Smells Like Teen Spirit

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" is a song by the American rock band Nirvana. It is the opening track and lead single from the band's second album, Nevermind, released on DGC Records. Written by Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl and produced by ... Butch Vig, the song uses a verse-chorus form where the main four-chord riff is used during the intro and chorus to create an alternating loud and quiet dynamic.The unexpected success of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in late 1991 propelled Nevermind to the top of the charts at the start of 1992, an event often marked as the point where alternative rock entered the mainstream. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was Nirvana's biggest hit, reaching number six on the Billboard Hot 100 and placing high on music industry charts all around the world in 1991 and 1992."Smells Like Teen Spirit" received many critical plaudits, including topping the Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics' poll and winning two MTV Video Music Awards for its music video, which was in heavy rotation on music television. The song was dubbed an "anthem for apathetic kids" of Generation X, but the band grew uncomfortable with the success and attention it received as a result   more

Nearer, My God, to Thee

"Nearer, My God, to Thee" is a 19th-century Christian hymn by Sarah Flower Adams, based loosely on Genesis 28:11–19, the story of Jacob's dream. Genesis 28:11–12 can be translated as follows: "So he came to a certain place and stayed there all night... , because the sun had set. And he took one of the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep. Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it..."The hymn is well known, among other uses, as the alleged last song the band on RMS Titanic played before the ship sank   more

Wind of Change

"Wind of Change" is a power ballad written by Klaus Meine, vocalist of German rock band Scorpions. It appeared on their 1990 album Crazy World, but did not become a worldwide hit single until 1991—just after the failed coup that collapsed the Soviet...  Communist party—when it topped the charts in Germany and across Europe and hit No. 4 in the United States and No. 2 in the United Kingdom. It later appeared on the band's 1995 live album Live Bites, their 2000 album with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Moment of Glory, and on their 2001 unplugged album Acoustica.Worldwide, the single has sold millions of copies, making it one of the best selling singles of all time; a common number given is 14 million copies sold. It holds the record for the best-selling single by a German artist and band over songs like Sun of Jamaica and is probably slightly behind "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie" in the race for "best selling modern song composed by Germans".The band also recorded a Russian-language version of the song, under the title "Ветер перемен" and a Spanish version called "Vientos de Cambio". The band presented a gold record of the single to Mikhail Gorbachev in 1991   more

Vogue

"Vogue" is a song by American singer-songwriter Madonna from her soundtrack album I'm Breathless. It was released as the first single from the album on March 20, 1990, by Sire Records. Madonna was inspired by vogue dancers and choreographers Jose an... d Luis Xtravaganza from the Harlem "House Ball" community, the origin of the dance form, and they introduced "Vogueing" to her at the New York City club Sound Factory. "Vogue" later appeared on her greatest hits compilation albums, The Immaculate Collection and Celebration."Vogue" is an upbeat dance-pop and house song and followed the trends of dance music in the 1990s. However, it has strong influences of '70s disco within its composition. The song also contains a spoken section, in which the singer namechecks various golden era Hollywood celebrities. Lyrically, the song is about enjoying oneself on the dance floor no matter who one is, and it contains a theme of escapism. Critically, "Vogue" has been met with appreciation ever since its release; reviewers have praised its anthemic nature and listed it as one of the singer's career highlights   more

Right Now

"Right Now" is a rock song written by the group Van Halen for their album For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. The song reflects on living for the moment and not being afraid of making a change. Vocalist Sammy Hagar has said that he was writing the lyrics...  to this song at the studio very late one night, and he heard Eddie Van Halen in an adjacent room working on a piano melody. Hagar said he suddenly realized that "we were writing the same song," so he walked into the room and began singing his words over Van Halen's music. This story is debatable since a version of the melody appears in the 1984 movie The Wild Life which was scored by Eddie Van Halen.Hagar says the lyrics for "Right Now" were the best he ever wrote for a Van Halen song. "I was tired of writing cheap sex songs," he recalled almost two decades later. "Eddie and I wanted to get serious and talk about world issues." He was one of the few not impressed with the song's music video, since he felt it took attention away from the song. It won Video of the Year at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, and served as the basis for a soda commercial   more

Amazing Grace

"Amazing Grace" is a Christian hymn with words written by the English poet and clergyman John Newton, published in 1779. With the message that forgiveness and redemption are possible regardless of sins committed and that the soul can be delivered fr... om despair through the mercy of God, "Amazing Grace" is one of the most recognizable songs in the English-speaking world.Newton wrote the words from personal experience. He grew up without any particular religious conviction, but his life's path was formed by a variety of twists and coincidences that were often put into motion by his recalcitrant insubordination. He was pressed into the Royal Navy, and after leaving the service, he became involved in the Atlantic slave trade. In 1748, a violent storm battered his vessel so severely that he called out to God for mercy, a moment that marked his spiritual conversion. However, he continued his slave trading career until 1754 or 1755, when he ended his seafaring altogether and began studying Christian theology.Ordained in the Church of England in 1764, Newton became curate of Olney, Buckinghamshire, where he began to write hymns with poet William Cowper   more

Auld Lang Syne

"Auld Lang Syne" is a Scots poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. It is well known in many countries, especially in the English-speaking world, its traditional use being to bid farewell to the old year ... at the stroke of midnight. By extension, it is also sung at funerals, graduations and as a farewell or ending to other occasions. The international Boy Scout youth movement, in many countries, uses it as a close to jamborees and other functions.The song's Scots title may be translated into English literally as "old long since", or more idiomatically, "long long ago", "days gone by" or "old times". Consequently "For auld lang syne", as it appears in the first line of the chorus, might be loosely translated as "for old times".The phrase "Auld Lang Syne" is also used in similar poems by Robert Ayton, Allan Ramsay, and James Watson as well as older folk songs predating Burns. Matthew Fitt uses the phrase "In the days of auld lang syne" as the equivalent of "Once upon a time..." in his retelling of fairy tales in the Scots language   more

Waltzing Matilda

"Waltzing Matilda" is Australia's most widely known bush ballad. A folk song, the song has been referred to as "the unofficial national anthem of Australia".The title is Australian slang for travelling on foot with one's belongings in a "Matilda" sl... ung over one's back. The song narrates the story of an itinerant worker, or "swagman", making a drink of tea at a bush camp and capturing a sheep to eat. When the sheep's owner arrives with three police officers to arrest the worker for the theft, the worker commits suicide by drowning himself in the nearby watering hole, after which his ghost haunts the site.The original lyrics were written in 1895 by poet and nationalist Banjo Paterson. It was first published as sheet music in 1903. Extensive folklore surrounds the song and the process of its creation, to the extent that the song has its own museum, the Waltzing Matilda Centre in Winton, Queensland. In 2012, to remind Australians of the song's significance, Winton organised the inaugural Waltzing Matilda Day to be held on 6 April, the anniversary of its first performance.The song was first recorded in 1926 as performed by John Collinson and Russell Callow   more
