This album is one of the most peculiar albums I have listened to a while. Musically it’s having an identity crisis. First it’s pure pop, then it’s acoustic and in the end it’s rock n’ roll. Vocally it’s giving all the emotions from angry to love to sensual. And lyrically ’Tongues and Tails’ feels very confessional.. the foremost theme being sex. And she isn’t shy about anything. Bold album, I gotta admit. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 Don’t Stop Swaying 🏆 A Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. ❗️ ’Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover’ samples songs from Led Zeppelin and Tears for Fears. Its original music video was banned by MTV for excessive erotic content. 💬 ”Love and let love be our desire. Live and let life be our fire. Stand by yourself, and I'll stand by you. Live and let love be our truth.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #sophiebhawkins #album #albumcover #tonguesandtails #1992 #songs #damniwishiwasyourlover #iwantyou #californiahereicome #pop #popmusic #adultcontemporary #musicismusic #popherstory #herstory #grammys #90smusic #90s #instamusic #artistoftheday #albumoftheday #records #365albums #365project #musicandchill #poptrivia #instamusic #musicismusic #poptrivia #musicandchill #herstory #1992 #popherstory #90s #365project #popmusic #sophiebhawkins #artistoftheday #pop #albumcover #damniwishiwasyourlover #iwantyou #adultcontemporary #365albums #californiahereicome #90smusic #albumoftheday #songs #tonguesandtails #album #grammys #records
’Unpredictable’ became Cole’s first platinum album. Later the same year she would become the first female artist to have two platinum albums in one year. ’Unpredictable’ is a groovy and sweet R&B album with plenty of feel good moments. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 I’ve Got Love On My Mind 🏆 A Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance (’I’ve Got Love On My Mind’). ❗️ Natalie Cole was the first African-American to win Grammy award in Best New Artist category (1975). 💬 ”When you touch me I can't resist. And you've touched me a thousand times.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #nataliecole #album #albumcover #unpredictable #1977 #songs #ivegotloveonmymind #partylights #rnb #rnbmusic #soulmusic #pop #popculture #popherstory #herstory #grammys #grammywinner #poptrivia #everythingmusic #instamusic #instaalbum #musicfollowers #365albums #365challenge #entertainment #70smusic #instamusic #grammywinner #poptrivia #unpredictable #partylights #herstory #popherstory #musicfollowers #instaalbum #entertainment #1977 #rnb #soulmusic #album #pop #popculture #albumcover #ivegotloveonmymind #365albums #nataliecole #songs #70smusic #365challenge #rnbmusic #grammys #everythingmusic

Diana Ross’ back catalogue keeps surprising me. ’Silk Electric’ has moments of familiarity but more than once I had to check that I was still listening to a Diana Ross album. ’Silk Electric’ has a weird futuristic intro in the middle of the album, feisty rock sounds and also some suggestive lyrics. It’s pretty clear that this isn’t a very coherent album but I still enjoyed it quite a lot. And personally my favorite songs were all the untraditional Ross songs. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 Muscles 🏆 A Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance (’Muscles’). ❗️ ’Muscles’ is written and produced by Michael Jackson. 💬 ”I don't wanna be around for that famous final scene. I can't help myself. I'm a fool for your love.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #dianaross #album #albumcover #electricsilk #1982 #singles #muscles #iamme #soclose #foolforyourlove #pop #popmusic #funk #funkmusic #rnbmusic #postdisco #popherstory #herstory #everythingmusic #popculture #instamusic #grammys #throwback #oldiebutgoodie #recommended #michaeljackson #poptrivia #365albums #365project #icon #instamusic #foolforyourlove #iamme #postdisco #poptrivia #herstory #popherstory #365project #popmusic #funkmusic #electricsilk #michaeljackson #album #1982 #pop #popculture #albumcover #oldiebutgoodie #365albums #grammys #funk #icon #recommended #dianaross #soclose #muscles #rnbmusic #singles #throwback #everythingmusic
