The first, “Downtown” by Macklemore, has been out for quite some time but I’m late to the party. There’s something strangely summery about its chorus and I secretly love how disjointed it is. And Macklemore is such a little cutie so what’s not to like?!
Secondly, I am loving “Ex’s & Oh’s” by Elle King (however, I find the spelling of the title slightly disturbing…). It’s not that the song is particularly relatable or that it’s an intricate song – it just works and it’s been on repeat in my car all day.
I must also admit that I’ve been binging on Olly Murs’ “Oh My Goodness”; but the less said about that, the better.
I’m not even ashamed to say that I’ve started to like Bieber’s music a lot more recently and I don’t think I’m alone in saying that.
Because of how catchy his most recent songs are I can momentarily forget his somewhat questionable behaviour of the last few years and just focus on his music. Momentarily remember.
“Love yourself” is my ultimate Bieber song right now. It’s so relatable and chilled (thanks, I believe, down to Ed Sheeran’s contribution) that I forget it’s by Bieber at all. It’s the kind of song you can sing with your friends and you all know exactly who the other person is singing it about.
I’ve always loved Taylor Swift’s music – she’s my guilty pleasure except I’m not guilty about it; I embrace it. I’m very late on the “Blank Space” bandwagon but now I’m on it I don’t want to get off. Is it cheesy? Yes. But it’s catchy and I like the message behind it. In fact, I’m loving her most recent album in general. Her music has long been accompanying me on journeys in the car and walks and now there’s yet more of her voice to enjoy. Chuffed.
Yippeeeeeeeee, it’s back!
Recently, I’ve been putting some of my older music onto my ipod and I’ve been going back to songs from one of my favourite summers: 2007.
I’ve been getting a bit addicted to “The Feeling” and, as a result of that, this week’s song of the week is “Rosé”.
I don’t think I understood the alcohol related context the first time round so it makes a lot more sense now. I don’t actually like the drink but that’s beside the point.
I don’t know why I like the song, it just appeals to me.
(We’ll ignore the fact that I’ve been absent for ages and pretend it never happened…)
This week I am ridiculously obsessed with “The Wire” by Haim. Although I don’t know many of the words and even managed to pronounce the name of the band incorrectly, this song has been a favourite of mine this week.
At work I turned the radio up and danced, a bit too excitedly, when it came on and I also put it on my ipod – a sure sign that I like it.
I don’t really know the message of the song but the song itself is bouncy and cheerful and, as we approach the beginning of winter, that’s all I really need from a song.
