Hey everyone! Hope you’re all having a great week. To make your week even better, read on for a new set of song suggestions (which all are rated 7/7) by yours truly 🙂
- Kings of Convenience – I’d Rather Dance With You
Artist(s): Kings of Convenience
Thoughts: When I first discovered this duo from Norway, I immediately began to look for their best songs, and this is definitely one of them; others are Misread and Boat Behind. This song, in particular, has such a catchy composition and some great guitar additions that one can’t help but move along to the music, literally “getting into the swing” (as the lyrics go). And the meaning of the lyrics themselves gets to me for some reason. The song is about moving past the awkward phase of talking to someone because two people can carry a conversation only when there is something to talk about. Instead, the lyrics focus on skipping that ‘talking’ stage and moving straight to expression, which is great.
- Tennyson – Body Language (feat. Aloe Blacc)
Artist(s): Tennyson, Aloe Blacc
Thoughts: Even though the genre may be dance or electronic, I still get a lo-fi hip-hop vibe whenever this one comes on shuffle. It’s a song good enough to get moving to but also good enough to just bob your head along to, and either way, I enjoy it. Normally, I’d listen to this in a cafe which plays good lounge music in the background. Also, Aloe Blacc’s voice may be familiar to some from Avicii’s Wake Me Up.
- Darius – Hot Hands
Artist(s): Darius Danesh
Genre: Dance/Electronic, Disco House
Thoughts: Even though a bit repetitive, this track really has a way with its mellow chords, vocals and – uh – quite romantic lyrics (?) that might make you want this track on repeat while you just wonder why you’ve been listening to it 5 times a day. That was my 13-year-old self about 4 years ago and I still listen to it, maybe just not as many times. To me, it still holds a special place in my go-to playlist for when I need some music with a bit of RnB, House and a lot of other genres moulded into one. Honestly, genres don’t even need to exist anymore, with such kind of genre-bending music coming up every now and then 🙂
That was all for this week, see you all next time 🙂