Two things must be said first: Country and especially bluegrass music aren’t my cup of tea. I’m also not a fan of religious lyrics. Nonetheless, Dixie Chicks’ multi-platinum album ’Home’ is a beautiful collection of songs. There are truly touching lyrics, lovely folk feeling and gorgeous harmonies and melodies. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 Travelin’ Soldier 🏆 Six Grammy nominations: - Best Country Album ✔️ - Best Recording Package ✔️ - Best Country Instrumental Performance (Lil’ Jack Slide) ✔️ - Best Country Performance by Duo or Group (’Long Time Gone’ and ’Top of the World’) ✔️ - Album of the Year ❌ ❗️ After Natalie Maines made controversial comments about U.S. President George W. Bush. radio stations (especially country radios) started boycotting band’s songs. 💬 We're afraid to be idle so we fill up the days. We run on the treadmill, keep slavin' away 'til there's no time for talkin' about trouble in mind.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #dixiechicks #album #albumcover #home #2002 #singles #longtimegone #landslide #travelinsoldier #topoftheworld #country #countrymusic #pop #bluegrass #folk #folkmusic #popculture #everythingmusic #instamusic #controversy #poptrivia #throwback #recommended #popherstory #albumoftheday #365albums #365project #grammys #grammywinner #instamusic #grammywinner #topoftheworld #bluegrass #poptrivia #landslide #365project #popherstory #country #dixiechicks #pop #popculture #albumcover #365albums #2002 #folk #grammys #controversy #travelinsoldier #recommended #albumoftheday #home #longtimegone #countrymusic #folkmusic #album #singles #throwback #everythingmusic
There are no signs left of the 80’s Kylie on this album. She left the building when Kylie reinvented herself. And what a transformation it was! Her eponymous album is dance-pop but there are moments when the music gets borderline house / techno / trip hop. It’s very exciting mix of styles and there are no boring moments on this album. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 Confide in Me 🏆 Two ARIA nominations, one win: Best Video (’Put Yourself in My Place’). ❗️ The music video for the second single ’Put Yourself In My Place’ is loosely inspired by the Movie Barbarella. 💬 ”We all get hurt by love and we all have our cross to bear. But in the name of understanding now, our problems should be shared.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #kylieminogue #album #albumcover #1994 #eponymous #singles #confideinme #putyourselfinmyshoes #whereisthefeeling #pop #popmusic #dancepop #popherstory #herstory #everythingmusic #poptrivia #australian #instamusic #artistoftheday #albumoftheday #recordoftheday #365albums #365project #90smusic #musicispower #oldiebutgoodie #throwback #poproyalty #instamusic #recordoftheday #1994 #putyourselfinmyshoes #poptrivia #musicispower #herstory #popherstory #australian #365project #popmusic #kylieminogue #artistoftheday #pop #whereisthefeeling #poproyalty #albumcover #oldiebutgoodie #365albums #90smusic #albumoftheday #confideinme #eponymous #singles #dancepop #album #throwback #everythingmusic
What a lovely and soulful singing voice Peggy Lee had! This album might be vocal jazz on the paper but every part of it has been influenced by pop music. The end result is delightful and haunting masterpiece. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 Something 🏆 Two Grammy nominations, one win: Best Female Contemporary Vocal Performance (’Is That All There Is?’). ❗️Peggy Lee was also known as ”Miss Peggy Lee” and she was the inspiration for Muppet’s Miss Piggy: a stylish, confident blonde with a sense of romance. 💬 ” I fell in love, head over heels in love, with the most wonderful boy in the world. We would take long walks by the river or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes. We were so very much in love. Then one day he went away and I thought I'd die, but I didn't. And when I didn't, I said to myself, is that all there is to love?” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #peggylee #album #isthatallthereis #1969 #songs #meandmyshadow #imawoman #popmusic #vocaljazz #popjazz #popherstory #herstory #everythingmusic #artistoftheday #albumoftheday #recordoftheday #grammys #grammywinner #poptrivia #oldiebutgoodie #recommended #instamusic #musicismylife #365project #365albums #60smusic #misspiggy #instamusic #recordoftheday #grammywinner #peggylee #poptrivia #herstory #popherstory #365project #popmusic #vocaljazz #misspiggy #60smusic #musicismylife #artistoftheday #1969 #album #365albums #meandmyshadow #recommended #albumoftheday #songs #oldiebutgoodie #isthatallthereis #imawoman #grammys #everythingmusic #popjazz
I’m know and love all the major hits from this album. I’m also pretty sure I have listened to this album oncer or twice back in the day but I have absolutely no recollection of that. I think the reason for my ”amnesia” is the many ballads on this album. Even though Jennifer’s singing is great, some of the slow songs feel out of place and also kinda forgettable (No Me Ames is beautiful though!). Rest of the songs are more up-tempo. It’s a successful mix of dance and urban sounds with latin influences - and everything is paved with that early 00’s pop sound that I personally love very much. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 Waiting For Tonight 🏆 Two Grammy nominations: Best Dance Recording (’Let’s Get Loud’ and ’Waiting for Tonight’). ❗️ Two major hits were almost recorded by other artists: ’Let’s Get Loud’ was first offered to Gloria Estefan and Michael Jackson was interested to record ’If You Had My Love’ himself. 