So I’ve decided, due to my love of music and how much I listen to it, every Monday I’ll share songs that I believe you guys should listen to. I like to listen to different types of music e.g. hip hop, r&b, jazz, pop, rock, indie etc. My favourite genre of music is Hip-Hip and rap but I’m always open to new types of music and discovering new artists, whether it’s artists from today or the past. This weeks songs are:
Zayn – Like I Would:
Zayn Malik is a former member of the English boy band, One Direction, but he split from the group to become a solo artist. Some may describe this song as ‘dancefloor-ready R&B jam’ or just ‘electro pop’, but I think it’s a very catchy song that can easily get me dancing. The link is below:
Kasabian – Underdog:
Kasabian are an English rock band that started in 1997. Underdog is the third single in their album West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum and pecked at #32 in the UK singles chart. Critics say that this was the only break out song from the group and their other singles are mediocre. I like the edginess of the song and how it can make someone feel like a rebel. The link to this song is below:
Amy Winehouse – In My Bed:
Amy Winehouse is famous for mixing musical genres e.g. soul. She sadly died in 2011, leaving a legacy behind. ‘In My Bed’ is song from her debut studio album Frank (2003) and I really enjoy this song due to its soul/jazz influence and the soothing melody of the song. The link to this song is below.
Comment on what you think of the songs I’ve chosen this week and if you have any suggestions of what songs to do for next week 🙂
