    Hey gurls So I work in music publishing and work with songwriting/song info. I won't have access to this info for much longer, so if you have any requests for credit splits/songwriting credits/how much a song is earning this month, for pretty much any song, leave your requests here and I can fetch the info for you Example: You want to to know how much songwriting credit each songwriter of New Rules by Dua Lipa is getting: Ailin Caroline, 33.33% Ian Eric Kirkpatrick, 33.33% Emily Warren Schwartz, 33.33% (half of their percentages go to their publishers) The shares aren't always split evenly, sometimes some artists who claim to write these songs are only getting 1-2% while their cowriters have 25% or even up to 50% of the work. So anything you are curious about feel free to ask (and then use the receipts in BG)

    part 1 part 2 Someone wise once said "life without love is meaningless" perhaps I snapped when I said that. After breaking up with @Hylia in March, in the wee-hours of my anniversary celebrations, I discovered he had a ring for me, as a gift. I already married him once, gave him full custody of our three children, Tori, Mariah and Sylk Jr. and left his world for good, but going through the divorce, knowing what it meant to be away from him, knowing who I was without him... I knew I could not go back. I left with my fingers bare that night. Needless to say, Hylia and I have remained excellent friends since, our number one priority will always be our kids. But I still see that ring box sitting on the desk in his living room everytime I go to visit the kids. Does he still love me? I wonder. Despite the doubts, I was persistent to stay single there after, even though guys were coming left and right I decided that I needed some time off, ofcourse @Jae kept texting me, @Aidan. kept leaving flowers at my door, and @Winnie. kept stalking me, but I was done with men. I was done with all of them. I even deleted the picture of @SWINΞ I had kept when I had grown quite the crush on him. It felt liberating. Something was different in me, I felt new, even my friends @Arya and @Mitski said so. It's a funny thing really, it's easy to be in your world, build it exactly to tend to your needs, easy to be alone but we have a biological desire to welcome another in this bubble that we've built. Nature's way to bend you. So it made complete sense when i met someone, it was the universe's way of telling me, the time was right. My October nights were suddenly filled with conversation about love and life, talk that went on till the sun came up, even though we both had work we didn't care. His words were so beautiful, the way he spoke, his thoughts, his mind, it amazed me. I had never felt such a fire before, except maybe with Hylia. But this was so much more. Still I was scared, I did not want to lose him. I guess after losing so many people in my life. I really wanted this to work. I have not told him yet, but I feel alot of love for him, yes I love him. And I wanna tell him, soon. But uncertainty still echoes at the far back of my mind, Does he still love me? To be continued....

    Been thinking of doing this for a while so here it is This ranking will not include Y Kant Tori Read or Midwinter Graces or Gold Dust as I personally do not consider them main albums toward her discography Therefore 13 albums will be included in this ranking from my least fave to most fave - And I will be pointing out some of my fave tracks from each album 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 So that is that If you have never checked out Tori before or have thought about doing it I would highly encourage it I think her discography has something for everyone and for sure something that everyone can relate to Thanks again to @Hylia for introducing me to her

    "I Don't Know Her!": Fantastic Albums You Might Not Know! Give 'Em a Chance! I'm going to attempt to use this blog to give credit to albums which, in my opinion, are underrated or just unknown in general. You may not like my choices, and that's okay! But trust me when I say you can find beauty in any art if you give it a chance <3 This Entry's Underrated Album: Rabbits on the Run by Vanessa Carlton Vanessa Carlton first made her appearance on the pop scene with the massive hit "A Thousand Miles," which is known now a days for being a cult classic more than an actual chart topper. To many, this song was Vanessa Carlton's only notable song, cementing her status as a "one-hit-wonder." Many people were not even aware that the single was accompanied by the debut album Be Not Nobody, assuming that the single was the only work released to the public. However, not only did she create one album, but five albums in total. Vanessa, like many other popstars at first, was a slave to the image that her label concocted for her. The music she desired to create was not something the general public or the record label was interested in. Her first three albums were specifically pop, generally following the same pattern. While artistic growth in terms of complexity and writing styles were still strikingly prevalent as the albums progressed from her first, second (Harmonium), and third albums (Heroes and Thieves), nothing really prepared her small group of fans to the shift she would take in her fourth. Finally able to release music she was truly interested in, Vanessa began to craft what is, in my humble opinion, her greatest work to this date. After a long hiatus that spanned 2007 to 2011 (release year), Rabbits on the Run was finally available to the public. The album itself spawned no successful singles, it received good reviews by critics. Stephen