Blogging Carnival, Topic Music
Hi guys I am so excited to share this blog with you because this blog will be apart of a bigger blog from my class. So my blog post is about music and I will be writing about a music author named Paige Buxton. she only has two songs called “Goosebumps” and the other is “No Time to Waste”. They are not very popular but Paige wrote her music so people could listen and she did not care about her fame. Paige was against bulling. That is another reason she wrote her music and a lot of people in the comments of her You tube videos say that she died doing what she loved. Paige was only 20 years old and she had a younger sister named Ashley. Paige was a great singer and people are always commenting on her videos and she mostly gets positive comments. I stumbled on her videos while sitting in a live stream and they mentioned about her mother and her sister walked up to them and her mom talked to him about her while her sister was playing with his dog. Many people since then have been going on her channel which her sister took over. Paige took a stand to bullies and she loved what she did.

My Favorite Music Group
Welcome! I’m about to reveal to you who my favorite musical band is… but don’t freak out when I tell you that they don’t make English music! Their name is BTS, known as “방탄소년단” or “Bangtan Sonyeondan” in Korea. As you can probably guess, they make Korean music. Before you ask the inevitable question: “Why do you listen to this if you can’t understand what they’re saying?” let me tell you that in Korea, English is very trendy and popular. Korean bands love to include a large amount of English words interspersed between all of the “confusing” Korean lyrics. Also, I’ll be here to answer some of your hypothetical questions, so don’t worry!
Question #1: What genre of Korean music does “BTS” make, and are they any good?
Answer: They make Korean Pop music (shortened to “K-Pop”) and are one of the best groups out there (I’m biased, of course)!
Question #2: What kind of band are they? Are they a dance group, an instrumental group, ect.?
Answer: A lot of their music is upbeat, but some of their songs are slow with great vocals being constant throughout every song! They are a seven-member boy band (yes, as most K-Pop bands are in Korea) and can dance really well!
Question #3: Are there any songs that you would recommend me to listen to?
Answer: This is a hard question… when it comes to music groups, referring the wrong song first can turn a person away from a really good group, simply based upon a first impression. If I had to choose, I would say listen to “Best of Me” on their newer album, Love Yourself 承 ‘Her’. That should start you off well, but then again, I don’t personally know your music tastes!
Question #4: Is this band popular in places other than Korea, or are you just one of their few fans from another country?
Answer: Yes, yes, yes! They are very popular around the world. A few years after their group debut, they started to gain worldwide fame and since have won the “Top Social Artist” award at the Billboard Music Awards, an American music award show!
Question #5: Does the language barrier make it hard to listen to, and are their lyrics even appropriate?
Answer: Well, yes, and no. The language barrier can make it quite awkward to listen to at first, but it’s pretty easy to become used to. As for appropriateness, BTS’ lyrics highly vary in their lyrical “content.” You see, as is the case in many countries, the main focus in pop music is “romance/love” music, which I don’t know if you’ll be opposed to. As for bad words, stay away from their older albums (or ask me for advice in choosing songs) and stick to their newer ones and you should be just fine! Most of their music is clean and sounds great!
Question #6: I’ve heard that these Korean guys can dance… is it true?
Answer: Yes, it most definitely is. BTS is great at pulling off incredible choreography to go along with their upbeat tracks. If I could recommend my personal favorite dance group, I would say “Speed.” Take a look at their dance practices if you can, they are just incredible!
If you read all of that, then wow, I’m impressed! I truly thank you for taking the time to read my long post about foreign music, and as always, have a great day!
I did a post about three of my favorite Christian artists—
My Favorite Music Artist(s)
Hey there!!! Today I am going to talk about a few of my favorite music artists. I say a few because I have come to the conclusion that I do not have one favorite artist. I was originally going to call this post ‘My Favorite Music Artist’ but obviously that wouldn’t work. That said, let’s get to the post.
Jordan Feliz is on the top of my favorites list. His music hits a cord in me and I love it. I fell in love with his song ‘The River’ and still listen to it with enjoyment. His music is rooted in the walks of faith that he has gone through in the past few years. The songs touch me because they talk about God’s faithfulness and blessings in our lives no matter the season that we are in. It is always nice to listen to music that reminds me God is always there. I am currently (as in while I am writing this) listening to Jordan Feliz’s newest album, Future. I could listen to this for forever :P.
Now for another favorite music artist.
Lauren Daigle has an amazing voice that is basically the equivalent of a Christian Adele. If Lauren Daigle and Adele did a duet it would shake the very earth we live on. Sadly that has not come to pass. Now, back to Lauren Daigle. She grew up in Louisiana and was immersed in a diverse range of music from a young age. Her worship songs have a unique sound to them that you won’t find anywhere else. How Can It Be, her debut album, has some amazing songs on it. I Am Yours and My Revival are two of my personal favorites.
Now for my last artist. It is actually a group.
This group has some of the most powerful worship music I have heard in my life. My cousin introduced me to them when I was going through a really hard time. The song she told me to listen to was Tremble. I listen to that song when I need to calm down before a competition or if I am feeling overwhelmed by something. The very first word of that song is peace. Last year they came out with a Spanish EP that included Tiembla (Spanish for Tremble) and another song I love, Bella Amor. Tremble is a powerful song full of praise to the Almighty God who cares for us.

My Music Vibe
I turn my head to see someone snapping their fingers at me, trying to get my attention. I take out my ear buds and the world snaps back into place and I notice what’s going on around me.
This is something that happens A lot! I am so deep into my music everything else fades away and I am in my own little world. Whether I am listening to Ed Sheeran in all his glory or some hard core rock or even the sound of someone rapping a hundred miles an hour. Whatever my vibe is, I am lost. I’ve entered this crazy world of music. Do you ever feel that way? Well, I do.
To be honest I don’t know what my favorite song is. It’s always changing. But one of my favs is Moondust by Jaymes Young. I love a lot of his music and Moondust is just one of his best in my opinion. He has two versions so if your interested in the song, make sure you listen to both versions.
I started listening to music at a young age. I think my first album was Toby Mac when I was like 4 or 5 and alot of Christian music followed. Then when I was 10 or so and Iphones and things were first being made (gosh I feel so old lol) we got an Ipad and that’s when I started watching YouTube videos about music and alot of music videos like Katy Perry who I thought was the best singer ever lol back then.
And that’s what I have on music 🙂
