My Listening Ear – Week 8


Good morning everyone! This post is a couple of days late, I’m really sorry about that, I’ve had one of the most busiest weeks ever, and so hence why I’ve not posted this when I should have done. I’ve also struggled with a lot of self doubt this week, and a bit of that was around blogging too. I don’t know if people are still enjoying these music posts or not. Anyways this weeks music choices have all got a really chilled vibe to them, but all very different in their own ways. They are all very good for just putting in your earphones and zoning out. When I think about what music means to me, I think of it as the backdrop of my life. It helps me feel my way through my emotions, whether that’s feeling sad, and just taking some time out, or really happy to the point I’m dancing in my kitchen. Music means so much to me, and plays a bit part of my life, and I imagine that’s the same for a lot of other people.

Like I have said in the past, my music taste is quite different, I don’t pay attention to the charts or the radio. That being said, maybe you will have heard a few of these but I love the idea of someone discovering a new song from these posts that they really enjoy. ┬áJust a quick reminder, if you wanted to give anything a listen, just click on the song title, and it will take you to where you can listen to it.

Lauv ft. Julia Michaels – There’s No Way

I absolutely love this, the words are beautiful and tell a lovely story. If your going to sing about love, then this is the way to do it, as its so raw and honest, none of the corny stuff that is around a lot nowadays. Its the perfect “I love you, but we can’t be together” song, which is so sad, but I think quite a few of us can relate to that, and that’s why we enjoy music like this. There is definitely a thing such as right person, wrong time, and I’ve actually had it where on my part, I have felt like its the wrong time, but you have to do what is best for you, and this is getting too deep so I’m gonna leave it there haha, but it has a good tempo and it’s sad but without the backing track being sad, if that makes sense.

8 Letters – Why Don’t We

Arghhh I instantly fell in love with this song when I first heard it! It’s so good, I think what gets my attention to songs is more the words and the artist’s voice, than the actual backing music. This guy has it all and it’s so catchy, I’m going to try and not overplay it though, because I can do that sometimes, especially when it comes to dancing, you kind of don’t have a choice which can be annoying.

Camila Cabello – In the Dark

This came on my iPod when I put it on shuffle, and I totally forgot what a good song it is, in fact I love all her songs from that album, but I think this is the most underrated song from it. It has like a chilling vibe to it, and is also a really good one to dance too from experience.

Zara Larsson – Ruin My Life

Another oldish song. I remember when this first came out, it annoyed me, because I couldn’t work out why she was saying she wants someone to ruin her life, because from my opinion, I definitely don’t want anyone to ruin my life, like you can stay way away from me, I do not want that energy near me haha. However I can’t help but really like it, and I still don’t get why she is saying what she is saying, maybe I’m misinterpreting (that is a hard word to spell, not even spell checker knew what I was on about) wrong, but I don’t care, because I’ve finally decided that I really like it, no matter how much I try not too.

Bebe Rexha – I’m A Mess

I love how quirky Bebe is. For starters the video is soooo good, the choreography is visually amazing, I love it. I just don’t get why this song didn’t get that much attention, because it’s my favourite of hers. Go check it out, I don’t need to say anymore.

Ashe – Moral of the Story

Just wow. We definitely all have our own different stories to tell when we listen to this song and it’s lyrics, whether its heartbreak, abuse etc. The lyrics make so much sense to me, and are all very true. It’s about loving someone when you don’t actually really know them, and that’s why I want to take my time getting into something again. I feel like its so easy to get caught up in the moment, and allow your head to take over, and the feelings at the time, to get carried away with you, why do we actually rush things? I don’t think we help ourselves sometimes, and we are all guilty of doing it.

Dean Lewis – Waves (Acoustic)

This is my song of the week. I love music like this, it’s definitely so me. I don’t know why, but do you ever just find a song and it hits you like out of nowhere, and makes you feel so emotional? This did that to me. I have no idea why I have become so emotional at the moment, but apparently you do get more emotional as you get older. Dean’s voice is incredible as well, which just makes it even better. I wish there was more music out there like this, its just so much more heartfelt. This feels so much more than just a song. This may sound silly, but I feel like there are songs that make you feel more connected to life, and this is one of them.
