Playlist Analysis: Good Old Rock Music 🤘

Playlist Analysis: Good Old Rock Music 🤘

KISS, Queen, Guns N’ Roses, Deep Purple… You have definitely heard of those big names and hopefully you know also a song or two by them! Good Old Rock Music includes songs of the rock bands that have made history. 🎵

Good Old Rock Music

Good Old Rock Music playlist is perfect for those who love old rock bands. If you are not familiar with songs in this playlist, you should try at least a couple of them! These songs are so iconic and definitely belong to common knowledge. Let’s introduce some examples:

Queen 👑

Rock playlist without Queen wouldn’t be a proper rock list at all! Being one of the greatest influences in rock genre, Queen has deserved its place in the history. Freddie Mercury is a legend having a tragic life and amazing as well as special voice. You can definitely learn from his charismatic perform skills and singing technique. Of course it’s extremely hard to reach his level but it’s good to aim high! You can get the Queen vibes by singing four of their songs from the Good Old Rock Music playlist. Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Don’t Stop Me Now, Bohemian Rhapsody and Somebody to Love are there waiting for you. Choose your favorite and record your best imitation of Freddie!

KISS 😘

Another iconic rock band is definitely KISS. This hard rock band is still active having half of the original members in the band. Have you seen their live show? How cool it is to hear those legendary songs and see the most popular masks in real life! KISS’s rock has an attitude and it’s a bit aggressive. Some may classify KISS’s music as heavy metal being so close to the border of hard rock and metal music. Musical styles have developed from one direction to other. In any case, get your attitude to the max level and start singing some KISS! Considerable choices would be: Detroit Rock City and Lick It Up.

Uriah Heep 🎸

Uriah Heep is also a popular hard rock band from the 70’s. If the name of this band isn’t familiar to you, you may still know their hit songs. Listen to Lady in black and July Morning so maybe you’ll recognize at least the other one. Uriah Heep’s music is kind of relaxing and at the same time it has the feeling of traditional hard and progressive rock. The band is still active but only the guitarist is a member of the original Uriah Heep. Members have changed a lot through the times and now the group has remained about the same for four years. The original singer, David Byron, had charismatic stage presence like Freddie Mercury but dramatically he was dismissed from the band quite early. Show your version of Uriah Heep on Karaoke Game!

Guns N’ Roses 🌹

This band is a bit younger than the bands introduced above. Still Gun N’ Roses belong to the list of must-know rock bands! I believe that I’m not the only one who gets chills when the guitar riff of Sweet Child O’ Mine starts playing. After the intro it’s time to start singing hard rock like Axl Rose! And don’t freeze in one place, this is that kind of music where you have to show your attitude with the moves. Take Nightrain for an example, that song is full of hard rock spirit!

These legends and others like AC/DC, Aerosmith, Deep Purple and The Scorpions can be found from the Good Old Rock Music playlist. What are your favorite songs from the playlist? You can sing these songs and more on Karaoke Game mobile app. Just tap yourself in and swipe left until you see this playlist or other songs you like. Happy Singing!

Style yourself like a rock star! 👨‍🎤

Style yourself like a rock star! 👨‍🎤

When you decide to become a singer, you must remember to style yourself in a proper way. Choose your genre and get the right clothes out of your closet!

Style yourself like a rock star

Few artists get their personalities noticed without a certain style. You definitely know Lady Gaga’s extraordinary style and KISS’s personal masks and clothes. Even Ed Sheeran has his own style with laid-back clothes and messy hair. It’s typical to represent genre’s style and season it a little bit with an imagination. 🦄

Your style ROCKS! 🤘

When you decide to sing rock, remember to show your attitude with a suitable clothing. Rock is quite large category so there are many kind of styles to follow. Maybe black clothes with some kind of bright colored details would represent the basic rock outfit. However, I think that today’s big rock bands dress casually. For example members of Imagine Dragons, Foo Fighters, Linkin Park, The Killers and Muse wear often loose jeans, t-shirt and an open jacket. Nothing too complicated, something comfortable but still cool-looking. Maybe you could add something a bit crazy like Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Flea who dyes his hair in bright colors.

