Hello March, Goodbye February!
As we wave goodbye to all the joys of February (pancake day) for another year and pray that the weather gets just that little bit better, I’m back with all the music I’ve been overplaying this month. Just as expected there’s a mix of all sorts from soundtrack, pop, indie, 80s etc.
So without further ado, here are my top 20 songs that I’ve listened to in February:
- Telepathy – Christina Aguilera, Nile Rodgers (The Get Down Soundtrack)
Christina Aguilera has been one of my favourite singers for years now and I can recognise her voice ANYWHERE. So when I was watching The Get Down on Netflix, (which is fantastic by the way I highly recommend) this song was featured in a scene and I became OBSESSED. It’s the perfect pop/disco mix and you can definitely hear Nile Rodgers influence on the track.
- A Change of Heart – The 1975
The 1975 are a band I’ve followed and enjoyed since their first album and A Change of Heart was always a song I skipped over on the ‘I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it’ album but for some reason I decided to watch the music video on Youtube and I’m so angry I’ve slept on this song for so long. The lyrics are so sad and I love all the little references to the songs off the first album. This is definitely The 1975 at their best.
- On the Loose – Niall Horan
Niall has massively impressed me ever since the band went on hiatus (they’re on a break ok!) and his album is great! My two friends and I are off to see him on the 16th March and On The Loose will 100% be the song I anticipate the most. It’s very laid-back Fleetwood Mac/The Eagles inspired and it works a treat with Niall’s approach to his solo sound.
- Want You Back – 5 Seconds of Summer
I’ve always been indecisive about 5SOS. When they first came on the scene I really enjoyed their sound and Try Hard was my bop for a good few months but by the time their second album came around I wasn’t as charmed. When I heard they were releasing new material I decided to give it a listen and I love it. They’ve gone for a more indie sound comparing to their pop punky style which they’re known for. I’m excited to hear more!
- Never Tear Us Apart – Bishop Briggs
I went to see the newest Fifty Shades film a few weeks ago and usually I’m a huge fan of the soundtrack but this time I was only drawn in by a handful of songs. This INXS cover is insanely dreamy! The vocalist has the perfect raspiness to add the right amount of sexiness to the track and it compliments the film excellently. Already a lover of the original, this cover does it justice.
