So, since I listen to and know good music, modern pop music just doesn't do anything for me! As opposed to old music that satisfies and nourishes my soul, newer music is just crude little tunes that are basically only chorus so that they get stuck in your head! There might be a couple newer songs here or there that I can tap my foot to and get a feel for, but it just isn't the same as those oldies but goodies.
So over the years, I have discovered 5 modern pop hits that originally, were beautiful, old-timey classics! Some of these I bet you would have never known! All these songs have been popular hits on the radio, and I'm guessing that most people don't know their roots!
So take a look, and see if you can guess who the original artist of these songs were!
The song, 'Me Love', when slowed down, has always struck a resemblance to one of my favorite songs from the 1970's, written by one of the greatest rock bands of all times...can you figure it out just by listening to it?
It was also covered by Rod Stewart in 1977. The original artist was P. P. Arnold in May 1967. But my favorite artist did it in December of 1967.
Ok I'm off my soapbox!
Rod's music video for "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" is so fun and spirited! I also love that it's a guy asking a girl "So honey do you think I'm sexy?" as opposed to a slutty girl asking that same question full of provocation and seduction.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I hope it will inspire you to broaden your music horizons, and take a deeper look into the music that has changed this world!
