So 2015 ends today… No big deal, we’re dying everyday anyway (Positivity FTW). I was doing my end-of-the-year cleaning, which means I transferred the songs in my laptop to my hard disk (priorities) and thought it would be nice to share with y’all the songs I kept singing this year. You know, like a tribute to the year that is now ending.
Enough said. If the dude ever sang something, chances are I too sang those throughout the year and will be doing so in many more years to come.
If you have any doubts about his calibre (which you shouldn’t), then listen to these live performances of the man.
(^That’s when he sold out 3 nights at Wembley. Just him, his guitar and his loop pedal.) Genius man. Ain’t he like, really, really cute? ❤
After Ed Sheeran, my favourite is the Irish band, Kodaline (Do all Irish men sing? Sheeran is part Irish, BTW.). In addition to the songs, the videos are pretty damn good too.
The above two videos contain a dog. Hence, it is cute AF.
Some of these songs make me tear up a bit. A teensy bit. In a good way though.
Sia is an absolute legend. Listen to these!
Heidi Klum AND Pedro Pascal in a video together? :O :O :O
Normal people mights sound like a dying animal when they sing Salted Wound. Not Sia, though. She sounds pristine!
The Elastic Heart video was highly controversial according to some people. I liked the song, and the video. Shia Labeouf has done real well
You know that song which you totally die for at the club? That song the slightly intoxicated version of you have choreographed dance steps for? This one is mine. I tots “fire the gun” and “blow kisses” when a DJ puts this on. 😀
Whatever Taylor Swift came up with this year.
Tay-Tay is queen. I do not love all her songs, but whatever I like, I cannot stop listening to.
I have a confession and it is that I did not like Coldplay a while back. Very few people know this about me. But then, Hardwell made a remix of A Sky Full of Stars and life hasn’t been the same for me. Coldplay is my pick-me-up. It clears my mind, their songs do. I feel energized and powerful and full of life after a good session of Viva La Vida. Paradise made me cry the first time I listened to it and is usually playing in the back of my mind at all times. The Scientist is just beautiful, how can people create such good stuff? Fix You is cool too, I just get the vibes of a nursery song from it in the beginning.
Lifehouse – Everything
I couldn’t find the official version of this song on YouTube, but this is the song. We did a skit in school with this song playing in the background and since then I have loved it.
Sidenote: I was the evil of ‘Alcoholism’ in the skit. The teachers must have thought I suited the character really well or something.
Lisa Hannigan brings me straight to Damien Rice. He said this about her in an interview, “I love her so much, and I love her so much that I love that she hasn’t spoken to me – because even in that I have learned so much over the last two years”. For some reason, it breaks my heart that they broke up.
Also, this lady, Megan Davies ,majorly talented.
Happy Little Pill – Troye Sivan
Sivan is a year younger than me and is already on his way to absolute stardom. I am reminded again of how old I am and how less I have achieved in life. #NotCool
Royals – Lorde
Even after 2 years of listening to it almost every day, I am not tired of the song. I don’t really know why.
Remember me wondering whether all Irish men could sing? Turns out they probably do. Hozier is an Irish heartthrob and music creator. Take Me To Church, Someone New and Work Song stand testimony to that!
There are soo many other songs I sang this year, and some of them aren’t even English. These songs, however are on my “favourites” playlist and mean something to me.
So, yeah, New Year and all that ish. Have fun you guys, stay safe, be happy and keep being kind to one another!
