Music is cyclical too

Now this is a post I have been formulating for a while. I am huge into music, as FuW could attest. I think the third thing I would run out of the house with in an emergency is my ipod behind FuW and the cat. Itunes is on everyday for hrs. Anyway, I have discovered a few groups and there sounds is very familiar, probably because of my age more then anything else. And I really didnt discover them, just found them on MTV. Anyway, I am amazed how some of my favorite bands and artists sound alot like some of my favorite bands and artists from the past. Here are my examples...

The Killers=a very modern sounding band, ala Depeche Mode, or most definetly the Cure, listen to the lead singers voice modulations in some of his songs.

Franz Ferdinand=heavy on the guitar, but not at that metal level. I can easily compare them to The Clash and one of my favorites Elvis Costello & the Attractions

Keane=I struggled alot with this comparison, until it just hit me while I was in the shower. At least on the surface, which is all I have heard really from them Keane reminds me an awful lot of Crowded House.

Usher=talent wise he is cross between a more normal Michael Jackson, and a doubly more normal Prince. A showman, who can probably sing the ingredients to a martini and make it sound good. Plus he works with some of the best producers in the business.

The Black Eyed Peas=ya I cant fit them into anything, I mean they remind me alot of the fugees, the female singer is not as talented as Lauryn Hill, but better looking, but how can the Fugees be a classic influence when they were out in like 1999.

anybody else have any ideas on groups.

Oh and I heard this song by Straylight Foundation today, great great great song.

Is Keane the band that sings "Something To Rely On"? They sorta have a 1970's, sappy yet cool sound to them. And Fergie used to be on Kids Incorporated with Martika in the 80's. Bet she'd like us all to forget THAT. Another good new face is Gavin DeGraw. I only know the one song, but dang it, he's such a cutie.

I'm gonna call the group Snow Patrol what the Verve would have sounded like had they stuck together.

Sparky,
I LOVE KEANE!!!Also have you every thought of reviewing music? Any interest?

Sparky Duck said...

Tate-no comment on how cute or not cute Gavin is, and I am not holding anything against Fergie ever, not after that spread in Blender a few months back

Mickey-glad I could help, though for some reason I knew it was you.

Margo-Now I am going to have to listen to Snow Patrol again, though I think the Verve got a little arrogant, kinda like Oasis, but before they were a hit as opposed to after.

Me-of course theres interest, now the next step beyond interest thats the problem
