More music you need in your life right now

Hey Happy Bookworms!

I just want to start by saying a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my grandma, I love you so much πŸ€—πŸ’•

So I’ve been wanting to do this post for ages but I’ve kept putting it off because I’ve been so busy! But I think we all need a little music right now so I wanna share some of my favourite artists πŸ™‚

Just like last time I want this to be an ~experience~ so plug your headphones in, load up this post on the web & get ready to have some chill time – enjoy!


My first introduction: Less than I do

The higher I climb, the further I fall when I do
I guess I’ll take this loss on my wasted obsession with you
I thought that I’d finally found something worth seeing through
Now you only remind me of someone I thought that I knew

Fool of myself

I love love LOVE the band CAMINO & it’s honestly a crime I haven’t listened to them more. They have a real mix of upbeat and slow songs but they’re all so gooodddd!

Favourite song: My thoughts on you (I’m listening to it right now 😍) but for a while is a very close 2nd because the beginning is everything

It’s ok, it’s alright, I don’t mind wasting time I’ll be fine
Wear my heart on my sleeve make it harder to breathe for a while
It’s ok its alright I don’t mind wasting time ill be fine
Hide my heart, how I feel, pretend this is real for a while

– for a while

Others I love: See through, I spend too much time in my room, haunted, who says we’re through, 2/14, hush hush, what I want, fool of myself

I’ve only really listened to his Dopamine album but it’s so incredible – the music is so heady and I guarantee you’ll get obsessed! All the tunes are fun and bouncy (idk how do you describe music?) Very upbeat πŸ™‚
And all the lyrics are so beautifully whimsical ✨

I’ll take you way back, countless centuries
Don’t you remember that you were meant to be
My Queen of Hearts, meant to be my love

Past lives

My first introduction: seeing stars

Favourite song: God save our young blood (ft. Lana Del Rey) Go listen to this right now abjsgsydvfyiefygfehb

We carved our love in the mountainside
We soaked our hearts in the rain
And I, waited my whole life, for you

American money

Others I love: American money, 10,000 emerald pools, past lives, electric love, overnight sensation

The 1975

My first introduction: The sound

She said it’s nice to have your friends round
We’re watching a television with no sound

Heart out

Favourite song: I’ve loved them for so long so I think we have to split this up into 2 categories – my favourite song right now is if you’re too shy (let me know) but my all time favourite is robbers πŸ’•

I think the 1975 might possibly be my favourite band ever, I love nearly everything they do. They are absolutely road trip vibes (it’s literally my favourite thing ever to put them on shuffle in the car especially when it’s night πŸŒ™) Their slow songs are I n c r e d i b l e
But under NO CIRCUMSTANCE listen to people, just don’t, your ears will thank me.

Kids don’t want rifles
They want Supreme

I like America & America like me

Others I love: *lists whole discography*
Ok I’m having to be really picky & I’ll split it up into slow songs & upbeat songs…. and then I still had too many so I added ‘middle’ πŸ˜‚
Slow songs: fallingforyou, a change of heart, me, menswear (the instrumental introductionnnnn), be my mistake, Paris
Middle songs: chocolate, heart out, she way out, settle down, loving someone, sex, I like America & America likes me
Upbeat songs (in beat, not always in subject matter – it’s just depression in a disco dress): UGH!, she’s American, It’s not living (if it’s not with you), love it if we made it, girls, give yourself a try, the city, narcissist (ft. No Rome)

I really hope you enjoyed this – maybe found some new songs or artists to listen to.

If you’re on a music spree & want to see my first post where I recommend artists then it’s here!

Now more than ever we all need music < 3

Stay safe guys πŸ’•

    Beautiful original post! The lyrics ‘We carved our love in the mountainside’ I immediately linked to an event in the last few pages of the novel Death’s End. ‘The higher I climb, the further I fall when I do’ sounds like a great line πŸ˜€ hope you and your family are doing well!

      Maggieeee! πŸ˜‚ I’m so glad you’re back! πŸ’•
      Yes it’s obviously a sign that you should check them out because I promise you they’re awesome! They’re just realised a new album but as you’re a newbie I’d steer clear of it for awhile until you get a feel for them! πŸ’–

    I haven’t heard of any of these but I did use the sample option within your post and I got the impression that I’d really like Borns!! I’ll have to check out some of their full songs sometime.
