Songs about change can be very difficult to listen to. For example, “Change” by the Deftones is not always a happy song. It can be very painful to undergo a change in your life. However, there are many songs about change that can be very inspirational. Let us look at some of these songs.
Cher’s “Wide Awake”
Katy Perry’s ‘Wide Awake’ video is reminiscent of Cher’s “Wide Awake.” This video stars Katy Perry and Cher Lloyd as two fairy princesses who meet in faraway lands and fall in love. While both are distinctly different, the two music videos have a lot of similarities. Both songs and videos feature the two starlets in different costumes.
The single was first released in 1970, and has sold over 10 million copies. The song features Chastity Brown, a woman who is too old for Cher’s “White Swan.” Chastity Brown’s long, curly wig and late ’70s style are both too old for Cher. She sings in a falsetto and appears to be zoned out.
Cher and Katy Perry both have a chameleon-like ability to reinvent themselves. While Cher made her biggest hits during the 70s, she later became a leading draw on social media. Both Katy Perry and Cher have used social media platforms to express their personal views. Katy has also become an ambassador for UNICEF and supports equal marriage.
John and Cher became close after their daughter was born. They kept in touch with their children’s biological mothers. Cher also kept in touch with the biological mothers of Wayne and Molly Stark. Cher was the constant support for her family. This connection helped them cope with the tragedy.
David Bowie’s “The Times They Are A-Changin'”
David Bowie revisits the Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changing” theme in “Changes,” one of his early songs. “Changes” talks about society changing. The song is set in medieval times, where medieval travelers constantly change their surroundings.
“The Times They Are A-Changing” was released in 1963. The song quickly became a rallying cry, calling on the common man to band together and question the government. The song is optimistic and hopeful, encouraging people to band together to make change.
“The Times They Are A-Changing” is a powerful album about human experience and the human spirit. It’s not easy to listen to, but it’s an important piece of music for any music lover’s playlist. It’s also a great choice for a night out.
Dolly Parton’s “Imagine”
Dolly Parton is a successful businesswoman and global country music star who is also passionate about the importance of literacy for children. In 1995, she launched a program called the Imagination Library, which mails free books to children ages birth to five. Since then, the initiative has become an international success, expanding from her hometown of East Tennessee to Canada, Australia, and the U.K.
Since launching the initiative, Dolly Parton has donated millions of books to children worldwide. The Imagination Library started out as a local program in Sevier County, Tennessee, but has now grown to a global movement with affiliates in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and the Republic of Ireland. As of 2016, the library had already donated over 130 million books to children worldwide.
The program is designed to help preschool children develop a love of reading. It sends free books to children every month, up to the age of five. It is designed to overcome the financial barriers children face in learning to read, and leverages matching funds to help schools and families provide books. In addition, the program is designed to complement the federal Reading Sufficiency Act, which aims to have every kindergarten-aged child ready to learn to read by age five.
While Dolly Parton has a glamorous image, her humble roots are evident. The singer has always been true to her roots and has contributed to numerous charities and causes. She spent her childhood in the mountainous areas of East Tennessee and had a mother and father who raised 12 children.
Cat Stevens’ “Winds Of Change”
Fans of classic Stevens material might feel that the new song is a return to form for the late singer. However, “Winds of Change” is much more than a comeback. It represents a journey that will shape Stevens’ career and legacy. While his music may not have been able to change the world, he was able to make his fans happy through his lyrics.
As the title implies, this album is about climate change, but it also celebrates the past. Similar to Simon & Garfunkel’s “Old Friends,” this song is a nostalgic trip down memory lane. And even though the music is upbeat, the lyrics sound like they were written by a 12-year-old.
In 1976, Cat Stevens was having a difficult time with his career and turned to prayer for help. He was then given the Qur’an by his brother David, and he began applying the spiritual values of Islam to his life. He gradually reduced his alcohol consumption and stopped going to clubs and parties. In 1977, he became a Muslim and started a new life.
Stevens’ fifth album, Teaser And the Firecat, went gold. It featured hits like “Morning Has Broken”, “Peace Train,” and “Moon Shadow”. The album went from No. 13 to gold in fifteen days. After this release, Stevens became a popular concert performer.
Peter Gabriel’s “Changes”
With this tour, Gabriel examines his career since leaving the progressive art rock band Genesis in the mid-70s. With an international band and video cameras, Gabriel bridges polarities and showcases his diverse range of musical styles. Throughout his tour, Gabriel also demonstrates his theatrical presence, which makes his shows an unforgettable spectacle.
Gabriel’s music is a combination of rock and pop. Although his solo albums often sound a little bit mellower than his Genesis albums, his sonic palette reflects the diversity of his influences. In his mid-80s days, Gabriel worked with U2 producers Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, who crafted a synthesis of experimental and approachable music. So was known for the mainstream hits “Sledgehammer” and “Big Time,” but Gabriel balanced his music’s lyrical content with an offbeat approach. This partnership paved the way for Gabriel’s emergence as a pop star.
While Gabriel’s departure from Genesis was a huge blow, the group was still able to release two albums with Phil Collins on vocals. However, it left a hollow feeling in the overall sound of Genesis. The addition of synthesizers to the band’s sound made the music much more “textured” than before, making it less about thrilling solos. Those who enjoy Genesis should keep listening to the band’s music until the end.
Gabriel’s next project, ‘Up’, explored themes of death and decay. While keeping the same core band, he injected the odd radio-directed single into the album. Overall, the album sounds like a decade’s worth of work.
