Racer Ten are a punk band from Canada. A four piece melodic punk band to be a little more precise. Wanna know more about them? Let's take a walk through their sixteen track CD, entitled "Melodies & Memories.".
The main themes differ from the other music in that they are pop songs. Kingdom Hearts II includes more vocal songs found specifically in the Atlantica world, which features rhythm-based minigames set in the world of The Little Mermaid.
Its English counterpart, "Simple and Clean", is the theme song to the English release of the games as well as the Japanese re-release of the first game, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix. Both songs were written and performed by Utada Hikaru. The single, " Hikari ", was released in Japan on March 20,  and proved to be very popular; it sold overcopies in a week.
Like the first theme, Utada Hikaru wrote and performed both the Japanese and English versions, and there are two mixes. Yoko Shimomura composed the music for the three main Kingdom Hearts games and their remakes. She began composing video game music inand joined Square inbut left in to work freelance. Many of the musical pieces are arrangements of Disney themes, which Shimomura stated she enjoyed arranging.
Shimomura felt a great deal of pressure working on such recognizable tunes, and made an effort to maintain the original mood and atmosphere of them while complying with the technical specifications of the PlayStation 2. For example, the original orchestrated arrangement of the song " This is Halloween " from The Nightmare Before Christmas was impossible to reproduce on the PlayStation 2's sound system. To keep aspects of it intact, Shimomura used a trial and error method to arrange the piece.
In creating original music, Shimomura wanted to create compositions that would make players feel good while playing to accompany the action aspect of Kingdom Hearts. She played the game and looked over scripts and illustrations for inspiration. After coming up with ideas, she discussed them with director Tetsuya Nomura and the game planners.
The two main theme songs were written and performed by Japanese American artist Utada Hikaru. She wrote two versions for each, one in Japanese and one in English; the latter is used for international releases of the games. Utada was the only singer Nomura had in mind for the first Kingdom Hearts theme song. He considered Utada an iconic young singer whose music could break language and international barriers. Aside from being featured in the Kingdom Hearts video games, the music has been released via a variety of methods.
Soundtracks for the first and third game were released shortly after the games' release. These were followed by a compilation set which featured unreleased tracks from the series, Album) well as new and rearranged versions of tracks from the re-released versions of the games.
The first soundtrack was released in Japan, United States and Europe. All other albums were released only in Japan. Though the two main themes were released as part of the game soundtracks, they were officially released as singles a week prior to the games' releases. The soundtrack has met with an overall positive reception. The album contains musical tracks from the game, composed and produced by Yoko Shimomura, with the main orchestral tracks arranged by Kaoru Wada and performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.
The soundtrack was released in Japan on January 25, The soundtrack received positive remarks from critics. The boxset contains music composed and produced by Yoko Shimomura, with the main orchestral tracks arranged by Kaoru Wada. The album also features various unreleased tracks from the series, as well as new and rearranged versions of tracks from the two Final Mix releases and Re:Chain of Memories.
The compilation boxset was released in Japan on March 28, The collection has printed images on each disc and includes a deluxe booklet containing new illustrations designed by director and character designer Tetsuya Nomura and comments from Yoko Shimomura. There, composer Yoko Shimomura described the album as consisting of easy listening piano solo arrangements. Unlike the first album, which features mostly character themes and background music, this compilation features themes from battles and worlds.
It was released on February 2, Cardinal was the perfect partnership of the supreme song writing of Australian Richard Davies and the lush voice and arrangements of Californian Eric Matthews. Together they were untouchable — Davies had the most instinctive song writing skills and killer melodies since David Bowie, and Matthews had a truly unique soulful voice and the arranging skills of Burt Regrets - Racer Ten - Melodies & Memories (CD.
When I put it on, it was like being totally woken up, because it hits you like the fucking Beastie Boys or something. It really takes your head off! The Pretty Things were really out there.
They were pushing it just as hard as The Beatles but in a different direction. They recorded it at Abbey Road, Album). The whole album is consistently brilliant. An arsenal of post-MDMA, post-post-punk, anti-love songs. It launched a thousand stage invasions across East Lancashire and North Lincolnshire; each song is like a Bukowski short story, upended and restaged in Grimsby, set to the sound of a dodgy amp and out tune Squire Telecaster.
The die hard few who decided they were not content with the rubbish took these songs to their hearts. We went to the same High School. He was a really fucked-up kid. This was in the late Seventies. I Album) at school in Toronto when the LA punk thing happened. It sounded too much like English punk.
The album began as a concept which became progressively more difficult to achieve. They wanted it to be an actual radio station, one far left of the dial, and you could just tune into it and they would constantly be creating new music. Whenever you would tune it would either be them having a conversation, or jamming, or writing a song, and it would only happen at night.
The idea was of tuning into a spiritual frequency. They made this hip-hop record, which was smart, political, funny and nasty. As a songwriter, my earliest inspiration came from hip-hop. And the fact that it was from the west coast. Chick Corea was an early supporter of Scientology. They kickstarted a lot of that French dance movement. This album came out in and it never succeeded as it should have. It just seems to be quite psychologically powerful. At one of them, they handed out a mix, and the first track on that was LFO.
From that I wanted to investigate more. This is the first techno album that I bought, and can still listen to as an album, rather than just enjoying one or two songs off it. The Dancing Did were a short-lived four-piece from Evesham, Worcestershire, who spanned post-punk, punk, goth, psychobilly and folk-rock in the freakiest, most flawless way. For all the melodrama and vast range of influences, they never sound like anything but classic English eccentrics. But at the same time, they have really amazing pop songs.
