I have to smile. Everyone here at Adamtopia is here because they LOVE Adam Lambert like crazy. That is the commonality that brings us all together. And no matter what else we like about Adam, I think almost all of us first were by the voice, and just had to hear more.
But, once you get past that, we are a very diverse group of folks. Some like to listen to hard rock -- and their favorite performances are when Adam blows the roof off a classic rock song. Others like current pop and dance music, and love it when Adam gets them dancing their fannies off. A few have their iPods filled with jazz and/or classical (me among them) and the only pop/rock on the iPod is ADAM. I love his voice so much I will listen to just about any genre, just to hear it.
As for performance styles, some like it when Adam fronts for a wicked rock band. Some enjoy the precise and sensual choreography. Some are partial to the ballads with minimal accompaniment. Some enjoy the provocative moves, the kisses, the writhing on the stairs, the licking of the microphone. Some think it would be heaven on earth to have just Adam with a piano and maybe an upright bass and drums, doing jazz, R&B, and songs from musical theater (yup, that would be me, too. What I wouldn't give to have been in that Upright Cafe audience.) And there are one or two of us who would be thrilled beyond all reason if he sang opera just once for us.
The power and allure of Adam is that he is soooo talented, so expert, and so uniquely able to cross genres, he brings together fans from many musical backgrounds. We may not agree on a lot of things, but we are united in our appreciation of Adam.
So well said again cassie
I love good songs, good singers I dont care which genre (well maybe not country and rap but I do like some songs from these genres), and Adam covering in such a unique way almost all of them is mind blowing to me.
