Song of the Day: “I Don’t Want to Go Home” by Nick Mulvey

leave a comment »

This song has been in my head all day. It’s a song about love (as most songs are… Thanks Aida the Musical).  I can’t explain why I like this one… It’s just simple and touching.

Songs in My Head: “All I Want” performed by Stevie McCrorie

leave a comment »

Ever since I heard Stevie McCrorie on “The Voice UK,” I fell in love with his voice because of its rawness and sincerity. There’s just something about the way in which he interprets songs that makes me really feel what it is that he is going for if that makes sense to anyone out there in blogland.

His cover of “All I Want,” originally performed by Kodaline, is probably one of my favorites that he does. I hope you enjoy.

Song in My Head: “Letting You Go” by Luke Sital-Singh

leave a comment »

Here’s another song by the really talented Luke Sital-Singh. The one is really intriguing, and I’m still trying to figure out exactly how I understand / read the song (It’s the English major in me).

Here are some of the lyrics that I transcribed from the song:

“Well, it’s been too long. No, it’s been too long, and it’s all my fault this time. I’m a long way back in the distance now, and I don’t know if I’m strong. On the darkest night when I told you lies for a chance I might seem cool, well, the ghosts were there roaming in their underwear, making me look like a fool.

At the breakneck speed of tomorrow, I’m never letting you go. I’m never letting you go. At the heartbreak speed of tomorrow, I’m never letting you go. I’m never letting you go.”

I find his poetry mesmerizing.

Song in My Head Today: “We Don’t Belong Together” by Luke Sital-Singh

leave a comment »

I recently found Luke Sital-Singh thanks to an episode of The Flash on the CW (Netflix binge FTW). After falling in love with “Benediction,” I decided to download the rest of the album and quickly found myself entranced by his clear, powerful vocals and the folk-pop style that he has. Needless to say, I am listening to The Fire Inside, his 2014 album, on repeat and hoping that he’ll be touring at some point… but I digress.

“We Don’t Belong Together” is a song of contradictions and pleas that clearly expose a hope for connection between two people who “don’t belong together.” A love song of sorts, the disparity between what the song seems and the underlying message of disconnection plays with the mind even as the driving tune pleads the case that “Yea you feel alone / But we can feel alone together.”

Enjoy.

Throwback Song of the Day: “Celebrity Skin” from Hole

Don’t know why this song has been in my head, but here it is. There’s something about the rawness of Courtney Love’s performance (both in the recording and live) that just energizes me on a level. Enjoy!
