Drunk Me

I was watching my Instagram stories as usual and I saw a drunk girl in the back of an uber belting out the words to this song. I didn’t know what the song was so I sent the Insta story to one of my country music loving friends. She was obviously able to identify the song quickly for me so I thought I should share it here since I have been listening to it every time I walk my dog lately.

Drunk Me is a song by Country Singer Mitchell Tenpenny. The song is about a man with a drinking problem who was super problematic due to his drinking problem, losing the love of his life and then choosing to stop drinking after she is gone. Isn’t this a time old tale – you don’t know what you got till its gone? The song is great but deeply problematic in many ways. It basically sympathizes with a drunk man who probably abusing his partner when intoxicated. While it is a hit song, there is a lot to unpack while listening to it. Otherwise, you can aimlessly enjoy this song or you can spend your time analyzing it for fun.

Love Songs – From a Survey

Last month, I asked a group of women for their favourite love songs. Approximately 50-75 women responded with their favourite love songs or just playlists they had made for their lovers or when they were in love. I took their responses and made a Spotify playlist from them! I was listening to it today and realized that it is just too good to not share! So, here it is! I have attached the playlist below. I hope that you give it a listen and find a new romantic song that you love.

This is the playlist! “In Love but Not” because I am as single as they come. I hope you enjoy!

Baby Can I Hold You

This song has been in my head for the past two days. I knew all of the words but I just could not remember the artist. I decided to make a post about it so that I can remember it in the future!

Baby Can I Hold You is a song by artist Tracy Chapman. While it is a major throwback, it is definitely one of those beautiful love songs. I haven’t really had a chance to sit down and truly analyze it and find the deeper meaning and context. Maybe one day I will and update this post.

If I Can’t Have You

I love this song! Its a cute little ode to a love that’s lost, but in the early stage of being lost. This song is basically about being on a break or a new break up and then realizing that you truly love and want to be with that person but it also feels like understanding that its okay to love someone and know that its time to move on. I just also think that this is a great song and well written. While Shawn Mendes did record this song, we all know that Teddy Gieger (his trusty ghost writer) penned this song, and she wrote it around a time when she broke up with her Fiance.

Overall, the lyrics are simple and repetitive but this is a quality top 40 pop song. Happy Listening!

 

Almost Over You

I haven’t always been a Jessie James Decker fan music wise, however, this song from her new album Southern Girl City Lights is an amazing one. Almost Over You is a country love song performed by Decker and fellow country musician, Randy Houser. Throughout dealing with my breakup, I have found myself listening to this song quite a bit. The combination of Decker and Houser’s voices make this song such a masterpiece, and paints colour with the lyrics. Whether or not your heart is broken, this is a song worth listening to.
