Selena Gomez can sing, Daddy Cool - Boney M

:crazy:

I have heard a few very good Selena Gomez songs and am really impressed with some of her singing.
Selena has come through the Disney kids route with Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus), Demi Lovato and Miranda Cosgrove.

They have all maybe been pushing out too great a quantity of songs, so that many are lower quality. But with her best songs Selena Gomez is way the best singer and she has done a few very good songs. Her poor songs can be very poor but at her best I think she compares well with the great Joan Baez and could be great with some songs like Unquiet Grave modernised and in her own singing style ?

Two of Selana's songs that I do like are 'Naturally' and 'A Year Without Rain', though the lyrics are maybe not great and some of the singing may have some technology boosting.

A Year Without Rain, 2010 Selena Gomez and The Scene.

Oooooh
Can you feel me when I think about you?
With every breath I take
Every minute, no matter what I do.
My world is an empty place,
Like I've been wandering the desert
For a thousand days
Don't know if it's a mirage
But I always see your face, baby

I'm missing you so much
Can't help it, I'm in love
A day without you is like a year without rain
I need you by my side
Don't know how I'll survive
A day without you is like a year without rain
Ooh, woooaaahh woaahh

The stars are burning
I hear your voice in my mind
Can't you hear me calling
My heart is yearning
Like the ocean that's running dry
Catch me I'm falling

It's like the ground is crumbling underneath my feet
(Won't you save me)
There's gonna be a monsoon
When you get back to me
Oh, baby

I'm missing you so much
Can't help it, I'm in love
A day without you is like a year without rain
I need you by my side
Don't know how I'll survive
A day without you is like a year without rain
Ooh, woooaaahh woaahh

So let this drought come to an end
And make this desert flower again
I'm so glad you found me
Stick around me
Baby, baby, baby, oh
It's a world of wonder with you in my life
So hurry, baby
Don't waste no more time
And I need you here
I can't explain
But day without you
It's like a year without rain
Ooh

I'm missing you so much
Can't help it, I'm in love
A day without you is like a year without rain
I need you by my side
Don't know how I'll survive
A day without you is like a year without rain
Ooh, woooaaahh woaahh

GrimDad you are right that Selena Gomez can sing.
I do like her one of her most recent songs 'Love You Like A Love Song'.

Love You Like A Love Song, 2011 by Selena Gomez.

It's been said and done
Every beautiful thought's been already sung
And I guess right now here's another one
So your melody will play on and on, with best of 'em
You are beautiful, like a dream come alive, incredible
A centerfold miracle, lyrical
You've saved my life again
And I want you to know baby

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
And I keep hittin' re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
And I keep hittin' re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

Constantly, boy you played through my mind like a symphony
There's no way to describe what you do to me
You just do to me, what you do
And it feels like I've been rescued
I've been set free
I am hyptonized by your destiny
You are magical, lyrical, beautiful
You are...I want you to know baby

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
And I keep hittin' re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
And I keep hittin' re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

No one compares
You stand alone, to every record I own
Music to my hear that's what you are
A song that goes on and on

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
And I keep hittin' re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I love you...like a love song...

Hear a bit ;

Well yes Selana can certainly sing, and I do like her 'Like A Love Song'. To me it has a touch of the young-teenager lyric like Sam Cook's classic song 'Only Sixteen' which I also like a lot though a rather different lost-young-love song,

Only Sixteen - Sam Cooke 1959 (B.Campbell)

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
I loved her so
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know.

We'd laugh and we'd sing
and do the little things
that made my heart glow
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know.

Why did I give my heart so fast
it never will happen again
But I was a mere lad of sixteen
I've aged a year since then.

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
with eyes that would glow
But she was too young to fall in love
and I was too young to know.

(So why did you give your heart so fast)
Oh it never will happen again
(But you were a mere lad of sixteen)
I've aged a year since then.

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
with eyes that would glow
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know
Oh she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know.

Well yes Selena can certainly sing and she has done a few very good songs but also a lot of weak songs.
I would really like to see her improve the average quality of the songs she records, and maybe include a few good covers.

Selena could do a good version of the Joan Baez classic 'The Unquiet Grave' maybe, and something like 'Donna' (maybe rewritten as 'Harry') ? And maybe Selena could do something around the medieval 'Ancient person of my heart' - the nearest that I know of being the perhaps cheaper 'My heart belongs to daddy' the successful 1938 stage musical song written by Cole Porter with covers by Eartha Kitt 1953, Marilyn Monroe 1960, Ella Fitzgerald 1972, Sophie Milman 2004 and others - some with lyric variations.



OR,

Ancient Person Of My Heart

Ancient person, for whom I
All the flattering youths defy,
Long be it ere thou grow old,
Aching, shaking, crazy, cold,
But still continue as thou art,
Ancient person of my heart.

On thy withered lips and dry
Which like barren furrows lie,
Brooding kisses I will pour,
Shall thy youthful heat restore.
Such kind show'rs in autumn fall
And a second spring recall :
Nor from thee will ever part,
Ancient person of my heart.

Thy nobler part, which but to name
In our '**' would be counted shame,
By age's frozen grasp possessed
From his ice shall be released,
And, soothed by my reviving hand,
In former warmth and vigour stand.
All a lover's wish can reach
For thy joy my love shall teach,
And for thy pleasure shall improve
All that art can add to love.
Yet still I love thee without art,
Ancient person of my heart.

:wtf:

Selena can sing, but sadly she seems to be side-lining her great singing and her band The Scene and her singing fans for 'acting'. Following her Monte Carlo film that involves some three young girls messing around... for which Oscars are not to be expected. She is apparently doing more film parts this year, seemingly now trying to become an adult badgirl actress.

But while she no doubt could be a great singer, I see little sign of her being great at non-singing acting, and her age being 19 seems to suit building an adult singing career more than an adult acting career which undoubtedly needs an age nearer 21. Hopefully she may get it better sooner rather than too later.

Well Clare I hear that Selena is getting back to some music soon, and taking Katy Perry and Justin Timberlake as her role models. To me that looks like going for popularity first and skill last, and maybe rather like taking the Dollar as a role model. But the public shift with fashions and can be stupid, and could easily lead someone to alcohol, smoking, drugs, ** and maybe even worse.
I would rather she study Joan Baez or Imelda May and maybe become a more fun, rocking and positive version of them ?

For now it is looking unlikely to me that Selena will put much effort into developing her musical skills, but I will still look forward to seeing what new songs she does.

Selena Gomez has not done much singing since dumping her group The Scene, and it shows in her latest single 'The Heart Wants What It Wants'. It is not a song to please music-lovers, though it may well please Selena herself.

The song is really awful and the video with it is cringeworthy - its message is the absolute opposite of her friend Demi Lovato's great song 'Skyscraper'.

To avoid poor songs like this Selena maybe needs to spend a year or two getting back into her music properly, or maybe drop music ?!

Unfortunately lately Selena no longer seems to take her singing seriously, unlike her friend Demi Lovato who just performed great at the White House! Watch here - https://goo.gl/qruXCf
