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 and 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 27 – Outside, Calvin Harris feat Ellie Golding
Why This song?
I have liked this song for a while, I quite like a lot of Calvin Harris music but not really a fan of Ellie so the fact I ended up really enjoying this song really surprised me. I really love the music of this song and the introduction makes me happy everytime. It is such a simple jingle but works so well and somehow emphasizes the emotion of the song.
Why do you love this song?
As I said above the emotion is a strong key as to why I love this track you can hear it vividly through the mix that Calvin has produced. That is one thing I really like about Calvin Harris and it is also why I think he is so huge worldwide, he knows how to construct different and unique songs. I love the musical interludes throughout the song and the high electronic beat is so addictive and all the makings of a great dance track.
