Vocal music is a genre of music performed by one or more singers, with or without instrumental accompaniment, in which singing (i.e. vocal performance) provides the main focus of the piece. Music which employs singing but does not feature it prominently is generally considered instrumental music (e.g. the wordless women's choir in the final movement of Holst's The Planets) as is music without singing. Music without any non-vocal instrumental accompaniment is referred to as a cappella.
Vocal music typically features sung words called lyrics, although there are notable examples of vocal music that are performed using non-linguistic syllables, sounds, or noises, sometimes as musical onomatopoeia. A short piece of vocal music with lyrics is broadly termed a song.
Just One Night is the fourth pop rock album of British model-turned-singer Samantha Fox. For this 1991 album, she once again enlisted Full Force to produce her album and Robert Clivillés and David Cole of C+C Music Factory. However, this album was unsuccessful to many of the critics. The first single, "(Hurt Me, Hurt Me) But the Pants Stay On" had some radio airplay but failed to receive much attention, just like the album's second single, "Another Woman (Too Many People)", which however charted moderately in some Continental European countries. The third single, "Just One Night", and fourth single, "Spirit Of America", received no attention at all.
The album was reissued in 2012 as a double-cd special edition
Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt is the first studio album by the Christian alternative rock band Breakfast with Amy, released in 1990. Produced by the band at Casbah Studios in Fullerton, California, Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt was the group's first release on Narrowpath Records. The album showcases songwriting and production values unorthodox for Christian musical groups in the late 1980s, demonstrating neo-psychedelic and punk rock influences cited by members, including Echo & the Bunnymen and early U2.
Despite its status as a debut release on an independent record label, the album sold in excess of 8,000 copies in the first two months following its release, during which the band toured briefly to promote their debut. In 1995, due to the sustained cult status of the band among many collectors, Graydot Records re-mastered and re-released the album with a collection of additional bonus tracks, including some of the band's early demos.
In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
