Nick Jonas & The Administration’s "Vesper’s Goodbye"

Who I Am

For those of you who haven’t realized it yet, the Jonas Brothers are awesome. In my opinion. I know I sound ridiculous to some, but the Jonas Brothers aren’t that bad. SERIOUSLY.

Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers did a side project with a few other musicians, and formed a band called Nick Jonas & The Administration. Their debut album is called “Who I Am”, and I am going to talk about one of the songs in this album, which is called “Vesper’s Goodbye”. If you haven’t guessed already, it’s a depressing song. Obviously.

So anyway… Here goes.

I think that the song has a really good beginning, with just the keyboard and vocal. It sets the perfect mood for a sad song. I actually wish that it’s just like that for the whole song, with maybe a little bit of guitar in the chorus. The drums kind of killed the mood.

The melody in the chorus is really beautiful and memorable. Short, sweet, beautiful and memorable. It’s always stuck in my head! Plus, I also think that Nick’s voice really fits this kind of song. Slow pop with a little soul. And I just like his voice generally. It has such a unique character to it.

This song is really, really simple, actually, but it’s very beautiful, in my opinion. The structure of the song is ABABC so it’s pretty obvious that this isn’t a very complicated song. But I think that sometimes, those simple melodies are just so beautiful and memorable, since everyone’s trying to make all these unique and complicated songs. It just makes the simple songs stand out more! And I don’t think there are any clear verses and chorus. I think. I’m pretty sure that’s the case.

Sometimes, this song reminds me a little of the Indonesian song I wrote about earlier. “Saat Terakhir” by ST-12. They’re both about someone dying and they’re both slow songs and… both of the endings are awkward. Seriously, it sounds like the song hasn’t ended yet. The last chord on the keyboard just hangs in the air like that, and then, it’s end of song. The first time I listened to “Vesper’s Goodbye”, I was startled when I realized that my iPod have moved on to the next song!

I think that’s all I wanted to share with you. Listen to it, and I hope that you like it!

And WHY am I so fun to TEASE?????????????????

    ewww a mushy love song… XP
    i agree that his voice fits this genre…but it annoyed me how he didn’t say the ends of some of the words (eg, in the word ‘breath’ he said it ‘brea’ without the ‘th’ at the end.) O.o
    i think the reason why it’s so hard to distinguish the verses and the chorus is bcuz the melody for the verses/chorus is so similar..

    OK, Ms. Alitha. I saw you at acoustic night tonight. And I got to think. Hmmmm….Alitha has a guitar. Alitha is a good musician. And then I had a great idea. I know! Why doesn’t Alitha try to put a song or two together and have her grand vocal/guitar debut at the NEXT acoustic @ Andes? doesn’t that sound awesome? aren’t you excited? You know you are. Oh yes; you know you are.

    And now, I’m done writing this comment.
