It’s that time again! Time to talk about the songs I am obsessed with. Like last week, I’m going to start with the newest songs.
We are starting off with my girl, Miley Cyrus. She’s here two weeks in a row. (Well last week it was Ashley O but that’s her alter ego so it’s all good.)
If you haven’t seen Miley Cyrus’ video for “Mother’s Daughter,” I need you to stop what you are doing and watch it right now. (If you are at work like I am you should not watch the video at work. It is NSFW at all.) It’s a powerful video. Miley doesn’t hold anything back. But has she ever?
The entire video is a tribute to woman empowerment and basically a giant middle finger in the air for any of the haters. It was released July 2nd, and already has had 16,339,126 views.
“My body, my rules.”
“Virginity is a social construct.”
“Not an object.”
We’re going to switch up gears drastically.
The next song is “tiny victories” by Christina Perri. The other day Mom and I (and by “Mom” I mean my aunt Meme) watched this HBO documentary called “Foster.” It was about the foster care system. It followed like 5 people and told their stories. It made us have feelings. This song played at the end of it. I find it to be a beautiful song. (Of course, it is Christina Perri. That’s all she does it beautiful meaningful songs.) And I now want to get a lyric from that song as my next tattoo. I don’t know which lyric yet.
“I’m a little more broken open, but a little more free
And that’s a tiny victory”
The next song is “I Think I’m OKAY” by Machine Gun Kelly ft. YUNGBLUD and Travis Barker. Is this rap? Pop? Rock? I’m not really certain. Whatever it is considered, I love this song. I love the beat and the lyrics and everything. I’ve never actually watched the video for this song so I have no idea what to expect. MGK’s videos are usually. . . .interesting though.
“I might say some stupid things tonight when you pick up this call
I’ve been hearing silence on the other side for way too long”
The next song is “Siren” by The Chainsmokers ft. Aazar. I love them. I don’t think I’ve really not liked a song of theirs tbh.
“I tell myself I love the silence
But maybe I just wanna hear the sound of the sirens”
“heavydirtysoul” by Twenty One Pilots is the next song. I don’t actually like them that much. I know maybe two of their songs. But I love this song. (Also the last of these songs I got on the way home from my Houston trip. My friend Bailey played them and I ended up liking them and listened obsessively like I do.)
“This doesn’t mean I lost my dream
It’s just right now I got a really crazy mind to clean”
I love when rappers pair up with like the opposite of rap. The next song is “Go for Broke” once again by Machine Gun Kelly ft. James Arthur. In case you don’t know who James Arthur is he sings this wonderful wedding song:
“I wanna live with you
Even when we’re ghosts
‘Cause you were always there for me when I needed you most”
And he also sings “Go For Broke.” I love the contrast.
“So I, hope that it was worth it when you was searched and you found what glitters ain’t gold
And I, knew I wasn’t perfect but I know that I made it all on my own”
Check out all these songs!
