Stop Me Now (Lock Me Up) - Venus Flytrap

Venus Flytrap's song "Stop me now (Lock me up)" is, in my opinion, one of the best pop songs ever. The vocals are outstanding, and better than the vocals by some of the most famous pop stars in music history.  And the music makes the song both soothing to the nerves and relaxing to the mind.  Sorry to say, I couldn't find the lyrics, which is the same problem I've had with some other songs.  That's not going to stop me, and the music of this song is so upbeat, and with a good feel to it, that it makes problems seem not so bad.  Venus Flytrap's CD "Visa for Love", which has this song and others, was not available at the website where I hoped to purchase it.  The website said it would contact me when they get it.

Carta Immense - Iglood Together (New Song 2011) HD

"Iglood Together" by Carta Immense was the Number 1 song for 2011 on the list of rock songs published in January. The vocals and guitar playing are among the best ever in rock. It seems their decision to make the drumming not so heavy and loud was a good one, in order to let the great singing be heard.  This decision could be the difference one way or the other when it comes time for me to update the 100 Best Rock Songs List.

The four or five songs on the 2011 list are very close in terms of quality and greatness, and could really change the top 20 of the 100 Best list.
These lists are based on my comparing many songs, and the lists are part of my opinion, not based on lists by other writers, and obviously not based only on what is on the radio, though I do listen to the radio. Please refer to the list "25 Best Songs of 2011".  It is my list of best rock songs for last year, though I allowed some crossover songs, and some are alternative, pop, and metal songs.

Note: I take no responsibility or credit for the description or words on the video.  The song and video are the property of their owners and in this capacity, I'm only a writer/music reviewer.  I do not change the title of a post unless I think it's a good idea.  This time I took a word out because it seemed to be in favor of downloading the song and I'm not involved in this decision, I tell readers to buy songs and CDs, but so far I haven't found this song or any CD by Carta Immense available for purchase.

Nicki Minaj

I was happy Saturday after purchasing three song downloads, all three were Nicki Minaj, including two versions of "Starships" and the Explicit version of "Stupid Hoe".  I like the song "Stupid Hoe" though I doubt I would ever write or record that kind of lyrics.  But everyone should do what they want to do in music.  This song is much more interesting and better, in my opinion, than most of the hip-hop songs I've heard and many of the pop songs on the radio these days.  Although, you know what, there are some great pop songs on the radio now.  Pop music seems to be getting better and hopefully it will return to the level of '80s and '70s pop music.
