skills as well as his lifestyle.
As a debut album, ‘Everything’s Strange’ has a somewhat silly image. It’s like a parody of sadboycore. In this sense, the album is one of the funniest albums ever. His ‘woe-is-me’ cover art and meaningless title make it a very funny listen. While G-Eazy has been known to dabble in psychedelic sounds and styles, it’s not surprising that the album’s title is completely inappropriate.
Bob Dylan’s ‘Tangled Up In Blue’
“Tangled Up in Blue” strikes a lyrical middle ground between Dylan’s surreal lyrics from the ’60s and his straight-forward love songs. Its composition shows the artist’s poetic process, as Dylan made several revisions to the song. He changed the pronouns of figures in the song, omitted verses, and rearranged the order of the verses. Additionally, Dylan experimented with time and the idea of time in a non-linear way.
The lyrics of “Tangled” have been rewritten to create a tangle of images. This means that the song jumps from the present to the past and to a dreamy future. Often, the lyrics change from line to line, referencing a love lost, or another woman who reminds the singer of the former. In other versions of the song, the singer moves away from his first love, meeting visions of her in other places.
The song was first recorded as a single and reached the Billboard Hot 100 at #31 in 1974. Later, Dylan recorded the song with producer Phil Ramone in New York and then re-recorded it in Minnesota with his brother David. David helped organize the sessions and produced the version that would eventually be featured on the album.
Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’
The song “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey is about the common search for love and fear of loneliness. It tells the story of a boy and a girl who leave their hometowns and look for love. The song takes a humorous look at everyday life and uses literary devices to persuade listeners that searching for love can be fulfilling. It is often performed as the closing song of a Journey concert.
The song’s structure is unique. Rather than repeating the chorus several times, this song starts with an instrumental section, then the first verse. The second verse follows, and then the chorus is at the end of the song. The song fades out from the instrumental section, allowing the lyrics to take the lead.
Journey was a huge hit in the early 1980s. After the death of Steve Perry, the band went through a long search for a lead singer. It was years before the band found the right person. Eventually, they added keyboardist Cain to their lineup. The song’s title came from an encouraging word that Cain had heard from his father as he tried to make it as a musician on Sunset Boulevard.
Don’t Stop Believing was featured in the pilot episode of the hit TV show Glee in May 2009. It was also featured in a Journey documentary. It has also been featured in films such as The Comebacks, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, and The Losers. There’s something about the song that appeals to the soul of every human being.
G-Eazy’s ‘Where have you gone?’
G-Eazy has risen to stardom in recent years after releasing his first studio album on a major label. The Oakland rapper has enjoyed top-10 hits, headlined festivals, dated models, and had run-ins with the law. However, the rapper struggles to find a balance between his fame and his personal life. His new single, ‘Where Have You Gone?’, may be a hint.
The track opens with soft piano and playful synths and transitions to a hard bass and snare joint. The song is about the effects of fame and how it affects relationships. Though G-Eazy doesn’t deny Halsey’s feelings, his response feels sleazy and shallow.
The track’s title hints at his past. The Bay Area rapper’s childhood was marked by tragedy. His father left him when he was very young, and his mother started dating another woman. His relationship with her was difficult, and she eventually took her own life. She eventually overdosed, and was found dead in the basement. The new track follows a series of singles from G-Eazy’s 2014 debut, ‘These Things Happen’.
“Breakdown” by G-Eazy is one of the best songs on the album. The song is a reflection on the toxic relationship between artists and their audiences. Often times, artists and listeners are not able to separate their personal life from their work, and this makes the situation worse. ‘Breakdown’ reunites G-Eazy and Demi Lovato.
The album contains many songs that perpetuate the “player” criticisms about G-Eazy. Songs like “Origami,” “Solar Eclipse,” “Bad Bad News,” and “Time” do little to improve the reputation of G-Eazy as a good rapper.