Style yourself rock

POP up those clothes! 👒

Pop stars may dress up in a kind of simply way but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have a style. Actually pop stars follow or even define the fashion of today. So in my opinion, pop stars’ clothes are as in as can be! Pop stars dress a bit lighter than rock stars. Therefore if you want to sing some pop, you may want to choose some smooth and kind looking clothes when you step to the stage. Boys of The Chainsmokers show up dressed in t-shirts and Miley Cyrus’ new Malibu look prefers white clothes and light dresses.

Hip Hop speaks for loose trousers 👖

Okay, hip hop is one of the easiest styles I think. At least a couple years ago every hip hop fan was easily noticed because his or her loose clothes, skate shoes and a cap. So pick your loose trousers if you seek to be a hip hop artist. Also, suitable accessories could be bandanas or big jewels. It would also be cool if you knew some break or hip hop dance moves! You can always style yourself by learning from your favorite hip hop stars example. Steal Eminem’s clean style or get inspired by Snoop Dogg’s laid-back clothes.

Style yourself hiphop

Heavy Metal needs heavy clothing 👿

If you like singing heavy music, you may feel like dressing in black and heavy clothes. Long hair would be desirable for the best moshing experience. Especially when your clothes weight so much that it’s hard to move anything else than your head. Also, using dark makeup and having some tattoos would be suitable for heavy metal artist. Marilyn Manson and Ozzy Osbourne are great examples of wild heavy music styles. Looking angry and scary metal man is one possibility but if you don’t want to give children any nightmares you can choose a bit softer look. Metallica’s and Iron Maiden’s boys look essentially kind of sympathetic.

Music genres have specialized styles connected to them. Fashionable clothes can be related to global hit music when dark and gothic clothes can conjure up heavy music style. It could be funny to see a heavy metal styled band that starts to play soft pop. On the other hand, that would be a great way to stand out. Don’t take these blog posts too seriously and dress up just the way you feel like! Thanks for reading and see you next time. 👋

Singer – the most popular member of the band? 😎

Singer – the most popular member of the band? 😎

Often bands are defined by the singers. We speak about artists and singers more than the other musicians in the band. Why is singer the most popular member of the band? Or is it? 🤔

Singer - the most popular member

When you think about some band, do you see their singer on your mind? Singer is often the front man of the band, speaking for the other members and connecting to their audience. Instruments can be played differently but they always sound kind of same. Singer gives personality to the band singing with a voice that can only be sung by him or her.

The voice as an instrument 👨‍🎤

Singing can be done in so many ways. It’s possible to make the most extraordinary sounds with your vocal cords. It’s fascinating and maybe also one of the reasons why singers are appreciated so much. Voice is a unique instrument, it’s organic and you can’t get the exact sound with a machine. Every singer has their own style and personal specialities and it’s harder to be unique with an other instrument. It’s true that in some cases bands are known for their talented guitarists or other instrument players but especially in today’s music the singers are put on a pedestal. Instruments can be replaced with a computer and the result will be reasonable but if you make singer out of a robot, the sound will totally become different than with real voice cords.

You can do it too! ✌️

There is no need to buy any instruments when you have one of your own! When you hear your favorite song it’s easy to start humming the melody and repeating the lyrics. The easiest way to participate in music is to start singing. You can be a part of the song! Do you know how singers give the mic to the audience in the concerts? At that moment people in the concert hall sing together because they know the melody and lyrics. Singer may be the most popular member because he or she plays the instrument that you own too.

Connecting 🙋

Singing is more than just a melody. Lyrics play very important part in music, the most important one in some cases. Singing is kind of a second state of poetry or literature. Singers add melody and their vision to the lyrics, and finally tell us a story. Lyrics touch people and band can have a connect to their listeners with them. Some lyrics annoy, some makes us happy. We may relate to the lyrics and have emotions towards the meaning of the song. Singer speaks for the band and listeners have the best contact to him or her. When you are at the concert, it’s really hard to avoid watching the singer. Looking at the person when he or she speaks is natural! Singer creates a relationship to the audience and maybe that’s why he or she is the most popular member of the band.

Of course in some bands also instrument players are brought out well. For example, everybody recognizes Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist Flea, possibly because of his crazy personality. Another clear example is Guns N’ Roses’ guitarist Slash. You may not know what does Axl Rose look like but Slash is so iconic that he can’t be missed! Every member is needed and some of them just gain more attention than others. Thank You for reading this blog post. 🙂 See you next week!

Also Christina Grimmie was known all over the World and her career started with homemade cover videos. Max & Harvey are today’s promising stars and they also can benefit modern social media.

