MUSIC MONDAY: Never Forget You by Zara Larsson and MNEK

I’ve missed a couple of our Music Mondays and honestly, I missed it.  I’ve been quite preoccupied with family stuff, but I’m back now!

One of the things that I am starting to get used to here is the music.  If you haven’t noticed before, I’m more of an old soul.  Most of my music is centered on 80s rock ballads.  Hahahaha.  I honestly believe that Air Supply is a genius, and that a memorable ballad must be accompanied by fantastic drum exhibitions.

I’ve been hearing this song over and over, especially at Z100, Le Mari’s favorite radio station.  It has bugged me for so long.  Thanks to SoundHound, I was able to find out the title.

Dance music has really evolved since I first discovered it.  I’ve been constantly surprised how much I like them!  Hahahaha.  I think I’m slowly expanding my music selection.

Plus, the lyrics are amazing.

Feel free to sing/dance with me.

MUSIC MONDAY: Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch

I know this is coming in a little later than usual, but the inspiration didn’t kick in until Le Beau’s jiu jitsu class.

I haven’t heard this song in a while.  For a good moment back then, this song very much haunted me.  The desperation in Florence’s voice and the beat Calvin Harris laid out perfectly contradict each other.  It was just beautiful.

And have you listened to these lyrics?

This jiu jitsu place is giving me more than what I needed now.

Have a great evening, everyone.

MUSIC MONDAY: One Last Time by Ariana Grande

Okay, so this song has been stuck in my head all week.  And I mean all week.  It doesn’t help too that my niece Juliana (Philippine edition lol) can’t stop singing it too.  Hahaha.

So I decided to give in.  And just sing it out loud.  I mean, come on.  It’s a good song.

Are you ready to sing with me?  Don’t be ashamed.  I know you are.

 

The music, the lyrics

Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of party music.  For those who have come to know me pretty well, I’m not really a fan of club music.  But lately, the lyrics are becoming more meaningful and the beat, more relatable.

Or maybe they always have been, I just never paid attention.

Either way, the music has been giving me the necessary energy to push through midterms and final paper requirements.  It has been a pretty tough first quarter.  There are days when I regret going to school and working full-time at the same time, but then, there are days when I just need a little extra push.

And this is one of those days.

Did that just perk you up too?  What do you often listen to when you need that little extra push?
