Hello everyone. I hope you’ve had a decent couple of weeks since I last posted. I really enjoyed my trip away, which was the first in well over a year. However, I do feel a little bit aimless now that school has finished and university is still a ways off. It’s made it hard to want to write anything, but hopefully it’ll all be fine after writing a few posts.
Due to the all-consuming nature of exams, I haven’t actually discovered that much music recently. Nevertheless, I did hear some of Adele’s work for the first time, and I can definitely see why it’s so popular. She has such an immense voice. My personal favourite is Rolling in the Deep. I also fell in love with 3 Nights by Dominic Fike, which is quite an unusual yet catchy song. Although I do think it is beyond my musical abilities to describe exactly why this is the case. The there is Money, Fame & Fortune by The Goo Goo Dolls. I’ve already written about other songs of there’s that I’ve enjoyed, but I keep finding more that sit well with me. Their brand of soft pop is one that I find extremely compelling. I also rediscovered the band Sugarland, which my parents often played when I was younger. Listening to Settlin’ again was very nostalgic, and the country nature of the song makes it very easy to lose yourself without too much thought. Finally, I’ve discovered One Night In Bangkok from the musical Chess. I have no idea how the Spotify algorithm decided to recommend this song to me, but it did a good job. Despite never having heard of the musical before, or knowing what happens in it, I found myself caught up in the beat and the message of the song. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did, and I’ll be back with more next week.