Erlewine from AllMusic remarked that "This [was] music made with no audience in mind: it is strikingly personal." And it shows. Carlton shifted drastically from pop music directly to an indie-like approach. What this album aesthetic feels like to me: When I listen to this album I feel a strong sense of wondering and peace. It really has the ability to draw out very raw and personal emotions from deep within, allowing me to mull them over. Sound dramatic? Probably. But it is the best way to describe how I feel during this album. When I imagine a good aesthetic for this album, I picture a quiet night after a long, taxing day full of emotion. In a cabin by the woods during spring, with cold rain tapping gently on the window, a glass of wine in hand, a good book, and warm blankets to cuddle up in. Or possibly taking a walk in a mysterious enchanting forest. A Brief Track by Track Review: Carousel A beautiful way to begin the album. This song is very light-hearted and hopeful about finding new love after it is lost. (7/10) I Don't Want to Be a Bride A summery song about finding your true love, but not wanting to have to "wear white" to spend forever with them. The imagery used in this song is well crafted and is showcased by Vanessa's warm vocals. (8/10) London This is the song that truly began my love of Vanessa. Not only is this one of, if not the best songs on the album, but it also happens to be one of my favorite songs of all time. To me, the lyrics are extremely relatable and thought provoking. "I've never been so sure that after all these years I'll never learn that heavenly creatures never come," Vanessa sings as she pours her heart out into the mic. This song is about feeling fooled by a relationship, love, or crush. The narrator feels tired of waiting and searching for that special someone, lamenting that she is wasting away her time waiting for her "new age." (10/10) Fairweather Friend A feathery song about an old lover/friend who only seems to think about fame or the luxuries of life. Vanessa knows that this person is only faking it through life without really ever facing reality. (6/10) Hear the Bells One of the more mysterious songs on the album, "Hear the Bells" is a song that wrestles with the vagueness of life and the difficulties of life. Rampant metaphors are seen through this song, as Vanessa moves through the different ways she searches for an answer. This track has a charm about it that is hard to explain, which may have something to do with its overall unexplained overall message. However, this could be a perfect metaphor for life itself: not sure how to figure it out, but it is fascinating to try. (8/10) Dear California This song is the closest this album gets to pop as a whole. Its deep lyrics are contrasted breezily with an upbeat and danceable rhythm. I can't help singing along to this song or tapping my foot when it comes on my shuffle. Great song to sing in the car! "But he loves me as I leave, so I've gotta go!" (9/10) Tall Tales for Spring This. This is the song that is arguably the crowning jewel of the album. Deliciously mischievous with wicked lyrics and an involved instrumental, this song conjures the almost cynical side of the phenomena of love, life, spirituality, and "madness of the heart." Truthfully, I'm not sure exactly what this song is truly trying to tell the listener. However, this is what I believe makes it so intriguing. Production wise, this is the most intense song of the album, which comes as an insane jolt of energy compared to its rather calm and easy sister songs. If a listener was to pick only one song to listen to from this album, I'd highly suggest this one. This song and its counterpart In the End are magnificent and crown the album with grace and pride. (10/10) A few choice lyrics that happen to be some of my favorite: "The wicked in me is surely the wicked in you. We pray to a ghost that we've never met. Time turns for a cure from the scientists for Madness of the heart." "Hawking will tell us no tall tales this spring, Our minds hold the ciaos that started everything." Get Good Taking it down a notch after the previous song, this piece reminds me of a rainy day in a cafe. The topic is recovery after a rough patch in life. Vanessa encourages a friend to take a minute, breathe, and take a moment "to get good again." (8/10) The Marching Line A lone piano starts off this track, capturing attention immediately. This song slowly swells like the slow anxiety of walking up to your destiny and future. While this is the track that is most somber, it is by no means a dud. Essentially, Vanessa reflects on how her future is calling and she must leave all of what she knows behind in order to fulfil her life. She will sail on a ship with no captain, off into the grey seas. "Fortune tellers, fortunes tell her..." (9/10) In the End Never fails to give me chills. This is the best way to end the album. I had mentioned previously that this was the counterpart to Tall Tales for Spring, this is because the instrumental is TTFS slowed down and given a more ambient sound. While the song itself is considerably short and only has a handful of lyrics, it is easily the most haunting and magical track on the album. In the End reflects on how death is inevitable and unavoidable, after all it's the way of all things. As I listen to this song, I imagine sinking deep into a black, peaceful ocean. And with this song the album comes to a close. (10/10) Highlights of the Album Tall Tales for Spring, London, In the End, The Marching Line, & Dear California Overall Rating: 7.8/10 Thank you for reading my first blog post! Hopefully if this goes well I'll do more!

