First of all, happy Valentine’s Day to everyone. This is a special Valentine’s Day post. Now let’s get down to the music. One of my favorite new tunes is ‘Out of My League’ by Fitz & The Tantrums. I adore the positiveness of this track. It starts off with the line “more than just a dream.” The lead singer is singing to his love. He is blown away that he is with the girl of his dreams. As the title states, she “was out of [his] league.” This song is perfect for your Valentine’s Day. I hope your day is as happy as this tune makes me.
I have been in love with Tom Odell‘s ‘Can’t Pretend’ for a bit. It is a great tune. Tom Odell is attached to his love. He has wounds that only his love can mend. He sings “feel our bodies grow + our souls they blend. Yeah love, I hope you know how much my heart depends.” The track is addictive. You will be singing this tune for days.
‘Please Don’t Say You Love Me’ by Gabrielle Aplin is a lovely song. It is beautifully written. Gabrielle Aplin is happy in the relationship that she is in. She does not want to rush a good thing. Her partner makes her heart skip, but she does not want him/her to say that he/she loves her. This is a positively real tune. She is spilling out her feelings. I am sure that some of you can completely relate to this song. “Please don’t say you love me, ’cause I might not cay it back.”
Paloma Faith is a wonderful artist. She has a powerful voice + puts out great music. I am currently in love with one of her new songs called ‘Blood, Sweat & Tears.’ My favorite lines of the song are: “It takes two imperfect people to dance a sweet ballet…when I take my mask off, it’s you I want to hold.” I hope this is released as a single in the UK. It would do really well on the charts. Have fun dancing to this disco-worthy tune.
The last song I have for you is sadly beautiful. ‘Lay Me Down’ by the new artist Sam Smith is amazing + co-produced by Disclosure. You might know Sam Smith from the genius Disclosure tune ‘Latch.’ He did the vocals for that track. His voice is full of soul. The lyrics + emotion of ‘Lay Me Down’ will tear your heart into pieces. He is terribly missing his love. “Your touch, your skin, where do I begin? No words can explain the way I’m missing you…these tears, they tell their own story. You told me not to cry when you were gone. But the feeling’s overwhelming, they’re much too strong.” I do not want to break your heart on Valentine’s Day, but I think I just might. Sam Smith is an artist to watch out for this year. He is extremely talented + is going places in 2013.