I really got into Eater cos they had Dee Generate Strummer on guitar who was about 14, and I was pretty young at the time so I thought that was pretty cool they thought the Pistols were too old. Did this record shock me? I had spiky hair, then I went skin for a while, then I went kinda Nick Cave.
Sweeping through its many voices, sounds, moods, landscapes it is as much a lost experience as a lost album. John Cale is most famous for The Velvet Underground. He is less famous for almost everything else: for being Welsh, his classical music sophistication, and his prolific thirty-plus album solo and producing career. This album was such an incredibly exciting record for a year-old.
It was fraught, angry, strange and threatening. One of the strangest memories I have is that with it being vinyl you were supposed to play it at 45rpm.
But because it was an album, I played it at 33rpm. So for the first few months I was playing it at the wrong speed. It sounded like some bizarre death metal record. The singer, Michael Ryan, had bee-stung lips and a perfect fringe — there was something going on there. This album, its ambition, drew me and Nicky and Ritchey and Sean in.
It was on Album) brink of collapse all the time, but they managed to harness it in the music. So when I read that Jeffrey Lee Pierce was doing a solo album and that it was a bit of a production number, I was intrigued. And then I listened, and I just thought it was one of the most perfect meldings of pop sensibility and rock, which is the hardest thing to do. I just want to do this once in my life. But this album is utterly embroiled in Neu!
They never, ever get the credit for being one of the most inventive British bands ever. And the way that so many bands can splinter into each other — from Neu!
I think the whole sound of this record is revolutionary and ahead of its time. They were from Newport, and when they came out they really slagged us off saying they were gonna take us out. They had James Taylor on Hammond, one of the all-time great Hammond players. In fact, all the titles are brilliant. They were lumped in with C86, but they were the only Marxist, Communist C86 band, really! Evidently, the singer changed his mind about the record, releasing a CD version in At least one copy managed to escape out into the world.
The money was split between James and Doctors Without Borders. An undisputed classic tops the list. For years, it was rumored that the first copy went to the late John Lennon, but really it went to Ringo Starr. Starr put the money toward his own Lotus Foundation — a charity that provides support for victims of domestic violence, cancer research, the homeless, and other noble causes. Later in his career, Anka was also known for writing songs for other artists, including Frank Sinatra and Buddy Holly.
Can I get on that for my commute? Mamma Mia, here we go again! However, you might not know how drastically different the lyrics to this song are from the English version to the Swedish. The rest was history. If only our siblings were this talented! Enter George McCrae. The single sold 11 million copies and Rolling Stone named it the top song of the year. Cher sold 11 million copies of this dance-pop single worldwide and became the oldest female artist to ever enjoy that kind of chart-topping success.
Her use of autotune was inspired by another artist, Andrew Roachford, and the similar effects he was able to achieve using a vocoder. It was like some stupid Rocky film. Band Aid was a supergroup of English and Irish musicians who joined their talents in The single went on to sell Over the years, Band Aid has reformed with different lineups to release music to benefit other humanitarian causes.
Most recently, they got together in as Band Aid What do a cop, a leather-loving biker, a construction worker, and a Native American have in common? Luckily for Village People, they were able to resolve the issue out of court and keep on dancing.
Then light-heavyweight champion Henry Maske was set to fight his final match inand Bocelli and Brightman sang their duet live at the beginning of the event. Talk about an amazing send-off! They also would later push the boundaries of pop and rock and roll, creating conceptual albums and inspiring artists from The Beach Boys and Bob Dylan to the stars of today. Any music industry insider will tell you that Christmas albums practically sell themselves, and singles are no different.
Singing cowboy Gene Autry learned from experience that a Christmas single is a great way to line your pockets. This single embodies the weird minimalism of German New Wave, and it was a hit in Europe long before reaching the States. Relying on simple sounds and stripped down instrumentation, Trio carved out a space for their quirky aesthetic in music history.
Often, their songs were so simple that drummer Peter Behrens was able to play his part with just one hand while eating an apple with the other. To make it a real success, Gaynor even campaigned herself, flagging down DJs who worked at Studio 54 and begging them to play the song.
Advocating for herself paid off for Gaynor, and the single sold 14 million copies. It has been covered by artists from Diana Ross to Cake, and drunkenly karaoked by yours truly.
It sold 15 million copies worldwide. Interestingly, this track was the one that Grease director Randal Kleiser initially did not want. Songwriter John Farrar put his foot down, it stayed in the picture, and the rest is history. Adams says he and his writing partner producer Mutt Lange wrote the song in about 45 minutes. How did we even have Christmas before Mariah Carey blessed us with this megahit? With Luckily the movie studio pushed the song through production and into the credits.
Relying on disco beats and breathy vocals, Regrets - Racer Ten - Melodies & Memories (CD, Baccara had a sound that drove European club kids wild back in Eventually, each wanted to reform the group without the other, so there were two concurrent Baccara lineups, one called Baccara and one called New Baccara. InThe Ink Spots were the first black performers ever on television. Besides raking in accolades, the single was also able to do a lot to send aid to Africa and raise awareness of the famine.
All told, the single sold 20 million copies. NEXT: This single proved to the world that rock and roll was here to stay. The single sold around the clock, too. The song got a bump in popularity again when Haley recorded a shortened version that served as the theme song to the first couple seasons of Happy Days. Singer Ray Dorset reportedly wrote the song in less than ten minutes.
Following the tragic death of his friend Princess Diana, Elton John recorded a new version dedicated to the Princess of Wales. John himself was knighted by the royal family shortly after the single was released. Toggle navigation.
