I know it’s far too early to be doing any sort of January round-up posts, but that’s not going to stop me today! I already have a couple of exciting blog posts scheduled for the end of the month, so I have decided to slot this little post in here.
Now that I have upgraded to the premium WordPress plan, I can add video content to my blog posts. I would like to start a YouTube channel in the future so I can share my videos here as well, but in the meantime, it seems a waste not to utilise this feature.
I love music as much as the next person, so I thought it would be nice to share with you the tunes I have been listening to this month. I like a wide range of music as you’ll be able to tell from my selections below! My favourite genre is rock music in its many different forms.
I hope you enjoy my completely random selection of tunes! Do you like any of these songs? What have you been listening to this month?
I have been listening to Waterparks since March last year when they supported All Time Low at a gig I went to. At the time, I didn’t pay much attention to them, but I can’t get enough of them now! They are a pop-punk band, so check them out if you’re into that. Their slow songs are relatable and sweet, yet their other songs are catchy and fun.
This is such a relatable song! You know when you fancy someone and you feel all shy and awkward around them? Well, this is what this song is about. I just love Taylor’s new album- I can’t stop listening to it! I have also been listening to ‘Blank Space’ from Taylor’s 1989 album a lot as well.
I have been a big fan of Linkin Park for yearsss. It doesn’t matter how many times I listen to this song or any of their other songs, I never get bored of them. All of the songs speak to me; I am very grateful for that. R.I.P. Chester
I remember when the lyric video first got uploaded onto YouTube- it has just blown up since then! Of course, you already know, but Ed dueted with Beyonce and Andrea Bocelli on this song, but the original is my favourite. This song is just perfect (get it?!)- love it!
SWMRS is another band I discovered at a gig I went to last year- I haven’t stopped listening to them since! They are an American punk-rock band that who are a bit on the quirky side (as you’ll see from the video!). They are amazing live- I’d love to see them again. I look forward to seeing what they’ll release next.
This sort of song isn’t usually on my radar, but I kept hearing it on the radio all the time- I really like it! It’s just a catchy, upbeat kinda song; it’s nice to listen to something different sometimes. The video is pretty cool and entertaining as well!
I was listening to my old iPod the other day on shuffle and this song came on- I love this song, but I had completely forgotten about it! It’s a very emotional song about a relationship between a father and son. Scrolling through the song comments to YouTube also reminded me this song features on Guardians Of The Galaxy 2.
I love the original song by Simon & Garfunkel, but this cover my Disturbed is pretty awesome as well. This is a very deep and emotional song with lots of meaning.
Even though The Titanic is one of my favourite films of all times, it had been a while since I watched it. But it just so happens, it was on TV the other day; I have fallen in love with it again, and the soundtrack. The instrumental version of the song is both magical and heartbreaking at the same time- it makes me speechless.
This song is all about pretending to happy when you’re not- I think this is something all of us have been guilty of doing before. I have been with Paramore right from the start, and I like seeing their music change and evolve.
