In Which I Talk About The Music I Love

So though I pretty much listen to the same song over and over again ans my music taste is very basic,  I’d thought I’d write a post about the type of music I enjoy. I love to listen to music while studying, doing homework, writing and reading and it just really helps me destress,

 

Favorite Albums

 

1. Blue Neighborhood by Troye Sivan

I’ve been following Troye Sivan for quite awhile and used to love to watch the videos he made when he was still a frequent youtuber. I remember listening to Happy Little Pill when it first came out and really liking it but I only really got into his first album and I love every single song on it. Troye writes such raw and emotional songs and they break me everytime I listen to them.  He’s coming to Montreal in the fall and I’m seriously considering going.

2. Love, Simon Official Soundtrack

At this point my brand is stanning The Book Thief and Love, Simon so  I just had to mention something Love, Simon related. This soundtrack is so lit. Literally every single song is perfect and I love listening to it because then I get to think about the movie. I’m never going to hear I Want To Dance With Somebody without thinking about that glorious dance number.

3. Hamilton Official Cast Album

Two years later and I’m still as obsessed with Hamilton as I am when I first started listening to it. Lin Manuel Miranda is a genius and I envy him for being so amazing with words. All of the songs in this musical are perfect and create such a beautiful story. Eliza Hamilton deserved better.

4. Badlands by Halsey

Honestly the first time I listened to this album I wasn’t a huge fan and only really checked her out because everyone was talking about her. I found it really crude and just not my thing but her songs have really grown on me. I don’t really relate to anything that goes on in her songs but there’s still bops and I love all of the songs on this album.

5. Mania by Fall Out Boy

Though I love all of their album’s, I’m pretty sure this is my favorite. They’ve really grown since their first album while still keeping that weird quirky vibe that makes them so amazing.  There’s a really large variety on this album and  though I wasn’t a fan of all of the songs at first, they’ve all grown on me.

Favorite Songs

 

1.American Pie by Don McLean.

I only really just got into this song but I love this song so much. It’s very long and kind of repetitive but that refrain is A+. Also I love this song 1000x more after reading They Both Die At The  End and will always think about my precious children Matteo and Rufus.

2. Evermore From Beauty and The Beast Live Action.

As for as I know this is the only original song that wasn’t in the original animated version and I love it so muchy. It’s so raw and emotional and just aghhhh it gets me everytime.  The BATB live action is beautiful and this song just makes it all the more beautiful.

3. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

This song is a ride from start  to finish and is such a mood. I love how there are so many parts that really shouldn’t work together but they somehow fit perfectly. Queen is a legendary band and Bohemian Rhapsody just proves it.

4. Bouncy Ball From Bad Lip Reading.

Okay so this one isn’t that serious( except it kind of it and I love this song so much) but basically bouncy ball is part of this larger video that this youtube channel Bad Lip Reading did of High School Musical. It’s like a minute long and it’s so catchy and hilarious and I really love it. My music tastes are really weird I don’t even know.

5.  JetPack Blues

This is definitely my favorite Fall Out Boy song. It’s so melancholic and beautiful and emotional  and perfect and I love it so much.

Favorite Bands

 

1.Fall Out Boy

FOB is my favorite band of all time and I just love them so much. All of their songs are so interesting and different from everything that I’m used to hearing. I love that you never know what to expect when listening to a Fall Out Boy song and while they kind of have a distinct style, each song is very different from one another. They’re truly amazing and I can’t wait to see what they do next.

2. Imagine Dragons.

I had this weird phase when I was in grade seven and eight where I said I didn’t like music???? Idk I was weird. Anyways Imagine Dragons was pretty much the only music I listened to for a long time and while I’ve kind of grown out of them and don’t listen to them as much as I used to, I still really love them. Demons and Radioactive are classics and I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of them. They’re one of the few people I’ve seen in concerts so they really mean a lot to me.

3.Panic! At The Disco

Okay so i know that P!ATD is only comprised of Brendon Urie now but I still consider it a band. Panic is another band that is really unqieu and different and I just like their songs a lot. Brendon Urie’s voice is A+ and I’m so excited for his new album to come out.

4.ABBA

Who doesn’t like ABBA? All of their songs are fucking amazing and bops and I truly believe that heaven is a non stop dance party with only ABBA songs. Mamma Mia is the best thing  ever and I’m so excited for the sequel. Also ABBA is coming out with new music this fall and I’m dying because 2018 is truly the best year.

5. Mumford & Sons.

Though I’ve always been familiar with their popular songs like Little Lion Man and I Will Wait, I only just discovered their other songs and I really really like them. They’re very soft and restrained and they’re really comforting to listen to.

Favorite Singers.

 

  1. Dua Lipa

I’m not exactly sure what it is about her that I love so much but once I listened to New Rules, I had to listen to all of her other songs and I love all of them. She has a beautiful voice and her songs are really catchy and fun.

