Ugh Alicia Keys….
ugh I don’t like her besides a couple of her songs and that song If I ain’t got you is OVERRRATED as ever and no I don’t find the piano part of that song amazing
Anyways she had a single called It doesn’t mean anything which is the same as If I ain’t got you. I don’t even like if I ain’t got you all that much and I ABSOLUTELY DESPISE THE MUSIC VIDEO. she has a gangster boyfriend and he gets arrested apparently “accidentally’ or maybe he really is a drug dealer or whatever the reason he got arrested. that part just pissed me off. the part where he was like oh I gotta see my girl or call her or something to the police ESPECIALLY PISSED ME OFF. he’s like scum. I don’t like the fact that she’s going out with scum. I don’t care if he got arrested accidentally or if he really did committ the crime in the MV… that’s the only vibe I get.
here’s a part of the lyrics for if i ain’t got you… wait my mistake it’s” it doesn’t mean anything.”they’re like the same except they’re paraphrased… it’s the same idea.
All at once, I had it all But it doesn’t mean anything now that you’re gone From above, seems I had it all But it doesn’t mean anything since you’re gone Now I see myself through different eyes, it’s no surprise Being alone would make you realize When it’s over, all in love is fair I should’ve been there, I should been there, I should’ve should’ve All at once, I had it all But it doesn’t mean anything now that you’re gone From above, seems I had it all But it doesn’t mean anything since you’re gone I know I push you away What can I do that will save our love? Take these material things They don’t mean nothing It’s you that I want All at once, I had it all But it doesn’t mean anything now that you’re gone From above, seems I had it all But it doesn’t mean anything since you’re gone (I should’ve been there, I should been there, I should’ve should’ve) All at once, I had it all But it doesn’t mean anything now that you’re gone From above, seems I had it all But it doesn’t mean anything since you’re gone
I didn’t copypaste it over and over. it’s just that repetitive. OH WAIT UP she has another song that is a single tha thas the SAME DAMN MESSAGE it’s called NO ONE. she’s so boring and dull as it is musically but on top of that …adding insult to injury she releases singles with the same message OVER AND OVER.
I used to think she was talented.. by that I mean 5 years ago lol. Now I don’t think she is or at least not as much as I did before… like her piano is not that good. obviously people will eventually reach that conclusion once they expose themselves to more music… I really hate how the piano thing in if i ain’t got you is like praised and loved by everyone… it’s like… okay so what? level. I just hate that song.. .so damn overrated. I think she just pisses me off because she’s overrated not because she has no talent though i must say if you start comparing her with other people… it’s gonna be alittle rough on her lol. So her song if i ain’t got you is really overrated and that ALSO includes the piano part of it so that’s why i get irritated by her.
Now if we’re talking about shiina ringo or tokyo jihen song then most likely that piano part will woo me and i will listen to the song a hundred times over just to expereience the piano part. they’re so brilliant. I lvoe the jazzy piano thing… I just love shiina ringo’s music compoisition in general. it’s just brilllllllliant. she’s so young too… writing songs when she’s 15 etc.
Another brilliant pianoplayer is sung hoon from brown eyed soul who performs on immotral song. I think for his first 2 songs or three songs he incorporated the piano but damn that shit was brilliant and this past week when he did the tribute song to kim gun-mo he played the piano with his backturned to it which I KNOW Took mad practic eunless he was just playing simple chords? I don’t know. well he aimed to become a professional pianist at one point so obviously he’s really good. OH AND he jammed it out with th epiano at the end of the performance anyhooo for this week with kim gung-mo so… MOVING CAPTIVATING is this…
something ifound online!
and why is it that the people who do covers of her song fallin do better singing with the first note with fallin than her.. even kim nayoon on kpop star was more powerful and reached the note. lol. BUT still I do like that song… alicia’s version. like all the big black people on american idol always make it to hollywood with that song lol and obviously they do a more powerful first note with fallin. Or maybe alicia keys just wants to make her first note in that song more subtle and weak as opposed to big and powerful that cover people do. or her voice is just weak? but then again if you over do-it it’s pretty comical
I thought of awonderful song with a similar messagewhich is one more time one more chance by none other than yamazaki masayosyhi-san. This song is more pathetic and emotional in comparison and the lyrics are much better. Now that I think Abt it there’s prob a lot of songs with this message. It makes me hate her song that much mored
AND NOW there’s an english cover version by BENI! def check that out
