Song Lyric Sunday. Monster feelings.

It Sunday and time for Song Lyric Sunday from Jim Adams. Today’s prompt is (Brutal, Cruel, Frenzy, Savage, Violent ) suggested by Melanie B Cee of sparksfromacombustiblemind..

All the songs chosen to day are chosen because they are the ones I thought of first and also because I like them all .

Olivia Isabel Rodrigo (born February 20, 2003) is an American actress, singer, and songwriter. She is known for her roles as Nini Salazar-Roberts on the Disney+ series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and as Paige Olvera on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark. Rodrigo signed with Interscope and Geffen Records in 2020 and released her debut single “Drivers License” in January 2021. It reached number one in multiple countries, including the United States.

Her critically acclaimed debut album, Sour, was released on May 21, 2021. It was preceded by two more singles, “Deja Vu” and “Good 4 U“, with the latter becoming her second single to debut at number one in the US.

“Brutal” is one of eleven songs from Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album Sour. The song resents the idea that one’s teenage years are their best years and shares a sentiment of teenage frustration.

Rodrigo and the track’s producer Dan Nigro wrote the song in two weeks as a last minute addition to the album after the unprecedented success of her debut single “drivers license“.

Kate Anna Rusby (born 4 December 1973)is an English folk singer-songwriter from PenistoneBarnsley, West Riding of Yorkshire, England. Sometimes called the “Barnsley Nightingale”, she has headlined various British national folk festivals, and is one of the best known contemporary English folk singers. In 2001 The Guardian described her as “a superstar of the British acoustic scene.”In 2007 the BBC website described her as “The first lady of young folkies”. She is one of the few folk singers to have been nominated for the Mercury Prize.

Underneath The Stars was Kate Rusby’s sixth album released in 2003. Cruel features on the album and is a traditional song from Lancashire. I’m not sure exactly when this performance is from but it’s somewhere between 2003 and 2008. Rusby sings many traditional songs, songs that are steeped in history, the album also features The Blind Harper, her favourite traditional song. Follow the link below to find out more about it:

Bahari is an American alt pop,electronic and dark pop musical duo, previously a trio, composed of Ruby Carr and Natalia Panzarella. Sidney Sartini left the band in 2018.

18-year-old Southern California singer, songwriter carolesdaughter, born Thea Taylor, translates turmoil and disorder into oddly soothing pieces of alternative pop. Throughout her life she often felt like an outsider where she would spend a large part of her turbulent youth hopping between schools before eventually deciding to drop out, this lead to her widening her musical palette and stumbling upon the world of punk, hardcore, and goth. During this time she went on multiple trips to rehab before discovering that music was what she wanted to pursue which allowed her to become the unapologetic heroine we know and love today.

Her latest track is titled violent and came about because of a toxic relationship she was apart of and this track was her cathartic release that allowed her pent up resent to finally be released. Somber 808s melt together with a raw acoustic guitar melodies as she delivers these vengeful and fury filled lyrics with her ethereal vocal, adding another spellbinding dynamic to the violently innocent piece. This is only the beginning of carolesdaughter who’s quirkily haunting and demonic sound stands out amongst the crowd in the best way imaginable.

Within the Ruins is an American progressive metalcore/deathcore band from Westfield, Massachusetts, United States. They are currently signed to eOne Music and Good Fight Music. The group has released six studio albums and three EPs.

    Willow you outdid yourself today. This is my time listening to Olivia Rodrigo, but I am already hooked on her. Kate Rusby has a lovely voice and I could listen to her all day long. Th Bahari song was enjoyable and very peaceful. carolesdaughter was a pleasant surprise. I had no idea that there was such a thing as being a deathcore band and although I think this was the worst song, I could tell that that they are really good musicians.

      I am glad you liked them Jim I agree, deathcore is a huge stretch for my tastes too but we need open minds don’t we, I love all the others though 💜

    All new songs to me. I saw them when I was looking up the prompt words, but didn’t know the artists, so didn’t listen to them. Now, I have listened (except the screamo, not a fan🤷🏼‍♀️) and I thank you🥰🎶💃🏼

    In music, one can find every emotion known to man and woman 🙂👌

    I’m not familiar with most on your list but hey that’s the beauty of listening, and how music transforms one’s life.

    Each song / lyric touching upon a memory or etching new ones, in a journey that spans a lifetime.

    Enjoy your Tuesday Willowdot21 and be good, just like me 😲🙂

        Hi Andro it been an odd week so far and it’s only Tuesday! How are you? As for the football history and the odds are stacked against us! ☺️

        I am fine thank you my lovely friend, as I hope you are feeling giddy and hopeful that England are triumphant this evening.

        You know, we can actually play football really well when we’re not defending all the time :0) I’m thinking a 2 – 1 win should be a good result 🙂

        Stay Safe.

        Andro x
