Call me, maybe!

I want to have as much fun as these people!

Sometimes all you need is bubblegum pop. And half of young hollywood.

My own video interpretation coming soon!

How can you swallow so much sleep?

Bombay Bicycle Club – How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep

This video is under four minutes long, yet took six months to make. I think the team hand crafted all the props in the video and it’s very elaborate. I realize BBC quickened the beats on the track for the video, to fit the dreamy/ inspiring theme of the video. Usually when I listen to the original audio track though, I find it to be the most hopelessly romantic song :’) Even though there are exactly three lines of very vague lyrics repeated over and over. I could listen to this all day!

Daughter – Landfill

 

I’ve been listening to the same song on repeat for the past two days. Full fledged obsession has to be shared. I even uploaded the song on mediafire so all of you can download it easily. Click here and you won’t regret it. While my mind is usually blown by advanced musical compositions, the simplicity of the melody here is appreciated so that the words – so true, so painful, so understanding – can shine. There are dramatic drops, highs and lows still in the composition, in order to emphasize the emotion of the words at certain points. The song really teases your feelings and tugs at your heartstrings. The voice haunts you long after. Amazeballs.

Name of the artist is Daughter, title of the track is Landfill. In a nutshell it is about being in love with the wrong person, someone you know isn’t good for you but you can’t help it.

Daughter also has another song, ‘youth’ that resounded within me the first time i heard it. Very powerful words.
Fave line,
“And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones.
‘Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.”

Everyday I’m Catgroovin’

I have exactly two minutes before I have to start studying for tomorrow’s test so I’m going to drop you this amazing artist my friend introduced to me, Parov Stelar. First song I heard was Chambermaid Swing which I loved. But the second song I heard, Catgroove, made me fall IN love. Jazz + electronic. No words.

AND WHATEVER YOU DO, JUST WATCH THE YOUTUBE VIDEO below. it’s only 30 seconds long and will change your life. LMFAO’s shuffling synced with catgroove:

Music Monday: Too Close, Too Insistent

It’s Tuesday, but barely, so I’m still going to name this post Music Monday #cheesy.

Alex Care – Too Close it feels like i’m just too close to love you…¬†

I like to think of Alex Care as the male Adele. (This song is comparable to Rolling in the Deep?) ¬†Honestly though, I don’t know where he’s going with the lyrics haha. What does ‘too close to love you’ mean? Are we too tight for me to love you? Or am I this close to loving you?

The Do – Too Insistent (Trentemoeller remix)
What’s so special about me, I’m ordinary.¬†

This song KILLED me the first time I heard it. Apparently I die a lot when listening to good music. The original is kind of monotonous, but the remix is so emotional. I listened to this the entire of January and I’m still going to. I also love the words to it.

Things that inspired me in the past week: The Descendants, Placid Acid

I never knew Hawaii was so big, until I saw the Descendants last week. It’s made up of a bunch of islands and space is so vast with so much nature it’s like paradise. Or at least that’s what many of us would like to think. Because the movie started with George Clooney narrating a disclaimer, that people assume lives are perfect in Hawaii and that Hawaiians are perpetually on vacation. But people in Hawaii have the same problems, same heartbreaks as any one else. And so the story begins.

I wanted to love this movie so bad. I loved the ending, and there were a few special moments throughout, but overall it wasn’t stimulating enough for me to love it. It is cool to see George Clooney take on such a parental role. But I’d like to see another Ocean’s Eleven please. Overall a very family-friendly movie, if your family doesn’t mind sentences like “you cheap slutty hoebag”.

Tourist. – Placid Acid

Another thing that really inspired me this week is this sick sick tune from Tourist, it is called ‘Placid Acid’. I’m dying because I can’t find the mp3 anywhere online, and it kills me when I am out and about with the tune stuck in my head and I can’t satisfy my ear craving because I don’t have the song in my iPod!!!

Quick summary: Tourist is this dude from UK previously known as Little Cloud, and he has done remixes for a buncha songs. Placid Acid though, is his debut solo track and I’m so obsessed with it, it’s been on repeat for the past three days.

Why I love it: It’s electronic, but it’s so fucking chill throughout, and then there’s the amazing poppy bridge at the end that lifts you up way high. I was surfing for new music from my favourite music blogs, usually I’ll let the songs play in a playlist. When this song came on, Eargasm really.

Computer woes

This last thing is really random, but lately I’ve been having problems with my track pad and clicker on my laptop. They haven’t been very responsive. And then I read in a forum that the problem could be a bulging battery that is pushing against the trackpad and affecting the sensitivity of it. So I removed the battery from my laptop and it was like a miracle. I guess the whole ‘overcharging your battery’ thing is so true.
