A while back I had a bit of a series that I ran on my blog, in which I’d post five songs I was listening to a lot for the past seven days and was rather creatively named Music Mondays.
Well, I’ve decided to bring back Music Mondays! Aren’t you all lucky?
I’m going to try to not make this week’s choices too bitter and cynical and twisted, but there is definitely one pick that has been resonating with me on a lyrical level and I have listened to almost non stop since the middle of last week. Let’s just get to it, shall we?
1. Fleetwood Mac- Go Your Own Way
I am on a right Fleetwood Mac kick right now. They’re just awesome; that folksy, rocky sound of theirs is brilliant. This song has been a favourite for weeks and I think it’s something to do with how it almost changes from major to minor when it goes from verse to chorus.
2. Watain- Outlaw
I’m almost certain that a) I have featured this before, and b) this probably isn’t most of my readers’ cup of tea. However, Watain are one of my favourite bands and this is a song that I find myself listening to often. It’s just the way the tempo changes and it has that raw, old-school black metal feel to it.
3. Paramore- Ain’t It Fun
So to go almost completely 180 from that last pick, here’s Paramore! Ha. I love Paramore right now. It’s a combination of Hayley Williams’ voice and their general songwriting style, I think. This song is amazing, I can’t help but sing along when I play it in my car. Almost jazzy and groovy and just ugh amazing.
4. Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea- Pretty Girls
To be fair, I’ve only been listening to this via YouTube but I am obsessed. Britney is a goddess, I have a guilty pleasure love of Iggy Azalea, and this is just perfection. Ahem.
5. AFI- I Hope You Suffer
I’m not going to say too much about this one. AFI have been my favourite band for about 13-14 years now. This song has been on almost constant repeat since Wednesday. End.
