Making An Ad & IT Track & Marilyn Manson’s Voice Problems

This dream took place in a slightly fictional DeRidder, and I was with my parents and at least one of my brothers.

I made an ad (advertisement) with audio (maybe even video) mentioning that I work for The BP Library, but on my off time I do other interesting things and that people can contact me.

Alanis Morissette – Ironic

Alanis Morissette – Ironic (Official 4K Music Video)

What Is It?

The song Ironic by Alanis Morissette from her 1995 music album Jagged Little Pill.

Here is how Wikipedia describes this song:

“Ironic” is a song by Canadian singer Alanis Morissette.

It was released in February 1996 as the third single from her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1995).

It was written by Morissette and Glen Ballard, and was produced by him.

“Ironic” is a song written in the key of B major, and includes a moderate tempo of eighty-five beats per minute.

The lyrics present several situations that are described as “ironic”; this has led to debate whether any of these actually match the accepted meaning of irony.[1]

For six weeks, the track topped the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart.

It also reached the top five in Australia, New Zealand, and Norway.

In the United States, the song reached number four on April 13, 1996, and since then it has been her highest-charting single on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Ironic” was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The song won the Juno Award for Single of the Year, and received two Grammy Award nominations in 1997, for Record of the Year and Best Short Form Music Video.

French director Stéphane Sednaoui filmed the music video.

In it, Morissette drives through a winter landscape, and she plays multiple roles as her passengers.

MTV nominated the music video for six MTV Video Music Awards in 1996, winning three of them.

The music video was listed on VH1’s “Greatest Music Videos” list and was parodied by DBA Flip, Allison Rheaume, Rusty and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

“Ironic” was written by Alanis Morissette and Glen Ballard, and produced by the latter for her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1995).[3]

In an interview with Christopher Walsh of Billboard, Ballard explained how he and Morissette met, and how “Ironic” was written.

He commented: “I’m telling you, within 15 minutes we were at it— just writing.

‘Ironic’ was the third song we wrote.

Oh God, we were just having fun.

I thought, ‘I don’t know what this is—what genre it is—who knows?

It’s just good’”.[4]

According to the sheet music published at Musicnotes.com, it is a song set in the time signature of common time, composed in a moderate tempo of eighty-two beats per minute.[5]

It is set in the key of B major with Morissette’s vocal range from the tone of E5 to B♭5, and “Ironic” chord progression starts with the sequence of Emaj7–F♯6–Emaj7–F♯6, before changing to F♯–Badd9–F♯–G♯m7 in the chorus.[5]

Juilliard Jazz Ensemble: Tiny Desk Concert

Juilliard Jazz Ensemble: Tiny Desk Concert

What Is It?

The YouTube video Juilliard Jazz Ensemble: Tiny Desk Concert by the YouTube channel NPR Music.

Here is the description for this video:

Nikki Birch | Sept. 2, 2022
Jazz may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of The Juilliard School, but perhaps this series of Tiny Desks will change that.

Tiny Desk and Jazz Night in America celebrate the 20th anniversary of Juilliard Jazz with three Tiny Desk concerts featuring performances by current students and alumni of the prestigious institution.

When the starry-eyed students of the Juilliard Jazz Ensemble first saw the Tiny Desk, they stopped short, exuding awe and wonderment.

After all, several of their favorite artists had performed in this very space — and now here they were, ready to prove themselves and carry on the legacy of both the Tiny Desk and jazz.

The Juilliard Jazz Ensemble performed at the Tiny Desk in celebration of the jazz studies program’s 20th anniversary.

Made up of current students, the ensemble embodies the spirit of community and collaboration that is an essential part of the students’ learning experience.

The ensemble opens with “June” a hypnotic composition by alto saxophonist Coby Petricone-Berg.

We understand immediately, despite the members’ relative youth, this ensemble is not to be trifled with.

A shout-out to the rhythm section is absolutely necessary, as drummer John Sturino, bassist Nico Martinez and pianist Esteban Castro lay back in the cut while ensuring the path ahead for the horns, with Jasim Perales giving us soulful trombone, is smooth like whipped shea butter.

This is grade-A musicianship — everyone listening and unselfishly supporting each other.

For the final selection, Ekep Nkwelle presents her arrangement of Geri Allen’s “Timeless Portraits and Dreams.”.

Her voice soars in this contemplative ballad, a perfect closer that allows each member of the ensemble to shine as they share the hope that, “In tomorrow’s world, let joy and love run free / Let’s hold on to our dreams.”.

Sins Of The Father

What Is It?

The song Sins Of The Father by Donna Burke from the video game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Here is the description for the video above:

Sins of The Father · Donna Burke · Ludvig Forssell · Akihiro Honda

METAL GEAR SOLID Ⅴ ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK SELECTION

℗ Konami Digital Entertainment

Released on: 2015-09-02

Auto-generated by YouTube.

This is how Fandom describes this song:

Sins of the Father” is a song from the game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

It was first featured in the E3 2013 trailer.

In The Phantom Pain, the opening was heard during the montage for Venom Snake and Ocelot’s journey from Cyprus to Afghanistan early in the game, and bars of it were also heard whenever Snake smokes a phantom cigar.

The latter half is also played during the car scene at the end of Mission 30: Skull Face, with the song playing in full during the credits for Chapter 1 around the time Eli receives the English strain of the vocal cord parasite from Tretij Rebenok.

It is also featured as a cassette tape, acquired after completing Mission 31: Sahelanthropus.

It will also be a BGM track that will be made available in the Version 1.02 update for Metal Gear Online 3, named “MGSV:TPP SINS OF THE FATHER.”.

​Overview

The lyrics were written by Ludvig Forssell, performed by Donna Burke and composed by Akihiro Honda.

The version of the song shown during the trailer was edited to fit the footage and better provide clues as to the game’s themes.

During the 2014 Tokyo Game Show, a different verse of the song was heard, matching previously shown notes.
