BEST 2013 MASHUP: THE XX AND BASTILLE'S NO ANGELS

After ranting about my love for Cara Delevingne on my previous post, I started playing around with other songs YouTube suggested me, and it eventually lead me to this. Nothing but the greatest mashup of the year — Bastille's version of TLC's No Scrubs and The XX's Angel posted by none other than the amazing Olivier Duterte, aka The Sound You Need.

CARA DELEVINGNE SINGS SUN DON'T SHINE WITH WILL HEARD

As if Victoria's Secret's model Cara Delevingne wasn't fucking perfect enough already, here's yet another reason to lower your self-esteem. In the video below, she joins Will Heard on an acoustic performance of Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine). Cara, stop being so damn perfect, please. :)

AND I'D SING A SONG THAT'D BE JUST OURS, BUT I SANG THEM ALL TO ANOTHER HEART


I'm so glad I got to drive down to Manhattan for Columbus weekend, I was just about to explode from everything up here. A break much needed, and of course, it's not a break without great music!
Heard this song while I was in the city, and of course I had to SoundHound it! Ha.
I'm absolutely in love and obsessed with Tom Odell now! Here's Another Love, which probably has the most amazing lyrics I have heard in a while.

I TURNED MY BACK AND YOU TURNED TO DUST

Everyone that's ever been in love knows that break ups are not fun.
Don't feel like saying much, just posting this song for future references. Been listening to Keaton Henson nonstop since Sunday, I think Sweetheart, What Have You Done To Us might be my favorite song by him (or at least the one that's made me shed the most tears, that is).

THE ARCTIC MONKEYS COVER DRAKE'S HOLD ON WE'RE GOING HOME

There's nothing like a nice cover, especially when it's done by such a great band like the Arctic Monkeys. (I apologize, but the fact that Alex Turner, the lead singer, is wearing sunglasses and it is clearly not sunny outside makes me love him a little less) — Regardless of that, here is a cover they recently did of Drake's Hold On, We're Going Home.

AND I AM ONLY AS YOUNG AS THE MINUTE IS FULL OF IT

I still have a couple of drafts on a few shows from the past year, including Ed Sheeran, Jake Bugg, and Mumford and Sons which I have been meaning to post…
But for now, since I am sure everyone's heard of Royals by Lorde, i will post my other favorite song by her — Tennis Court. Damn, she's definitely my favorite 16 year old!


… Unlikely, but just in case there's one or two of you that haven't heard Royals yet… Here it is.

MISERY'S THE MOMENT WHEN I LOST YOU, IT'S PLEASURE IN A COSTUME

It's been months since I last posted a song on here, but I just recently heard Andrew Belle's Pieces, and i could not not blog about it. I absolutely love that man, and I am so excited for his new album, Black Bear, to come out tomorrow! Waahoo.
Aaand since I'm feeling very generous, check the link in the bottom to download this song for free. (For people currently in the US only, sorry!)

CAUSE I JUST WANNA HOLD YOU, BUILD MY WORLD RIGHT AROUND YOU

I swear Alex Clare does the greatest covers, and never ceases to amaze me. Here's him doing Hold Yuh by Gyptian, and I don't think I need to say Alex's version is 39 times better (but I said it anyway…)


OH YOU FILL MY LUNGS WITH SWEETNESS, AND YOU FILL MY HEAD WITH YOU

I've been falling asleep to this song for the past few days, and I honestly think it's one of the most amazing things right now! Anything by The Paper Kites is good, but none of them compare to Bloom. Luckily triple j is giving it out for free, so if you like it, click on the link at the bottom to download it!

HATE TO BE SO EMOTIONAL, I DIDN'T MEAN TO GET PHYSICAL

This one is from a few years ago, but Kings of Leon will just never get old. Pick Up Truck is probably my new favorite song by them, I'm so glad my friend got me into listening to it again.

LANA DEL REY COVERS CHELSEA HOTEL NO. 2

Sorry about this, two Lana Del Rey posts in a row might be a bit too much for some of you… But she just released a new song today, and my day just suddenly got a whole lot better, so it's definitely worth posting.
This is a cover of Leonard Cohen's Chelsea Hotel No. 2, (which, throwing a fun fact in here, is apparently about Janis Joplin).
The video is awesome, and pretty Lana Del Rey-y, but it won't come up on my feed so I'll update it once it works. :)

HOLD ME REALLY TIGHT UNTIL THE STARS LOOK BIG

I'm still obsessed with Lana Del Rey, and I don't see that fading away any time soon, so I might as well post my current favorite song by her — Never Let Me Go. I meeean, is this perfect or what? How can you NOT love Lana?


And here's an extra song, Playing Dangerous, just because…

LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO ME, I ONLY WANNA FALL ASLEEP SO I CAN WALK WITH YOU IN MY DREAMS

There's nothing like looking through my 'Favorites' section on YouTube and finding awesome songs like this one! This one's by Sing Fang (who also happens to be a member of Seabear), and it's called Walk With You. 

EVEN COUNTING SHEEP DON'T HELP ME SLEEP, I JUST TOSS AND TURN RIGHT THERE BESIDE YOU

Here's a pretty sick Canadian band I stumbled upon recently. This song is called Lost In The Light by Bahamas.

TONIGHT YOU AND I, WE ARE BEAUTIFUL LIKE DIAMONDS IN THE SKY

This is by far the BEST version of Rihanna's Diamonds. I have nothing to say apart from the fact that she is so damn perfect.

