WONDER GIRLS, THE 1ST K-POP GROUP ON US BILLBOARD
Wonder Girls was a South Korean girl group and band formed by producer Park Jin-youngunder JYP Entertainment in 2006, which debuted in 2007.
In late 2009, "Nobody" charted at number seventy-six on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making the Wonder Girls the first South Korean group to enter the chart.
Wonder Girls are known as "South Korea's Retro Queens",as their music has been noted to contain elements from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
Together with Girl's Generation and 2NE1, Wonder Girls was one of the "Big Three Girl Group" of K-pop. Those three girl group also like the representatives of their company which also known as the "Big Three" (JYP, SM, and YG). On January 26, 2017, JYP Entertainment announced that Wonder Girls were disbanding, with only Yubin and Hyerim renewing their contracts while Yeeun and Sunmi decided to leave the company.

“On 6 July 1957, eight months after his mother died, Paul met
John Lennon. Paul’s schoolmate Ivan Vaughan lived near John and,
knowing they were both obsessed with rock ‘n’ roll, he thought they
should meet. John had a skiffle group called the Quarry Men who
were playing at the local village fete in Woolton.” (…)
“He and John
began talking excitedly; neither of them had met anyone who cared
about rock ‘n’ roll that much before.” Paul McCartney, Many Years From Now - Barry Miles

Joy Division/1980/Manchester/Ian Curtis/Factory/Martin Hannett/Post punk
Joy Division follow up their gothic, nihilistically dark debut album (discounting their 1977 EP) with something that managed to be just as, if not far more, earthshatteringly influential. Aside from getting Factory records picking them up, the success garnered by Unknown Pleasures still had them tallied somewhere bellow obscure. That would change in 1980, because, as should surprise nobody (in retrospect or back then) Ian Curtis took his own life, on May the 18th. After suffering with a pill addiction, severe and untreated bipolar and chronic epilepsy which he had used to his advantage to create some of the most unique stage preformances of all time, he hanged himself. Much like the later on Darby Crash, this seemed to be from a retrospective view, the only conceivable outcome of such a self destructive person. However, unlike the US contemporary hardcore frontrunner, Ian's untimely death was not overshadowed by a Beatle's murder. Ian Curtis' death brought this album into (relatively) mainstream view and the synth pop incorporations from Bernard Sumner only helped it. This makes Ian Curtis' death potentially the most groundbreaking event in post punk history as the fusion of both synth pop and post punk (tracks like Isolation, and the later released single "Love Will Tear Us Apart") would go on to revolutionise the genre entirely. While the concept had been touched by contemporaries such as Wire (one of the few bands comparable to the brilliant achievements of Joy Division), synth pop had always maintained a distance from post punk, potentially because the genre had yet to be fully explored (something that would happen to both genres in the decade to follow) and as such, Joy Division's broad experimentation was a fundamentally important decision in not just the history of post punk, but music in general and can still be heard in everything not written by a corporate board room today. Forever, Ian.
La Rubrica musicale del martedì di domenica – “Hey Jude” dato che oggi è il compleanno di Paul McCartney , 75 anni per la metà dei Beatles ancora in vita, alcuni diranno ma lui è già morto...secondo me è l'originale , poi fate voi.Parliamo di un pezzo meraviglioso che unito al capolavoro di Harrison (Rubrica del 24 gennaio 2017) e Let it Be formano il mio personale podio . La canzone è depositata con i nomi McCartney e Lennon, ma la paternità è tutta di McCartney; era loro abitudine mettere la doppia firma.Circolano voci differenti sul significato di Hey Jude, ma io vi riporto la versione ufficiale e secondo me la più plausibile e profonda. Paul avrebbe scritto questo pezzo per il figlio di Lennon Julian, scosso dal divorzio dei genitori. Il testo è un incitamento a non mettersi sulle spalle tutto il male del mondo ed a trasformare un momento di tristezza in un qualcosa di migliore, di trasformare il dolore. Julian poi diventerà un chitarrista e cantautore. Famosa è la frase “ prendi una canzone triste e rendila migliore” . Quando sto “na pezza” ascolto questo pezzo e scrivo, ed proprio così che è nato “Dark Fairy Tales” ho preso il male, l'ho trasformato in musica nobilitandolo. Consiglio a tutti di trasformare il male in arte e di lasciarsi andare al catartico na na na finale di “Hey Jude” . Grazie Sir Paul e Happy Birthday!
Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better Hey Jude, don’t be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better
And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder
Hey Jude, don’t let me down
You have found her, now go and get her
(Let it out and let it in, Hey Jude)
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin You’re waiting for someone to perform with And don’t you know that it’s just you, hey Jude, you’ll do The movement you need is on your shoulder ...(testo completo su internet).
The Slits/1979/London/Ari Up/Island/Dennis Bovell/Post Punk/Dub
What a fucking weird album. If Siouxie Sioux joined forces with the Raincoats and decided to write reggae/dub music. "What the fuck am I listening to" is a thought i often have while listening to this album, specifically on the opening track, ironically titled "Instant Hit" considering it may be either my least or most favorite song on the album, I'm not quite sure yet (I've been listening to this album for months). It's a lot of things, But instant hit is not one of them. From the strange woodwind instruments to the dub inspired bass which could very well have been Jah Wobble's work off of an album like Second Edition/Metal Box (depending on your distribution area). The vocal harmonies between Ali Up and other band members Viv Albertine and Tessa Politt are really something else though, especially when coupled with the awesomely composed interlocking rhythm section with drummer Budgie (yes, the infamous Siouxie and the Banshees drummer) giving as tight a performance as ever along with Tessa Pollitt's dub inspired bass lines. The album kind of sounds like a fever dream, not necessarily scary and not necessarily calm, just weird. Nothing else sounds quite like it... at least, not unless Siouxie Sioux plans on getting together with the Raincoats to write reggae inspired post punk music.
