This weeks songs are:
1. Chipmunk – Flying High
British Rapper, Chipmunk, released this song in November 2011 and its the lead single of his second studio album, Transition (2011). I love the beat of this track and I’ve been a fan of Chipmunk’s music since I was 10. He has only just come back to the music scene, doing grime, but I still love his old tunes. I really like the music video of this song as well, it was shot in South Africa, please listen to this song below:
2. Timbaland & Magoo – Indian Flute
Timbaland and Magoo are a rap duo from Virginia who met when they were teenagers. I like this song because it is unique in the sense that there is a story being told by a woman in the language of Punjab. The whole song is a dialogue between a man and a woman, it’s pretty much a story of two lovers. Yes, there is an Indian flute in the background which adds to the context of this song and makes it even more beautiful. Check out this song below:
3. Muse – Starlight
Starlight is an alternative rock song by the British alternative rock band, Muse. The album title, Black Holes and Revelations (2006), comes from one of the lyrics in this song “Our hopes and expectations, black holes and revelations“. I really like this song and this band in general, so check out this song below:
Enjoy, and please tell me what you think about my song choices for this week!