    Growing up, I always wanted to be a teacher. I played school instead of house, and I loved helping my friends with their homework so I could practice for the future. So many of my classmates hated being quizzed about life after high school, but it never bothered me because I had a plan. I'm very indecisive about many aspects of my life, but this is one area I never had to worry about until now. Last summer, I finally began my teaching classes after two years of general education and I was optimistic at first but have slowly realized that it isn't for me. The more I learn about it, I'm discovering that it isn't what I thought it would be at all and I want nothing to do with it anymore. It almost feels like a divorce in a way, because I've wanted to do this for so long and I've completely fallen out of love with it and don't see myself ever getting back to that honeymoon phase. I had this unrealistic image of teaching in my head where I would stroll into the classroom like Mary Poppins and have an intellectually-stimulating conversation with my students, and everything I've been learning lately completely goes against that. I've discovered that I hate being in front of a room, and I'm not equipped to deal with all of the issues that students, schools, and teachers face. It's 90% babysitting demon spawn and preparing for testing, which is completely different than I thought it would be and I don't have a passion for that. I also don't want to have a job that I have to keep thinking about after hours. I want to have time for myself and not be constantly stressed out. What once made me hopeful now makes me physically sick, and it's scary because this was my life plan and now I don't know where to go from here. However, in some ways it's liberating to admit that I'm over it because I'm finally allowed to imagine other possibilities. I'm not mentally, socially, or emotionally prepared for the job requirements of teaching, and it's not even something I'm willing to work on over time because I have zero interest in the profession anymore. Even if I had what it takes, I still wouldn't want to do it. It doesn't matter what school, age group, or subject, I just want to get out of the field entirely ASAP. It's actually astounding how quickly I went from being fully invested to trying to fake it to blatantly not caring in my classes. If I weren't locked into classes that I'm paying a fortune for, I would have ghosted months ago. Right now I'm just sticking it out until the semester is over. Ideally I would do something with writing because I'm good at it and I enjoy it, but I don't know if I could realistically provide for myself that way. I don't plan on building a family so I'll only need to worry about taking care of myself, but still. I haven't told many people about my change of heart because I know they're going to think I'm crazy if I drop education and go for English only, even though it would make me far happier than what I'm doing right now. I see the way people react every time my sister changes her major (she's on number 4) and it would be huge fodder for gossip especially since everyone who knows me knows that I've always wanted to be a teacher. I feel like people won't accept that I've changed my mind, and will try to convince me to keep doing something I don't care about anymore just because it fits the image of me they have in their heads. Everyone is going to be completely blindsided because I've never shared any of this out loud, and they're going to assume it's a rash impulse and not something I've thought about in depth. They're going to try to convince me I'm still in love with my spouse even though there's no feeling anymore and I'm ready to start seeing other people. I recently transferred to a private college after graduating from community college and I like it here but the main reason I chose it is because of its reputation among schools. When principals hire teachers, alumni from my current college go to the top of the pile. But if I don't want to teach anymore, it doesn't make sense for me to keep going here with how much it costs. I'll be sad to leave especially since I enjoy the campus culture and I've made a good amount of friends, but my heart says I should go. I can study English only at a public school for a fraction of the cost I'm paying right now for English and education at a private school. I just don't know how to bring it up with my family since preparing for the spring semester isn't very far away at all and I don't know if there's still time, and something tells me they're not going to respect my feelings. I think it's better for me to realize this now than to go through grad school and get locked into student teaching. I have an appointment to make my spring schedule at my current school literally any day now, and I have no idea what I'm going to tell them. "Hey, I'm dipping because I don't care about my major anymore and I can study something cheaper elsewhere" probably won't go over very well. I don't know why I decided to post this, especially since I barely come here anymore, but I guess I just wanted to hear people's opinions. If anyone has ever decided to change their major or career after thinking it's what they wanted to do all their life, I'd love to hear how it worked out for them or what they're doing now. I need as much insight as I can get. For those of you who have interacted with me, what career fields could you envision me in? Serious answers only, please.

    I was making this list for another site since I want to keep track from now on, and as I've done before I thought I might as well post it here too This list is constructed just from memory really, so there may be a couple of mistakes, and they are ordered by U.S./Canadian release dates rather than the order that I saw them (which would be pretty much impossible to recall). 1996 (birth year): n/a 1997: n/a 1998: Antz 1999: Tarzan Pokemon: The First Movie Toy Story 2 2000: Dinosaur 2001: Pokemon 3 Monsters, Inc.

