Which Music Artist Inspires You Most? by badmrkt(m): 11:52am On Nov 09, 2011
music as we all know is the food to the soul,but paying close attention to the kind of music that is played now both foriegn and local you'll agree with me that our SOULS are starving because there's no good music that THEY can feed on.
everybody wants to sing but nobody makes good music anymore compare to the kind of music that was played in the past.
lately i've decided to listen to songs composed by our artist here in 9ja but to honest there's no good composer yet,expect for the few ones.i see the reason why no 9ja based artist have been able to win the GRAMMY,perhaps some day they will,but for now i don't think are ready for that yet.
below are the kind of music and the artists that get me inspired whenever i listen to their songs:
jazz:>>> YANI(tirbutes)
rap:>>> 2PAC & EMINEM(dear mama,2pac,space bound,eminem)
afro:>>>FELA KUTI(i no be gentle and many more)
gospel:>>>DON MOEN(God'll make a way and many more)
classic music:>>>>HANDELS(and glory and many more)
country music:>>>DOLYY PARTON,DON WILLIAMS ETC.(coat of many colours,broken hearts)
the list is endless,

Mostly classical artists/composers.
One of my favorites is Thomas Newman. His music is melancholic and but importantly they seem to have a life of their own as if an additional character to a movie.
Another would be James Howard Newton who is like an aural chameleon. Everytime he's different but my favorites pieces of his are his fantastical pieces. They are able conjure up pictures in my head.

Seriously, no hard feeling against Terry G, but assumin everyone are like me, He would av packed. In nigeria every nonsense is envy, there is this song I detaste so much, ALAJI. I stil can't figure why pple listen to it. Anyway, try Miranda lambert, am also a die-hard-fan of Keys

i don't care where the song comes from,but the amount of good messages it conveys.i'm very carefull when it comes to music,because over exposure to meaningless music can change your mind set.
