    Sam 6 jui. – John Legend


    Last night, American R&B singer John Legend was in Paris in order to promote his latest songs as well as some good old ones. He played in the mythical venue l’Olympia. Many people had come to sing him live and sing along with him.

    The opening part had already started when I arrived. 2 girls were singing and playing guitars. I couldn't catch their names nor could I hear what they were saying because of the noise that was around me. Most of the people were talking, and others were trying to listen, but they all seemed to be enjoying the girls’ songs.

    John Legend arrived on stage at 20.20. People were very happy to see him. They were cheering and applauding him. His band was made of a 2 female backup singers, a drummer, a keyboard player, a guitarist, a bassist and John’s grand piano.
    He started with his now classic song Used to Love U. The whole venue sang back the words to him, and he was really impressed to see that we knew all the words. …

    Great show, as always... Think it was pretty much identical to Friday's concert on South Beach, except Estelle didn't join him for No Other Love.

    Some of the songs are sprinkled with sequence's from other known songs, like Green Light has a Sexual Eruption-part in it. Also there's one song (can't remember which one right now) that borrows a little bit from Lollipop.

    Number One is heavily alternated -- in the beginning of the song…
  • Top Ten: March 4-11, 2007

    14 Mar 2007, 03:02 by melbo

    I feel like writing about music, since I've been listening to a lot of new music lately. Not all of it is reflected on last week's chart, and since I spend a lot of time with my collection of 2500 songs on 'shuffle,' I don't usually have very high play counts for an individual artist in a week. But at any rate, here's an account of last week's top ten and what I am currently finding fascinating about them.

    1. Barenaked Ladies - 53 plays
    BNL have been around for longer than I've been listening to popular music, and they were a band that I've always kind of known and liked a bit, but I've never really listened to them. That changed last week, when I listened to a smattering of their career from my best friend's collection. They're a fun band and provided good background music while we were scrapbooking last weekend. I listened to a ton of different songs, but I think my favourite was Falling For The First Time.

    2. Céline Dion - 30 plays

    Arrivés avec Jean Mich' à la station Madeleine, je suis un peu appeuré puisqu'on etait un peu à la bourre . On marche vers le boulevard de la madeleine, puis on se dirige vers la gauche ... Comme indiqué sur le plan . Au bout de 2 minutes, une enorme pancarte "Olympia" : un frisson me parcouru : le premier concert dans cette salle mythique, ca impressione . C'est là . Inscrites en rouge vif sur le devant de la salle mythique, les 10 lettres forment le nom du génie du soir : John Legend est , et ce n'est pas un rève, bien là ce soir .

    On penetre dans la salle mythique, dans un autre monde, tellement d'ailleurs qu'on en oublie de laisser nos manteaux aux vestiaires . On penetre dans la salle : pas encore tout à fait pleine , à 20h03 . Apres quelques minutes dattente, Robin Thicke et sa troupe font leur entrée histoire d'assurer la premiere partie . Premiere chanson, c'est sympa …
  • I Love John Legend.

    I love John Legend. I seriously do. If I were a female, I would procreate with him so quick, he wouldn't even know I had his babies.

    *cough* Anyways, thank god for leaked albums. They keep me alive. I've been eagerly anticipating this album for a year now, and Once Again, I am not disappointed by this guy. Hah. Get it? Once Again? Get it? Ah, you don't get it.

    I fell in love with Save Room and with the new album out, I think I have some early candidates for favorites. However, i'll need another million listens before I'm certain.

    I really like:
    Heaven
    Each Day Gets Better
    P.D.A. (We Just Don't Care)
    Slow Dance
    Where Did My Baby Go

    ...Alright so I really like the whole album...

    Each Day Gets Better just brightened my day. It was a really nice song, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

    P.D.A. had a good piano intro, and the chorus was catchy.

    Slow Dance....something about the song. I really like it. A couple more listens and I'll figure it out.

    My only complaint: Show Me ran a bit long IMO.
