RIP, Dolores. :´( ❤
Happy Friday! There are good and bad sides about me not paying much attention to the Western music scene when I was in my teens and early twenties, and I’ve never listened to the radio much. And I also didn’t have parents that would educate me about their favorite music (cos they kind listen to the same Chinese songs over and over again). So I have a very limited knowledge of music from the wild wild west. The negative thing is, there can be some song that everybody knows but I’ve never heard of it. But the positive thing is also that there are tons of songs that everybody knows but are completely new to me. It’s just like that with ‘Love My Way’ by ‘The Psychedelic Furs’. I’m still inside the ‘Call Me By My Name’ bubble and I absolutely love this song. Hope you enjoy it too. 🙂 Have a great Friday!
My favorite parts from the lyrics:
“Love my way, it’s a new road,
I follow where my mind goes
So swallow all your tears, my love
And put on your new face
You can never win or lose
If you don’t run the race”
Welcome to Jukebox Friday! This year has been pretty light on music as in I didn’t have that much time to actively discover new music. I only purchased two albums, Sam Smith’s ‘Thrill of it All’ and of course, the soundtrack of ‘Call Me By Your Name’. The rest of the music experience was based on Youtube. So I listed six songs that came out 2017 and they made my life more awesome. Here we go.
I kicked the year off with Lorde’s new powerful single, ‘Liability’. Although ‘Green Light’ might be the biggest hit of her new album, I love the simplicity of ‘Liability’, its meaningful, touching lyrics and the haunting melody. My favorite parts of the lyrics… well, actually, the whole song.
I know I know, quite a tone change. Well a girl gotta have something to dance to and my choice of the year is not the freakishly annoying Spanish song that had been playing non-stop on the radio, we don’t say the D-word here. Heh, JK. Despacito is okay, but I like a little more umph with my dancing music. What can I say, I love Nicki Minaj.
Then, to kick the summer heat up a notch, my girl Selena Gomez dropped a new single, and it’s so dreamy, she’s so pretty and this is just the perfect summer song. The tune is just so sexy. And I happen to be a big fan of Selena’s whispery voice, it’s like she’s tickling the inside of my ear.
Holy shit girl, where have you been? I’ve been obsessed with this for weeks after it came out, cos when I clicked on the newest Kesha music video after so many years, I did not expect this. It’s like I heard her voice the very first time, her real voice. And that high note? To die for. Who doesn’t love a great comeback, right? You go girl!
Then came the darkening autumn evenings and one of my absolute favorite voice in the world is back, Sam Smith with his new album. And I love watching him perform live, cos he is one of those rare artists that sound better when they sing live. His high notes are some of the best, and there is that one sweet spot where Sam’s voice sounds high but still crystal clear when it’s not quite falsetto yet, it sounds freaking amazing. And all that emotion that he injects into his performances is simply a joy to watch.
There are some of those moments when you forget how good of a singer Kelly Clarkson is. And then she would release a single like this that kindly reminds you by blowing your freaking mind. Holy shit this is good. And with that tune and those feelings, it’s good to begin a whole new year in music. 🙂 Happy Friday!
