Hello friends! Today’s post is another Courtesy Of. I’ve been really trying to get as many people as I can included in these posts, because as much as I love rambling about my own musical tastes and interests of the month/week/day/minute, it’s always good to get a fresh perspective, and discover some new music myself.
So today’s Courtesy Of, is brought to you, courtesy of, Chloe Luna. Chloe is one of my most favourite people here on WordPress, and if you have yet to check out her blog, you’re missing out on some of the most beautiful, heartfelt, honest writing I’ve read in a long time. Definitely have a read.
get well soon – Ariana Grande: I have to admit. I didn’t listen to this song the most from the album, it was one of the songs I kinda skimmed over. But Goddamn do I regret that. I can’t believe I neglected this beautiful song. It’s such a cute song, and I am ever so grateful towards Chloe for including it on her list and putting me in check.
Fools – Madison Beer: I love me some Madison Beer. Love it. We’re huge Madison fans around here, and we can have a chat if you’d like to say anything negative towards her or her music. I’m always down. This song though. This song is one of her best in my opinion. In my opinion, the entire As She Pleases record is some of Madison’s best work.
134340 – BTS: Okay. This is where we divide slightly. I’ve never found myself on the K-Pop train. It’s difficult for me. But that said, I can totally understand why Chloe included this on her list. It’s a straight bop. Like everything I kinda look for in a song. Definitely check this song out.
Butterflies – Kacey Musgraves: Again, I feel like I should have listened to at least one Kasey Musgraves song, but alas, I’ve not, until I had a listen to this song. I totally understand the vibe though. I wouldn’t go out of my way to listen to her music, but I can’t deny it’s good. Female Hunter Hayes in my mind.
Same Ol’ Mistakes – Rihanna: Rihanna does no wrong for me, and this song is no different. This song is so fluorescent, I love the entire vibe of this song, and while it’s not my favourite from the album, it’s definitely up there.
My Love Is Like A Star – Demi Lovato: No-one, on this earth, can say that Demi Lovato can’t sing. Because the girl can sing. Chloe and I have somewhat bonded over our love and adoration for Demi, especially when we were younger in high school. This song is so emotional, and her voice shines it this one.
Strings – Shawn Mendes: Ah we love some Handwritten Shawn Mendes. I remember listening to this song on repeat when this album came out. I’d love to see current Shawn sing this song again, I reckon he’d do it so well now. Super grateful, huge thanks to Chloe for including this song because I’ve re-added it to so many playlists.
The Palisades – Childish Gambino (& Christian Rich): Another artist Chloe and I have loved together, bonded over, spoken at lengths about, is Childish Gambino, so I can’t say I didn’t expect this artist on her list. She definitely chose a good song too.
MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix) – BTS: Okay, holy shit this remix. Always a huge fan of Steve Aoki. Like I mentioned before, never listen to BTS, but I can totally see why this song is an absolute tune.
Monster Among Men – 5SOS: Okay, so the only songs from this album I’ve heard have been the ones I’ve heard from my sisters room, and I have slight regrets now. This song is good. Not my favourite 5SOS song, that’s reserved for 2014 5SOS, but I can get around this.
Clearly – Grace VanderWaal: Okay. So I only listened to this after seeing it on one of Chloe’s monthly roundups of music, and ever since, I have been obsessed. I obviously knew who Grace was before hearing the song, I mean it was hard to escape her for a little while last year, even here in Australia, but I haven’t exactly kept tabs on her music since then. So I was super interested to here her cover of this song and I was incredibly surprised and impressed. The song is beautiful. Grace’s voice is amazing and it’s the perfect song to lift your spirits and empower you, all the while feeling like this really magical, ethereal piece of music that Grace fronts perfectly. Definitely give this one a listen, it’s one of my favourites on this list.
