Tuesday brings with it the sweet sounds of music. Time for “Tunes With Tuesday”, the weekly feature that bring a hint of music with a dash of chocolate.
Here is the music, can you supply the chocolate?
This is christyb, I have a sweet tooth.
Recently, my friend Casandra Miska told me about the musical brothers Boyce Avenue. Check out YouTube, she said. I can’t stop listening to their music and watching the videos. I play them online while I research an article on another screen. I listen as I make dinner. I listen.
The brothers cover many well-known songs, such as the one featured this week. Adele’s Set Fire To The Rain is redone in an acoustic format by Boyce Avenue.
What a new experience when the song is sung by a different performer. The words are pronounced differently by Boyce Avenue, a more pronounced version with different emphasis placed on the syllables spoken.
I realized that the written word can be pronounced in many ways, whether in the format of a song or a poem. Consider a poetry reading. A confident speaker comes across to an audience quite differently than someone who stutters over the words of the same poem.
There is more than words that is translated. The audience analyses the tone of the speaker, the pitch of voice, and the body language. Perhaps the audience is not even cognizant of the analysis.
Boyce Avenue take on a song made famous by a female vocalist. The group puts their own spin on the words.
Had you heard of Boyce Avenue before this post?