    Top 5 Albums 05. Taylor Swift - Reputation 04. Lorde - Melodrama 03. Goldfrapp - Silver Eye 02. The Killers - Wonderful Wonderful 01. Ryan Adams - Prisoner Artists that disappointed me Haim started so well with a clip of Right Now before the release of the first single. It was so raw and emotional. However, later it turned out the song was reworked for the album. Many songs are too light and jolly. The worst part is that they sound the same. It isn't a bad album overall, but after a cool debut, I expected more. This was too commercial for Haim. The 4th album of Hurts becomes even more commercial sounding. Songs have cliche lyrics and basic production. Hurts are the best when they get darker lyrically and production wise.

    S W E E T E N E R Ariana Grande first day listen review 1. Raindrops (An Angel Cried) It's kind of difficult to review this song. She sounds absolutely gorgeous, of course, but it's a very short track with very little to it. It's difficult for me to fully rate or score intros, outros, or interludes. 2. Blazed (featuring Pharrell Williams) Pharrell is one of those producers that has a very distinct style. It is very evident in this song. Some people hate his productions, other love it – I'm somewhere in between. I think this song works. It reminds me a bit of his 'Happy', but with a subtle yet bubblier vibe to it. Ariana's vocalizations, layers, and harmonizations are really gorgeous. I enjoy this song a fair amount. I imagine I'll bop to it more as I listen to the album, but it didn't give me tingles or anything. 3. The Light Is Coming (featuring Nicki Minaj) Nicki's involvement in this song is extremely unneeded. She fit so well into 'Side to Side' and even had multiple verses throughout the song. It was a true collaboration. In this song, however, Nicki raps an intro verse and you forget she was even apart of it at all once the song starts going in. This is a weird song. It's catchy but not really in the type of way you want to bop to it. The chorus has been described as annoying and tragic. I think that's a little harsh, but it can be a bit irritating. I think the beat is funky and the verses have a lot of flavor to it. Definitely one of my lesser liked tracks on the album, but it's not terrible, imo. 4. R.E.M. I'm honestly not surprised that this is Ari's favorite song at the moment. I noticed that she used a sample from Imogen Heap in a later song in the album, and although it is not this one, I feel like 'R.E.M.' is like a marriage between Pharrell's funky R&B, repetitive productions and the electronic, dreamlike quality of Imogen's music. The song is smooth and sensual yet quick; Ari switches between spitting out lyrics and gorgeously arranged layered vocals. Although there are various hooks, the song itself is a little here and there, adding to the dream-like quality of it. I think it's brilliant and is my current favorite. 5. God Is A Woman This is probably my favorite single released thus far. Ariana mixes a little bit of R&B/Hip-Hop in the verses with the pop, sonically sound vocals of the choruses. This is one of the few songs where she truly goes off on the vocal performance. I think 'God Is A Woman' was the perfect follow-up to 'No Tears Left To Cry'. It follows a modern pop sensibility but steps it up a notch. This entire album is a little more chill, but 'God is a Woman' has a lot of oomph to it. A bop, tbh, and in my top 5, probably. It's solid and I hope it gets rejuvenated on the charts. 6. Sweetener Boy this chorus was disappointing. The song starts with a really vibrant and light-hearted beat. The verses are full of content and the pre-choruses are really sweet and I quite like the piano accompaniment during those moments. However, the chorus just threw me off and it's just... dumb. This might grow on me, and it has enough positive qualities for me to not skip it during my listen-throughs. But it's definitely low on the rating scale. 7. Successful Again, the chorus had be going "huh?", but the instrumental to this song is so interesting, I vibed with it immediately. It's really hard for me for me to pinpoint what it exactly it reminds me of. It almost reminds me of like... 2000s video game music? I wish I could articulate it some more, but all I know is that I really love it. Ariana's vocals are really gorgeous, of course – particularly in the "it's a surprise / surprise" parts. Some of the vocal arrangements in some sections actually reminded me a bit of Destiny's Child or something? The lyrics of the chorus caught me off guard. Upon first listen they seem narcissistic and not related to the rest of the song, but I'll have to look at the lyrics and see if Ari explains this song at all. This is an odd song to describe and pin down, but I adore it a lot. I'll be bopping to it. 8. Everytime (Now thanks to both Britney and Ariana I will continue to think that 'everytime' is one word...) I feel like this is a very standard, uptempo ballad-y type pop song you would expect on an Ariana record. However, I think it's a very good one. It kinda reminds me of 'Sometimes' from Dangerous Woman, not because they sound alike or about the same thing, but I think they serve kind of the same purpose. I actually found some relief when this song came on because it is very accessible. I think the lyrics are very intriguing and honest, though. "I get drunk pretend that I'm over it / self-destruct / show up like an idiot" was a line that grabbed me. It actually reminded me