You want a future and you want it now!

Now I really couldn’t decide on a song. I know I have already done one for this week but I thought seeming as I have been listening to Don Broco the last couple of days in preparation of seeing them tonight, I wanted to post one of theirs. Treat all your ears to a bit of their sound. (You can thank me later 😉 I’m joking, but hey, you never know, you may end up liking them!)

This was such a hard choice for me to just pick one song. There’s so many songs, that even when I’m doing something else whilst listening to music, will suddenly catch my attention and I’ll find myself singing along. There’s Hold on, Further, Priorities, Tough on you, Superlove and Nerve (tbh the list goes on and on) but I decided on keep on pushing. I chose this one because I really enjoy the lyrics, and feel very much in a similar position to the song. They talk about doing all the things that our friends are doing, such as getting married, buying houses, being in relationships, etc. and how they can’t see themselves doing that just yet. And I agree, I really can’t see myself being in that position anytime soon, so this song always cheers me up when I think might be missing out and become super jealous of my friends’ situation, I remember that I don’t actually want that and that’s okay – I’m still only young and have plenty of time for that.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do 🙂

So, we’ll raise the stakes and show them that we’re different 

You caught me! I plead guilty. I have chosen yet another song from the ones that are State Champs. I have this skill where I can listen to the same band continuously for weeks and not get bored of it, so hence why there’s another song from them. I haven’t listened to anyone else this week except them. I will have to change it up as the whole reason I am getting to see them Saturday is because of Don Broco, so will have to refresh myself with them!

But for now here is Leave You In The Dark.

I’m just trying to find my place in this world

I am off to see Don Broco in a couple of weeks an I was looking up who their support acts were going to be. One of them is State Champs. An pop-punk band from New York. I had never heard of them before, but I am so glad I have given them a listen before being lucky enough to see them live. They are a great band, and the lead singers has an incredible voice – so much emotion and power. I have had their two albums on repeat all day, so safe to say I am becoming quite a fan. Here’s just one of their many songs, making an appearance on my Song of the Week: If I’m Lucky

I hope you like your pictures facing down

In honour of their 10th year anniversary of their album A lessons in Romantics, and that fact that I am off to that tour next week with the Bestie, I thought it appropriate to post one of the songs from that album: If you wanted a song written about you, all you had to do was ask. 

Such a long winded title but it’s a good song and one I remember singing to when I was 14. I have recently got back in to listening to this album. I mean it is always one I keep going back to but more so the past few weeks.
Why this song in particular? I don’t know, I was walking from the station the other night to my car, and for some reason my brain really started listening to this song in my headphones and listening intently to the lyrics more so than I did to the other songs on my journey home. Since then, I have been humming it non stop and keep listening to it so, now it’s your turn to give it a listen and get it stuck in your head!

Enjoy!

Don’t be another empty vessel, free your mind

I am surprised I haven’t put Rationale as my tune of the week before now! I have seen him umpteen times and he never gets old. His voice, and his sincere love for his fans is enough to be a fan of him, but when he adds in his killer dance moves, you can’t help but fall for him and his music.

I have chosen this song in particular: Vessels because I love watching him perform this song live. The way he moves his body at the drop and change of the beat. The way he pitches his voice is incredible. I love the music, the whole feel of this song. It really is so unique.

Over it 🎸

Song of the week: Over it – This Wild Life

The second time and in a row that This Wild Life have appeared on my tunes, but I’m addicted to them. I’ve been listening to them non stop. All their songs just seem so relevant, and real.

This song really sits with me because I’m over it. At last I’m over it. Yes, F, I’m done with that whole situation. I’m moving on, I’m starting to feel again, starting to heal. And as the song says, he took me for granted and I learned a lesson: I was at my worse when I was with him.

I’m at the edge of the world

This acoustic version of Bring Me The Horizon’s – Sleepwalking, by The Wild Life, is simply charming. It really brings a different emotion to the song.
Check it out:

The Wild Life

No CD

Today has been a day full of grime and hip hop. Dizzie, Giggs, Chase and Status, Stormzy, Kano, Akala and of course, my new find, Loyale Carner.
This song has been on repeat for the last ten minutes. The lyrics, the beat, it is just so catchy:
