Song Of The Month – October 2018 – The Way I Am By Eminem

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQvteoFiMlg[/youtube] Do you remember that time when Eminem was literally the most important person in whole entire world of music? I even bought Angry Blonde which was a book about his songs, the lyrics, the inspirations. I loved him but I had friends that were obsessed with him. The way these young whipper snappers are obsessed with One Direction, Fifth…

Song Of The Month – September 2018 – Crawling By Linkin Park

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd9OhYroLN0[/youtube] Last year, the lead singer of Linkin Park died and I had an immense feeling of grief, especially for his children, I realised that I hadn’t listened to one of my all time favourite albums, Hybrid Theory, for years. It got me through those awkward teenage years, gave me a feeling of belonging to something. The album will never…

Song Of The Month – August 2018 – I Write Sins Not Tragedies By Panic! At The Disco

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc6vs-l5dkc[/youtube] This a complete throwback of me from a different time. I remember I went through a phase of mild emo-ness. I loved it. I had a friend at school that used to write song lyrics down on paper and pass them to me in class. For ages, I thought she was some sort of philosophical poetical marvel! Turns out…

Song Of The Month – July 2018 – Ready For Love By India.Arie

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxkMlS2nuU8[/youtube] I think this is the 3rd time that India Arie has popped up in my Song of the Month playlist. What can I say but she’s amazing! Songs like this make me wish I never gave up the guitar but it hurt my fingers though! Anyway, this song gives me goosebumps, it’s so sincere and beautiful. If you’ve never…

Song Of The Month – June 2018 – Should’ve Been Us By Tori Kelly

  [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE2drlA8vf8[/youtube] With a voice like hers, I’m not sure why she isn’t bigger! But perhaps the market is too crowded or people just haven’t given her a chance but honestly, Tori Kelly is so amazing and that hair!! Had to mention the hair, of course! I love this song and did from the second I first heard it but…

Song Of The Month – April 2018 – 2U By David Guetta and Justin Bieber

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqcjBLMaWCg[/youtube] I am loathed to add Justin Bieber to my definitive list of songs I love because I am a grown ass woman but goddammit, he makes fairly good music (now) especially when he collabs with dance DJs. It’s just a winning formula for the guy, it was a toss up between this or “Where R U Now” with Skrillex…

Song Of The Month – March 2018 – Stay by Zedd & Alessia Cara

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h–P8HzYZ74[/youtube] I have to say there is something a little different about Zedd’s take on dance music. From collabs with Hayley Williams to Foxes, it’s clear that he focuses on the song and not just the beat. Which is why this collab works so well! I love Alessia Cara’s voice and I played a few of her songs to the…

Song Of The Month – February 2018 – Breathe Life By Jack Garratt

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqtvrsNLFMs[/youtube] I can’t even describe this sound. This is music like I’ve never heard. I have many a list of products to try, places to go and albums to buy (because some people haven’t yet come round to the idea of Spotify!) and this artist, Jack Garrett, is on the list of albums for sure. I will admit, if you…
