October Playlist | 2017

Is it just me or did October just feel like a whole year? Especially the last week or so, it truly felt like forever. October was a weird month for me, I had my birthday so now I'm 20 which doesn't make any difference since I look 15. Other than that I kept myself quite busy, with both university and this little blog. It's been a joy having new content to post every week and the feedback has been amazing, so thank you for that! And that's why this playlist is a bit later than usual, so I apologize for that.
I decided to keep things short this time and recommend my absolute favorites, the best of the best for the month of October. So, here they are:

Finders Keepers by Mabel stood out to me from the very first listen, I just love the vibes of this song. The video correlates with the song perfectly, portraying the message of "just live in the moment and be with the person you want to be with" which I think really goes with the rhythm of the song. Give it a listen!

Another song that I became obsessed with from the start is Either Way by Snakehips feat. Anne-Marie. Personally, I love Anne-Marie & I think she has an amazing voice and Snakehips gave me two amazing remixes to songs I adore ( Warm Water - Banks | Wanderlust - The Weeknd ). So naturally, if they collaborate, I'm bound to love it. I also LOVE the video, it's just so different to anything else I've seen in a while. I love the simplicity of both the video and the song itself. I remember the first time listening to it, I was expecting something very different of the chorus to what I actually heard and I became pleasantly surprised. It was mellow and chill, something I didn't expect from Snakehips as their style is a bit more groovy.

Words can't express how much I've listened to Mura Masa's Love$ick. I know, I know, everybody's over this song but I'm just starting to understand the hype behind it. When it first came out I thought It was nice, but nothing special - so I guess sometimes it takes me longer to process information, or in this case, an awesome song. For those of you who haven't heard it yet, it's a must listen!

Okay, this is the reason why I love the Internet. Somebody has taken the music from Redbone and replaced the lyrics with the lyrics from Sweatpants (both songs by Childish Gambino). And now we have "What Redbone would sound like if you were wearing Sweatpants". How frickin' genius is that?! In my opinion, Sweatpants is one of CG's best songs, so to take those *fire* lyrics and combine them with Redbone's neo-soul sound is a combination I would never think of, but now that it's out in the world - I need it! It's especially interesting as both songs are from different periods of Donald Glover's discography and to have them intertwined is a weird sensation for the ear. He's my ultimate crush, I must admit.

Banks is back with a new song & I'm officially dead. I juST LOVE HER SO MUCH! Okay, fanglirling aside, Underdog is an amazing song. I just adore her for being consistent with her style of music and not for not changing her sound (like other artists that rise to stardom). You can immediately tell a song is by her because she gives words a certain flair and makes them her own.

And that's it! As always, you can click on the individual song titles above, or just click HERE for the whole playlist on Youtube. Until next time, bye!
