thirty day writing challenges, day seven: write about ten songs that you’re loving right now
1. red light // the regrettes
i’ve already mentioned the regrettes too many time on this blog, but I JUST ADORE THEIR TEEN ROCK. this is a song that you can just rock and dance violently in the solace of your bedroom and scream the lyrics with your hairbrush while thinking of the object of your affection. it’s so iconic, i’m telling you. it gives me mad nostalgia for something that happened recently so lmao.
2. (fuck a) silver lining // panic! at the disco
i am so excited for Pray For The Wicked, their next studio album. ALL OF THE RELEASED SONGS ARE STRAIGHT BOPS, TRY TO CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE. i feel like say amen (saturday night) got a lot of attention, but no one really listened to silver lining which released the same day. i really liked the way brendon described it in his livestream. but it gives really good vibes, i like the horns, and i really like the skater vibes.
3. moon // foolish wanderers
i found this little gem while going through aesthetic song lyrics channels and it’s such a sweet song. lately, i’ve felt celestial and you’ll probably see from the next one, too. it’s a nice duet, and the aesthetics and imagery of it are so peaceful.
4. honey in the sun // camera obscura
my orchestra teacher performed this song when we were working on our composition projects about his best friend who died of cancer around new year’s day. he did a composition of this song with an autoharp, which i didn’t even know was a thing honestly. it moved me to tears because it made me so sad. so i searched for the song found it, and it was more upbeat than how my teacher performed it, but the depressing lyrics are still there. it has great lyricism and it gives me the indie vibes from music i used to listen to so i feel some type of nostalgia listening to it.
5. back to you // selena gomez
this is probably the most outside choice out of the music i listen to because it don’t really listen to radio stuff, primarily because i don’t really have reasons to or the means to. i was just scrolling around on youtube and i saw this new selena gomez song. i think it was the thumbnail that made me be like, “i guess we can check this out.” i found the lyrics so relatable, and i really liked the music video’s symbolism, so it’s currently just stuck in my head.
6. lonely hearts club // marina and the diamonds
i love marina and the diamonds so much. when i first heard this song, years ago, i heard it, but i wasn’t actually listening to it, you know? so then i watched a video called, “zodiac signs as marina and the diamonds songs”, and it reached this song and i could not playing this clip until i found it myself and i was a little shook. like, why did i not listen to this before. this is a mood, this is a lifestyle.
7. motherlove // bea miller
the recent bea miller album has been out for a while now, and i told myself i would listen to it, but i kept forgetting and forgetting despite actively following her twitter lmao. so one day, i was thinking that i had time to kill after reading pride and prejudice and decided to finally take a listen. i truly love the album, but this song was so empowering that i had to add to the list. whenever you want to feel a little badass, this is a definite bop.
8. be the one // dua lipa
this is just a bop, enough said lmao.
no, but seriously, it’s a jam because … i don’t really know why. it’s just one of those songs like red light where you can dance around in your room like no one’s watching and have the time of your life to me.
9. fool // cavetown
like moon, i found this song by listening and watching aesthetic song lyrics channels. it’s quite melancholy with the feelings of unrequited love. if unrequited love doesn’t explain my life in a nutshell, i don’t know what does. to know that the artist is around my age just adds to the relatability and feelings towards this song.
10. bubblegum // clairo
i can’t quite remember how i found this song, but i think i had come home from my ap chemistry exam and i was just cleaning and i was bored. i was watching a video and the song was okaying and i was like… “yo, what is this?” i did some digging and i finally found it and honestly, it described my feelings during those days. the pain and the overwhelming sweetness that comes with feelings coming back was just something that hit really close to home.
