Album Cover..

Here is one of Eminem's album cover. 'The Eminem Show'.
This isnt his latest album cover, it is one of his old ones.
The reason in which i have chose to analyse this album cover is because Eminem is one of my favourite artist. As he is unique and unusuall.
I like this alubm cover as the name of the album relates to the picture which is the main image. As it is a a curtain which relates to a show.
This is a good way to promote an album as i think the name of the acutall album 'The eminem Show' gives a story by telling the viewers that the album is going to be about him and his life. The word 'Show' i think tells us this.
The colours of the album RED relates to death, this could mean that the lyrics which he is singing about are related to death and also sadness. The image of Eminem sitting down in a black suite also indicates that the lyrics could be sad and death, as you would wear a black suite for a funeral. Also the one microphone in the middle of the stafe indicates that he is lonely and there is no one else there to comfort him if there is something on his mind.

Album Cover..

Here is the album cover for Lily Allens album. 'Its not me its you'.

I think that it is different from most alubm covers as she has made the first letter of her name the main image on the cover. She has got the capital L in a dark colour. Black. This is so that it is bold and people will notice it, where as if it was a light colour it would look rubbish and not as professional as the background is a light pale colour.

The colours on this album cover i think work well with eachother and make eachother colour stand out that one step more. The colours that she has used are quite simple, but they make an image make look better because they look more professional.

The image of Lily lying on the capital L works well with the image that she is trying to set for the album. Where as most artists make the image of them the main image on the front of an album cover she has done the opposite and made the first letter of her name the main image. This works well as it is different from most alubm covers you see on sale in the shops.

Fun House Poster.. Pink

Here is an image of pinks poster from her newest album FUNHOUSE. This is a very eye catching poster as there are lots of bright colors to catch the audiences attention. The colours of this poster and the poster from her IM NOT DEAD album poster have got the same louadness from the colours that appear on there. I think the colors and the main image of pink in this poster show that she is a lively and bubbly person. Even if the picture of pink wasnt in the centre of the poster you would still be able to notice that it was a poster from her alubm. I think you can tell this basically from the colours and the background of the poster. The banner going digonally through the poster make it stand out more. As it is trying to be the main object on the page, but there is two because of the main mage of pink in the centre. This makes the poster to look more professional and even more eyecatching. The poster would look boring and dull if the main image of pink wasnt the main feature of the poster. It makes it look better because of the large image of her in the centre posing. People will look at this poster and think it is a good poster from her alubm so why shouldnt the songs from the album be good. I think the poster tells alot of things, the main one that it tells you is how good the alubm is going to be. As if there was a rubbish poster for the album there would be ess sales of the album FUNHOUSE.

Music Inspirations... David Guetter- Memories

This music gives me inspiration because of the artist. David Guetta. I think the way in which he produces his music is great. Because he gives the background music and gives the initial set up, but he doesnt sing, although he features in the video. I like this video because of the way it is addressed to the viewers, also the video is very upbeat and gets you in an upbeat mood, this would be the ideal song to get ready to when going out on the town as it will get you in the partying mood.

Music Inspirations.. David Guetta- Gettin' over you

This video gives me inspiration, this is because that it is upbeat and there are a variety of artists in this music video. Also i think that it works well as it there is a womens voice, i think it breaks the music up and gives it a better sound. It also gives me inspiration because there is not just one person singing throughout the whole of the song.

I also like the way in which the musiv video is set. As it is in a recording studio. Aswel i like the fact that people come in from the streets and then they are the dancers and it turns out to be a prty in the recording studio.

This gives me inspiration because of the artist and also the where and how it is set out. I think it is good because there are different scenes and shot in different places. Not just one. This makes the viewers more intreagued into where the video will be going next.

Music Inspirations.. Jay Z & Alicia Keys

This music video gives me inspiration as i like the fact that there is quite a lot of rap through out the video by Jay Z but then there is also just normal singing through the video by Alicia Keys. I like the way in which the video does this and how well it fits together.

Music Inspirations.. Pink-Funhouse

This music video gives me inspiration because i like the artist and the work and videos that she does. This video gives me inspiration as it is about her and her life, and how her life and her house will still be fun when she is on her own. I like how she talks about her own life and how she applys it to a music video.

Music Genres

These are some ideas of music genres that i have thought of which could help me to decide which music video i will choose.
