DIVA [ˈdiːva] (noun): An operatic prima donna. A female version of a hustler. A usually glamorous and successful female performer or personality. A woman who has self-confidence, self-respect, and hella swagger. She knows who she is and exactly where she is going.
True divas should be treated with respect for their enormous talent and strong will.
I've noticed an astonishing number of songs with catchy whistle hooks as of late. I'm not sure how or why this trend has taken hold, but just today I heard 3 of these on the radio, and I'm sure there are more.
Home- Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
Tighten Up- The Black Keys
Foster The People- Pumped Up Kicks
Good Life- One Republic
Then of course, there are these classic whistling ditties:
Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay – Otis Redding
Wind Of Change – The Scorpions
Don't Worry Be Happy – Bobby McFerrin
Walk Like An Egyptian – The Bangles
I guess Frauline Maria and the Seven Dwarfs had the right idea. Whistling does make ones work go by faster, and more cheerfully. Has anyone else noticed this trend? What other songs am I missing?