💬 ”Like a movie scene, in the sweetest dreams I have pictured us together. Now to feel your lips on my fingertips, I have to say is even better than I ever thought it could possibly be. It's perfect, it's passion, it's setting me free from all of my sadness.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #jenniferlopez #album #albumcover #onthe6 #1999 #songs #ifyouhadmylove #nomeames #waitingfortonight #feelinsogood #grammys #grammywinner #pop #popmusic #dancepop #latin #rnbmusic #popherstory #herstory #popculture #everythingmusic #poptrivia #365project #365albums #jlo #artistoftheday #albumoftheday #recordoftheday #oldiebutgoodie #grammywinner #latin #recordoftheday #feelinsogood #poptrivia #herstory #popherstory #nomeames #365project #jenniferlopez #popmusic #ifyouhadmylove #jlo #onthe6 #album #artistoftheday #1999 #pop #popculture #albumcover #oldiebutgoodie #365albums #waitingfortonight #albumoftheday #songs #dancepop #rnbmusic #grammys #everythingmusic
’I Put a Spell On You’ isn’t a perfect album: there are few filler tracks and it has no clear direction. But half of the songs are brilliant and they are a testament to miss Simone’s incredible talent. It’s kinda mind-boggling that she only received two Grammy nominations while she was still alive (and two more posthumously). ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 Feeling Good ❗️ Nina Simone’s version of ’Feeling Good’ has been used in Volkswagen commercial and sampled in Volvo commercial. The song used in the latter one was produced by Avicii. 💬 ”That elusive ray of light that will lead to happiness. Tomorrow is my turn. No more doubts no more fears. Tomorrow is my turn.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #ninasimone #album #albumcover #iputaspellonyou #1965 #feelinggood #pop #vocaljazz #blues #bluesmusic #popculture #poptrivia #popherstory #herstory #icon #oldiebutgoodie #throwback #recommended #instamusic #60smusic #recordoftheday #albumoftheday #songoftheday #365albums #365project #avicii #volvo #wolkswagen #instamusic #recordoftheday #poptrivia #bluesmusic #herstory #popherstory #365project #vocaljazz #songoftheday #iputaspellonyou #volvo #60smusic #blues #wolkswagen #pop #popculture #albumcover #feelinggood #365albums #icon #recommended #albumoftheday #ninasimone #avicii #1965 #oldiebutgoodie #album #throwback
I loved Lisa’s ’Affection’ album so much that I couldn’t wait any longer to listen some more of her music. ’Real Love’ is a more mature and grown-up version of its predecessor. The lyrics are fantastic and Lisa’s vocals are sultry and down right perfect. I’m still more drawn to Lisa’s debut album just because it’s more wild and rebel but ’Real Love’ isn’t any less great. It might actually be even better because it feels like Lisa became a fully fledged artist during this album. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 It’s Gotta To Be Real ❗️ During this album’s era Lisa co-wrote and recorded a song for the Bodyguard soundtrack. ’Someday (I’m Coming Back)’ was released as a single after Whitney Houston’s ’I Will Always Love You’. 💬 ”Believing is the answer, the answer to all your fears. When I first said I loved you, I went in for the kill. Now when I say I love you, I mean I always will.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #lisastansfield #reallove #1991 #album #albumcover #singles #change #allwoman #timetomakeyoumine #setyourlovingfree #popmusic #rnbmusic #soulmusic #popherstory #herstory #poptrivia #popculture #instamusic #throwback #oldiebutgoodie #recommended #365albums #365project #90s #90smusic #instamusic #change #poptrivia #setyourlovingfree #90s #popherstory #herstory #1991 #allwoman #365project #popmusic #reallove #lisastansfield #soulmusic #album #popculture #albumcover #365albums #90smusic #recommended #timetomakeyoumine #oldiebutgoodie #rnbmusic #throwback #singles

It’s easy to forget that Wilson Phillips is one of the most successful girl bands ever. But when you listen to their debut album, the reason for their success is clear: their music is classy, easygoing and catchy. Their vocal harmonies especially are absolutely beautiful. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 Hold On 🏆 Five Grammy nominations: Best Pop Performance by Duo or Group with Vocals (’You’re In Love’ and ’Hold On’), Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Song of the Year (’Hold On’). ❗️ Wilson Phillips’ debut album became the best-selling album by any girl group when it was released. It’s still the 7th on the same list. 💬 ”The secret of love. I thought I understood the way it's supposed to be. I never imagined you could blow my theory apart, but now you're running away with my heart”. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #wilsonphillips #album #albumcover #1990 #pop #popmusic #poprock #softrock #songs #holdon #releaseme #impulsive #youreinlove #popherstory #herstory #poptrivia #popculture #grammys #grammywinner #instamusic #oldiebutgoodie #throwback #365project #365albums #albumoftheday #recordoftheday #instamusic #grammywinner #recordoftheday #poptrivia #herstory #popherstory #365project #popmusic #youreinlove #releaseme #pop #popculture #albumcover #1990 #poprock #365albums #wilsonphillips #grammys #softrock #albumoftheday #songs #oldiebutgoodie #album #throwback #impulsive #holdon
