The Songs Lyrics History
Song lyrics are known since the very beginning of song writing in ancient times. Mayan people have written lyrics on stones, for songs dedicated to gods and performed on rituals. Then in ancient Egypt lyrics have been found on papyrus sheets which represented songs that ancient pharaohs wanted to listen, and also song lyrics dedicated to Amon Ra the Egyptian god of the sun. Many song lyrics are now interpreted and translated to English or other languages and the originals writings are kept in museums around the world.
Song lyrics have taken their special place since the ending of the Baroko and special attention has been given since then. The Lyrics revolution appears with the fast development of technology where music has gained a special place in every culture. The early 60es, 70es and 90es bring the first lyrics that people actually paid special attention on, since they represented the emotional adventures, the life experience etc. Love has gained a special place in song lyrics since it's descriptions, stories and adventures are an enormous source of experience and inspiration.
With the appearance of computers, internet, mp3 players etc, lyrics have made yet another revolution in song writing and music it's self. Since the music is developing really fast and the number of different style is constantly increasing, lyrics again become more like one with the music and sometimes are hard to understand or remember. So people wanted to know every songs lyrics and started searching for them everywhere. The demand raised and soon lyrics for each and every song were distributed trough all the media.
Karaoke machines now digitally show the lyrics of every song that plays. Videos with lyrics included actually gain more viewers than the original and official song videos. Many kinds of media for distributing lyrics appear and also millions of websites for distributing lyrics.
The latest gadgets can not be imagined without the ability for distributing lyrics, so now where ever you listen to music you also have the ability to search for the lyrics, read them, and actually be able to sing the song without any mistakes in pronunciation the words or understanding random parts of each song.
The lyrics phenomena is everywhere and it will be here for a long time. People are becoming more and more curious about what's the song about, and not just listening to the melody. This improves the music development quality and helps people enjoy the progress of creating and listening to music.
News Top Artists
Mika could be a motivational speaker. All of his music has that uplifting, happy-go-lucky message; “Love Today,” “Grace Kelly,” “Big Girls (You Are Beautiful)” are just a few examples. With “Celebrate,” he proves that he hasn’t lost his penchant for penning peppy songs.
The singer swaps his trademark high-pitched vocal range for a softer, smoother R&B tenor in this single. (During the chorus, he still reverts back to the soprano we know and love.) His lyrics, however, and as a result, the song’s theme, strive toward the same trope that Mika has become known for throughout his career: happiness.
“I wanna come home to the only place I know/Where the trees I planted grow/I wanna come home,” sings Mika. He doesn’t hide his intention behind tricky metaphors or long-winded anecdotes the way other artists would. No, his message is simple and clear: “I want the whole world to celebrate.”
Joining Mika in the comeback boat is Pharrell, producer of the song as well as guest star singer. Pharrell echoes his buddy’s sentiments – and sound – switching up his aggravating (and sometimes off-key) falsetto in favor of a lower register, with his own political demonstration shouts sprinkled after. The song boils down to an inspiring, if not mildly cheesy, collision of voices and noises telling us to seize the moment, be happy, celebrate.
We’re sure we’ll be seeing this song featured on one of those you-can-be-anything-you-want-to-be-if-you-drink-our-soda Mountain Dew commercials very soon. Listen below.
