There is so much good music circulating around at the moment, that I feel it is so absolutely necessary to cover some of the music that I can’t get out of my head. The list of songs is in no particular order, just how it comes to my head.I am always on the look out for some new music, so if there is anything you feel that I just have to be listening to, just let me know in the comments below.
1.) Same Love by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (ft. Mary Lambert) – This song is so simple, yet so profound. Just a piano, drumset, horns, and the voice of Macklemore. Mary Lambert’s chorus is so melodic and uplifting that it leaves me inspired. The music video is also beautifully crafted, if you get a chance you should YouTube it.
2.) Schoolin’ Life by Beyoncé – The song appears on the deluxe edition of her 2011 album “4”. It is infectious, and makes you want to groove, like any normal Beyonce song does. Perfect for getting ready to go out for a night with your friends. “I’m crazy all day, all night, who needs a degree when you’re schoolin’ life.” If that’s not the best anthem for independence, I don’t know what is!
3.) My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) by Fall Out Boy – This song is my guilty pleasure of the moment. I am reliving my early high school “angst-y phase” via the much awaited return of this band. Such a great way to take out any stress: jamming out to this song.
4.) E.V.O.L. by Marina and the Diamonds – Released as a Valentines Day gift to her fans, this song is a great one to listen to in a car, with the top down as loud as possible. She knows how to show her single girl swag, and everyone else now can to, through this song of course. Maybe shes onto something that love is evil, or evol according to her.
5.) We Got The World by Icona Pop – This song does not get enough credit. It is so absolutely infectious, and just makes you want to dance around like you have not a single care in the world.
6.) Cold Turkey by Shoshana Bean – This song is so great because it is so reminiscent of the late 60’s. That R&B/Jazz sound, that set the standard for today, is perfectly emulated in this song. Listen to it on a record player, and so many of the artistic nuances take over your soul, infecting you with its jive beats.
7.) Picking Up the Pieces by Paloma Faith – The beautiful orchestrations that back her unique voice leave quite the combined impressions. Take Florence Welch, Lana del Rey, and Adele, smash them together and you get Paloma Faith. Basically what I am trying to say is that it is amazingness.
8.) Nuclear by Destiny’s Child – The perfect of most perfect sexual love songs. Its sounds just as if Destiny’s Child hasn’t left us for a decade, they picked up right where they left us. That spot happens to be serenading us with three part harmonies, and the beats of a keyboard.
9.) Suit & Tie by Justin Timberlake (ft. Jay-Z) – I am so unnecessarily happy that he is singing again, and making some quality music at that. If the rest of his album is like this song, it is going to be a game changer!
10.) Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris (ft. Florence Welch) – I am a little biased when I say that I have been listening to Harris’ songs a bit more, since I found out he is my schools spring concert, but I love this song so much. Anyone who can combine my two favorite things, EDM and great belting has got my vote for president.