He is known for covers and also his original music being an American songwriter and video producer along his great singing talent. Sam has almost 3 million subscribers and his most popular video has over 36 million views. Sam Tsui has a soft and pretty high voice, which is perfect for beautiful pop and ballad songs. His channel consists mainly on singing videos, alone and together with other singers and instrument players. Occasionally he also shoots vlog videos. Like many other YouTubers he has a very professional style in his videos. For example his newest piece has a cool music video:

Jackie Evancho 👧

Nine years ago the first video of Jackie was uploaded on her YouTube channel. There 7 year-old girl sings unbelievably beautifully! No wonder she became famous at ten years old when she take part in America’s Got Talent TV show. Maybe you can remember her performs on television? Jackie has also made history a couple of times. She was the youngest solo platinum artist, the youngest Top 5 debut artist ever in U.K and for example the youngest solo artist concerting at Lincoln Center. Jackie Evancho’s YouTube channel is still active and now she has also released her album “Two Hearts”.

Nigahiga 😄

Nigahiga is a well-known YouTuber and he has also made some music. You have certainly watched at least a clip of nigahiga’s video but maybe you haven’t heard their music? Nigahiga’s front man, Ryan Higa, is famous for his comedy videos and he has also launched a foundation as well as released a book. Ryan has uploaded music videos made with other YouTubers. For example a humorous song, “Nice Guys”, has been made with Chester See, Kevjumba, Dtrix, Cathy Nguyen and Kina Grannis. It has been watched over 70 million times:

Vocal Ranges 😮🎶

Vocal Ranges 😮🎶

Have you tried to sing along a song that goes far too high or low? I know, that sucks. Even though it may be possible to expand your vocal range little bit by training, everybody has their limits. Do you know which of the vocal ranges suites you the best? 🎵

Vocal Ranges

It’s important to listen to your body and find a vocal range that is comfortable to you. Bands play songs in terms of singer’s abilities: songs can be transposed into suitable key for the singer’s register. In choirs and polyphonic singing singers are usually categorized by their vocal ranges. You may have heard of these main vocal ranges:

Soprano 🐦

This is the highest vocal range category for high female or boy voices. In my school’s singing classes, soprano was the most popular range partly because the main melody was always sung by sopranos. Of course young girls sing naturally high and also boys could sing the main melodies at the some cases. Soprano singers can sing typical from B3 to C6 but there are of course exceptions. Range is defined by our physique and size of the vocal cords, so don’t think that you are a bad singer if you can’t sing high notes! If you seek for a karaoke song for sopranos, try singing Sia’s Chandelier. That chorus goes up till note F5!

Alto 🙋

Alto range is for low female voices. Although alto singers don’t usually sing melody lines, the range is important. Singing range of alto is about from F3 to D5, but if the singer can sing lower, she is more valuable to choir. Sometimes alto is called contralto but in some cases they are a bit different ranges. Contralto is the lowest female voice range and can sing about from E3 to F5. For example Adele’s Rolling in the Deep would be a suitable song for most of the alto singers.

Tenor 👨

This is the range for high male voice. At younger ages it’s normal to have only a couple of singing parts for different vocal ranges. In elementary school many boys wanted to join to sopranos because they sang the main melody. But for example in my high school we had few tenor singers in the mixed choir. Some girls had to sing with them for the better balance. Tenors can sing about from C3 to B4 and their notes are usually written with the key of F key instead G. Frank Sinatra’s Fly me to the Moon is an example of a tenor song.

Bass 🐻

Bass singer has the lowest voice. In high school times many boys wanted to sing bass range even though the right category would have been a range between tenor and bass. That’s called baritone, having the range of G2 to G4. Some bass singers can reach as low as it’s possible for human voice. The general range for bass singers is however from D2 to E4. Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire is suitable for deeper voices.

These were the main vocal range categories, also labeled as SATB (Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass) ranges. Vocal ranges can be categorized into many smaller parts so these are only the general ones. Let’s keep singing and find our vocal ranges!

Music Festivals

The highlight of summer: Music Festivals! 🎶

Music festivals are one of the best things in summer. Good friends, live music, camping life and hanging out a lot in outdoors for a couple of days in a row! Now is a good time to share some tips for a festival life.

