Well, I guess this is the first blog post...
I thought I'd start off the blog with a little about me and what some of my favorite songs are right now. So, here we go!
Miracle - The Score
This song is nothing short of incredible. I'm honestly surprised The Score isn't more famous. They're the kind of band where you listen to their songs for the first time and you think it's a beloved classic song. Their songs are so inspirational and motivational as well as foot-stomping anthems. With their debut full-length LP, now is the time to get in on this rising band. They're one of my favorite bands.
Sooner Or Later - Aaron Carter
This song has been out for a while but it has been one of my favorite songs all summer. This is another hidden gem. 'Sooner Or Later' is filled with pulsing, synth-filled drops, a catchy hook, and lyrics that ring true for the younger generation. This song is the perfect crossroads of pop, EDM, and a little bit of R&B.
Complicated (feat. Kiiara) - Dimitri Vegas &I Like Mike vs. David Guetta
Yet another hidden gem, this song is one of the catchiest songs I've ever listened to. With lyrics that make you want to sing right along and a drop that is equal parts catchy and thrilling, I often have this song stuck in my head for days. Really, it's that good.
Starboy (feat. Daft Punk), Party Monster, False Alarm, Reminder - The Weeknd
Yes, this is four songs but I have been loving these four songs. They're all great alternative R&B jams with well-written lyrics, catchy beats, and a dark tone to them that just goes to show how The Weeknd is a master of genre-bending. Especially when listening to the songs back to back, you hear the fluid and masterful transitions between songs that makes you wonder how the transition occurred so smoothly. Of them, 'Party Monster' is my most consistent favorite.
All The Right Moves - OneRepublic
Yes, this song is several years old but it still holds up over time. It is a catchy pop-rock song with just enough guitars for rock fans and just enough synthesizers and drums for pop fans. It also helps that the song has one of the most catchy choruses.
Runner-Up Too Close - Alex Clare
This song just barely missed the list. With one of the most head-banging drops ever to grace the radio and just incredible singing from Alex Clare, it's no wonder this song reached a peak of number 7 on the Hot 100. Even this many years later, this is still a serious jam.
Well, that's my favorite songs as of right now! Thanks so much for reading and I'll be back soon. See you guys!
