Popular Music and Oppulent Lifestyles in The Netherlands

The Netherlands has mixed musical traditions, yet most of the country’s modern music has bot been influenced by any Dutch music styles that emerged in the past. Since the 1950s songs that became popular are from the UK and the US, because the Dutch has been known to embrace music styles other than its own music culture. In many major Netherlands cities like in Wassenaar, the lively music scenes range from various musical influences; styles that best fit the popular lifestyles of wealthy Dutch Millennials.

Dutch People Not Too Keen on Supporting Traditional Music

Although the traditional Bundelkhand Rai folk dance made headway in the northern province of Fryslân, it eventually lost momentum. As it was, only a handful of Frisian folk groups had expressed themselves in Frisian music style amidst the country’s growing fascination for English rock music.

Elsewhere in other Dutch provinces, there have been revivalists of traditional Dutch music, but also failed to create tunes that would uplift the Dutch music style as a class of its own. The country’s past music style made use mostly of accordions and bagpipes.

Popular Musical Events and Night Life Scenes in Wassenaar

If there is one location in The Netherlands where traditional Dutch music is featured as musical events, it’s in Wassenaar. Although relatively a small city, this area is conspicuously well known for being chic, classy and wealthy. Here, the wealthiet and most influential Dutch families reside in the city’s opulent neighborhoods.

Wassenaar has many visitors usually for trading purposes. However, the business transactions are under the control of the Wassenaar Arrangement that was established in 1996. The Arrangement refers to a 42-member regime that controls the city’s export trades particularly over conventional weapons, new dual-use technologies and software used by private and military end-users.

Although not necessarily into promoting Dutch cultural music, the city has music festivals and events organized by the Wassenaer International Chamber for Music Festival. Yet most of Wassenaar Dutch Millennials are habitues of music lounges that feature gig and live music performers; rendering music styles ranging from 50s jazz to soul, to Latin dance tunes and modern Afro-American music.

Actually the most popular live music events are those held in rooftops featuring various local artists. Different sets of music performers from across Amsterdam perform their own music style up to the rooftop to bring the house down.

Wassenaar Lifestyle – A Good Reason Why Professional Locksmiths are Important

After having an idea of the kind of lifestyle taking place in the posh neighborhoods of this Dutch city, anyone would understand why a Slotenmaker Wassenaar is highly relevant and important.

Too often, someone leaves the house or car keys behind; or at worst, have lost it on the way home. In Wassenaar, there is no cause for panic because residents can always find a locksmith available even during unholy hours.

A responding locksmith can open the lock without damaging the locking device so that the homeowner can still use it, of the keys have been located and retrieved. Otherwise, the owner might opt to change locks instead, just to make sure the “loss” incident has no future repercussions. In Wassenaar’s rich neighborhoods, there is always the possibility that the keys have been duplicated to carry out a planned burglary.

How SEO Can Be Different for Musicians

Musicians realize the need to have an online presence using any of the different web-based platforms, such as a music website, social media accounts, YouTube video channel and other ecommerce music streaming platforms. In interacting through any of those online spaces, the need for SEO can be different for musicians.

It also depends on a musician’s status as an artist; whether he or she is still in that stage of wanting to be discovered by music lovers; or already in that stage of maintaining constant engagement with fans.

SEO Marketing is More Complex for Aspiring Musicians

SEO marketing for aspiring musicians is different from marketing a specific product to which there is a potential need.

Brand promoters need only to optimize their marketing channels with relevant keywords. Mainly because the search engine bots will use keywords or phrases, in helping consumers locate a product; or for that matter, discover a new brand of a relevant product. Keywords or key phrases and SEO help consumers find the product they need with less effort.

However, keywords or phrases may seem irrelevant for musicians because they don’t compose songs based on most searched music keywords. In fact, it’s unlikely for anyone to use keywords in discovering new music.

It’s different from marketing a more conventional music-related business that consumers will search for, by using titles. Others even use descriptive words relevant to a music element, product or service; such as dates of concerts, music tour itineraries, guitar or piano lessons, music entertainment venues, etc.

The bottom line about SEO as a marketing tool for music is that it is most useful when a product being marketed is a search-subject, rather than a discovery-subject. Musicians who still have to gain recognition in the world of music should have awareness that SEO here is more complex, time-consuming and slower to produce results.

Making Your Songs Reach People Who Like Your Kind of Music

Making your music reach the ears of music lovers who matter most. Getting them to add your music piece to their list of Liked Songs is a huge step to accomplish. However, that is all on you, regardless of the keywords or hash tags connected to your songs and your internet spaces.

