I've had some recent music obsessions that makes me in the mood to share with you today! I know you all love it when I share music. (Ha, not.) But too bad, here goes!
So I've recently discovered (and I think I mentioned this awhile back) that I appear to be a fan of Fall Out Boy. I'm baffled, shocked and surprised by this! I mean, really? Fall Out Boy? But yeah. It started with that Centuries song which would get stuck in my head and I'd be all, WHO sings that song? I totally love it!
And then when I realized who it was, I was all like, what ELSE to they sing? Hmmm.. Spotify to the rescue.
Wait, they sing that Light 'em Up song? Seriously? I LOVE that song! (Yeah, I'm no I'm late to the party on this one, but better late than never, yes?)
Only it's really called My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark. Don't you love that title? What does that even mean? The lyrics are crazy but the song is so much fun. It's totally my go-to, rock-out, dance-around-the-house, cleaning-up, blast-with-the-windows-down, current song:
(Not a huge fan of this video though. I'd much rather see them pounding on the drums, not burning them up! Though I imagine most bands feel this way many times during their careers!)
Speaking of rock out songs, did you know Imagine Dragons has a new album out? Yeah, go listen to it on Spotify! And of course I zeroed in on the most crazy un-Imagine Dragons sounding song of the list to fall in love with. It's called Friction and it too is a song that needs to be blasted:
Shifting gears to mellow acoustic now. We saw the musical, Once, this past week. Lovely music in that show. Lovely. It made the song Falling Slowly famous. But I already loved that song. And now I love another song from that show. It's called, If You Want Me. It's what people would say is hauntingly beautiful. Have you heard it before?
Oh, and then there's Josh of course. He is in the midst of promoting and marketing up his new album which comes out in a few weeks. Sweet! And they've released a couple of songs as teasers. I love his version of Bring Him Home from Les Miserables. He nailed it!
Speaking of music, did you know Daphne from The Shadow Prince can hear people's emotions, like an aura only in musical notes? Isn't that awesome? (Yeah, how'd you like that segue?!)
Here's another teaser for that awesome book as promised:
So, did you listen to any of this music I shared? Did you like any of it? Will you play it on repeat a few times today? I hope so!
