My favorite thing to do all week is seach for new music. So, my second New Music Mondays post makes me so happy. Music helps me live my life a little bit happier. Even the saddest songs bring a little joy just by being beautiful. It's good to have a mix of music. That's why I'm always in search of some new songs to add to my playlist. Hopefully some new tunes will add a little fun to your life too. Here's to a happy, healthy & fun week ahead!

The Chainsmokers are the folks who brought us the iconic But First, Lemme Take a Selfie song, but their music is more than gimmicks. I also loved their song, "Kanye" and was excited to see they came out with this new one. Their beats are fun and creative. It's a little different than what's out there in EDM right now. They also tend to use people I've never heard of on their tracks. This introduces me to some new voices and I really appreciate that, as I'm sure the lesser known artists appreciate the publicity.

I always have one weekly guilty pleasure and Nick Jonas is locking up the vote this week. I want to hate it, but I can't. It's just too good. You've gained a fan JoBro. Seriously though, I am happy he has made the transition from child star to serious artist, and that he is actually making music I like. Plus, he's easy on the eyes.

There is the most epic saxophone solos in this song! It's pretty much the only reason I love it so much. I had Tep No on the first installment of New Music Mondays too. Maybe she's here to stay? We'll find out next week :)

Imagine Dragons is such a good band. True rockers, that make great music, and I have a huge respect for that. This is my favorite song that I've listened to off of their new album. It's definitely making excited to hear more and pay more attention to this album that I haven't heard much buzz about. Maybe I'm living under a rock and it's blowing up everywhere, but I am just happy I found it.

I love a good sexual R&B song every once a while. I don't know if it's technically R&B because it really picks up once you get into it, but either way it's a good song. He just wanna get you out them clothes... Ohohohohoh... So good!

I am pretty obsessed with this song right now. I have added it to my running playlist and it always motivates me when it comes on. The name of the song is completely irrelevant to what it's about, and I really love when musicians do that. For example, "All Signs Lead to Lauderdale" is an epic A Day to Remember song. All bands should do this once, just for fun. I also went searching for the video to be able to add the YouTube link and realized that Lolawolf is Zoe Kravitz's band! And I love her! Anyone who watches the vlog knows how much I love the movie Divergent and I think it's so cool that Zoe co-starred there, but is also still following in her father, Lenny's, footsteps and building a music career too. Great song, can't wait to hear more.

Pretty much any time Drake, Nicki and Wayne get together I love it. There's just something so good about dirty sexual innuendos, inside jokes and talking about booties. It's fun. I know it's not the music my mom wants to listen to, but I have a Thug Life tattoo so it's definitely up my alley.

I love the bass beat for this song. It's like circular sounding, if that makes sense? It's ok if it doesn't. It reminds of waves on the beach a little bit. It's soothing and fun at the same time.

I am also an admitted fan of songs that sound like they could be from the Lion King. This is another one to add to the list (Other examples include: "Some Nights" by Fun. and "On Top of the World" by Imagine Dragons). It's just so motivating listening to a group of people sing in a foreign language followed by an epic synth solo. I am such a nerd for these songs!

Drake is my favorite. I was really eh about him until he was on SNL last season and was so hilarious. I had always liked his music, but now I am a true fan who just wants to see him succeed. "Energy" reminds me a lot of "0-100". I think he's sticking with a formula that works and I can appreciate that. Killin' it. 


DropThatKitty

In this week's category of Songs So Ridiculous You Have to Hear It to Believe It, "Drop That Kitty" takes the top spot. This song is so ridiculous, but it makes me laugh. I have a really hard time taking Charli XCX seriously, and this doesn't make me think she's gaining any moral credit, but gosh, is it fun to dance to. 


So that's my rundown of this weeks favorites. Do you like any of them? Do you hate them? Let me know on twitter: @lindseybell. And what do you think of my new website? 

Much Love, Lindsey
