***** Es wird momentan überall diskutiert, ob die neue Katy-Perry-Single "Roar" zu sehr nach "Brave" klingt. In den Strophen gibt es tatsächlich unüberhörbare Parallelen, aber zu ähnlich klingen die beiden Songs auch wieder nicht. Im Übrigen finde ich "Brave" besser als "Roar".
***** Guter Song von Sara Bareilles, aber für mich jetzt nicht so speziell. Ohne Zweifel gut produziert. Ich finde einfach, dass sie was spezielles einbauen wollte mit den Beats und anderem, was ihr aber für meinen Geschmack nicht so richtig gelungen ist. Wäre im Radio wohl gut angekommen, aber leider ja wohl nirgends in der Schweiz gespielt worden! :/ Ich finde es schade, wird eine solche Künstlerin auf dem weltweiten Markt nicht ernst genommen, obschon sie uns normalbürgern ja wohl am ähnlichsten ist. Nicht so wie Rihanna, Lady Gaga und Co. Hoffe irgendwann schafft sie noch den weltweiten Durchbruch und kann das one Hit wonder Image abschütteln. Brave schlechter als Love Song aber gute 5*
Seit eine bei "The Voice Of Switzerland" den Song sang, jetzt auch hier in den iTunes Charts. Denke dass es reichen wird um den Sprung in die Top 75 zu schaffen. Mag es ihr gönnen, sie ist eine grossartige Musikerin! Last edited: 08.04.2014 14:24
**** ▒ Een tikkeltje vreemde, maar leuke plaat uit april 2013 van de vandaag 34 jaar geworden Amerikaanse zangeres en pianiste: "Sara Beth Bareilles" !!! Jammer dat het géén succesje in de Nederlandse hitlijsten is geweest !!! Dik 4 sterren ☺!!!
**** I grew to really like it and in fact I like it more than "Roar". Can see why comparisons have been made but I don't think "Roar" is a carbon copy of this or anything. Lyrically it's great and I'm happy to see her score another hit in Australia, even if "Love Song" is still much better. Last edited: 28.04.2014 12:49
****** Thought she would fade into oblivion after Love Song, well I was wrong. Many people brought it probably because of its very similar sound to Katy Perry's brilliant track Roar.
Apparently there is no drama between herself and Katy Perry over the similarities. In fact, she said; "I mean, I can't say that I think that they don't sound similar. I've known Katy a really long time and we're friends. And at the end of the day, it was really only good for my song. So, thank you, Katy Perry for that!"
And it's charted!
Edit: Really liking this now! Hopefully it becomes a big hit! 3 --> 5 Edit 2: It's now her biggest hit in Australia! Awesome track. 5 --> 6 Last edited: 27.03.2014 05:51
**** There's the old phrase that bravery is synonymous with stupidity. I disagree though. For example, if you were to say The Beatles, Nirvana, Ke$ha, Queen, The Smiths, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Arcade Fire, The Velvet Underground, One Direction, Beyonce, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, Rihanna, The Doors, Soulja Boy, Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Bon Jovi, Eminem, Macklemore, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Nas, OutKast, or whoever the next artist popular among really no particular circle is overrated/awful/whatever with no real attempt at justifying and making yourself seem perfectly rational, you're certainly not being brave. Regurgitating something that's already been said by thousands upon thousands of people with the impression that it makes you seem edgy, nothing brave about that, but certainly plenty stupid.
Anyway, I don't have any negativity to add to the picture as I enjoy this tune. I'm still convinced that every song that seems to use this same sort of staccato percussion line (ie the one in the verses) is directly or indirectly influenced by Grizzly Bear's "Two Weeks". There's actually something eerie of having followed music for long enough to see that song rise to prominence and now having its impact splash out into areas that surely could never have been comprehended.
Still it works here, and gives it just a little more punch (though the surprisingly raw hip-hop beat kicks it off well too). All up it's quite uplifting and never gets boring for me. Sara does well particularly with the chorus, and once again managing to offer something pleasant that stands out in the charts, just like 5-6 years ago. Bravo to "Brave"!
*** I just can't seem to warm to anything by her since the lovely 'Love Song' and it didn't help we only just got past Katy Perry's 'Roar' when this started getting significant exposure. I personally like 'Roar' a lot more and I hate the video for this!
****** Great, uplifting song. I know it sounds a lot like "Roar" and also "Air Balloon", though it is lots of fun and a great follow-up to "Love Song" (in terms of commercial singles). Last edited: 30.06.2014 12:24
