Fifth Harmony – Work from Home ft. Ty Dolla $ign

Posted by | Song Discovery | No Comments

Great bass line on this track, no doubt. Catchy beat carries the lyrics on this fun track. The video is nothing short of eye candy for the ladies. It is pretty simple to get lost in the beat and forget about the lyrics. The message visually is that the lead vocalist is in charge. Fifth Harmony has a history with successful tracks and I am sure this one will be nothing short of fame, as well.

Not really much you can dissect on this track other than a strong sexual undertone, great beat and really it just makes you want to jump out the door and get to the club. When Ty Dolla $ign comes in he really responds as a boss and just lays it down. The response quite clear, let my body do the work. Without further adieu enjoy this visceral and delicious video.

Alessia Cara – Wild Things

Posted by | Song Discovery | No Comments

This fun, young, energetic song has a pretty straight forward message. It is about being young making a name for yourself, making your life. Being hip to the beat and dancing to it at the same time. The entire song has a great message and great beat to dance too. Letting people know that it doesn’t matter whether you are ‘cool’ or having the comfort of being alone. Being told that you cannot be somewhere that you don’t belong—it really doesn’t matter. You are who you are, be who you want to be. Let people know that if it means being a rebel, to stand up for yourself, find comfort in the empty room and ‘carve your place into time’

At the end of the song there is an incredible message of hope it speaks directly to the youth—telling them that their fears they must face and ultimately sacrifice, be un-apologetically; yourself. As it has been said before young, wild and free. That is the message behind this beat and ultimately an uplifting one. Check it out and let us know what you think about this track!

Pillowtalk by Zayn

Posted by | Song Discovery | No Comments

Former 1Direction frontman releases his (highly anticipated) first single off forth-coming solo album. I think that the lyrics really capture exactly what his message was trying to convey. Below we have found an interview snippet about the new song from former 1D Zayn Malik.

Zayn Malik Explains The Real Meaning Behind ‘Pillowtalk’: It’s Not Only About Sex “It is about sex, there is obviously sex in a relationship. It’s not the whole incentive of the song though,” revealed the 23-year-old artist on Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning Show on Feb. 2. So if Zayn’s super hot song, “Pillowtalk,” is NOT all about sex, then what IS it about? “The actual intent of the song is even though you have great times in a relationship, you have really bad times as well but that’s what makes it worth while because you learn things and you go through experiences that bring you closer together.”

In an interview with the Sunday Times, former One Directioner Zayn Malik opened up about the, er, mature lyrical content on his debut solo single “Pillowtalk.” “Everybody has [it], and it’s something people wanna hear about. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very big part of life,” he stated. Personally, I’m over pop songs about romantic hetero-centric relations, but that’s just me.

According to the Daily Mail, Zayn may have wrote “Pillowtalk” while still with his ex, Little Mix member Perrie Edwards. A little awkward, if that’s the case, since Zayn’s new girlfriend Gigi Hadid stars in the music video.

The first time I heard this song was on The Voice (performance below)

I couldn’t believe it–had I heard this Regina Spektor song before? It turns out this song is older…regardless, I decided to post this song, in the spirit of timeless music; lasting forever.

Until next time…get LOUD AND NOISY!

Quintessential Bowie

Posted by | Industry News | No Comments

Hey Noisy Planet! As promised here is our quintessential David Bowie top ten list. We have scoured in music mayhem all morning–while mourning the demise of Bowie. How do pay tribute to such an icon? His name alone invokes a sense of mystery, awe and admiration. But alas, let’s get loud and noisy and make this Pop King proud!

1. “Space Oddity” (1969)

Inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, the song follows the unfortunate fate of Major Tom, an astronaut lost and drifting in space. Bowie’s breakout track became a hit in 1969, the year of the first Moon landing. It’s compelling and heartbreaking, putting a horrifying Ray Bradbury story line to a haunting melody.

2. “The Man Who Sold The World” (1970)

While younger fans may know the song thanks to Kurt Cobain’s haunting cover on Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged special, Bowie’s rendition was equally memorable, full of beautiful heartache, longing, and regret.

3. “Life on Mars?” (1971)

This song highlights Bowie’s multi-faceted talent, as he sings over a simple piano tune before the track builds with the help of a soaring string section. The song helped redefine rock in the 1970s and put Bowie firmly on the path to super-stardom.

4. “Changes” (1971)

Bowie was already famous in the U.K., but it wasn’t until “Changes” that he made an appearance on the U.S. charts in April 1972. He would eventually earn 25 entries on Billboard, including two No. 1 hits, “Fame” and “Let’s Dance.”

5. “Ziggy Stardust” (1972)

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars is a complex and perfectly executed concept album that not only introduced one of Bowie’s best and most indelible characters, Ziggy Stardust, but also brought songs like “Suffragette City” and “Rock and Roll Suicide” to the world.

6. “The Jean Genie” (1973)
After a worldwide tour as Ziggy Stardust, Bowie was re-born asAladdin Sane with “The Jean Genie” (originally released in 1972) as the lead single, introducing fans to the Iggy Pop-inspired character. The song has gone on to be one of Bowie’s most beloved hits.

7. “Fame” (1975)
Bowie was never beholden to one genre or style of music, instead easily slipping through electronic, pop, and rock before eventually landing on “plastic soul” with his 1975 album, Young Americans. As with the other styles, Bowie made it his own mixing funk and American soul music with a Brit pop aesthetic. The song “Fame” was co-written with Carlos Alomar and John Lennon, who knew something about fame.

8. “Heroes” (1977)
Bowie reportedly wrote this song after seeing a couple rendezvousing under the Berlin Wall and imagining their story. In the hands of Bowie and producer Brian Eno, the song is an impassioned plea, resulting in an aching and human love story.

9. “Modern Love” (1983)
Co-produced by Chic’s Nile Rodgers and featuring Stevie Ray Vaughn on guitar, “Modern Love” off of 1983’s Let’s Dance showed Bowie once again changing with the times, a move–and a song—that subsequently introduced him to a whole new generation of fans.

10. “The Next Day” (2013)
By 2013, it was widely assumed that Bowie was retired from the music industry. Always one to defy expectations, he surprised fans by releasing his 24th studio album, The Next Day, on his 66th birthday. It revealed that Bowie was as creative and contemplative as ever, and the album became his first number one in the U.K. in 20 years.

David Bowie Dies at 69

Posted by | Industry News | No Comments

Wow… Pop legend, David Bowie, has died today in Manhattan, NY after an 18 month battle to cancer.

This has come as a shock to Noisy Planet today–he was one of the most influential artists of our time. Tributes are being made around the world and we still cannot fathom the dimming of the great star.

David Robert Jones, known professionally as David Bowie, was an english singer with a 51 year career span.

With a voice as definitive as his, one would assume that appearance would render void–not the case with the Pop Star.
David Bowie, we can all agree that #yourmusicmatters but, let’s face it–your face alone could have brought you into the spotlight. Thank you for lifting the bar, raising our eyebrows and teaching us.

Now let’s boast about his epic career. David Bowie has sold literally, over 100 million albums (140 million to be exact, since 1967) 111 singles (hits) 51 music videos, and 25 studio albums (including Blackstar released two days before his demise)

It’s hard to contain, describe or review a career so vast, with literally hundreds of singles to choose from–where would one begin to describe or even fathom; their favorite?!?
David Bowie

We haven’t even began to mention or remind you of: LABRINTH I mean honestly, who could forget that face, epic sense of fashion, those wicked eyes–his voice?

David Bowie, he was truly a Pop God and our ears all have a ringing today as we mourn his loss in the music world. Just two days ago Bowie released his 25th studio album, to pay tribute to his memory today we wanted to play his latest and tomorrow we will post (what we believe to be) his greatest!

His latest Blackstar is an eery call to action. Who will stand up and cry: I am a Blackstar…Other than Bowie of course! Listen to his voice cry out….
At the centre of it all, your eyes, your eyes
