Mellow Monday! Dig – Incubus

So for the first time in a long time, I am on time to post this Mellow Monday! Today’s song choice is one of my favourite songs since it was released. I’m not sure why but I feel some sort of emotional connection with Incubus as a band; their songs have got me through a lot of shit in the past and their lyrics are just so captivating.

I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that Brandon’s voice soothed me through my break up with my boyfriend, through the end of friendships and the like. Plus the man is attractive as hell and that’s always a plus point for admiring the unattainable.

There is something just melodic and lulling about the choice of chords in Dig. I’m not sure why but I really love it!

I could have chosen to share Drive with you, their more popular song – which as a mile stone is one of the only songs I learnt, well attempted to learn, to play on guitar. But just known whichever I posted I could tell you I have on many occasions, attempted to sing along too – I’m not a bad singer but I sure as hell ain’t great!

So I’m hoping every single person who stumbles across this blog is having a great Monday and enjoys listening to Incubus and their music as much as I do; whether its your first time or just a gentle reminder that you love them.

I know I mentioned last time getting ready to schedule blog posts, but this time I am ready to do so – I’m feeling especially motivated after finishing a book and wanted to do nothing but talk about it to anyone and everyone who will listen to me ramble on.

Potentially post tomorrow, I’m hitting up a quiz night at my other work place and I won’t turn down a cheeky glass of red!

P.S. Enjoy this cheeky live version

Mellow Monday! (But on a Thursday) 1979 – Smashing Pumpkins

My posting on here has been erratic to say the least. I’m looking to blog over the weekend and prepare plenty of posts for scheduling – an 8 hour hairdressers appointment will surely buy me enough time to get this sorted out, haha.

But in the time between now and then, enjoy my ‘late’ Mellow Monday of 1979 by the Smashing Pumpkins. It’s a great song and I think I’ve had it on repeat so much over the past few days.

Post soon!

Mellow Monday! Amuro Namie – Baby Don’t Cry

This week’s mellow monday is one of my all time favourite Japanese songs, ‘Baby Don’t Cry’ by Amuro Namie. This song is just so relaxing to listen to and her voice is so mesmerising, I can sit here for hours flicking through her music.

I’m not going to add much after this, a part from the general other songs to check out. I am absolutely shattered from work. I will be back Wednesday with a post as I have a day off. I might go for a walk in the morning around the forest by my house.

Songs to check:

  • Hide and Seek
  • Hero
  • Mint
  • Girl Talk
  • How to be a girl

I’m going to sign off now.

Happy reading, and let me know if you like the song.

Mellow Monday! Epik High – Shoebox (ft MYK)

This weeks Mellow Monday! is the song Shoebox by Epik High ft MYK.

Epik High have always been one of my favourite groups – Their music is just sultry. Every song they bring out has a unique and signature ‘Epik High’ vibe. 

The whole Shoebox album is incredible, holding so many individually standing songs. I wont write too much as the album pretty much speaks for itself.

Other songs to check out:

  • Born Hater (ft Beenzino, Verbal Jint, B.I, Mino & Bobby) – this collab has me gassed
  • We Fight Ourselves (ft Younha)
  • Lesson 5 (Timeline)
  • Rich (ft Taeyang)
  • Spoiler
  • Life Is Good (ft Jay Park)

Mellow Monday! Two Door Cinema Club – Are We Ready? (Wreck)

 Hi guys! It’s Eli back with another Mellow Monday post! Today’s Mellow Monday is an old song – I mean it was released 7 months ago. But we celebrate this song and much of their discography because last Thursday, I had the privilege of seeing this band for a fourth time. And needless to say I’m not disappointed.

Two Door Cinema Club for me are a power group. Although many don’t know them by name, everyone at least once has heard one of their songs. 

Even when they experiment with new styles and beats, it’s always recognisable as one of their songs.

Their presence when they perform live is incredible. Their voices alone are so atmospheric and the showman ship is applaudable.

It’s got to a point where friends of mine who I haven’t spoken to in about 4 years, messaged me asking if I was attending the show because one, I love the group. And two, I’m just that predictable.

I’ll keep this post short because I’m currently on the train heading to meet a friend.

Songs I recommend everyone to listen to:

  • Changing of the seasons
  • Something good can work
  • I can talk
  • Remember my name
  • Pyramid
  • Bad decisions

Just to name a few but I do suggest binge listening to their albums because it’s just that good.

I’m hoping to do another post before the week ends so see ya then x

Mellow Monday! Honourable Mention

I know I did a mini Mellow Monday in my January recap post, but I do feel like I need to do an honourable mention to a song.

So I know not many of you will know this band well but 2NE1 were one of those cornerstone groups in k-pop. They paved the way for many groups that followed them, they had a extremely large fanbase, and a catalogue of incredible songs.

This song marks their break up as a band, it’s a very simple song but a very touching one – I mean many fans were broken when Minzy left, and then to hear that they were calling it a night.

I shan’t add too much because the song speaks for itself. Enjoy guys.
