It's been a minute. I hate when I miss posting about my favorite songs of the week, but every time I miss a week, I end up with so much awesome music built up. Bring on the epic jams, y'all. My Spotify playlist is at the bottom of the post <3

"Adore" Jasmine Thompson

This song is so good, I swore it was a Tori Amos song from way back. I am all about a good piano ballad.

“Fool’s Gold” Aaron Carter
The original Biebs making a killer comeback. His best song since “I Want Candy”. In all seriousness, it’s really good. Glad you’re making an effort at what could be an awesome continued career judging by the sound of this song.
“Friends and Enemies” Biffy Clyro
Category: Frenemies Anthem
I’ve been a huge Biffy Clyro fan ever since I came across “Many of Horror” 6 or so years ago. I’m considering take another European trip just so I can see them live. Come to America!
“Fruit Punch” Kaiydo
“Got You On My Mind” NF
Category: The Darkest of Love Songs
Little Britt, Roman Atwood's girlfriend, introduced me to this song and I can't thank her enough. NF is coming to Florida in November and I will definitely be there.
“Hear You Say (feat. Olivia Reid)” Joyzu

“Take Me Down” The Pretty Reckless
Category: Cindy Lou-Who-iest
The Pretty Reckless is fronted by Taylor Momsen (formerly of Gossip Girl & The Grinch That Stole Christmas fame). Honestly, I never gave her much attention even though she was playing the same Warped Tour shows I was visiting religiously just a few years ago. But she has been redeemed in my eyes. I love this song. It has such a good 90’s rock feel to it. Rock on Tay Tay!
“Two Shots” Goody Grace
Category: Break Up/Make Up Song of the Wee
“Why Don’t You Listen” James Cherry
This guy only speaks the truth. Or at least for this song anyway. I can hear his aggravation in his voice. Why don’t you listen? I really would like to know.