I was ready to write some lukewarm comments about Martika’s debut (and most successful) album after the first song. But few songs later I found myself mouthing the (easy) lyrics and enjoying the music quite a lot. ’Martika’ is a simple but fun and entertaining pop album. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 Toy Soldiers ❗️ Before her debut album Martika starred in an American television program ’Kids Incorporated’. Fergie and Jennifer Love Hewitt also acted in the musical comedy show. 💬 ”Like water, how could I do without you? My body heat will not cool down. Like water, I could not live without you. I want to dive so deep into you I might drown.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #martika #album #albumcover #1988 #songs #morethanyouknow #toysoldiers #ifeeltheearthmove #water #pop #popmusic #dancepop #80s #80smusic #popculture #poptrivia #popherstory #herstory #kidsincorporated #instamusic #recordoftheday #albumoftheday #throwback #oldiebutgoodie #365project #365albums #water #instamusic #ifeeltheearthmove #80s #morethanyouknow #recordoftheday #poptrivia #herstory #popherstory #365project #popmusic #album #pop #popculture #albumcover #oldiebutgoodie #80smusic #365albums #toysoldiers #1988 #albumoftheday #songs #dancepop #martika #throwback #kidsincorporated
With her 3rd album Whitney went even more contemporary dance-pop in her music. One thing stayed the same though: her voice. It sounds luscious and vibrant. ’I’m Your Baby Tonight’ isn’t Houston’s best work, but catchy upbeat songs and few memorable ballads make it pretty enjoyable package. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 All The Man That I Need 🏆 Three Grammy nominations: Best Female R&B Vocal Performance (’I Belong To You’), Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (’All The Man That I Need’ & ’I’m Your Baby Tonight’) ❗️ During this album’s era Whitney performed her rendition of ’The Star Spangled Banner’ at Super Bowl XXV in 1991. Her performance was critically acclaimed. 💬 ”Now the world is full of wonder. You've turned my life around in just one day. I love the spell you've put me under: Just one kiss can take my breath away.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #whitneyhouston #album #imyourbabytonight #1990 #singles #allthemanthatineed #miracle #thestarspangledbanner #mynameisnotsusan #ibelongtoyou #pop #popmusic #dancepop #rnbmusic #popculture #poptrivia #popherstory #herstory #icon #singer #recordoftheday #albumoftheday #instamusic #recommended #365project #365albums #instamusic #recordoftheday #allthemanthatineed #poptrivia #mynameisnotsusan #thestarspangledbanner #herstory #popherstory #365project #imyourbabytonight #popmusic #album #pop #popculture #1990 #365albums #ibelongtoyou #recommended #icon #albumoftheday #whitneyhouston #singer #dancepop #rnbmusic #singles #miracle
Today is the grand final of the Eurovision song contest 2018 so it’s a perfect excuse to listen to Frida’s solo album ’Something’s Going On’. The material is much more rockier than any of her previous music. The sound gets monotonous at times but Frida’s energy keeps it interesting (with great lyrics). She feels emancipated and fierce - just like Phil Collins behind the drums. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 💎 I Know There Is Something Going On ❗️ ’Something’s Going On’ is the best-selling ABBA solo record to date and it’s produced by Phil Collins. 💬 ”You've had your shares of ups and downs. Been through too many lovers, had a taste but never a bite. But look here. What I got for you, it's love and it's true.” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #frida #annifridlyngstad #album #somethingsgoingon #1982 #singles #toturnthestone #iseered #tellmeitsover #pop #popmusic #poprock #popculture #popherstory #herstory #abba #poptrivia #oldiebutgoodie #throwback #recordoftheday #albumoftheday #instamusic #365project #365albums #musicislife #musicjunkie #instamusic #recordoftheday #iseered #musicislife #poptrivia #herstory #popherstory #somethingsgoingon #365project #popmusic #musicjunkie #album #1982 #pop #popculture #abba #poprock #tellmeitsover #365albums #frida #albumoftheday #annifridlyngstad #oldiebutgoodie #toturnthestone #throwback #singles
