Every once in a while a random, let’s-talk-abut-music post crops up around here. Today is one of those days. I’m not sure how many new songs I’ve discovered, loved and couldn’t live without since last time we talked music, but I thought perhaps there were enough to make a reasonably decent blog post. Traditionally, I tend to like the popular, “it” songs of the moment, which to some, isn’t good music. Nothing wrong with that either. That being said, another reason I love watching Dancing with the Stars is discovering new music and I discovered at least one new favorite this season. Otherwise, I’ll admit a lot of the stuff on my iPod is on repeat and has been for a while. What can I say, when I like a song, I really like a song. Let’s take a like at some of those songs. But, with that said, hence, the reason for this “What I’m Listening To Edition One” publication!
What I’m Listening To Edition OneWhat's Playing on my iPod 2015 Edition #FWarchives Click To Tweet
Luke Bryan, ‘Crash my Party’
Love it. That’s it.
Kelly Clarkson, ‘Dance with Me’ and ‘Good Goes the Bye’
These two songs on Kelly’s latest album are way fun and have a nice “vibe.” (Is that a legit term?)
Clean Bandit (featuring Jess Glynne), ‘Rather Be’
Discovered this one through Noah Gallaway and Sharna Burgess’ tango on DWTS. The opening alone is gorgeous.
Florida Georgia Line, ‘How We Roll’ and ‘Stay’
Pretty much anything I hear by this country duo I love. But these are my current two favorites.
Frozen Official Soundtrack, ‘Let it Go’
What can I say? I still love this movie, characters and this song. I actually like both the Demi Lovato version and the original sung by the talented Idina Menzel.
Into the Woods Official Soundtrack, ‘Agony’
This song is epic. There’s no “ands,” “ifs” or “buts.” Chris Pine rocks the vocals.
Nichole Nordeman, ‘The Unmaking’
It’s been a long time since Nichole released a new song. Growing up, I was pretty obsessed with her music. It was fun to hear she’s back with some new tunes. Have you heard her latest?
Paramore featuring Joy Williams, ‘Hate to See Your Heart Break’
Randomly discovered this one while putting this post together and… I really like it.
Taylor Swift, ‘Blank Space’; ‘Clean’; ‘Wildest Dreams’ and ‘Wonderland’
(Apologies in advance.) Nope, I’m still not done loving Taylor’s latest album. I can admit it, I’m still fond of (mostly) the entire album and am busily repeating the songs.
Joy Williams, ‘Until the Levee’
…and finally, I just heard this song last night. I’m curious for your thoughts. Joy is one-half of the now disbanded duo, Civil Wars. But before that she was in that Grammy-winning duo, she was a Christian solo artist whose music I also loved as teen. I confess, I sometimes miss her “happy” sound in comparison to her darker undertones now. What do you think of her new sound?
What’s currently on your favorites music playlist? I’d love to hear. Happy Friday, readers. Thank you – as always – for supporting this space!
