I’ve told you guys about my love of music. I listen to just about everything from R&B, pop, rap, and some country. I just love music. Sometimes the songs have deep meanings, sometimes it just makes me want to shimmy and shake my a$$…uhm assets, and sometimes I hear a song and think it describes scene in my life/a book/a moment perfectly. And sometimes they just sound good and fun. The random set of songs in the post are a mix off all the above. Mainly these are my favorite songs that are stuck in my head right now. You know the ones that you sing in the shower or when you’re putting on a one woman concert in the car…yeah those. These are mine, check them out below:
Alessia Cara – Here
Seriously if someone ever asked me what one song could describe my personality it would be this song. Basically this is me. Though I do dance but I am shy, quiet, just leave me in the corner to observe mmmkay…
Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this
An anti-social pessimist but usually I don’t mess with this
And I know you mean only the best and
Your intentions aren’t to bother me
But honestly I’d rather be
Somewhere with my people we can kick it and just listen
To some music with the message
Diplo – Revolution (feat. Faustix & Imanos and Kai
There is a lot of energy in this song. That beat and those lyrics, they get riled up each and every time I hear this song.
Can you see it?
The worst is over
The monsters in my head are scared of love
Fallin people, listen up!
It’s never too late to change your luck
So don’t let them steal your light
E eh eh eh eh
Don’t let them break your stride
E eh eh eh eh
There is light on the other side
And you’ll see all the raindrops falling behind
It’s a revolution
twenty one pilots: Stressed Out
The nostalgia that this song invokes. The good old days before work and bills, where you only had to worry about playing with friends and homework. Sigh. Quick someone toss me a capri sun and animal crackers #AdultingIsHard #WhereIsTheWine (Ps. Check out his little dance during the chorus)
I was told when I get older all my fears would shrink,
But now I’m insecure and I care what people think.
My name’s ‘Blurryface’ and I care what you think
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.
David Guetta feat Sia & Fetty Wap – Bang My Head
The first time I heard who was in this song I thought someone was punking me. I mean Sia and Fetty Wap together in a song? Mind you I like them as individual artist but it sounds like such an odd pairing but it works so so well. I absolutely love this song. Go on, I dare you not to dance.
When you think you’re giving up
Just know, you might think you’re dying but you won’t
And you feel the love stepping out of you
But when you think of giving up, don’t
Bang your head against the wall
You may feel light headed, but you won’t crawl, no, you won’t fall
You will rise above it all
You’ll find what you’re searching for
DNCE – Cake By The Ocean
I suddenly want massive amounts of cake and on the beach. Yeah no cool lyrics with this one, it’s just catchy as hell. Oh and there is a Jonas brother in the group.
Daya – Hide Away
I kinda like that the song flips the script a little. It’s always the guys looking for the good girl, or a good girl bad, but dude yeah where the hell are all the nice guys?!
Boys seem to like the girls
Who laugh at anything
The ones who get undressed
Before the second date
Girls seem to like the boys
Who don’t appreciate
All the money and the time that it takes
To be fly as a mother
Got my both eyes out for Mr. Right
Guessing I just don’t know where to find ’em
But I hope they all come out tonight
There are two versions to the video : the original video but I liked the International shown below
The Chainsmokers ft. ROZES – Roses
Take it slow, but it’s not typical
He already knows that my love is fire
His heart was a stone, but then his hands roam
I turned him to gold and it took him higher
Oh, I’ll be your daydream, I’ll wear your favorite things
We could be beautiful
Get drunk on the good life, I’ll take you to paradise
Say you’ll never let me go
Fallout boy ft. Demi Lavato – Irresistible
1. it’s Fall Out Boy. 2. Demi Lavato 3. Key the N’Sync video reference. 4. See point 1…..
Okay can I just randomly add Immortals…..yes the song has been out since 2014 and yes is the theme song from Big Hero six but let me just say the song is BOSS. My son and I jam out to it every time we watch Big Hero Six watch the video here: Immortals
Major Lazer feat. Ellie Goulding & Tarrus Riley – Powerful
I love Ellie Goulding period and Tarrus Riley is one my favorite voices in reggae. Put them together with a good beat and hook – BOOM – an amazing song.
There’s an energy
When you hold me
When you touch me
It’s so powerful
I can feel it
