Top 10 Favourites
Like most of you, I can't do anything without listening to music. It's not only a tune stuck in your head or something you hear on the radio, its a way of communicating - a story being told.
Music helps motivate and inspire me. It helps me when I'm having a bad day or when I just need to think. Lyrics are a way to communicate and connect with listeners all over the world and I admire those who take the time to think clearly about the message they are trying to get across.
Since I am so passionate about music, this might be a recurring theme for me, as well as films. Just to keep you all up to date with my favourite playlists every once in a while.
With my music choice, I don't stick to the same genres. I listen to a variety. I don't really listen to chart music often, but sometimes I discover the perfect song in there for me.
Here are the top 10 songs I love at the moment.
All Time Low - Dancing With a Wolf. This upbeat song is a-maz-ing. Their new album, Future Hearts, is unreal. I'm a big, big fan of these guys and their music has helped me over the years. They have such a fun vibe about them and their music is just soo catchy!
Deaf Havana - Leeches. I got introduced to Deaf Havana's music last month and since then I can't. stop. listening! Their albums are all great but I am officially addicted to Fools and Worthless Liars and Old Souls.
Ed Sheeran - Shirtsleeves. Being the lyrical genius that he is, Ed never disappoints. This song isn't the most upbeat song he has done but, just like most of his songs, it has so much meaning behind it. Love, love, love it!
Fall Out Boy - Twin Skeleton's (Hotel in NYC). You can never go wrong with a bit of Fall Out Boy. I have become obsessed with their two newest albums, Save Rock and Roll and American Beauty / American Psycho. Their songs make me want to get up and dance and make a fool of myself. Surely that's not just me?
The Mowgli's - San Francisco. I spent a lot of my time listening to summer playlists last year on 8tracks, where I came across this fantastic song. It's full of summer vibes and makes me want to go to a beach party.. Shame it's never warm enough here.
One Direction - Drag Me Down. I used to be a fan of these guys a few years ago.. okay, I was absolutely, 110%, off my head, obsessed with them. It was not healthy.. Even though I'm not as big of a fan anymore, I still love some of their music. To me, this song has a different vibe to the rest of their music and I just love it so much. I would be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to their new album.
Shawn Mendes - Kid In Love. I've been following Shawn since he started doing videos on Vine. His album is incredible and there has been so much thought put into these songs.
Twin Atlantic - Crash Land. This song was featured on their 2011 album - Free - and it never gets old. They never let their fans down. This song has so much meaning behind it and is extremely moving.
The View - Voodoo Doll. Like most bands I listen to, The View never disappoint. Whenever I hear their music I just want to scream the lyrics as loud as I can. This song is from their new album, which is released in September and it kind of makes me want to become a Voodoo doll!? Just kidding!
5 Seconds of Summer - Close as Strangers. I've been a huge fan of these idiots for a while now and seeing them grow into a huge, talented band brings a tear to my eye. Their songs are so catchy and meaningful and they're bound to change your mood whenever you listen to them.
Do any of you like these artists/bands or anyone similar?
Hope you've had a good day!
