“From Nowhere” by the Amazing Dan Croll!

Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been super busy with school starting up again. But boy, have I got a treat for you today! I have recently fell head over heels in love with “From Nowhere” by Dan Croll. It is literally such an awesome song… And the funny thing is, whenever I listen to it, I am reminded strangely of pineapples. ( ?!!??!?! ) It’s an alternative track (YAY for alternative!!), and it has a bit of rock infused with a tint of calypso-y instruments. When mixed together, those ingredients made a delicious, From-Nowhere Pie. (That was me trying to be clever, I’m not sure how well that worked out.) Anyway: here are the lyrics from this amazing track. Now I’ll be honest with you, the best part of the song is the music I my opinion,so if you’re not satisfied with the lyrics, don’t automatically forget about this song because it is truly great!

Every now and then I fall
Every now and then I lose control
In your eyes I see your thoughts surrounding me
And I’ve a little bit of thought for you

Cause every now and then I fall a bit behind
Every time I stare into your eyes

Your thrills I find
It’s not hard to be left behind
So I’ll run, you’ll hide
We know better than to stay outside

You’re cold and your awake
You said I should have never of stayed
But there’s no better place for me

Cause every now and then I fall a bit behind
Every time I stare into your eyes

Well guys, that’s that for now! I hope you all will check out this tune, it’s just purely spectacular. Have an awesome day and happy listening!

American Girl by Bonnie McKee

American Girl by Bonnie McKee

Bonnie McKee’s new single is sure to be the next big summer song. With a voice somewhat like Ke$ha’s and very funny (but true) lyrics, it may be one of my personal favorite pop songs from this summer! Check it out if you need a fresh, new, upbeat song to jam to this summer.

Crickets (aka my unexpected new favorite song) <<<3333

Ever since, I don’t know, maybe April?, I’ve had Drop City Yacht Club’s (I know, long name) song “Crickets” on my iPad’s music library. However, it wasn’t til about a month ago that I actually listened to it… And all I can say is that it was one of the best actions I’ve made in a while!

Now, I’m not usually one for rap tunes, but I’ll make an exception for this song. It is so fresh and fun, bright yet chill, and just gives off a really cool vibe. (I know, I sound like a hippie. 😜) Definitely one of my favorite rap songs, if not my absolute favorite!

I found this song on iTunes’s “Free Single of the Week” a few months ago. Just another example of why taking advantage if FSOTW is so beneficial!

(Speaking of FSOTW, this week’s one is really funky and dance-y, too- it’s called “The Way We Are” by Kate Boy. Check it out while it’s free!)

Tell me what your favorite song(s) is/are! I want to know! πŸ˜‰

Stars Dance

Selena Gomez’s new album , Stars Dance, has many pros and many cons.
The music, instrumentally speaking, was very big and fun. All electronic, may I add. The lyrics had no emotional depth, which bugged me very much. After all, one can only listening to a 21 year old pop star sing about being able to do anything and everything for her boyfriend, including making the stars dance and lighting up the moon, ya know?
Aside from the disappointing lack of meaning, this album performs its main task well- to make you want to get up and dance. The incredible instrumental section of “Forget Forever” makes up for the non-existing emotion on the rest of the album.
Personally, I think her last three albums were better than this one by 10000000 times- “Kiss & Tell”, “A Year Without Rain”, and “When The Sun Goes Down” were all magnetic collections of outstanding instrumental sections, beautiful vocals, and captivating lyrics. “Stars Dance”? Not so much.
It’s disappointing, though, because I am such a fan of Selena, and was hoping for this album to be a smash it. Maybe she’ll redeem herself on a future record.

Well, I’ll see ya guys soon, and I hope you like this album a little bit more than I did!

If you read my previous entry, entitled “10 Artists to Watch,” then you may remember me mentioning a singer named Lorde. If you looked her up, good for you! If you didn’t, that’s okay, too! But here today I will go into more detail about this stunning performer, whose songs are quickly rising to the top of the iTunes charts.

1) Her real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor

2) She is from New Zeland

3) Her EP is called “The Love Club”

4) Her birthday is November 7th, 1996 (she’s 16)

5) She has music videos for her songs “Royals” and “Tennis Court”

In my opinion, Lorde is a fantastic singer with a beautiful voice. I can’t wait to hear more from her!

If you know Lorde, or want to look her up, comment below!

One of the most wonderful things about summer vacation is, obviously, going on vacations! And I am both happy and sad to say that tomorrow I will be leaving for the beach, not to be seen again (for a week)! Although I might have wifi down there, I’m not sure, but I will definitely continue blogging after my little break has concluded. πŸ™‚

But I, not gone yet, so I shall post yet one more entry on my blog befor I go! πŸ™‚

It’ll be up today!

So, my friends, this is somewhat farewell. Bye until then! Enjoy my next post!
