Isn't it weird that I hate the original song, but I'm in love with this one? And isn't it crazy how much you can do with music? This version of Sign of the times sounds completely different to the original which I find really fascinating. You can barely recognize the song as the original by Harry Styles cause it's so different. I feel like this is a good lesson on music that shows how different musicians can perform the same song but make it totally different. It doesn't get much clearer than this right? Give it a listen and choose for yourself, but these two are definitely not similar.

I haven't really thought about this before but I'm starting to realise more and more how Blue Neighbourhood by Troye Sivan has become a real favourite of mine. I find myself coming back to it every now and then when I just want to feel good and calm down a bit. The songs aren't really ballads or calming, I think it's just the memories and the familiar sound that always seems to calm me down. It's almost two years since it was released and I remember exactly where I was when I dropped. And my reaction was to say the least loud and very..... teenage-girl-ish. Do you get what I'm saying? Like basically screaming, jumping and happiness.

You might think my reaction is a bit over the top BUT it matter a lot to me then and it clearly put a mark on me. I still love every track and I still find new bits in them I love a little more. It's an album that means a lot to me and that kind of grows with me. As I'm getting older the lyrics are changing meaning to me. Some get darker, some get lighter and that's what I really like about the album. It's kind of timeless for me. Is it normal to feel this emotionally attached to an album. I'm sure someone out there will understand.....

Before you start judging, hear me out. Yes, this might seem cliché or whatever but I have my reasons for this. As the title tells, this songs about, you guessed it, boys. Or more specifically a girl who's got quite an obsession with them. The singer Charli XCX is someone you're probably familiar with. I bet you herd her megahit 'Boom clap' back in 2014 when she topped the charts with this single. On Spotify the song has over 190 (!) million streams. Like, what da hell? What more do I need to say? This girl frickin amazing! And I know, streams aren't everything but like, how can you just ignore that?!! She's good and if I haven't gotten that though yet then like, open your eyes for gods sake and listen to me!!

Anyway, let's get back to the song we're actually talking about. Boys. Haha, see what did there? ;).
But yes, where were I? Oh yeah, i was trying to save myself and this post. If you've watched interviews with Charli you know the music video to the song is all about empowerment (I guess). If you don't feel like watching it she basically took a shit ton of hot guys in Hollywood (including my favee Connor Franta) and made them do stereotypical "girl things". So like, having them do cutesie foam fights, throw cakes at each other and laugh cute and be shirtless. She's basically playing with the image of women in music and specifically in music videos. And I really like that and that my point I guess. It's a really fun song that plays on teenage boy-craze feels with a bit of a message in it. Sounds good to me.

I. AM. DYING!!!!

If you haven't been living under a rock for the last week or so have you probably heard the (fantastic) news about Sam Smith. He released a new single! And as you've probably figure I'm obsessed with it. I hope you've heard this masterpiece and if you haven't I'm so sorry for you.

I feel like this song is something many can enjoy. I made all of my friends list to it and most of them liked it, even though we all like different genres. So I guess it's a very versatile song that anyone could enjoy. Also, if your one of those people who basically only listen to music from the charts, it's currently charted third in the world on Spotify (as I'm writing this).

I just realised some might not remember who Sam is. He's he singer of Stay with me and I'm not the only one which both were popular back in 2014. I guess you could call Stay with me his breakout single with over 600 MILLION streams on Spotify. And if you're a movie fan chances are you've also heard his song Writings on the wall which was written for the most recent Bond-movie "Spectre". WOTW was his last single before he took a year of and didn't release any music. He did release a new version of his debut album In the lonely hour which featured a few new songs plus acoustic versions of some songs and duets.

Sam is simply one of the greatest singers of our time (I have no proof but my opinion). His music is great and his lyrics are just the best. He's so frickin talented and if you don't check him out you're really missing out on something.

No, this is not an old post I swear. I wrote about the original of this one very recently, but then I heard this and DAMN. I'm in love with this live-ish version that Lauv recorded with Spotify.

Now, if you're a frequent user of Spotify you've probably seen many artists come out with "Spotify singles" which are live recorded versions of one or two of their songs. Those are usually some of my favorites because you can really hear the "whole" song with all the instruments. And for someone like me who (usually) prefers simpler songs with clearer instruments are these a real treat. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the original of this but there's something about this version that just got me hooked and I can tell you that you need to listen to this at least once. I hope you'll love it as much as I do because if there's anything I like doing, it is getting people hooked on my faves...

I hope I've mentioned Dua Lipa on here before cause if I haven't I'm really disappointed with myself. Let me tell ya, this girl's got talent. I've been listening to her new(ish) album recently and you could say I'm kinda obsessed. Like, I'm in love with her voice. If you listen to the linked song or any other by her, you know her voice is different and quite powerful. And I guess I should've written about one of her more tempo songs, as I feel like this is her only slow song. Weird choice i made isn't it? But I really like this song so I'll stick with it, and I guess you'll have to check out her other music. Too bad...

