Song Battles - Season 1, Episode 3 - Nonexistent?

Welcome back to song battles with your host LANDlover! This episode is all about 5H's unreleased songs. As all Harmos know, Fifth Harmony has a fairly large unreleased discography, enough to make a small album. So you might be wondering, which two unreleased songs shall battle for a place in the Semi-finals. We already have our first pairing, Who Are You vs. Touch. Let's see which song will make the second. Song 1 Song 2 Alright! Let's begin!! Song Change The Bad Boy Goodbye Lyrics ย  ย  Production ย  ย  Melody ย  ย  Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  First up, we have lyrics. And although CTBB's lyrics present an interesting concept that not really explored that often in pop songs, this point easily goes to Goodbye. The lyrics are just so relatable, and they perfectly capture that feeling of how sad it is to say goodbye to someone or something that's been with you for a long time. Song Change The Bad Boy Goodbye Lyrics 0 1 Production ย  ย  Melody ย  ย  Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  Next is production. This most definitely goes to CTBB. Goodbye does what it has to do as a ballad with its simple piano, but CTBB has these funkyย synth/bass things that I really like. Song Change The Bad Boy Goodbye Lyrics 0 1 Production 1 0 Melody ย  ย  Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  Our next category is melody! There aren'tย really any melodies that strike me in either of these songs. They both do what the need to do, and for that reason, this category is a tie. Song Change The Bad Boy Goodbye Lyrics 0 1 Production 1 0 Melody 0.5 0.5 Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  Next up we have vocals. CTBB has solid vocal moments, especially Alren's prechorus, but Goodbye just has some beautiful harmonies, so it gets this point. Song Change The Bad Boy Goodbye Lyrics 0 1 Production 1 0 Melody 0.5 0.5 Vocals 0 1 Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  Our final category is performance. This is a tricky category. Both of these songs have great deliveries. I love Lauren in CTBB, and I love the way Dinah singsย "do" in Goodbye. I've decided to give another tie. Song Change The Bad Boy Goodbye Lyrics 0 1 Production 1 0 Melody 0.5 0.5 Vocals 0 1 Performance 0.5 0.5 Total 2 3 And our winner is Goodbye with a score of 3-2! Our bracket now looks like this:
 

Itunes Festival

Ghost Town Denis: LONDONN, Let me hear you scream! The audience cheer, while Denis walks up, putting his fingers through his hair and smiles, and starts to sing the verse of Ghost Town, tho it sounded a bit for different, more mature, less auto tune then the Album Track, the audience loved it,ย  While Denis skips Verse 2, and gets to the solo part! and holds a note and turns his scream to a clean vocal! something impressive! he kneels on his knee while he finishes Ghost Town, and he looks out into the audience ย  Denis: Who is is excited to see Janet Jackson on stage tonight,ย  "audience cheered" Like I'm fan girling right now, Since the weeknd is also performing!

And it ends with me lying face down on the ground
There's safety in phone lines and whispered I love you's that don't make a sound
See we're like a landslide
You can run all you want but you won't get away
I can't say that I've tried
'Cause you pull like a magnet
So I'm here to stay ย  You make me
Lose Control
The timebomb's ticking so
Have mercy on our souls
4, 3, 2
This place about to blow
Oh oh oh ย  ย  ย  We are explosive yea I know
But baby I can't take it when you go
This love is like a hurricane
And I can't take it, I can't walk away
This happens when the two of us combine
Oh send reinforcements 'cause we'll cross the line
Our love is just so dangerous
I wouldn't have it, any other way ย  Denis: Thank you so fricken much! You all were amazing! CHEERS!ย ย  Denis walks off stage throwing his drummer's stick out to the audience. ย

