I just realised that this is my first blog post of 2015! Wahey! Time flies when you're having fun (or in school) Christina has created a series called Five Favourites Friday. Each week we choose five of our favourite things, this week is music!
1. Hozier - Sedated
Well, what can I say? If you're Irish you will definitely know about the lovely Hozier. I struggled to choose a song by Hozier, it was a toss-up between 'Angel of Small Death and The Codeine Scene,' 'To Be Alone' and 'In A Week.' It was a difficult choice but the lyrics of Sedated are so hauntingly beautiful. ''You and I nursing on a poison that never stungOur teeth and lungs are lined with the scum of it
Somewhere for this, death and guns
We are deaf, we are numb
Free and young and we can feel none of it''
2. Taylor Swift - Style
I got 1989 for Christmas, being a long time Taylor fan, I instantly fell in love with the new direction the album has taken. The lyrics are incredibly catchy and contains lots of over-romanticising, something which you can happily sing along to after three hours of insane studying!
3. One Direction - Night Changes
I also bought 'Four' by One Direction. Needless to say my favourite song is Night Changes. The music video is so adorable and when you're surrounded by devoted Directioners in school, they do grow on you!
4. The Coronas - The Long Way
The Coronas are an Irish band who I have listened to for years. I loved their album, 'Closer to you' and was screeching with delight when The Long Way album was released. I've been listening to 'The Long Way' constantly, especially when I had fatigue late last year.
''I'm not too sure what I've become. but I tried as hard as anyone''
5. Gerard Way - Action Cat
During my early teens, I listened to a lot of MCR (My Chemical Romance) FOB and Paramore. I remember being in London when I heard that MCR broke up (my inner 14 year old still cries internally) So when I heard that Gerard Way was releasing a solo album, I knew I had to listen to it. My definite favourite is 'Action Cat' and 'No Shows.' The songs have a different, 80's-esque sound that is refreshing and unique.
So these are my five favourite songs at the moment! Do you have any of the same favourite songs or completely different ones? Let me know in the comments!
Stay Strong, Happy & Fearless!
