Music

Oh hey its Monday

I spent my morning traveling in to the city listening to songs from Master of None season 2. Everyone please watch the show on Netflix, one of the best things to have dropped this year.

Happy Monday

Green Light came out about 3 days before I left NZ to move to Melbourne and I had this song on repeat on the plane ride over. I had it on repeat as I was too tired and too emotional to change the playlist, I felt like I was in some cliche movie montage of a female 20 something about to make a massive change in her life, which I was. Anyway Melodrama is an excellent album, I’m sure you’re already listening.

Happy Tuesday

Happy Tuesday! Start of the working week here in Australia (we just had the Queen’s birthday long weekend). Feeling rather anxious at the start of this week, but I am reminding myself to stay grateful. Here’s what I have been listening to all weekend, Dear Evan Hansen is so so so so good! Now that it has won the Tony Award I hope it will stay put on Broadway for quite sometime yet, so I can come and see it!

Happy Tuesday (It’s 12:21am)

Live Forever has been in my head all afternoon since watching videos of the Manchester One Love concert online. Random story when I was six years old, must have been around 1996ish, I use to say Oasis was my favourite band although I think for some reason I kept confusing them with Matchbox Twenty *insert shrugging emoji.* I can’t elaborate on that story further as I was six years old and I can’t remember. Anyway I’ll stop now before I start rambling on, as it is late, 90s Britpop is epic and that’s all I really have to say about that.

Happy Monday

One of my favourite things to do is share music with friends. So I’m going to make this a regular thing. For much of 2016 I think I was only really listening to the Hamilton Broadway Cast Recording. I can’t say I was actively following the latest music releases all that much. I had tickets to see Coldplay live in Auckland last year and about day before the gig found out that this lady, Lianne La Havas, was one of the support acts. I had no idea who she was but clearly a lot of other people did, and she had high praise. She was a protege of Prince’s! I was so happy I managed to catch half of her set and hear her sing this song, the next day I found her album Blood on Apple Music and I’ve been obsessed since.

Happy Monday

This is my favourite song and I thought I would share it with you at the start of a new week. I first heard this song when I was 19, its a song that for reasons unexplained gives me a lot of hope, its romantic, it makes me nostalgic for experiences and memories that aren’t my own. Its just so darn beautiful, more people have to hear it.

Happy Monday

This song, this movie, and its soundtrack has been an instant mood booster to my Monday. I don’t think I had ever heard Glen Campbell’s Southern Nights until Saturday but its been on repeat since, also Mr Blue Sky! (But I knew that one). Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was nothing but joy for me, I still can’t wipe the smile of my face. So much colour, joy, humor and heart in a movie that also has its fair share of explosions. I saw the first Guardians movie three times in the cinema, so the likelihood of me making a return visit to see Vol. 2 is very high.
