i do music things with my butterfly wings

Fifth Harmony “Don’t Say You Love Me”

I wish I had something more sophisticated to say other than THIS SONG IS AMAZEBALLS but I don’t and it is.

Simon and Garfunkel “Blues Run the Game”

Dude. These two. Happy Throwback Thursday.

Marlene “Miss You A Little”

Another fabulous pop song from Sweden, aka the land where fabulous pop songs are made. In droves.

Samm Henshaw “Only Wanna Be With You (Acoustic)”

I’m honestly having a hard time putting into words how magically raw and precious this song is. Just press play.

Superfruit “Future Friends”

THIS SONG IS EVERYTHING!!!!

These two fabulous men, who happen to be two fifths of the AMAZING a capella hit quintet, Pentatonix, created a masterpiece with this song. How it’s not playing everywhere right now is beyond me but, then again, it’s probably a good thing this song isn’t on the radio. It’s just too damn fantastic.

Also, check out their entire album because it’s one hell of an ear fuck, and I mean that in the best way possible.

UPDATE: Just heard the Brian Roberts Jones Choir Remix of this son and HOLY EXPLETIVES. You will actually feel holier after listening to it, trust me.

 

Marc Cohn “Hold On For Me”

I just love this man’s music.

No Words

As a race, I think we’re failing ourselves and the future. This planet, this place that we call home, is so precious and we’re just making everything harder for ourselves as a whole. We humans overthink everything, fight about everything, and make a big deal out of everything. At the end of the day, none of us have forever, so why can’t we all just be kind and learn to live with one another in peace now? I know it’s wishful thinking but we’re all thinking it… or at least many of us are.

Anyways, when it gets too noisy and busy out in the world I like to listen to music that puts me in a more relaxed and calm state of mind. Instrumental music, in particular for me, creates that sense of zen. Songs don’t need words to tell a story, after all.

Here’s a┬álist of some of my favorite instrumental pieces:

Maroon 5 “What Lovers Do” f/ SZA

Best Maroon 5 song in YEARS.

 

Astrid S

One of the best, new pop artists I’ve heard in light years – hands down! I haven’t heard a song of hers I didn’t like yet. That’s impressive in today’s age of (mostly) crappy pop music. So, yay Astrid S!

I also highly recommend listening to her single:
