Venting to the World

The Third British Invasion

 

I was too young to really follow the first British Invasion (The Beatles), but I reveled with the second British Invasion (New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Tears for Fears, The Cure, Duran Duran..and the list goes on and on).

Adele is one in the string of very talented British singers that sing like Black women from the 40’s. Amy Winehouse with “Back to Black” is the most famous one. London has an Arts school that has been attracting these talented singers. Interesting how British songs shows more sadness and despair while American music is more upbeat, silly or materialistic (hip hop).

I am happy to witness the third “British Invasion”. Young artists with soulful voices. Raspy voices. Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black”, Keane’s “Crystal Ball” and Adele’s “Chasing Pavements”, my latest obsession, are my favorites. It’s actually hard to keep up with all the new artists: Duffy, Natasha Bedingfeld, James Blunt, etc.  What does that little island have in its water that it produces so many good musicians?
