The best part about this week? The new Major Lazer album finally came out and is amazing. Diplo killin' it as usual. I also fell more in love with Twenty One Pilots and apparently, really loved sad songs this week. Check them all out and let me know what you think (tweet me: @lindseybell)!
Be Together (feat. Wild Belle) - Major Lazer
Category: Most Likely to be My New Favorite Diplo Related Song
Everyone knows Diplo is my favorite, with last week's Major Lazer release, Peace is the Mission, I've found a new reason to listen. It's all pretty good, but this is my immediate favorite.
This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a Motherf****er - Maroon 5
Category: Guilty Pleasure
I am willing to believe there is no one more annoying on the planet than Adam Levine, however, I can't help but love this song... It's a problem.
The Hardest Part of Breaking Up (Is Getting Back Your Stuff) - 2gether
Category: Most Likely to Look Back Fondly on My Middle School Years
2gether was a fake boy band created by MTV for a faux reality show making fun of NSync and Backstreet Boys, etc. If you've never listened to their music I suggest you check it out. My other favorite song: "Say It, Don't Spray It".
Shaped Like a Gun - Tailor
Category: Most Likely to Make Me Cry
A girl danced to this for her tryout on the first episode of this season's So You Think You Can Dance. The song came out in 2012 so it's not exactly new, just new to me. Still beautiful though.
We Won't - Jaymes Young & Phoebe Ryan
Category: Breakout Breakup Song
A song literally breaking down their breakup. Very emotional, but also super catchy. It's like the movie The Break-Up with Jennifer Aniston where in the end your kind of pissed off that there's this whole movie and they don't end up together... Same thing in song form.
Chandelier - Twisted Measure
Category: Cover of the Week
Maybe it's because I'm so obsessed with the Pitch Perfect movies, or it's just because singing groups jamming acoustic is just beautiful... Either way this song is amazing.
Will I See You Again - Christian Lopez Band
Category: The Only Country Song I'll Ever Like
Is this even technically a country song? Either way it's a little more positivity to this playlist because besides Diplo, it's kind of been a downer hahaha :)
Between Me and You - Brandon Flowers
Category: Best Hypeman Back-up Vocals
You might be thinking to yourself, "Gosh, is Lindsey depressed?" And no I'm not! There's a really positive message in this song even though it kind of sounds depressing. Plus, the hypeman back-up vocals are amazing. Listen closely to the "hey", "come on child", and "ya got love". I wanna be a hypeman when I grow up.
Ride - Twenty One Pilots
Category: Best Psuedo Reggae Beat
Continuing my on-going love affair with Twenty One Pilots, I love this song.