YOU WERE STONE WHITE SO DELICATE LOST IN THE COLD

I'm developing an obsession with The Cure, and it's getting pretty bad!! I can't get enough of this song called Pictures of You. I'd say a song that's over 8 minutes long is usually way too fucking love, but this   is just pure genius. I love when a song manages to make me shiver even after the 10th time listening to it in a row.

SHE'S GOT A FANCY CAR, SHE WANTS TO TAKE YOU FAR

Love Kimbra, so I thought I'd bring this one back. Here's Settle Down. (In case you didn't recognize her, she's the same artist featured on Gotye's Somebody That I Used To Know.)


LANA DEL REY AND JAY-Z REMIXED BY URBAN NOIZE

Hadn't posted a remix in a while, so here it goes. You obviously can't go wrong with Lana Del Rey, and Jay-Z is a fucking genius. My point is, if you do it right, remixing both artists leaves you with pure awesomeness. Here's Hello, done by Urban Noize.

INTRODUCING… GOVS (JOSIAH BIRRELL)

The 'Free Download' section of this blog was looking a bit lonely, so I decided to look for some new songs today to fill it up a bit. The first song I found was this one, Merseybeat, by a little Australian man known as GOVS, or just simply Josiah Birrell. I can't believe this doesn't even have 300 views on YouTube; this world is kind of sad sometimes… Anyway, give it a go and download it if you wish to.
The more I listen to it, the more I like it!

INTRODUCING… DAMIEN JURADO

This is definitely my jam of the week! Can't remember where I found it, but it was on my YouTube history a while ago, so I gave it a go the other day and fell in love. As if one Damien (Rice) wasn't enough… Damien Jurado just made my week better with Museum of Flight. 
PS- I found a download link for this, but not sure if it's legal or not, so I won't post it juust yet!

STAY AWAKE TO BREAK THE HABIT, SING IN PRAISE OF JACKSON CROWTHER


I've been really into Vampire Weekend lately, which actually kind of sucks because they're playing in Tokyo on Saturday and I won't be there… I guess I'll have to live with it. Here's m79 by this kick ass band.

DOWN BY THE PEOPLE IF THEY LET YOU BREATHE, DON'T GIVE A DAMN IF YOU STILL CAN'T SEE

Jake Bugg, you beautiful human being…
Everything about this man is so perfect, and he is only 18 years old! I don't think I'll ever stop saying this: the Brits sure have the absolute fucking best musicians! Below is my favorite song by Bugg, Broken.

YOU OUGHTA LOOK OUT ALSO STANDS FOR YOLO

Anyone who's ever heard The Lonely Island knows they're the silliest "group" ever, (I can't believe they're even considered as 'musicians'). Anyway, here's their latest 'hit' (sadly), but I will admit, as trashy as it is, they somehow always manage to make their songs funny and somewhat good. I mean, Natalie Portman anyone? Beats any rapper all day, every day!
YOLO features Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar. Enjoy?


I DON'T EVER WANT TO LET YOU DOWN, I DON'T EVER WANT TO LEAVE THIS TOWN

I'm pretty sure I have developed a little crush on Imagine Dragons over the past few months, and It's Time definitely takes home the prize for best song! ha 
Such an awesome band.

MAYBE A LITTLE SLICKER FOR THE RAIN, MAYBE JUST A GOOD BOOK AND A HEART TO BREAK

Prepare yourself for this, because it is hands down the best song you'll hear all week. Here's Mother Mother's insanely good song, Bit By Bit

A CERTIFICATE ON PAPER ISN'T GONNA CHANGE IT ALL, BUT IT'S A DAMN GOOD PLACE TO START

I'm usually not the biggest hip-hop fan, but there's a few songs here and there that I like to listen to once in a while, and Same Love by Macklemore, Ryan Lewis and Mary Lambert is just one of them. Such an awesome song, and — quoting a comment I just saw— "It takes balls for a straight rapper to risk his career and call out the homophobia in the Hip-Hop industry."

DANCE LOVE AND DIE WHILE WE'RE YOUNG

It's been a while since I last posted a mashup, so here it goes. This one is called Dance, Love And Die While We're Young, and it's by the one and only Marc Johnce. (Duh!) In case you're wondering, this beauty has 31 artists, and I believe they're all from 2012. If there's one thing I know, you can't go with Marc-fucking-Johnce. DJ Earworm who?

Artists featured include: One Direction, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Pixie Lott, Carly Rae Jepsen, Owl City, PSY, Katy Perry, Rihanna, David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, Jason Derulo, Madonna, SIA, Kelly Clarkson, Taio Cruz, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia, Flo Rida, Alicia Keys, and more...

DAMN YOU THINK YOU'RE CLEVER FROM A DISTANCE,BUT CAN YOU MAKE ME BETTER IN AN INSTANCE

You may or may not remember a previous post on eurasian singer KENTÖ, who's E.P. was produced by none other than Frankmusik. Well, he recently released his first track, Complicated, from the upcoming EP, and it's so awesome! I'm so happy for my buddy Kento, glad it's finally working out for him! Can't wait to hear what's next.


THIS PILLOW TALK WILL WAKE ME UP NO MATTER WHAT I'M DREAMING

Wild Child is one of the most amazing bands ever, I can't believe I'd never posted any of their songs before. Here's my favorite, Pillow Talk. It's just one of those songs that will never get old.

DON'T WANNA KEEP ON SHARING MY BED WITH SOMEONE THAT I HAVE TO LOVE LESS AND LESS

Looks like I have some catching up to do, so here we go.
Heard this song called Concrete Wall a few weeks ago when I was in Florida, and it's the coolest thing ever!! Definitely checking out more music by Zee Avi once I'm done here.