(not really)


I also recommend her song "New Rules" if you want to listen to one of her more tempo songs. It's definitely a hit in my opinion and the music video is just.... amazing. It's a real treat to be honest so go and watch that as well if you're feeling like getting and new fave.

Have you ever heard of Wrabel? If you haven't I am so sorry for what your been missing out on. I first found out about him when he worked with my fave Alex Hope on one of his songs, 11 Blocks. I by the way recommend you listen to it cause it's a real bop...

Anywho, I'm here to talk about one of his new songs, We could be beautiful. First of all, I LOVE the name. I think it's kinda why I love it so much. But the songs really good too. I'm not sure if I like this or ritual more. They're both great, but this one has a better name sooooo.... Yeah. Listen to them, they're great. That's all I've got to say... Are you noticing how bad I am at selling y'all songs?

Okay, I might say that like, all the time. But this I'll like actually be back on track. But let's not focus on that and make me feel guilty now, you're here for the music aren't ya?

I've missed posting about a lot of new music that've come out these last months when it's actually been released. So I'm a little late with this one, but you need to listen to this.

I'm a huge fan of Lauv (aka Ari Leff) for quite a long time now and I'm pretty sure I've posted about him before. And if you didn't check him out then please do it now cause you're really missing out!! This song is like, magical? I've been loving it since it came out and I'm honestly surprised that I'm still not tired of it. Usually you get tired of a song after listening to it so many times, but I'm still in love with this after two months. So with other words, it's great and you should listen to it.

Guess who's back! It's me, not big of a surprise I guess. I mean, you're on my blog, so who else would it be? Anywho I'm back and better than ever (I hope). This is my so called comeback and I just have to, this song is way too good not to love.

If you're a fan of pop music I'm sure you've already heard of Khalid as he's been pretty much all the crazy for the last weeks. And it's not for nothing. He recently released his debut album American teen and people, especially on the internet, went crazy. He kinda reminds me of Frank Ocean, which I think says it all. Khalid is becoming a real favourite of mine and I absolutely in love with his album. Weird thing tho, I'm not a fan of Location which is the song he first became known for and that most people like. It's was his first single so I guess I can see why people stick with it, but there's so many other songs by him that are way better! But as I always say, that just my opinion.

Okay, so if you've been here for some time you're probably familiar with my obsession with good lyrics. I talk about it all the time and even tho I don't mind if a song has crazy and unrelated lyrics (as long as it's not like offensive and stuff) but I really appreciate good lyrics. And this song got some great lyrics! I especially love the lyrics "They'd think we're perfect if they'd ever seen us". I feel like he's talking about him and the person holding up an image. They don't people to know they're not perfect, so they make up an illusion of being perfectly fine. Kind of like what people tend to do with social media. Idk, there's just something about that lyrics that I really like.

I know I've been rambling a lot, but before I end this I can't help but talk about the amazing vocals! Not that they're complicated or unique, they're just great. Throughout pretty much the whole song they have two parts, one that sings higher and one that sings lower. You can hear the difference of them really good in the chorus. I love when the higher part goes up in the ends of every sentence in the chorus, making it sounds pretty awesome.

That pretty much it folks. I hope this won't be too much to read, but I guess you're probably interested if you're here so you're welcome! Anywho, if you've heard any good new music you'd want to share, the comment section is where you should go. Let's help each other out a bit and share some new music!

Okay guys, I know I'm kinda in love with James so here's another one of his songs. This one's a quite simple one vocal wise. It begins with him singing "soft" and then builds up which I really like. Especially when he puts in some longer tones as well. I think the vocals are what really gets to me the most, but I must say the lyrics match up with the rest of the song. Let's just call it an even song.

I'm kind of amazed by how he can literally go from high, loud tones to dark, softer tones in like a micro second. I guess most singers try to do that and most succeed but there's something with his technique I guess that makes it sound so much better to me. And the fact that he also create lyrics that match with the songs sounds makes me so weirdly satisfied. I mean I love when songs sound really happy and have a really deep lyrics, kind of like a secret message. But when I hear song that have lyrics, vocals and instruments that match so well I always feel so satisfied for some reason. Haha!

So this song really gets to me and I think it might become a new favourite of mine.... But honestly I'll probably listen to it way too many times in like two days and then hate it. Does that ever happen to you weep here you hear a song and you listen to it on repeat for like a day and then you never wanna hear it again? Happens to me all the sprite, sadly. But hey, at least I enjoy the song to the most!