as the opposite scenario of 'New Rules' by Dua. I quite like this one a lot. 9. Breathin The beginning jingle and jangles reminded me of Gold Panda immediately. I think it is no surprise (considering that the GP is already latching onto it) that it could be a contender for the next single. I think it's something of a No Tears Left to Cry 2.0. but with its own flavor, of course. It reminds me a lot of other types of pure pop songs released in the past couple years, but people are still here for. It's got that Ali Payami (Taylor's 'Style' and Ari's 'Love Me Harder') feeling to it. Something of a tropical flavor. Which is all good stuff. I love the sound. It's catchy and it bops. That being said, I love the actual message. Ariana explained it was about anxiety/anxiety attacks. ("People tell me to medicate") You can hear muffled voices/crowds during the verses and it has a tender side to it's message. Not only does the breathing calm her down, but it is her new lover: "but you tell me every time". 10. No Tears Left To Cry This is a bop and a classic. Not much to say about it anymore since it's been out for months. I latched onto it quickly and listened to it over and over. That being said, I have a hard time connecting first singles to the album when it's finally released. It always feels... detached somehow. It still works in the vibe of the album, don't get me wrong, but it somehow still sounds... separate? 11. Borderline (featuring Missy Elliot) We return to the Pharrell side of the album. This had a little more urban-electronic flavor to it. This is a pretty middle-of-the-road song for me, and it's probably one I will forget about when I'm not listening to the album on repeat anymore. However, I do enjoy it a bit. It's a smooth jam and it's fun to listen to. Not necessarily a "turn up" bop, but I think its placement in the album serves its purpose. 12. Better Off I don't have much to say about this song in depth but I really, really like it. It's a really tender, bittersweet ballad that tells an emotional story. I wish it was a bit longer, especially the string accompaniment towards the end, but that's okay. A very solid song. 13. Goodnight N Go Along with 'Breathin', I which this song's intro was incorporated into the song a bit more. The beginning of this song has a starlight, almost chiptune-esque twinkle to it before the "beat" drops. This is one of my favorite songs on the album, for sure. It feels very magical and intimate. I love how that the verses don't follow the same arrangement. The second verse is just... spectacular. The music falls away to make way for Ariana's vocals, which are soaring up in a vulnerable, sweet head voice. It fits so well with the lyrics, which are narrative in nature. 14. Pete Davidson I actually like this song, but it's too bad it's too short. It has a nice flow to it, with a sweet nature to it. But it just kind of fades away fifty seconds into it when I just wanted it to go on. I don't think people can say this is song is bad (because of its namesake), but I would definitely say it's unfulfilling. 15. Get Well Soon Wow! On my third listen of this song I realized that its style reminds me a lot of her debut album, actually. It has a lot to do with the tempo, beat, and piano. I will say that the entire album makes such stellar use of layering Ari's harmonizing vocals, but this track is a perfect example of how she and the producers do it. If you just stop and pay attention you'll notice that her vocals are everywhere on this song. It's songs like this that makes me feel like Ariana is really finding her footing as who she is as an artist. I don't know who is making a song that sounds like this right now. It is a stellar closer and one of my favorites as well. (although idk why there's a minute of silence at the end of the track) Favorite Tracks: (not including the two official singles) - R.E.M. - Goodnight N Go - Breathin - Get Well Soon - Successful

    I don't hate anything on this list and I don't even think they're bad in some cases - these are simply things that, in my opinion, get considerably more acclaim than they deserve. Also, just to be clear, I'm only naming things that I'm reasonably familiar with and thus have a valid opinion on, so I'm not gonna name anything like Twitter that I don't use. Idris Elba - The man is a plank. Granted, I've never seen The Wire, but the guy is just way too fond of the speak very very quietly and then START SHOUTING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS RIGHT IN YOUR FACE routine. The Lord of the Rings trilogy Motorboating a woman's breasts - This has just always struck me as incredibly childish. It's like a sexual act somebody who barely understands sex would fantasize about. Shadow of the Colossus, a game on PlayStation 2 Sunrises - They simply aren't that fucking magical, people. Fargo, the movie - I love the Coen bros., but I've never really taken to this movie. It's mostly just mean spirited with a handful of amusing moments. Tambourines - Has a tambourine literally ever improved any musical number in the history of mankind? I think you'll find the answer is no. It's essentially the instrument that was created so the talentless children would have something to do in their elementary school Christmas pageant. Eating outside (picnics and that ilk) The Chanukah Song on SNL - I think Adam Sandler can be funny sometimes, but his constant cracking up at his own jokes during this bit kinda kills it for me.
