Hello once again inmates!

Bloody hell, part 177 of these posts already eh? And the beginning of a new month as well. Why, it feels like just yesterday I was inflicting my musical tastes and interests upon you poor people. In seriousness though, I appreciate you all humouring me over the years. I’m sorry to say the melancholy has returned a bit this week. I think there are numerous reasons for that at this point. I can’t say I’m the best at dealing with change. I’ve been feeling strangely isolated, which is absurd since I have friends and family everywhere around me. I just feel like I’m withdrawing into myself without even necessarily meaning to. It’s a hard mindset to describe. I’m unsure if the poems this week have shown any of that.

Well, let’s not worry and get on to the subject of todays post. I’ve chosen a very light-hearted and creative theme for this week, a bit of a boost for us all eh? Did anybody see the clue earlier on today? I admit it’s a little niche if you didn’t recognise the individual in the photo but hopefully I’ll get you up to speed today eh?

The musical theme for todays writing music post is… 10 Second Songs! Ok, I can hear you screeching already: “What the hell is that, you peculiarly short clown?”. You didn’t need to bring my height into this, but I’m going to explain. 10 Second songs is a well-known YouTube channel run by an undeniably talented bloke called Anthony Vincent from the USA. I’m not particularly well-versed in how he came to create the channel or his earlier works but he is one of the best “Cover” channels that I know of. It’s actually unfair to say covers, as Vincent has a method all of his. He will cover a song beginning in the creators own style and at various points he will switch to emulate a completely different artist while keeping to the lyrics. No genre is off the cards! So, he can go from a dour alternative style ala Linkin Park, to a country singer, a popstar or a rapper. He even puts joke bits in like random segments of Bollywood, bluegrass or dog sounds. He can often fit from 20-40 styles in one song. It’s really something to witness actually. I think a demonstration would help more than my mumbling wouldn’t it? Ok, let’s do it!

Please join me as we delve into the musical minds of 10 Second Songs!

10 Second Songs – In The End

10 Second Songs – Talk Dirty

10 Second Songs – Rap God

10 Second Songs – Dark Horse

10 Second Songs – Take On Me

And there we have it! What do you think eh? Those are among my personal favourites of Mr. Vincent’s videos, but certainly not all of them. I wasn’t going to regale you with every single one as that would mean you may not go and check out his channel. I absolutely want you to go and do that by the way. Show Mr. Vincent the love eh? After listening to his work, I’m sure you’ll agree that he deserves it! I’ll include a link to his channel just below here.
