    Lyrics

    Every day
    You're every face that I can see
    Every thing I wanna be

    Every night
    I feel you looking down on me
    Watching over me

    You touch me I feel you
    Your presence surrounds me
    I float away

    You hold me I'm with you
    Wherever you'll find me
    I'm here to stay

    You are my guide
    You are my light
    You take me to a place
    Where I can shine

    Where I can shine...

    What is Progressive (© Daniel Lesden)
    What does Progressive mean

    First things first, the word “progressive” is an adjective that gives some quality characteristics to the noun. In music, the words like this were introduced to describe a certain mood of the genre, for example:
    Deep - House
    Hard - Techno
    Uplifting - Trance
    Progressive - Psy

    Eventually, these words became part of the genre names, but their original meaning hasn’t changed.

    Talking about progressive specifically, it gives a sense of... well, you guessed it, — progression. Whereas in some other genres you just want to skip forward and finally listen to “that drop”, in Progressive music that sense of progression and immersive building-up is the goal itself. It’s very consistent, often with no climax or big emotional peaks which other genres typically have.

    And the difference is not only in aesthetic. In progressive music, a sequence (whether it be a melody or, let’s say, a pad) lasts much longer, sometimes it can go pretty much the entire track duration as the opposite to non-progressive music which typically changes sequences every 16 or 32 bars.

    Прогрессивная музыка (© Илья Бирман)

    В случае с музыкой, progressive является просто антонимом хитовости.

    Хитовый принцип состоит в том, чтобы сделать в треке некий яркий кусок (условно его можно назвать припевом) и более спокойные места (куплеты), и чередовать их: приготовились — подняли ручки — оторвались — отдохнули — снова приготовились — подняли ручки — оторвались. В хите часто достаточно послушать припев, чтобы понять, «о чём эта песня».

    К названиям разных музыкальных стилей иногда можно добавить прилагательное progressive, чтобы уточнить, какой подстиль имеется в виду. Так, бывает progressive house, progressive breaks или progressive trance. Progressive house — одно из ответвлений хаус-музыки, как и tech house, disco house, deep house.

    Ещё в русском языке есть удивительный в своей бессмысленности термин «прогрессивная музыка». Прогрессивная музыка — это такая музыка для «прогрессивной» молодёжи. То есть, крутая музыка для крутых парней и девчонок.

    Прилагательное «прогрессивный», наделяемое смыслом «современный», «модный», «актуальный», для русскоговорящего человека автоматически переносит свой смысл и на английское слово progressive, и поэтому progressive house кажется не просто хаусом, а таким очень «прогрессивным» хаусом. При этом все прекрасно понимают, что слово «прогрессивный» никакого конкретного смысла не несёт, и поэтому считают, что такое определение музыкального стиля лишено всяких оснований. Действительно, что значит «передовой хаус»?
