My Listening Ear- Week 3


There’s lots of sadness in the world right now, and I did debate whether to post this week or give it a break, but I know for some people my blog is an escape, and that means so much, so I will continue to post for you, but that doesn’t mean I’m not thinking of what is going on in the world right now.

I can’t believe we are on week 3 already?! Where has that time gone? The more I think about it the more I realise how much music means to me. I feel like rather than explain how I’m feeling, I could just give someone a song and its lyrics instead. Can I just say a massive thank you as well. I didn’t think this new addition to my blog, would be as much of a success as what it has, so a big thank you for that. As always I’d love to hear any recommendations you have, you can comment or go to the contact section, where you can also find my email!

King 810 – Bad Man

So this was introduced to me at the weekend I think, it was very nearly my new favourite song but I found a better song. I just love it. I literally have no words apart from that. It’s just one of those songs you do a little happy dance too when you hear it, because you know its so good! I like the balance of each other’s voices. I learn the song in like 2 days haha. I need to stop playing it though, as I don’t want to overplay it, to the point it loses value.

Matt Woods – In The Dark

I totally forgot about this! Was so glad to refind (that’s not a word but I just made it one) it again. This probably sounds really sad, but it’s just one of those songs I could listen to in the dark. The lyrics are perfect, like they just speak to me. A song I could probably listen too for hours and it still wouldn’t loose how special it is. ( I haven’t by the way, but probably could haha) It’s also really different to a lot of stuff out there right now, it’s a golden oldie, but still fresh, if that makes sense?

Jacob Lee – Demons

So I said above that I have a new favourite song and this is it! It pretty much sums up the last 7 years of my life. I’m going to pull up some lyrics to help you understand a bit about what I’m talking about.

I thought my demons were almost defeated
But you took their side and you pulled them to freedom
They know my secrets and won’t let me go

I have had some not so nice experiences in life and it took me a lot to then move on from that, work on myself and try and gain part of the old Amy back. Eventually I was getting somewhere. I then met someone, and it took me a lot to open up to that person, tell them what I had gone through and I built up that trust with them that I could tell them this. Then imagine that person taking that, and then deciding they want to repeat it, but taking it to a much worse level. Everything plus that, dug back up again, and now I’m dealing with the consequences in my head and heart.

Chet Faker – Talk Is Cheap

This is so catchy and chilled. I really like his voice too. I think this is another very relatable song. I think this is a lot about miscommunication. On one hand someone being really defensive about everything and then the other person being completely the other way. Also how things get said by the more chilled out person, gets interpreted into something that is completely different to the way it is meant. Maybe as well, feeling like everything getting said is an attack on them. On the other hand I like the line “talk is cheap” because it can be, especially when your in a place where you feel comfortable like your home, and when that happens, you can feel like you can say anything without thinking twice about it.

Fleurie – BreatheĀ 

I feel like this is definitely another song that would be added to the soundtrack of my life. I love the tone of her voice and how eerie and delicate the sound is too. Now that I’m actually thinking about it, I know a few places in my life where I can insert this in.

Lord Huron – The Night We MetĀ 

Taken from one of the best series ever, 13 Reasons Why, which is such a meaningful and touching series for me, this is a song that runs throughout. It’s a song that always makes me stop and think, and gives me goosebumps, and maybe makes me a little emotional haha. Trust me I don’t why I’ve become an emotional person because I never use to be but never mind. Honestly this song is hauntingly beautiful. For me I feel like its about looking back at a relationship, could be friends, family, romantically, and anyways it starting of bad, but also ending so poorly. Probably one of the most painful experiences humans can go through.

GUNSHIP – Dark All Day

Last but no means least… This either makes me want to dance, or go on a night time adventure somewhere with it blasting out. The music video is pretty cool to this as well, you’ll either life it or hate it, I guess. I am also getting Back To The Future vibes from this as well. I really liked them films. It’s been stuck in my head the last few days, and I can’t seem to get it out and thought it was a good song to finish on.

So I’ve just proof read this and realised all the titles are either to do with darkness, or something sad. I honestly do listen to some happier music but I wouldn’t be being real with you, if I posted that now, as it’s not what I’m listening too at the moment haha.

Hope you enjoy this weeks picks!
