I really enjoy this song because there is a large amount of diversity in the sounds. It took 2 very different singers and put them together in one song, it made a very different but good song. Rap is not my ideal choice for music but mixing the styles of music was a great way to attract people that enjoy other genres.
Strong emotions we all have wont go away, but music is the closest we have to that escape. Whenever my anxiety gets bad, music is there to calm me down. When my emotions want to overtake my mind, music is there to relax me. A lot of the time people don't see how much music affects our lives but it's some peoples everything. Most lyrics are the artists feeling that we can connect to. Connecting to the lyrics is extremely important to get that sense of relief. Once your find the emotion in the words they sing that you feel or have felt, its like knowing you're not the only one. When someone can't find words to fit how you feel, music always will.
One of the things that irk me is when people think that just because I like a certain type of music, they can judge who I am as an individual. When I listen to music, it usually matches my mood but everyone experiences various moods and listen to different music. One has no right to judge my personality for little things like music genres. Next time you call someone a name because of their music taste, remember that these little things don´t define a person.
Anywhere you go, there will probably some form of music. Walking down the street while someone drums on a bucket, or going into an elevator with that annoying beat of elevator music, there is a form of music in one way or another. It can have many effects people and their emotions which can have an outcome of happiness and productivity. A lot of the time while I am playing volleyball, reading, working, ect, it improves my abilities in that activity. I believe that music has a great influence on us but it will always depend on the person.
As a feminist, this is one of my favourite songs. The whole song is telling a story of Ariel, the lead singers, experience of being a female musician that is not in the genre of pop. She says in the song "Who gave us the idea 'female fronted' is a genre anyway?" Generally, most people think that most rock singers are male or are more masculine, but that gives us no right to downgrade those who do not fit that description and that is pretty much what Icon For Hire is presenting in this song. Double standards is a huge problem in this generation so its about time someone calls people out on it.
