Post a video of a song about wickedness or evil
”Helter Skelter” by the Beatles, was originally released in 1968 and remastered in 2009 by Calderstone Productions Limited (a division of Universal Music Group). It is apart of the White Album. It was written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. The reason that I chose this track as my wickedness or evil song is because of the way that, “Helter Skelter” and the other tracks of the White Album were misinterpreted by cult leader Charles Manson as a message predicting inter-racial war in the US. Manson titled his vision of this uprising “Helter Skelter” after the song. In fact, Charles Manson is still alive nowadays and is still completing his term of life imprisonment.
Post a video of a song from an animated Disney movie
A Whole New World” is a song from Disney’s 1992 animated feature film Aladdin, with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice. This song is originally a duet recorded by singers Brad Kane and Lea Salonga in their respective roles as the singing voices of the main characters Aladdin and Jasmine, the ballad serves as both the film’s love and theme song. Lyrically, “A Whole New World” describes Aladdin showing the confined princess a life of freedom and the pair’s acknowledgment of their love for each other while riding on a magic carpet. The song garnered an Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 65th Academy Awards. “A Whole New World” also won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year at the 36th Annual Grammy Awards, the first and so far only Disney song to win in this category.
Post a video of a song that is spooky
“Thriller” is a song recorded by the amazing American singer Michael Jackson and produced by Quincy Jones. The songwriter was Rod Temperton. It was released as the seventh and final single from Jackson’s album Thriller (1982) on January 23, 1984. It was released by the studio Westlake Recording Studios is a music recording studio in West Hollywood, California. Songwriter Rod Temperton wanted to write a theatrical song to suit Jackson’s love of film. The music and lyrics evoke horror films, with sound effects such as thunder, footsteps and wind. It ends with a spoken-word sequence performed by horror actor Vincent Price. “Thriller” received positive reviews and became the album’s seventh top-ten single on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. It reached the top of the charts in France and Belgium and the top ten in many other countries. It appears on several of Jackson’s greatest hits albums.
