Unlike Pluto f/ Mike Taylor “Everything Black”

Basically.

 

MO “When I Was Young”

Who doesn’t love a jam with a prevalent saxophone riff? No one.

Dua Lipa “IDGAF”

And…. this is how to slay with your words. Or an acronym. Either way, Dua Lipa is a lady dragon and this song is her FIRE.

Charli XCX f/ Carly Rae Jepsen “Backseat”

My 2 favorite pop artists join forces to sing about my life, basically. It’s one hell of a sad yet dope song.

The Greatest Showman

You know when you watch a movie and it kinda stays with you days after seeing it? I saw The Greatest Showman on New Years Day (2018) and I can’t stop thinking about how perfect it was. And ironically, one of the main themes running throughout the movie is learning to embrace your imperfections.

While the story is beautiful, timeless, and often breathtaking, what really got me (as it often does) is the music. I was blown away by how amazing the music was – Every. Single. Song. I was reading something about how even though the movie takes place in the 1800’s, the music was purposely meant to sound contemporary to showcase how ahead of his time P. T. Barnum was.

There really is no stand out to the soundtrack as it’s amazing from beginning to end, but the song that I’m partial to is “A Million Dreams.”

YES. YES. YES. YES. YES. YEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris Stapleton “Whiskey And You”

The quintessential end-of-the-year, sitting-at-home-on-a-snowy-winter-day, contemplating-life-kind-of-jam.
