Stranger Things

I’ve been a Stranger Things fan since the first time I saw the trailer. Naturally, I started watching the series on Netflix the day it came out last summer and was instantly hooked. It’s hands down one of the most exciting, original shows I’ve ever seen. And if you haven’t already seen it, you should probably get on that.

I adore the obvious integration of classic 80’s movies such as The Goonies and ET, as well as the entire cast, in particular David Harbour as Sheriff Hopper and Millie Bobby Brown’s spectacular portrayal of Eleven. The otherworldly music, like the instrumental “Kids,” absolutely sealed the deal for me. Composed by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein, this song is basically the theme played throughout various scenes in which the talented kid actors get their well deserved screen time.

Phillipa Soo “Helpless” (From HAMILTON)

Another favorite of mine from the Hamilton soundtrack. Soo sings with full conviction and emotion. The same kind that I have when I sing along to the song in my car.

Jonathan Groff “You’ll Be Back” (from HAMILTON)

This song makes me happy in a way that I can’t put into words. And just picturing Jonathan Groff in an oversized crown (as King George) brings an ear-to-ear smile to my face. Even if it’s not exactly the nicest song lyrically it’s just so upbeat and fun.

That said, I have not yet seen this musical live however after watching the AMAZING Tony Awards hosted by the brilliant James Corden last night, I skimmed through the soundtrack and …holy expletives! The music is incredible. I’ve already been a fan of Jonathan Groff’s from his Glee days so yea I’m hooked. That voice!

Justin Timberlake “Can’t Stop the Feeling”

Right now, I adore this song. I want to play it ridiculously loud and dance like I’ve never danced before. And not give a shit who’s watching me… But it’s a JT song which means they will probably overplay it on the radio.

X Ambassadors “Unsteady” (Erich Lee Gravity Remix)

As if I didn’t already love this song without the remix, but violins in the background? That’s my weakness. This is stunning.

Ellie Goulding “Love Me Like You Do”

Having never read Fifty Shades, I can’t say I’m overly excited about the upcoming film (although I do like both main actors from their previous work I’ve seen). On a musical note, however, I am super interested in the film’s soundtrack, which is sounding sweeeeet so far.

“Love Me Like You Do” is another gorgeous pop anthem from Ms. Goulding.

Nico & Vinz “Find A Way” f/ Emmanuel Jal

Dear Radio Stations,

PLEASE don’t overplay this song like you have “Am I Wrong”.

Yours truly,

Ashley

Ellie Goulding “Beating Heart”

A hot one from the Divergent soundtrack. 

I’m kind of obsessed with the Frozen soundtrack.

Just sayin.