Music Festivals

When you are planning to participate in a Music Festival, you have many things to take into account. Are you going to take part in whole festival or stay just one or two days, where are you going to stay the night, are you going to take your friends with you… When your plans are clear, it’s easier to enjoy the festival!

How to prepare 🎒

First you have to choose which music festival is the one you want to attend. For example I wanted to stay in my home country this year and my friends were going to the festival called Provinssi. Usually the biggest factor in decision making would be the question which artists have concerts at the festival. At Provinssi festival there were big stars like The Killers, Ellie Goulding and Die Antwoord. There is a site called Music Festival Wizard which is a great help if you have problems deciding your target music festival. You can find music festivals by genres, artists, locations etc. How useful is that!

If the festival isn’t in your hometown, you have to plan your trip there. Roadtrip together with your friends would be a perfect mood lifter and staying the night in a camping place would fit to adventure. I always prefer camping because it’s cheap and in Provinssi festival, the camping place is right next to the festival area. It’s always an advantage to have short distances.

How to camp at festival 🏕️

If you choose camping as your accommodation, you should be aware how to do it right. Test your tent and find a sleeping bag. If you are not used to sleeping on the ground, you should consider buying an inflatable mattress. Sleeping in a tent can be made quite comfortable! When your travelling plans are clear, start packing your camping equipment. Remember to pack enough warm layers because nights can be cold! Also hygiene products and food should be taken with. When all the necessities are in the bag, add some extra comfort with mosquito repellant, bluetooth speakers and power banks. You shouldn’t take too many belongings so try to fit them in as few bags as possible. Hiking backpack would be a good option!

How to behave at concerts 💃

Check the concert timetable and highlight the artists you want to see. It’s impossible to be at every concert so you may have to make some compromises. Make your own schedule and include breaks for eating and resting in it. When you are going to concert area, take only the necessaries with you. There are rules in the festival area and you should obey them. If one artist has an audience of 10 000 people, the crowd has to behave well in order to avoid troubles. In Provinssi, crowd surfing and smoking were forbidden. Luckily most of the people obeyed those rules! Also pushing and disturbing others is naturally wrong. Enjoy the good music and remember to respect other people.

How to survive afterwards 😭

The last concert can be emotional and cause melancholy in the crowd. When the music festival is over, you may feel extremely sad. You can buy a souvenir or take a photo of your festival squad and recall your happy memories. At home you may feel tired so take a nap or go to sleep early. You may make surviving easier if you listen to the music of the festival artists and maybe you could start planning the next festival trip!

Unforgettable Music Videos from 90’s 😄

Unforgettable Music Videos from 90’s 📺

Do you still watch music videos? Back in time when there weren’t so many options where you could listen to music, you sometimes found yourself watching MTV or other music channel.

Unforgettable Music Videos

When you switch on a TV and find a channel that shows music videos, you’ll quickly get familiar with the videos. Some of the music videos can be annoying, some are amazing and others are replayed again and again. Then you see that video from couple years behind and feel nostalgic. Are these examples of unforgettable music videos from 90’s to you:

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californication 🌶️

This is the first music video that comes to my mind from 90’s. Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Californication has so special music video and I bet that I’m not the only one who would have loved to try that RHCP game! 🎮 Can’t feel anything but nostalgic when I see those pixel guys in that old video game. Chad snowboarding in extreme places, Anthony flying through a donut with a car and a peaceful dragonfly scene while the guitar solo is playing.

Britney Spears – …Baby One More Time 💁

This is a classic 90’s hit song and its music video did appear on the screen time after time. The school as a environment springs to mind as well as young Britney sitting in the classroom waiting for the bell to ring. Britney is singing and dancing with an attitude and telling her story with a serious look. Her dance moves are unforgettable and seen on most of her videos. Have you trained some of Britney’s dance choreographs?

Green Day – Basket Case 😷

Right away when someone mentions Basket Case, the weird colored screen with crazy hospital environment pops up to my mind. Soon Boys from Green Day start to play and sing “Do you have the time to listen to me whine”. Did you know that they actually shot the music video in black and white? Later added colors give extra creepiness to the video.

Aqua – Barbie Girl 👧

Aqua’s Barbie Girl is a well known song from the 90’s and I think that you have also seen the music video. It tells about Barbie Girl and Ken living in a fantasy world and going to the party! The music video brings to mind the popularity of barbie dolls in the last decade. That theme is shallow but however, the music is so catchy and it’s also hard to get eyes off the video.

Backstreet Boys – Everybody 👻

The first time when I saw Backstreet Boys’ Everybody, I thought that there was a movie starting on TV. The video starts with talking at the door of a haunted house, followed by a dancing scene with instrumental background music. The intro is a perfect warm-up for the music! I found the music video very interesting and funny and that’s why I get happy memories from it today. Hopefully you can identify with me!

Music videos give extra flavor to the music. These unforgettable music videos from 90’s are examples of it! Wouldn’t it be great to make a music video of your own? Practice singing and have fun with Karaoke Game’s recording feature!

U Smile is one of Justin Bieber’s first hits from 2010. It’s pretty calm song where Justin sings passionately about girl’s smile. The song isn’t musically complex at all.

Happy – Pharrell Williams 😄

Of course this song is included in Sunshine playlist, Pharrell Williams’ Happy is what the title says: a happy song!

The song is quite repetitive so maybe you shouldn’t listen to this song too many times over again or you may feel funny! 🎵

Last Night – The Vamps 🌃

The Vamps is a British boy band and full of energy! Some may compare it to One Direction and why not, both bands consist of cute boys and make happy music. The song tells about enjoying the life and taking the most of it. What are you waiting for? Sing the song and boost your mood to the roof!

The Greatest Song Lyrics

The Greatest Song Lyrics 😊

Some songs’ lyrics make no sense or have no depth at all. However, most of our favorite songs do have amazing lyrics! Let’s have a look of some of The Greatest Song Lyrics. 🙂

The Greatest Song Lyrics

Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey 🎙️

You can tell from the name of the song that it’s about not giving up. Keep believing and live free! Every band member had their contribution in the songwriting and they managed to create a song that has a great connection to their audition. They are singing about our world! Girl, boy, singer and strangers.

Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train goin’ anywhere

Check the song lyrics here: Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’ lyrics

Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson 👨

This previous US #1 hit has a deeper meaning than just a man mirroring himself. Co-writer Siedah Garrett has told about the inspiration of the lyrics: “To make a difference on the outside, you have to first start from within. So I think that Michael just got it… he got the meaning of the song right away.”

If you want to make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

Rest of the lyrics can be found here: Michael Jackson – Man in the Mirror lyrics

Imagine by John Lennon ☮️

Imagine has a strong political message and I think that we can all notice that. Lennon asks us to imagine a world where for example religion or possessions are not dividing people. He thought that it would be a peaceful place, better than this world where we are living in. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everybody could be living life in peace?

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

The whole song can be read here: John Lennon – Imagine lyrics

Skyscraper by Demi Lovato 🏢

Demi became famous because of her role in Disney’s Camp Rock movie. Even though she always looks so happy and brings a smile to our faces, she has had hard times. Skyscraper is inspired by her journey and struggles. She says: “I hope people are able to relate to it and realize that they are able to rise above and overcome any obstacle, no matter the circumstances, and shine like a skyscraper.”

Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper

Read the lyrics here: Demi Lovato – Skyscraper lyrics

Songs tell stories and these were just examples of good song lyrics. These songs can also be analyzed in different ways so you can find so many symbols hiding in them. Maybe we will bring out more song lyrics other time. Bye for now! 👋

Singers on YouTube part 2 ▶️

Singers on YouTube part 2 ▶️

A few weeks ago I highlighted three singers who had taken their first steps as musicians in YouTube. But there are more singers on YouTube who we have to introduce, so let’s begin with Singers on YouTube part 2!

singers on youtube part 2

Last time we examined three stars. Some of them were more popular than others being categorized into pop stars instead of YouTubers. So it’s true that celebrities like Justin Bieber can be found on YouTube. Also SAARA can be categorized into musician even though she uploads many kind of content to social media. The third singer was Jbunzie who is mostly a beauty vlogger but can sing too!

Shawn Mendes

People know Shawn Mendes because of his list hits but believe or not, he started his career by singing cover songs on YouTube. The first video has been uploaded four years ago and his most popular video has almost 11 million views! This 18-year-old star has melted our hearts with his talent and unique voice. What would be better than a handsome singer with a guitar! 😍


Christina Grimmie

Christina Grimmie started as a YouTuber, uploading mostly covers. Sometimes she made a video together with her best friend but singing was the main theme in those videos as well. She was first known as “zeldaxlove64” but when she got her first album out in 2011, she started to use her real name as her artist name.
