“Hero” by Faouzia
I found this song through what I believe was a playlist based off of “right where you left me.” I fell in love. It’s so simple lyric wise, but like beautiful. Also, it’s catchy as hell with a great beat.
In a relationship, it’s about an equal partnership. I don’t think that one should save the other. You save each other. You become better people and grow with each other.
“I know this ain’t a fairytale, this is real life.”
“Bitter” by FLETCHER and Kito
Y’all, I have listened to this song ten times today already. Now eleven. This song is beast. The beat. The lyrics. Everything. What girl hasn’t been broken up with and the guy gets with another girl the next day? Damn. Love it.
Also that video is like intentionally sexy as fuck. She’s like “Boy, look at what you are missing.”
“I know you think about me when you kiss her. I left a taste in your mouth. Can she taste me now?”
“In the End” by Beth Crowley
Okay I have always loved Beth Crowley. Even way before she ever got onto Spotify. I love her music. Some of my favorite songs include “Battle Cry,” “Red,” “Warrior,” and “Midnight.” Her lyrics are phenomeonal. So rare and exposed. I love that. Yes, they are mostly based on books or shows or movies, but like, they could be towards everything. Take this song for example.
This is about a relationship that’s doomed from the start. Yes, they love each other, but in the end, they are going to destroy each other. Their relationship isn’t going to last.
“But something this powerful and dangerous will burn until there’s nothing left.”
“Mr. Perfectly Fine” by Taylor Swift
Okay, if you don’t know by now that I love Taylor Swift then where have you been this entire time? I’ve only said it a million times and had three blog posts dedicated to her (Lover: Album Review, evermore: Album Review, and How Taylor Swift’s Music Helped Me Embracing ME). So yes, you should know I love her. And I have no shame.
You know what I also love? Those songs that are actually like throwing shade but they don’t sound like it. Like this one. It’s so like, peppy but she’s basically calling him out. This guy dumped her and he’s over it and with another girl, while she’s not. Apparently it’s about Joe Jonas.
“So dignified in your well-pressed suit, So strategized, all the eyes on you, sashay away to your seat. It’s the best seat, in the best room. Oh, he’s so smug, Mr. ‘Always Wins’. So far above me in every sense. So far above feeling anything.”
“All Your Exes” by Julia Michaels
I feel like if I was going to write a love song, this would be. It starts all sweet. . . .then you get to the chorus and you’re like “Oh.” I love it.
I mean who hasn’t dated someone, and they talk about their exes, and you’re like no. I don’t want to hear about them. I don’t care about them. I’m here. Screw them. This song takes that and runs with it. She’s saying I want to be the only one. There’s no exes. I’m all there is. Those exes don’t exist. It’s such a great song.
“I want to live in a world where there’s no exes at all. Like you were waiting for me to be the first thing you fall for.”
“right where you left me” by Taylor Swift
(Repeats what I said under “Mr. Perfectly Fine.”
Wow. This song hit me right in the feels. (Do people still say that anymore?) Like who hasn’t felt this way? Who hasn’t been oh so in love. Felt wanted. Then they drop you. You’re left there. Just waiting and waiting. And that’s all there is. It’s sad and it’s depressing, and per usual the queen Taylor has put that feeling into words. Thank you, Taylor.
“Did you hear about the girl who lives in delusion? Break-ups happen every day, you don’t have to lose it.”
“Strange Love” by Halsey
Wow. This song. It’s fucking hot. Okay? Like the beat, Halsey’s voice. Their voice is amazing. This song is amazing. Honestly, all I’m picturing is like some dark, smoky club, bodies grinding and winding, with a girl dressed in a kickass black dress that’s probably way too short for public fuck ’em, and fuck me heels staring down a guy across the room. You know, that come hither gaze. Just saying. Hello.
I can spout about the meaning of this song because well, I don’t know. I just like the song, okay? Don’t at me. Thanks.
“And everybody wants to know about how it felt to hear you scream. They know you walk like you’re a god. They can’t believe I made you weak.”
Shivers by Ed Sheeran
Oh, Ed. This song makes me want to dance. That is all. Listen to it!
Now go listen to all these songs! What are you listening to? Tell me in the comments! I am always looking for new music!
