Logo Quiz_Pop Singer: Who’s That Pop Artist?

I was looking for a casual app that will somehow kill my rooting boredom when a friend suggested to me another logo quiz application. I don’t actually intend to review this application simply because logo quizzes are now a trend and a lot of people are going crazy answering this type of application but this can’t be helped-seriously. There are number of logo quiz applications for brands, movies, characters, and people popping out today in which the famous Icon Pop Quiz that was reviewed by Maeve Audrey belongs.  The picture snatched my fidgety attention pushing me to instantly download the app.

Can you recognize these faces? They look familiar right? You might be questioning yourself by now after seeing the picture. Are they strangers you have met somewhere and bumped on a subway? Or, one of them could be your neighbor, classmate, and friend. Well, who knows? Before you stress yourself thinking of the true identity of this people take a closer look and carefully scan each faces first. Obviously, these faces are in fact well-known to most of us because they are the oh so “pop-ular” global singers of all times that we ardently watch and listen to.

Who among reading this android app review does not know the phenomenal songs of Celine Dion and Whitney Houston? People always love Whitney’s “I Will Always Love You” in the film The Bodyguard while their hearts goes on with Celine’s song “My Heart Will Go On” for the movie Titanic. They are only two of the hundreds of artists that you have to guess as you play by Logo Quiz.

Unleash Your Inner Rockstar with Lyric Legend 2

I have noticed that our love for music makes us one despite our different appreciation of song choices. For instance, people automatically sing every time there is a familiar song playing because we simply can’t resist the enticement. Our love for music also brought YouTube with its thousands or even millions of videos uploaded to hit one billions of views.

Wait there’s more. . .

The birth of countless singing reality shows is an obvious indication how strong the impact of music is globally. Two of the most outstanding programs today that showcase various talents are “American Idol” and “The X Factor” where lots of aspiring talents joins the prestigious competition to attain recognition all over the world.

The famous artists that we see and hear today like One Direction, Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks, and more are the product of these programs. I must say that I am one of the million viewers who patiently watched the journey of each contestant as they show the world their unique talents which captured and inspired our hearts to continue the dream we have within.

However, some of us dream of becoming an idol while some are already contented watching and supporting their own biases. But whenever we see an artist performing on stage we can’t help but imagine ourselves standing on their shoes. Hmmm, how does it feel to be like them? We want to experience the same fun too- lucky those distinct individuals.

Fortunately, because of our love for music, TuneWiki created a free app that will let us rock the concert scene. Through people can now experience the performance that we all dream of bringing fantasy straight from our Android devices.

We know how hard and challenging it is as an artist. Imagine the lyrics they have to memorize and the perfect pitch they have to show. Let’s see if you can pass the challenge to become the next idol!

Note: Make sure to memorize as much lyrics as you can before playing the game. Read more

Since the birth of rock and roll in the 1950s, up to its culmination in the early 60s (God bless The Beatles!) and so on, discovering and listening to new songs everyday has become a natural inclination for music lovers. Music  had become a big instrument for social and cultural movement, and was touted as one of the most expressive art forms ‘til now. Some people listen to music as if their whole lives depend on it. I can relate to those people because I owe much of my job to the songs that I listen to—I cannot ever write a single article without some music on.

You were walking at the mall with your friends, giggling and catching up with each other. It’s been decades since you’ve last seen each other. At the peak of your stories, suddenly your favorite song when you were in high school played! Thrilled by the thought and memories of that song, you and your friends sang as the music played: “Can you tell me how can one miss what she’s never had, 
How could I reminisce when there is no past. How could I have memories of being happy with you boy, Could someone tell me how can this be?” For some strange reason, one of you asked, “What’s the title of that song again?” Instantly, everybody went, “I know that song! Wait, it’s at the tip of my tongue.” Perhaps, “I know her, the girl with the curly hair who sang Officially Missing You!”

Most of the time, getting the Last Song Syndrome would be the most contagious illness you could ever encounter. You could be insane trying your very best to sing the song all over again just to figure out the title or perhaps the singer/band. Or worse, you can’t sleep and be bothered all day not until you figured it out yourself.

Having its origin in the lower part of the United States, jazz music had definitely come a long long distance away from home. With every country embracing it while throwing in a few cultural tweaks along the way, it can be adhered that jazz is relative and flexible to where it is. As renowned musician and jazz critic, Joachim Berendt puts it, there is no precise definition for this type of music so he described it instead as a “form of art music which originated in the United States through the confrontation of blacks with European music” and its “spontaneity and vitality of musical production in which improvisation plays a role.”

During the early 20th century, its popularity rose to epic proportions that it became a staple music within households and radio stations. Among the countries that saw jazz’s sunrise is Japan. With the frequent performances of American and Filipino jazz bands in the entertainment districts of Japan which is Osaka and Tokyo, the locals were inspired to create jazz music which they can call their own. As the years passed by and the country was able to produce numerous famed individuals with “all the right jazz” in their body, one contemporary band who captured a worldwide audience had stood out from the rest. Ladies and gentlemen, keep those dancing shoes tied as I introduce you to a quintet that is, JABBERLOOP!

This quirky, fun, and talented Japanese band now has an iOS application. For more information, read through this iOS app review of their exclusive freeware for iPhone and iTouch users.