2. Shawn Mendes

Not only is he cute and Canadian, he’s also a really good singer. His songs are really nice and almost have a sort of lullaby vibe to them if that makes sense. They’re just really soothing and I really enjoy listening to his songs.

3. Halsey

I pretty much said everything I wanted to say about her when I talked about Badlands but I just really love her songs and her voice and the subjects she broaches in her songs. She’s a biracial bisexual icon and I love her.

4.Taylor Swift

I know everyone hates on her but idk why because her songs are fucking great. I remember me and my friends making up dance routines to You Belong With Me and though I kind of forgot about her as I grew older, I recently started listening to her older songs and I really love them. They’re just really fun to listen to and she’s a great singer. It’s also really interesting to see her evolve.

5. Hayley Kiyoko.

I fell in love with Kiyoko’s music and everything she does when I first watched the Girls Like Girls music video and my love has amplified for her ever since. I love how queer her music is and she’s such an icon.  I stan  the beautiful Lesbian Jesus.

Mania by Fall Out Boy Album Review

So I have like ten book reviews but Fall Out Boy’s new album came out yesterday and it’s wonderful so I’d thought I’d do a little mini review of each song along with my favourite lyric and a ranking from my least favourite to my favourite. Some of these songs I’ve only heard like twice while others I’ve heard many many more times so even though some of these songs may be low on my ranking doesn’t mean I won’t eventually grow to love them.

10.Champion: I really liked this song when I first listened to it but now I’m just kind of bored to it. Its an okay song but I think it’s definitely my least favorite of all of them. I do love the chorus though and find it to be really inspiring but the rest just left me unimpressed

Favourite Lyric: “if I can live through this, I could do anything.”

9. Heaven’s Gate: This one is really slow and not it a good way. It kind of just bores me to be honest and I do like some of the lyrics but it just doesn’t captivate me as much as the other songs.

Favourite Lyric: “you’re the one habit I just can’t kick”

8.Church: I really like this song, I just found it’s a little repetitive and none of the lyrics really speak to me. I do like the rhythm but the rest is a little lacklustre. I couldn’t even pick a lyric that I liked, and the only reason I picked the one below because I like the way it was sung.

Favourite Lyric: “My sanctuary,you’re holy to me.”

7. Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea: This one of the more upbeat songs and it’s great. It’s one of those songs that makes you want to go start a revolution or at least do something wild. As an added bonus the title is so original and I’d love to know the meaning behind it.

Favourite Lyric: “the only thing that’s stopping me is me” and ” some princes don’t become kings.”

6. Bishop’s knife trick: I’m still not sure how I feel about this song, I do like it a lot though and I think that it’ll definitely grow on me the more I listen to it. I love the calmer aspects of the the song and I think that a lot of the lyrics are really beautiful. The stronger aspects of the song is definitely the chorus and the rest is just kind of meh.

Favourite Lyric: “the flows of the city below lead us back to the places we never should have left.”

5. Sunshine Riptide: I haven’t listened to this song many times but I do like it a lot. It’s a little weird but it also has a really nice beat. I also love the title and I think that there’s some really nice imagery associated with the title. I think that there’s other people singing in the song too which I didn’t really like that much.

Favourite Lyric: “cause I’m stuck in the sunshine riptide. Dancing all alone in the morning light.”

4. Wilson Expensive Mistakes: I listened to this song for the first time with the music video along with it and it kind of distracted me and was just really weird so I really didn’t like the song at first. But once I just listened to it by itself, I found that I actually really liked it. I love the rhythm and it’s super catchy. I love the chorus so much.

Favourite Lyric: “I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker colour.”

3.Young and Menace: If I’m not mistaken I’m pretty sure this was the first single that was released off of this album and the minute I listened to it, I knew that this album was going to be great. I love the mood of this song and the buildup to when they start screaming “young and a menace.” is phenomenal. The music video is weird af but I wouldn’t expect anything less from fall out boy

Favourite lyric:“woke up on the wrong side of reality and there’s a that’s just madness coursing right through me”

2.Hold me Tight or Don’t: I’m not really sure why but this song always gets me really emotional and it’s just super relatable for some reason. ” this isn’t how our story ends” is such a wonderful Lyric and I love the way he sings it and I think it really encompasses the song really well. While it makes me kind of emotional it also makes me want to dance and it’s just such a bop. I didn’t like it that much first but I’ve grown to love it.

Favourite Lyric: ” this isn’t how our story ends.”

1. Last of the Real Ones: This my favourite one hands down no doubt about it and probably my top five favourite fall out boy songs. There’s just something so wonderful about the wrong that makes me so happy and pumped. The melody is brilliant as well as the lyrics and it’s one of the few songs that I never skip when it comes on shuffle. Also the piano at the beginning is on point.

Favourite Lyric:” cause you’re the last of a dying breed, Write your name in the wet concrete, I wonder if your therapist knows everything about me.”
