Okay, okay, I went AWOL again on the blog. Sorry about that. Anyway, I'm back today with this month's playlist. Music has really been inspiring me to write my novel, Always You (read it on Wattpad here!), so all these songs are really important to me. Each one of them fits a scene of my book perfectly!
Without further ado, I present to you... the May 2016 playlist!
1) Summertime Sadness | Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey is just gorgeous, isn't she? I do feel like a lot of her songs are repetitive - and are meant to be listened to when you're high - but I love this song anyway. It's so hauntingly beautiful.
// Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore //
2) Born to Die | Lana Del Rey
Yes, another Lana Del Rey song. I like this one especially because of the lyrics and background music. This one would be such a good fit for the murder mystery I'm planning to write in a couple of years - plus, I'm thinking of naming it 'Born to Die'. It's a good name for a thriller, isn't it?
// Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words,
This is the last time
'Cause you and I
We were born to die //
3) Dangerous Woman | Ariana Grande
I'm not a huge fan of Ariana Grande (this is the only song of hers that I like), but this song is really cool. It makes me feel like a dangerous, daring girl even though I'm definitely not one!
// Nothing to prove and
I'm bulletproof and
Know what I'm doing
The way we're movin' like introducing
Us to a new thing //
4) Haunted | Beyonce
This song is a little too risqué, I agree, but it's just so... sexy. And haunting. I only judge people who like Fifty Shades of Grey, but if you don't like this song, I'll probably judge you too.
// My haunted lungs
Ghost in the sheets
I know if I'm haunting you
You must be haunting me //
5) I Really Like You | Carly Rae Jepson
I don't understand this video, and I know the lyrics are very repetitive, but this song is just so catchy! I first heard it when I was doing Blogilates' song challenge, and I've loved it ever since. It also makes me want to work out, which is great!
// Who gave you eyes like that?
Said you could keep them?
I don't know how to act
Or if I should be leaving
I'm running out of time
Going out of my mind
I need to tell you something
Yeah, I need to tell you something //
6) Bad Romance | Lady Gaga
This is a really old song, isn't it? I don't even know if Lady G is making music anymore. Either way, this song is perfect for an upcoming scene from Always You. That's why I love it so.
// I want your drama
The touch of your hand
I want your leather studded kiss in the sand
I want your love //
7) Just Dance | Lady Gaga
I first heard this song on an episode of Pretty Little Liars (I've stopped watching that show, in case you were wondering), and I liked it quite a bit. It was only recently that I was browsing music videos and came across this one. Makes for a good party song, doesn't it?
// Control your poison, babe
"Roses have thorns," they say
And we're all gettin' hosed tonight //
8) Cheap Thrills ft. Sean Paul | Sia
I adore Sia. Her songs are always, always, always on point. I've heard both versions of Cheap Thrills, but this Sean Paul remix is easily my favourite. Another great song to groove to when I'm in the shower.
// Til I hit the dance floor
Hit the dance floor
I got all I need
No I ain't got cash
I ain't got cash
But I got you baby (jus u an me) //
9) The Heart Wants What it Wants | Selena Gomez
Is this song about Justin Bieber? Are they still even together? Eh, who cares. This song kinda reminds me of all the bad decisions I've made in my life, and how, even though I regret them, my life wouldn't be the same if they hadn't happened. Deep, I know. Then again, I'm a deep girl.
// This is a modern fairytale
No happy endings
No wind in our sails
But I can't imagine a life without
Breaking me down, down, down, down //
So, these are the top nine songs I'm loving lately (yes, I wanted to make it an even ten, but couldn't pick anything else). What about you? Have you heard these songs? Do you have any song recommendations for me? Let me know in the comments below.
I'll be back next week with another post, hopefully. Still trying to cure my writer's block. See you then!
