The final week of March is upon us, and we’ve got songs from Milky Chance and Savage Garden to finish things off!
Milky Chance first began recording songs in a homemade studio and uploading them online while working on their eventual debut album Sadnecessary. "Stolen Dance" was their earliest release, soon hitting #1 in their home country of Germany and surrounding countries. This, along with increasing popularity from their online uploads, created an opportunity to release the single outside of Europe. "Stolen Dance" then began topping charts all over the world, from Austria to France to the UK and US. The vocals are sung with a unique style in this song, as prior listeners will know. It’s not crafted exclusively around the rhythm, and some of the pitch-work will surprise you. Guitar has some note-heavy parts we found lower in the mix, giving the chart some diversity.
Savage Garden's debut album Savage Garden premiered with lead single "I Want You" in the mid-'90s. A top 5 single on a trio of American Billboard charts, the song started a wave of success for the band and became a gold-certified single. Strong singles kept the album high on charts and resulted in a 7x platinum album in the US alone, and earning an ARIA Music Award in Australia for Highest Selling Album. The verses are sung fast, so you’ll need to have some solid breath control to make it through. A bit of swing in the song makes the strings more fun to play compared to standard beats. There’s even a short drum solo in the song!
Songs can be purchased individually for $1.99 each. The Rock Band Rivals Season 5 Spotlight Pass can be purchased for $13.49.