Song Battles - Season 1, Episode 2 - Summery Vibes

Hello! Welcome to today's episode of song battles. So today's episode is all about songs that make you want to have fun it the sun, even though it's still somehow very cold where I live. Now, for our two competitors: Song 1 Song 2 Now, let's get on with the battle. Song Down Touch Lyrics ย  ย  Production ย  ย  Melody ย  ย  Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  First up we have lyrics! Both of these songs have solid lyrics, albeit a bit basic. Touch has nice lyrics about being emotionally and sexually in love with a boy, and Down has good lyrics about being there for someone you care about. I think I'll give this one a tie. Song Down Touch Lyrics 0.5 0.5 Production ย  ย  Melody ย  ย  Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  Next up is production. Both of these songs have incredible synthy production. I'm giving this one to Touch because it has a bit more going to it than Down, which just has the same (although incredible) synths the whole time minus Gucci's verse. Song Down Touch Lyrics 0.5 0.5 Production 0 1 Melody ย  ย  Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  Next up is melody. Both of these songs have solid melodic moments, but I'll give this to Touch, which has a more interesting composition. Song Down Touch Lyrics 0.5 0.5 Production 0 1 Melody 0 1 Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  It's now time for vocals! Although Little Mix provide great vocals (as always) in Touch, there's nothing in the song they don't usually do vocally, and I'm not rating Touch acoustic here. Down, on the other hand, gives us one of Lauren's best high notes in years, so it gets the point! Song Down Touch Lyrics 0.5 0.5 Production 0 1 Melody 0 1 Vocals 1 0 Performance ย  ย  Total ย  ย  Lastly, we have performance. Both songs have great, confident deliveries, especially Jesy's verse in Touch and Lauren's verse in Down. It's another tie here. Song Down Touch Lyrics 0.5 0.5 Production 0 1 Melody 0 1 Vocals 1 0 Performance 0.5 0.5 Total 2 3 And winning 3-2, Touch will move on to battle Who Are You in the semi-finals! Here's where our bracket stands after today's episode. ย  Make sure to comment you thoughts down below!! ย 
 

Song Battles - Season 1, Episode 1 - Ballads vs. Bangers

Hello!! It's your wonderful host LANDlover here welcoming you to the first ever season of Song Battles!! First off, I would like to give a shout of to these videos for giving me an idea of formatting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-5e0uX-TmM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDH99zh2NHU First off, my rubric will be a little different: Song Song #1 Song #2 Lyrics - Do the lyrics capture the story, emotion, or vibe the song is going for? Can they be taken seriously? ย  ย  Production - Does the production sound good? Does it complement the lyrics well? ย  ย  Melody - Is the vocal melody of the song memorable? Is it something that is easily able to hum along to? ย  ย  Vocals - Does the artist show off vocal capabilities and talent? ย  ย  Performance - How well does the artist convey the lyrics their singing? For a ballad, does the artist have a good emotional delivery? For an upbeat song, does the artist have a good amount of confidence and attitude? ย  ย  Total ย  ย  Just like in the videos, the songs will be compared in each category, with the winner getting one point. If there's a tie for a certain category, each song will be awarded 0.5 points. At the end of the battle, the points for each song will be tallied, and whichever song has the most points will move on to the semi-finals of the competiton! Now, the moment you all have been waiting for. The songs that will be battling this episode are... vs. Now let the battle begin!! First off, we have lyrics!! Both songs have solid lyrics. Who Are You depicts an unstable relationship, and Power depicts a woman not wanting to be controlled by a man. However, I'm going to have to give this point to Who Are You, since it has great lyrical detail and description, whereas Power can get a bit basic at times. Song Who Are You Power Lyrics 1 0 Production ย  ย  Melody ย  ย  Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total 1 0 The next category is production. Although Who Are You's piano works very well, this category just has to go to Power. Power's production is just amazing and insane. Song Who Are You Power Lyrics 1 0 Production 0 1 Melody ย  ย  Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total 1 1 Next up is melody. Both of these songs have great melodies, but the melody of the chorus of Who Are You is just gorgeous, and it works really well with the song. Song Who Are You Power Lyrics 1 0 Production 0 1 Melody 1 0 Vocals ย  ย  Performance ย  ย  Total 2 1 Up next we have vocals. Both of these songs have amazing vocals, but the end of Who Are You takes the cake for me. Dinah and Ally were incredible! Song Who Are You Power Lyrics 1 0 Production 0 1 Melody 1 0 Vocals 1 0 Performance ย  ย  Total 3 1 The final category is performance. Who Are You has great emotional deliveries, and Power has great confident and sassy deliveries. Even though Who Are You works well on an emotional level, Power gets the point for this, because every part is just done fantastically! Song Who Are You Power Lyrics 1 0 Production 0 1 Melody 1 0 Vocals 1 0 Performance 0 1 Total 3 2 And as you can see, Who Are You wins with a score of 3-2, and will go on to the semi-finals! Here's our bracket as of now!! ย  And that's all for today!! Stay tuned for next time, where I don't even know which songs will be battling!!
 

