I. Love. Music.
I grew up in a musical environment where either singing or performing music (I played both piano & flute) was almost an every day occurrence. I loved fully immersing myself within the melodies, and I am a firm believer that music can impact your psyche.
I’m the type of person who loathes listening to the radio. I hate listening to the same select songs over and over again on loop, with obnoxious deejays talking in my ear. So when it comes to finding new music to listen to, I usually turn to streaming apps/sites like Spotify & Pandora.
And sometimes, I find real gems.
I wish to share some of these wonderful songs and artists that I’ve fallen in love with along the way.
I apologize in advance if any of these songs get stuck in your head…actually, sorry not sorry.
The artist I wanted to feature this week: Halsey!
I am utterly in love with her, and her new CD, BADLANDS. She’s got a fresh sound with addictive beats, and I can’t get enough. I’d recommend Halsey for fans of Skylar Grey and Lorde, or anyone looking for a little something outside of the box.
HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE SONGS:
This is her latest single. Those lyrics, tho.
“We are the new Americana,
High on legal marijuana,
Raised on Biggie and Nirvana,
We are the new Americana.”
Note: If you can work in ‘Biggie’ and ‘Nirvana’ into the same sentence, you’ve got my vote.
I can’t get enough of this song:
“And all the people say
“You can’t wake up, this is not a dream
You’re part of a machine, you are not a human being
With your face all made up, living on a screen
Low on self esteem, so you run on gasoline”…
This song’s lyrics remind me of Aelin from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. <3
“I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut…”
Does that not sound like it’s straight out of the pages of one of Sarah’s books?
I think this is possibly one of my favorites from the BADLANDS CD:
“I’m bigger than my body
I’m colder than this home
I’m meaner than my demons
I’m bigger than these bones…”
The lyrics are little dark and heavy, but I can’t stop, won’t stop. These tracks are on repeat!
Interested in listening to the rest of the album? Go here.
I WANT TO SHARE THE MUSIC LOVE!
Any music recommendations?
