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 list 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:

 

Bastille “Basket Case” (Green Day Cover)

Good to hear new music from the boys of Bastille, even if it isn’t an original. Fantastic cover.

Lecrae f/ Tori Kelly “I’ll Find You”

Tori Kelly turns every song into gold.

DNCE “Truthfully”

Ugh these words are so sad and relevant it’s sickening. Catchy song though.

Childish Gambino “Redbone”

The baby making song of 2017 right here.

 

Pink “What About Us”

Yup. We need this song right now. (But even if we didn’t it’s still one of Pink’s best songs in a while.)