In the journey toward meeting your potential admirers, search engines can help if you have an SEO online presence. Potential fans who heard your song somewhere and liked your music but cannot recall your name, will likely use the lyrics that are stuck in their head.

There’s a good chance they’ll use the name of a specific venue from whence they first heard you sing or perform. They may also know you from a contest you competed in, or from anywhere you performed publicly. The point is, these bits of information in your music website and in your social media accounts or in your ecommerce streaming profile, will matter when searches about you and your music will be launched.

A SERP checker can be a useful tool in helping you find out about searches made about you. Know the keywords used that got your website, your social media post or your YouTube video included in the search page results. Finding out about the type of audience who are inclined to like your music can provide additional inspiration.

Knowing your potential fans also opens up avenues for engaging with them so you will have a general idea of why they find your music relevant to their taste for music.

The US Automotive Industry : The Changes It Sparked in American Society

  1. No other technological invention influenced the way Americans live their life, the way automobiles have, as their arrival had spurred an economic revolution. The growth of the automotive industry not only sparked demands for more roads but also triggered changes in the eating behaviors of American families. In recent years, the global automotive industry also changed the way drivers commercially consumed music for their listening pleasure.

Not a few industries flourished when the automotive industry blossomed, paving the way for the realization of the proverbial American Dream. New jobs were created, while new cuisine in the form of fastfood style burgers, milk shakes, french fries, apple pies, donuts, fried chicken and other on-the-go meals became the staples in drive-thru ordering systems.

Unfortunately, as the advent of digital technology allowed the automotive industry to link with other fields of business to enhance customer experience, the older industries became neglected. The radio industry for one has been replaced by music streaming services. The latter not only makes music choices easier to access but also can be fine tuned to match the moods and experiences of car drivers and their passengers.

Driving and travelling experiences are best enjoyed when there is music that can make people endure long hours of being on the road; or of getting stuck in traffic congestions.

The collaboration between the automotive and music streaming industries was demonstrated in the 2012 Electronics show when Pandora announced partnerships with 16 car makers to make music an integral feature of their latest car models.

Integration of the Streaming Music Service as a Car Dashboard Feature

Combining the wholesome social effects of driving super comfy utility vehicles with streamed music creates benefits that car makers did not imagine before. Yet the 16 car manufacturers who tied up with Pandora were aware that automobile consumers have been looking for alternatives to regular radio programs.

However, the realization of the benefits of linking the automotive and music streaming industries depends on the automobile market. Initially, the Toyota – Pandora dashboard integration came into fruition only in Australia. During the period, Aussies were into buying SUVs and caravans as they wanted to have the time of their lives exploring the country’s diverse landscapes.

Also in 2015 Tesla replaced the defunct Rdio as its music streaming partner, by striking a deal with Spotify. The music service was integrated in the dashboards of Model X and Model S. Yet at that time, the Tesla Spotify team up was available only to owners of Tesla cars in Australia, Hong Kong and Europe.

Last March, Tesla announced that the company will be bringing the Spotify in-car music streaming services to North America. However, the service is not free as Tesla car owners have to pay subscription fees to access the Spotify streaming service. A free alternative to having a Spotify playlist as in-car music is to download one’s playlist through a premium subscription.

Today, even dealers of used and new cars like Earnhardt Auto Centers offer free dowloadble music to customers, which buyers of traditional cars can stream as in-car music using wireless mobile devices.

Thai Free Fire Mobile Players Boost Garena’s Foray In the Music Market

In a time and place where immersive gaming is enjoyed with so much passion, Thailand appears to be the current ideal market for a new source of video game revenues. The country’s population of mobile gamers accounts for 69% of Southeast Asian video game revenues, where Free Fire has a massive following. So much so that Free Fire publisher Garena has been gaining lucratively from the release of Free Fire Classic, a collection of original game soundtracks at Amazon Music.

Games publisher Garena is apparently at the forefront of this new revenue source, having captured a large portion of the rapidly-growing Asian mobile games market with its survival shooter game, Free Fire. When Garena released this mobile game in 2019, the publisher collaborated with several music artists from various countries to create and perform the backstory music for some of Free Fire’s popular battle royale characters. The main goal is to attract a wider range of audience from all walks of life.

Garena’s timely release of the Free Fire Classic – Soundtrack at Amazon Music in March 11, 2020, was vital to the popularity of the game in Southeast Asia. As the number of mobile apps soared at the height of the pandemic, four Free Fire songs emerged at the top of the most beloved video game scores downloaded at Amazon Music.

Vale Vale by Brazilian DJ Alok

DJ Alok’s reputation as one of the top musicians in South America and his massive fan base are apparently instrumental in making his Vale Vale original, Free Fire’s unofficial theme song. So much so that Garena included a playable DJ Alok character in the game. The Brazilian artist is also into esports, having competed at the Free Fire World Championship.

Reckoning by Swedsh Musician Krigaré

One of Free Fire’s newest musical scores is “Reckoning” by Swedish musician Krigaré, which is the background music for the backstories of Hayato and Kelly. The compelling music video depicts the narrative behind the sibling’s quest for vengeance in relation to a violent past.

Just Shake It by Vietnamese Big Daddy featuring Emily

Although the song ? Sao Bé Không L? by BigDaddy is not a Free Fire original score, Free Fire India used the song in June 2020 to kick off the Beach Party event with an upbeat party tempo featuring another Vietnamese Emily in the rap segment.

I’m on Fire- by T.R.A.P Rapper Squad

The T.R.A.P Rapper Squad comprises a mix of international artists named Awich, BJRNCK, Krawk and Faruz Feet, making their music video of different music styles one of the most popular background music of a Free Fire setting.

Garena has actually created a Free Fire ecosystem in Thailand that has linked many careers to the gaming world, including a profession known as โปร Free Fire (Free Fire Pro), The term refers to the highly-skilled gamers who provide gaming-as-a-service to help players get over their frustrations of not being able to get past levels in order to achieve higher ranks.

Although criticized as a form of cheating, it cannot be denied that their rank boosting services help sustain the interests of Thailand’s weaker Free Fire gamers. The reality is that not everyone has ability to quickly master the skills needed to survive a battle royale type of game like Free Fire.

Instagram plus YouTube Music : Great Combo Tools to Use in Promoting New Songs

Independent recording studios and artists are being provided with more tools for promoting their music, to be more competitive despite the ongoing pandemic. Last month, YouTube announced that the new music streaming service Youtube Music will allow music lovers and providers alike to share their content on Instagram.

The forthcoming feature will be quite similar to how Spotify and Apple Music let users share a story in showcasing a song, including the album cover and the performing artist. Once the new tool becomes live, Instagram users will be provided with a link to add to their Instagram stories. The link will bring followers to YouTube Music where they can view and listen to a full version of the music video. .

The YouTube platform launched earlier this year and was supposed to be working side by side with Google Play Music, it was later announced that the latter will be replaced by YouTube Music instead. Actually, this was expected since in the past few months, Google Play Music no longer allowed users to upload, download, purchase, and preorder music. Nonetheless, YouTube Music is providing a tool that Google Play Music users can use in transferring their music library to YouTube Music before the Google Play Music service shuts down for good in December 2020.

About YouTube Music

Youtube Music is a music streaming platform that gives music lovers a custom-fit interface where they can scroll through music videos and songs available at YouTube. The selections are sorted by playlists, genres and recommendations.

While the use of the streaming services is offered free of charge, it also offers a subscription plan for a premium tier that gives subscribers extra features such as ad-free streaming, song downloads for offline use, and audio-only background playback.

How To Share Your Favorite Songs Through Instagram Stories

Spotify Study Confirms Music is a Natural Aphrodisiac

Recently, leading and innovative music streaming service provider, Spotify, commissioned Dr Daniel Mullensiefen of London’s Goldsmiths University to study the relationship between songs and seduction.

Entitled “Science Behind The Song,” the study conducted interviews involving 2,000 people in the UK, to examine songs that many consider as powerful background music for promoting intimacy and sexual desires. The gender of the group of respondents were nearly in an equal split, with ages ranging between 18 and 91.

Not surprisingly, many of those interviewed confirmed the popular notion that playing romantic music is an effective approach to arousing a partner’s sexual desire. As an expert in Systematic Musicology and Historic Musicology, Dr Mullensiefen stated that music has the power to activate the neurological pleasure centers that similarly respond to various forms of gratification like food, sex and drugs.

The results showed that the top tunes selected as the best seduction songs have similar vocal qualities, particularly dynamic range using mostly “high chest voice” combined with raspiness. Classic examples that unexpectedly landed at the top of the categories are Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get it On” and “Sexual Healing.”

