My Top 25 Favourite Albums of The Decade (2010-2019)

Hello all,

So, as we hit October 2019 we can pretty much see the decade slowly coming to a close. It was most certainly a very interesting decade indeed. Especially for music. This decade in music has been been quite astonishing, with more music being created than at any other time in history. I would actually love to know some statistics on that. Music is way to express our humanity and to bring us together. The lyrics and sounds that individuals can create, have the ability to echo a profound impact on society. Music has stood the test of time and looking back and reflecting on all that has come before us, is truly something beautiful. However, I shall give credit where credit is due because we have definitely seen some incredible art created in these recent years. This decade has seen the rise of pop to a new extreme, the creation of revolutionary modern rap, the exploration of new levels of R&B and so much more.

In Depth Album Review of Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’

Hello all,

If a rock is what you have been living under for the past week, you may not know. However, if you are any regular human with an internet connection, you would have likely seen that Taylor Swift released her new album ‘Lover’, possessing 18 songs about the concept of love and all its various and beautiful forms. As a massive fan of Taylor and her music I was excited to hear the new songs but was worried considering the first two singles released ‘ME!’ and ‘You Need To Calm Down’ both came across quite lyrically amateur. Thankfully, all my doubts were proven wrong, as I simply cannot get enough of this new music! It’s a new, transformative era of Taylor Swift. One that has came about through maturity and as a result of the trials and tribulations undergone by Taylor, both privately and publicly in recent years.

The Playlist Of My Life

Maybe it’s just me, but does anyone else love going through all the ‘playlist of my life’ videos on Teen Vogue’s Youtube? Well, for quite some time now they have been my go-too videos to watch when I am bored. I think you can tell a lot about a person by the type of music they listen too, and so seeing which artists like similar music to me is always interesting, as is finding out which artists listen to music that is completely opposite to my own. Basically, if you have not seen the videos, they have a celebrity guest who creates a playlist of ten songs that represent their life, both past or present. Some songs have surface level meanings to the artist, while other artists have songs that have much deeper meaning to them. Either way, I think discussing aspects of your life as represented my songs is a really great idea and I thought what better way to continue the trend than by creating my own ‘playlist of my life.’ Continue reading “The Playlist Of My Life”

Songs To Listen Too When You Want To Cry

Music. The way we communicate our deepest emotions in a small but impactful way. This is probably the most accessible and common form that we see ourselves represented on a daily basis; through song. Music manifests countless emotions through lyrics and composition, which will resonate and affect each person in a different way, depending on their own set of circumstances at that current point in time. The songs I have compiled for this blog post are those which seek to bring out an emotional response of sadness or reflection upon events or emotions that one may come across in life. These songs present themes that are very real, relevant and relatable. Continue reading “Songs To Listen Too When You Want To Cry”

My Top 20 Favourite Albums of 2018

It has now been over a month since the end of 2018. However, I never got around to writing down my favourite albums of 2018, as I was just so caught up with other things. I am here now, and have finally decided to write it down, because why not! Personally, I felt 2018 was one of my favourite years for music. I absolutely adored so many albums and songs that came out throughout the year, that in reality, made it extremely hard to choose 20 of my favourites. Below, are from 20th-1st, the top albums for me that really stood out and my favourite songs from each (of the top 10)! Feel free to comment or shoot me a message if you agree, or if you have any albums you believe I left off or you think should of been higher/lower! Thanks for all the recent support!

My Grammy Hopes & Predictions

As we approach the 61st Grammy’s, I thought I would write down who I would personally give each of the more well-known category awards too, and some other awards which I can fairly judge on. That is not to say that the other categories are any less important! However, these are just the categories that I can judge truthfully, who I think is the most deserving, based on having listened to all the music nominated in the category. Therefore, this is not who I think will win, but who I would love to see win! So below, I have put the award, the nominees and in bold, the nominee I would love to see win!
