洋楽ブログ(3) Phillip Phillips - Raging Fire

May 12, 2014 | 5 Comments


今日話したいのは、歌手のフィリップ・フィリップスについてです。みなさんの中には知ってる方もいるかと思いますが、彼はアメリカン・アイドル第11シーズンの優勝者です。彼の最初のシングル2曲は「Home」と「Gone, Gone, Gone」でした。どちらも長期間ヒットした曲なので、100%自信をもって言いますが、みなさん過去にどこかで両方とも聞いたことがある、またはどちらか一方だけ聞いたことがある、またはどちらも聞いたことがないのいずれかだと思います。ビデオのリンクはコチラ↓

Gone, Gone, Gone (2013)

で、今回貼り付けてある「Raging Fire」は彼の最新シングルです。






When you love something, you start wanting more and more of it, and you'll find yourself addicted to it. I'm sure this sounds familiar to you. I think it's natural. I think it's human nature. With this in mind, please read on.

What I'd like to talk about today is the singer Phillip Phillips. As some of you may know, he was the winner of American Idol Season 11. His first two singles were "Home" and "Gone, Gone, Gone." Since they both became long-running hits, I'm 100% sure you have heard them both somewhere before, or either of them, or neither of them. Here are the links to the videos:

Gone, Gone, Gone (2013)

And "Raging Fire," the one embedded in this post, is his latest single.

And I don't like any of them.

I have a pretty high tolerance music-wise. I enjoy pretty much every kind of music. So, that makes Phillip Phillips one of my very very few exceptions. I can't pinpoint what I don't like about his music. It could be the melody, the beat, his voice, or the way he sings. Whatever it is just doesn't agree with me. The odd thing, though, is I still listen to those songs anyway, again and again, like I can't get enough, as if to take pleasure in displeasure. Does this also sound familiar? I think this is the second type of addiction, different from the type I mentioned in the first paragraph.

Anyway, thank you all very much for reading my blog, which I hope leaves you laughing hard every time, I mean, hardly laughing every time. This is only my third post, but I'm really glad about the substantial number of views my previous posts received. I'm also happy with the number of "Likes" my previous posts received, which was none. I hope what's going on here is the second type of addiction and that you don't like my blog but keep coming back for more.

On the minuscule chance that you might actually like any of my blog posts, there's no need to be scared or ashamed to "Like" it. I would greatly appreciate it if you do. And, if you later regret it, I believe you can un-like it by clicking the "Like" button again, if I'm not mistaken. So, don't worry.

I'll be looking forward to getting zero or an even number of "Likes" for this post.