It's Official

As we all know, today is a sad day for the Harmonizer community. The girls have officially announced their hiatus. I'm not all that surprised, but I wasn't expecting this so soon. As a passionate OT5 stan, I will continue to support all of the girls in their solo endeavors. As soloists, I feel like I fully stan Lauren, Ally, and Camila, but I will continue to support Norminah, and hopefully their debut projectsย will make me stan. I am excited for what's in store for the girls, and I have a lot of hopeย that they will make a 5H4 in a few years time, but for now let's put all our effort into supporting: #NK1 #LJ1 #AB1 #DJ1 along with the rest of the #CAMILA era. And DON'T FORGET... there is another extremely talented girl group called Little Mix that is still together, and they will be releasing #LM5 this year! We'll all be going through this bittersweet and exciting time together, and we will create even more memories with the girls as soloists! Have a great day everybody!

hammer's Fifth Harmony Megarate

Last night, CoPer hammer hosted the results for his Fifth Harmony self-titled megarate. I must say that I was mostly disappointed in the results, being that my favorite track was towards the bottom of the list, and two of the worst tracks were in the top 3. I'm going to give my thorough opinion on each track and placement. #10. Bridges- I like this song, but I don't love it. I would have preferred it a little higher, but I'm completely ok with this taking the bottom spot, even though some songs deserved it more. #9. Messy- I'm happy with this placement. This song is just so uninteresting, and number nine is exactly where I would've put it. #8. Down- This angered me. This song should've been number one, or at least in the top five. It is so catchy and infectious. #7. Make You Mad- Like Down, this is another bop that deserved better. This should've been number three or number two. #6. Sauced Up- I think this was placed pretty accurately. It could have been a little lower, but this is a good position for this song. It just doesn't pack the full punch. #5. He Like That- I think that this song was also placed accurately, although I might've put it a little higher. It's a solid bop. #4. Lonely Night- This song definitely should've been lower. It's good, but not as good as a lot of Harmonizers say it is. #3. Deliver- I'm sorry, but this song is just not good. It deserved to be number ten, and it especially did not deserve to be number three. It just sounds so awful. The piano combined with the background instrumentation makes for a grating beat. #2. Angel- Although this song has grown on me, there are still many problems with it, and it is extremely overrated. I feel like 5H just created this song because they wanted to seem more "edgy". It just doesn't work. There are other trap-pop songs that work better than this, for example: #1. Don't Say You Love Me- I love this song. It is one of the best off of the album, and a respectable number one. I completely understand how (almost) everyone loves this song, including the host hammer, who wanted this to win from the start. ย  Let me know your thoughts!! Vote in the poll what song you think should've won, and comment down below!! Until next time!!ย 
 

My forum expeicience in General

I just wanted to write a blog about what I've done in forums. What I've seen and felt.ย  My first forum, which was Sugababesfanclub.nl, was the light for me. It was in the time social media didnt exist. I was old enough to understand what stanning is really about. Or not if you compare to how I stan now.ย  I was literally obsessed with the Sugababes. It was the only artists I could listen to and really appreciate. My room was full with posters. I even printed some images I found in google to make sure I had more posters and images on my walls and door. But I was missing someone who felt the same for my idols so I searched on Google and thats how I found it.ย  I was like 13 years old back then. I really learned how to use forums. But I had to learn it the hard way. As a newbie that never used forums before posted everywhere but got ignored. Even quoting people didnt work until a few months. Upvoting didnt exist back then. So I really felt like forgotten. The only reason I stayed was the fact I finally found a place where I could express my feelings and talk about it with people that really understood.ย  When people started to notice me I made some amazing friends and grew into the community. A few years later at the age of 15 I got to co-moderate that forum. I really felt special I could support that website I loved so much. I was like the proudest girl in the world. I got Autism but I could do it! But as it was a stanbased forum (like GGD) it was depending on the artist its activity. So when it didnt go well with the Sugababes and basically their career ended the forum died. I was devastated sad and cried when I realized I'm making my last posts there. (can you imagine, a 15 year old girl finding piece and acceptance online and that place goes away) But then in 2008 Lady Gaga and Katy Perry happened and I got over it. I created an account on GGD. That forum really was huge and it made me feel insecure about where to start with posting. Until I found out they had a chatroom. There I spoke to people that really cared and I slowly got my love for forums back. But just in the chatroom, for some reason closing my first forum made me feel shy. In that chatroom I met a friend who really cared about me. Later he taught me about Graphic art as he was really good at it and very passionated about it. He got me my first edited avi and thought that was special. But also there was this huge stanwar going on between Katy Perry and Lady Gaga and I stanned both. I got bullied for that. They were like "leave this forum if you stan Katy" "It isnt possible to stan both". Terrible because I really felt like just because I'm in a Gaga forum doesnt mean I cant stan both.ย  Then my second Gaga forum, OperationGaga happened. My friend send me a link to that forum. It was still a young forum so I felt more comfortable posting. And so it happened I really made tons of good friends, and I really got my love for forums back! It was a great feeling as I was really happy I could share my love for music again like nothing happened.ย  Pretty sure that if it wasnt for OGG, I wasnt here now.ย  So now you know why I care about you as much as I do. Because I love you I really do! And now you know why I care about newbies so much. Because I know how it feels to be new and get ignored In a new blog I tell about other stuff I've done and went through. Thank you for reading! I'mย

