I’ve got a day of writing bytes of music. Yes, I realize how I spelled that, it was on purpose. Getting together to do some final runs thru the song we’ve got for Ugly Betty. Then it’s creation time for jingles and such. A fun filled day of music!
Before I get to that though, I gotta say I picked up Tap Tap Revenge 2 for the iPhone. I’m amazed at how fun that game is for something so simple. What’s crazy is that I thought I was doing really well with the game until I posted the score I got (which told me I hit 100% of the targets) and yet my high score is about 180,000 points lower than the top score posted. I’m not sure how I can hit everything and not score better. I’ll have to figure that out.
It’s Tap Tap that brought me to today’s pick. Tap Tap also got me to thinking about Hero Unexpected and how I’m gonna have to reach out to Tapulous and get it to them. As well as Rock Band which is now allowing artists a way to get their music into that online store as well.
Getting back to Flyleaf whose song is part of the game. I was immediately taken by vocalist’s voice. She’s got a voice that fits perfectly into the soundscape created by this band. Soaring with a great hint of power and grit. I would liken it to the singer of Evanescence. They don’t sound the same but they have a similar effect on me in that I really like what they’re doing. They rock hard.
Once the chorus kicks in the song really takes off. The triplet quarter note pounding of the rhythm guitars is super catchy. Along with the drums as well. It’s a little hard to really get to the meat of the bass on the speaker of an iPhone, but I’m thinking it’s there as well.
Apparently this song is starting to take off at radio which is understandable. It would be great to eventually share the stage with them at a festival. Who knows, it could happen.
Until then, watch out because once this song gets into your ear hole you will want to hear it again and again and again…
