Top Five Friday

Every once in a while I usually share with you guys my top 5 favorite songs. In all honesty I could probably write a top five every week, because I always find some new song from friends or that I hear on the radio! Here are my top 5 before people start busting out the Christmas songs.

#1. Stay the Night – Zedd ft Hayley Williams
I love the lyrics to this song, plus Hayley Williams sounds so good! If you didn’t know Hayley Williams is the lead singer of the band Paramore. While this song is pretty repetitive it has a really good beat that you can’t avoid but enjoying.

#2. Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2 – Drake ft Jay-Z
As usual I’m still listening to music off Drake’s new CD. The beginning of the song is this really chill beat, and then half way through the song it changes. You almost start to think it’s a new song, but don’t let that fool you. I think even if you aren’t a Drake fan this is still a song anyone can like. It also uses hints of Wu Tang Clan’s C.R.E.A.M, which is one of my favorite songs from Wu Tang.

#3. Your New Beloved – Lovelife
My best friend, Trai, sent me this list off Buzzfeed of 30 songs you should listen to this fall, and literally I can’t stop listening to this song on the list. The effects used on the singers voice add to the really cool almost tribal beat in the background. If you like Bastille then you will probably like Lovelife. Honestly you will like Lovelife no matter what!

#4. Afterglow – Wilkinson
This another song that came off of the Buzzfeed list. The music video to this song is really cool along with the beat. The singer is from the UK and has a great voice that goes with it. Her accent is clearly heard, but is what makes her voice so good!

#5. Elastic Heart -Sia ft The Weeknd, and DiploThis song is for the new Hunger Games movie. While I’ve never seen any of the movies I love this song! My favorite part is that if you didn’t know The Weeknd was in the song you get this amazing surprise from him coming in after the first time the chorus played.

Mix Monday

I know a lot of us on the Butler blogs usually do Music Monday, but I thought I would mix things up a bit and do a re(mix) Monday. I started listening to this website that I used to listen to called 8tracks. People can make any kind of playlists with all kinds of different songs. It is kind of like Pandora, but 8tracks tends to offer a lot more of lesser known artists and a lot more remixes of songs! That being said here are my top 5 remixes of songs from 8tracks.

#1 No Angels – Bastille
Bastille is a band from the UK. They have their own songs, but also have really awesome remixes. One of them is No Angels, which mixes the newer band The Xx and their new song, Angels, with the old school TLC song, No Scrubs. I can’t stop listening to it!

#2. Two Weeks of Hip Hop – The Hood Internet
I really like indie bands, and as many people know I love rap. This song combines Two Weeks by Grizzly Bear and rappers Dead Prez. It’s just a really cool spin on the Grizzly Bears song because it’s such a chilled back song with really cool instrumental. The rap just adds this really awesome twist. You notice the Grizzly Bears song more towards the end.

#3 Wicked Games – Huglife Remix
I think I have mentioned the original version of this song in a previous music Monday. This song is originally by The Weeknd, but Huglife does a really interesting mix on it. I think it’s just cool because the girls voice is really airy and cool. Plus the weird echoing they put on it just make the remix work.

I know that there are a lot more I had, but I can’t think of them right now, so maybe next Music Monday will once again be a Mix Monday!
