Hello October, the best month of the year. Our super long summer looks like it is finally coming to an end making way for autumn. Halloween, over-sized hoodies and cozy nights in; what's not to love? So it's time to update the playlist to suit the new season. Here's a selection of tracks I've been loving recently.
Zombie- Jamie T: What better month to release this track? I absolutely adore this song. I can't believe that I've literally only just discovered Jamie T's music. How could I let him slip through my radar? Will be searching for more of his music urgently.
Budapest- George Ezra: I love George Ezra's voice. I could listen to him forever. Budapest is my favourite of his songs that I've heard so far. He's a fairly new artist so I don't know how well known he is worldwide, but if you haven't yet check out his music. It's really easy listening and simply beautiful.
Take Me to Church- Hozier: Amen. That's all I have to say.
18- 5 Seconds of Summer: I don't think it's possible for me to create a playlist anymore without including a 5SOS song. I'm just obsessed with every song on their album. I chose this track this time as I turn eighteen this month so I thought it was pretty fitting.
Shake it Off- Taylor Swift: I'm not going to lie, kind of love this song. Can Taylor Swift actually write a bad song? I've been listening to a lot of Radio 1 breakfast where they have named it The Lad Anthem and play it none stop, causing it to get stuck in my head every morning. Don't ask.
Oh Cecilia (Breaking My Heart)- The Vamps: I've been waiting for these boys to release this song for over a year now. This cover is amazing and the video is pretty cool too.
All About That Bass- Meghan Trainor: I first heard this song a while ago and I must admit I wasn't a fan. I just felt that it was shaming those who are on the thinner side, suggesting that they are all against the larger person which is by no means true. However, I've been brought over by the infectious beat. It is far too catchy.
Dance Dance- Fall Out Boy: I decided to watch the music video for this just now as I hadn't seen it since 2006 and I am fully obsessed. I forgot how much I loved this track. I hope to God I looked mildly cooler then the band on my prom. And if not, I will definitely make-up for it at the leavers ball in May.
Sleeping With The Light On- Busted: I've been reminiscing about the McBusted concert I went to in April, especially this song. I'm not sure if everyone around me enjoyed quite as much as I did since I screamed out pretty much every lyric. I should probably mention the fact that I sound like a drowned rat when I sing. Those poor people who chose to stand next to me. Regardless, I enjoyed myself and hearing this song just reminds me of that great night.
Stacy's Mom- Fountains of Wayne: I stuck my iPod on shuffle the other day when walking home from school and this song popped up. I hadn't heard it in ages and I had to try my hardest not to freak out and sing along. So it had to be added here.
Transylvania- McFly: A bonus one since it is nearly Halloween. Plus, have you seen their music video for Transylvania? It made me giggle when I searched for it just before.
I'm thinking about doing these playlists more often so if you like them please let me know and I'll continue to share the music I love. I've also made the playlist available on YouTube to make it easier for you if you want to listen to any of the tracks. What songs are you listening to at the moment? Old or new, I'd love to know.
