Hello, I'm Yaniv and welcome to my workshop!
You can now find all the songs I've ever released (or collaborated on) in a neat, ever-growing Spotify playlist!
New releases are on top, and below you'll find all the songs I've done neatly organized for your enjoyment
So, after the obscure indie singles, time for some guilty pleasures! Two songs from my childhood hero, and a pretty great pop musician, Robbie Williams!
"Strong" is the opener and one of the lead singles of Williams 1998's album "I've Been Expecting You". It was inspired by some of his most hardcore fans, who, Williams confessed, "scared the living daylights out of him". "I just wanted them to understand I'm not being rude, but I'm feeling a bit scared of everything," he said. It's a great rock-pop ballad, full of epic guitars and vocals, and a catchy sing-along chords.
The singalong potential was not wasted - on the final night of Williams's 2003 Knebworth House concerts, 125,000 ticketholders sang Strong to set the world record for Most Karaoke Participants. Williams and his audience held the record until 2009. It remains one of his most well known songs and a concert staple.
"Come Undone" was the second single from his 2002 hit album "Escapology". It's fairly dark in nature - Williams wrote this is about his days of doing cocaine and the effect it had on his mom: "They're selling razor blades and mirrors in the street," "Because I'm scum and I'm your son." It says a lot about it being high one minute and low the next, and the influences of fame. It was also equipped with a rather controversial music video, in which Williams is shown having sex with two models while unsettling images of snakes, rats and bugs are spliced in. It's controversial nature might have limited his MTV/charts success, but it remains one of his classic tunes, and it's great fun to play on all instruments.
I had this one in the works for a while - in fact it was supposed to come out as an opener to The National Festival for C3X, alongside "Either Way", but for whatever reason it wasn't finished in time. So recently I've came back to it, and here it is.
"Hummingbird" is a Wilco classic, from their brilliant 2004 album "A Ghost is Born". Gorgeously arranged, with different musical detours along the way, it quickly became a fan favorite. It's quite complex musically, with a lot of chords, scale changes, and the whole song transposes halfway through, and yet it sounds simple and sincere. The song clearly means a lot to Tweedy — in concert, he can’t keep still when he sings it, often breaking out the dance moves, like a hummingbird himself. Gameplay wise, it's fun and entertaining on all instruments. Hope you like it!
So hmm, hey? Maybe you remember me?
I took a break from charting, and it ended up being quite a lengthy one. But now I'm back! Maybe not to the scale I worked in before, but I'll definitely continue doing some charting work when I feel like it, in my free time. So I'm happy to present:
Yaniv's 2020 Discoveries pack
It's been a while, and while I wasn't charting for most of it, I was (as always) listening to loads of music. And discovered a lot of cool new stuff. So the theme of this pack is my recent discoveries - and specifically, all of the 4 songs released today where songs I've heard for the first time in 2020 (which means I didn't know them at the time my last releases came out). So... here we go!
