Fool For Love

This song has been my obsession of the day. Last night, very late into the night, I began watching season 5 of Girls (the HBO show). At the end of the episode, this song played and I instantly had to figure out where I could find it. Fool for Love is a folk-pop song by Lord Huron. To be completely frank, I have never heard of this band before this, however, this is a fun and cute song. Hopefully I will be expanding my current playlist with songs from this band.

Lost In The Light

I don’t actually really know what this song is about, but I do know that its quite beautiful and that I like it a lot. I have not been able to stop listening to it for the past three days. I found it on Spotify, however, I am not too sure about how or where I came upon this song. Lost In The Light is a numodern, folk song by musician Bahamas. I initally fell in love with this song due to its unique instrumentals and the calming sound of his voice. Its a great song for relaxing during a super long subway ride as well. Goal for tomorrow will definetly be to listen to and to decifer the songs lyrics and meaning.

 

My Lilac Tree

Something that many people know about me is that I love my backyard. My lilac tree is one of my favourite things about my backyard, especially when its in full bloom and smelling just so lovely.

 

Floral Typography at Yorkdale Mall

Today, as I was walking through Yorkdale Mall, I noticed this new signage where the Sears store used to be. It is a cute Yorkdale logo written with aritfical flowers to match the new slogan “Where fashion grows, style blossoms”. I thought it was kind of cool that they were able to tie the slogan into the design of the logo. image

Simple Things

I was watching an episode of my new guilty pleasure show Girls (HBO) and this song came on at the end of one of the episodes and I was like “OMG THIS IS TOTALLY MIGUEL”. I had a thought that it was Miguel (the R&B singer) but I had to verify with Siri to be sure and she let me know that it was this song off of his newest album Wildheart.

I have loved Miguel ever since hearing his beautiful and sexual song Adorn and this song is no different to me; I love it just as much. Simple Things is another sexy song that basically makes you want to touch and adore your lover because you just think that they are perfect in every way (well, you think they are perfect for the 4 minute duration of this song). I currently have this song on replay; its chill and so good for an afternoon coffee on the subway train heading southbound.

 

Dirt Road Anthem

If there is one thing that 90% of people who know me know about me, it defiently has to be that I do not like country music that much. The whiny sound that occasionally accompanies the voice is never my cup of tea, however, lately (due to the fault of some of the people I like to call friends) I have started to indulge once in a while in a few select country tunes (generally sans whiny voice).

Dirt Road Anthem is a song by country musician James Aldean that is simply an ode to the basic country life that most country lovin’ people have come to enjoy. I really do love the course of the song; it feels so sentimental. I just feel like I’ve lost that connection to the country life I once/never knew and I need to somehow build a reconnection with it.

 

Valerie (Mark Ronson Revisited Version)

This is one of my favourite songs at the moment. Valerie is a song performed by the late musician Amy Winehouse. It’s not a new song but I just discovered this version of the song, having only heard her live versions prior to this. The BBC Live Lounge 1 version is also very well done. Mark Ronson (whom is currently famously known for his song Uptown Funk with Bruno Mars), puts his own spin on this beautiful song to make it more of a pop, dance, jazzy tune. This song is a beautiful story about a friendship or love that is lost and kind of a call out to find out where this person (aka Valerie) has gone to. The lyrics also hint towards pondering of things past as Winehouse sings about the potential whereabouts of this person today. While it is a fun song, it does have some sad undertones to it as well. I have posted the studio version and a live version below! I like the live version a lot because it displays the talents of Winehouse and how her vocals can paint a picture whether recorded or in live performance. That’s what always been unique about Amy: her ability to paint a picture with her words. That’s evident in this piece as well.
