HAPPY MONDAY! Although Monday has never been my favorite day of the week, I do always look forward to having a New Music Monday blog post and this week is a doozy. After a couple of weeks of feeling like I was striking out in new music completely, I have come across playlist gold. Here's a few of my favorites.
"Special Affair" - The Internet
Category: Best Baseline
This is one of those songs that has grown on me. It's kind of naughty and catchy. I love a good R&B song from time to time and this one definitely fits that description.
"Rush (feat. Molly) [Sam Feldt Remix]" - Zwette
Category: Saxophone Solo of the Week
This is just one of those dance songs that is going to take off. It's super positive sounding, has a saxophone solo and makes you want to dance. There's not much more you can ask for in life.
"Coming Over (filous Remix" - James Hersey
Category: Best Deep House of the Week
Someone tried to explain to me what "Deep House" is recently and I still don't know if I get it, but I like it. Also, Gabi, my friend from Shore and pretty well-known from the vlogs, showed me this song so it's pretty near and dear to my heart. She has great taste in music.
"R.I.C.O. (feat. Drake)" - Meek Mill
Category: Aren't These Two Feuding?
One word: Drake. I feel like that's all I need sometimes.
"Rise Up" - Andra Day
Category: Inspiration Anthem
This girl can sing. She has an absolutely insane voice and this song really brings out the feels. Love it.
" My Love (feat. Drake)" - Majid Jordan
Category: Question of the Week
Favorite line: "You got your trophies. I know how you like to show 'em off, and shine 'em up and line 'em up. I'm not your trophy, baby. I won't let you show me off, or line me up, or shine me up. No." I think it's a way no one wants to feel in a relationship, like the only reason someone is with you is because of what you do. No one wants to not be loved unconditionally and for the wrong reasons.
"I Was Made For Loving You (feat. Ed Sheeran)" - Tori Kelly
Category: What Love Sounds Like
I feel like this is what love should feel like, ya know? Plus, Ed Sheeran can pretty much do no wrong in my book.
"Weight in Gold" - Gallant
Category: Most Soul
The second verse where he hits THAT note and I lose it. Uh, so good.
"The Party (This Is How We Do It)" - Joe Stone, Montell Jordan
Category: Cover of the Week
I loved the original version of this song. It came out when I was like 2, but still was so big I had heard it and liked it. Pretty cool to hear it resurrected and know every word.
"Ghost Town" - Adam Lambert
Category: Best Remix of the Western Gun Song Ever
The whistle in the chorus is pretty recognizable from The Good The Bad and The Ugly. I think it's really fun that they used it with a house beat.
"Girl Crush" - Little Big Town
Category: Most Therapeutic
There's just some songs that come into your life at the right time and really resonate with what's going on. Art imitates life I guess.
With that I am heading to bed! Hope you all have an amazing week! Send me your song ideas!!!!
Much love, Lindsey
