Hello again and a happy easter. I am now on Easter holidays, which hopefully means more posts whilst I inevitably procrastinate revising.
I have spotify (you should follow me my username is phoebs_14) and I always make monthly playlist. Essentially at the beginning of each month I find artists I want to listen more to, or songs from last month that I still like. I don’t restrain myself to the songs I choose at the beginning of each month, I add more as I go. Anyways, I thought I would share with you my top 5 songs from my March 2016 playlist.
1. What You Know- Two Door Cinema Club
I am going to Reading Festival this Summer and I saw that Two Door Cinema Club are playing on the day I’m going. On spotify this came up as their most popular song and for good reason. Personally I really love the mixture of instruments. The song starts off as busy, then it calms down as the verse begins and gradually builds to the chorus. The chorus is so catchy, if you haven’t listened to this song already I highly recommend it!
2. Stronger- Kanye West
Generally, I stay away from rap. I only listen to Hoodie Allen, that is about as far as it goes. However this song is really easy to get into, and has a cool electronic sound. If you typically don’t listen to rap music, I would still highly recommend this song!
3. Old Yellow Bricks- Arctic Monkeys
This song comes from the Arctic Monkeys second album, Favourite Worse Nightmare. I almost prefer this album to AM, just because there is such a range of songs on this. I might do a whole post on this album, so look out for that. Anyways I really like the harsh, strong beats of the guitar and drums, contrasting with the slightly mellow chorus. Additionally the lyrics are so interesting to listen to, but they always are when it’s the Arctic Monkeys.
4. Live Forever- Oasis
Personally I have never liked oasis. I put it down to one car journey where my brother played their songs for two hours, and it felt very repetitive. I prefer the High Flying Birds. It is much more suited to me, I think. However I do really like this song, because it sounds quite old school, and has a chilled out feeling to it. I love Liam’s voice with the guitar in this song. Maybe I will have to give Oasis another try.
5. Imagine- John Lennon
This is a truly iconic song. I really love singing, and I put this on my playlist because I like singing to it. This song is just calm and simple with such a powerful meaning. It has been particularly iconic this month in light of the Brussels attacks, and I think it is quite a comforting song.
