Every year in February I try to think of new things that I can discuss around the theme of love because let’s not be ignorant, it is that month AND it is a leap year – that’s meant to be special right?! Last year we celebrated the fact that the best things comes in twos anf looked at the word of Twoprov (not as couples but the way the comedy format is stealing and owning the stage), we have also looked at the comedy film and comedy as a whole! This year we head to the world of music.
Some of the songs I love are not necessarily my favourite songs, instead I find this is a sort of completely different topic all on it’s own. A song that I really love must do a few things to me – firstly make me smile because of the experience of listening to it whilst also making me feel a lump in my throat. All of these songs that I talk about over the next 29 days are songs I really do love and adore and I think their music construction, lyrics and song as a whole are wonderful.
At the start of this paragraph I said that these songs may not be my favourites – well that is true, whilst some may be ones that are, there are ones that are not but that does not mean I truly respect them as songs and these songs make me happy and sad at the same time I know they are in a completely different category and that is what the difference is.
Day 11 – Loner, Yungblud
Why This song?
I went and saw Yungblud live without any knowledge of his music as I think it is important to see acts like this and since then I have become addicted to his music as he is such a talented individual. I was looking through my videos of the gig the other day and recorded a lot of this song live without even realising it. I thought my first real listen of this was on Spotify but obviously not. I really like this song as to me it combines his modern stylings of music with the classic Oasis vibe and whilst it is very different to a lot of his sound, it is a very good song and adore it.
Why do you love this song?
This song is addictive, that is the only way I can really put it, the nineties vibe in the song mixed in with his modern sound work so well. I find it incredibly uplifting and it is one of those songs that when I hear I just want to dance about – that to me is a sign of a great song and it is just so fun even though the lyrics may be contrasting this it is just wonderful.
