My Music of the Moment

My Music of the Moment

You may have noticed that my blog has had a bit of a revamp! It was time for a new look, so I’ve made a few changes and a few additions. I’ve also added a little what I’m listening to page, so that you can keep up with what I’m listening to on my Spotify and uncover my (not so secret) love for dramatically miming Kelly Clarkson classics and singing old school Avril Lavigne songs in the shower when I’m home alone. So as an intro to my new blog and my Spotify page, I thought I’d make a list of some of my favourite songs that I’ve been listening to lately. If you’re interested in listening to these songs on Spotify, I’ve included a link to a playlist with all these songs in below!

STRFKR – Open Your Eyes

Will Joseph Cook – Girls Like Me

Feed Me Jack – Until Then

Max Frost – Adderall

Kishi Bashi – Can’t Let Go, Juno

I also thought I’d make these into a little Spotify playlist for anyone who fancies a listen, but doesn’t really want to bother with the hassle of YouTube videos. So if you’re interested, you canĀ listen to all these songs here.

If you’re like this kind of post, I’d be happy to do updates on a regular basis, giving you a taste of some of my favourite songs of the moment. Let me know what you think!

Calm Down Songs

Calm Down Songs

When I’m feeling really anxious and panicky, I don’t often like music. Noises agitate me, and I find myself feeling worse, no matter how calming the song might be. But when I’m feeling just a bit on edge, music can help to soothe me before I get worse. So here are some of the songs that chill me out before I lose it.

The xx are one of the most chilled out bands I’ve ever come across, and one of my favourites. A few of their songs really comfort me, but this three hour long seamless edit keeps me calm for a long time, and I find it especially useful when I need to get work done because it doesn’t distract me from what I’ve got to do.

Nick Mulvery’s voice is so gentle and soothing, and the gentle acoustic guitar makes me feel safe and cosy. It’s such a nice, chilled, feel-good song, and I can’t get enough of it.

Of Monsters and Men are one of my favourite bands, and Dirty Paws just takes me away to a happy, mystical land where everything is calm. As soon as I hear the opening notes, I find myself instantly relaxing.

If you have any calm down songs, please let me know what they are!
