You Need to Hear This!

Music is such an important thing to me. I listen to it practically 24/7 and I turn to it when I’m happy, sad, bored, and even when I’m mad. It’s like caffeine that wakes me up in the mornings and I  doubt I would be able to function without it. I have a pretty widespread taste, ranging from the most popular music on the radio to extremely obscure songs that may be a little odd. Because of my obsession with music, I wanted to talk about what I have been listening to, on repeat, lately. These aren’t all recent but still very worth listening to. 


These are my go-to chill out songs:

Heartbeats- Jose Gonzalez

Stay Alive- Jose Gonzalez

Between the Bars- Elliott Smith

Letting in- Beauville

Shiver- Lucy Rose

Nothing Arrived – Villagers

Fire and the Flood – Vance Joy


If you’re wondering how I find my music, the truth is it almost all comes from recommendations from other people. If someone posts something saying “listen to this song”, I’ll add it on Spotify. Sometimes I have to listen to a song ten times before I like it and sometimes I like in the first 10 seconds but I always give suggested songs a chance. 


Pump up/ Happy Songs:

Lose Yourself- Eminem

Steady 1234- Vice

Another Day of Sun- La La Land Cast

Start a Fire- John Legend

Shape of You- Ed Sheeran

Beauty in the World- Macy Grey

I Always Knew- The Vaccines

Left Hand Free- alt-J

YOUTH- Troy Sivan

Price Tag- Jessie J


I am constantly finding new songs that I will listen to for awhile and then once I’m tired of  I move on, but it’s always fun when I find old music that I forgot about and I can then wear out again.
