Allow me to introduce to you the Outrageous Writer's hand picked greatest musicians of all time.
I know everyone will nod on this. Surely, since I am a 90's baby, I grew up with his music. I remember that when Thriller was being played before, I would run to my mom and hide because of the creepy zombies on the music video, but I would turn up the volume and sing with him. Honestly, I was not such a big fan of him when he was still alive, and it was just when he died that I have learned all of his songs. During the different tribute shows on the television after he dies, I found myself apparently very familiar to all of his song even though it was the first time I have heard it (or maybe I just forgot it). I watched all of his music videos and concerts in youtube, and I realized how a great performer he was. Even though I wasn't seeing him live, his energy passes through the monitor screen, and I kid not on that. Long live the King, he would always be remembered.
I guess I was just on my third grade when I first heard the Skater Boy, and from then I treated myself as her number one fan pretending that I knew everything about her. I love her, she is just way so fabulous. She popped on the music scene with a unique style and with her own niche, thus, making her very endearing. During the first phase of 2000, punk had always been characterized with dirty-looking-with-very-unpleasant-visual-appeal-boys, but there she was, pretty girl in sneakers. Since I was kinda bulol then, I often screw up all the lyrics of her songs. But now, I can proudly stand before all of you and sing the song you want me to, and I know every lyrics of it. Haha!
Again, like Michael Jackson, it was just after he died that I have appreciated his legacy. Little did I know that some of my all time favorite songs were originally sung by him : Cold Summer Nights, Girl Be Mine, Man form Manila and a whole lot more. I guess the song that really marked to the whole nation was his Mga Kababayan Ko, that brought out patriotism and nationalism to everyone's heart.
On the other hand, I feel sorry for the next generations, since the rap artists of today are not as pleasing as him and their songs are not as meaningful as his. Long live the Master, you would never be replaced. And by the way, I love your son Elmo.
Along with A1, Backstreetboys and N'Sync, Westlife had been the original fangirl-izers. I remember when my sister and I used to argue about them, coz I demand that Brian was the hottest while she said it was Nick, but now, I very much agree with her.
Hot, beautiful, talented and almost perfect- they are pretty much every girl wants to be. The song Viva Forever was the first one that marked through me, and it was mostly because of the very cute music video and its very solemn and endearing flow. My sister, again, was a big fan of them too. We bought original cassette tapes since there were no cd's before, and I have bought almost everything with the word Spice Girls on it.
Dear Spice Girls, nobody can ever replace you, even those cutie boppers with songs I can never understand.
You? Who are your favorite musicians?
P.S: I was inspired by sis Pearl :D
