Music is my life. Literally cannot go a day without blasting music, whether that be tidying the house, taking photos for the blog or even walking to the shops. It’s just one of those things that I get enjoyment from, something that can turn my mood from sour to chirpy in the space of 2 minutes. Quite a while back I shared a post titled when words fail, music speaks because it genuinely does for me. So much so the quote is now tattooed on my upper back.
My taste in music fluctuates depending on my mood. But one thing’s for certain, 90s dance and 70s & 80s rock will never grow old. I find it quite hard to love current music when there are some absolute classics out there. But sometimes I find some absolute gems and they end up added to my favourite songs playlist on my phone.
Favourite Songs of 2018
The 1975 – TWOTIMETWOTIMETWOTIME
I absolutely adore The 1975. Everything they release is just a pure banger and I pretty much have all of their songs on my phone. From Chocolate to Somebody Else to their latest release TWOTIMETWOTIMETWOTIME, they are all amazing. The 1975 could never release a bad song in my eyes, to be honest though. The dream is to see them in concert, maybe one day.
Post Malone – Better Now
I don’t know what it is but the more I listen to Post Malone songs, the more I get addicted to him. This song, however, is my firm favourite. Its constantly on repeat in the car and I’m forever belting it out in my ‘best’ singing voice. I don’t even relate to the song, it’s the beat that draws me in.
Marshmello & Bastille – Happier
First time I listened to this song I couldn’t finish it, purely because of the video. It’s so sad and I literally cried a million tears. But the more I listened to it the more I fell in love with it. Such a great song, I just don’t recommend watching the video if you dislike sad videos (won’t go too much into it!)
Calvin Harris & Sam Smith – Promises
Completely obsessed with this song, tbh I’m obsessed with everything that Calvin Harris does. I remember going to see him in concert when he first started out. Travelling down to Perth to this tiny concert venue where we bopped away to the likes of ‘Acceptable in the 80s‘ and ‘I Created Disco‘. Now he’s a huge superstar and worked with so many amazing artists. This is a cracker of a song and well worth adding to your playlist.
Scooter – Ramp! (The Logical Song)
You know what? I’m doing it, I’m throwing in my guilty pleasure. I’m not going to deny it, I love Scooter! I used to be so obsessed with them even my Dad got into them as I used to blast the album in my room all the time. Now any song from Scooter just takes me back to the days of long drives with my Dad, blasting Scooter through the speakers and just going wild. Oh, the good old days.
Just a couple of songs that are currently on my playlist. I have an 8-hour journey soon to see my Mamma so these will no doubt be blasted down the road.