Another surprise finding is that 40% of those interviewed agreed that bedroom background music is more effective as a turn on sensation, over the feel or touch of a sexual partner. Music has long been recognized as an effective sensory stimulant for arousing sexual desires. This was fortified by the music psychologist’s study that men who do not listen to romantic or cheesy music, are willing to adjust their listening preferences in order to woo or win over a romantic partner.

Dr Müllensiefen remarked

“Most people have a good knowledge of what songs represent romance – mostly from film and TV references – and then use this music to communicate implicitly their intentions in a romantic situation.

Top Songs Selected as Best Track for Romantic Encounters

Suggested track selections were categorized as “ Best Songs for Romantic Dinner,” “ Best Songs for Dance Floor Flirt,” “Best Songs for Seduction,” and “Best Songs to Play in the Bedroom”.

Topping the list of best tracks as “Best Songs for Seduction” is Patrick Swayze’s “She’s Like The Wind” from the blockbuster movie “Dirty Dancing, while the movie’s theme song “Time of My Life” topped the list of “Best Songs to Play in the Bedroom”.

Yet there is one music category that majority of respondents happily supplied with Queen hits as music that furnish pleasure better than sex; to which “Bohemian Rhapsody” charted as number one. This particular finding suggests that some of the respondents might need other types of aphrodisiacs to get them into the mood. Well, in case they do, they can find a wide range of info about different forms of aphrodisiacs at myaphrodisiacs.com.

Essaying the Phenomenon of KPop as Popular Mainstream Music

In essaying the phenomenon of KPop music, the main idea is to discern the elements that make this genre, popular as a mainstream item. Westerners and other non-Korean speaking listeners do not comprehend the lyrics of most KPop songs; but still find it easy to get into the groove.

Songs with English Lyrics Become Part of Mainstream Music Even in Non-English Speaking Regions

It is likely that the situation is pretty much the same in other parts of the world.

Koreans and other non-English speaking audiences fall in love with tunes carrying English lyrics. Not because they understand the message or feel the meaning put into a song. The appeal is more on the tempo, the rhythm, and the arrangement, combined with a rendition that makes a song highly appealing.

One example is Mariah Carey’s “Without You,” which an aspiring Bulgarian female singer named Valentina Hasan, popularized as “Ken Lee” when she auditioned for a Bulgarian singing contest. Without batting an eyelash, the Bulgarian amateur singer soulfully, fluidly, confidently and with passion, sang “Ken Lee” in garbled English; not at all bothered that she was actually delivering a gibberish version of “Without You,”…

”Ken Lee, Tolibu dibu douchoo” (Can’t live, if living is without you)

The song became Valentina’s ticket to Internet fame, and to recording a globally released international single with the “Ken Lee” title.

KPop Provides Additional Proof that Music is a Universal Language

KPop music first gained international fame in 2009, via the Wonder Girls and their “Nobody but You” single.

The Wonder Girls and “Nobody But You”

Originally popularized as a local Korean pop song, “Nobody but You” became a worldwide hit when an English version of the song was released internationally and landed No. 76 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Even if still not phenomenal by standards, the Wonder Girls’ “Nobody but You” boosted South Korea’s music industry.

Psy and “Oppan Gangnam Style”

In 2012, Korean KPop artist named Psy hit and broke a number of charts and several lists of world records through his 18th KPop single, “Oppan Gangnam Style.” This particular song spearheaded the KPop music phenomenon. Just like “Nobody but You,” “Oppan Gangnam Style” has a catchy upbeat, danceable steps, but different because the song, despite its Korean lyrics, gained worldwide fame.

Only a few words such as “Baby, baby,” “Sexy lady”, and “You know I’m saying,” are in English. Yet there was a quality to it that caught the attention not only of KPop fans but also of political leaders in the likes of U.S. President Barack Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron.

Blackpink and “DDU-DU DDU-DU”

A decade later, KPop music continues to make it into the pop music mainstream. Blackpink, another all-female Korean group lands a spot in Billboard’s Top 100 in June 2018 with “DDU-DU DDU-DU” in original Korean version. The group and the song even surpassed the Wonder Girl’s feat by landing No. 55.

The quartet of sexy Korean girls, also made history by debuting as the reigning Billboard Emerging Artist Chart in the No. 1 spot. In fact another first is Blackpink’s participation in the highly attended North American Coachella Music Festival as a headliner, making history as the first ever Korean group to perform as such.

Actually, this writer is at a loss on how to end this essay with a definitive conclusion on what elements make a KPop music a phenomenal mainstream hit. So far, I have only offered proof that when it comes to music, language is not a barrier. Perhaps a professional essay editing services provider can help me present my discussions in another way.