Thoughts

I've recently been having some disturbing thoughts. My relationships with people have been getting better the past year, the high school environment being a major factor. I've come to terms with my sexuality last year, though I've never considered it a "blessing".ย  My sexuality has caused my a lot of psychological stress throughout my life, and it still does to this day. I cannot live a normal life, and never will be able to. If I try to run away from my problems, the thought of it will always haunt me. Regret, of me abandoning my family, the ones who raised me and I have known since the day I was born. I cannot imagine myself living a life without them. They're part of me. I also cannot imagine living my life without my friends, by best friend who I came out to in autumn, my close relatives. But I've been thinking.ย  Why do I feel love for these people? Why should I care for them when I know that the moment they find out about my true self, the moment my dreams and ideals and myself become apparent, that unconditional love would instantly turn to hate? When I'm at school, I'm hanging around with my friends. I enjoy the time, I enjoy the laughs. I love them, and they like me. I reminisce on the wonderful time we spent together the past 2 years. Now, if that were my real self, would those memories ever exist? What if, in an instant, they were to find out, what would happen to that love?ย  I love them, and they like me. I love them even after remarks that hurt me deeply. Why do I still love them? Why shouldย ย I love them? Why should I love the people that would discard me the moment I became true to myself? Do they love me, or the facade I'mย wearing to mask my true feelings, my true desires, my true identity? How can I sit and laugh and cry with the people who would never think twice about leaving me in the mud for such a petty reason as my sexuality? Do I treasure these memories, do I hold them dear? Can I continue calling them "friends" without sounding like a complete hypocrite?ย  My family, who have raised me up, supported me, believed in me... would they feel the same aboutย meย ? Would they feel the same unconditional love? Would my mother kiss me the same? Would my father still be proud? Would my sisters still love me and call me their brother? I think the greatest horror of all would be just that. Your family abandoning you. The same people who have always taught you that family is most important, that family is always there for you, that family will always love you... I fear disappointment. I don't want to disappoint anyone. Most importantly,ย my family. Low grades, getting in trouble, wasting money, being gay. Should I still love them like I always did? Can I live with the fact that my family could abandon me to die in the streets if they were to find out? Couldย I still kiss my mother goodbye the same?ย  What is this love that I'm feeling? Is it fake, or is it real? Should it be fake, should it be real? How can I live my life like this, knowing that all this love would turn to hate in an instant, for who I am, for who I am afraid to be? How can I see these people each day, call them friends, call them family, respect them, love them, help them. How can I see them and not think they're monsters waiting for me to fall down and let me rot there?

50 - 46

Since ATRL is so unstable I'm posting it here instead and just copy and pasting there so enjoy COP you get my flop best of too ย  ย  50 - 46ย  ย  ย  Reputation was one of my favourite albums of 2017, but this song wasn't the strongest, but I personally still love it, the video is great, one of the best come backs from Taylor, after this era I became a fan!ย  It's not dancing with hands tied but this song is still a bop.ย  ย  ย  This band is just so amazing, I saw them live this year with Bring Me The Horizon and loved at first listen, this song is such a catch, it would of been higher but sadly it didnt get much attention, if you're into heavy but not too heavy music, this is def a bop.ย  I regret putting it this low tho. it deserved Top 20 ha. ย  I was so peached for the new era, even tho my 2nd favourite FH left, i had hope, this song was a flop but when it first released I was obessesed but I got sick of it quite quickly, such a cute video and cute song, just a real shame the rest of the era was a disappointment, I'm still a huge fan of them tho...but mainly for the 2nd album.ย  ย  Kesha really amazed me this year, her album was AMAZING, even tho there was a lot of songs I disliked because ew country, but she showed that she is very genre range she can do just about ANYTHING, this song was one of my 2nd favourites on the album and a cute ass video showing Kesha growing up, it could not missed the Top 50 this year. I inspire her and also became a huge fan of her this year, I have even been overplaying her previousย albums which may appear on my Top 50 Most Played of 2017. ย  Dave went hardcore in this song, those screamos I STAN METAL FOO FIGHTERS, anyways after that last album I was so disappointedย but after reelasing this I was like WOW he is back, Dave tries a lot of new projects and this song won me over, I love this headbanging masterpiece ย  ย  ย  ย
