SOTW #6

Hello, I know I forgot last weeks SOTW but here is one for this week. Pretty much the song of the week is the same as last weeks that I was going to post.

This song might be a repeat but I really don’t care at this moment. 🙂

This Old Dog by Mac Demarco

Good News! I am going to see him this year for Austin City Limits Live on October along with The Flaming Lips. I haven’t heard much of their stuff but I remembered that I had at least one song by them, so I should probably start listening to them.

For a good Oldie…

Dreams by The Cranberries

Thanks Guys for your patience!

☀️🌿Summer Plans 🌿☀️

Hello everyone! I am sorry I have not been posting and my previous post was in a different format, I so not have good reception back in my home town and no internet or cable since we can afford it. That is one thing I miss about being on my own in Austin, I had the access to internet and walking distance to places. I’m from a small town and pretty much it is boring. It is peoples goals and plans to move away from here since it completely sucks being here. But all my family is here and friends and I missed them so much.

But I have some plans for the summer, while most might go to summer school or get a job… I am planning to go to Japan around June 24th to visit my father and his wife!!! This is a very big thing for me, I have not been out of the country and I feel this would be such an amazing experience. I believe I should be there for three weeks. Of course when I’m there I will have access to internet and I will be able to tell you all about the things I see there and do there while I’m on vacation. I will try to also talk about music and new albums I’ve been listening to. I’ve listened to over five albums and I want to really listen to them that way I can tell you how they really are and my recommendations from it. I will also be really a lot of novels and I already have a few in mind to talk about. And of course poetry and playlists should happen too.

Again! I am sorry I have not been posting as  much, since it is not under my control. But I will try my best to make sure to get signal to post through my phone. I hope everyone is having a great summer and I’ll try to compose a summer playlist soon! 

Thanks Guys!

30 Day of Songs: Day #30

Day 30: A song that reminds of myself or represents me.

Hello! I am sorry I missed a day in the 30 days of Songs challenge. Yesterday I moved out of my dorm and arrived back in my hometown for the summer. I also do not have any access to internet at my house, but don’t worry I’ll manage. I always manage. It might just be difficult to post through my phone only. So again I apologize for not posting soon or recently. I have been enjoying the time I have been back at home

So this is the last day of the challenge. At least I answered all of them, I did skip a day here and there but I did answer and I had a great time at it. It was really interesting to see what songs I would pick and I tried hard not to stick to a pattern and really venture out what songs I liked. If I were to pick a song that represents me… I think I would have to go with:

Venus as a Boy by Björk

This song has so much meaning to me. This actually reminds me a lot of the years I would listen to Björk all the time everyday. I believe I have listened to every single song she has, and I’m being serious. I feel this song represents me on different levels, my innocences, my adult awakening, sexuality, love, passion,emotion,empathy, and just this weird side of me that some people fail to notice or accept.

Again I am sorry for not posting as much, I will try to get better and figure out a weekly plan.

Thank you!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

30 Days of Songs: Day #29

Day 29: A song you remember from your childhood

Hmm hmm hmm hmm. I really don’t know or remember songs from childhood. Music was just everywhere for me. There is not really one band or artist, or song that I could name. So here is a collection of old Hollie tunes. Some of these also count as my preteen years, as that was my childhood also.

I’ve been Tired by The Pixies, Of course the Pixies are always in my heart and childhood.

It’s Oh so Quiet by Björk, my Dad showed me this song when I was little and since then I have become a huge Björk fan.

Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush, I have no idea how I heard of Kate Bush, I think my Dad showed her to me but honestly it was a random find for me and I love her voice no matter what people think.

 

How Soon is Now? by The Smiths, Of course 😉

Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2

Music of my childhood reminds me a lot about car rides and music blasting in the speakers. I pretty thankful for my parents for giving me the gift of such great music. Most of these songs are older than me and aren’t even in my own time era, but I love them.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

30 Days of Songs: Day #28

Day 28: A song by an artist whose voice you love

Morrissey baby!! Morrissey from the The Smiths has such a lovely, sexy, somber voice. I absolutely love him and can’t get enough of him. Someday I will see him in concert.

Disappointed by Morrissey

Last of the Famous International Playboy by Morrissey , I am that boy dancing in his room

There is a Light that Never Goes Out by The Smiths

I have two of their records and I remember those summer days listening to them over and over in my room. Such sad yet heartwarming music.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

30 Days of Songs: Day #27

Day 27: A song that breaks your heart.

Bookends Theme-Reprise by Simon and Garfunkle

Ladies and Gentleman We are Floating In Space by Spiritualized

This is me and my mom’s sad song, it also appears in the movie Vanilla Sky which I have mentioned before.

The Only Living Boy In New York by Simon and Garfunkle

Heroes by David Bowie

This always makes me want to cry, it hurts so much to listen to this.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

One artists I have been some what obsessing over is Kali Uchis. First off, I think she is a beautiful woman with a very unique voice. She is a Colombian-American singer-songwriter. She sings and makes music in the style of should, indie-pop,R&B, and electronic. The first time I have heard of her was in Tyler the Creators song PERFECT, a song I have been obsessing over beacause of the beauty of the music video and vocals from the three performers. I really do appreciate her voice and the soulfulness of it, very different from a voice I heard of and I can not think of anyone else to compare it to. Its a surprise that I have found her, her beauty and voice is so empowering to me to feel beautiful to myself.
