My Listening Ear – Week 4

Hey everyone, hope you are all well, what a week its been. Music has really been there for me a lot at the moment. Really like this weeks music choices and I hope you do too. I’m thinking from next week, I might add an additional part to this post, and include a song that’s likely been forgotten about, I can think of a few! I think that could be a lot of fun and I hope you think so too. Anyways not going to ramble on too much, here is this weeks music choices…
Jacob Lee – Secrets

I have seriously fallen in love with this guys music. I love the fact he’s not as well known, I could listen to his voice all day, its beautiful. His lyrics are so relatable and speak to my soul. He doesn’t sing about the same raunchy stuff that everyone else seems to always jump on. Also go check out his acoustic sessions as well, because its just so raw, I love it. It was hard making a decision which song of his to include on this blog, but this one is really nice, I felt myself getting lost in it, thinking about things. That is when you know a song is good though, when it doesn’t matter what is going on around you, your just completely in your world.

Big Black Delta – Huggin And Kissin

Ohhhh I really like this! Just whenever I hear it, I just find myself automatically dancing to it. This song brings a bit of darkness to the surface, it has such a good beat, I just can’t stop listening to it. The video to this is soooo cool as well! The animation is really good. Good luck getting it out of your head though when you’ve heard it!

Cloves – Don’t Forget About Me

Wow. What powerful lyrics. This song always gives me goose bumps when I hear it. I think its a genuine fear for a lot of us, being forgotten about. Whether it’s friendships or just going into a relationship, the thought of getting too attached to people, because down the line you could get forgotten about, is not a nice feeling. Yet we should just enjoy the moment, because chances are, that might not even happen. It’s going to stop us from building new relationships with people. I am guilty of doing this. Now I’ve gone into a massive deep thinking spiral haha.

Nerina Pallot – Love Will Tear Us Apart

This song is so old, and been covered so many times, but I love this version. The lyrics don’t really mean anything to me, as its about two people growing apart after being together for a long time, but I just really like. Love Nerina’s voice, and the intensity to it, it’s just a nice song. Well it is and it isn’t if you get me haha!

Kesha – Praying

I feel like this has been the song of my whole week. As a lot of you will know, I posted the most honest post to date on Saturday. It actually dug up a lot for me, and I didn’t realise how much it still affects me. I hope people understand why I am the way I am now. I feel like damaged goods. However there is a breakthrough for me, people keep telling me how strong I am, and I think I’m slowly starting to believe it. The lyrics unfortunately I can painfully relate too, especially the ones I’m going to leave below.

Well, you almost had me fooled
Told me that I was nothing without you
Oh, but after everything you’ve done
I can thank you for how strong I have become

‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”

The Chainsmokers – Paris (Subsurface Remix)

Finally I’m posting something more upbeat haha. So this is something a lot of people don’t know about me, and that is I really like trap music. This is one of my favourites, it’s not massively heavy, but it has a good beat and is very chilled. It never seems to fail lifting my mood up. It’s a good road trip song actually, makes me want to randomly drive and see where I end up. I so need to do this one day. I really like the lyrics to this too, and I’m yet to hear a bad song by The Chainsmokers.

Tom Odell – Another Love

Not going to lie I’m not a fan of much of his songs, but I do really like this one. Again, I think this could be part of the soundtrack to my life, I feel like I could make an album for each year haha, which has actually given me an idea, for future posts. I think its clear what this song is about, but to me it’s about a person who gets burned in a relationship, then finds it hard to love in the present one, no matter how much they want too. It’s a really beautiful song.

Hope you enjoy this weeks music choices!
