I Am…Sasha Fierce
I selected this song because I was very interested it was very catchy first of all. Secondly and more pertaining to this class the Synth sounds were Amazing. They are not the typical lead dance-floor synths they more serve as background and textural synths used to add some spice to the listeners ear. A few guitar synth emulations atleast thats what it sounds like to me where also interesting but most importantly I really appreciate how all of the sounds FX and tone of the beat complimented the the tone of beyonces vocals and it did not seem over-done or over-processed. Everything was just right.
