Recently I have been branching outside of my usual musical corner. Not to say I am a hermit or snob when it comes to music, I’ve always had a wide range of musical taste, but as the years have gone on I started to notice I would listen to the same artist over and over. So to rectify that I put on YouTube, listened to a song I knew from every genre (I like), and let YouTube do it’s magic. And surprisingly, YouTube did a pretty good job at showing me some new artist and bands that I am really getting into. So here is a list of my new and improved November Playlist!
Before this month I didn’t really listen to Indie Rock, tending to prefer the fast pace of Pop Punk, but this song stuck a cord within. It’s really relaxing and makes you feel a calm love (how I would describe it at least), and the guitar solo towards the end is killer.
Fave Line: And I'll be there when all our dreams have gone // Holding on to home where we belong
Okay, anything by Glass Animal is fantastic okay (I may have binged listened to like three of their albums) but I really like this song because it speaks on how people perceive themselves. It’s a really upbeat song and the music video is really good as well.
Fave Line: Look like a bum sipping codeine Coca-Cola // Thought that I was northern Camden's own Flash Gordon
So technically I was already a fan of The Lumineers, BUT I wasn’t a fan until this past march….. Okay so I just wanna talk about The Lumineers again. Sleep On The Floor is so good though! I mean the entire album Cleopatra is a gem, but SOTF is the first song I heard by the band so it has a soft place in my heart. Not only does it connect a story with four other songs, but if you have any sense of wanderlust, this song will hit you like a truck.
Fave Line: Cause if we don't leave this town // We might never make it out
So very first glance I thought it was going to be a very Pop Punk vibe, but instead it very The 1975, which you may not know this but The 1975 is my ultimate road trip jam. Well along with the Wicked soundtrack and Kendrick Lamar. But that’s besides the point. So I can’t exactly describe the genre the band is, I mean I know it's under the “Rock” category, but it has a psychedelic feel.
Fave Line: Do you think that you can have me tonight? // I think my- Think my heart is alright
This song is honestly just a feel good song. I mean it’s about wanting someone you love back, so obviously it has some sadness in it, but with the upbeat vibes and empowering theme of the video and song, it just comes off as a feel good beat.
Fave Line: I'll take the fall and the fault in us // I'll give you all the love I never gave before I left you
Fave Line: I could be somewhere, chillin’ on a beach // I could be with someone, making me happy // But that would be too easy, love // And I don't want no easy love
This is 100% single women anthem. From start to end, making it the second just feel good bop. I guess I could call it the next single ladies song?? Except it’s basically what your friends tell you after you finally get rid of that one S.O (you know the one).
Fave Line: You coulda had a bad b-, non-committal // Help you with your career just a little
As someone who has gone through some tough times this song was relatable- on both sides of the song. I particularly like the song because of that, it shows the perspective of the suicidal person and the perspective of the brother who had to deal with the aftermath.
Fave Line: And where the f- is God? // Damn, maybe I ain't believing enough & You don't know how many times that I done prayed for you // I hope you hear me, godd*mn it
I actually never really looked into James Blunt outside of his radio hit. But I stumbled upon this song and I don’t know if they video aided in my liking this song (the video is really good, cause animation) but I just enjoyed this song. Like I never experienced what the song is talking about but the song just sounds nice.
Fave Line: And I didn't mean to stalk you // But I saw that guy you talked to
I haven’t seriously listened to Justin Bieber since my “Bieber Fever” of 2008, but I was watching a lyric prank video (they are funny, I don't care if they might be staged) and this song was mentioned so I looked into it. And wow, relatable and even if it’s not relatable the beat makes me think of summer nights. Like if I just listened to the instrumental I would conjure an image of those sparkle sticks on a july summer night.
Fave Line: Don’t really have one, because the entire song is one big relatable moment.
