Music is one of those weird topics that everyone has an opinion on. From grandma, to that punk down the street to weird Mr. Jones (who lives next door and has way too many cats for person), everyone knows the type of music they like or adamantly don’t.
That being said, I am now going to try and break down the barriers (aka Reagan Smash) this issue and offer five songs you might want to check out- even if it’s only for 10 seconds before you chuck the computer against the wall to make the noises stop.
Number One: Prayer in C -Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz
And with this selection you might have just closed the post promising never to return to this god forsaken place every again. But if you stuck around thank you for having an open mind. Don’t ask me why but for the life of me I can not get this song out of my head. Plus even if you don’t like the song the music video is pretty cool… just admit it no one will judge you.
Number Two: Take Me to Church by Hozier
One hit wonder? Most likely. But that doesn’t mean we can’t welcome Mr. Hozier to sit at the same table as Cisco, Meghan Trainor and Lou Bega (Mambo Number 5). The music video is a little intense (and dark) but its music you don’t have to watch it if you don’t want to.
Number Three: Stolen Dance by Milky Chance
For this I had to break out the skinny jeans and dive deep into my inner hipster. Yes, the lyrics are that of a whinny 6th grader who is figuring out “real world” problems for the first time (like why the girl he secretly takes pictures of while collecting her used gum doesn’t like him). But if you can make it to the chorus it’s quite catchy and might serve you well as some background music.
Number Four: Otherside by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Feat. Fences
Ok so this isn’t technically new, but with the internet what really is? Whether you would like to admit it or not Mr. Thrift Shop can actually rap. Just take it all in (like the drugs he is rapping about) and give it a try. Peer pressure still works right?
Number Five (Congrats on making it all the way through): Drinking Class by Lee Brice:
Yea yea yea you hate country I get it. But do you hate freedom? America? Should I report you to the FBI for being a communist? No… ok then take a listen…
