Your Questions About Alicia Keys Lyrics

  1. 1. Your Questions About Alicia Keys LyricsSteven asks…What is it called when a singer rapidly changes notes during alyric?Alicia Keys does it in the beginning of fallin when she says ‘in’.Christina Aguilera also does it in a lot of her songs.What is this aspect called?Big Arn answers:Melisma – for the best example of it really you should listen to Kim Burrell or most GospelSingers do it well – Marvin Sapp or Boyz II Men (Wanya in particular) Beyonce has a great onetoo but she doesnt use it as much as she in her DC days.Christina’s ios great – Jojo’s is brilliant. Chrissy A can overuse it at times – and proves how itscan be difficult in the right key when you perform it LIVE and quite often .Using that style its bestnot to over employ the technique as the special quality of it is lost on its audience.Its also something that can’t really be taught through vocal coaching for example. Your voicewill allow you to go there and embellish the notes if its able- but the over-use ormisappropriation of it can be flagrant. For a restrained usage someone like Mariah Carey is a 1/4
  2. 2. perfect example because she can go there as can Whitney but thankfully it isn’t every note.Hope this helpsLauren xMandy asks…Poll: What song has really good lyrics that you write oneverything?haha, I write Wonderwall lyrics on everything! (Oasis)maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me,after all your my wonderwall.& Superwoman – Alicia Keyseven when I’m a mess, I still put on a vest with an S on my chest,oh yes I’m a superwoman. 2/4
  3. 3. Big Arn answers:Um…its the first few words from you found me by the fray…its“I found god on the corner of first and amistad”love that.Linda asks…Who is the worst rapper of all time to you?I think Jay-Z is, even though I never heard an album by him I saw that song it had Alicia KeysOMGZI dont even understand his lyrics so I guess Ill put him as the worst of all time, oh and mostpeople here think Nas is better anyways so majority wins.BQ: I have made a Last FM, I have no plays at all but I put all the names of artists I know in mylibrary so that proves it I know everything. 3/4
  4. 4. Big Arn answers: I believe that all mainstream rap is awful but the one who takes the cake (even though i’ll be hated by ignorant people) is Lil’ Wayne he possesses no talent in rhyming. If you repeat a word back to back it doesn’t rhyme because it’s the same word. Mainstream rappers have no uniqueness they all sound the same and say the same thing. Listen to rappers with real talent like R.A the Rugged Man Guru (Gangstarr) Big L. They all have flows that make sense and rhyme. If you don’t have a good vocabulary than you may not understand them because they use 3 syllable instead of cat or hat. Powered by Yahoo! Answers Read more... 4/4Powered by TCPDF (
