So lately I've had a lot of songs on repeat, listening to them constantly because I just love them that much. I wanted to share them with you here.
1) Riptide - Vance Joy (x)
I'd listened to song about three times when it first hit the charts, and loved it, but completely forgot about it until a few weeks ago when one of my school friends uploaded a cover of it. I loved her version and I completely and utterly fell in love with the original.
2) Steal My Girl - One Direction (x)
I've been a Directioner since the X Factor days (although closeted for a year but hey), so you can only imagine my excitement and anticipation for the new album, FOUR. What with the free download 'Fireproof' and now the new single 'Steal My Girl', my Directioner-ness is threatening to explode in a colossal fangirl attack.
3) Shake it Off - Taylor Swift (x)
I've never adored Taylor Swift's music, but I can honestly say that I love this song and the accompanying video. It just makes me feel warm and fuzzy and a little bit badass. :3
4) Escape Route - Paramore (x) (sorry - no official video or audio available)
Since the first time I heard 'Brick by Boring Brick', Paramore have been my favourite band. Last year they released a self-titled album and two bonus tracks, available on the deluxe version. In Japan. Yep. Thankfully, some wonderful people out there uploaded audios to the internet, so I can still listen to both 'Escape Route' and 'Native Tongue'. 'Escape Route' is a source of comfort to me - while the rest of 'Paramore' sounds a fair bit different to the band's old music, this one reminds me a little bit of the 'Brand New Eyes' sound, which I love.
5) Keep Your Head Up - Ben Howard (x)
This is another one that I heard a while ago and then forgot about, but I always loved it. The first time I heard it, I didn't see the name of the song or the singer, which meant that I went without hearing it for a few months until it came on in my favourite juice bar. I recognised it and my friend used one of those magical song-finding apps to finally let me know what it is. After forgetting about it for almost a year, it's back to being played for hours on end. You're welcome, neighbors.
