Hello today...
this time I decided to put here something black and white - that's just life though sometimes some colours happen too (or lack of any colours at all). Ok. So today 2 songs from latest Maria Mena album titled VICTORIA. I hope you will like the songs beneath. :-)

1. Maria Mena Victoria
2. Maria Mena homeless

Ok. Now something more about Maria Mena (also from wikipedia):

Maria Mena was born into an artistic family, her mother, a playwright and her father, a drummer. Both Maria and her brother, Tony, are named after characters from Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story. Her mother is Norwegian and her father is Nicaraguan.

Her father played in several bands in Oslo, which influenced Mena to write and record her own music. When Mena was nine years old, her parents divorced. She suffered from depression and developed an eating disorder.

When Mena was 13 years old, she moved to live with her father. She sang and wrote lyrics as a form of self-soothing. "My Lullaby", a song from Mena's diary, expresses her pain from her parents' divorce. After pleading with her father to make a demo, he contacted some acquaintances in the music industry to record the demo. Presenting his daughter's demo to several record companies, Sony Music signed Mena to their label.


To be continued soon...

Hello,
That's me again. I have just had a look into this site and what can I see?
Do you like TIROL music? I think it is terribly boring. I am not able at the moment to scan for so many pages in this plot but I think TIROL music has appeared earlier here. Only I don't know where and when. So when I have so few time I want to put POLISH MOUNTAINEUS FOLKLORE - to me more interesting than slow German songs. And well... apart from being tuneful not interesting at all. Just like all other German songs only lyrics about Tirol when Polish mountaineous folklore is much more interesting from artistic point of view. If more sensful/less sensful I don't know. As deals lyrics - noone speaks language of poeple of mountains - so who cares? That's all. So when once again TIROL - Polish mouintaineous folklore also once again. Up to you what is really better and about what REAL problems the artists sing. :roll:

Silesia band Polish mountain music

cheers,
LM.

Amazing! Beethoven is one of my favorite Classical composers. However, the Violin solo concert he composed is a very difficult one but rich in Technic to practice and make you a better violinist ( Yes, I love it).
Well, to continue the thread, I've been listening to these songs lately:

"At Last" by Etta James.
"Romeo" by Basement Jaxx.
"Beautiful liar" by Beyoncè.

Madonna is the best-selling female rock artist. She is a good business-woman She is an artist.

I don’t really like her music but I admire her ability to change her image and her music without selling her soul.
If you look into her eyes you can always see the same person. A person who like herself and other people.

Hi Elisa and everyone who cares,
well you wrote it very well...but best selling person is too little to me. Madonna is a VERY COMPLICATED PERSON. She had some background and a very clear focus in her life to MAKE CAREER. Did she succeed? What I mean in this point is we really are UNABLE to say ANYTHING about Madonna from her so called stage-life cause she was/is still???? so determined person as deals her career. And I personally think only reading her biography can help you to understand a lot of things (if it is able to help you at all).So many biographies, different biographies and only then you are able to understand ANYTHING from Madonna's career at all.Such a determined person with very obvious focus TO MAKE A CAREER in US, international, world-wide career... strange but true I think. I am not her biographer so that is all I can write.
Today next 4 hits of Madonna:
1. Madonna Nothing really matters

2. Madonna Hung up

3.Madonna American life

4. Madonna don't tell me

To be continued soon,
LM.

Hi people,
this is me again. I have decided to put here more Madonna cause I don't have other ideas whom - what to give here in these days. Think what you want but in my opinion noone really made bigger? better? career than Madonna. Maybe I have been thinking too much about Madonna lately but who knows what does it mean to think too much about this or that person (I mean I 've been thinking too much about Madonna's career - how to repeat it in this or that branch - something like that).That's all. I wanted to put here 8 more pieces from Madonna but I have noticed one can put here only 4 songs in one entry. So 4 songs now, soon 4 last songs from Madonna and other singers will appear here - my next ideas here I mean.
Soon more again.
In the meantime:
1.Madonna deeper and deeper

2.Madonna Beautiful stranger

3.Madonna Ray of light

4.Madonna sorry

All the best for all Madonna fans and not only...
