Hey everyone, so I know I haven’t done one of these in a while, my drafts folder is backed up with a few of these ‘Tracks I’m Loving’ posts, but I’ve been so busy that I’ve just not got around to posting them.
This one is from February, and I’m not going to go into individual explanations of why I like these tracks like I normally do, because I think you can pretty much tell from the tone of the songs how I was feeling at the time. However, I will say that they’re all beautiful songs and I personally think that they’re all worth a listen.
Jason Mraz – I Won’t Give Up
Keith Urban – Stupid boy
Gabrielle Aplin – The Liar and The Lighter
Taylor Swift – I knew you were trouble
Rascal Flatts – Stand
The one thing I will say about this song is that it’s a beyond beautiful song. I don’t think country music is as popular in the UK as it should be, and this song makes you wonder why not. Its delicate guitar driven verses leave the smooth vocals and poignant lyrics to be the main focus, and the chorus injects a heavy dose of emotion, the drums accentuating the uplifting lyrics. It’s emotive without ever over doing it, the music is never pushed too far and the vocals glide easily with no sign of force, it’s comfortable, and the lyrics are really inspiring and hopeful. Stand.
Elissa Franceschi – All Theese Days
This track is uplifting, and most of all empowering. It shows that even in the midst of a difficult situation there is hope, and shows that you can get through it.
Faith Hill – Cry
