Why Haven't I Heard From You by Sarah Afshar

I just had to hop on Smule to record Why Haven't I Heard From You by Reba McEntire. This is the reason why I love Reba McEntire. The woman is literally one of the greatest singers there is and this is the reason she is. This song is literally one of the most catchy songs I have ever heard and the reason why I love Reba so much. And most of you women who read my blog know very well you can relate to this song or have experienced something similar in your life.
To listen to my rendition of Why Haven't I Heard From You, just watch the video above. If the video isn't playing, just click here to listen. I think I may re-record this one in the future.

Update: I re-recorded this. Instead of making a brand new blog post, I wanted to edit this one. You can listen to the new version here. I used the Super Pop filter with the new one and added a little more rock and soul to make it roll.

Perfect by Sarah Afshar

The moment I heard this song, I just loved it. Everything from the melody, harmonizing and composition to the lyrics themselves. I can see why this song is very popular. It's like a modern "Unchained Melody" and Ed Sheeran sings it so beautifully.
And if I am bragging, in my honest opinion, this song is one of the greatest love songs from past until present. It is in the same league as some of the greatest hits that even existed before we existed. I don't think there is anyone on earth who doesn't love this song. And if they don't love it, they appreciate it in some way.
Check out the video to hear my latest collaboration with ADD3H, who sounds amazing. If you cannot hear it, just click here. Remember to listen to this with headphones.

Bohemian Rhapsody, the movie

I am not usually excited about movies, as I haven't watched many lately; however, I really want to see this movie. There is speculation about its release, but I am hearing from sources that it will be released sometime around Fall of this year. I would assume October or November.
This is the trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody. If you cannot see the trailer, simply click here to watch it now. Rami Malek is going to be play Farrokh Bulsara (Freddie Mercury) and I am really looking forward to what he does with the role. Originally, Sasha Baron Cohen was going to be play Freddie, but was later dropped for reasons unknown. I would assume Cohen would deliver an epic character of Mercury, but it is hard to say if the remaining band members would agree due to his comedic background.

This movie was planned over a decade ago, so I can understand if the band is finicky in regards to who they want to play the roles of their characters including Freddie himself. There is obviously a reason they chose Malek over Cohen and based on this trailer, Malek definitely did a great job. If this trailer epitomizes what we can expect to see, I think Malek just may polish an Oscar in the near future.
Queen is one of the greatest bands to exist and Freddie Mercury is one of the greatest artists of all time. He lost his life way too soon. I cannot wait to see Bohemian Rhapsody, as I am looking forward to doing so in the Fall.

Stand My Ground by Sarah Afshar

More than likely you have never heard of this song, as it isn't well known. At least here in the United States; however, if you love symphonic rock and metal music you will know this tune. Originally by Within Temptation, Stand My Ground is a song about empowerment. It is clearly one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs I have heard yet. 

So as I am loving the Smule app, I took it upon myself to record it just now. I added the super pop filter to make it sound a little more commercial. I also added some soul and a tad more rock to make it roll. What do you think? 

To listen to my rendition of Stand My Ground just watch/listen to the video I have shared. If the video will not play, just click here right now.

E.T. by Sarah Afshar

When it comes to music, Katy Perry is one of those women who takes so many risks and as a result, tends to actually come out with a real reward as a result. Her music is fantastic. Although I am certain I've heard some of her background music before, there is no denying her creativity in comparison to most in the industry. When she first came out, I was a fan and today, I am a fan.

Today on Smule, I took the liberties of recording E.T. The song is very trance yet has a very modernize new age twist to it that I love and enjoy. The message is crystal clear in this song. 

To listen to my rendition of E.T. simply watch/listen to the video above. If it doesn't play, just click here right now.

Oh Lord by Sarah Afshar

Once again, I am on Smule. I try to sing as much as I can, as I find myself on the app so often. I decided to record From This Moment's "Oh Lord" which is a song that I really love and enjoy. It's dark yet has so much soul that I can relate to. The lyrics are very deep and the message is something mysterious.

I put a Sarah Afshar spin on this song. I added a little more soul to make it roll because this song already rocks. To listen to my rendition, simply watch or listen to the video above. If it doesn't play, just click here right now to listen to it. And remember to listen to this song using headphones.

Rock On \m/

Dream On by Sarah Afshar

Aerosmith is one of those bands that proves rock and blues go together like Starbucks and mornings. As I have quite a few favorite songs by Aerosmith, I truly do love Dream On. I originally recorded this song in December of last year. You can listen to that recording here

And to be honest, I wasn't really happy nor content with that recording. So, a few minutes ago I decided to record it on Smule. What do you think?

To listen to my rendition of Dream On simply watch/listen to the video above. If it doesn't play, just click here right now. And if you love to sing and haven't joined Smule, you truly need to.
