I always try to do a recap of my favourite songs at the end of the month, but this month I thought I wouldn’t be able to because no song caught my fancy for half the month! I was just listening to old songs.
But then, the second half of the month picked up slack like nothing else. I have a few for you now. So, let’s get to them!
There You Are by Zayn
I had this in my Liked Songs on Spotify for a long time but I never gave it a second listen after my first time. One day, it came up in my Daily Mix and I fell totally in love with it. The song’s vibe is what made it one of my favourites this month. I still listen to it sometimes.
Lips on Lips by Tiffany Young
Okay so, the first time I heard this, I found the chorus so weird. I did not like it. But I listened to it again, and I began liking the chorus! And that’s how I started liking it little by little.
Run Away With Me by Carly Rae Jepsen
I actually didn’t even know that Carly was bringing out new music. The last I heard was just Call Me Maybe. I read a tweet thread that described how Carly’s career was being almost sabotaged by Scooter Braun, how her newer music is actually very good but Braun wants more like Call Me Maybe, etc.
It got me curious about her newer music, and I totally loved this one immediately. I haven’t gotten to all of her music yet, but I will. I like this vibe much more.
Lover by Taylor
I will be honest, I did NOT like this song in the beginning. I got wind of the hype and I listened to it when the audio released, and again when the music video came out. But I did not understand why so many people loved it. I found it average.
But then, one day, I found myself humming it?? And I actually knew the chorus lyrics! I was so surprised. I went back and listened to it again, and the third time was the charm. I really liked the song after that.
Daylight by Taylor Swift
Even though I didn’t like Lover in the beginning, I was still looking forward to Taylor’s new album. The concept just appealed to me, and I loved the colours that they were using. The vibe sounded great as well. On my first listen of the complete album, this song stuck out.
The song caught me in it’s melody and lyrics immediately! I listened to it on repeat for a whole day, just getting lost in the song. I listen to it when I’m in the bus, or when I have a quiet moment. It’s perfect for those times.
“My love was as cruel as the cities I lived in.”the first line.
London Boy by Taylor Swift
Once my obsession with Daylight went down a little, I went back and listened to the whole album again. And London Boy caught me in it’s trap. It’s so catchy! I love the lyrics. I keep singing it in my head now. I spent the last two days just listening to this and singing it all the time. I. AM. OBSESSED.
I’m listening to it right now! I want to dance every time I listen to it as well. London Boy makes me happy.
And that’s all the music for this month!
